Ravens Profile: Alan Cox

August 12, 2002|By Mary Beth Kozak

Alan Cox

Position: Punter

College: Washington State

Who he is: This rookie free agent was a two-year standout at Washington State after transferring from Snow (Utah) Junior College. He compiled 2,628 yards on 64 punts and averaged 41.1 yards a punt as a senior. His longest punt was 62 yards, and he kicked 15 inside the 20-yard line. He also had seven punts of 50 yards or longer as a junior.

Favorite football moment: "When I was at Washington State, we were at the Sun Bowl and playing Purdue just this last winter, and I got the opportunity to pick up the snap and run the ball and pick up a first down. It was kind of a momentum-swinger in the game and it came at a pivotal time and it was a great opportunity for me."

Ravens mentor: "Not one in particular. I've actually just been able to pick up little things from everybody -- little different attributes to help me pick up my game and help me get more confidence and see what I can do to better myself."

What he brought to camp: "Pictures of my little girl, who is about 3 weeks old. I only got to spend a week with her, and her and my wife are back home. I got little pictures of them and I kind of cling on to them."
