Hi, my name is Andrew (or Drew) Rosten. My brother started this blog for me as a Christmas present. Consider it a gift that keeps on giving. I am recently a part-time sports clerk at the Herald & Review in Decatur, but am sometimes asked to report on sporting events in the Bloomington-Normal area. I graduated from Clinton High School and Illinois State University in Normal four years later with a degree in journalism. In my senior year at ISU, I was a sports reporter for the Daily Vidette.
Devin Hester Stands Alone in NFL Record Book with Latest Punt Return
With 11:32 left in the second quarter, Devin Hester returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown to put the Chicago Bears up 24-10 against the Carolina Panthers.
With that touchdown, Hester has returned 11 punts to the end zone in his career. Prior to the Carolina game, he was tied with Eric Metcalf for most punt-return TDs in an NFL career.
Now, he is in the record book all by himself.
