Louis Hedley was born in Mandurah, Australia. Hedley comes with quite the backstory: According to the Miami Herald, the 24-year-old was struggling to make it in Aussie rules football in between stints building scaffolding in the Australian desert. He was announced as the Miami Hurricanes football newest signing on Wednesday, February 7th, 2019. The muscular, heavily-tattooed former scaffolder has created an America’s latest viral sensation.

Sports Illustrated described Hedley, as the “coolest-looking punter ever”. The New York Post went with the “most intimidating punter you’ve ever seen”.
Miami coach Manny Diaz had some fun with his new recruit on Twitter, posting a meme of a kangaroo playing a guitar to welcome Hedley to the program. He also added one of Bart Simpson spinning the globe to find Australia. National Signing Day is on Wednesday, 6th Feb in the U.S., but the time difference in Australia allowed Hedley to sign early.

Hedley has been in the US learning his trade for the past couple of years, playing at the City College of San Francisco in 2017 before red-shirting (sitting out) last season.
He averaged 38.6 yards per punt the season prior — better than the 38.3 yards per punt his new school averaged this past season using Jack Spicer and Zach Feagles. It put them 115th out of 130 FBS teams.
Feagles left Miami, meaning Hedley – who has three years of eligibility left – should have the opportunity to compete for the starting job.
Hedley hopes to join the growing number of Australian punters in the NFL.
