Alabama punter JK Scott has been one of the best punters in the nation since his freshman season in 2014. As it turns out, he’s probably among the best in college football at something else, too.
During the Crimson Tide’s media day Saturday ahead of the College Football Playoff national championship, Scott was challenged to solve a Rubik’s Cube and he did it far faster than the average person could.
With senior offensive lineman Brandon Moore giving the play-by-play commentary, Scott completed the puzzle in around 1:18 time. Previously, his personal best was 1:32.
The video was done on Facebook Live from Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.
Later at the same event, Scott topped his record again by finishing the Rubik’s Cube in 1:16.
Now a junior, Scott has averaged 48.0 (2014, first nationally), 44.2 (2015, 24th nationally) and 47.44 (2016, third nationally) yards per punt during his three seasons at Alabama. As a freshman, he was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, which is presented annually to college football’s top punter.
Moore was one of four Alabama veteran walk-ons who were awarded scholarships in August.
Alabama plays Clemson in a rematch of last season’s national title game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Monday night.
