During the month of February, (Black History Month) members of the All-American team will be featured on the website daily. Today we put the spot light on:

Florida A&M’s Chris Faddoul: (Punter)

#43  (Junior)
5’11”  210lbs
Wesley Chapel, FL
(Wiregrass Ranch High School) 

2019 First Team All -MEAC Conference Team
#1 Black College Football Average Yards per Punt (46)
#2 FCS Football Avergae Yards Per Punt (46)


Rattlers  Head Coach Willie Simmons  had to be relieved that any time the Orange and Green had to punt the ball he had Chris Faddoul in the FAMU Arsenal.  The Rattler Punter averaged 46 yards per punt and changed field position anytime the team from Tallahassee needed.



Faddoul has been one of the most consistent punters over the past two years in NCAA Division I FCS. During his sophomore season, he led the country in punting and this season, the Wesley Chapel, Fla. native finished number two in all of FCS Football in yards per punt.


Faddoul registered 40 punts for 1,841 yards, with 19 punts placed inside the 20-yardline, with only five touchbacks. In addition, Chris  had a season-long punt of 72 yards on Oct. 20 in the 34-31  overtime win over eventual Black College National Champion  North Carolina A&T State.


The Rattler Punter was most definitely instrumental in helping  FAMU finish the 2019 season with 9 wins against only  2 losses and ranked number two on The Final 2019 Urban Media Today Black College Football Poll.
