    Who holds the Spring Game record for the longest punt return (91 yards)? Clue; Gotta go way back to the Devaney era.

    Nope, not Johnny R. superstar. Although the player in question played during the Rodgers era.

    Blahak had a 90 plus yard return in 71 so that is probably the correct answer!

    Yep. Joe Blahak is correct. 1971 Spring Game. Columbus Scotus High school maybe?

    Good job.

    Obviously not the record holder, but anybody else remember a guy named Mike Demps have a big return in maybe the early 2000s?

    It may have been a KO return, rather than punt, but it's just something that sticks out in my mind.

    Demps did have a 100 yard kickoff return in the 1999 Spring Game. Good memory.
