Lettered at OSU: 2004-05
High school: Whittier Christian HS | La Habra, CA
Awards/All-conference: 2005 first team All-Pac-10

What others say:  Oregon State coach Mike Riley - “I don’t think there’s a better punter in the country.  If we let him punt for distance, he could lead the Pac-10. We use him as a directional punter, and he has been sensational."

Career synopsis:  Never has there been a more deadly punter in Oregon State's modern history then Sam Paulescu.

His 42.7 career average is the second highest in school history while his seclection to the Pac-10's first team is the only time a punter at Oregon State has earned that honor.

As a senior Paulescu was instrumental in the team's success as he placed the ball anywhere he wanted helping the team win the field position game. His 43.0 average as a senior is the fourth highest total in school history.

Career statistics: 128 attempts for 5,464 yards, 42.7 average, long of 69

Runner up: Carl Tobey (2001-03) - He wasn't stellar, but he wasn't bad either as he finished his career with a 40.04 average.

Others worth mentioning: Kyle Loomis (2006)
