Mortell, a junior, was added to last year’s Ray Guy Award Watch List during the season. He finished the season ranking third in the Big Ten with a punting average of 43.3 yards. His average was also third in Minnesota history. In 2013, Mortell recorded 15 punts of 50 yards or more and landed 21 punts inside the 20-yard line. He was an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten selection.
