Flintoft also averaged 61.4 yards over 37 total kickoffs and earned a team nomination for CFL Most Outstanding Special Teams Player.

He attended UCLA from 2014-2018 and took over main punting duties in his third season. Flintoft’s average of 43.8 yards per punt was good for third all-time in Bruins’ program history. Those credentials would earn him a 2019 mini-camp invite with the Denver Broncos.
