He made his 14th punt of 60 yards or more during a game against the University of Alabama in Birmingham in November 2018, breaking the NCAA FBS single-season record set by former Wake Forest punter Ryan Plackemeier in 2005.
After the regular season, Mann was awarded the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year and made the first team all-SEC by the league’s coaches and the Associated Press.
He was named into the first team All-America by numerous publications and organizations, including the AP, the AFCA, Athlon Sports, CBS Sports, ESPN, the FWAA, Sporting News, Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report, College Football News, USA Today, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF).
The Associated Press, the American Football Coaches Association, the Football Writers Association of America, Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation all named him on their All-America teams, making him the 10th unanimous All-American to come out of Texas A&M.
