Grand Island native Brett Kern is having himself one heck of a season as the Tennessee Titans' punter. Kern has been booming his kicks this year at a near-record pace. The Pro Bowler entered last week's game with a punting average of 51.6 yards – better than the NFL's all-time record of 51.4, set all the way back in 1940 by Washington's Sammy Baugh. But Kern had a to…

Williams admitted …
