The Ray Guy Award semifinalists have been chosen by the Augusta Sports Council. The awards honors the nation’s best collegiate punter, but according to the press release, it’s more than statistics.

“Particular emphasis was placed on net punting average, number of times a punt was downed or kicked out-of-bounds inside the opponents 20-yard line, total yardage punted, average returned yardage and percentage of punts not returned,” the release said. “The winner must display team leadership, self-discipline and have a positive impact on the team’s success”.

Finalists who will be announced on Tuesday, November 29th. The winner will be announced on Thursday, December 8th at The Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN.
