Kings High School graduate and Miami University senior Zac Murphy has been named a candidate for the 2013 Ray Guy Award, given annually to the nation's top collegiate punter.
According to NCFAA, the Ray Guy Award is named after Ray Guy, the only punter ever selected in the first round of the NFL draft. He was an All-American at Southern Miss and was selected to seven Pro Bowls during his NFL career.
Murphy currently leads the nation in punting average (47.4), has 15 punts of over 50 yards, has downed 11 punts inside the opponent’s 20-yard line and has just six touchbacks this season.
Ten semifinalists for the 2013 Ray Guy Award will be announced on Nov. 8 and a national body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) sports information directors, coaches, media representatives and previous Ray Guy Award winners will vote for the top three finalists, who will be identified on Nov. 25.
