Augusta, GA (November 25, 2013) - The Augusta Sports Council has announced three finalists for the 2013 Ray Guy Award. All players are first-time finalists for the annual award.
The finalists were selected by a national voting body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) coaches, sports information directors, national media, and former Ray Guy Award winners. The voters will cast a second round of ballots to decide the winner. The candidates were evaluated on their overall statistics and contribution to the team. Particular emphasis was placed on the punter’s net average, percentage of total punts inside the 20-yard line and percentage of punts not returned.
