    A WELL DESERVED AWARD TO A TALENTED PUNTER AND ALL ROUND NICE GUY. THE PUNTING TALENT IN THE COLLEGE GAME COMING OUT OF AUSTRALIA IS SIMPLY AWESOME AT THE MOMENT WITH SOME OF THE BEST IN COUNTRY COMING FROM DOWN UNDER. WITH THE LIKES OF TOM HACKETT AT UTAH AND GUYS LIKE DARCY WILLIAMSON, TIM GLEESON, JORDAN BERRY AND MANY MORE INCLUDING THE NUMBER ONE HIGH SCHOOL PUNTER IN UTAH BAILEY KENTER, IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE ANOTHER AUSSIE WINS THIS AWARD.

    Interesting pic. The award is for the best punter, but the pic shows a holder for a place kicker. Attention to detail Mr. McGuire.
