Toledo senior punter Brett Kern has been named as one of the ten semifinalists for the 2007 Ray Guy Award, given annually to the nation's top collegiate punter.
Kern is currently 6th in the nation in punting, averaging a whopping 46.2 yards per punt. He has booted 15 punts inside the opponent's 20 yard line this year. Last Saturday against Northern Illinois he should off his athletic ability as he took a bad snap and ran 50 yards for a first down, setting up a Rocket touchdown.
Brett Kern made the top 10 from a list of 56 punters who were nominated for the honor earlier in the season. The award itself is named after Ray Guy, a 2004 College Football Hall of Fame Inductee. A national voting body made up of Division I FBS coaches, sports information directors, national media, and former punters will decide on the three award finalists.
The list of ten semifinalits are as follows:
Brett Kern – Toledo – Senior
Durant Brooks – Georgia Tech – Senior
Keenyn Crier – Arizona – Freshman
Kevin Huber – Cincinnati – Junior
Andrew Larson – California – Senior
Chris Miller – Ball State – Junior
