Trey Barrow of the Missouri Tigers is one of 69 nominees for the 2012 Ray Guy Award, given to the nation's top collegiate punter. The honor is named after the College Football Hall of Famer and former Oakland Raider.
Barrow is averaging 42 yards per punt this season for the Tigers, with 45 percent of his kicks landing inside the opponents 20-yard line. The punter was especially impressive against No. 1 Alabama in Missouri's 42-10 loss, booming kicks of 69 and 61 yards.
The Moberly High School graduate holds the all-time records at Missouri for punting average in a game (58.0 against Arizona State on Sep. 9, 2011), season (44.82 in 2011) and career (44.83).
From the list of 69, 10 semi-finalists will be selected on Nov. 9. Those 10 will be narrowed down to three finalists on Nov. 19, as voted on by coaches, media members and previous Ray Guy Award winners.
