Ray Guy Award Watch List: Kansas Punter Ron Doherty Makes List Of 25

Kansas punter Ron Doherty is one of 25 players chosen this preseason to be a part of the Ray Guy Award watch list for 2012. It's an award given annually to celebrate the best punter in college football, so Doherty is definitely among select company for the honor.

Matt Tait writes, "Doherty, a 5-foot-11, 215-pound kicker from Klein, Texas, finished the 2011 season third in the Big 12 and 27th in the country with a 42.8-yard punting average. He had 13 punts of 50 yards or more during the 2011 season and dropped 15 of his punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line."

The Ray Guy Award winner is selected by a national voting body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) coaches, sports information directors, national media and former Ray Guy Award winners. Punters are evaluated on their overall statistics and contribution to the team. Particular emphasis is place on the following statistics: net average, percentage of total punts inside the 20-yard line and percentage of punts not returned.
