Cal punter Bryan Anger is officially a candidate for the Ray Guy Award, it was announced today. Anger was on the preseason watch list but the list of 54 official candidates was revealed today by the Augusta Sports Council.
Anger is currently 12th in the nation in punt average at 45.2 yards per punt. That number has been brought down by a handful of rugby punts he has been asked to do this season against teams with aggressive punt block schemes.
The Ray Guy Award is given annually to the nation’s top punter. Anger was a semifinalist for the award in 2008 and 2010.
