Senior one of 10 candidates

Pitt senior Dan Hutchins has been named one of 10 semifinalists for the Ray Guy Award, annually presented to the nation’s top collegiate punter by the Augusta Sports Council.

The candidates were evaluated on their overall statistics and contribution to the team. Particular emphasis was placed on the punter’s net average, percentage of total punts inside the 20-yard line, and percentage of punts not returned.

Hutchins (Williamsport, Pa./Loyalsock Township) is averaging 45.5 yards on 35 punts. Eleven of his punts have been downed inside the 20-yard line (31%). An impressive 54% of his punts have not been returned. The Panthers boast a 41.2 net punting average.

A national voting body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) coaches, sports information directors, national media and former Ray Guy Award winners will decide the three award finalists, who will be named on November 22. Voters will then cast a second round of ballots to decide the winner.

The live presentation of the Ray Guy Award will be featured on ESPN’s The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, December 9, at 7 p.m.
