Punter respect.

More Watch List Mania!

Sam Irwin-Hill, Arkansas' ambidextrous punter, has been named to the Ray Guy Award watch list. The award recognizes the top punter in America.

Last season, Irwin-Hill punted 46 times for 2,038 yards, an average of 44.3 yards per kick that ranked 5th in the SEC but just 0.2 yards behind the 3rd best average. He led the conference with 20 punts inside the 20-yard line. His 79-yard punt last season was the longest by any SEC player.

In a few fake punt situations, he completed a 24-yard pass against Rutgers and took off running twice, once for a 12-yard gain and once for a 4-yard loss.

In early November, the Ray Guy Award committee will meet to select the ten semi-finalists, who will be announced on Nov.14. A national body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) sports information directors, coaches, media representatives, and previous Ray Guy Award winners will then vote for the top three finalists, to be announced on Nov. 24. After the finalists are named, the voting body will cast ballots again to select the nation’s top punter. The winner will be announced live during The Home Depot College Football Awards airing on ESPN on Thursday, Dec.11, 2014

As always: a spot on the watch list is mostly a recognition of past accomplishments and potential for the upcoming season. A player does not have to be on the watch list to win the award.
