Lou Groza and Ray Guy finalists: kickers and punters honored
Roberto Aguayo, Anthony Fera and Marvin Kloss were named Groza Award finalists. Tom Hornsey, Drew Kaser and Cody Webster were the punters honored by the Ray Guy award.
The best kickers and punters received recognition along with the rest of the college football on Monday, as the Lou Groza Award and Ray Guy Award announced their finalists.
Both awards are usually met with scrutiny from fans who feel their particular kicker or punter was snubbed; but it is difficult to make any argument against any of the finalists. Aguayo set the FBS record for most consecutive extra points in one season, having made all 80 of his attempts thus far; Kloss leads the nation with field goals of at least 40 yards and only seven of Drew Kaser’s 26 punts have been returned -- just to name a few of the finalists' accomplishments.
