Allen on Guy ‘Watch List’
Louisiana Tech University punter Ryan Allen has been added to the Ray Guy Award Nomination List, an award given to the nation’s top punter.
Allen was originally nominated for the award but was left off the initial nomination list release due to a clerical error.
Heading into week 10, Allen leads the nation with 29 punts inside the 20 (56 percent of his punts) and is sending 40 percent (22 of 55) of his punts over 50 yards. He is ranked eighth in the nation in punting, averaging 45.87 yards per game. Only three of his punts have rolled into the end zone for touchbacks and his impressive hang time has allowed only 19 of his 55 punts (34.5 percent) to be returned.
