Cody Webster named finalist for Ray Guy Award

Purdue punter Cody Webster was named one of three finalists for the Ray Guy Award, which is given to the nation's top collegiate punter.

Webster, a senior, is up for the award along with Memphis punter Tom Hornsey and Drew Kaser of Texas A&M. He is averaging 43.5 yards per punt on 65 tries this season and has put opponents inside their 20-yard line 22 times.

The Harrisburg, Pa., native has had 15 punts of more than 50 yards for the Boilermakers this season and two 73-yarders. Purdue has benefitted from punt-induced turnovers on a few of his kicks, as well: Cincinnati, Iowa and Illinois all bobbled kicks, which resulted in turnovers.

The winner of the Ray Guy award will be announced Dec. 12 at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Orlando, Fla. Purdue athletics confirmed that Webster will be in attendance.
