LSU senior punter Jay Bramblett has been named to the watch list for the Ray Guy Award, the Augusta Sports Council announced on Tuesday.
The Ray Guy Award is presented annually to top punter in college football.
Bramblett, in his second year at LSU after transferring from Notre Dame, brings a 44.2 career punting average into the 2023 season. A second-team Academic All-America in 2022, Bramblett averaged 44.5 yards on 49 punts in his first season with the Tigers.
Bramblett’s 44.5 average last year ranked as the seventh-best single-season total in school history. He ranked No. 2 in the SEC and No. 11 nationally in punting average in 2022.
A graduate of Notre Dame, Bramblett is pursuing a master’s degree at LSU in leadership and human resource development. He was named to the National Football Foundation’s Hampshire Honor Society during the spring.
The Ray Guy Award is the fifth of 16 national award watch lists that will be announced over the next two weeks.
