Kentucky junior punter Max Duffy is up for a fairly impressive honor on Tuesday morning.
On Monday afternoon, Duffy was named to this week’s Ray Guy Award’s Ray’s 8 honor list, highlighting him as one of the eight best punters in all of college football in week two.
The Punter of the Week Award will be announced on Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. ET.
Duffy followed up his sensational opening-week performance against Toledo with yet another impressive effort in Kentucky’s 38-17 victory over Eastern Michigan on Saturday night at Kroger Field. Although he only punted three times, the junior Wildcat averaged 43.3 yards per kick and buried the Eagles inside the 20-yard line on all three times. The starting field position for those three drives were the Eagles’ own 8, 11 and 13-yard line and they did not score on any of them.
Duffy, a Perth, Australia native, has been a weapon for the Cats in his 15 games with the team. He currently is averaging 45.52 on 69 career punts, which is the highest career average in program history. He will officially qualify for that record when he reached 75 punts. He currently ranks second nationally this season with a 50.4-yard average.
