A week after the 2019 college football season ended, prognosticators are already predicting who will be the best of the best in the 2020 season. One of them is a Kentucky Wildcat.
Compiled by ESPN’s Chris Low, the team is filled with names from blue-blood programs. At the very bottom you’ll find special teams, where Max Duffy has firmly cemented his spot as college football’s top punter.
The Ray Guy Award winner as the top punter in college football returns for his junior season looking to take it to another level. That’s saying something, considering that the talented Aussie led the country in punting with a 48.1-yard average. Only 10 of Duffy’s 47 punts were returned, and 23 landed inside the 20-yard line.
This All-American consideration is nothing new to Duffy. In his Ray Guy Award-winning 2019 season he accumulated First-Team All-American from the Associated Press, Walter Camp, ESPN.com, The Sporting News and AFCA FBS Coaches. Not too shabby.
The 2020 season will be the Australian kicker’s last season of eligibility. Enjoy the boomstick while you can.
