The Sports Council will continue to accept additions to the Ray Guy Award watch list until October 13, 2003. In early November, the watch list will be narrowed to the top ten candidates. In late November a national voting committee will select the three finalists for the third annual Ray Guy Award. The Ray Guy Award national voting members include various sports writers, college football coaches, former punters, and members designated by the Greater Augusta Sports Council.
On December 11, 2003, the three Ray Guy Award finalists will travel to Orlando, Florida, for the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show, with the winner being announced and presented with the award live during the telecast. Further, the Ray Guy Award winner will be invited to Augusta, Georgia for an exciting two-day celebration, including the Greater Augusta Sports Awards Gala, the Ray Guy Kicking & Punting Academy, and community appearances.
