Nebraska senior punter Sam Foltz on Thursday was named to the Ray Guy Award Watch List, given to the nation's top punter. He is one of 27 punters on the list, which includes two from the Big Ten.
After averaging 44.2 yards per punt and recording 16 punts of 50 yards or more, Foltz was named the conference Punter of the Year in the Big Ten. In the last decade only Brett Maher averaged a high punting average at Nebraska.
Foltz’s best game of the season came in a loss against Northwestern. The junior punted six times, averaging 50.7 yards per punt and recording a 63-yarder. His long for the season was 67 against BYU.
Foltz also served as the team’s holder.
