James Latest Mountaineer on Watch List

Another Mountaineer player has made the watch list for a national award.

West Virginia University senior Todd James is one of 32 college football punters named to the 2003 Ray Guy Award watch list as potential candidates for the top collegiate punter of the year, the Greater Augusta Sports Council announced today.

The Ray Guy Award will be presented to the nation's best collegiate punter as determined by a national selection committee made up of sports writers, college football coaches and sports information directors, former punters and members designated by the Greater Augusta Sports Council. Among the statistics to be included in determining the Ray Guy Award winner are total yardage, number of times a punt is downed or kicked out of bounds inside of the opponent's 20-yard line, net average, average return yardage and percentage not returned.

The watch list will be narrowed to ten semi-finalists in early November. The national voting body will then vote for three finalists. From those three, a winner will be selected in late November.
