Ray Guy to be honored at halftime on Thursday

Legendary Raiders punter Ray Guy will receive his Pro Football Hall of Fame ring during halftime of Thursday Night Football’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs at O.Co Coliseum.

Guy was enshrined in Canton, Ohio on Aug. 2, 2014 by Hall of Fame head coach John Madden. Owner Al Davis, Madden and 20 other former Raiders are currently enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Many of those Hall of Famers will be present on Thursday for the halftime festivities and will participate in ceremonies that will consist of a special video and the presentation of Guy’s Hall of Fame ring.

Guy became the first punter ever selected in the first round of the draft, as well as the first true punter ever selected to the Hall of Fame. He had a career average of 42.4 yards in 14 season (207 games) with the Silver & Black.

He only fell below the 40-yard average mark once in his 14 seasons, during the strike shortened 1982 season when he averaged 39.1 yards.
