Rutgers football punter Adam Korsak was selected by the Augusta Sports Council to the Ray Guy Award watch list on Wednesday for the fourth consecutive year. The award honors the nation’s best collegiate punter and Korsak has proven worthy of consideration during his entire Rutgers career. He was named a semifinalist in 2019.
The award is named for the former standout at Southern Miss and longtime punter for the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders who is in the National High School Hall of Fame, the College Football Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Korsak was set a program record with a net punt average of 42.27 yards last season, which ranked second in the Big Ten and eighth nationally. In 48 attempts, he had eight punts of at least 50 yards, forced 22 fair catches and had 21 punts inside the 20 yard line with zero touchbacks. He was named Second Team All-Big Ten by the media and Third Team All-Big Ten by the coaches last season, his third straight in earning conference honors. He also earned Academic All-Big Ten and Big Ten Distinguished Scholar honors.
The Aussie has averaged 43.2 yards per punt on 202 career attempts. His stats include 75 punts downed inside the 20, along with 30 punts over 50 yards and just five touchbacks. The senior will look to close out his collegiate career with his best season yet and he remains a major factor in Rutgers establishing strong special teams play once again this fall.
