McManus named candidate for Ray Guy Award

Temple’s Brandon McManus is a candidate for the Ray Guy Award, which goes to the nation’s top collegiate punter.

That’s a tremendous accomplishment, considering this is the junior’s first season punting in college. 

The North Penn product, however, ranks second nationally with an average of 47.66 yards per punt. He set a Temple record with a punting average of 59.3 yards against Buffalo on Oct. 15.

The award will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists on Nov. 11. The winner will be announced Dec. 8 on ESPN.
