The Augusta Sports Council announced the preseason watch list for the 2019 Ray Guy Award, which honors the nation’s top collegiate punter, and Kansas junior Kyle Thompson was one of 26 players on the prestigious list.

Thompson was the Big 12’s top punter in 2018, averaging 43.3 yards per punt. He recorded 17 kicks of 50 yards or longer and dropped 26 of his punts inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. Thompson turned in a career-long 76-yard punt in KU’s season-finale against Texas.

Ryan Bujcevski of Texas and Devin Anctil of Kansas State were the only other Big 12 punters on the preseason watch list. The winner of the award will be announced live during The Home Depot College Football Awards airing on ESPN on Thursday, December 12, 2019.
