Chas Henry one of three finalists for Ray Guy Award



Florida senior punter Chas Henry on Monday was named one of three finalists for the Ray Guy Award, given annually to the nation's top collegiate punter.

It is the second consecutive year Henry has been among the three finalists for the award.

Henry has punted 40 times for 1,892 yards (47.3 average) and 14 of his 34 punts (41.2 percent) have been 50 yards or more through 11 games in 2010. Fifteen of his punts have landed inside the 20-yard line and only 11 have been fair caught.

Henry has also taken over kicking duties for the Gators following an injury to kicker Caleb Sturgis four games into the season. He was named the SEC Co-Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in Florida’s 34-31 overtime win against Georgia after he kicked the team’s winning field goal.

The presentation of the Ray Guy Award will be featured on The Home Depot College Football Awards show live on Thursday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m. on ESPN.

The other finalists are Iowa's Ryan Donahue and Georgia's Drew Butler - who won the award in 2009.
