RUTGERS PRESS RELEASE:
Rutgers punter Adam Korsak is the winner of the 2022 Ray Guy Award as the best punter in the nation, it was announced Thursday on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show live on ESPN. This marks the first on-field national award won by a Rutgers football player in program history.

The Ray Guy Award winner is selected by a voting body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) communications directors, national media and former Ray Guy Award winners. Punters are evaluated on their overall statistics and contribution to the team. Particular emphasis is placed on the following statistics; net average, percentage of total punts inside the 20-yard line and percentage of punts not returned.

“This is a well-deserved honor and a great achievement,” head coach Greg Schiano said. “Adam is the best punter I’ve worked with in 35 years of coaching and really impacts the game. A three-time captain, his leadership has been just as valuable. We will miss Adam and look forward to watching him at the next level.”

The NCAA all-time leader in punting attempts (349) and yardage (15,318), Korsak led a unit that held opponents to -11 return yards this season, best in the nation, with just one positive return against in 75 attempts. He pinned a national-best 32 punts inside the 20 to help Rutgers rank third overall in net punting (43.57).

Reaction to the award was incredible!
