Clemson, SC--Clemson punter Cole Chason has been named one of 40 punters in the nation named to the Ray Guy Award Watch List. The Ray Guy Award is presented by the Greater Augusta Sports Council and is given to the nation's best collegiate punter as determined by a national selection committee made up of sports writers, college football coaches and sports information directors, former punters and members designated by the Greater Augusta Sports Council.


Among the statistics used to identify the Ray Guy Award winner are total yardage punted, number of times a punt is downed or kicked out of bounds inside the opponents 20-yard line, net average, average returned yardage, and percentage of punts not returned.


Chason, a red-shirt junior from Roswell, GA is one of five punters named to the watch list from the Atlantic Coast Conference. In 2004, Chason punted 66 times with a gross average of 40.2 yards and a net average of 36.2. He also had five punts over 50 yards and 18 of his kicks were downed inside the 20-yard line.


In addition to his duties as the Clemson punter, Chason is also the holder on Clemson placekicks. His handling of an errant snap and successful placement was a big part of Jad Dean's winning field goal against Texas A&M in the season opener.
