Maryland senior punter Colton Spangler was added to the Ray Guy Award Watch List, it was announced Tuesday.

The annual award created in 2000 honors the nation’s best collegiate punter. Maryland has never had a punter win the award. Spangler is one of 63 FBS football players on the list.

Spangler currently ranks seventh in the nation in average punt yardage this season at 46.3. The Terps have been able to cover his punts very well, only allowing 43 return yards through six games.

Spangler is currently a part of a talented Maryland special teams group and is the holder for kicker Chad Ryland, who is widely considered an NFL prospect.
