Maryland punter Colton Spangler was named to the Ray Guy Award preseason watch list, it was announced Wednesday.

This is the second straight year the senior has been selected to the watch list for the award, which is given to the top collegiate punter in the nation. He was one of five Big Ten players named to this year’s preseason list.

Spangler is coming off a career season in 2022, during which he was an All-Big Ten honorable mention. He averaged over 45 yards per punt, which ranked 16th nationally, and pinned the opposition inside the 20-yard line 16 times.

The 10 semifinalists for the Ray Guy Award will be named in mid-November. The winner will be revealed during the College Football Awards show in December.
