Foster on watch list for Ray Guy Award
Foster is one of only five sophomores to make the list and one of three SEC punters selected, including 2012 semifinalists Kyle Christy of Florida and Steven Clark of Auburn.
As a freshman, Foster posted a 42.9 yards-per-punt average, the best mark ever by a UK freshman punter. The strong season led Foster to Freshman All-America honors by Scout.com and CollegeFootballNews.com, while SEC coaches tabbed Foster a Freshman All-SEC performer.
The Franklin, Tenn., native averaged a season-high 50.7 yards in UK's win over Kent State, while his longest punt was a 58-yard blast against Arkansas. In all, Foster pinned opponents inside their own 20-yard line 13 times last season.
Foster's naming to the list marks the third time in the last four seasons that Kentucky has had a nominee. Ryan Tydlacka made the preseason watch list for the award in 2010 and 2011.
The complete list of candidates will be released on Oct. 25. In early November, the Ray Guy Award committee will meet to select the 10 semifinalists who will be announced on Nov. 8. The winner will be announced live during The Home Depot College Football Awards airing on ESPN on Thursday, Dec. 12.
