Hawk Punter on Ray Guy Watch List

Posted:

IOWA CITY - University of Iowa junior Ryan Donahue is one of only nine student-athletes named to the watch list for the 2009 Ray Guy Award, which identifies the nation's top collegiate punter. The pre-season list is comprised of a select group of punters who stood out during the 2008 season, including five returning Ray Guy semi-finalists, which includes Donahue.

Donahue, who was a second team all-Big Ten performer, punted 50 times his sophomore campaign.  He averaged 41.6 yards per punt, which ranked sixth in the Big Ten and 35th nationally.  Donahue averaged 42.4 yards per kick in eight conference games, which ranked fourth.  Donahue recorded at least one punt over 50 yards in nine of the last 11 contests, including a long of 64 yards in Iowa's triumph over Iowa State.  Additionally, 19 of his punts were downed inside the 20.
