The award is given annually to the top punter in the nation. According to the award website, net punting average, number of times punt is downed or kicked out of bounds inside the opponents 20-yard line, total yardage punted, average returned yardage and percentage of punts not returned with particular emphasis placed on net punting average are some of the statistics used to gauge the award.
Following the announcement, R Football tweeted out a list of Korsak’s accomplishments on the year. Needless to say, he’s a pro at pinning opponents deep:
