Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIA’S stun­ning record of claim­ing US col­lege foot­ball’s top award for pun­ters the past five years ap­pears set to grow to six.

Two of the three can­di­dates for this year’s Ray Guy Award are Aus­tralians who grew up play­ing Aussie rules.

Perth’s Mitch Wish­nowsky, punt­ing for the Univer­sity of Utah, and Wan­garatta’s James Smith – for the Univer­sity of Cincin­nati – are on the short­list for to­day’s Ray Guy Award an­nounce­ment at a cer­e­mony in At­lanta. The lone Amer­i­can can­di­date is Texas A& M’s Braden Mann.
