The 2007 Contenders: Groza/Ray Guy Awards
Sometimes they're sought with newspaper ads.
That's what Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach did last week when he placed an ad in the Daily Toreador, Tech's student newspaper. Leach was in search of a punter after injuries and defections left the Red Raiders without one this spring.
Every coach in America stresses the importance of the kicking game, but not all are willing to offer kickers and punters scholarships. That's like acknowledging a need for medicine, but refusing to buy it.
A good kicker and punter can make the difference between winning and losing, and the Lou Groza and Ray Guy awards have been established to recognize the best.
So, Rivals.com presents its top five contenders for both awards in 2007. Rest assured none joined their teams by answering a want-ad.
