MANHATTAN, Kan. — Kansas State senior Ty Zentner is a candidate for the top punting honor in the country — the 2022 Ray Guy Award.
Zentner, a graduate of Shawnee Heights High School near Topeka, Kansas, was an Honorable Mention All-Big 12 pick last season after averaging 43.7 yards per punt.
That mark tied for the fifth best in K-State history.
Sixteen of his punts traveled more than 50 yards. Zentner had only four touchbacks in 2021.
It's the first time a Wildcat has been up for the Ray Guy award since Devin Anctil was a preseason candidate back in 2019.
