The senior was rewarded for a very strong season by making the final 10 for the position's highest honor

For much of the last two season's Arizona State's special teams units have had their struggles, from field goal kicking to kick coverage to returns. But there's been one area that has consistently been outstanding, and was recognized on a national level as a result.

On Friday, senior punter Josh Hubner was named one of 10 finalists for the Ray Guy Award, which recognizes the most outstanding punter in college football. For any Sun Devil fan who has watched Hubner in action, it's immediately clear he's very deserving.

This season, Hubner has shown both a very powerful leg, with kicks of 66 and 73 yards in recent weeks, as well as the ability to accurately pin the ball deep in opponent's territory.

He currently ranks third in the nation in punting average at 47.4 yards-per-kick, and has pinned opponents inside their 20-yard line 16 times.

"Our punter is absolutely exceptional," ASU head coach Todd Graham said during his weekly press conference. "Our punter is, no question in my mind, the best punter in the country. He has done a phenomenal job. He has really been a weapon for us, an absolute weapon for us."

The three finalists for the award will be announced on November 19th, with the winner being named on December 6th.
