Succop on Ray Guy Award list

Reported in the Greenville News this afternoon....University of South Carolina junior Ryan Succop is one of 41 players named to the watch list for the 2007 Ray Guy Award, which goes to the nation's top college punter.

The 6-foot-2, 214-pound Hickory, N.C., native is averaging 41.9 yards per punt, with a long of 57 yards. Three of his 12 punts have been downed inside the 20-yard line.

The list will be cut to 10 semifinals in early November and three finalists will be named later that month. The winner will be announced Dec. 6 on ESPN. Let's all hope Succop wins this honor b/c he will go down as the best kicker / punter in school history.
Sidenote --- With Pepper out look for Senior outside linebacker Casper Brinkley, who played defensive end last year and occasionally this year, to be the starter at end heading into Saturday's game at No. 2 LSU. And freshman Def End Cliff Matthews to replace Brinkley at outside linebacker.
