Georgia Tech Football: Pressley Harvin III Wins Ray Guy Award

Georgia Tech senior punter Pressley Harvin III on Thursday night was named the 2020 Ray Guy Award winner.

On Thursday night during the Home Depot Award Show, Pressley Harvin III was named the 2020 Ray Guy Award winner. The award is annually given out to the nation’s top punter and is named after College Football Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame punter Ray Guy.

Harvin had a career year with the Jackets, punting the ball 45 times and averaging 48 yards per punt. He also had a career-long this season of 70-yards, which he recorded against UCF early in the season.

Harvin is the second Yellow Jacket to ever win the award, following in the footsteps of Durant Brooks, who won the award in 2007. For the South Carolina native, it is a tremendous way to finish off his Georgia Tech career as he already has declared for the NFL Draft and might be the Yellow Jackets’ top draft prospect this year.

Throughout his career on The Flats, the four-year stater has consistently been one of the top punters not just in the ACC but in the entire country. The culmination of his career being a Ray Guy Award seems all but much deserved and poetic. Harvin was also named first-team All-ACC and a first-team All-American this season.

The Yellow Jackets will surely miss having the talented Harvin at their disposal going forward as he was a legitimate weapon for the Jackets in flipping field position consistently on opponents. Yellow Jacked Up wishes Pressley all the best going forward and congratulates him on his tremendous achievement.
