Anthony Fera is making his mark as a punter and placekicker for Penn State.
Fera today was named as a candidate for the Ray Guy Award, presented to the nation's top punter.
Last week, Fera was named one of 20 semifinalists for the Lou Groza Award to the nation's top placekicker. Since he became Penn State's placekicker in the Lions' fourth game, Fera is 12 for 14 in field goals. He has nine touchbacks on kickoffs.
As a punter, Fera is averaging 41.1 yards per boot. However, Fera and the Lions' special teams have not been the best at having punts downed before they skip into the end zone.Fera is the first Nittany Lion since Chris Bahr in 1975 to be the starter for field goals, kickoffs and punts.
