Korsak Repeats as Ray Guy Award Punter of the Week 

Aussie wins national honor for fifth time in career 


PISCATAWAY, N.J. (Sept. 14, 2021) – Rutgers football punter Adam Korsak earned the Ray Guy Award Punter of the Week once again, the Augusta Sports Council announced Tuesday. The Aussie claims the national honor for the fifth time in his career and for the second-straight week.


In the win at Syracuse, Korsak posted career bests with a 52.2 average and 51.7 net. The Scarlet Knights registered a net advantage of 28.3 yards over the Orange in the punt game, ranking second nationally with a net punt of 50.7 through two weeks.


Korsak pinned 5-of-6 attempts inside the 20 at the Carrier Dome with four attempts of at least 50 yards. That included a 69-yarder, seventh-longest in program history, that settled at the 1. The performance also merited Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player of the Week.


The Aussie holds three of the top-five best punting average seasons in school history, resetting the Rutgers net punt season record the three previous years. He is averaging 43.6 yards per punt, second in the RU record book, on 208 career attempts. Korsak has booted 36 at least 50 yards, 10 of 60 or more yards, and pinned 83 inside the 20 with only five touchbacks (2.3 percent).


A four-time member of the Ray Guy Award watch list, Korsak collected national punter of the week following the win over Temple and three times in 2019. He is fourth nationally with a 50.9 average so far in 2021.


Rutgers (2-0) returns home to host Delaware on Saturday at SHI Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. on Big Ten Network and the RWJBarnabas Health Rutgers Sports Network.
