Bulldogs go bowling

(Continued)

Comer mentioned a game against Harrison where five guys had to hold Jones back and “they weren’t doing a very good job of it.”

Christy enjoyed a fruitful season down south for the Gators. The 6-foot-2 punter was selected as a finalist for the Ray Guy Award (the nation’s best punter), won the College Football Performance Awards Punter Trophy, and was named a member of the Walter Camp All-America Second Team and a CBSSports.com All-American.

He averaged 45.8 yards per punt in 2012 to set a school record. Christy was fifth in the nation in punting average and top in the SEC.

The first-team all-conference punter was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week after a performance against South Carolina where he set a single-game school record with a 54.3 per punt average and he also added a season-best punt of 62 yards.

While at Brownsburg, Christy, a placekicker first, had reservations about taking up punting. He split time his junior year as a punter, used only when the Bulldogs needed, “a big one or a typical punt.”

He soon bought into what Comer was preaching about being a versatile special teams specialist in order to help garner scholarship offers. After attending some camps, Christy gained offers from Florida and LSU.

“He learned how to punt,” Comer said. “He worked with our coaches and he also got a personal coach. That’s a testament to the kid. He taught himself, among others, and learned how to punt. And now he’s one of the best punters in the country and who knows if the letters N-F-L will be in his future. But he’s got as good of a chance as anybody in the county to be an NFL punter.”

Christy led the state his senior year at Brownsburg with 42.4 yards per punt and Comer said he single-handily helped beat Westfield that season.
