Tom Hackett wins second Ray Guy Award, says he's a punter because he's fat & doesn't like to run

Hail the Utes!

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Hackett will sadly not win the Heisman Trophy he so richly deserves, but he will win "greatest speech by a college football"

Great times.

The Ray Guy is not the only honor for the Aussie. He was selected as a Walter Camp first-team All-American for the second straight year for Hackett on the nation's oldest All-America team. He is the only two-time first-team Walter Camp All-American in Utah history. Five former Utes made the Walter Camp first team in a single season: Jordan Gross (2002), Louie Sakoda (2008), Shaky Smithson (2010), Star Lotulelei (2012) and Nate Orchard (2014).

Thanks to Hackett, Utah leads the nation in net punting (43.67). His 47.8 punt average leads the Pac-12 and ranks third in the nation. The three-time first-team All-Pac-12 selection has placed 24 of his 55 punts inside the 20-yard line (43.6%), 11 inside the 10-yard line and two inside the five and leads the Pac-12 in punts of 50+ yards with 20.
