Kentucky Wildcats punter Max Duffy has been named a First-Team Preseason All-American by the Associated Press.

Duffy, a native of Perth, Australia, was named a unanimous first-team specialist in 2019 after leading the nation in net punting with a 44.55-yard net average. He also led the nation in punting at 48.10 yards per punt. All of this helped Duffy win the 2019 Ray Guy Award as the nation’s top punter.

This year, Duffy has gotten preseason First-Team All-America honors by CBS Sports, Phil Steele, Sporting News, Athlon Sports and Walter Camp, as well as preseason First-Team All-SEC honors by Phil Steele and Athlon Sports.

Off the field, Duffy graduated in December of 2019 with a degree in psychology and is currently working on a master’s degree in kinesiology and health promotion. He has been named to the SEC’s Academic Honor Roll, the First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll, and has been listed on the Dean’s List twice. He also is active in community service, volunteering at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital with “Tuesdays with the Wildcats” and “In the Huddle with KCH.”
