BLACKSBURG – Coming off a stellar freshman season, Virginia Tech football’s Peter Moore has been named to the Ray Guy Award’s (top punter) preseason watch list on Thursday.

Moore (6-1, 207) tied for the most punts of 50-plus yards in the ACC last season with 23 and tied for third in the conference with 22 punts inside the 20-yard line. The sophomore held a 45.1-yard average on 59 punts in 2021, which led the ACC and is tied with Jimmy Kibble (1997) for the second-highest single-season gross punting average in Tech annals.

Moore produced the fourth-longest punt in the conference during the 2021 season with a 68-yarder at Boston College on Nov. 5. The Davidsonville, Maryland native was also named to The Athletic’s Midseason Freshman All-America Team.

The Hokies enter their fourth practice of fall camp on Friday, with ACC Network being on campus. The network will be live from Blacksburg on Friday from 7-8 p.m. ET.
