GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Junior Brett Cameron (Winnipeg) was one of 42 Football Championship Subdivision punters named to the College Football Performance Awards’ preseason watch list released this week. The organization is releasing watch lists throughout the summer for each position group for which it has an annual award.
Cameron yielded 39.1 yards per punt a season ago – an average that ranked second among Great West Conference punters. He landed 24 of his 64 punts inside the 20-yard line and boomed seven of those 50 yards or more, including a long of 65 at Cal Poly.
In his two seasons, Cameron is averaging 39.9 yards per punt, which ranks fourth on the top 10 career charts for UND punters.
Earlier this summer, Cameron’s teammate Greg Hardin was named to the publication’s wide receiver watch list.
The Fighting Sioux open the 2011 season at home against Drake on Thursday, Sept. 1. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the Alerus Center.
