Tiger punter Matt Reagan was named a third-team All-America by the Associated Press this afternoon. The senior becomes the first Memphis football player since DeAngelo Williams in 2005 to earn All-America accolades. One of ten semifinalists for the Ray Guy Award as the nation's top punter, Reagan averaged 45.5 yards per punt in 2009, third in the country.
