CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami Hurricanes punter Pat O'Donnell has been named the recipient of the College Football Performance Awards 2013 Punter Trophy. O'Donnell will receive his award during the first half of the men's basketball game against Duke on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

College Football Performance Awards Executive Director Brad Smith will be on hand to present the trophy to O'Donnell, who earned the award with a school single-season record average of 47.1 yards-per-punt. O'Donnell, an All-ACC selection, punted 53 times, including 23 punts over 50 yards and 19 placed inside the 20-yard line.

O'Donnell is the second University of Miami player to earn CFPA honors, following 2010 Elite Wide Receiver Trophy winner Leonard Hankerson.

The purpose of the College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferments in college football. Recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams. Twenty-one CFPA recipients have been first-round NFL Draft selections.

A CFPA winner has been the first specialist selected in the NFL Draft in four of the last five seasons.

The 2013 CFPA Punter Trophy is a 22-inch optic crystal tower with 8-inch crystal football on top.
