snapshot GETTING A LEG UP Virginia fourth-year punter Nicholas Conte was honored for his accomplishments both on the field and in the classroom in early November. The Roa- noke, Va., native was one of 10 student-athletes named a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award, which is given annually to the National Punter of the Year. He was also tabbed as a 2016 CoSIDA District Academic All-American and a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation's Campbell Trophy, which is known as the Academic Heisman. Through games of Nov. 12, Conte led the ACC and ranked 11th nationally in punting average (44.8 yards per attempt), while his 29 punts inside the 20 led the country. Of those 29, 13 were downed inside the 10-yard line, six inside the 5-yard line and five at the 1-yard line. His career 44.7 punting average is a program best. In the classroom, Conte graduated with a degree in human biology last May. He currently is pursuing a master's in sports administration. PHOTO BY MATT RILEY/COURTESY UVA
