Camarda ended up handling both duties for the Bulldogs his final two seasons in Athens. And his expertise in both disciplines is what garnered him All-American and All-SEC honors at Georgia. It’s a wonder he never nailed down the Ray Guy Award as the nation’s best punter. Then again, the Bulldogs didn’t punt enough for Camarda to achieve NCAA minimums (3.6 per game).
As it was, Camarda finished as UGA’s career leader in punting average, with a mark of 45.78, surpassing 2009 Ray Guy Award winner Drew Butler (45.4). He punted 47 times in 2021 for an average of 46.7 yards, with a long of 68 yards vs. Alabama. He also kicked off 102 times, with 71 touchbacks and 16 others resulting in a fair catch. Accordingly, the Bulldogs led the SEC and ranked third nationally in kickoff return defense (13.0 avg.).
