Kyle Christy has shined on Florida's special teams, averaging 45.2 yards per punt and pinning opponents inside the 20 nine times.

Florida punter Kyle Christy is a tremendous weapon for the Gators, points out Adam Pincus at Jacksonville.com. The 6'2, 199-pound punter has been a big part of the special teams success that has helped the Gators to a 5-0 record.

Christy, a sophomore from Brownsburg, Ind. is averaging 45.2 yards per punt; best in the SEC and up from his 40.9 average in his freshman year. Nine of his 24 punts have pinned the Gators' opponent inside their own 20, and only seven of them have been returned. His best game of the season came against LSU, where field position was crucial in the low-scoring affair. He pinned LSU inside their own 10 three times and handed them his longest punt of the season, a towering 61 yard shot.

Christy was one of six Gators named to Phil Steele's 2012 Midseason All-American team, making the second team along with fellow special teamer kicker Caleb Sturgis.
