Gators_Kyle_Christy_2013GAINESVILLE -- In 2012, Kyle Christy was an All-American and Ray Guy Award finalist. Now he?s Florida?s second-string punter. After weeks of poor production, the junior has been officially benched in favor of freshman Johnny Townsend.

?We need to make a change there,? said coach Will Muschamp, who attributed Christy?s issues to mental fatigue.

?It?s very frustrating, as much for him as it is for anyone,? Muschamp said. ?It?s not from a lack of work or a lack of trying to get things right. There?s no question about that. It?s just a matter of him working through this and us continuing to try and search for answers.?
