Gators_Kyle_Christy_2013 [2]GAINESVILLE — 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.”
