The senior football punter has received eleven awards during the 2012 football season, and is the first Football Championship Subdivision kicker to receive the Mitchell award. It is the second straight year Murray has been honored by the Associated Press, earning Third Team honors as a punter last year.
Murray will receive his Mitchell award on Feb. 18 at the National Football Foundation Chicago Chapter Awards Ceremony.
Off the field, Murray has been active in community service projects with the football team, volunteering for a program through which players read to elementary school children in the Bronx. He is also active with the Part of the Solution (POTS) program, working at local food shelters.
