HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — A street on the University of Southern Mississippi campus has been renamed in honor of USM football legend and NFL Hall of Fame punter Ray Guy.
“Ray Guy Way” runs outside the Duff Athletic Center on the Hattiesburg campus. It was previously called Black and Gold Boulevard.
Guy installed one of the new street signs himself Tuesday.
Guy is retiring this week after five years as director of the “M” Club at USM.
He was a standout punter and defensive back at Southern Miss in the 1970s and he went on to a stellar career with the Oakland Raiders.
In 2014, he became the first punter to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
