BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell senior Adam Lutz has been named to the 2014 College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) FCS Punter watch list.

A Second Team All-PFL member in 2012, Lutz was an honorable mention recipient in 2013. Lutz posted a 41.7 yard per punt average in 2013, ranking second in the PFL. The junior pinned 10 punts inside the 20 and seven for more than 50 yards. Lutz also forced 18 fair catches and booted a long of 68 yards.

Lutz is the third Campbell player to earn a spot on one of the CFPA's 2014 watch lists. CU teammate Isaac Scott was named to the CFPA's initial list for defensive linemen, while Austin Fleming has been added to the CFPA's tight end watch list.

The Waxhaw, N.C. native was an Academic All-PFL First Team recipient last season in addition to earning PFL Academic Honor Roll and third team all-PFL from College Sports Madness. Lutz also collected CFPA honorable mention weekly plaudits three times.
