Honors for Berry, Butler

Tennessee safety Eric Berry and Georgia punter Drew Butler both walked away with awards Thursday night at the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show.

Berry won the Jim Thorpe Award as the country's top defensive back. He was also a finalist last year. Florida's Joe Haden was one of the other finalists this year.

Butler won the Ray Guy Award as the country's top punter. He led the country with an average of 48.8 yards per kick.

Alabama's Mark Ingram was shut out in the voting for the Maxwell Award (best all-arond) and Doak Walker Award (best running back), but he remains the leader in the Heisman Trophy race, according to StiffArmTrophy.com.
