Minnesota State–Mankato Mavericks Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 29, 2014 - Alden Haffar kicks OT game winner over Pittsburg State
"It took overtime to decide Saturday's game at Blakeslee Stadium but a field goal by junior Alden Haffar and an interception by junior Tyler Henderson gave Minnesota State the 24-21 win against Pittsburg State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.... After both teams missed a field goal, the game went into overtime, marking the first time MSU has gone into overtime since its 38-35 overtime victory against Northwest Missouri State in the second round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. The Mavericks got the ball to start the overtime period. MSU managed to rush ahead to the PSU 12, before Haffar booted a 29-yard field goal to put the Mavericks up 24-21." - Mavericks

Old Dominion Monarchs Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 29, 2014 - Satchel Ziffer kicks game winner over FAU
"Sophomore Satchel Ziffer kicked a 27-yard field goal with two seconds left to give Old Dominion a 31-28 victory over Florida Atlantic in a Conference USA game at FAU Stadium on Saturday. The winning kick deflected in off the left goal post." - WSBT

November 8, 2014 - Satchel Ziffer kicks game winner over FIU
"After some pointed remarks from the coaching staff, the Monarchs' defense stiffened in the fourth quarter against Florida International and put kicker Satchel Ziffer in position to cleanly boot the game winner on the final play of a dramatic 38-35 affair Saturday at S.B. Ballard Stadium. 'How 'bout Satchel Ziffer,' ODU head coach Bobby Wilder said in the happy aftermath of the Monarchs' first win since Sept. 20. 'I say that jokingly, but that's probably the story of the season, having a lot of new faces stepping up and doing special things. I'm really happy for him.' Ziffer's 28-yard field goal at the gun was made possible by Fellonte Misher's diving interception of a tipped pass in the final seconds, when it appeared the game was headed to overtime.... A Heinicke slide centered the ball in the middle of the field, and after two FIU timeouts, Ziffer calmly split the uprights. 'Going from third-string kicker to first string and kicking the game-winning field goal, there's nothing like that,' Ziffer said. 'It seemed like it was meant to be.' Indeed, Ziffer, a redshirt sophomore from Lancaster, Pa., started the season as the No. 3 kicker. He moved up to No. 2 when Ricky Segers' knee injury shelved him for the season. Freshman Jarrett Cervi struggled a bit in warmups, Wilder said, and when he pushed a 34-yard field goal attempt wide right in the first quarter, the coach called on Ziffer. He kicked all five ODU extra points after touchdowns and kicked off. Beyond that, everybody in the building saw him attempt a field goal in a game for the first time.... Then came the Heinicke-to-Pascal connection, followed by Ziffer's game winner. The kicker was looking in the stands when Misher intercepted the ball. 'Then all of a sudden,' Ziffer said, 'I hear something, I'm like, 'Oh my God, this is going to come down to me.' The whole game, we were all joking, Satchel, it's your first time kicking, it's going to come down to you, and I was like, 'Oh no, it's not,' and I ended up doing it'." - Daily Press

September 20, 2014 - Ricky Segers kicks game winner over Rice
"After Rice tied the score with 1:05 left, Segers drilled a 25-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Monarchs to a 45-42 upset of the Owls, the defending Conference USA champions. Segers also made six extra points and booted four kickoffs out of the end zone. 'I've waited my whole life for a moment like this,' said Segers, who was mobbed by teammates at game's end. When you watch your teammates go out there for 59 minutes and do their job, it's really hard to go out there and not do yours. 'Today, I did my job'.... Segers showed enormous potential in spring practice, then missed all three field goals he attempted in the spring game. He had a strong preseason camp, but kicked poorly in ODU's first two games. In the opener against Hampton, Segers slipped on an extra point attempt, missing the kick and injuring his knee. He returned to play the next week against N.C. State but missed a short field goal.... ODU identified Segers as Jarod Brown's heir apparent two seasons ago. He was forced to play at Georgia State as a freshman when Brown went down with an injury, which burned a year of eligibility. Wilder left him off the travel squad last season to ensure ODU would redshirt him. 'There's a learning curve involved here,' Segers said. 'It's kick by kick. But I think I've found the right mindset. I have tunnel vision. I'm only moving forward. That kick tonight, that's as high pressure as it's going to get'." - The Virginian-Pilot

April 10, 2014 - kicker Ricky Segers
"Jarrod Brown was quite a weapon for ODU over the years, replacing him will not be easy.  Ricky Segers has impressed this Spring with a range of over 50 yards.  In a year that ODU goes from 5 FBS games to 11, he will be called upon to win games more than once this season." - ODU Bleed Blue

March 1, 2014 - spring specialists
"ODU loses four-year starter and its all-time points leader in Jarod Brown.  Brown set the FCS record for consecutive extra points made in a season in 2012 and kicked the longest field goal, a 54-yarder, in Heinz Field history. Sophomore Ricky Segers redshirted in 2013 while Kyle Lawrence kicked a pair of extra points last season in the win over Rhode Island. Senior Rick Lovato returns for his fourth season as the starting long snapper, Lovato has snapped flawlessly on every kick and punt the last three seasons. Sophomore Joe Pulisic returns for his sophomore season after punting six times last year with a long of 48.  Pulisic is also the holder on all extra points and field goals." - Monarchs

Thanksgiving Kicks

A look back at some NFL holiday kicking over the years:

Thanksgiving 2013: in Baltimore's 22-20 win over Pittsburgh, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker accounted for 16 of their points - with an extra point and field goals of 43, 34, 38, 45 and 48 yards.

Thanksgiving 2012: the Houston-Detroit game went in to overtime, where Texans kicker Shayne Graham missed a 51 yard attempt wide left and Lions kicker Jason Hanson hit the upright on a 47 yard attempt. The Texans eventually won 34-31 when Graham connected from 32 yards.

Thanksgiving 2011: rookie Dan Bailey hit a 28 yard field goal with three seconds remaining to lift Dallas to a 20-19 win over Miami. Shayne Graham made four field goals for the Dolphins.

Thanksgiving 2005: Jason Elam kicked a 24 yard FG in overtime to give Denver a 24-21 win over Dallas. Billy Cundiff missed a potential go-ahead 34 yard attempt in the fourth quarter.

Thanksgiving 1998: Jason Hanson hit a 42 yard FG in overtime giving Detroit a 19-16 victory over Pittsburgh. Hanson had four FGs in the game, while the Steelers' Norm Johnson had three.

Thanksgiving 1993: The holiday kick(s) that still get the most attention are Pete Stoyanovich's two game winning attempts at the end of the snowy Miami at Dallas matchup. His first attempt from 41 yards out was blocked, however Cowboys' defender Leon Lett tried to recover the ball, fumbled it, and the Dolphins recovered it. Stoyanovich's second attempt - this time from only 19 yards out - was good, giving Miami a 16-14 win.

Thanksgiving 1989: Eddie Murray's 35 yard FG in the third quarter provided the final margin of victory in Detroit's 13-10 win over Cleveland.

Thanksgiving 1984: Dallas beat New England 20-17 on Rafael Septien's 23 yard fourth quarter field goal.

Thanksgiving 1964: The planets were apparently in alignment that day as both games, one in the NFL and one in the AFL, each ended in a 27-24 score and both were decided by a fourth quarter field goal. Roger LeClerc's 17 yarder gave Chicago the win over Detroit, and Pete Gogolak's 33 yarder gave Buffalo the win over San Diego.

Ray Guy Award 2014 Finalists

The Augusta Sports Council has announced three finalists for the 2014 Ray Guy Award. All players are first-time finalists for the annual award. The finalists were selected by a national voting body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) coaches, sports information directors, national media, and former Ray Guy Award winners. The voters will cast a second round of ballots to decide the winner. The candidates were evaluated on their overall statistics and contribution to the team. Particular emphasis was placed on the punter’s net average, percentage of total punts inside the 20-yard line and percentage of punts not returned. The three Ray Guy Award finalists will be highlighted on ESPNU during The Home Depot College Football Awards Nomination Special airing Tuesday, November 25 at 6 p.m. (ET). The 30-minute show, hosted by Anish Shroff, will include player interviews and analysis from Charles Arbuckle surrounding finalists for the Ray Guy Award and other members of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA). This year’s Ray Guy Award winner will be revealed on ESPN during The Home Depot College Football Awards airing live from the Atlantic Dance Hall at Disney’s BoardWalk at the Walt Disney World Resort on Thursday, December 11 at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

JK Scott, Alabama
"Scott, a freshman from Denver, Colo., ranks second nationally in punting average (46.8 yards per punt) and second in net punting (43.28 ypp). He leads the nation in percentage of punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line at 53.5 percent (23 of 43), with 16 punts of 50 yards or more and four over 60 yards with a long of 66. " - Crimson Tide
Austin Rehkow, Idaho
"Rehkow leads the nation in punting average (for the second successive season) with an average of 47.8 yards per kick. He has punted 42 times for 2,007 yards.... 'Austin has done an excellent job of continuing to improve his skills as a punter,' coach Paul Petrino said. 'He does a great job of placing his punts to help us control field position. He is consistent and dependable. He is very worthy and deserving of this award.' Rehkow had a career-long punt of 73 yards at Georgia Southern. It ties for sixth all-time at Idaho and for seventh in the FBS this year. He also has another top 30 punt with a kick of 69 yards (vs. Arkansas State) that ties for 23rd. Of his 42 punts this season, 18 were 50 yards or longer and 15 were downed inside the 20.... He will become Idaho’s career punting average leader this season after setting a single-season record as a freshman (47.8). He led the nation with that average, which is an NCAA freshman punting average record as well as the record for punters who kicked 75 or more times in a season." - Vandals
Tom Hackett, Utah
"Hackett is the second Ray Guy Award finalist from Utah, joining Louie Sakoda (2008). In addition to leading the nation in punts inside the 10 (19) and punts inside the 20 (34), Hackett ranks third in the nation and leads the Pac-12 in punt average (46.5). He has placed 46.6% of his punts inside the 20-yard line (34-of-73). Hackett broke his own school record for punt yards in a season (3,396), which also ranks third in the nation. He leads the Pac-12 in punts of 50+ yards (23), which is the second-best single-season mark in school history. Hackett was named the Ray Guy Award Player of the Week three times this year: vs. Fresno State, UCLA and Stanford. For his career, Hackett has placed 43.7% of his punts inside the 20 (76-of 174), including 37 inside the 10-yard line and 16 inside the 5-yard line. His 43 career punts of 50+ yards ranks fourth all-time at Utah. Hackett has just 15 touchbacks in 174 career punts. Hackett, a first-team all-Pac-12 punter as a sophomore last season, grew up playing Australian rules football and had never played a down of American football before walking on to the Utah team in 2013. He shared the starting job as a freshman and has started every game the past two seasons. Hackett also serves as the holder for place kicks." - Utes

Lou Groza Award 2014 Finalists

The national panel of college football experts assembled by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission has selected the three finalists for the 23rd Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award. The three finalists will be honored at the 23rd Annual Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Awards Banquet on Tuesday, December 9 at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. The three Lou Groza Award finalists will be highlighted on ESPNU during The Home Depot College Football Awards Nomination Special airing Tuesday, Nov. 25 at 6:00pm This year’s Lou Groza Award winner will be revealed on ESPN during The Home Depot College Football Awards Show airing live from the Atlantic Dance Hall at Disney’s Boardwalk at the Walt Disney World Resort on Thursday, Dec. 11 at 7:00 p.m. (ET).

Roberto Aguayo, Florida State
"Aguayo is looking to become the second person ever to win back-to-back Groza Awards, joining fellow Nole Sebastian Janikowski (1998, 1999). 'It’s a dream come true to be named a finalist again,' Aguayo said. 'It meant a lot to win the award as a freshman last year. It motivated me to work even harder this year. I know there a lot of great kickers out there so it’s an honor to be in the running for this award. It’s exciting to get to go back to West Palm Beach. The Palm Beach County Sports Commission puts on a great event'.... Aguayo has made 21 of 23 field goals this season, including all of his 50+ attempts and has remained perfect on 46 PATs. The Mascotte, Fla., native drilled a 26-yard game-winning field goal with three seconds left on Saturday to lift FSU over Boston College, 20-17. Aguayo nailed a career-best-matching 53-yarder in a tight game at Miami and connected on 5-of-5 field goals en route to an FSU record 19 points versus Wake Forest earlier this season. Aguayo is tied for third in the nation in kicker scoring this season (9.9 points per game) and he leads the undefeated Seminoles (11-0) with 109 total points. Last season, Aguayo captured the Groza Award after setting the national record for points by a kicker (57) while making 21-of-22 field goals and all 94 extra points for the National Champions. For his career, he has made 42-of-45 field goals (93.3 percent) and all 140 of his PATs." - Seminoles
Brad Craddock, Maryland
"Craddock, Maryland’s first-ever Groza finalist, is one of three student-athletes vying for the honor.... This season, Craddock has converted all 17 of his field goals attempts and has converted 23 straight dating back to last season, which is the longest active streak in FBS. Craddock is the only FBS kicker that is perfect this season with 10 of his successful tries coming from 40-plus yards. The native of Adelaide, Australia native set a Maryland record this season hitting a 57-yard field goal against Ohio State on Oct. 4. The kick is the second-longest FBS field goal this season. One month later, Craddock kicked his first career game-winning field against Penn State on Nov. 1 hitting a 43-yard attempt with under a minute remaining. With 23 straight successful field goal attempts, Craddock holds the second-longest streak in Big Ten history. He is one field goal shy of tying the all-time conference mark held by Ohio State’s Mike Nugent, who hit 24 straight from 2001-02." - Terrapins
Josh Lambert, West Virginia
"We all know what contributions Josh has made to our team this year,' WVU Head Coach Dana Holgorsen said. 'His big kicks at Maryland and Texas Tech showed what he can do in pressure situations. With his four field goals of more than 50 yards and his overall numbers, being named a finalist for the Lou Groza Award certainly is fitting for the kind of year he is having.' Lambert, a sophomore from Garland, Texas, is the national leader in field goals made, having connected on 24 already this season. That’s more than any kicker finished the entire regular season with last year. He leads all kickers with 4 field goals from 50 yards or more, but perhaps more impressive are his 13 from 40 or longer, one short of the all-time FBS record. His season long of 55 yards came as time expired to give West Virginia the win over Texas Tech, his second game-winning field goal of the season. He has added 37 PATs for a total of 109 points, tied for second-most among FBS kickers. 'I am extremely honored to be named a finalist for such a prestigious award,' Lambert said. 'There have been a great tradition of Groza finalists who have had outstanding college careers and has gone on to have great NFL careers. I want to thank my coaches, Coach Holgorsen and Coach DeForest, and my teammates, especially Michael Molinari and John DePalma, because none of this would be possible without them'." - Mountaineers

Lamar Cardinals Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 22, 2014 - Juan Carranco kicks game winner over McNeese State
"Juan Carranco drilled a 23-yard field goal with the clock winding down to hold off No. 17 McNeese State, who rallied to tie the game in the fourth quarter, and gave the Lamar football team a 27-24 win Saturday afternoon at Cowboy Stadium in Southland Conference action.... Coach Ray Woodard called a timeout with four seconds remaining before McNeese called two timeouts to freeze the kicker, but Carranco split the uprights and turned around and celebrated as the clock hit zero. 'Juan missed two earlier, and I'm glad he made up for it at the end," said Woodard. I am very happy and very proud for him'." - Cardinals

August 28, 2014 - new long snapper
“For four years, I haven’t had to worry about our snapper or our punter,' said head coach Ray Woodard. 'Chris (Maikranz) never made a bad snap in four years and Kollin (Kahler) was arguably the best punter in school history. Because of how good Maikranz was, we felt it was necessary to go out and recruit two long snappers. It is a position you don’t think about until things go wrong. I’ve been around teams where the long snapper was a problem and that is not a situation I want to be around again which is why we brought in two very talented guys,' added Woodard. Corinth  native Brent Nicholson will be the top candidate to replace Maikranz. The 6-2, 240-pound product comes to Beaumont with an edge experience from the junior college ranks. Nicholson will be backed up by freshman Zack Roberts (6-2, 235) from Magnolia." - Port Arthur News

July 7, 2014 - kicker Alex Ball named to watch list
"Sophomore kicker Alex Ball has been named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) Preseason Watch List announced CFPA executive director Brad Smith. Ball took over the starting role at kicker midway through the 2013 season and never looked back. Taking over for one of the school's all-time leading scorers, Ball became an immediate weapon for Lamar. A perfect 20-of-20 on point after tries, Ball proved he had one of the stronger legs in the Southland despite his rookie status. The California native, drilled a 41-yard field goal as time was running out to secure the come-from-behind victory over rival Stephen F. Austin. The field goal not only iced LU's first win over the Lumberjacks since returning the sport to varsity status, but also was the exclamation point on a career night for Ball. He finished the game with a career-high 16 points, and was named Southland Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts. Ball finished the season a perfect 7-of-7 on field-goal attempts." - Cardinals

February 14, 2014 - departing specialists
Lamar also has some big shoes to fill on special teams. The Cardinals will be looking to replace All-American deep snapper Chris Maikranz, and first-team All-SLC punter Kollin Kahler. Both players held the starting positions since the program was brought back. Maikranz never recorded a bad snap during his four years, while Kahler graduates as the school's career leader in punt average." - Cardinals

February 5, 2014 - two long snappers sign
Zach Roberts, Magnolia, Texas / Magnolia High School: Named 2013 Magnolia Special Teams Most Valuable Player ... A two-time special teams player of the week selection during his senior season. 
Brent Nicholson, Corinth, Texas / Denton Guyer High, Navarro Junior College: Earned all-conference honors as a deep snapper ... Helped guide Navarro to a 19-5 (.792) overall record during his two seasons on campus ... Also led Navarro to the 2012 conference title and a Hot Bowl victory, and a 2013 Brazos Valley Bowl victory ... High School: Never recorded a bad snap during his prep career. - Cardinals

High School Long Kicks - Mississippi

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Mississippi.
  • 59 Lemeko Williams, Clarksdale in 24-21 win over Tupelo, 1994, with 33 seconds remaining
"Williams was a conventional (straight-on kicker) who blasted kickoffs through the end zone on a regular basis. His record-setting (and game-winning kick) came with about a 30-mph gust at his back. Williams had missed one — I think it might even have been a yard or two longer — on Clarksdale's previous possession when the football struck a guidewire that crossed above the playing field and veered off course. That one might have been good, too." - Todd Kelly, MHSAA
  • 58 & 53 Andrew Ritter, Jackson Academy in 40-7 win over Heritage, 9/17/2008
"Senior kicker Andrew Ritter won a pair of player of the week awards this week after kicking two field goals of more than 50 yards and five extra points in a 41-7 victory over Heritage Friday, Sept. 19, in Columbus. Ritter won The Clarion-Ledger Metro Player of the Week award and also the WAPT-Channel 16 Bank Plus Player of the Week award. Ritter kicked field goals of 58 and 53 yards. The 58-yarder was a Mississippi Private School Association record and was one yard short of the Mississippi high school record for public and private schools. In addition to his long field goals this season, Ritter has kicked all 22 of his kickoff for touchbacks." - SEC Fanatics
  • 53 Matt Hinkle, Jackson Academy, 2002
  • 53 Andrew Ritter, Jackson Academy in 38-0 win over Oak Hill, 9/10/2008
  • 52 Andrew Ritter, Jackson Academy in 10-9 loss to Pillow Academy, 9/26/2008
  • 51 & 50 John Michael Marlin, Tupelo in win over Southaven, 1997

Occidental Tigers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 18, 2014 - kicker Alex Graves
For years, Occidental football kicker Alex Graves (senior) defended the goal. Now, his only job is to aim between the goalposts. 'I never imagined myself playing football,' Graves said. 'I’ve always been a soccer player. It’s definitely a weird thing to hear.' Until his junior year, Graves played goalkeeper for the Tigers’ soccer team. After totaling just over 33 minutes of time on the field in his three appearances, Graves decided to leave the game. 'I wanted to focus more on school,” Graves said. “I wasn’t enjoying soccer as much as I used to in high school. So I figured with that combination I would stop playing.' Two years later, Graves is now the starting kicker for the Tigers’ football team. In nine games, he has racked up 26 of 27 extra points, providing stability for the Tigers’ kicking game.... In the fall, Graves worked his way to the starting position by exhibiting improved accuracy and consistency in practice. When SCIAC play started, Semones gave him the nod. Graves knocked in a 40-yard field goal against Cal Lutheran Nov. 8, his longest of the season." - The Occidental Weekly

Pikeville Bears Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 17, 2014 - kicker/punter Damir Karapandzic earns weekly MSC honors
"Kicker/punter Damir Karapandzic is the Mid-South Conference Football Special Teams Player of the Week, league officials announced on Monday. The weekly honor is the first for Karapandzic and the third the Bears have picked up this season. The Danville, Ky., native is the first kicker or punter from UPIKE to earn a weekly award since Kyle Chilton on Oct. 12, 2009. Karapandzic scored seven points and averaged 41 yards per punt in the Bears' 39-20 win over Union on Saturday. He tallied 82 yards on his two punts, including booting a long of 44 yards. Karapandzic connected on his only field goal -- a 24-yarder -- and was 4-for-5 on extra points as UPIKE closed out its season on a three-game winning streak. Karapandzic finishes the season with 57 points -- fourth best among kickers in the MSC. His seven field goals are second in the conference and his 38.3 yards per punt average ranks third in the MSC.

November 16, 2014 - kicker Ryan Quinn earns weekly MASCAC honors
"Sophomore placekicker Ryan Quinn was named as the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference Football Special Teams Player of the Week Saturday night for his performance in the Buccaneers’ 31-21 victory over rival Bridgewater State in the 36th Annual Cranberry Bowl Presented By Ocean Spray. A native of North Andover, Mass. and a graduate of North Andover High School, Quinn converted a 23-yard field goal on the game’s opening drive while also knocking in all four of his extra point attempts for the contest.  He also limited the Bears to just 20 kickoff return yards on six attempts in holding Bridgewater State to an average starting field position of its own 24-yard line. The conference accolade is Quinn’s second of his career, as he also earned the honor on October 12, 2013 after converting all six of his point-after attempts in a wild 54-53 victory at Western Connecticut." - Buccaneers

As the rain tapered off after the break, Martinique applied a heavier foot on the accelerator and went ahead in the 57th minute. An unmarked Bedi Buval found the ball at his feet in the right side of the box, pounding it past a helpless Muhammad from nine-yards out....

Illinois moved the ball when they got it back, from its own 25 to the Macalester 29, but Joel Miller forced a fumbed, which Nate Yordy recoved at the Scots' 22 and gave the visitors a chance to go ahead with 6:23 to play.

RPI Engineers Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 15, 2014 - Andrew Franks kicks winning points over Union
"Nick Borkowski returned an interception for 75 yards for a touchdown, while Andrew Franks put Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) on top for good with a 25-yard field goal with seven minutes remaining to lead the Engineers to a 31-28 win over Union in the 65th Dutchman Shoes Trophy Game." - Engineers

October 25, 2014 - kicker Andrew Franks lengthens his school record
"When your placekicker is your only scoring threat, it's going to be a long day. RPI was reminded of that Saturday after being steamrolled by Hobart 35-3 in a Liberty League football game at East Campus Stadium. Senior Andrew Franks continued his record-shattering season with a 54-yard field goal on the final play of the first half, but it was not nearly enough for the Engineers to match up against the undefeated Statesmen, ranked No. 8 in the nation among Division III colleges. 'I didn't even know how long it really was,' Franks said after surpassing his own school record of 51 yards set earlier this year. 'For me, as soon as you pass 40 (yards), it's just another long kick. You can't think about any of the negatives. You're just there to kick the ball as well as you can.' The kick was Franks' 34th field goal for RPI. Nobody else has kicked more for the Engineers, and nobody else has come close to kicking them as far." - Times Union

October 21, 2014 - kicker/punter Andrew Franks earns weekly Liberty honors again
"For the fifth time this season, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) student-athlete Andrew Franks has been chosen as the Liberty League Special Teams Performer of the Week in football. The kicker/punter from Carmel, Calif., was also honored on September 8, September 22, September 29 and October 6. This past Saturday, Franks made 2 of 2 field goals and set the school record for career field goals with 33 in a 34-20 loss at the University of Rochester. He also had three touchbacks on five kickoffs and punted for an average of 35.0 yards on six attempts. He made field goals of 25, setting the school record, and 29 yards in the second and fourth quarters, respectively. When kicking off, he averaged 63.0 yards per attempt with three touchbacks. As a punter Franks had a long of 42 yards with two kicks that landed inside the 20-yard line and no touchbacks. Through seven games this year, the Carmel High School graduate has made 12 of 16 field goal attempts, including from a school record 51 yards. He has multiple field goals in four games and is currently in second in school history for field goals in a season. Matt Verenini set the mark of 18 in 2003. Franks is 23 of 24 on point-after-touchdowns. While kicking off he has 29 touchbacks on 41 attempts, including six in one game and five in two other contests. As a punter, he is averaging 39.40 yards per kick, totaling 1,261 yards on 32 attempts. Franks has eight that have landed inside the 20 yard line with a long of 60 yards." - Engineers

August 25, 2014 - kicker/punter Andrew Franks
A native of Carmel, Calif., Franks hopes to make an impression not only on the Liberty League, but in the eyes of pro scouts. 'As a kicker, we're all stats-based,' Franks said during RPI media day Monday, 'so if I can get every kick in, every kickoff a touchback, that's a perfect season for me.' Franks, a Division III first-team All-American last year, isn't living in a dream world. He needs to look no further than Steven Hauschka, who played for three seasons at Division III Middlebury, for inspiration.'Seeing what he did with the Seahawks last season shows that it doesn't really matter what division you're from, if you have the skills and the capability,' Franks said.... The weather here isn't quite California-like, but in Franks' mind that has been beneficial. Franks, who also punts for the Engineers, has stayed in the area the past couple of summers to work out. 'I'll kick out here in the snow, rain, sleet,' said Franks, who used to drive five hours when he was in California to go snowboarding. 'You can't get that kind of experience anywhere else'." - Times Union

Becker Hawks Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 15, 2014 - Jacob Holmes kicks game winner in OT over Anna Maria
"Becker College defeated Anna Maria 17-14 in overtime in Eastern Collegiate Football Conference action Saturday afternoon at Alumni Field. The win ends the Hawks season with a record of 1-9 (1-6 ECFC), while the AMCATS finished with a record of 0-10 (0-7 ECFC).... Becker had the first possession in overtime. Despite gaining just four yards, the Hawks opted to call on sophomore Jacob Holmes (Worcester, Mass.) for a 39 yard field goal attempt. The kick sailed through goal posts to give the Hawks a 17-14 lead." - Hawks

Abilene Christian Wildcats Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 15, 2014 - Nik Grau kicks game winner over Stephen F. Austin
"Stephen F. Austin – playing with a chance to stay among the league leaders and still vying for an NCAA Division I FCS playoff spot — gave up 256 rushing yards to ACU redshirt freshman running back De’Andre Brown and saw Jordan Wiggs miss a potential game-winning 27-yard field goal with 1:19 to play as the Wildcats knocked off the Lumberjacks, 37-35.... SFA punter Nick Bruno only got off a 16-yard punt to the Lumberjacks’ 41-yard line to give ACU great field possession with 9:14 to play and only trailing by one point. The big play in the drive was a pass interference call against SFA cornerback Maurice Poulard on ACU receiver Cedric Gilbert. Nik Grau then capped the drive with his third field goal of the game, a 31-yarder that gave ACU a 37-35 lead with 5:48 left in the game." - Big Country

August 21, 2014 - summer specialists
"Nik Grau turned in one of the top freshman seasons by a placekicker in ACU football history. He made 10 of 11 field goals for a 90.9 conversion percentage, which – if ACU's statistics had counted last year in the FCS statistical rankings – would have been the best mark in NCAA Division I FCS football and tied for 13th in NCAA Division I football.... He carries a streak of eight straight made field goals into the 2014 season. Grau's backup will be Ben Hynds, who was 3 for 3 on PATs in 2013. Austin Kilcullen set a new ACU single-season record for punting average with a mark of 44.2 yards per punt in 2013, an average that would have led the Southland Conference by almost two yards per punt and would have ranked 14th in the FCS statistical rankings. Kilcullen had 11 punts of at least 50 yards with a long of 64 yards against Illinois State. His backup entering fall camp is Weston Gray.... The Wildcats added junior college transfer Hayden Brodowsky to be the deep snapper and coach Ken Collums believes he could be one of the best in the league. Parker McKenzie is slated to be the holder for field goals and PATs." - Wildcats

Northwestern Wildcats Kicker, Punter & Snapper News

November 15, 2014 - Jack Mitchell kicks game winner over Notre Dame
"This moment, Mitchell realized, was his chance to silence the critics – not only those who never expected Northwestern could win for a second straight time in South Bend, but those who Fitzgerald said after Saturday night's dramatic 43-40 overtime win had jumped ship, no longer willing to hang on for what had already been a bumpy ride. With so much riding on one kick, Mitchell – whose field goal with 16 seconds remaining in regulation had forced overtime – zoned out the rest of the world, ignoring the noise that has surrounded Northwestern's program all season long. 'Just be calm,' Mitchell said up the tunnel from the end zone where his kick had sailed through the uprights while Notre Dame fans chanted, 'Block that kick.' That's all you can do'. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly attempted to ice Mitchell, as if that was necessary with the temperature hovering around 27 degrees at the time Mitchell lined up for the game-winning kick. Before Kelly had motioned for the stoppage in play Mitchell had settled into his routine and was just calculating his steps when Kelly called for the timeout. As he had been taught in such situations, Mitchell followed through, pushing the practice kick wide left. As his teammates prepared for Mitchell's next and final attempt, the kicker – who admitted afterward that he knew little of the 1995 game that had put Northwestern on the football map – stepped away, again zoning out from everything going on around him. On the sidelines, Pat Fitzgerald knew to stay quiet – at least when it came to his kicker. 'When he got iced, he didn't come over and have a conversation and coffee and talk about world peace,' Fitzgerald said. On the field, Mitchell told himself to stay loose as his linemen discussed blocking schemes  As he waited to kick Northwestern to victory, Mitchell kept moving about, trying to keep as warm as possible. As the snap came back and the ball went down, Mitchell stepped into his kick, which started left and then bent right, sending the Northwestern sideline into pandemonium. As soon as he connected, sending the ball toward Touchdown Jesus, Mitchell knew for a fact it was good. He started running in the opposite direction. Senior quarterback Trevor Siemian, who had positioned himself on the far 40-yard line to give himself a clear view of the kick, watched the ball go into the air and with the kick about midway to its destination, Siemian ran onto the field, joining the purple and white celebration that spilled out onto the field as Notre Dame Stadium sat in stunned silence." - Chicago Football

November 12, 2014 - kicker Mason Weissenhofer commits
"Northwestern's special teams future got a little bit stronger on Wednesday night. The Wildcats received a verbal pledge from Montini (Ill.) Catholic kicker Mason Weissenhofer, who will join the team as a preferred walk-on. Weissenhofer is rated a five-star kicker and the 19th-best prospect in the nation by Chris Sailer, the kicking guru. His strong and consistent leg has been a key piece of Montini's success.... The Wildcats currently have walk-on Jack Mitchell serving as a kicker. However, he came to Northwestern as a baseball player and happened to join the football team. Weissenhofer has been recruited to Northwestern with the hopes that he can win over the starting job." - 247 Sports

September 22, 2014 - punter Chris Gradone gets scholarship and then weekly honors
"On Sept. 12, during NU’s bye week, junior punter Chris Gradone received some big news: He would be awarded an athletic scholarship for the 2014-15 year. 'I was ecstatic,' Gradone said. 'It was right before our bye, and I was planning on going home to surprise my mom. I came home, she was really surprised and then I told my parents I got the scholarship. It was a great moment.' Eight days later, Gradone — who earned the starting job late last season — had the best game of his college career, pinning the Leathernecks deep in Cats territory. For the performance, the junior was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week. Gradone said the scholarship helped his confidence entering the game against Western Illinois. 'I don’t know whether it directly carried over,' he said. 'But it was definitely a boost'." - Daily Northwestern

August 25, 2014 - summer specialists
"First depth chart of the 2014 season features a few mild surprises: The place-kicker will be walk-on Jack Mitchell, rather than Hunter Niswander, who was slowed in fall camp by an ankle injury. Mitchell started 21 games last season as an outfielder for NU’s baseball team, and NU coach Pat Fitzgerald said he made close to 80 percent during Camp Kenosha. The starting punter also is a walk-on, Chris Gradone. He averaged 37.8 per boot in four games late last season." - Chicago Tribune

April 23, 2014 - spring specialists
"There are going to be a lot of new faces on Northwestern’s special teams depth chart this year, especially in the kicking game. Hunter Niswander seems like the most likely choice to replace Jeff Budzien, while Chris Gradone is the obvious choice to step in for Brandon Williams, since Gradone replaced Williams in a couple games at the end of last year." - Inside Northwestern

March 30, 2014 - replacing Budzien
"In the past three years, only once has someone without the name “Budzien” on the back of his jersey kicked a field goal for the Wildcats. But NU’s new all-time leading scorer is graduating and taking with him the near-automatic kicking game that the Cats have become accustomed to for the past few years. None of the current kickers on the roster — true freshman Hunter Niswander, redshirt freshmen Matt Micucci and Jack Mitchell or sophomore Arthur Omilian — have any sort of college kicking experience." - Football Nation

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Wyoming.
  • 57 & 53 Cody Wilkinson, Natrona County in 48-6 win over Evanston, 9/26/2014 
"For good measure, junior kicker Cody Wilkinson converted a 53-yard field goal attempt in the fourth quarter to ensure that the Mustangs had the final say. Then he kicked a 57-yard field goal with 6:42 left to put Natrona County up 48-6 and return the energy to a stadium that had little in terms of drama to entertain it for much of the game. " - Casper Star-Tribune
  • 55 Cody Wilkinson, Natrona County in 47-7 win at Gillette, 9/19/2014

Natrona would score an additional 21 unanswered points before closing out a 47-7 victory at Gillette to remain undefeated on the season at 4-0. 'Cody’s done a lot of work to get ready,' Natrona coach Steve Harshman said. 'He’s done all the kicking camps. He’s put a lot of work in and a lot of time. He’s a dedicated kid'." - Casper Star-Tribune
