Austin MacGinnis named to Lou Groza Award Watch List

The good people behind the Lou Groza Award announced their preseason watch list today and Kentucky’s Austin MacGinnis is one of the 30 placekickers included.

MacGinnis made all 41 of his extra point attempts last season, a school record, and kicked the longest field goal in UK history, a 54-yarder at Tennessee. He also kicked the mindboggling field goal to even the score with Florida late in the fourth quarter.

I’ve probably watched that clip 100 times and still don’t believe it.

    Austin is so good that I started to take him for granted last year. I just assumed he would make it every time he kicked.
