WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) – Ole Miss junior kicker Luke Logan has been named to the preseason Lou Groza Award watch list, the Palm Beach County Sports Commission announced on Wednesday.
Logan is one of 30 collegiate players from across the nation to find a place on this year's watch list for the award, which honors the nation's best collegiate placekicker.
The Hattiesburg, Mississippi, native was 22-of-27 in field goal attempts last season, with a long of 40 yards. His 22 field goals tied the school record for the second-most in a single season.
Logan finished third in the SEC and 10th national in scoring in 2018 with 9.3 points per game. Last year, Logan was third in points scored in Ole Miss’ single-season record book with 111.
Former Rebel Jonathan Nichols earned the Lou Groza Award following his 2003 junior season, becoming the first Ole Miss player to receive the award.
Accomplishments are tabulated throughout the season and the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award will announce its 20 semifinalists on Thursday, Nov. 7. From this list, a panel of more than 100 FBS head coaches, SIDs, media members, former Groza finalists, and current NFL kickers selects the top three finalists for the award, announced on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
