Ressel Joins Tiger Teammates on Award Watch Lists
COLUMBIA - Missouri PK Grant Ressel joined three of his Tiger teammates on the pre-season award watch lists. The senior was named to the pre-season watch list for the Lou Groza Award, presented annually to the nation's top kicker.
Last season Ressel made 17-of-19 field goal attempts and led the team with 96 points scored. The year earlier he made 65-of-66 combined field goal and extra point attempts, setting an NCAA single-season record for kicking accuracy with a 98.5% success rate. His record setting performance earned him 1st-Team All-American honors and he was a semi-finalist for the Groza in each of the past two seasons. Oklahoma State's Dan Bailey won the award in 2010 while UCLA's Kai Forbath took it home in 2009.
