OSU football: Matt Ammendola named semifinalist for Groza Award
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State kicker Matt Ammendola is one of 20 national semifinalists for the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, it was announced Thursday.
Ammendola is one of nine players in college football who has made more than 10 field goals while converting at a 90 percent rate or better, as he is 14-for-15 on field goal attempts this season. Going back to last season, he has made 17 of his past 18 field goal attempts.
It is the first time that Ammendola, a senior who began his career as a walk-on, has been named a semifinalist for the award. Oklahoma State kicker Dan Bailey won the award in 2010.
Three finalists will be announced Nov. 25 and the winner will be presented the award live on ESPN’s Home Depot College Football Awards Show Dec. 12.
