Oberkrom on Lou Groza Award Watch List

Standout placekicker has two of the four-longest field goals in TCU history

 

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- TCU's Jaden Oberkrom has been named to the watch list for the 2014 Lou Groza Award, presented to the nation's top placekicker.

 

Oberkrom was 14-of-18 on field goals last season, including a 13-of-14 mark on attempts inside 50 yards. His career-best 56-yard field goal, which gave the Horned Frogs the lead at Kansas State with 2:13 to play, tied for the second-longest made kick in TCU history. It was just 1-yard shy of a school record and gave him two of the four-longest field goals all-time at TCU.

 

A junior from Arlington, Texas, Oberkrom had at least one field goal in 10 of 12 games. His streak of 12 consecutive games with a field goal, which had been third longest in the nation, came to an end in the Texas game. He closed the season in a tie for fourth among active players nationally with 1.4 field goals per game in his career.

 

Oberkrom was perfect on his 37 extra-point attempts, giving him a streak of 79 consecutive makes which ties the TCU career record and is third nationally among active placekickers.

 

An All-Big 12 selection last season, Oberkrom was also first-team Academic All-Big 12 and Capital One Academic All-District.

 

Oberkrom was a Lou Groza Award semifinalist as a true freshman in 2012.

 

Former TCU placekicker Michael Reeder was the 1995 recipient of the Lou Groza Award.

Well deserved. Hopefully we don't ask him to kick a ton of 50+ yard FGs this year.

 

I think he has a real of 90% or better if we lower those 50+ attempts
