Georgia’s Marshall Morgan Named To Lou Groza Award Watch List

Junior Marshall Morgan has been named to the Lou Groza Award Watch List as a candidate to be honored as the nation’s top place-kicker.

Morgan is one of 30 kickers included on the list and one of only three from the Southeastern Conference.

The Groza Award will announce its 20 semifinalists on November 6. The three finalists for the award will be announced on November 24. The national winner will be announced on December 11 during the Home Depot College Football Awards, broadcast live from Orlando, Fla.

Morgan, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., set an SEC record last season after going 22-for-24 (91.7 percent) on field goals and led the league in field goals made. The 2013 Groza Award semifinalist also drilled a career-long 56-yarder at Tennessee last year, which tied for the nation’s longest kick, and connected on a 55-yarder, making him the only kicker in the FBS in 2013 with a pair of field goals from at least 55 yards.

The Bulldogs start the season at home in Sanford Stadium versus Clemson on August 30. ESPN will televise the 5:30 p.m. matchup.
