Andrew Friedman, 6'1", 180, K, from UMS-Wright in Mobile, AL could be the # 1 player in the state this year if kickers were given the accolades they deserve.
Andrew Friedman had an impressive junior campaign and could kick his
way to the rare scholarship offer to a place kicker.
Friedman is seeing the benefits of his hard work paying off as his senior
year approaches. "I have received around 25 letters from Alabama. I have
also received letters from LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss, Miami, West Virginia,
Arkansas, Florida and Virginia. I would
go to any major SEC school or just any major school in general."
With signing day being a year away and recruiting just getting started for
the class of 2005, Friedman has a couple of favorites. He said, "It's
really between Alabama and Georgia. Alabama probably has the edge right now,
because they have sent me the most letters and have been recruiting me from
During the fall of last year, Friedman attended several Alabama games and
one Auburn game. Friedman added, "I have always been an Alabama fan. My
Mom and my uncles all went to Alabama. My grandfather played at Georgia.
Kickers usually do not get scholarships, which I don't have a problem with, but
I do not want to go somewhere and waste my time."
Friedman was honored by several publications as a junior including the Birmingham
News Super All-State Honorable Mention, Mobile Register
All-Region 2nd Team Honors, Alabama Sports Writers All-State Honorable
Mention, and Montgomery Advertiser All-State Honorable Mention.
Friedman is also an excellent student that will have no trouble qualifying.
Top kickers are hard to find, yet it may be the hardest position other
than punter to earn a scholarship as a student athlete. Andrew Friedman should
be able to earn a coveted scholarship offer, because the sound of "IT"S GOOD!" could go a
long way to winning an SEC Championship or even a National Championship.
