Wieclaw on the Lou Groza Watch List

Jake Wieclaw is on the Lou Groza Watch List as one of the nation's top 25 kickers.

Jake Wieclaw was a record-setting kicker from the state of Illinois when he came to the University of Miami. After spending his first three seasons being unable to win a job away from Matt Bosher (now kicking for the Atlanta Falcons), Wieclaw was very good as a junior in 2011.

He finished the season 11-of-14 on field goals, with a long of 49 (against Boston College in the season finale). He was 3-for-3 from 20-29 yards; 5-for-5 from 30-39 yards; and 3-for-6 from 40+.

Wieclaw, who also connected on all 39 extra point attempts for the Hurricanes last season, is one of the top returning kickers in the ACC. He's one of three kickers from the conference on the list.

The Lou Groza Award is given to the top kicker in college football every year.
