Nebraska K Drew Brown Named To Lou Groza Watch List

Nebraska kicker Drew Brown named to Lou Groza Watch List.

Nebraska junior kicker Drew Brown was one of 30 players named to the watch list for the Lou Groza National Collegiate Place-Kicker Award. 

After only making 67 percent of his kicks during his freshman season, Brown pushed it to 77 percent in 2015, nailing 21-of-27 field goals with his long coming from 50 yards. His efforts earned him second-team All-Big Ten honors by both the Associated Press and Big Ten Media.

Brown’s 21 field goals in 2015 was the second highest single-season total for Nebraska. The junior was 14 of 17 from field goals 30 to 49 yards. 

Brown also handled kickoffs, logging 32 touchbacks during the season on 79 kickoffs.

A total of three Big Ten kickers made the list.
