Kloss the All-American

On Friday, Lou Groza finalist and South Florida kicker, Marvin Kloss, was named a second team All-American by Athlon Sports.

TAMPA, FL.-- After failing to appear on the American Athletic All-Conference teams earlier this week, South Florida kicker Marvin Kloss was named a second Team All-American by Athlon Sports after a sensational junior campaign.

The Naples (Fla.) native is the second kicker in Bulls' history to be selected for All-American honors, joining Bill Gramatica (1998). Kloss scored 42% of South Florida's points in 2013 and connected on 18-of-23 field goals and 15-of-15 PAT's for a total of 69 points.

Well known for his strong leg, Kloss led the country with 11 made field goals from 40 yards plus, and four made field goals from 50 yards or more. Kloss is the eighth Bull to receive first, second or third team All-American honors, and the first since stud defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul did in 2009.
