College football’s top kicking award, the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award presented by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission recognizes three of the top kickers each week from FBS division teams as the “Stars of the Week.”
Sophomore Jeremiah Detmer took over the national lead in field goals made with his 5-for-5 performance in the University of Toledo’s 29-23 victory over previously undefeated Cincinnati on Saturday in Toledo. The Hilliard, Ohio native connected from 47, 43, 42, 25 and 20 yards to bring his total for the season to 18-of-23 on field goals. He added two PATs and has yet to miss an extra point attempt in 32 tries. With Detmer’s help in knocking off the 21st ranked team in the country, Toledo defeated its first ranked opponent since 2004, and improved to 7-1 for their best start since 2001. Detmer’s 86 points are the second-most in the nation by a kicker. Source
Congrats to Detmer. Keep up the good work.
