PK Grant Ressel
July 7, 2011
Columbia, Mo.. – The pre-season award candidates keep rolling out from the Mizzou Football program, with the latest being senior PK Grant Ressel. Ressel was named today to the pre-season watch list for the Lou Groza Award, which is presented annually to the nation’s most outstanding kicker.
Ressel, who has been a Groza semi-finalist each of the last two years, has made a combined 96.2% (127-of-132) of his total kicks over the last two seasons (43-of-46 FGs, and 84-of-86 PATs). In 2010, Ressel went 17-of-19 on field goals and led the Tigers with 96 points scored. That followed his amazing break out season in 2009, when he won 1st-Team All-American honors after breaking an NCAA single-season combined kick accuracy record (made 65-of-66 overall kicks that season, for a 98.5% success rate).
Ressel is the fourth Tiger this week to be named to pre-season watch lists for prestigious individual awards. He joins senior TE Michael Egnew (Mackey Award), junior LB Zaviar Gooden (Bednarik Award) and junior WR T.J. Moe (Biletnikoff Award) on the pre-season watch lists.
