Kicker Meyer named to watch list
Iowa football player Mike Meyer was named to the College Football Performance Awards special team's watch list for the 2012 placekicker and specialist trophies.
This is Meyer's second-consecutive season to appear on the watch list.
Meyer handled all field goals, extra-point attempts, and kickoffs during the 2011 season. He is 28-of-37 overall in field goals, including a personal-best 50-yard shot made against Iowa State in 2011. The junior-to-be has scored 159 points in his first two seasons on the field.
Meyer, a 6-2 Dubuque native, made 70 percent of his field-goal attempts last season, 14-of-20.
He was named the national Placekicker of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards following his 50-yard bomb against the Cyclones. The kicker was also a semifinal candidate for the 2011 Lou Groza Award for placekickers.
Next season's Groza Award winner will be announced in early January 2013.
