Mike Meyer’s three successful seasons as the Iowa football team’s placekicker has earned him a spot on the 2013 Lou Groza Award preseason watch list.

This is the third-consecutive year the native of Dubuque has been put on the watch list — Meyer was a semifinalist for the honor in 2011 and ’12. He is one of 30 kickers named to the watch list, which is given out by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission.

Athletes are placed on the watch list based on their performances during the previous season and their expectations for the upcoming season. Meyer’s streak of 81-consecutive PATs ranks 10th all time in the Big Ten.

The semifinalists for the Groza award will be announced Nov. 4, and the three finalists will be named on Nov. 25. The winner of the 2013 Lou Groza Award will be announced on Dec. 10 on the “Home Depot College Football Award Show.”
