Maryland junior kicker Brad Craddock has been named to the watch list for the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, given annually to the top kicker in college football.

Craddock was a semifinalist for the Groza award last year. After making 62 percent of his field goals as a freshman in 2012, he missed just four of his 25 attempts last season.

His mark of 84 percent was 28th-best nationally and ranked as the fourth-highest conversion rate in Terps history.

Entering his junior year, Craddock ranks second in school history in career field goal percentage (75.6 percent) and is ninth in school history with 31 made field goals.

He was one of 30 kickers named to the Groza Watch List.
