Maryland junior kicker Brad Craddock has been selected as one of 20 semifinalists for the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, given annually to the top kicker in the country.
Craddock, who was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award last year, is 14 of 14 on field goals and is one of just two kickers nationally yet to miss a field goal after 10 or more attempts. He propelled the Terps to a 20-19 win over Penn State on Saturday with a go-ahead 43-yard field goal in the final minute of the fourth quarter.
Craddock has made 20 consecutive field goals dating back to last season, which is the longest active streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision and the third-longest streak in Big Ten history.
Craddock needs just five more makes to eclipse former Ohio State kicker Mike Nugent’s conference record of 24 straight converted field goals.
Finalists for the Lou Groza Award will be announced Nov. 24.
