Ball State's Brian Jackson has made the short list for the Lou Groza Award. According to The Ball State Daily News, Jackson is third on Ball State's all-time scoring list - though his senior status makes it unlikely he will go any higher.
"[The Groza Award] is one of my goals going into every season as a collegiate kicker," Jackson said. "I have had a decent season individually, but I didn't even think I'd have a chance for it because of the amount of attempts. Usually the bigger-name kickers get that opportunity. I was very surprised and very, very happy."Kudos to Brian. Considering his high school team went winless for his last three years it's nice to see things have worked out better in college.
