Hi,

Congratulations to OzPunt and Maryland Footballs Brad Craddock for winning the Lou Groza Award.  The Lou Groza award is presented to the best College Kicker in the Nation.

Brad was one of 3 Finalists, and it was no surprise to anyone who has seen Brad play or train that he would be this year’s winner.  It is staggering to see all of the kind words from people who know Brad from both here in Australia and America.

The voting panel of 300 consist of Division 1 head coaches, sports writers and sportscasters from across the county, conference representatives, professional kickers and previous winners.  The Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award has become the most prestigious college football award for kickers.

Brads season has seen him set a number of school conference records due his very accurate kicking ability.  No Australian has ever won this award, so Brad is in a class of his own, and will be looked up to by the next crop of Aussie kickers coming through the system.

I look forward to who will be the first person to come along to a training session and lets me know they want to be just like Brad Craddock.

No Australian has ever been a finalist for this award, so Brad is in uncharted waters.  Whether the award is presented to Brad or not, Brad has been a great representative to all Australians who have a dream to play College Football.

Enjoy your moment Brad, it is well deserved.
