The Lou Groza Award is presented annually to the top college football placekicker in the United States by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission. The award is named after former Ohio State Buckeyes and Cleveland Browns player Lou Groza.
Szmyt, a freshman from Vernon Hills, Illinois, leads the nation with 28 made field goals, five more than the next closest kicker and a new ACC single-season record. At 28-for-31 thus far, he rates highly in accuracy as well, ranking 3rd in the nation among kickers with more a dozen attempts. The total includes a perfect 3-for-3 on long-distance kicks including a 54-yard make. Combined with his 51-for-51 mark on PATs, he has already set a Syracuse single-season scoring record with 135 points, making him the leading scorer in all of FBS.
