JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Another Red Wolf is in the spotlight in Watch List Season.

Arkansas State junior Blake Grupe was selected to the Lou Groza Award watch list on Wednesday. The honor goes to the best kicker in college football. It’s the 2nd straight season that Grupe has earned this accolade.

The Missouri native made 19 of 22 field goals and 53 of 54 extra points in the 2019 season. Grupe didn’t miss a field goal inside 40 yards (13 of 13). His longest FG was 46 yards. Grupe converted from that distance in a home game vs. Louisiana and against FIU in the Camellia Bowl. He was named a Groza semifinalist.

Grupe is the 4th Red Wolf to land on a national watch list this summer.
