Former Dr. Phillips placekicker Shawn Moffitt had a tremendous season for the UCF Knights in 2013 — and people apparently took notice.
Moffitt, a rising senior with the Knights, has been named to College Football Performance Awards Placekickers Trophy Watch List, announced Monday. Earlier this month, Moffitt was on the Lou Groza Award Watch List, which honors the nation's best placekicker.
The former Panther finished 2013 for UCF making 21-of-23 field goal attempts — a 91.3 percentage that set a school record. Moffitt was also a perfect 49-for-49 on extra point attempts. He was instrumental in the Knights’ historic season that saw them compile a 12-1 record en route to a Fiesta Bowl victory over heavily favored Baylor.
The UCF Knights open the 2014 regular season against Penn State in Dublin, Ireland, on August 30 at 8:30 a.m. EST.
