Chris Sailer Kicking Australian Import Brad Craddock Wins the Lou Groza Award!

In February of 2011 Chris Sailer Kicking made its annual trip to Australia to scout international talent through OzPunt.Net  I usually scout 40 plus punters that have aspirations of playing college football in the U.S . and/or playing in the NFL.  Very few athletes in Australia want to pursue kicking in the U.S.  But in 2011, I found a rare talent.  His name was….Brad Craddock.  At the time he was beyond raw.  I started with 3 steps back and 2 steps over.  Within a few hours, I knew he could play college football.

A few months later, with some convincing, he landed a scholarship to the University of Maryland. Since then, he has gone on to break record after record, surpassing Chris Sailer Kicking’s own Obi Egekeze.  And tonight he put the cherry on top, taking home the 2014 Lou Groza Award present the the College Placekicker of the Year.  Congratulations to Brad and his family.  OzPunt also deserves great recognition.

Chris Sailer Kicking will again travel to Australia in February of 2015.  Who will be next?
