TULSA'S SALAZAR NAMED GROZA AWARD "STAR OF THE WEEK"
Sep 9, 2013
Palm Beach, Fla. - University of Tulsa place-kicker Carl Salazar was named as one of college football's place-kicking "Stars of the Week" by the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, it was announced today.
College football's top kicking award, the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award presented by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission recognizes three of the top kickers each week from FBS division teams as the "Stars of the Week."
Salazar, North Carolina State's Niklas Sade and BYU's Justin Sorensen were this week's winners.
Looking for his first career field goal, Salazar didn't get any chances in the first half of Tulsa's home opener against Colorado State. But as time expired at the end of the game, Salazar connected on his third field goal of the half, a 34-yarder that completed Tulsa's 30-27 comeback victory over the Rams.
The senior from Broken Arrow, Okla. also scored from 31 and 23 yards out to set the scene for his game-winner. It was quite the bounce-back performance for Salazar, who went 0-for-2 in his first career game last week.
Salazar was also 3-of-3 on PATs for 12 total points in the Hurricane victory.
Tulsa plays at Oklahoma this Saturday at 11:00 am (CT). The game will be televised on ESPN2.
