Lou Groza Award has their eyes on Mevis!
As we enter the month of August, the watch lists for the College Football season are really starting to come together. On Tuesday, we saw Ty’Ron Hopper and Kris Abrams-Draine land on the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List, plus Javon Foster on the Outland Trophy Watch List.
In unsurprising news on Wednesday, Mizzou senior kicker Harrison Mevis has been named to the Lou Groza Award Watch List for the nation’s top kicker.
Mevis, who appeared on the preseason All-SEC 2nd team — is one of 30 kickers in the country to land on the Lou Groza Award watch list.
The placeholder for Harrison Mevis on Day 3 of Mizzou’s “Fall” Camp? Well, that would be Brady Cook.
“It’s not unusual for a quarterback to be a placeholder and it could be something that we could potentially see in 2023.”
Moving on, on The Big 550 KTRS’ Big Sports Show — Brendan Wiese and Ben Frederickson compiled a draft of Mizzou Football’s Most Impactful Players for 2023:
Wiese’s draft picks: Luther Burden, Kris Abrams-Draine, Ty’Ron Hopper, Joe Moore, Sam Horn
BenFred’s draft picks: Brady Cook, Cam’Ron Johnson, Mookie Cooper, DaRius Robinson, Johnny Walker Jr.
Whose draft are you going with?
This poll is closed
We also have another Kerrick Jackson bat signal (possibly for two commitments)? Stay tuned — because the two Tigers GIFs are interesting.
Onto the links. M-I-Z!
