Oberkrom Tabbed Lou Groza Award Semifinalist

Nov. 5, 2015

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Palm Beach County Sports Commission has announced TCU's Jaden Oberkrom as a semifinalist for the 2015 Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award, presented by the Orange Bowl.

Oberkrom is a Lou Groza Award semifinalist for the third time. He is TCU's career leader in field goals with 70, a total that tops all active players nationally. He is just five shy of tying the Big 12 mark of 75 field goals held by Oklahoma's Michael Hunnicutt (2011-14).

Oberkrom is 12-of-15 on attempts this season. He equaled a TCU record with a 57-yard kick last week versus West Virginia. He is 7-of-7 on attempts of at least 40 yards, including 3-of-3 from 50 yards or more. He ranks second in Big 12 history with his 73.7 percentage (28-of-38) on attempts of at least 40 yards.

A senior from Arlington, Texas, Oberkrom has four of the six-longest field goals in TCU history. He is the Horned Frogs' career leader in points with 411.

Oberkrom has made all 46 of his PATs this season and is 201-of-202 in his career.

TCU's Michael Reeder was the 1995 Lou Groza Award recipient.
