LOU GROZA AWARD WINNERS

The Palm Beach County (FL) Sports Commission established the Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award in 1992. The award is presented each December to the nation's top Division I college place-kicker as determined by a national voting panel comprised of all Division I head coaches, sports writers and sportscasters from across the country, conference officials, various NFL kickers, and all previous Groza Award finalists.

The award is named in honor of Lou Groza, who was a long-time star of the Cleveland Browns. Groza, who was also a standout tackle before suffering a back injury, quickly earned the nickname of "The Toe" because of his kicking proficiency. As a result of his deadly field goal accuracy, he is regarded as the first kicker to be truly considered an offensive weapon. He transformed the art of kicking into the specialty it is today. Groza played 21 seasons for the Browns and led the NFL in field goals five times. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1974.
