Three Words Not Typically Used In The Same Sentence: Duke, Football, All-America

Big kudos to Duke redshirt junior kicker Will Snyderwine who secured his second 2010 All-America citation on Thursday evening by garnering second team honors from the Walter Camp Foundation. Last month, Snyderwine was a first team All-America choice by the American Football Coaches Association.

(Editor’s note: Somehow we missed Snyderwine’s first honor and we apologize for that. Really, we mean it. That was a fumble. Any kid that earns national awards deserves recognition here at the “ACC Blog of Record.” Our bad. Well done, Will.)

A native of Potomac, Md., Snyderwine is the first kicker in Duke history to earn All-America accolades. And the first Blue Devil to win All-America honors since….well, we don’t know since when cause we fired the research department (see above).

This season, Snyderwine made 21-of-24 field goals and all 32 of his PAT attempts for 95 total points. He set school single-season records for field goals, consecutive field goals made (18) and field goal percentage (.875) while posting the second-highest single-season point total. His 52-yard bomb against Georgia Tech matched the ninth-longest successful kick in school history.

In the ACC, Snyderwine ranks first in field goals per game (1.75), tied for first in PAT percentage (1.000), sixth in points per game (7.9) and fourth in field goal percentage (.875). Nationally, he ranks sixth in field goals per game.

For his career, Snyderwine has made 38-of-44 field goals and he has never missed a PAT.
