Juhl Named to CFPA Placekicker Award Watch List

From SFA Athletics

NACOGDOCHES, TX (Press Release)- Senior kicker Mason Juhl has been named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) FCS Placekicker Award Watch List, announced today by the organization. Juhl is one of 34 kickers named to the list which recognizes the top placekickers among the FCS level.

Juhl has taken the reigns as the Lumberjacks' primary kicker in 2015, hitting seven of his nine field goal attempts and 33 of his 34 extra point tries. Over a span of the last three games, Juhl has made seven of eight attempts, including a career-long 48-yarder in the win over Incarnate Word, while hitting both a 38 and 39-yard attempt in the win over Houston Baptist.

Juhl currently ranks second in the Southland Conference in PAT kicking percentage (97.1) while ranking third in both field goal percentage (77.8) and scoring for kickers (6.8 ppg). For his career, Juhl has converted on eight of his 10 field goal tries and is 40 of 41 on PAT attempts, ranking among the Lumberjack all-time leaders in both categories.

The Dallas native was one of four Southland Conference players listed among the watch list, joined by Central Arkansas' Jace Denker, Lamar's Alex Ball and Northwestern State's Chris Moore.

Juhl and the rest of the Lumberjacks look to close out the 2015 season on a high note, traveling to Natchitoches, Louisiana, this weekend for a showdown with border rival Northwestern State. The game against the Demons marks the 50th Battle for Chief Caddo, kicking off at 3 p.m. at Turpin Stadium.
