A-State’s Davis Earns Weekly CFPA Honor
Sep 10, 2013
Arkansas State senior Brian Davis was named one of eight FBS players to earn 
national Honorable Mention Placekicker of the Week accolades from the
College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) on Monday after connecting on
3-of-3 field goal attempts against Auburn last Saturday. Davis, listed on the 2013 Lou Groza Award Watch List and a candidate for the
CFPA’s national Placekicker Trophy Award, connected on multiple field goals for
the 12th time of his career with his season-high three field goals. He now has
44 for his career, which leaves him only one shy of tying the fifth most in Sun
Belt Conference history.
The Brentwood, Tenn. native’s three field goals covered 34, 21 and 42 yards,
with his final one pulling the Red Wolves within 21-9 of the Tigers with 7:53 left
in the third quarter. Dating back to last season, Davis has now made his last six
consecutive field goals and can tie the sixth longest streak in school history if he
makes his next attempt.
Davis is currently ranked second in A-State history for most points by kicking (252), most extra points made (120) and most field goals made. He also holds
an .815 field goal percentage (44-of-54), which is the second best ever in the
Sun Belt Conference. He was a Lou Groza Award semifinalist last year as a junior
when he broke the school record for most points by kicking in a season with 104.
A-State opens Sun Belt Conference play with a 6:30 p.m. home game against
Troy on Thursday. Season tickets for A-State’s five remaining home games are
still available through the Arkansas State University Ticket Office. To purchase
your tickets call the ticket office at 870-972-2781 or visit tickets.astate.edu.
