Former MA player named to watch list for place-kickers
By KEVIN MALONEY
The Watch List for the 2012 Fred Mitchell Award includes 44 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), Division II, Division III, National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) collegiate place-kickers nominated by their colleges for excellence on the football field and in the community.
“These place-kickers are terrific on the football field and off the field representing their schools, their football teams, their conferences, their communities, their families and themselves,” said Chris Kearney, the award’s selection committee chairman. “We look forward to following their accomplishments during the next few months.”
Northwest Mississippi Community College rising sophomore Chase Carpenter of Slayden (Marshall Academy) finds his name on this year’s list, which includes place-kickers from more than 750 eligible colleges.
“It is a pleasure to include these fine young men on the Watch List for this award,” Fred Mitchell said. “We are delighted to recognize them based on outstanding performance in the community and expectations going into the 2012 college football season. It is also a thrill to see so many familiar names on the Watch List, including 22 place-kickers who were finalists for the award last season.”
Carpenter was an All-MACJC Second Team selection a year ago and two-time NJCAA Special Teams Player of the Week selection. He ranked second on the team in scoring, with 57 points from four of seven field goals and 45 of 49 extra points. His 45 extra points made and 49 attempted both rank sixth in a single season at Northwest.
Carpenter scored 33 points in the month of October from three of three FGs and 24 of 25 point-after kicks and had a career-high 12 points in a 66-41 win over Holmes on homecoming.
