Stitser Named to Groza Watch List

Clint Stitser's season ending injury was arguably the biggest setback Fresno State suffered in 2005. Despite only playing in six games, he was named one of 20 semi-finalists for the 2005 Lou Groza Award.

Stitser is picking up right where he left off, he was named to the preseason Groza Watch List. He is just one of 30 named to the list and only one of two WAC kickers, the other is Danny Horwendel of Louisiana Tech.

Stitser has looked great in fall camp, and was the most impressive player at last Saturday's scrimmage. He was perfect on all his field goals, and looks even better than last year.

It is amazing that Stitser has only attempted 12 career field goals, but is still considered one of the best kickers in the nation.

When all is said and done Stitser will be the best kicker we have ever had. We have never had a kicker with a leg like Stitser and if can stay healthy and continue to bomb the ball the way he does, he will be a Groza winner before his career at state is over. I never thought I would like anyone more than the clutch Visintainer but Stitser is about as reliable as they come.
