The awards keep rolling in for Oklahoma kicker Gabe Brkic after his stunning season-opening performance against Tulane on Saturday.
Brkic tied a school record with four field goals, and tied an NCAA record with three field goals of at least 50 yards. He buried kicks of 51, 55 and 56 yards and also hit a 26-yarder, and on Tuesday was one of four FBS kickers honored by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission as a Lou Groza Award “Star of the Week.”
On Monday he was named Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week.
The 56-yard bomb by the two-time Lou Groza Award semifinalist is the school’s longest field goal since 1977. He also converted four PATs in the Sooners’ 40-35 win over the Green Wave.
