Alex Gets His Due!
Henery made 15 of 16 field goals this year. He didn't miss an extra point. His other career stats:
*He's made 89.2% of his career field goal attempts (66-of-74). The NCAA record is 87.8% by Florida’s Bobby Raymond.
*He's made 77.4% of his career field goals from 40 yards or longer (24-of-31). The NCAA career record is 72.1% by Georgia’s Billy Bennet.
*He's made 97.7% of his career field goals from inside 40 yards (42-of-43). The NCAA career record is 97.0% by Florida’s Bobby Raymond.
*He's tied for the NCAA record with six career games with at least four field goals.
*He's made 256 of his 265 career kicks (extra points and field goals), a 96.6% accuracy rate. The NCAA FBS career record is 94.9% set by Missouri’s Jeff Wolfert.
(Huskers Gameday compiled this list here.)
Despite those numbers, Henery was not a Groza finalist, nor did he make the Big 12 Coaches' first team. Both of those spots went to Oklahoma State's Dan Bailey, who only made 22-of-26 field goals this year.
Other Huskers also making the AP's first-team All-Big 12 squad were: Cornerback Prince Amukamara, defensive tackle Jared Crick, linebacker LaVonte David, Peso Eric Hagg and guard Ricky Henry.
NU and OSU led the way with six players each on the first teams. Wednesday, the AP announced that Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez and David were named Big 12 Offensive and Defensive Newcomers of the Year.
