It was announced earlier today that senior kicker Kevin Grady (Seattle, WA) of the No. 23 University of Redlands football team was named an Honorable Mention Preseason All-American by Beyond Sports Network. This accolade follows Grady's pair of All-America nods that came after the 2012 campaign.
This two-time All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) First-Team selection looks to build upon a stellar junior season during which he averaged 59.5 yards per kickoff on 64 attempts and included 20 touchbacks. He also led the team in scoring with 77 points by connecting on 35 point-after-tries and 14 field goals. He split the uprights a school-record five times in the Maroon and Gray's final game of the season, helping the Bulldogs to secure a 63-40 victory over Whittier College.
