FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Fayetteville State kicker/punter Antonio Mayo (So., Jacksonville, NC) has been recognized by the Fred Mitchell Award for his outstanding performance on the field and in the community during the month of September.
“September had quite a few college football games decided by late scores by place-kickers, long snappers, holders and blockers on special teams,” said Fred Mitchell. “It has been a very exciting start to the college football season. We are pleased to recognize place-kickers that were nominated by their schools for extraordinary performance during the month.”
Mayo compiled 24 points for the Broncos in September on 4-of-5 field goals and 12-of-12 extra point. He scored seven points against Elizabeth City State on September 22, which included a career-long 42-yard field goal. Mayo followed that performance by breaking his career-long field goal by making a 45-yard field goal the following week against Chowan. He is also averaging 51 yards on 20 kickoffs this season. Mayo is involved in Fayetteville State’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), and recently participated in the announcement of the SAAC essay contest with local elementary schools about anti-bullying in schools.
A total of 31 place-kickers were recognized by the Fred Mitchell Award for their performance on the football field and in the community.
“The place-kickers we recognize are having tremendous success on the gridiron so far this season,” added the Award’s Selection Committee Chairman Chris Kearney. “In addition, their civic and volunteer activities are having a profound and positive impact in their communities. We are delighted to honor this group.”
The breakdown of the 31 place-kickers is as follows:
- Collegiate Division – 9 FCS, 9 Division II, 10 Division III, 2 NAIA and 1 NJCAA
- State – The place-kickers play at schools located in 24 different states with three place-kickers at schools in Pennsylvania
- Year – 16 seniors, eight juniors, six sophomores, one freshman
