AMES – Iowa State placekicker Connor Assalley was named a Lou Groza Award Star of the Week by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission today.

The Lou Groza Award is given annually to the nation’s top placekicker.

A sophomore walk-on from Naperville, Ill., Assalley was perfect in his four field goal attempts and his two PAT tries in Iowa State’s 26-13 win over Akron on Saturday.

Assalley booted field goals from 27, 29, 33 and 37 yards en route to scoring 14 points for the Cyclones.

Assalley has made all seven of his field goal attempts this season, one of four kickers nationally still perfect with seven or more attempts. He also ranks third nationally in field goals made per game at 2.3.
