The University of Alabama is a step closer to having its first award-winning field goal kicker in college football.

Will Reichard, a fifth-year senior, has been the most consistent specialist of the Nick Saban era. He arrived as a three-star prospect in 2019 from Hoover (Ala.) High School, but he has two Southeastern Conference Championship rings and a College Football Playoff National Championship ring. Reichard made all 50 of his extra point attempts and 18 of 21 field goals this season.
