RALEIGH, N.C. - NC State's fourth-year kicker Christopher Dunn has been named to the preseason watch list for the 2021 Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award.

He ranks third in school history with 290 career points scored - third-best among current league players, while his .836 field goal percentage is the fourth-best ever by a Wolfpack kickoff.

The Lexington, N.C., native Has connected on all 122 of his PAT attempts - that total ranks second in school history and leads all returning league players in career field goals.

The finalists will be announced on No. 23rd and then the national winner will be honored on Dec. 9 during the Home Depot College Football Awards on ESPN.
