Roberto Aguayo Facts
- After Roberto had redshirted (a practice in US college athletics through which players delay their participation in sports teams to lengthen their period of eligibility) his freshman year (2012) at the Florida State University, he had set the field ablaze with his heroics in the 2013 season. He had led the ACC in points (157) and field goals converted (21) that year. He had also led the ACC in field goals made (27) in the 2014 season.
- From 2013 to 2015, for 3 years in a row, he was named in both the ‘First-Team All-American’ and the ‘First-Team All-ACC‘. In 2013, he had won the BCS National Championship Game with his university and had also been honored with the ‘Lou Groza Award’, presented annually to the best college football placekicker in the United States by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission.
- Throughout his 3 years with Florida State University, he had successfully connected with 69 out of 78 field-goal attempts (88.5%) and had never missed an extra point in 198 attempts. This incredible accuracy had earned him the moniker of ‘Mr. Perfect’.
- When he was selected 59th overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft, he had become the first placekicker to have been picked in the 2nd round of an NFL Draft since Mike Nugent who had been drafted 47th overall in the 2005 NFL Draft by the New York Jets.
