Georgia State football A to Z: W is for Wil Lutz

Because kickers deserve to have their photos run too: Georgia State's Wil Lutz went 3-for-5 on Saturday. (Georgia State)

Continuing to mix things up, I thought I’d do a look-ahead to Georgia State’s August camp in a different format, A-to-Z:

I’ll continue to post one letter a day on the blog for the next 26 days:

Today is …

W is for Wil Lutz.

Based upon recent results, it seems probable if Georgia State is going to win a few games this year, the outcome may come down to a late field.

Lutz will most likely be the kicker trying to win the game.

He completed seven of his eight (that’s right, eight) attempts last year. Just one kicker, Navy’s Austin Grebe, had fewer attempts last year. There are many reasons why: including turnovers stopping the offense, and the need to go for it on fourth down to get touchdowns and reduce deficits.

Lutz’s only miss came from longer than 40 yards. So, he’s accurate.

Lutz actually kicked a 67-yard field goal during practice earlier this year. So, he’s got range.

Now, he just needs a few chances.
