Szmyt Named Groza Star of the Week

Andre Szmyt connected on all-five field goal attempts and scored 16 of Syracuse’s 22 points in the Orange’s victory over Virginia and was named a Lou Groza Award star of the week.

Szmyt, the 2018 winner of the award, is the most accurate kicker in program history and is off to a 9-for-10 start in 2022.

Szmyt tied a Syracuse record and had a new career high with five made field goals in Syracuse’s 22-20 win over Virginia. He was a perfect 5-for-5 connecting from 26, 28, 31, 32 and 40 yards on the day. His 31-yard field goal came with 1:14 left to give the Orange the go-ahead score. He also made his lone extra point.
He also had to do so with two different holders in the contest, as the team’s starting holder (Safety Justin Barron) was disqualified due to targeting in the third quarter.
