UM’s Matt Bosher is on the preseason watch list for the Lou Groza Award, presented annually to the nation’s top placekicker. The senior kicker from Jupiter, Florida is also a candidate for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award, which recognizes seniors who excel in the areas of community, classroom, character and competition.

After UM Baseball’s disaster in Ganesville I thought the summer doldrums would commence with the image of error after error burned in my brain until football season. Fortunately for me the marketing department wanted to do their football shoot this week, and now I’m in full football mode.
So early this morning I made my way to
Joe Robbie Stadium Pro Player Stadium Dolphin Stadium Landshark Stadium Sun Life Stadium to shoot Jacory Harris, Brandon Harris, Allen Bailey, Matt Bosher, Orlando Franklin, Colin McCarthy and Leonard Hankerson for the 2010 Hurricanes poster. We set up in the ‘Canes locker room and did the group shot then had fun with some individual set ups.
While I’ll wait for the poster release before I show the groups I’ll give you a peek at the individuals, like Jacory’s shot above, every so often in the coming days on the Caneshooter.com Facebook fan page.
Bosher has earned the ACC’s Specialist of the Week honor twice this season, and currently has made 12 consecutive field goals, which ranks second both for a single season and a career, and 88 consecutive PATs, which ranks third all-time in school history.
Yesterday was a big day for Hurricanes kicker/punter Matt Bosher. The junior from Jupiter took home All-ACC first team honors as a kicker, All-ACC second team honors as a punter, and Specialist of the Week for his efforts during the ‘Canes 31-10 victory over USF last Saturday.
Bosher extended his streak of consecutive field goals to 12, which ranks second both for a single season and a career, and 88 consecutive PATs, which ranks third all-time in school history. Bosher also punted four times and totaled 179 yards for a 44.8 yards per punt average, and landed two kicks inside South Florida’s 20-yard line.
