Tom Lynch Wins Fred Mitchell Award

Posted by Jason Dannelly
CHICAGO - Saint Xavier University junior place-kicker Tom Lynch (Frankfort, Ill./Southern Illinois University/Joliet Junior College/Lincoln-Way East) is the recipient of the 2010 Fred Mitchell Award. The Award is provided to the nation's top place-kicker in FCS, Division II, Division III and NAIA for excellence on the football field and in the community. Over 600 place-kickers are eligible for the Award.
The Award is named for Fred Mitchell, the All-American place-kicker from Wittenberg University and longtime sports columnist for the Chicago Tribune. Mitchell said, "I am pleased to congratulate Tom Lynch as the recipient of the 2010 Fred Mitchell Award. It is significant to note that Lynch's field goal percentage (13 of 15 for .866), extra point total (82) and total points (121) stack up very well to the equally impressive numbers of this year's Lou Groza Award winner, Dan Bailey (.857, 65 and 137) of FBS school Oklahoma State, who is that school's all-time leading scorer after his record-breaking season. Lynch also averaged 60 yards on his kickoffs and had 11 touchbacks for Saint Xavier University. I am equally proud of Lynch's sincere commitment to school and community service, which helps set him apart from an incredibly strong field of finalists in the eyes of our Selection Committee."
