Mizzou’s Baggett named to SEC All-Freshman team

Mizzou placekicker Andrew Baggett was named to the SEC’s All-Freshmen team after converting on 14 of his 20 kicks this season.

The Lee’s Summit native kicked a season long 46 yarder twice.  The first came against Arizona State and then against Syracuse, both at home.  After struggling early on, missing four of his first eight attempts in the first three games, Baggett turned into a reliable kicker hitting 10 of 12 down the stretch.

SEC Champion Alabama, Florida and Texas A&M led the way with four selections each, while Arkansas and South Carolina placed three on the team. Georgia, LSU and Ole Miss each had two.           

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was also chosen SEC Offensive Player of the Year earlier this week, as well as SEC Freshman of the Year and first team All-SEC. Georgia running back Todd Gurley was named to the second team.
