Have you ever tied a 30-year old SEC record and had no one even notice? Well, you must not be a kicker then, specifically, you’re not Marshall Morgan.
The Georgia Bulldogs spent a lot of time honoring one of the greatest kickers of all time yesterday, Kevin Butler, but forgot to remember our current one.
Marshall Morgan made his 18th consecutive field goal yesterday, which tied him with former Tennessee kicker Fuad Reveiz from 1984 (the same year Butler kicked the 60-yarder against Clemson) for the longest streak without a missed field goal.
With Georgia’s special teams being such a disappointment in recent years (although quite impressive in last night’s 45-21 win over Clemson), having a kicker this good should be celebrated.
If Morgan makes his next field goal he will hold the SEC record for most consecutive field goals. Let’s not under-appreciate our kickers Georgia fans. As former greats like Rex Robinson, Kevin Butler, and Billy Bennett have all shown us…kickers win games.
Congratulations Marshall and here is hoping for number 19 against South Carolina! Go Dawgs!
