Georgia football has had an abundance of good kickers in its history, but who are the top six? We take a look and present the top-six kickers in school history.

Georgia football always seems to have a talented kicker on its team that has ice in his veins.

While of course, the Dawgs have had great quarterbacks, running backs and other positions, I feel like the kickers always get left out of the equation. However, there always seems to be impressive kickers on the team.

I mean to be a kicker at the University of Georgia, you have to have guts and a hell of a leg. Not every great kicker has what it takes to play in the SEC.

The Butler father and son duo are two of the best kickers ever. Rex Robinson is notorious for the Larry Munson call. Brandon Coutu and Billy Bennett had to get Georgia out of predicaments more often than not.

Currently, the Dawgs have Rodrigo Blankenship, who has already broken multiple records and still has one more season to play. He will set a precedent, but until his career is over, this list will only include past kickers.

Some of Georgia’s top kickers are  Billy Bennett, Brandon Coutu, Marshall Morgan, Kevin Butler, Drew Butler, Rex Robinson, Bob Etter, Kim Braswell, John Kasay, and Blair Walsh.

One of the first great Georgia kickers played in the 1960s with Etter. His leg gave Vince Dooley some success in his first three years. He had a 71.4 completion rate as he made 25 of 35 field goals. According to Rival’s Patrick Garbin, Etter’s completion rate was  53.4 percent better than the average 46.6 percent completion rate across the NCAA at the time.

That is incredible, but he isn’t one of my top kickers. The same goes for Kasay. He was Georgia’s kicker from 1987-1990. In Garbin’s article, he said that Kasay, in the 1989 and 1990 seasons combined, scored 33 percent of the Bulldogs points.

Here are my top six Georgia football kickers. I chose six of the most memorable kickers or who I think should be memorable and dove into their stats and what made them great. Hope you enjoy it!
