Alabama football recruiting: Top-ranked kicker Adam Griffith has made pressure field goals
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- From his seat in Bryant-Denny Stadium on an early November night, Adam Griffith saw the perils of college football kicking.
He was on a visit the day Crimson Tide specialists missed four of six kicks in the 9-6 overtime loss to LSU. “I think for the first time there, he felt the pressure of being a college kicker,” said Hal Lamb, Griffith’s high school coach.
As the nation’s No. 1 high school kicker, according to two recruiting services, the Calhoun (Ga.) High School senior faced his share of tense moments. That and his character, Lamb said, should help his transition to college.
