Clemson Kicker Greg Huegel Out For Season With Torn ACL

Clemson vs USC

Clemson will be without its starting kicker for the remainder of the season.

"It was a freak accident on the last play of practice", head coach Dabo Swinney told reporters. He walked off the practice field and we hoped it was just a strain or a bruise, but the tests revealed a torn ACL. The former walk-on was a Lou Groza Award semifinalist previous year and had hit two of his four field goals to start off this season, one of which was a career-long 49 yard kick just last week.

Huegel, a junior from Blythewood, joined the team as a walk-on in 2015 and made a splash in his first season, making a nation-leading 27 field goals and earning first-team Freshman All-America honors by USA Today. After the team's top kicker was suspended, Huegel moved to the top of the depth chart and Swinney joked that he discovered him in kicking a can in a grocery store parking lot. "He really had a good August camp", Swinney said.

Huegel will be replaced by junior backup Alex Spence. The Florence native has kicked off only twice this season and has not attempted a field goal in his career.
