Senior

Place Kicker

Frisco, Texas

Recruitment

Fry, who kicked for Prince of Peace Christian School in Carrollton, Texas, was offered by Louisiana Tech, but spurned it to walk on to the football team at South Carolina.

College Career

As we all know, Fry eventually earned a scholarship from the Gamecocks as he molded himself into one of the SEC’s top kickers. In his true freshman campaign, he made all but one of his 55 extra point attempts and was 15-18 on FG tries. A year later, he was a perfect 51-51 on extra points and hit 18 of 25 field goals, enough to put him on the All-SEC second team. Last season, he knocked through 20 of 28 FGs (including a career-best 52 yarder) and was perfect once more on point-after attempts (25-25). He will leave with a shot at being the program’s all-time leading scorer, needing just 41 points to reach Colin Mackie’s mark of 330. Fry’s also made a program-best 124 straight extra points.

2016 Outlook

Expect more of the same from Fry in 2016. By the way, let’s take a moment to reflect on the fact that it’s his final season. Feels like he’s been around forever, doesn’t it?
