Errthum Named to the Fred Mitchell Award Watch List

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – UNI Panther Kicker Austin Errthum was named to the Fred Mitchell Award Watch List. The award honors the best kicker among FCS, Division II, Division III and NAIA Institutions.

The Award is named for Fred Mitchell, the record-setting place-kicker, Wittenberg University Athletic Hall of Famer, author, philanthropist and former Chicago Tribune sports columnist.

The recipient of the Fred Mitchell Award will be chosen based on excellence on the football field and in the community.

The Award's Watch List is released in August, top performers are recognized monthly during the college football season, and the winner (who is not required to be on the Watch List) is announced in mid-December.
