The state of Georgia has become a hotbed for high school kickers. Just look at Richmond Hill. Coach Matt LeZotte currently has two former Wildcats kicking for FBS programs: Joseph Petrino (Maryland) and Britton Williams (Georgia Southern).
Petrino was the hero for Maryland on Friday night, nailing a game-winning 32-yard field goal to lift the Terrapins to a 20-17 win over Illinois. The win improved Maryland’s record to 3-0.
