Steve McLaughlin HOF
     Arizona's Steve McLaughlin topped a remarkable four-year career in 1994 by winning the Lou Groza Collegiate Placekicker Award as the nation's best-the one player you want to kick in a clutch. He certainly did in 1994, earning consensus first-team All-America honors. He made 80 percent of his kicks during the season, including an amazing 12 of 16 beyond 40 yards and three-for-five from beyond 50 yards. He led the Pac-10 in scoring with 95 points in 1994, and was the first in the league and second nationally with 2.1 field goals per game. He kicked a career-best 54-yard field goal against California to earn an AT&T Long Distance Award for the longest kick of the week. Best of all was the improvement and mental adjustment he made from the beginning of his career to the end, notable overcoming a "wide right" miss at Miami that would have stunned the No.1 Hurricanes in 1992.
