Placekicker Tyler Stampler has been named to the College Football Performance Award (CFPA) Placekicker Watch list announced by the CFPA Monday afternoon. Stampler is one of 34 kickers that made the watch list and one of three placekickers from the WAC.
Stampler, a native of Davie, Fla., played in all 12 games for the Aggies in 2010, handling all the field goal and PAT attempts, as well as kickoff duties in three games. Stampler led the team in scoring in 2010 with 66 points, after hitting 16-of-19 field goals on the season and 18-of-19 on PAT’s. He hit 84.2 percent of his field goal attempts, which was first in the conference. Stampler was 4-for-4 inside 30 yards and 11-of-12 inside 40 yards. At one point in the season, Stampler hit nine straight field goal attempts, while making his last 12 PAT attempts of the season. Against New Mexico (Oct. 9), Stampler hit the game winning field goal with less than two minutes remaining to give NM State their first win of the season and second straight win over their in-state rival. He also hit three field goals in that game and was named the WAC Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts. In the Aggies’ second win of the season, Stampler hit three field goals against San Jose State (Oct. 30), including a long of 43 yards. He was again named WAC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second time.
Stampler is second all-time in field goals made in a season and field goal percentage in a season. He is also in the top-10 all-time in NM State history in field goals made.
