Place kicker Cody Sandlin is the latest UT Martin football player to make College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) watch list for the upcoming season.
Sandlin, a rising senior from Goodlettsville, made 14-of-17 field goals this past season, including a record-tying 53-yarder at Eastern Kentucky.
Sandlin also made 45-of-48 PATs. He made 9-of-9 PATs against Union College, 6-of-6 against No. 24 Murray State and was 7-of-8 against Austin Peay.
Sandlin currently has 148 career points, which is the fifth most in school history for a kicker. He is 74 points away from becoming UT Martin’s all-time leading scorer by kicking, behind Ki Tok Chu.
UT Martin has had five players make College Football Performance Award Watch lists.
Among those making the watch lists are Sandlin, quarterback Derek Carr, running back Tevin Barksdale, tight end Ben Everett and defensive lineman Montori Hughes.
