UCLA kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn started his career by missing two extra point attempts. More than three years later, he’s become a Lou Groza Award winner and a consensus All-American.
“You kind of just take it kick by kick,” he said.
Fairbairn settled for Sporting News’ All-American second team on Tuesday, ending his chances of becoming the 11th Bruin to ever earn unanimous All-American status. He finished behind Florida State’s Robert Aguayo, who won the Lou Groza Award in 2013.
