NEW ORLEANS -- Cairo Santos is the winner of the Lou Groza Award, meaning he's been named the best college football kicker in all the land.

In 2012, Santos was perfect on field goals, going 21 for 21. And 12 of those kicks were from more than 40 yards out, with two from beyond 50.

He's originally from Brazil and played high school ball in Florida.

He's the second Green Wave kicker to win the award. Seth Marler won it 11 years ago.
