At last, a postseason honor for Kloss

13

December

Marvin Kloss has finally bagged an awards-season prize, albeit later than most expected.

A first- and second-team omission on the all-American Athletic Conference team selected by coaches, Kloss was chosen a second-team pick on the Athlon All-America team released
Friday.

One of three Groza Award finalists, Kloss is the eighth player in Bulls history to earn first-, second- or third-team all-America status, and the sixth in the BCS era. Bill Gramatica (1998) is the only other USF kicker to be named an all-American.

Kloss' 2013 numbers have long since been committed to memory by Bulls fans: His 11 field goals of 40 or more yards -- and four of 50 or more -- led the nation. His 13 consecutive field goals, a streak spanning 11 weeks, were a school record.

A two-time AAC Special Teams Player of the Week, Kloss scored all 21 of USF's offensive points in its two triumphs.
