Countryside kicker William Griswold made his college decision this past weekend by signing with Southern University, Cougars coach John Davis said.

Southern is coached by former NFL standout Stump Mitchell, who also was an assistant with the Redskins.

Griswold, rated the No. 1 kicker in the state by prokicker.com, was 49 of 53 on PATs and 8 of 11 on field goals. He finished with 167 career points and set the single-season record for most PATs made this season.

Griswold joins an impressive list of former Countryside kickers that have played in college, including Jon Peatty (Miami), Chase Hobby (Navy), Zach Hobby (Delaware), Josh Martinez (Memphis) and Pete Kontodiakos (Colorado State).
