Santos, who claimed the Lou Groza Collegiate Place Kicker Award this past weekend, was named the All-American kicker after making all 21 of his field goal attempts, including a 57-yarder against Rice University to tie a school record.

Santos is the first Green Wave football player to earn the honor since kicker Seth Marler made the first team in 2001, and he’s the 19th football player in Tulane history to make All-American.
