Marvin's omission is a travesty. 14 FG's over 40 yards. Amazing

First team kicker made two from more than 40, none over 50. Marvin had 7 plus 50.

Second team kicker had 9 greater than 40, a good year until measured against DM.

Voters should be embarrassed.

On Twitter there are congratulations to Marvin-1st Team AA; Lorenzo-2nd team AA; and Warhby, 3rd team AA. This is from STATS, evidently. Don't know how Marvin got overlooked before, but he definitely deserves it.

Here is STATS. Marvin first team, LoLo second, Wahrby third.

Marvin clearly the best kicker at the FCS level if not all of college football. We know it and apparently STATS knows. The others must be smoking crack. Speaking of Marvin, he is listed as a junior but he is graduating, correct? I know he's one of the smartest kids at school and plans on a career in medicine but didn't remember if he will play his senior year or not. Anyone know for sure? My apologies if this has already been covered.

Why we could not get him 5-10 yards closer at the end of the YSU game, I will never know and forever rue.

Marvin will not be back next year. Debating between going to medical school and trying out for NFL.

Never more proud than when our guys are on the true academic teams. We know they are student athletes, but sometimes we forget.

a UNC friend of mine said Marvin visited UNC over the weekend and could play immediately since he will graduate from Wofford. Anybody else heard anything? Both his parents went to UNC and were athletes there.

What a great opportunity for him. Get a jump on a medical career and get to show his talent on the largest stage. There are very few Universities he couldn't help.

True Boulder. Win win for Marvin. He graduates with a double major in bio and chem (he redshirted his freshman year), and signs with the NFL now, or he gets another free year of education at UNC Med School and then another hard look from the NFL after that year as kicker/punter for UNC.
