Senior Garoutte gets a leg up with All-Arizona selection

The Arizona Republic named Alex Garoutte ’10 to the All-Arizona football team Dec. 27 for his performance as kicker in the 2009 season.

A 50-yard kick is a major feat for even an NFL kicker. Three kicks longer than 50 yards over the course of a season for a high school player is just as remarkable, if not more.

According to azcentral.com, Garoutte made 15 field goals last year, three of which were 50 yards or greater. He missed just six kicks, all of which came from beyond 50 yards in the regular season.
