Alex Henery - A Philadelphia Eagle!

Accuracy 

Henery finished his college career as the most accurate kicker in the history of NCAA football.

He was selected as a first-team All-American by the AP, Rivals.com, CBSSports.com, and SI.com last season.

He set Nebraska school records for career scoring (397 points), most consecutive made field goals (18, broken vs Missouri, 2010), most field goals in a season (24 in 2009), most field goals in a career (68), and the longest field goal in school history (57 yards versus Colorado in 2008).

Henery was perfect on PATs in 2010, and ended his college career with 116 straight made extra points.

Why the hell Alex Henery never won a Lou Groza Award is beyond anyone's ability to answer. 

Versatility 

Henery pulled double-duty as Nebraska's punter the past two seasons. It isn't his punting average that you should be excited about. It's his accuracy! Oh, where have you heard that before?

In 2009, Henery lead the Big 12 conference with 30 punts inside the 20, including eight (!) inside the three-yard line. Henery averaged 42.2 yards on his 147 career punts, including 57 downed inside the 20.

In the highlights below, you'll see a 77-yard punt that comes while Henery is on the run and punts the ball soccer style.
