Congratulations to Graham for recently signing with the Washington Redskins organization! "I'm really excited," Gano told Florida's Pensacola News-Journal. "I couldn't be any happier knowing that I'm with an NFL team. I'm ready to get up there and compete." Gano was signed by the Redskins after they released former placekicker Shaun Suisham, and has been given the starting placekicker position.
Welcome to Graham Gano’s unofficial site; home of the best placekicker in college football and now NFL placekicker for the Washington Redskins. While playing for Florida State University from 2005 to 2008, he managed to become the first player in history to handle all of the kicking duties during his senior year. As a senior Graham was awarded the nation's top honor for a placekicker when he won the Lou Groza Award, making 24 of 26 field goals, while leading the nation in field goals per game (2.18) and leading all kickers scoring 9.55 points a game. He was presented the trophy live on The Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show.
Graham kicked his first field goal as a Washington Redskin, December 2009 against the Oakland Radiers, and was 2/2 (both FGs 40+ yards) and 4/4 in PATs.
