DURHAM, N.C. – Duke kicker Ross Martin has picked up a pair of Freshman All-America citations, earning first team honors from Sporting News and CBSCollegeSports.com, announced this week by the respective outlets.
 
A native of Solon, Ohio, Martin has put together the finest placekicking season in school history by totaling 98 points by making 18-of-20 field goals and all 44 of his PAT attempts.  With one game remaining, he has already set the school single-season record for PATs, betting Robert Gantt’s previous Duke standard of 41 in 1943.
 
The 98 points rank as the second-highest single-season total in school history, trailing only Clarkson Hines’ total of 104 in 1989, while the 18 field goals also rank second on Duke’s single-season chart, trailing only Will Snyderwine’s total of 21 in 2010.
 
Martin owns school freshman records for points in a game (15 vs. North Carolina), points in a season (98), field goals in a game (4 vs. North Carolina), field goals in a season (18), longest field goal (50 yards vs. Georgia Tech) and PATs in a season (44).
 
Martin becomes just the seventh Duke player to earn first team Freshman All-America accolades, joining running back Tony Benjamin (Football News; 1973), linebacker Carl McGee (Football News; 1975), linebacker Michael Tauiliili (Sporting News; 2005), offensive tackle Kyle Hill (Sporting News; 2008), wide receiver Conner Vernon (Sporting News; 2009) and offensive guard Laken Tomlinson (Sporting News; 2011).
 
Duke will face Cincinnati in the Belk Bowl on December 27, 2012 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.  Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m., and tickets are available at GoDuke.com.
