INDIANAPOLIS – Sophomore kicker Brent Wahle (Pataskala, Ohio) was honored by the NCAA as the national leader in field goals made per game in Division II for the 2013 season.
Wahle, who will receive a plaque for his accomplishment, made 21 field goals in 11 games for the Panthers in 2013. Nineteen of those kicks came in GLIAC games, setting a conference record for most makes.
Following the season, Wahle was named an AP All-American and BSN All-American, as well as First Team All-GLIAC and to the Don Hansen All-Region team.
Wahle drilled five kicks of 45 yards or longer and also set a school-record with a 51-yard field goal. He's made 31 field goals in his career, which is already a school-record, and he also holds the school-record for most points scored with 195.
He was twice named the GLIAC Special Teams Player of the Week and had a pair of four field goal games in wins over Walsh and Tiffin.
Wahle's success wasn't limited to the football field, though, as he was also a First Team All-GLIAC selection in soccer. He led the Panthers with seven goals and was an NSCAA Midwest Region First Team and Daktronics Midwest Region First Team honoree.
