BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU finished 2020 with a 5-5 record and without kicker Cade York, the Tigers might have lost to Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Florida to finish 2-8.

LSU wouldn’t trade York for any kicker in the country. His school-record 57-yard field goal through the Gainesville fog to beat No. 6 Florida will live on for years to come.

LSU kicker Cade York talks about fall camp.

York actually hit six field goals that were 50 yards or longer last season, another LSU record. Overall, he was 18-of-21, which is nearly 86%. The challenge now is to somehow improve.

Even when you’re a kicker as good as York, you can hear it from your teammates, “Oh, those kickers, they don’t even do anything at practice.”
