RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — It's impressive enough that Ridgewood's Younghoe Koo can kick the football 40 yards or more down the line.

And then the Ridgewood High School graduate follows it up with a back flip.

The Georgia Southern junior kicker's trick-shots are gaining national attention.

Koo and two other college place-kickers across the U.S. are up for the Lou Groza Award.

The three athletes will be featured during ESPNU's college football awards nomination show on Tuesday at 5 p.m., and the winner will be announced on Dec. 8 at 7 p.m., during The Home Depot College Football Awards Show
