Player Overview

A 2013 consensus All-American, Fera played two seasons in Austin after transferring from Penn State due to his desire to be closer to his family. He earned several accolades as a member of the Big Ten but battled injuries as a junior in 2012, his first season with Texas.

Fera rebounded with a strong senior season, serving as both the place-kicker and punter for the Longhorns. He connected on 90.9% (20-for-22) of his field goals and averaged 40.7 yards per punt in 2013, becoming the first Lou Groza Award finalist in school history.

Fera has a 83.7% field goal percentage for his career (36-for-43) and is 96.7% (88-for-91) on extra points.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Versatile experience, handling the punting, kickoff and place-kicking duties most of his career. Athletic and controlled striker with flexibility and natural bend to elevate his kicks and create proper trajectory. Mentally tough. Steady and consistent, set a school-record with 15 straight field goals made in 2013. Technically-sound with easy movements.

WEAKNESSES: Lacks a power leg and probably won't be kicking off at the next level with his marginal lower body strength - only 19 touchbacks on 49 kicks in 2013. Wasn't asked to be long-yard kicker with only one attempt of 50-yards or farther last season. Needs to improve his transition quickness and his directional punting.

12/13/2013 - 2013 WALTER CAMP FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: PK Anthony Fera, Texas, 6-2 208, Sr., Cypress, TX...After connecting on 20 of 22 field goals this season, Fera is also just the second Texas place-kicker to make the Walter Camp All-America Team, along with Russell Erxleben in 1978. He's also just the fourth specialist, punter or kicker to make first team All-America (also Erxleben, Ward, and PK Happy Feller - Sporting News in 1970).

A Lou Groza Award finalist, Fera matched Phil Dawson's school record with 15 consecutive field goals made this season. The senior has kicked in big moments all year, connecting on 14 of 15 attempts when the score was within seven points and 6 of 7 in three-point games. - Texas football
