2007 Season

Did not play in 2007 transferring from Nebraska to USC to be closer to his family.

2006 Season

2005 First-Team Freshman All-American (Football Writers, Rivals.com, ESPN.com), 2005 First-Team Freshman All-Big 12 (The Sporting News), 2005 Second-Team All-Big 12 (AP, San Antonio Express News, Austin American-Statesman, Kansas City Star). Congdon had a standout freshman season, connecting on 19-of-23 field goals and 31-of-32 PATs en route to freshman All-America honors. Congdon immediately showed his ability, connecting on all four of his field goal attempts in Nebraska's season-opening victory over Maine. The four field goals were the most by a Big 12 player in 2005. His success continued throughout the fall. Congdon had a streak of 11 straight made field goals, and closed the season by hitting his final 31 extra-point attempts after missing the first of his career. In addition to his four field goals against Maine, Congdon made three field goals each against Baylor and Colorado. Congdon delivered when called upon in clutch situations, highlighted by a game-winning field goal in the victory over Kansas State. With the Huskers trailing 25-24 and winds gusting in excess of 35 miles per hour, Congdon calmly connected on a 40-yard field goal with 1:05 to play to give Nebraska a two-point victory over the Wildcats. Against Iowa State, Congdon made a game-tying kick in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime, then hit a pair of overtime extra points in a 27-20 Husker win. Congdon was nearly perfect in Big 12 games, hitting 13-of-15 field goals in league play, including connecting on 11 straight field goals before a fourth-quarter miss against Colorado. Congdon also shared Nebraska's kickoff duties, helping the Huskers rank among the league's best teams in kick coverage.

High School

Congdon was one of eight 2005 NU signees from California and one of seven players in the 2005 class to play in the U.S. Army All-America game in San Antonio. He was generally regarded as the nation's top kicking prospect in 2005.

Congdon equaled the section record for career points by kicking with 261 and matched the section best with nine consecutive field goals made. He also led the San Diego Section in kicking points three straight years. Congdon hit on 11-of-13 field goals as a senior for St. Augustine High and Coach Jerry Ralph, with a long field goal of 53 yards and three others of more than 40 yards. He booted 85 percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks and averaged 42.7 yards per punt, en route to earning All-San Diego section honors as both the kicker and punter from the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Congdon hit 7-of-10 field goals and 44-of-45 extra points as a junior and 15-of-18 field goals and 57-of-58 PATs as a sophomore. He earned first-team underclassmen all-state honors in both of his first two seasons kicking for St. Augustine, which won the Eastern League title and was a CIF Division 3 finalist in both 2002 and 2003. Congdon was a two-year starter and three-year letterman in soccer, and was a second-team all-league selection as a junior. Congdon was a standout in the classroom as well. He was the captain of the Union-Tribune's All-Academic Team in 2004, and carried better than a 4.0 grade-point average. He was also member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
