Player Profile: Michael Badgley

The junior kicker performed well this season converting 21 field goal attempts

NCAA Football: Miami at Notre Dame Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Michael Badgley has made 60 field goals throughout his career at Miami, this past season he converted 21 of those. The junior kicker made 80.1 percent of his field goal tries this season, only missing five attempts.

Badgley scored 116 points this season, improving on his 2015 campaign by a point. His longest field goal of the season was a 51 yard strike against Florida State, but most Miami fans won’t remember that. Instead, what they will remember is the crucial missed extra point that could have sent the game into overtime.

That moment probably qualifies as his season lowest moment of the season, although the snap wasn’t perfect and neither was the blocking. (If you like torturing yourself, you can watch it below at the 1:40 mark.)

Badgley also had some stellar performances this season, and the most notable one probably came against Duke, when he converted on all four field goal tries.

From 40 to 49 yards, Badgley was one of the best in the nation, converting on all nine attempts.

In terms of next season, Miami fans know what to expect. He will most likely continue to be consistent, and he could see a spike in field goals attempted compared to this past season. It all depends on how the offense executes next season, with a new quarterback leading the way.
