Lake Buena Vista, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Maryland's Brad Craddock is the winner of the 2014 Lou Groza Award, given annually to the country's top kicker.

Craddock, the first Terrapin to win the award and just third kicker in Big 10 history, went 18-of-19 on his field goal tries.

He also kicked a 57-yard field goal in a loss to Ohio State, the second- longest field goal in college football in 2014.

Other finalists were Florida State's Roberto Aguayo and West Virginia's Josh Lambert.

Aguayo, who was honored as the 2013 recipient for the Groza Award, made 25- of-27 field goal attempts this season. He was vying to become the second kicker in history to win the award twice, joining former Florida State kicker Sebastian Janikowski.

Lambert went 27-of-36 on his kicks, including a game-winning 55-yarder against Texas Tech.
