FLAGSTAFF — With the FCS football season in the books, Northern Arizona junior placekicker Luis Aguilar picked up his sixth All-American honor on Wednesday with his selection to the Athlon Sports FCS Postseason All-America Team.

His Athlon Sports honor joins a list that includes All-American distinction from HERO Sports, The Associated Press, FCS ADA, STATS FCS and Walter Camp since season’s end. Aguilar was also honored as the 2019 Fred Mitchell Award recipient as the nation’s top placekicker in the FCS, Division II, Division III, NAIA and NJCAA back in December.

Aguilar’s 57-yard field goal against Northern Colorado on Oct. 5 was the longest in the FCS this season and in all, he was 22-of-25 on field goal attempts. The Nogales, Ariz. native made all 52 of his extra point attempts and led the country with 61 kickoffs that resulted in touchbacks.
