Former Cassville Wildcat Aaron Jamieson set a new University of Central Missouri scoring record for a kicker during a nationally televised game against Truman State University on Thursday, Sept. 20.

Jamieson, a senior, tied the scoring mark with a 48-yard field goal in the third quarter to put the Mules up 31-10. He broke the record with a PAT kick three minutes later.

Jamieson has also been named to the MIAA Academic Honor Roll and is a finalist for the Fred Mitchell Outstanding Placekicker Award.

The award is named for Fred Mitchell, who was a record-setting place-kicker, Wittenberg University Athletic Hall of Famer, author, philanthropist and Chicago Tribune sports columnist.

The award is given annually to a placekicker from the Football Championship Subdivision, Division II, III, NAIA or NJCAA for their on-field performance as well as their community service.

The award winner will be announced in December.

Jamieson is one of only 11 Division II kickers to be named to the watch list.

Jamieson gained national prominence last season when he booted a school-record 53-yard field goal against Missouri Western. He is also Central Missouri's career leader in PATs.

He is the son of Terry and Jill Jamieson, of Cassville.
