Casa Grande High School picked up their first win of the season last week and the Cougars’ two-star kicker commit was a big part of it. In the 47-0 shellacking of Ukiah, Abramo nailed both of his field goal attempts – with a long of 46-yards – and was 3-of-3 on point after attempts. Abramo punted once for 53 yards and sent six of his eight kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks.

For the season, Abramo is 7-of-7 on Points After Touchdown (PATs) and 4-of-5 on field goals with a long of 46-yards. Abramo has also hit a 45-yard field goal this season and is averaging 34.2 yards per punt with 11 pinned down inside the 20 on 31 attempts. Abramo has also sent 14-of-19 kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks.

Last week: A week of rest didn’t help Casa Grande on Friday night as they saw their record drop to 0-5 after a tough 27-7 loss to Windsor last week. Abramo was 1-for-1 on point after attempts and did not attempt a field goal. He did, however, pin two of his six punts inside the Windsor 20 yard line – with a long of 47 yards – and averaged 34.2 yards per punt. Both of Abramo’s kickoffs were touchbacks.
