After missing a field goal vs. NC State, Ricky Aguayo has connected on ten straight field goals.
He chalks that up to a change in maturity.
“I just decided to grow up, stop making immature mistakes when I come in on the field,” the sophomore said. “Just staying true to the process, and saying a couple words in my head that remind me what to do. I have to trust that [Stephen] Gabbard is going to get it back there and [Jared] Jackson is going to hold it. All I have to do is kick it and make sure it goes through the upright.”
When asked about making changes to his approach, Aguayo talked about adjusting his mindset, citing Jimbo Fisher’s advice to “never get bored.”
“I would think, ‘maybe it’s this’ or ‘maybe it’s my plant foot,’ and I would always kid of miss with it, but now that I’ve found my happy medium and the balls are going in, I try to keep it that way,” he said.
