College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) announces the 2014 CFPA Placekicker Trophy Watch List. The initial watch list includes 40 placekickers from the Football Bowl Subdivision. All players are eligible for awards at their respective positions; players are not preemptively eliminated from consideration.

The 2014 CFPA Placekicker Trophy Watch List is one of eleven preseason watch lists for the Football Bowl Subdivision. The 2014 CFPA All-Purpose Performer of the Year Trophy Watch List and 2014 CFPA National Freshman Performer of the Year Trophy Watch List will be released during the season.

Last season, Florida State's Roberto Aguayo earned the 2013 CFPA Placekicker Trophy. Other winners at placekicker include: Cairo Santos (Tulane), Randy Bullock (Texas A&M), Caleb Sturgis (Florida), Alex Henery (Nebraska), and Blair Walsh (Georgia). Winners of the CFPA Specialist Trophy for overall kicking performance include: Anthony Fera (Texas), Brandon McManus (Temple), Dustin Hopkins (Florida State), Adi Kunalic (Nebraska), David Buehler (USC), and two-time winner Quinn Sharp (Oklahoma State).

"I have been associated with the CFPA since 2008, which has been tracking player performance and team performance through their indices," said Davidson College professor Paul Studtmann. "I want to take this opportunity to wish all the teams and players great success this season."
