After reports that Florida State kicker Ricky Aguayo had been jumped last year at a frat house, video of the incident has now emerged via TMZ.

The video appears to show Aguayo trading punches with an unidentified frat member several times as bystanders cheer both guys on. Once the fight was initially broken up, the frat brothers continued to taunt Aguayo, at which point Florida State tight end Ryan Izzo got involved to completely end the scuffle.
According to Tallahassee.com, Aguayo says he was “jumped” in the Dec. 2, 2016 incident over missed field goals in the Seminoles’ 31-13 victory over Florida. The video provided by TMZ doesn’t show exactly what led to the fight, as Aguayo was already squared up in a fighting stance with a frat member at the time it starts.
The story emerges in a slew of documents obtained in public records requests after a fraternity pledge died at an off-campus party.
Aguayo connected on 51 of 52 extra points last season, and 19 of 26 field goal attempts. This year, he’s hit on 33 of 33 extra point attempts and 15 of 18 field goals, good for 83 percent of his attempts.
Ricky is the younger brother of Roberto Aguayo, a a former second-round draft pick in 2016 who was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a disappointing rookie season and offseason. The former Florida State standout went 22-of-31 on field goal attempts and missed two extra points last season.
Roberto Aguayo was waived by Tampa Bay on Aug. 12 and claimed off waivers by the Chicago Bears one day later. However, he was once again placed on waivers on Sept. 2, prior to Chicago’s first regular season game. He was signed to the Carolina Panthers practice squad in October.
