According to Tallahassee.com, Florida State kicker Ricky Aguayo was “jumped” and punched in the face over missed field goals in the Seminoles’ 31-13 victory over Florida in 2016.
According to the report, Aguayo was walking by the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house at about 3 a.m. when people allegedly yelled at him about his performance (he had missed two of three field goals in the game).
“He said they were giving him a hard time about missed field goals during the Florida game,” officers wrote in their report. “He said he was rushed by several of the members of the fraternity…and was punched in the face.”
Aguayo had blood on his face and shirt, according to the report, and tight end Ryan Izzo was called to help him get home.
The story emerges in a slew of documents obtained in public records requests after a fraternity pledge died at an off-campus party.
Ricky 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.
