  Anders Carlson's 2019 campaign wasn't as consistent as he had hoped, but the high note he finished on has given him confidence heading into his redshirt-junior season. The Auburn place-kicker finished last season second to last in the SEC in field goal accuracy, connecting on just 72 percent (18-of-25) of his tries, but he closed the year by making each of his final six attempts, including a 4-for-4 effort in the Iron Bowl. It was a fitting redemptive arc for Carlson in what was an uneven season, as all seven of his misses in 2019 came from at least 42 yards out, but each of his four makes during the win against rival Alabama came from at least 43 yards out. "It's huge," Carlson said of the impact of his Iron Bowl performance on his own confidence. "Me as a player, you can kind of look at it going from season to season, but I kind of look at it from game-to-game learning. Your first year and even your first two years, you are learning a lot. I think throughout last season from Game 1 to game 12, I was a much different kicker in my mindset.

"I'm just carrying a simple mindset into the season like I did in the Iron Bowl. Just treating it like a game. In the offseason I got to think about it a lot and trying to do the same things going into this season. It's huge. I think mindset is everything. Mindset is what separates people." Now entering Year 3 as Auburn's starting kicker, Carlson hopes that mindset can lead to a more prosperous season for himself and the Tigers' special teams unit in what will undoubtedly be the most unconventional and potentially chaotic season imaginable, given the circumstances surrounding college football in America in 2020. - Birmingham News
