Jackson native Grant Ressel battling to remain Mizzou starter

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Former Jackson Indian Grant Ressel, the one time All-American kicker at Mizzou, now finds himself in a battle to remain the starter.

Ressel and junior Trey Barrow are now listed at the top of the Missouri Tigers depth chart. Ressel has struggled this season making only seven of thirteen field goals (he's missed four of his last five).

The drop off has been staggering after Grant missed only three his first two seasons in Columbia (making 43 of 46).

"I think first of all he is a great kid and he's been through a difficult time", said head coach Gary Pinkel. "He hasn't fixed it yet and we'll deal with him internally."
