'Class act' Aguayo returns to South Lake

BY foxsports • August 2, 2015

Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo returned to his home town of South Lake, Fla., on Saturday and received a warm welcome from the community.

Aguayo, a redshirt junior and former Lou Graza Award winner, held court at the Puryear Building and spoke about his rise to stardom, fielded questions from the fans and signed autographs.

"He's a class act," 78-year-old Bill Eyerly told the Orlando Sentinel. "He's kind of what it's supposed to be all about."

Aguayo told the crowd that he considered declaring for the NFL Draft after last season, but was persuaded to return to FSU and get his degree by coach Jimbo Fisher. The star kicker is set to graduate in December with a degree in criminality and a minor in psychology.

"He's quality," Mary Helen Myers, 70, told the Orlando Sentinel. "He's good on the inside. We're proud of that, and he is from our hometown."
