Classroom

Dominik Eberle has taken full advantage of his scholarship at Utah State and has excelled in the classroom, just as he has on the field. Eberle is a two-time academic All-Mountain West selection and is on track to graduate from USU this academic year with his bachelor’s degree.

Character

A team captain, Eberle is a tremendous individual who recognizes that his individual successes and recognition would not be possible without his teammates. He is always deflecting individual praise toward his teammates and coaches. He has an infectious personality and does a great job of letting others into his world and making them feel important.
“Dominik is a tremendous young man who exemplifies what it means to be an Aggie, both on and off the field. He is a very productive player on the field and is equally as productive in the classroom and community. He is a selfless person when it comes to community service and is one of the most active kids on the team when it comes to working with the youth of Cache Valley. Dominik is an outstanding teammate who is respected by everyone in the locker room.” - Special Teams Coordinator Stacy Collins

Community

Eberle understands the importance of giving back to the campus and community and spends countless hours volunteering to work with youth and other organizations with causes that he supports. He has volunteered with the following organizations and events: Athletic Council Gender and Minorities Subcommittee; Student-Athlete Advisory Council; Sexual Assault Task Force; USU Football Youth Clinics; USU Football Women’s Clinic; USU Football Family Fun Day; Logan Pioneer Day Parade and USU Football Captain’s Council. He also has been an elementary school guest speaker.

Competition

Without question, Eberle is one of the best placekickers in the nation, and his accolades reflect it. A preseason fourth-team All American by Athlon Sports, he holds numerous single-season school records and is on the verge of breaking several career records at Utah State. He also tied two NCAA single-game records last year. He tied the NCAA record for points scored in a game by a kicker with 24 and tied an NCAA record with his three 51-yard field goals against New Mexico State (9/8/18), becoming just the sixth player ever to kick three 50-plus yard field goals in a game. In all, Eberle made field goals from 44, 32, 51, 21, 51 and 51 yards against NMSU, as those six made field goals are tied for the third-most in a single-game in NCAA history.

Eberle takes great pride in being a placekicker and is dedicated to improving on his impressive numbers for each of the two previous seasons. He was an All-Mountain West Honorable Mention selection last year as well as a third-team All-Mountain West pick by Phil Steele and a Lou Groza Award Semifinalist.

In 2017, Eberle earned All-Mountain West First Team, Phil Steele’s Magazine third-team All-America and SB Nation honorable mention All-America honors and was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award.
