Marshall Meeder announces his intent to enter transfer portal

Marshall Meeder, the Chippewas kicker for the past three years, announced that he will be entering the transfer portal in May with two years of eligibility remaining. 

The Eaton Rapids native announced his decision on Sunday via Instagram.  


In his three years repping the maroon and gold uniform, Meeder played in 29 games and converted 30 of his 45 field goal attempts with a long of 53 yards.

In 2021, Meeder converted 49 of 51 extra-point attempts and 17 of his 26 field goals. His 17 field goals tied for the second most in CMU football program history. 

Meeder was named to The Athletics Freshman All-American team and was named to the All-MAC first team by Pro Football Focus and Phil Steele. He made all eight of his field goal attempts and 16 of 17 extra-point attempts as a freshman. His career-best 53-yarder came in his freshman year against Toledo which was recorded as the longest field goal by a MAC kicker in 2020.
