Longtime Texas Longhorns placekicker Cameron Dicker has accepted an invitation to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl, the team announced on its official Twitter account Tuesday. The Senior Bowl will take place on Saturday, Feb. 5 in Mobile, Alabama.

Dicker, who recently finished his fourth season playing for Texas, announced on Jan. 19 that he was declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft and wouldn’t be returning to Austin for a fifth season. He made the news public with a statement released by the UT program.

“Words cannot express how thankful I am for Longhorn Football, The University of Texas, and the City of Austin,” Dicker wrote. “To my coaches, professors, teammates, and fans, thank you for your support. There is nothing like the pride and loyalty of The University of Texas and of being a Longhorn.

“The Forty Acres has given me so much more than a college football career and one of the best educations in the nation, it has given me an extended family that bleeds Burnt Orange.”

Dicker finishes his college career after making 60-of-79 field goals and 206-of-210 extra points. For the 2021 season, Dicker made 13-of-15 field goals and 49-of-50 PATs. Over his time with the Longhorns, Dicker scored 386 total points.

An Austin native, Dicker was a three-star recruit coming out of Lake Travis High School.
