Georgia Tech commit Joseph Bulovas had a near perfect day at Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, where the senior kicker from Mandeville, La. was 2-for-3 in field goals and 3-for-3 in extra points.

Bulovas’ only missed field-goal attempt was from 27 yards with 3:59 remaining in the fourth quarter when defensive back Bubba Bolden jumped over two linemen and kicked the ball off the tee before Bulovas could kick. Bolden chased down the loose ball, picked it up and took to the end zone for a touchdown. That narrowed the East team’s lead 27-16.

Bulovas’ other field goals came from a 49-yard field goal in the third quarter and a 34-yard field goal, which increasing the East team’s lead 17-3 to end the first half.

Bulovas, a 6-foot, 205-pound senior, was 3-for-3 in extra points after the East team scored on a 4-yard touchdown run by running back Cam Akers with 6:46 left in the third quarter. The East team scored their second touchdown of the day off a 76-yard touchdown reception from wide receiver DJ Matthews with 1:52 remaining in the first half. Matthews caught the pass off a throw by Georgia commit quarterback Jake Fromm.

Bulovas, a three-star kicker, added the first extra point of the game after quarterback Hunter Johnson threw a 61-yard pass on third-and-10 to wide receiver Henry Ruggs with less than seven minutes remaining in the first half.
