The NFL record is 63 yards.

The High School record is 68 yards.

Would've been good from 69. And I bet his girlfriend said the same thing last night.

Nadie_AZ: My record is 12 yards.


The last time I tried was in 1974, and I could put it through from over 25 yards out, toe-first old-school style.

Normally I'm annoyed when the linked video is to a news site that adds some unnecessary commentary rather than directly to the video. In this case though, it was acceptable.

It's impressive, don't get me wrong, but the defense wasn't putting up any pressure and the kicker was able to get a desirable trajectory.

Watch again, that wasn't some low line drive kick that would have been blocked at the line in the NFL. This kid has a farking cannon of a leg.

Getting a desirable trajectory is kinda one of the key factors in any successful field goal.

Field goals are way harder in the NFL, though. A lot better blockers, which means lower trajectories (mandatory for longer field goals) are harder to be successful with.

Still very impressive, though, but there is a reason there hasn't been a FG from longer than 63. I doubt there will ever be a longer than 65 yard FG in the NFL that isn't a free kick.

Hey, I went to Central Valley High school back in the late 80's until I got caught smoking weed behind the gym.Their football team sucked then.

Don't get too excited; it's just a NES emulator for phones. But yes, you can. It's a bit trickier than when you have a proper controller, though.

Came for Tom Dempsey and his club foot - was getting nervous that it wasn't here - but now leaves satisfied! Thanks.

Might just be half a foot, but he could still put it so far up your ass your children would be legally required to carry his name.

No, they usually house abnormally warm pieces of clothing while waiting for incredibly large men to come back after games and say trite statements about teamwork and "wanting it more."

Yep. When Elam tied the record he said two thirds of the kickers in the NFL could do it if they got the chance. And there's all sorts of stories about Janikowski hitting just ungodly long FGs in practice or warm ups.

when i was 15, me and two other guys were the first freshman to start on the varsity soccer team(1986). i was asked to try out as kicker for the football team. i hit (2) 65 yard field goals, hand held, turned down the chance. 2 months later was delivery pizzas and a drop out. i didn't get my drivers license til april of 87.

/delivering pizza in an '84 supra. sweet
// 1 month before i got my DL i got and '86 MR-2.

I do agree that the record is a bit weaksauce because not too many coaches and scenarios will give a kicker that chance. Nevertheless, a record is a record, just as a W is a W, no matter the circumstances.

Also, there is a difference between kicking in practice and in a game, just as there is a difference between guessing all the questions on Jeopardy while watching at home, but choking on the actual show.

/as a Saints fan, I will be gracious when this one is broken...but still sad for both Demps and Elam. Kickers don't get much glory but they get all the hate

yeah, figure end of a half, ball in the right place is about the only chance for it. Can't think of any coach who'd go for a 64 or 65 yard field goal on a fourth down in the middle of a quarter.
