Marcus Aurelius: 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.

I bet I could kick a football over them mountains.

OK, here we go.

OHPLEASEOHPLEASEOHPLEASEOHPLEASE coaching staff at UT pay attention to this kid and recruit him. Pay him whatever you're paying Cordarrelle Patterson right now and sign this kid.

In practice one day I kicked a perfect spiral punt that landed exactly 70 yards away.
I have no idea how I nailed it and I never, ever came close again.

And speaking of nailing....damn, miss talking head lady....

There are so many more high school games, I'm surprised they haven't played one on a really windy day where somebody hit one 70+ yards.

Pfft. I've seen a mule that could kick a 99-yarder.

VvonderJesus: 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.



The defense wasn't trying for a block. They were playing for the return. Thats why they had a return man standing in the end zone. Why attempt to return it when you can take over on the 43? Who knows.

ATRDCI: Greg Zuerlin would disagree

/and he's a rookie to boot


Nah, that still isn't past 65 yards. The longer the kick, the lower the trajectory, which means it is a lot more likely to get blocked. That is why teams rarely kick from beyond 60 yards, unless its the end of the half or game.

WhyteRaven74: machoprogrammer: I doubt there will ever be a longer than 65 yard FG in the NFL that isn't a free kick.

Zuerlin will kick it from farther out, just needs the chance


It is definitely doable, but very few coaches would risk it due to the likelyhood of it being blocked. Any NFL kicker can make them from beyond 65, but the chances of a block past 60 is lot higher (plus, if you miss, good field position for the other team). The longer the kick, the lower the kick's trajectory. There is a reason why teams don't take many 60+ yard chances, even at end of the half.

Didn't watch football last weekend? Wide from 66 yards... with 2 or 3 yards to spar easy.

I didn't watch that game, actually. Oh wow, that is impressive. I still don't see many coaches taking a chance at that distance, even with the really strong legs of today. Seabass, Crosby, Akers, Zuerlin among others all have the leg strength to do it, but it's pretty risky unless its the end of a half. And even then, you gotta worry about a block.

Relatively Obscure: marius2: Relatively Obscure: Nadie_AZ: My record is 12 yards.

I kicked a pretty sweet field goal in Tecmo Super Bowl on my phone the other day.

Hold on Mister, Tecmo Super Bowl? On a phone?

Can you zig zag and run every decent pass into a touchdown?

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.


If you want to get a GameKlip and you can attach a controller to your phone for easier play.

Haven't read the entire thread but in high school you kick off of a tee, so the records are longer. I blocked for the other 67 yard kick in school. Promise. He couldn't even come close in college. The tee makes a huge difference. Think about all the guys in the pros that kick out the back of the end zone on a kick off but can't even come close on a field goal. Still really cool.
 
2012-10-20 07:19:40 PM
Wait, didn't see our 67 on that list but I swear it was, odd. Huh. Must be fairly common. Makes sense , as many high school football games as there are going on at any given Friday night in the fall.

/BTW, it's pronounced SHAY-dle Park High School, not SHAD-el like the newscaster said.

I was mildly surprised they pronounced Spokane correctly

dickfreckle: WhyteRaven74: NaughtyByNurture: Don't NFL lockers regularly make them from 65+ during warm up?

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.

Kickers don't get much glory but they get all the hate


never understood this mentality or why people feel that way. I really cannot think of a time a kicker lost a game. ever.

Common scenario: team is down by two and within FG range. Run a few plays to try and get a TD. Doesn't happen, so bring out the kicker. Kicker misses. Recap from the game: "The kicker lost the game."

BS. The kicker did nothing to cause the team to be down two points before he walked on the field. The team was losing before the kick and were still losing after the kick. The kicker had a chance to save the rest of the sorry team from losing, but he alone, did not lose the game. The other 54 people did that all on their own. Kickers give you a chance to win a game, they are never the reason the team lost.

You can see the tee in the kicker's hand during the celebration.

Amazing job though even with a tee.
