High School Kicker Kicks 67 Yard Field Goal to Send Team to OT [VIDEO]
A Washington State High Schooler has kicked a state-record 67 yard field goal. The long boot is even longer than the NFL record length for a field goal which stands at 63 yards. What's even greater, is that this kick was at the end of the game to send his team to over-time. Talk about pressure! The kick sent Central Valley High into OT by tying the game at 55. They would go on to win in over-time.
Austin Rehkow now has the state record but reportedly has no scholarship offers yet.
Rehkow claims he never even hit a 63 yarder in practice. Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam, Sebastian Janikowski and most recently David Akers have all booted it true from 63 yards in an NFL game.
The national record is a 68 yard field goal kicked in 1985.
