See HS kid kick a 67 yd field goal. Longer than the NFL record.

Amazing.

They had a 65 yarder in the NFL, but it was preseason.

Good kick!

Are the footballs in HS the same as in the NFL?

That's only #2 for highschool. Someone help me figure out wtf highschool kickers have several over the NFL record? The NCAA record seems to be the longest at 69 yards. I guess maybe they just don't try those long kicks as often in NFL?

Not to take anything away from a 67 yard kick, but...

did you see how freaking tall that kid is? I'm guessing he is probably larger than the average NFL kicker. So while not providing him a huge advantage, the players standing in front of him being inches shorter than NFL players does matter a lot.

Trajectory. NFL kickers hit 70+ in practice all the time with no one trying to block it.

I think I figured it out. Most high schools use open ended fields. Better air flow through there to catch more wind than a closed stadium or bowl like they use in NFL.

Not trying to take anything away from the kid, it's an awesome kick. It just didn't make sense to me how highschool kickers have several records above NFL, that wasn't just a fluke.

I didn't think about that. Good point.

I have done work for at least 5 players of the N.O. Saints, and know 1 personally...that boy would look up to 95% of the NFL players. The shortest you're gonna see is a RB, and they are usually at least 5' 11" and built like a brick ****house.

My reasons for why longer FGs in HS than NFL - many of which already pointed out:
1. Frequency - there are only 32 nfl teams. How many high school teams equating to how many more attempted long field goals?
2. Tee
3. Ball
4. Height of defenders

Uh, and?

He is bigger than at least 2/3 of NFL kickers. You pointing out how big NFL players are after I just said that does nothing but help prove my point

He is friggin huge and he's playing against stumpy kids trying to block his kick.

I agree the tee is a big advantage but still, that's a long way to kick a ball. I was a punter/kicker in high school and only dreamed of kicking a ball that far and I'm 6'2" 200 lbs.

I forget which superbowl, but the kicker warming up was drilling em from the 50 yd line over and over again. Forget which team. But it was important to know that the guy could go long.

I think it's more of a game-tying/winning opportunity, so you see so few of them. As mentioned, only 32 teams. How many times per season are we down to a game with less than 3 points difference, the losing team holding the ball, and time running out? Pretty infrequently.

I don't think they use a tee (the kicking flat) in college. I also think the goalposts are wider in high school than college or the pros.

Different ball
Different defensive lineman size which allows for a low trajectory.

Yep...high school has an extra 5 feet of width to work with compared to college or pro.

That is very considerate but it looks like he damn near split the uprights in this case. Kudos to the guy.

Not to take anything from him also, just because he did one time doesn't mean he'll repeat. However if he does, he's got a college scholarship locked up
I really hope he takes care of his self and not do anything utterly stupid, he may have a bright future ahead of himself.

I see the logic in 1-3, but #4... care to elaborate how this effects a kick?

Starting a kick at a lower angle generally gives more distance. So shorter defenders with lower reach allow a lower angle w/o getting blocked.
