The trick shot video was born when quarterbacks like Johnny McEntee (former UConn quarterback) and Alex Tanney (from D-III Monmouth) took the internet by storm a few years ago. The trend has helped make the guys at Dude Perfect pop culture sensations, and every trick shot video to come out since has captivated a nation of sports fanatics.
This morning this video was sent to us (from an unidentified high school) and it might be the most impressive trick shot I have ever seen...and it comes from a kicker.
Notice that the ball starts flat on the ground, the kicker uses his feet to give it some spin, and then punches a thirty yard field goal (give or take some distance). Very impressive.
We all know how hard specialists work during spring ball, but it would be great to get a submission of one of your guys who can duplicate this. Challenge issued.
UPDATE >> Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee (who has tied the NFL record for 50+ yard field goals in a season with 3) issued a rather direct response to our challenge. His rebuttal can be seen below the clip.
UPDATE 2 >>South Carolina holder / punter Patrick Fish accomplished the trick-kick last year. See the video at the bottom of the page.
