It's patently absurd that the NFL record for longest field goal continues to stand at 63 yards.
I have little doubt all 32 starting kickers in the NFL can break the record given a couple shots at it. The problem is most kickers never get the opportunity. You coaches with your "field position" theories.
My theory gains more traction with the exploits of a young man by the name of Austin Rehkow, a kicker at Central Valley High in Spokane, Wash., Rehkow booted a 67-yard field goal Thursday night. That's right -- a high school senior obliterated a 42-year-old NFL record.
The craziest part? Rehkow doesn't even own the high school mark. Some Duran Duran fan drilled a 68-yarder back in '85, according to MaxPreps.com.
In any event, congrats, Austin. That should secure you a homecoming date.
