Eddy Pineiro, a kicker at Florida, smokes an 81 yard field goal in practice
An 81-yard field goal anytime is an awesome feat, Eddy Pineiro hits one in practice getting ready for the college season to start
I think I’ve written this enough times now that I’m a huge kicker guy. Eddy Pineiro of Florida, is really flashing some leg in practice with a huge 81-yard field goal. I love everything there is about being a kicker. The pressures, the concentration needed, and the watching the yipps that some of these guys can get in their career. It has to be the hardest and also must under appreciated job in sports. Every other position on the football field makes fun of these guys but they score the most amount of points and can win you games.
I think the best way you can insert yourself into the team as a kicker is def a couple of things.
One, get a bunch of tattoos. I feel like if you get covered in tattoos from head to toe, we are talking full sleeves and hell why not even a neck tattoo, can get you a lot of credibility with the offensive line. If you get those guys on your side then you should be able to get the whole team on your side.
Two lay someone out in a game. There is a good chance being a kicker means you aren’t the most athletic guy on the field. At one point in your career, you will have that oh shit!! moment during a kick off where that returner gets straight thru untouched. Now whatever you do don’t whiff. This is your one time to shine. Act like you know what you are doing and lay the boomstick on the guy. Should get you all the credit you need with the defense.
I know this is in practice so don’t come back at me with that but Eddy Pineiro has one hell of a leg. This one tape might have punched his ticket to get drafted next season.
