Can an Average Guy Beat an NFL Kicker in a Field Goal Competition? | Above Average Joe | GQ Sports


NFL kickers might get more hate from fans than any other football players. But how hard is their job? Average guy Clay Skipper grew up hating on his beloved New York Jets' kickers, so we challenged him to master field goals and then go head to head with former Jets kicker, Chandler Catanzaro. With the help of Baltimore Ravens kicking legend Justin Tucker and kicking coach Luke Gaddis, does Clay have what it takes to beat an NFL kicker?

    Hardest thing for a good soccer player to transfer to kicking is NOT being over the top of the ball. You have to undo all of your learned behavior, and try to sky it over the bar

    Skipper needs to have a snap and hold to realize how hard kicking a field goal can be. Add that the ball has to clear the line at 9 feet or more and it's way harder than it looks.

    Years ago some guy was randomly selected by Wendy's to kick a series of field goals during half-time at a CFL game.Prize was 1 million dollars if he made every attempt. He made every attempt at increasing yardage until he squared up at the 50 yard line. He then put it right between the goalposts and the crowd went nutty. Even the players were swarming the guy. Turns out he was a semi-pro soccer player who was coached before the game by the pro kicker. Everyone got a kick out of the story (see what I did there?) until Wendy's refused to pay out. I'm not certain, but I think both parties agreed to an annual pay of something like 25 grand.

    I have respect for any kicker. It indeed is harder than one would think. I remember in the early 80's, that dang 20 ft. fence beyond the goal. Sarah Scott field. I'd have to jog all the way off the field, a crossed the track to the gate and go a crossed the street to fetch the ball when practicing alone. Lol. It was jr. high and I was hitting 30 yarders. Too bad I got hurt. Healed up and did ok, then I just had to hit one more. Threw it out again and it was over. But anyway, hats off to ANY kicker. It is hard.

    Anyone that thinks they can hit a field goal. Go to a golf course and try and hit every fairway and hit it over 250 yards. PGA Tour average fairways hit (last season) was just over 58% and these are professionals! Kickers have one of the hardest jobs in all of sports!

    In college my school’s kicker was so bad a friend and I (both HS soccer players) convinced ourselves we could walk on the next season. We bought a tee and some balls, tried for like two weeks and only managed to make a couple 40 yarders with the ball never clearing the crossbar by more than 2-3 yards. All that abuse also hurts your feet!
