For those of you that say NFL punters and kickers are not athletes by any sense of the word, you might want to watch the below video featuring Indianapolis Colts kickoff specialist/punter Pat McAfee and change your stance on that.
McAfee shows off the power and strength of his leg by kicking field goals from the absolutely insane distances of 65 yards, 70 yards, and the last one being from the mind boggling distance of 75 yards which smashes the NFL record by a full 12 yards:
Some people believe that the video might be faked since we never truly see the ball trajectory as it goes through the uprights but if you’re asking McAfee, he says that there was no trickery involved.
