Yesterday, Off the Bench covered a video of a high school kicker in Washington draining a 67-yard field goal to tie a game but he wasn’t the only young kicker draining it from distance.

In this clip from Texas, one fourteen-year old from Midland by the name of Blake Carter decided to show off his leg in a recent junior high school practice. With help from his coach as the holder, Blake lines up a 63-yard field goal attempt.

Watch as his kick gets plenty of leg and goes toward a set of uprights on the other side of the field:

Although it’s tough to tell if it actually goes in, I’m going to believe that the celebration was justified.
