I usually stay clear of trick shot videos on this site, because of the potential for special effects trickery, and the fact that they’ve become pretty repetitious and boring. But that was before one guy used one such video to get him a job wit the New York Jets.

Actually Havard Rugland of Norway isn’t a Jet all the way. But he did get a tryout with the team after his trick shot kicking video went, how you say in America, viral.

By Jan Stenerud‘s beard! This guy is good.

“On this trip things have evolved rapidly, from just training alone to training to try out for a team. From where I am now, playing in the NFL is a long way to go, but my goal is to get a contract before the preparations begin for next season,” Rugland said.

    I just threw a pass at a pretty blonde bet the Jets give me a tryout as their new QB I’m even willing to run the Wildcat offense. This is a great way to stock a professional football team! OHHHPPPs my bad we are taking about the Jets so leave out the professional part.
