Only twenty years ago, 70-yard field goals in professional football seemed an impossibility but these days, even high school students are draining field goals from that insane distance.

Check out the below clip featuring Cypress Bay High (Florida) kicker Jonathan Semerene practicing with his coach, Brandon Kornblue.

Watch as he makes a 70-yard field goal attempt off the ground look easy and pretty effortless to say the least:

The University of Florida is on the phone…

    The NFL record of 63 yards being broken this year. I can see Greg ‘The Leg’ Zurlein doing it. This high schooler is kicking a 70 yarder. Granted, it was with no rush, a pretty good wind at his back, and looked like wider uprights.

    I’d kick like that girl that tried out for the NFL, wind or no wind.

    Uprights in football (American and Canadian) are a standard 18’6″ apart. No matter the level. The height of the uprights in this clip is most likely causing you to see them as relatively wider.

      That is only for NCAA, NAIA, and NFL/CFL. The width of the posts in H.S. is 23 ft 4 inches.
