Watch Florida Kicker Eddy Pineiro Boot An 81-Yard Field Goal (Seriously)

"No excuses!"

We know. It’s practice. There’s no snap and hold. No game pressure. No rush of defenders.

But this is still impressive.

University of Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro posted video Tuesday of him blasting an 81-yard field goal. 81 friggin’ yards!

We’ve seen NFL kickers hammering practice boots in the 75 yards-plus range, which Pineiro also accomplished before college. And even former Texas kicker Nick Rose made one from 80 without pads.

But this one, maybe with an apparent wind, is amazing to watch.

For perspective’s sake, Matt Prater set the NFL record of 64 yards in 2013.
