In Spokane, Washington a high school student hit a 67 yard field goal which is the second longest field goal ever at a high school game.
The Associated Press reported that Austin Rehkow from Central Valley High School made the goal and tied the game with Shadle Park High on Thursday Night. They went on to beat Shadle Park 62-55 in overtime.
"Rehkow's field goal set a Washington state record. The previous mark was 62 yards set in 1929," reported the Associated Press.
In 1985, Dirk Borgognone made the record of 68 yards in Reno, Nevada. The NFL record is 63 yards, reported The AP.
Central Valley coach Rick Giampietri said Friday that he could tell the kick had a chance the instant the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Rehkow booted it.
''It wasn't spinning real fast. He hit it right in the belly,'' Coach Rick Giampietri said to the AP. ''It went between the uprights.''
''He's kicked 60-yarders before in practice,'' the added.
Rekhow, a senior who received a partial scholarship from Eastern Washington University already, said to The Spokesman-Review newspaper that he was confident with his leg strength and ''I went out there and you get that extra adrenaline going. I let it rip. Luckily it stayed through the uprights and once I saw the arms go up (from referees) it was just an overwhelming feeling of joy.''
''I couldn't have done it without a great team putting me in the position. The line gave me enough time. Great snap, great hold."
