Check out the video above as Austin Rehkow of Central Valley High nails a 67-yard field goal as time expires to tie the game at 55 and force overtime against Shadle Park High on Thursday night in Spokane, Wash.

Just look where the holder puts the ball down. Itís on his own 43-yard line. Yes, HIS OWN 43!! The crazy thing is the ball made it over the crossbar with plenty of distance. Just look at how excited the refs are to call it good, looks like they wanna run over and give Rehkow a chest bump.

Keep in mind the longest field goal in NFL history is four yards shorter than Rehkow's kick! Tom Dempsey (1970), Jason Elam (1998), Sebastian Janikowski (2011) and David Akers (2012) have all connected from 63 yards out.

According to The National Federation of High Schools Record Book, Rehkow's kick is tied for the second-longest high school field goal of all-time. Dirk Borgognone of Reno, Nev., holds the record with a 68-yard field goal in 1985. Two other kickers connected on 67-yard field goals in the past. One from Georgia in 1999 and another from Texas in 1987.

Rehkow only has a partial scholarship offer from Eastern Washington right now. That should be changing very soon, as college coaches from all over are sure to be adding him to their lists of top recruits.

Central Valley went on to beat Shadle Park in overtime by a score of 62-55.

Doubt he gets any other scholarships. One kick does not a good kicker make.

Cool story though they have one fact wrong. Tom Dempsey's kick was actually shorter by half a foot.

With a kick like that one, I would assume that the kid is consistent.

Most kickers in the NFL and college do this all the time in practice. The reason they don't do it in games is because the accuracy goes down enough so that the risk isn't worth it - Maybe they can get it 30% or 40% of the time.

This guy happened to get a chance to try it during a game. The note at the end about how he's going to get all these scholarship offers is pretty silly.

Length does not imply accuracy, and a blind guy can hit a bulls eye playing darts once in a while.

Point made, Mr. Stewie. What about that Chiefs kicker that was full of fail in the '90's? Oh... what in the hell was his name?

Also, FWIW, the NCAA record is 67 yards, and it's been matched multiple times. It's harder to kick a ball that far when guys are jumping up 10 feet in the air in front of you.

Martin Gramatica of Kansas State holds the NCAA Record for the longest FG without a tee - 65 yards against Northern Illinois.

Dear God please let us get the #1 pick so that Pioli can try and break NFL policy by drafting this kid with it and moving Succop to QB.

As much as I hate to say it, the Raiders use of a 1st round pick on Ray Guy was stellar. The guy was a game-changer.

Nice kick. BuTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT he could not do it with an NFL football. They have different shapes. It would be similar to hitting a baseball and a softball. the baseball would travel further.

I have no idea what it does to trajectory, but they do use slightly different ball sizes at various levels of play.

Yeah, HS footballs may be a bit smaller than NFL, but he still kicked a 67 yard FG in a HS football game.

I just don't see it making that much of a difference.

I honestly don't know why there's an argument about it. What is the average field goal distance in the NFL? Even if he lost 5-10 yards due to the size of an NFL regulation ball, he still would have cleared the crossbar.

See? This is why I rarely post threads, (especially football related ones). LMAO

I guess I should have gone w/ my original title: "High School Kicker Breaks NFL Record, (That Is If He Was Playing In The NFL And Kicking An NFL Regulation Size Football)."

LMAO Some of you guys are so obtuse and overanalyze shit way too much. The kid did something amazing and I thought the story was cool, so I posted a thread about it. But, just like with every other thread on this site, somebody always has to post an argument.

If the thread had been titled "High School Player Kicks 67-Yard Field Goal," no one would have had anything negative to say about it. You insinuated that he did something that no NFL player has ever been able to do, which is where all the flak is coming from.

Judging by those stats, the fact that he's still a kid, and that he's multi-faceted means he'll probably get, at least, a scholarship. For the kid though at this point, the last thing he should be thinking about is where he goes to college or if he makes it to the NFL. He's a freshman, right? Hit the books and keep getting better at kicking.

I think those stats indicate he doesn't have much of a future as a FG kicker. That's pretty poor even at the college level.

However, his punting average was #1 in NCAA.
