Thanks to this viral video, Norwegian football player Havard Rugland has been offered the chance to tryout with the New York Jets:
The video shows the 27-year-old performing some outrageous tricks and kicks, from nailing 60-yard field goals to soccer-style scissor kicks and volleys with American footballs. [...]
Rugland has no prior American football experience but kicking coach Michael Husted says that if he continues to develop, he could reach the NFL.
"Havard has incredible talent as a kicker," Husted, who played nine seasons as an NFL kicker, told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper. "He has a cannon for a leg. As he continues to refine his technique, he could be one of the strongest kickers in the NFL."
I can believe it--especially after watching his last kick in the video. Is that real? I mean, can a human being actually do that intentionally?
