Austin Rehkow, a high school senior from Spokane, Washington, kicked a game-tying, 67-yard field goal during a game Thursday night.
The NFL field goal record, held by Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam, Sebastian Janikowski and David Akers, stands at 63-yards.
"I knew we needed it for the tie," Rehkow told ESPN.com's Mason Kelley. "I felt confident in my leg strength. I went out there, you get that extra adrenaline going and then I let it rip. Luckily it stayed through the uprights. Once I saw the arms go up, it was just an overwhelming feeling of joy."
