Video: Washington teen kicks 67-yard field goal

Friday, October 19, 2012

It was a record night for a high school senior from Spokane, Washington.

Central Valley High School's Austin Rehkow kicked a state-record 67-yard field goal as time expired to send the game against Shadle Park into overtime, where his team won 62-55.

According to the National Federation of High Schools Record Book, Rehkow's kick is tied for the second-longest kick in the country. Dirk Borgognone, of Reno, Nevada, holds the record with a 68-yarder back in 1985.

The other two kickers with 67-yard field goals are from Texas in 1987 and Georgia in 1999.

ESPN reports that Rehkow only has a partial scholarship offer from Eastern Washington.

He entered the game ranked third all-time in the state with 25 career field goals.
