Spokane High School Football Player Kicks Record Breaking 67 Yard Field Goal [VIDEO]

Austin Rehkow Kicks a 67-yard Field Goal for Central Valley High School in Spokane, Washington
ABC

The NFL record for the longest Field Goal in a game is 63 yards, which has been done on four occasions and once this season by David Akers of the San Francisco 49ers. The High School record is debatable considering it is often based on eye witness reports, but a kick in last nights Central Valley High School vs. Shadle Park High School in Spokane is undoubtedly one for the record books.

According to the Seattle Times, Central Valley kicker Austin Rehkow broke a more than 80 year old Washington State record with a 67-yard field goal Thursday night.

This wasn’t just a record setting kick. It came as time expired in the fourth quarter, tying the game at 55 and forcing overtime. It would prove crucial as Central Valley went on to win 62-55.

According to ESPN.com, Rehkow has a partial scholarship offer from Eastern Washington. I think making the ESPN Sportscenter Top 10 may get you some more recognition.

SideNote: Shadle Park quarterback Brett Rypien is the nephew of former Washington State and NFL quarterback Mark Rypienn. Brett broke the Washington State single-game passing record by throwing for 577 yards in this same game.

Rehkow told Good Morning America:

I kicked it and I was a little bit worried it was going to be a little bit left. It started to straighten out for me, and from 67 yards out it’s kind of hard to tell if it goes over the bar or is just short of it. I really just had to wait for the refs to put their arms up for me. To get it with no wind, and especially to [get a chance to] win the game, it’s a special feeling.
