WATCH: Georgia Tech kicker saves the day during practice
Sometimes, being the kicker on a football team can be a thankless job. If you make the kick, you’ve done your job and ninety-nine percent of the time, no one cares. But, when you miss a field goal, especially a close one, the announcers, fans and teammates can turn on you quickly. It does not happen often, but kickers sometimes get the chance to play the hero and save the day. Most of the time, this happens during the last seconds of a game.
But today, Georgia Tech kicker Harrison Butker saved the day during the team’s practice.
If Butker could nail a 50-yard kick, the team would be saved from extended running at the end of practice.
If not, Butker would be the cause of the entire team’s misery. Luckily for them, Butker is money from that distance.
