New Kicker Stout with 74 yard FG in practice.

Just your everyday 74 Well he changed it to ONLY 67 Yards field Goal. Yes I know it's practice but that still takes a leg to do.

Am i crazy or does that look short?

I've watched/paused it a few dozen times and can't say for certain, but in light of his correction, I think it was barely short.

i can get it paused on the frames with the toe of the ball both immediately above and below the bar without the bar being obscured...i think it cleared

Sounds like he made both, but only posted the shorter one by mistake!

Keep working at it. You'll get there.

Kid's got a STOUT leg

Who is this guy?

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Freshmen kicker. Ranked as a 5 Star kicker and punter by Kohl's kicking camps.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

However, I'd be willing to bet that his composite ranking is a 2.5 star. /s

Good thing Tim declared to make way for this kid.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

As we all know, Settle's kicking skills have a long way to go before he's ready for the pros.

He will be missed as a return man, though.

I'm definitely gonna miss Joey looking like a linebacker, this kid looks like he's gonna break his legs when he plants

He said give to me Roscoe

If you have a good enough kicker, he should never have to make a tackle, right?

In the spirit of Joey Slye and Jared Develli, always be ready.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Being able to count on points when we attempt FGs over 40 yards will be a significant improvement and offer more flexibility to the offense.

Dont know why but I immediately thought of this scene. I will definitely be watching little giants today.

Bruce Smith approves of your film choice.

HOKIES

Long field goals are nice, but how consistent is he on touch backs?

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

According to the Patriots it is better to kick it 2 yds into the end zone to convince the return man to bring it out and get tackled at the 18. With the return coverage getting to start 5 yds closer they should be able to make the tackle 5 yds sooner.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Well yeah. But nobody has ever returned a kick for a td when it was kicked out of the back of the end zone. I can see both strategies being successful. Fuente loves predicted outcomes though and I would imagine a high percentage of touchbacks is appealing to him.

It goes without being said that our program puts an enormous emphasis on special teams. If any team in P5 can make a tackle on a kick return, it's us.

Keep in mind as well that he kicked that in the heavy winter air.

'Its easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat,
but the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat'

He also didn't have to kick over a defensive line trying to block it.

That said, sounds like he could have a legit NFL leg

After further review, appears to be pregame of the Duke game. Notice the orange VT in the middle of the field and ribbon board behind the goalposts.

@CraigThompsonVT

Still more fans then LOLUVA

Thats awesome! Surprised more aren't impressed by this.

He said he posted the wrong video. Should we assume he had a video of him making a 74 yarder?

I totally have a video of me picking a 76 yarder from HS...but for some reason the only one to make it onto youtube was the video of my shanking a 23 yarder to lose the game.

I was a long snapper in high school.

Dad??

This again, eh?

I think it's a tad short, but still that kind of distance is impressive. Glad to see we won't have much of a drop off in the kicking category. He's got the leg, hopefully, he's more accurate and consistent than Joey from distance.

A worthy leg for our #1 Long Snapper!
If only his name was Oscar so we could complete the trifecta *sigh*
