What's the longest field goal you've called on the HS level?
« on: August 26, 2009, 03:10:36 PM »
I am the B on my crew.  Two years ago we had a kicker kick a 46-yarder as the half expired.  The crowd went wild and it cleared the cross bar by about three feet.  That was an exciting call!  I tried not to emulate the FJ jumping when calling Dempsy's 63-yarder! :)

What's the longest FG you've called as an official?

That's the one!  My feet were firmly planted on the ground, although I may have thrown my arms in the air more emphatically!

Hernando High School playing Lafayette Co. HS (Mississippi) about five years ago.  I was a last minute addition to the crew, and working BJ.  End of first half, Hernando, with no warning, suddenly runs the FG team onto the field to try a 57 yard kick.  We were so shocked that the LJ didn't even come back with me; I was all alone under the crossbar. 

Kick never veered right or left -- straight down the middle all the way.  So as it reached about the 20, I'm telling myself "it won't get here, won't get here".  About that time, I realized that I was looking up at the crossbar, and that the ball had just crossed the crossbar about 4 feet above it.  I was so stunned I didn't signal anything for a second.  I remember thinking briefly, "DARN, it DID get here".  Then I stepped out and signaled good -- crowd went wild.  57 yard FG to end the half.  Pretty amazing.

56 yards. Just short of the record. Back Judge and I were under the goal post. I'm talking all the way. "Ain't no way any kid can kick it this far." "See it's going to be short !" "Whoa, this just might get here !" "Watch close ...... good night ! Who is that kid ?"

The kick cleared the bar by 5 yards easily. I'm still convinced they should have taken a delay of game penalty to get the record. Oh yeah .....right down the middle.

I had one for 43 yards a couple weeks ago. It would have been good from at least 55.

Had a 51 yard attempt in a 6 man Texas H.S. game a few Saturdays ago.

He missed it wide left. (had the distance)  It was a home schooled kid playing for a home school team.

54 yards. Had a kid try a 65 yarder this season to try to win the game with time expiring but he mis-kicked it and it landed in the end zone short 5 yards. His kick-offs were going that far so the coach figured....

Two weeks ago - 50 yarder - good from at least 55, possibly a little more.

Private school in Ft Worth 3 years ago 51 yarder.  The kids last home game he went on to play soccer, he actually was a very good soccer player.  During the game he also hit the uprights on a KO.  He tried all night to clear the uprights on KO's. :bOW

I had Trilica (the old kicker from Texas Tech) hit a 49 yarder to end the game as a 9th grader.  Needless to say the next week he was playing on Varsity.

We had two 51 yarders in the first half of a game this year.  Both straight down the middle and one would have been good from 65.  Same kid puts every kickoff way past endline.  Only a sophomore.

Can't remember.  He plays for South Lake HS in Groveland, just west of Orlando.

62, in a playoff game.  The wind was behind the kicker and I think he could have gotten 5 to 7 yards more.  All players (and crew) just stood and looked after he put the foot into it.  He duplicated it the next year in the regular season, and it's still a state record.  The young man went on to kick in a major college and in the pros.

52-yarder.  Dead center.  Guys under the goal said it would have been good from another 5 yards.

It wasn't good, but I saw a 62-yard FG attempt after a fair catch in the HS playoff game that I worked on the chain crew.  It was a miserable, muddy night with about 15 seconds left in the first half.  Fell about 10 yards short and ended in the EZ for a touchback.  First time I'd ever seen it, but our crew was all over it (and had discuessed it during the pregame). 

I can't tell you how many times the four of us on the chain crew got asked what that was during halftime while we were on our way to the restroom, either.

We had a Nederland, Texas kid kick one through this last year from 48, and it was at least half-way or higher on the uprights above the crossbar, figure it could have gone from at least 55.
