Thanks to this viral video, Norwegian football player Havard Rugland has been offered the chance to tryout with the New York Jets:
The video shows the 27-year-old performing some outrageous tricks and kicks, from nailing 60-yard field goals to soccer-style scissor kicks and volleys with American footballs. […]
Rugland has no prior American football experience but kicking coach Michael Husted says that if he continues to develop, he could reach the NFL.
“Havard has incredible talent as a kicker,” Husted, who played nine seasons as an NFL kicker, told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper. “He has a cannon for a leg. As he continues to refine his technique, he could be one of the strongest kickers in the NFL.”
He’s certainly got some impressive skills, it would be interesting to hear how he gets on.
