Texas kicker raises the bar with backflip field goal

Posted June 9th, 2015


OK, so when it comes to football feats, you’ve seen a backflip catch or two in your day. A pair of Texas football players upped the ante Monday with their acrobatic backflip field goal video.

Texas kicker Nick Rose said he attempted 10,000 field goals over the summer.   (RODOLFO GONZALEZ / AMERICAN-STATESMAN)

Quarterback Trey Holtz posted a clip of himself and Texas kicker Nick Rose completing the impressive new field goal move in slow-motion on his Twitter account. “Texas has raised the bar,” he wrote.


Rose, the one performing the backflip in the video, is no stranger to viral fame – his headshot went viral last year.
