OK, now this is just getting unfair.
Former Texas kicker and Westlake product Justin Tucker is at the Pro Bowl in Orlando after his historic 2016 season for the Baltimore Ravens, where he’s showing off his superhuman leg for the fans.
Here’s Tucker casually making a 75-yard field goal surrounded by a group of people. Look at the bros who walk in at the end, completely oblivious to what’s just happened. Are you not entertained?

Sure it’s a little wind-aided, but still.
Tucker made all but one of his kicks this season, nailing 38 of 39 field-goal attempts including a record 10 from beyond 50 yards. The only reason he missed at all was because New England’s Shea McClellin hurdled the Ravens long-snapper.
It looks like those 50-yarders have become boring for Tucker, though. He must be training for the day the NFL accepts his rule proposal to revolutionize kickoffs. If that happens, Tucker might have a shot at breaking the NFL career scoring record. He’s already a quarter of the way there.
