Watch Florida's Kicker Drill an 81-Yard Field Goal

Florida's kicker is a certified star.

During the 2016 season, University of Florida kicker Eddy Piñeiro didn't miss a single field goal attempt from beyond 50 yards. That's usually a sign that a dude has a pretty strong leg, but based on Piñeiro's latest feat, 50 yards is probably not long enough to accurately judge his kicking abilities.

During the 2016 season, University of Florida kicker Eddy Piñeiro didn't miss a single field goal attempt from beyond 50 yards. That's usually a sign that a dude has a pretty strong leg, but based on Piñeiro's latest feat, 50 yards is probably not long enough to accurately judge his kicking abilities.

During a recent Gators spring football practice, Piñeiro, dressed in full pads, drilled an 81-yard field goal. This came two years after Piñeiro booted a 77-yarder, albeit without pads, a year before he arrived on Florida's campus. As a freshman last season, Piñeiro hit 21 of his 25 field goal attempts, including his last 11 in a row. He also hit more field goals of 40 yards or more (12) than any Florida kicker since 1996.

The next step? Having Piñeiro attempt a 70-yard field goal in a regular season game. What's to lose?
