Watch: UK’s next great kicker knocks down 52-yard field goal

Chance Poore is the best kicker in South Carolina’s 2018 class for a reason. He does things like this:

Dude is knocking down 52-yard field goal attempts like it’s nothing and he’s only a senior in high school.

For comparisons sake, Austin MacGinnis currently holds the school record for longest field goal at 54 yards. That may not last long.

I’m a big fan of the future of UK kicking if I do say so myself. With one more year of high school remaining, Poore will be with the team for the 2018 season – UK’s current backup Miles Butler’s final season with the Cats.

    He looks like Grayson Allen.

    Big difference in a game and in the practice field. I hosted a Japanese kicker training for a chance to make an NFL team. He was a former soccer player.

    I filmed him to send to scouts and we set up two balls(one on each hash) every 5 yards from the 35 yard line to the opposite 45 yard line. The only kick he missed was from 40. Made both of the 65 yarders with room to spare. Saw him make a 70 yarder that barely made it.

    This kid looks accurate, but he needs to gain a helluva lot of leg strength before he’ll make those in a game.
