Kickalicious is a video of a twenty-eight year old Norwegian Havard Rugland.
I want to know several things:
1. Is the video real and not Photo Shopped?
2. Does he play on an organized team now?
3. If he is that good, is there a reason he didn’t try out for the NFL sooner?
5. What about kicking under pressure, with defensive players in his face and trying to block his kicks.
The Jets are giving him a tryout. I grew up as a New York Jets fan for American Football. The cynical part of me sees this as another Tim Tebow. It will blow up in their faces. There’s confidence for you. 🙂
