Move Over Steve Young…The New Mormon Football God Is Here
Out in Utah, there is a boy who stands 6’2″, weighs 220lbs, has size 13 1/2 shoes, bench-presses 330 pounds, squats 500 pounds and power cleans 330 pounds. His name is Justin Sorensen and he may well be the most talented high school football player in the country at his position…KICKER?!?!
Thats right, he’s a kicker and one hell of a kicker at that. While Scouts.com has him ranked just #17 in the nation, he’s kicked a 62 yarder in an intrasquad game (NFL Record is 63 yards) and last year 81 of his 96 kickoffs were touchbacks. The coaches felt this was so unfair that they moved the kickoff back to the 25 yardline for one game…and he split the uprights. Yea, a 90-95 yard kick off a tee there. Impressive as hell.
BYU fans are already salivating over him spotting up for kicking duties at their school and why not, the kid has one hell of a leg. Shame his coaches stopped playing him at fullback and linebacker b/c they selfishly just want to use that magical leg without fear of injury elsewhere. Still, it might be worth it, its good to have a niche and the kid could make a fortune in the pro’s if he keeps kicking like this.
Mormons around the world bow down to your new football God!!
Oh, and if you really want to see him in action, here’s his recruitment video. Basically its some crappy video footage of this kid kicking off and getting a bunch of touchbacks…set to some horrible horrible soft jazz of some sort. I made it through 1 minute before i wanted to hang myself.
