This is pretty amazing. Watch Central Valley High Schools Austin Rehkow makes a 67-yard field goal with two seconds left on the clock to send the game to overtime:
Austins team would go on to win the game in overtime.
If you need a little perspective on just how amazing that kick was, the NFL record for longest field goal is 63 yards.

I remember Tom Dempsey’s kick in 1970
And this is a High School Kicker!
Amazing, That beats my 25 yarder.
Where is this high school?
The NFL teams have probably already called him. He’s probably already has a sports agent. This was truly spectacular.
Just remember very few High Schools have 6'6” Defensive linemen with a 48” vertical leap like the NFL does.
Where is this high school?
That’s what every college scout is saying right now. :)
Thanks! I couldn’t find it anywhere in the article......
I understand they changed the shoe rule for orthopedic shoes in kickers after that,
but it was still amazing!
It will take St. Peter a few extra days to find it.
I remember watching that live. All Alex Karras (Rest his soul) could do was put his hands on his hips (after the kick).
He looks like an old time kicker, straight to the ball, and not the modern soccer style where the kicker is off to the side. -tom
I’d drug test him before putting him in the records.
Just sayin’ . . .
Another interesting thing lost in all the hoopla: The opposing quarterback from Shadle Park High School in Spokane, Wash. threw for 577 yards and broke the state record for passing yards in a game and the league record for passing yards in a single season. Brett Rypien is the nephew of NFL quarterback/Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien, also a Shadle Park alum and is only a SOPHOMORE.
I believe I read that he is a Mormon. Just sayin......
Bring him to the Redskins...NOW!!!
Yes. Didn’t the officials believe that the flat front end of the boot helped him?
Ah! I well remember Lou Groza, and the rumor that he had a brick in the toe of his kickin’ shoe!
FUNnominal!!! Can you imagine?
I read another article on this that said the opposing quarterback in this game had thrown for 577 yards in this game alone and had set a single season record for most yards.
The opposing quarterback is Mark Rypien's kid.
That isn’t always a permanent condition.
The best kicker in the world, Austin Rehkow, of Central Valley HS in Spokane Valley WA kicks a 67-yard field goal (yes, 67 yards!!!, maybe even 67 ¼ yards... look closely at the line of scrimmage) with 2 seconds left to tie game with Shadle Park HS at 55-55 (CV won 62-55) on October 18, 2012 at at Joe Albi Stadium in Spokane WA
“Yes. Didnt the officials believe that the flat front end of the boot helped him?”
And physics would agree with officials. The transfer of energy is greater if all things remain equal except the contact surface area.
There have been quite a few NFL kickers that grew up in the State of Washington. On a per capita basis, I doubt any other state has sent more to the NFL.
