Texas K Nick Rose kicks backflip field goal

New, 10 comments

So...did it go in?

By now, you've probably seen the backflip one-handed catches going around the interwebs, including this amazing effort by Florida sophomore Marco Wilson, but what about a backflip field goal?

Texas Longhorns kicker Nick Rose and Trey Holtz decided to answer the question that particular question over the weekend:

But did the kick go in? It seems questionable since the video cuts short without any evidence of it traveling over the crossbar, but it's still an impressive and unique effort.

Rose is in line to fill the starting place-kicker role at Texas for a second consecutive season and turned in a strong Orange-White game performance that highlighted improved accuracy on his long-distance efforts.

A three-year letterman in soccer and track at Highland Park in Dallas, Rose is also a better athlete than most people would think -- he set a high school record with a 4.42 40-yard dash.
