[color=#000000][font=Helvetica Neue', Arial, 'Liberation Sans', FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3]The compilation exploded across the Internet and currently has nearly one million views. Even some NFL scouts took notice. And, to say the least, they were impressed.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Helvetica Neue', Arial, 'Liberation Sans', FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3]So the scouts asked kicking coach and former NFLer Michael Husted to work with Rugland in San Diego. After some training Rugland, who has never played American football, recently had a tryout with the New York Jets.[/size][/font][/color]

"They tested me on field goals and kickoffs. Obviously you feel a little more pressure here, but I stayed pretty calm."[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Helvetica Neue', Arial, 'Liberation Sans', FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3]It takes only one viewing of the video to see that Rugland has some serious potential. In fact, Husted even compared him to [b]Sebastian Janikowski[/b] of the Oakland Raiders.[/size][/font][/color]
[color=#000000][font=Helvetica Neue', Arial, 'Liberation Sans', FreeSans, sans-serif][size=3]"Havard has incredible talent as a kicker," [b][url="http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/jetsblog/jets_try_out_youtube_kicking_sensation_68H0o8kwhZlI3KqBGiHYyI#axzz2FiWwBqeQ"]Husted told the [i]Seattle Post-Intelligencer[/i][/url][/b]. "He has a cannon for a leg. As he continues to refine his technique, he could be one of the strongest kickers in the NFL."[/size][/font][/color]

We are all clear that the video is obviously fake, right?

Well at least we know he can kick with the wind. The trees in the background were blowing pretty hard. He also seems to have an understanding of how to use the balls shape and curves to maneuver through the air. Ain't getting my hopes up.

Obviously impressive, but he doesn't have 300 lb man children running at him or any pressure at all.

Draft a freaking decent kicker.

Another thing about the video, this made me skeptical about the guy. Not of his leg or skill set. Just that these type of videos are supposed to glorify you. How many times did he try and kick a 60 yarder before he made it? He can edit this all he wants to make him seem like he never misses but the fact remains he can't be perfect. In a game situation with pressure, how would he react. That's the true test.
