It was the biggest kick of Brendan Gibbons’ life, and he was envisioning the ball sailing through the uprights and a Michigan Sugar Bowl win. This is what champions are made of, and Gibbons was concentrating on securing a victory for his team in overtime. He was at one with the moment, and his focus was clear.
Wait, no, that’s not really it at all.
Take note, young kickers. If you’re forced into a stressful kicking situation, don’t think about your plant foot or getting the ball high enough to avoid the block. Just think of…brunette girls. Hey, it worked.
This method is now officially Brady Hoke Approved.
