As you may remember Kentucky’s Field Goal kicker from last season, Austin MacGinnis, was an absolutely deadly kicker that Kentucky had for the last 4 seasons. MacGinnis throughout his career at Kentucky attempted 64 field goals and made 51 of them and that’s right around an 80% average on his career! Well, we all know how good he was especially when he hit those two game winning field goals against both Mississippi State and Louisville. However, MacGinnis hasn’t had a lot of love from NFL teams and this fan of the Cleveland Browns tweeted yesterday, “If we would have had Austin, we would be 2-0 right now” and I hate to argue his point because I believe he’s probably right because MacGinnis was that clutch of a kicker.
MacGinnis responded to that tweet saying, “All I need is a chance.” and I really hope he gets one because I think he will surprise some NFL folks with his kicking abilities.
All we can do is hope but hey with a guy as talented as him I believe there’s still hope for guys like him especially since there has been a combined 17 missed FG attempts in the NFL thus far and it’s only week 2 of the season.
