WATCH: Harrison Butker Nails Longest Field Goal in Super Bowl History


Butker is a former kicker at Georgia Tech



Guess who has the longest field goal in Super Bowl history?

That would be Georgia Tech’s own Harrison Butker. Butker nailed a 57-yard field goal in the third quarter of tonight’s Super Bowl and broke 49ers kicker Jake Moody’s record of 55-yards, which he set in the first half of this game.

Butker is 2/2 in this game and remains perfect this postseason. In a night where the Chiefs offense is having a tough time getting anything going, Butker has been clutch in a big way.

Butker is one of the best kickers in the NFL and has been a fantastic kicker since his days at Georgia Tech.
