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.

From Georgia Tech Athletics:

Georgia Tech’s starting place kicker … finished his career as Georgia Tech’s all-time leading scorer with 337 career points and 208 career PATs … ranks third in school history in career field-goal percentage (.717) and fifth in career field goals (43) … one of three team captains in 2016 … honorable-mention all-ACC (media) … led Georgia Tech and ranked 10th in the ACC (all positions) in scoring with 91 points (7.0 ppg) … made 15-of-17 field goals, good for an .882 percentage that led the ACC and ranked 13th nationally … was 8-for-8 on field-goal attempts from 40-plus yards out … was 46-for-46 on PAT attempts … scored 10 points (2-for-2 FG, 3-for-3 PAT) at Pittsburgh (Oct. 8) … tallied eight points in back-to-back games versus Duke (1-for-1 FG, 5-for-5 PAT on Oct. 29) and at North Carolina (2-for-2 FG, 2-for-2 PAT on Nov. 5) … set a career high with 12 points and matched a career high with three field goals in Georgia Tech’s 30-20 win at No. 18 Virginia Tech (Nov. 12) … set a Georgia Tech postseason record by making 4-of-4 field goals (23, season-ling 52, 44 and 26 yards) in TaxSlayer Bowl win over Kentucky (Dec. 31) … accounted for 15 of the Yellow Jackets’ 33 points in the 33-18 win over UK … was also a huge weapon on kickoffs, with 54-of-73 traditional kickoffs (pooch and post-safety kicks not included) going for touchbacks … only five of his kickoffs were returned past the 25 yard line and none were returned past the 38 yard line … opponents’ average starting field position was their own 24.5 yard line following Georgia Tech kickoffs.
