Name That Foot, episode 4

To which three individuals do the feet pictured below belong? 
The first person to correctly name all three in the comments section below earns an honorary degree in kickology, with a minor in trivial photography. Answers will be added to the post next week.

Hint: a field goal record was set on this play.

Hint: a goal scoring record was made on this kick.

Hint: set a punting record in this game. (Monday bonus hint: he's not in the NFL. Think collegiate.)

Bonus hint: all three occurred within the past two months.

There was no official winner this week. Honorable mention goes to Morgan Lineberry who first to identified the first two photos, and to Anonymous, whoever you are, who eventually identified the elusive punter in the third photo.

The correct answers are:
A.St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein, whose 60 yard field goal the other week was the longest ever by an NFL rookie.
B. Read Madrid striker Christiano Ronaldo, whose brace made him the first player to score in six consecutive El Clasicos
C.Georgia State punter Matt Hubbard, who set an NCAA game record by averaging 62.2 yards on five punts against South Carolina State in the season opener (although it may not officially be a record since GSU is currently reclassifying from FCS to FBS).
