Name That Foot, episode 13


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.

A. 
Hint: he's kicked for three different NFL teams in preseasons. Of those three, two are located east of the Mississippi River.
B.  
Hint: he has played for eight different clubs and one national team. Of those nine, eight are located in the western hemisphere. The lone eastern hemisphere stint was in Germany, early in his career. His current and recent teams are all in MLS.
C.
Hint: he's played for one pro team, located approximately 2500 miles by road from where he played in college.









Bonus hint: 
All three players received a large pay raise last year. 

Epilogue:
Nobody correctly named all three feet this week, although several identified A and C.

The correct answers are:

A. Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Connor Barth, who has previously been with Miami (preseason only) and Kansas City.

B. D.C. United midfielder Dwayne De Rosario, who has previously played for four other MLS clubs, three other pro clubs, and the Canadian national team.

C. San Francisco 49ers punter Andy Lee, who attended college at the University of Pittsburgh.
