High School Long Kicks - Iowa

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Iowa.

List compiled by Creston News Advertiser
  • 63 yards — Todd Sievers, Ankeny vs. Fort Dodge, Oct. 10, 1997.
"Sievers launched a 63-yard field goal Friday night, fourth best in high school football history, in No. 5 Ankeny’s 45-0 rout of Fort Dodge. 'He’s the best I’ve ever seen and I really mean that,' Ankeny coach Jerry Pizetti said. If 63 yards sounds familiar for a field goal that’s because the distance is the same as the longest field goal in NFL history. Tom Dempsey kicked a 63-yarder that won a game for the New Orleans Saints in 1970. Sievers’ kick came in the fourth quarter of a game that Ankeny was leading 35-0. Pizetti wanted to punt but assistant Mark Becker convinced him to give Sievers a chance. 'I know he’s a weapon and we know we can try him from 50 yards out,' Pizetti said. 'But 63 yards, that’s a long way. If the kick is blocked, that can turn a close game. Tonight, we didn’t have to worry. I thought he had a chance.' Sievers knew the kick had a chance as soon as he connected. 'It felt good when it came off my foot,' he said. 'I thought it would hit the cross bar. Then the referee’s hand went up and I just ran around hooting and hollering, jumped 20 feet in the air'." - Spokesman-Review
