High School Long Kicks - Colorado

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Colorado.
  • 67 Kip Smith, Legacy HS in 29-7 win over on Mountain range HS 9/4/09 (Free kick after fair catch on punt) 
"But what fans will remember most is Kip Smith and an oddball field goal attempt that will live for prosperity. Calling a fair catch in the waning seconds of the first half, Legacy`s University of Minnesota-bound booter was given the opportunity for a free kick. Even though his attempt was from 67 yards out Smith didn`t flinch. With a few yards to spare, the senior broke the nine-year record for longest field goal -- held by Eaglecreast`s Dustin Griffiths -- by three yards. 'I actually thought it was a 62-yarder,' Smith said. 'I thought it was a chip shot, because I can hit 62.' The kicker was pleased with his effort, but said he would like to try it again with a holder and a 1-inch field-goal tee. 'I think with a little wind I can make it,' he said." - Broomfield Enterprise
