High School Long Kicks - Maine

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Maine.
  • 47 Mark Dieuveuil, John Bapst Memorial (Bangor), 2009 
  • 45 Mark Bennett, Mount View (Thorndike), 2009 
  • 43 Chad Martin, Lawrence vs. Gardiner, 9/5/2014
"We’ve been very fortunate with Chad, for him to be as passionate as he is about kicking,' coach John Hersom said. 'He’s gone to a few camps, where he’s gotten some great instruction. We can’t take much credit for it'.... Martin’s field goal at Gardiner on Friday would have been good from 55 yards, which is close to his longest in practice. In deciding to try the field goal, Hersom was never concerned with the distance. 'The only debate we had on the headsets was, there was under three minutes left in the half. Had it missed, it would have given Gardiner a little better field position,' Hersom said. 'As far as the distance, I was pretty comfortable. It was a nice shot, and it was dead center, too'." - Central Maine
