High School Long Kicks - Rhode Island

Our series exploring the longest field goals at the high school level in each state continues with Rhode Island.
  • 53 Paul Boulanger, Warren High vs. Smithfield, 1989
"After kicking the longest field goal (fifty-three yards) in Rhode Island schoolboy football history against Smithfield, Warren High School kicker Paul Boulanger was named to the 1989 first All State team.  During his senior season he kicked four other field goals, including a forty-four yarder versus South Kingstown.  And his four punts in the rain against Classical averaged forty-nine yards. That same year he was a member of the All Class C-Two first team as a running back (he ran for six hundred and fifty yards), punter, and offensive kicker.  In fact, he received Class C-Two football honors in all four years of high school competition, including 1986, when, as a freshman member of Pat Abbruzzi’s eighth and final Warren High championship team, Paul was the second team All Class C-Two punter....  Competing in college football for Southern Connecticut as a freshman, he kicked a forty-eight yard field goal on the last play of the game to defeat Central Connecticut, 12-10." - Warren HOF
