Freshman kicker Mcpherson is up for the challenge of replacing Pineiro

Eddy Pinerio had a stellar career at the University of Florida. He only missed one kick last year, he became a youtube sensation with a 70 yard field goal, and he ended up being signed by the Raiders after the NFL Draft. 

But incoming freshman Evan McPherson is preparing to jump over the very high bar that Pinerio managed to set as the kicker for the Gators. He brings with him his own highlight reel. 

He's already managed to hit a 70 yarder in a practice setting 

And he set the Alabama HS state record with a 60-yard FG last fall, which helped propel him to being the #1 ranked HS kicker in the country.

“I’m sure it will make it a little tougher, but it’s really motivation, I think,” Evan told “Eddy misses one field goal last year. That makes it where [I have to] not miss any.”
