David Akers, Nate Freese, Alex Henery and now Matt Prater have been the place kicker for the last two seasons.
Remember “Kickalicious,” the Norwegian kicker who made the trick kick videos and came to the Detroit Lions training camp to compete against veteran David Akers?
The Norwegian YouTube sensation is back in Detroit – at least temporarily.
Fans all seemed to love Kickalicous but he ultimately lost the kicking battle to veteran David Akers.
Watching the Detroit Lions celebrate the first NFL kick of YouTube sensation Havard Rugland, one might think he had just won the team a playoff game.
Havard Rugland has not missed a kick in game-like conditions during Detroit Lions training camp.
Reggie Bush brings a dimension to the offense that was sorely lacking last year and—to be honest—is a major upgrade over Jahvid Best.
The scouting report on Havard Rugland is certainly an odd one.
Just call him “Kickalicious.” That’s what coaches with the Detroit Lions did after they couldn’t pronounce Havard Rugland’s name during a tryout earlier this week.
