Marcus Blackwell 2:21 pm, May 3rd, 2017 The longest made field goal in Division I history was 67 yards. In the NFL, the longest successful attempt was 64 yards.
With that being said, Florida Gator kicker Eddy Pineiro drilled one from 81 yards yesterday in practice. Yes, you read that right. 81 YARDS. Usually, practice footage isn’t too compelling but this one is definitely a must see. Check out the kick below. 81 yarder with pads on. No excuses!

Maybe not, but it surely is a plus knowing that he has this ability.
