Florida holding open tryout for kickers ... seriously

If you have a working leg, think you can kick a football and are a University of Florida student, you could be the Gators' next kicker.

No, for real.

After starting kicker Jorge Powell left the LSU game with a leg injury, Florida turned to former starter Austin Hardin, who has had an up-and-down season. Hardin didn't get a ton of work in Baton Rouge, but Florida isn't taking any chances with relying on just him, as long as Powell is out.

Florida is calling for all kickers in Gainesville to come and try out for a walk-on spot with the Gators.

This kid might be a year too late for the Gators, but you better believe Florida's staff will recruit Alabama junior college commit Eddy Pineiro even harder after watching this 76-yard kick of beauty over and over and over again.
