"Kickalicious" YouTube sensation Havard Rugland is being booted from the Detroit Lions roster.
Rugland, most known for his incredible kicking ability which he demonstrated through a variety of YouTube videos in which he kicked amazingly accurate long shots through basketball hoops and into moving boats, was tracked down by the Lions and signed in April.
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz told the official Detroit Lions club website that decisions on whom to remove from the roster when trimming the team is always a difficult decision.
“It’s always difficult to say goodbye to those guys,” Schwartz said.
Rugland was brought on the team after Jason Hanson decided to hang up his cleats following two decades in the NFL.
“Guys have worked very hard and have put their whole heart and soul into trying to find a niche and contribute,” Schwartz told the website, and that was certainly true in Rugland’s case.
