Watch: Alabama commit Eddy Pineiro kicks 77-yard field goal

Saturday December 5th, 2015

Alabama commit Eddy Pineiro is showing off on Twitter again.

Back in June, Pineiro posted a video of himself kicking a 73-yard field goal. On Tuesday, the top kicker recruit in the nation went even bigger, this time nailing a 77-yard boot. 

Pineiro, a former soccer player, committed to the Tide in June after attending Alabama’s special teams camp. He secured a scholarship offer after impressing head coach Nick Saban.

Pineiro originally intended to play soccer at Florida Atlantic but was not cleared academically by the NCAA. He played soccer last year at ASA College, a junior college in Miami.

We have a feeling everyone in Tuscaloosa will make sure Eddy sticks to American football.
