Georgia Southern kicker Younghoe Koo hits backflip field goal (Video)

We’ve seen our fair share of acrobatics from special teams players throughout the offseason, but this may have topped them all.

Younghoe Koo, a junior kicker for Georgia Southern, managed to spin a stationary ball with his feet, run up to the ball and boot a field goal. And using the momentum from the field goal, Koo did a full backflip – all in the same motion.

Oh, and don’t worry. He made the field goal.

That takes a crazy amount of athleticism and definitely goes a step beyond a different kind of backflip field goal we saw from Texas’ Nick Rose back in June.

Koo kicked in 12 games for the Eagles last season, working mainly as a kickoff specialist. In 2013, Koo hit 5-of-6 field goals with a long of 49 yards.
