Dicker the Kicker made a name for himself on Sunday.

Players in the locker room chanted his nickname, “Dicker the Kicker,” Philadelphiaeagles.com reported.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts used it in a postgame interview too. “Dicker the Kicker from UT. How about that?” he said of the undrafted University of Texas star.

Dicker (no relation to this reporter but I’ll claim him as a long-lost cousin this one time) said the first person to use the obvious ― and catchy! ― moniker was his seventh grade science teacher, Mr. Gonzalez.

Dicker got picked up by the Eagles when starting kicker Jake Elliott hurt his ankle. The rookie was elevated to the game roster on Saturday. And he kicked like an old pro on Sunday, making both of his extra points plus a 42-yard field goal in addition to the eventual game winner. (The Cardinals’ Matt Ammendola missed a late, 43-yard field goal attempt.)

Dicker’s preparation for the kick was “normal,” he said.

“Same thing as going out there on a normal kick,” Dicker the Kicker said. “Just run out and go make it.”
