FORT COLLINS, Colo. — The kicker on Colorado State University’s football team has become an internet sensation after winning an online contest.

Wyatt Bryan said the kick isn’t that hard.

Last year, the freshman from Larkspur posted the kick on Instagram and it got plenty of attention. In fact, it won a contest for “Best Kick Shot,” which included getting noticed and votes from some NFL players.

“I was blown away for Pro Bowlers to say that about my trick kick,” Bryan said.

Bryan said the key to the trick is rolling the ball backward with his foot so it spins on the tip.

It took him only three kicks to get one through the uprights when he recreated it.
