Former kicker hits halftime field goal, wins a car as a result

Halftime of the game between crosstown rivals Simi Valley High (Simi Valley, Calif.) and Royal High (Simi Valley, Calif.) featured a placekicking competition for a new car and a former high school kicker's chance to drive away with that new pair of wheels, according to Yahoo Sports.



The site reports the eventual conclusion couldn't have been more thrilling, and that was before a wild second half led to a 50-49 Royal High victory.

Former Simi Valley student Invictus Igwe connected on a field goal attempt from 40 yards to earn a brand new 2014 Chevrolet Camaro, with a value of roughly $24,000. It's worth keeping in mind that a 40-yard field goal is no chip shot at the high school level; most teams across the nation would kill to have a placekicker on their roster who could hit from 40 yards, Yahoo Sports reports.
