A year ago, Donald Delahaye's jaw-dropping trick-shot field goal grabbed a spot on ESPN's SportsCenter. The Port St. Lucie grad has taken the next step — literally.
Delahaye, who will join UCF as a walk-on this fall, has the ability to take a football, kick it against his plant foot and make the ball spin so it begins rotating in an upright position.
That by itself is magical, and practical. Not many kickers can practice without a person or a tool to hold the ball for them.
But Delahaye shows he can do that as well as make a field goal with either foot. Watch the video above, or click here.
While this move is about as likely to happen during a game as this Plantation player's unbelievable one-handed backflip catch, it's highly entertaining and downright mesmerizing.
Delahaye was 8-for-15 on field-goal attempts while playing for Port St. Lucie last season, though he made four kicks of at least 40 yards, which is impressive. Video also exists of Delahaye making a 70-yard field goal, by the way.
