YouTube Sensation Harvard Rugland Signed by Detroit Lions
Kickalious a.k.a. Harvard Rugland recently inked a deal with the Detroit Lions. Rugland is the Norwegian YouTube sensation and has no prior football playing or kicking experience. He uploaded a YouTube video of his trick shot kicking abilities with the video titled “Kickalious.” Even with that awful video title, he racked up 2.5 million views on YouTube.
Harvard worked with former NFL field goal kicker Michael Husted in Florida for a few months, and the hard work obviously paid off. Harvard will get his chance in the NFL with the Detroit Lions. How will he hold up with 300 pound defensive lineman trying to block his field goal attempts? Well, I for one can’t wait to find out.
No prior football experience or knowledge, a YouTube video, and now an NFL contract. The term “anything is possible” comes to mind. Do you think Harvard Rugland will stick in the NFL?
