On Friday night, Carson (Nev.) High placekicker Austin Pacheco did something at the high school level that no one has ever done in a competitive NFL game: He hit a field goal from 64 yards out.

As reported by the Associated Press and Carson City Nevada Appeal, Pacheco drilled a 64-yard field-goal attempt with 27 seconds remaining to lift Carson to a 27-24 victory against Bishop Manogue (Nev.) High School.

“I’m still in shock,” Pacheco told the Nevada Appeal. “I knew it was good as soon as I hit it. The snap was perfect and the hold was perfect. The wind was blowing to the right and I played it perfectly.

“I wasn’t surprised that coach let me try. He told me before the game that anything 65 and under we had a chance. We did what we could do.”
