Jimmy Stevens never imagined that he would set a national standard when he began kicking the football. In this feature we talk to Stevens about the record and take a look at his highlight package. two-star prospect Jimmy Stevens, a 5-foot-6, 170-pound kicker from Heritage Hall in Oklahoma City, Okla. will go down in the history books as one of the top prep players at his position.

As a junior, he tied a national record by booting 22 field goals, and this year he surpassed the national career mark by compiling 50 field goals in his career.

“I never thought I would be the national career leader,” Stevens began. “It really means a lot though. It shows me that all of my hard work has paid off.”

Stevens was 10-of-25 this year kicking the ball, but it should be noted that seven of his misses were from 50 plus and two were from 60 plus. In the high winds of Oklahoma it is no small feat to even attempt field goals that long.

“My coach had a lot of confidence in me to send me out there to kick those types of kicks,” Stevens said. “The competitiveness of kicking those types of kicks drives me to get better.”

“I would say being an effective kicker is more about accuracy. You can have a strong leg, but you have to in the groove to be consistent.”

Stevens was honored that the Oklahoma Sooners stepped up to the plate with a scholarship offer.

“I definitely grew up an OU fan,” Stevens informed. “ It was a dream come true for me when they offered. It is definitely going to be a lot of fun playing in the Texas rivalry and games like that.”
