September 12, 2012North Carolina
A kicker from Pinecrest High School has booted his way into the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Record Book, according to a report in the Southern Pines Pilot.
Last Friday night, with 22 seconds to go in the first half, Pinecrest's Jackson Maples booted a 60-yard field goal, the second longest documented three-pointer in the NCHSAA Record Book. It wound up not being enough, as Reagan rallied to score a 28-20 victory over Pinecrest.
Maples also kicked a 44-yard field goal and intercepted two passes in the game.
The longest field goal documented for the Record Book occurred on September 2, 2000, when Cline Ingle of Lawndale Burns booted a 61-yarder for the only points for his team in a 48-3 loss to Shelby.
