Arizona had major kicking struggles in 2016. But one incoming freshman may be the solution after generating major excitement in the social media world on Saturday.
Lucas Havrisik, who ESPN ranked as a 3-star recruit, posted this video in which he drilled three consecutive 60-yard field goals.

The Norco (Calif.) High School product made 11 of 16 field goals in his senior season, including two from 51 yards out. Havrisik committed to Arizona a few weeks before National Signing Day, and has a chance to win the starting job in his first season in the desert.
Long-distance kicks were among the many issues the Wildcats had last season. Arizona kicker Josh Pollack made just one field goal beyond 40 yards in six attempts.
Below are some of Havrisik’s highlights from high school.
