I can readily admit Evan Moore got a raw deal from the Denton Record-Chronicle as a standout high school kicker for Aubrey a couple of years ago.

That’ll happen when you’re overshadowed by a district rival who sets the national record for most field goals in a season, which is exactly what former Argyle standout Cole Hedlund did before heading off to Arkansas. Before that, it was Cole’s older brother, Chad, who stole the kicking spotlight in the area.

But Moore isn’t doing too badly for himself, either, and on Tuesday the Texas sophomore made waves on Twitter when he did this…

If you notice, these aren’t the normal videos you see of kickers in pregame “hitting 60-yarders” off a tee. Nope, no tee here. Just a holder off a flat ground — 60 yards one way, and then 60 back the other.

Pretty impressive stuff from one of many successful kickers the area has produced in recent years.
