a position ofootball field with more pressure than a kicker-- you hit a game winning kick you're a hero. you miss it-- you're the goat. iowa place kicker marshall koehn is 10 for 12 this season for the hawkeyes-- and he took some time to sit down with local 5 sports' alex giaimo to talk about a clutch kick against pitt and show her how to boot a field goal. (alex giaimo) they might not be the center-of- attention but the role of a kicker on a football team is very important. (marshall koehn) a good kicker is someone the team can rely on week in and week out whether it's kicking it into the where it needs to be goals when the team needs them. (alex giaimo) how much as a little kid did you that big kick? you watch it growing kicks like that all the time and you just think like it's so crazy. you don't think you'll ever be in that position but yea i guess it's always of since becoming a (giaimo) back in
september, koehn's dream became a reality.. when he drilled a 57-yard game winning kick as time expired to win the game for the hawkeyes. just one yard shy of the longest field goal in iowa history. (gary dolphin) last play of regulation before we go to overtime. here's the kick, it's on the way, it's set, long enough, it is....goooood. it's good! (giaimo) what were you thinking when you lined up for that ball? (koehn) you know, um, cj got us in a position to give us a chance, you know i was really just wanting to come through on it and i hit the ball really well. it was just such a surreal moment i was just running around aimlessly i didn't know what the heck i was doing i was just so excited that we one and it was just fun celebrating with my teammates. (giaimo) how does that moment compare with the rest of the moments in your life? (koehn) it's definitely number one for sure. (giaimo) and you held (koehn) it's definitely number one for sure. (giaimo) and you held up your fidt anf fist pumped, i actually have great footage of that, what was going
through your mind at that point? (koehn) i was just so happy that the fans were hanging around and waiting till i left. it was pretty sweet. (giaimo) so marshall i don't know if you know this but i am a little bit of an athlete myseld i used to play soccer back in high school in new jersey. i've never kicked a football though and i've always wanted to try do you think you can show me how? (koehn) yea, lets do it. (giaimo) okay well before i make a fool of myself show me how it's done. (koehn) okay so we just got a couple of basic things, um so you're going to kick the ball with the top bone of your right foot, that's where you want to make contact. you want to take 3 steps back from the ball, so if you are right footed, then you go two to the left, then you are going to square it up, find your target the uprights, and am i hitting this? alright. (giaimo) okay so like inside? okay...your like big toe? and like kick it...just like a soccer
ball. okay...it's been a long time. (giaimo) marshall did you deflate this ball for me? (laughs) (giaimo) one, two, three. one, two..(laughs) and (screams) (giaimo) that's it we are ending on that one..done! (giamo) alright marshall...definitely not as easy as it looks but i think soccer helped me a little bit. you were so great. thank you so much. (koehn) thanks a lot alex.
