WATCH: Former Alabama PK Will Reichard makes impressive 60-yard FG at Senior Bowl practice

Butch Dill - USA TODAY Sports

Alabama football fans appreciate his consistent and impressive kicking abilities for five years.

Will Reichard, a native of Hoover, Ala., is participating at the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. He earned SEC Special Teams Player of the Year in 2023 for his excellence in making 22 of 25 field goals and all 55 extra points. Reichard finished his collegiate career as the NCAA’s all-time leader for points (539). The 6-foot, 191-pounder accomplished perfection in 2020, making all 14 field goals and all 84 extra points to push the Crimson Tide to an SEC Championship and a College Football Playoff National Championship. Reichard, a former three-star recruit in the 2019 signing class, is a three-time SEC Champion (2020-21, 2023).

He projects as one of the top specialists in the upcoming NFL Draft. 

Reichard made an impressive 60-yard field goal with leg to spare in Tuesday’s practice. Several NFL scouts at the Senior Bowl were amazed at Reichard’s range, accuracy, and consistency to strike the ball well. 

Some professional teams are in need of a reliable kicker.

Reichard will be a day two pick, but it will depend on how early he comes off the board.
