Lucky Louisiana Tech Kicker Banking Ball Off Both Uprights is Absurdly Enjoyable

But did he call bank? 

It might be the booming sound the uprights make when the ball bounces off each post, or maybe it's the sight of seeing the football gods corral a poor kick, but I can't stop watching this video. 

Next Impulse Sports spotted a highlight you may have missed from Thursday night, and you should really remedy that now. Yahoo! Sports has a full report on this particular field goal that took place in a game between Louisiana Tech and Tulane. 

In the first quarter, Bulldogs kicker Kyle Fischer steps up to take a crack at giving the game its first points. Not only is he successful, but he manages to make a field-goal attempt in the third week of the season highly memorable. 

Fischer seems to over compensate for the ball placement and smashes the ball wide to the left. Instead of missing a 24-yard cupcake, he banks it off not one but two uprights. This kid has a future making trick-shot videos after college. 

Sadly, this wonderful tale has a depressing end. It seems Fischer's luck was all used up with this first-quarter kick. The young man went 2-for-4 on kicks for the rest of the game and his team lost to Tulane, 24-15. 

The Bulldogs fall to 1-2 on the season and next play Kansas on Saturday, Sept. 21. It remains to be seen if Fischer can once again captivate with a bank-shot field goal. But something tells me Louisiana Tech fans would rather he go the boring route and just kick it right down the middle.
