This comes from Wolverine247 Sports and may not fall under the criteria of “geeky”, but is cool nonetheless.

Adams State (out of Colorado) has been looking for a new place kicker for their Division II football program and believes that have found one in Becca Longo!

The entire Geeky Daddy team will be rooting for you Becca Longo and hope to someday see you connecting on field goals professionally on Sunday afternoons!

Side note: Don’t tell me I am the only one who thought of Kathy Ireland as the kicker for the Texas State Armadillos in 1991’s Necessary Roughness. Not the funniest football movie ever, but entertaining.
