Rising Stars: NFL: Younghoe Koo

There is a new star in the NFL. A kicker. Younghoe Koo is the most new and greatest kicker in the NFL. He recovers his outside kicks, makes every FG he tries. He is fanamonal on and off the field. He posted on his Twitter a video of him spinning the ball, kicking a FG, and doing a backflip in practice.

He was born on August 3, 1994 in Seoul, South Korea. He is 26 years old. He is 5'10" and 195 lbs. He went to college at Georgia Southern. He was 62 for 64 on extra points and 26 for 29 on FGs. He had 140 points in his college career. Extra Point percentage: 96.9%. Field goal Percentage: 89.7%. He started his NFL career with the LA Chargers. In 2019, he joined the Falcons. In 2020, he became the starting kicker on the Falcons. He is 6-6 on the year in FGs. He made 4 FGs in the past game against the Cowboys on Sep. 20.


There is a hope that this kid could be a future hall of famer. He is a very athletic kicker. He is not afraid of injury. He could help the Falcons get to a Super Bowl. He is accurate on his kicks. He defenitely kooks like the best. He could win kicker of the year. He is the future of the kicking positon of the NFL.

The Falcons Future:

The Falcons are a great team. They just need some help on defense to get back to the Super Bowl. They have the right Wide Recievers, Running Back, and Quarterback. They are a sleeping giant. I think that the Falcons will go 7-9, and get a pick in the 10s through 20s. They have the 5th toughest schedule in the NFL. They will be better in 2021.
