NFL player Justin Tucker set an amazing record on Sun., Sept. 26.

The 31-year-old Baltimore Ravens player set the NFL record for kicking the longest fieldgoal ever – 66 yards!

Did you know he is also a devout Catholic and an opera singer?

The talented professional athlete makes the Sign of the Cross before every kick to “give glory” to God and “say ‘thanks’ for the opportunity.” He also helped raise money for Catholic Charities at a 2016 concert, and sang the Ave Maria at 2015 opera concert.

ChurchPOP posted the 2016 concert in a previous article. However, the Baltimore Ravens published an extended cut featuring an interview with the kicker.
