LSU Soccer star goalie Mo Isom is set to try out as a kicking specialist for the LSU football team Tuesday. Apparently, Isom claims to have kicked field goals as far a 51 yards in practice and once dropped in a modest 90 yard goal in a real live soccer match. Isom said...

"I’ve been training since January of this year! I had it in my mind, and I approached some of the players I know, and they were so enthusiastic. And then I talked to some of the coaching staff, because of course I wanted to be in their good graces. I was expecting to see some resistance but all the doors were open to me, and everybody has been so excited, which is so great. I started working out with the team some this summer, which wound up helping as some cross-training for soccer, and I kept working on my kicking in my spare time. Then this fall I went through the walk-on tryouts, just to kind of see what it was like, and I kicked a 51-yarder. Obviously I was going to finish up in soccer, but I will be back to try out again this spring.

It would just be a fantastic way to spend my last year as a Tiger. And I love the guys on the team. I just think it would be a really special experience."
