Trivia Question..

Found it through Since I didn't know and wouldn't have guessed it, I won't give out the answer. Saw that Tony Franklin and Pete Stoyanovich hold the record for the longest FG by a rookie (59 yards) but not on their first attempt.

Very good q.

Bert Rechichar, who booted a 56-yarder on his first NFL attempt on Sept. 27, 1953.

Had to look it up that it was his first attempt but this record stood for a long time (until Dempsey?) as longest NFL field goal.
Oh, Mikey Koenan

Oh, Mikey Koenan

Mikey Koenan is the exception! <?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O /><O:p></O:p>
Here is the story as reported by the Atlanta Falcons:
And his half-ending, momentum-swinging 58-yard field goal Sunday afternoon against the New England Patriots is the longest in the League this year, four yards better than Neil Rackers' 54-yard three-pointer against Seattle in week 3.<O:p></O:p>
To make Koenen's boot even more notable, it was the second longest field goal in Falcons history and the third longest field goal in NFL history by an undrafted player.<O:p></O:p>
That, and it was Koenen's first-ever NFL field goal attempt. Not to mention the longest field goal he's made. As in, ever.
