December 26, 2012 (San Diego) – More than a million people have viewed Norwegian Havard Rugland’s YouTube video showing off his amazing kicking skills, says kicking coach Michael Husted, a former NFL kicker working wtih Rugland in San Diego.  It’s also earned him the attention of NFL coaches and a workout with the New York Jets—even though he’s never played in a football game before.
