For the past few years, Florida State’s kicker had been Roberto Aguayo, one of the best in college football history. He was so good, he declared for the draft as a junior — rare for a kicker — and the the Buccaneers used a second-round draft pick on him -- even rarer. Through preseason, that has looked like a bad idea, but whatever.
But now Aguayo is gone, and who steps in for the Noles? Ricky Aguayo, Roberto’s younger brother. The younger Aguayo was ranked in the top five of kicker recruiting rankings by Kohl’s (a service that ranks high school kickers) as well as ESPN and Scout. (ESPN had Roberto sixth.) and although he had offers from other schools like Alabama, he didn’t visit anywhere besides FSU. I mean, why would he?
So far in the Noles’ season opener against Ole Miss, Aguayo has looked just as good as his big bro. He’s 6 for 6 with three 40-plus yard field goals.
We presume Aguayo was trying to say he has ice water in his veins, a la D’Angelo Russell. But Russell’s celebration is just kinda pointing to his veins. Aguayo is pretending to be actually injecting ice water into his veins.
I gotta say injection is a legitimately poor way to consume water. It doesn’t even really get water to the parts of your body that require water. This looks a lot more like how you consume [ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE] or [SUBSTANCE ATHLETES ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO CONSUME].
Celebrations aside, FSU should be in good shape with Baby Aguayo. Someone get Tampa Bay a first rounder in 2019 to lock this guy up.
