Former Georgia Tech placekicker and current Kansas City Chiefs kicker, Harrison Butker will play in his second consecutive Super Bowl as his team looks to defend their Super Bowl title and become only the second team to successfully defend their title since 2005.
Georgia Tech fans are already very familiar with the work of Harrison Butker and especially with two kicks he made during the now famous 2014 season at Virginia Tech and the “kick and the pick” game at Georgia. Butker is arguably the most famous Georgia Tech grad currently in the NFL (though Darren Waller could have an argument).
Butker this season for the Chiefs has been excellent, making 93% of his kicks while also being a perfect 4 for 4 on kicks over 50 yards this season. In his career so far Butker has been the second-most accurate kicker in the entire NFL only a fraction behind Justin Tucker for the honor of most accurate. In Super Bowl 54, Butker was 4-for-4 on extra points and made his only field-goal attempt of 31-yards as the Chiefs would beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Miami.
Currently, the Chiefs stand as slight favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and seemingly ageless Tom Brady. If it comes down to a situation where Butker is called upon to either tie or win the age for Kansas City, the Atlanta native has more than enough leg and an abundance of talent to step into the moment and cement his name again in Super Bowl history.
Yellow Jacked Up wishes Butker the best of luck in Super Bowl 55 and will certainly hope that he wins his second ring.
