Watch former Groza winner Davis have kicking contest with Pineiro

BY foxsports • January 27, 2016

The kicking woes of Florida in 2015 have been chronicled over and over. 

A 7-of-17 mark simply won't get it done for Jim McElwain's program. As such, he scoured the country in order to find the best kicking option possible. 

By best, he meant Miami native Eddy Pineiro. Ranked as the nation's top-ranked kicker, Pineiro figures to come in and impact a depth chart sorely lacking in talent. 

On Wednesday, Pineiro posted a video of himself kicking in Florida's indoor facility. Next to Pineiro stood former Gator Judd Davis -- the 1993 Lou Groza Award-winner and first-team All American. The duo both ran up and nailed 55-yard field goals in a simultaneous fashion. Each kick cleared the bar with ease. 

If Pineiro has a career even somewhat similar that of the Hall-of-Fame kicker, McElwain and the Gators will be ecstatic.
