Meet The Man They Call 'Legatron'

Meet The Man They Call 'Legatron', Greg Zuerlein isn't a household name, but the Rams rookie has an impressive nickname and following. Rams rookie Greg Zuerlein has become a kicking sensation and has the nicknames to back it up, John Fassel is dying to try. Oh how he wants to try. The St. Louis Rams special teams coordinator, and son of former NFL head coach Jim Fassel, has a dream in mind.

He can see it now. The ball will be somewhere on the horn of the Rams' insignia in the middle of the field. The goal posts will look like a pair of luminous toothpicks lost in the roaring fans. And Rams head coach Jeff Fisher will glance at Fassel and nod his head.

Send in the kid.

It will be a record field goal, no doubt. Maybe 64 yards. Maybe 65. Something rarely ventured. And the ball will be snapped, the holder will put it down and Greg Zuerlein will plant his left leg and swing his magnificent right foot. In one mighty swoop, shoe will smack against ball sending a tiny brown streak climbing toward those distant poles
