Yes, Pacheco nailed a 64-yard shot with 27 seconds left in the game to give Carson a 27-24 victory against Bishop Manogue High School.
“I’m still in shock,” Pacheco said afterward. “I knew it was good as soon as I hit it. The snap was perfect and the hold was perfect. The wind was blowing to the right and I played it perfectly.
“I wasn’t surprised that coach let me try. He told me before the game that anything 65 and under we had a chance. We did what we could do.”
Pacheco’s kick now stands as the second longest field goal in Nevada history, just behind a 1985 68-yard effort from Reno High kicker Dirk Borgognone which is actually both the Nevada and national high school record.
Pacheco’s kick was also long enough to put him in a tie for the fourth-longest field goal kick in the history of high school football.
Pacheco’s 64-yarder also came from farther out than any field goal in the NFL. Last month, Oakland Raiders place-kicker Sebastian Janikowski hit a 63-yard field goal in the Raiders’ season-opening victory against the Denver Broncos to tie for the longest in NFL history, but it was still a full yard shorter than Pacheco’s.
