Jan Stenerud (born November 26, 1942, in Fetsund, Norway) is a former football player for the Kansas City Chiefs (1967-1979), Green Bay Packers (1980-1983), and Minnesota Vikings (1984-1985) of the National Football League. Stenerud was one of the first professional football players to be used as a dedicated kicker, due to his excellent "sharpshooting" ball kicking performance. He was one of the first placekickers to use the "soccer style," a technique the Hungarian-born Pete Gogolak had recently introduced in the AFL. He attended Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana and in 1964 kicked a 59-yard field goal, then a college football record, against the rival Montana Grizzlies.

Jan Stenerud - Kicking Pioneer | NEWS | NFLPLAYERS.COM (1048 words)
Jan Stenerud, the Norway native who became one of the greatest kickers of all-time and the only pure place kicker to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, didn't even get introduced to the game of football until his junior year of college in 1964.
Stenerud's first opportunity to become familiar with the kicking game of football occurred when he was running the stadium steps as part of his off-season skiing training.
Stenerud sealed his roster spot by booting a successful 62-yard field goal in the spring game during his junior year and soon thereafter, made a kick that would change his life forever.
