It’s not very often that athletes play two sports in college, but it does happen a good bit. The most recent notable two-sport athlete was former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who also pitched for the Seminoles.
It seems like we could have another dual-sport athlete on our hands. Adley Rutschman is one of the better baseball players in the country. The senior at Sherwood High School in Sherwood, Oregon has already committed to Oregon State, a prominent name in the world of college baseball.
His football team, for whom he kicks field goals, is in the midst of the Oregon state playoffs. In the team’s second round game last Friday night, Rutschman showed off his leg power by nailing a 63-yard field goal.

That is pretty impressive, I don’t care who you are. The Beavers have a myriad of kickers on their roster with four, but their starter, Garrett Owens, is 11-16 and 22-33 for his career with a long of 50.
Rutschman hasn’t been offered a scholarship by the Beavers, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was very soon.
