During an onside kick on Sunday, Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis decided to attempt a Rabona in an effort to fake out the Denver receiving line. It might not have worked, but that form is pretty impecable – he almost looks like Eric Lamela as he wraps his foot around the ball and swings it back across the field.
Caleb actually has soccer in his bones, so it is no surprise that he caught it so cleanly. His big brother is Nathan Sturgis, who just finished his season with Chivas USA. They grew up together playing on soccer teams, but Caleb took the opportunity to head the NFL route as a kicker.
The most impressive part for us is his boot choice – with a combo pair of Nike Tiempo Legend. On his left he was wearing the original release from the Tiempo Legend IV series, while on his right he had the reliable clash version in the same range. It is a very sophisticated choice considering the fact that he could easily choose any boot currently on the market.
