Kickball with the Gators: Johnny Townsend, Eddy Pineiro visit Gainesville school

A regular old game of playground kickball got a dash of excitement when Florida’s star kickers joined the show.

Gators punter Johnny Townsend and placekicker Eddy Pineiro unleashed devastating kickball form during a game at Lawton Chiles Elementary School in Gainesville on Wednesday.

Townsend posted a short video from the game on Twitter.

Though Gridiron Now hasn’t received a ruling from the official scorer, that would appear to be the kickball equivalent of a home run.

Pineiro drove the ball nearly as far, but if he had used that aim on the football field, the back judge would have waved his arms to signal the attempt no good – wide right.

It doesn’t appear that this Pineiro kick, unlike his much-publicized attempt in practice earlier this month, made it as far as 81 yards.
