Tennessee Titans Football (and Soccer) Player – Rob Bironas

In Favorite Soccer Players on September 8, 2007 at 9:06 pm

You may not know it, football fans, but you can thank a ton of former soccer players for winning a lot of NFL football games. In fact, Rob Bironas, the kicker for my favorite NFL team – the Tennessee Titans – played soccer in high school for four years.

In the photo, below, Bironas is celebrating after kicking a 49-yard field goal that goes through the uprights with 11 seconds left in the fourth quarter to beat the New York Giants, 24-21, in a home game on Nov. 26, 2006.
