Jan Stenerud Biography
Jan Stenerud was born November 26, 1942 and is a Norwegian former kicker for the American Football League's Kansas City Chiefs (1967-1969), and the NFL's Chiefs (1970-1979), Green Bay Packers (1980-1983), and Minnesota Vikings (1984-1985). 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. Stenerud came to the United States on a ski jumping scholarship and had never played football. While attending Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, he joined the football team and in 1965 kicked a 59-yard field goal, then a college football record, against the rival Montana Grizzlies.
During his 3 years in the AFL, Stenerud hit 70% of his field goals, compared with a 53% average for the other kickers in the AFL and NFL.
After the 1969 season, Stenerud won Super Bowl IV with the Chiefs when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings 23-7. In that game, Stenerud kicked three field goals, scoring the first 9 points of the game for his team. His first, a 48-yarder, would remain the longest field goal in a Super Bowl until January 1994, when the record was broken by the Buffalo Bills kicker Steve Christie in Super Bowl XXVIII.
