Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano crushes first pitch in family kickball game
If you’re going to have a little kickball game in the driveway with the family, maybe not serve up a meatball to an NFL kicker on the first pitch.
The ball is still sailing out of the yard, literally, their yard, on side of the house.
Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano posted a video Tuesday of his family kickball scrimmage showing his monster home run. Before the kick, he was admonished not to kick it too hard, but he plummeted the first roll and knocked it over a fence and bushes.
He then trotted around the bases with a little “home run baby” cheer, as his wife Brittany and two of his sons watched and wondered who was going to fetch the ball. According to schoolyard rules for kickball, that would be Gano himself.

Got home today and my fam was playing kickball so I joined in. The only rule is that I’m not allowed to kick it hard. So here is my first at bat… pic.twitter.com/pDeYuiF8yB
