Interview with Detroit Lions Kicker Harvard "Kickalicious" Rugland

Harvard Rugland became an internet sensation after his video "Kickalicious" went viral and launched him into fame. Since then he has tried out for NFL teams and is currently a member of the Detroit Lions rookie class.

Here are some quotes from his recent media session:

On how he has enjoyed Detroit so far: “Pretty good. Teammates, club, everybody’s really nice. Had a great time so far, so I’m enjoying myself.”

On how he got the nickname “Kickalicous:” That was actually my cousin. At first, we made half the movie and he just tacked on Kickalicious. We talked about it and we said, ‘Well, call it Kickalicous.’ We didn’t think too much of it, but it stands out.”

On if he was nervous about participating in rookie mini-camp: “Yeah, I’m excited. Of course, you need to perform on a high level, but I’ve been kicking for a little while now. So, I feel pretty confident. But of course, you always have some nerves. But that’s good.”

On his original workout with the Lions: “It was a pretty standard workout. We started with a sideline drill where we kicked from the side, went over to field goals and then ended it with kickoffs.”

On his teammates’ reactions to his video: “They think it’s funny. It’s a little bit of a different story, but they laugh about it and call me Kickalicious. They’re really nice.”

London Blitz take over lease of Finsbury Park


For the past few years the London Blitz American Football Club has been part of the Finsbury Park Sports Partnership. The partnership is made up of London Heathside Athletics club, the Dynamic Sports Academy (DSA), local sports charity Access to Sports and ourselves.

Last Tuesday the partnership took over the lease at Finsbury Park Track and Gym facility. There have already been a few changes at the site such as a refit in the gym and decorating throughout. It is hoped that the partnerships move to charity status could open up a number of possibilities to develop the site further and improve the facilities.

Here are two websites with more information.

This is a huge step for the club. Ultimately it could help the Blitz emulate rugby clubs with our own facility and income. In the first instance you may not notice many changes but what we would hope to see happen is that we all take more pride in Finsbury Park and make sure that we are part of making it better.

This development paves the way for the Finsbury Park Sports Partnership to develop the facilities within Finsbury Park Track and Gym in the coming years which will benefit both the athletes and spectators.
