22 year-old Gabe Brkić was one of the best Division 1 kickers at the University of Oklahoma the past three seasons. During the 2021 season, Brkić was tied for the fourth longest field goal in the nation (57 yards) and managed to rack up 117 points (tied for 10th best in the nation). Brkić is now declaring for the NFL Draft which takes place April 28th-30th. He is expected to go late in the draft (Rounds 5-7) as kickers are normally not taken at all, historically.
Brkić was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and his family/grandparents come from Škabrnja and Metković in Croatia.
Brkić is full of confidence and said that he is fearless when he kicks high pressure field goals. When asked how it feels to hit a game winner, Brkić supplied one of the best quotes in CroatianSports.com history: “When you win the game, everybody wants to talk to you.”
Here’s the full interview:
They lost but how did sime do?
Don’t count atletico out. Only 1-0
Sime Vrsaljko (RB) – 6/10 – A little wasteful with the ball but handled Sterling and later Grealish pretty well.
Sime starting today
This brings back memories of an old Disney movie where a donkey kicked field goals but I think that donkey was a Chetnik.
Who cares about Grbič, college football, kickers, and the NFL draft. He isn’t the first Croatian to be drafted into the NFL, we have Super Bowl winners. If I want NFL news I’ll look it up myself.
Someone shit in your breakfast lad?
1. A shit was definitely left in Stipe’s cereal bowl this morning. He strikes me as a Lucky Charms guy. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
2. I assume you’re talking about Brkic, the person this article is referring to. GRBIĆ is a goalie. Plays for Lille. In France. Baby steps my friend.
Ante, brate. Just keep breaking down how easy we have it on in group F……this kid didn’t know who you were or this cite. How long in advance did you give him his questions?
Does he have to?
Pretty sure this site is called “Croatian Sports”. Last I checked, football is a sport.
Another great cro athlete from Ohio just like miocic..hope he signs a big contract.
Will he become the first NFLer to have the ‘kvaka’ on his jersey (Brkić).
Let me be the first one to say Fuck OU. Go Pokes.
Hope he comes to Green Bay!!! I’ll get the jersey right away!
