SAN DIEGO (AP) - Just call him ``Kickalicious.''
That's what coaches with the Detroit Lions did after they had too much trouble pronouncing Havard Rugland's name during a tryout earlier this week.
Rugland is the Norwegian Internet kicking sensation who hopes to parlay his incredible trick-shot video - which he called ``Kickalicious'' - into a dream job kicking for an NFL team.
Rugland is headed next to Michael Husted's pro kicking camp in Florida, where the goal is to be seen by more NFL teams.
Rugland feels his tryout went well, despite tweaking the hamstring in his powerful left leg. He's refined his kicking motion while working out with Husted in San Diego since having a tryout with the New York Jets in December. The 28-year-old feels he has a good shot at signing with an NFL team, even if it's not right away.
