Ryan Succop remains basically automatic on any kick inside the 40 yard line.
The former South Carolina Gamecock kicker proved that again Sunday, drilling a 31-yard field goal with just over a minute to play that proved to be the game-winner for his Tennessee Titans in their 20-17 victory over the Houston Texans.
Succop has now made 47 consecutive kicks from 40 yards or closer. He also made another kick earlier in the game from 42 yards out. Succop previously set an NFL record for most consecutive successful kicks from 50 yards or closer.
The 2009 South Carolina grad has now made seven field goal kicks in a row. His effort Sunday proved to be the decisive score against another NFL team featuring plenty of ex-South Carolina players — the Texans feature cornerback Johnathan Joseph, receiver Bruce Ellington, and, Jadeveon Clowney.

For the first time in history, the Martin Methodist Athletic Department earned distinction as a Gold Champions of Character Five-Star Institution, the NAIA national office recently announced.
Every year, each NAIA institution and conference demonstrate their progress in pursuing character-driven athletics. The Champions of Character Scorecard measures growth in training, promotion, conduct in competition and commitment in five key areas with a possibility of earning 100 points. Institutions can be recognized as Champions of Character Five-Star Institutions at three different levels: Gold (90-100 points), Silver (75-89 points) and Bronze (60-74 points).
The RedHawks were one of three institutions in the Southern States Athletic Conference to achieve the honor.
“We are very proud to have earned ‘Gold Star’ status with our Champions of Character Scorecard,” Athletic Director, Jeff Bain said. Our commitment to character in sport is a continuous journey to teach, monitor, and re-teach. This is our pledge and I sincerely appreciate our coaches and staff in obtaining this elite national honor.”
After a four-goal performance last Friday that lifted her to 100 career goals, Martin Methodist senior forward Millene Cabral has been named the NAIA National Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.
Cabral, a Brazil native, entered last Friday’s contest versus Aquinas four goals shy of 100 career tallies. The senior notched one goal in the first half and then scored three in the span on eight-plus minutes in the second half to achieve the career milestone.
Cabral added two more goals in the RedHawks victory versus # 10 Columbia Monday afternoon at Grissom Pitch.
Through four matches this season, Cabral has scored 12 goals, which is good enough for second in the nation.
The award comes almost one year to the exact date since Cabral’s last national honor.
Cabral and the RedHawks return to action Saturday when they host University of South Carolina – Beaufort.
Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Grissom Pitch in Pulaski.
