Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo reports stolen Jeep, but he's most concerned about missing cleats
Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo is looking for help after he reported his black Jeep Grand Cherokee was stolen Saturday night in the Alpharetta, Georgia area.
Koo, though, was most concerned about getting his cleats back from the theft. He posted the news to Instagram, including what appeared to be a license plate number.
The Georgia Southern product has had a productive start to his career with the Falcons. Last season, he was 37-for-39 with a long of 54 yards on field goal attempts.
But he had a winding career to make it to the NFL, and stick. He earlier spent time with the New England Patriots practice squad during October of 2019. But previously, he signed with the Atlanta Legends of the AAF in January of 2019 where he was 14-for-14 on field goals in eight games. Earlier, he signed with the Los Angeles Chargers as a free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft.
In his college career, Koo was the first kicker in Georgia Southern history to be named a finalist for the Lou Groza Award, and he also became the program’s first FBS All-American (Third-Team). During his senior season (2016), he led the team in scoring with 85 points and also ranked second in the country for field goal percentage hitting 19 of 20 tries, per his Falcons bio.
