A 17-year veteran, and one of the NFL’s most productive kickers, Jason Hanson is the Detroit Lions’ all-time scoring leader with 1,714 points as well as the all-time leader in field goals and extra points. Hanson became only the eighth player in NFL history to surpass the 1,700-point mark in 2008, and he ranks third in all-time scoring amongst active players. With 39 field goals of 50 yards or more, Hanson is in second place all-time among kickers in NFL history and is just one field goal shy of the all-time record. Amazingly, the Spokane, Wash., native has only missed seven extra points in his career (514-of-521). To Hanson, playing professional football is a privilege that holds a special responsibility and he is a tireless volunteer. Listen in as he shares how he handles the pressures of big league play.
