Aussie Michael Dickson's NFL career has started off brightly after an impressive performance in Seattle's 27-24 loss to Denver.
The 22-year-old from Sydney was taken at pick 149 in the 2018 NFL Draft and sent social media into meltdown after his long bombs. Dickson averaged 59 yards per punt in the game.

Dickson played his Aussie Rules football and was apart of the Sydney Swans academy before trialing with Prokick Australia when he turned 19. Following a successful trial, he was picked up by the University of Texas.
