Following a record-breaking career with the Flames and pursuing the NFL for two seasons, former standout kicker John Lunsford has taken his skills to the American Arena League.

During today's LFSN Game On feature video, Lunsford talks about his journey to the Florida Tarpons' roster after spending the 2016 and 2017 seasons on NFL rosters for the San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks.

Lunsford was a three-time All-American for the Flames. He was named a Sports Network and Fabulous Fifty FCS All-America first-team honoree in 2014 and to the STATS FCS All-America second team in 2015.

Lunsford finished his career as the NCAA FCS career record holder with 12 50-plus yard field goals. He is Liberty's all-time leader in career extra points made (150) and ranks second in field goals (48) and career scoring (294 points).

The native of Fort Myers, Fla., completed his senior season ranked No. 12 in the country among FCS kickers in career field goal attempts (79) and No. 23 in career field goals (48).
