Before Cole Netten leaves Iowa State as their best all-time kicker and leading scorer, he made sure to thank the people who have made him work even harder: his haters.
“Y’all made me work harder. Thank you,” the student athlete tweeted Wednesday.
Along with his thank you, a montage of mean tweets was shown in a video set to symphony music.
“Cole Netten, please learn how to kick a field goal. Sincerely, every Iowa State football fan,” read one.
His track record proves otherwise, however. He was the Big 12’s best kicker this season, is the most accurate kicker in school history and nailed 79 percent of all field goal tries in his career, according to ESPN.
He also made 16 of his 17 field goal attempts this season.
