A rabona works magic on football field

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Because this has to be the greatest onside kick in history, we're featuring a non-soccer video today.

Of course, like most football kickers, Rice senior Chris Boswell is a longtime soccer player.

And when his team needed the ball back quickly against Houston, he executed a perfect rabona, which sent the ball to where the Owls least expected it.

    Great video choice! Ya gotta love the announcer's startled voice as he realizes upon the replay: "[with great surprise and drama in his voice] he kicked it from behind!" LOL, welcome to the world of "football".

    Innovation at its best.
