Mason Crosby has been the kicker for the Green Bay Packers since 2007. In that time he has hit tons of clutch field goals, and has been one of the most consistent kickers in the league.

In Green Bay when a player scores a touchdown, he gets to do a "Lambeau Leap" which is them basically just jumping into the stands to celebrate with the fans. However, Crosby, being a kicker, doesn't really have too many opportunities in a career where he could score a touchdown, thus no Lambeau leap.

That was until he lined up for a game winner against the Lions last season and got his moment. In the closing seconds with essentially a chip shot field goal to win the game, Crosby stepped up and knocked it down as time expired.

He then ran toward the stands, took his leap and got to experience the feeling he had been waiting for his whole career.

It was nice to be able to see a player who has contributed so much to the franchise over the years get a moment like that. Here's to hoping he gets a few more chances before his playing days are over.
