The man known as “Kickalicious” is back with another trick-shot video and an unwavering pursuit of landing a spot on an NFL team.

The Associated Press reports that Havard Rugland has released another YouTube video showing him making kicks in Norway.

Rugland’s first video, released in 2012, earned him notice and got him signed by the Detroit Lions in 2013. He was released late in training camp that year.

His recent video, “Kickalicious Part 2,” is sponsored by Pepsi Max.

Rugland told The AP that the video “is a huge upgrade on both kicks and the locations compared to the first video.”
