Former NFL kicker Tom Dempsey, who played in the NFL despite being born without toes on his kicking foot and made a record 63-yard field goal, died late Saturday while struggling with complications from the coronavirus,  his daughter said. He was 73.

I was watching his famous kick live.

May you rest in peace, Mr. Dempsey.

A record-setting achievement for anyone. May he RIP.

Was there ANOTHER kicker who also had the same affectation (affection)? Dempsey's story seems to have dusted up some very old cobwebs in my brain about someone else. 

A Hawaiian kicker, I'm thinking?

I don't know, @amoLucia. Very well could be.

I am dumbstruck by all the people dying from COVID-19. Every day the list grows longer. So, so many gone in a flash.

amoLu, I believe the word you were looking for was 'affliction'?
