He was Mr. Automatic from anywhere inside the 50 yard line (the goal posts were at the end zone line back then)…Jim Bakken was a four time Pro-bowl selection the the 1960’s..once kicked 7 field goals in one game…and was selected by the Professional Football Hall of Fame¬†voters to the All-Decade team in both the 60’s and 70’s. With over 1,000 points scored, he is the leading scorer in Football Cardinal’s history. Here he boots one against the New York Giants at Yankee Stadium in 1970.
