The incredible game came down to one last-second field goal from A&M senior kicker Seth Small. As Small lined up the 28-yard field goal attempt, his wife and family looked on (well, his mom could barely stand to open her eyes in nervousness) and went viral for their reaction to Small nailing his kick.
It was a moment that Small and his family will never forget.
Seth Small’s Family Reaction to Game-Winning Field Goal
Small’s wife, Rachel Small, is in the middle of the frame almost in tears throughout the video. She yells things like “Let’s go 47!” and “You got it babe!” Meanwhile, Seth’s mom can’t even stand to watch the kick.
Small’s kick sailed left but hooked just inside the upright. Rachel and his mom instantly dropped into tears in the video captured by 12th Man Productions’ Cam Worthy. The clip had more than four million views on Twitter as of posting.
Rachel then jumped the wall and rushed the field as did thousands of other Aggie fans.
Small’s field goal sealed an incredible 41-38 win for Texas A&M. With legends like Johnny Manziel on hand, new legends were born Saturday night at Kyle Field. Quarterback Zach Calzada, running back Isaiah Spiller and wide receiver Ainias Smith led the way for A&M against head coach Nick Saban’s team led by Bryce Young, Brian Robinson Jr. and Jameson Williams.
Yes, Aggies head coach Jimbo Fisher finally beat Saban (a first for his former assistants). And yes, the No. 1 team in the country lost on a game-winner to snap a 19-game winning streak.
But Seth Small’s family provided college football fans with an awesome, heartwarming moment that was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the 2021 NCAA season.
