The greatest placekicker in PCC football history, Mike Lansford put on a kicking show in helping the 1977 Lancers win the Junior Rose Bowl, the state, and national championships. Lansford set school single-season records for most points by a kicker (85) and most field goals (15 in just 20 atempts). He was 40-for-41 on extra point attempts. Named JC All-American honorable mention, Lansford kicked a clutch late field goal that gave PCC a 24-21 win over College of the Sequoias in the Potato Bowl state title game. The Lancers went 11-1 and finished off the year by routing Jones County (Mississippi), 38-9, in the JRB. At the next level, Lansford set a Pac-10 Conference record by making all 71 of his extra points attempts in two seasons at the University of Washington. After being selected by the New York Giants in the 12th Round of the 1980 NFL Draft, Lansford didn't catch on with a team until reinventing himself by becoming a barefoot kicker. He joined the Los Angeles Rams in 1982 and went on to a successful 9-year pro career. Lansford made 15 game-winning FGs and was named to the NFL All-Pro Team in 1989. He finished as the then Rams all-time leading scorer with 789 points.
