The primary muscles in your lower leg used in kicking a football are on opposite sides of your tibia, or shin bone. Your gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, collectively called your calf, contract to extend your ankle in a movement called plantar flexion, while the muscles on the front of your tibia -- tibialis anterior -- contracts to hold your ankle rigid. This type of muscle action is called an isometric contraction, which means that while these muscles are generating tension, they are not causing any actual joint movement but merely hold your ankle in place. Much of the power for kicking a football comes from the action of straightening your knee. This action, called knee extension, is the result of the contraction of the muscles on the front

Being an athlete takes a lot of practice and training your body physically. In the passage What Could Be Better Than A Touchdown, the author is trying to explain how if Folk would have missed the extra point, “the Vikings would have been able to tie the game with a touchdown drive and a two-point conversion.” This was possibly not the best choice for him, some people thought, but he did what he felt was right. He learned this way; he was trained this way.
