John McLeod "Chip" Lohmiller (born July 16, 1966) is a former professional American football placekicker in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, and the St. Louis Rams. He played college football at the University of Minnesota and high school football at Woodbury Senior High School.

College careerEdit

Lohmiller played college football at the University of Minnesota.[1] During his tenure there, he was named to the All-Big Ten Conference first-team in 1986, as well as second-team in 1987.[2] By the end of his college career, Lohmiller became Minnesota's all-time leading scorer with 268 points (since broken by Dan Nystrom in 2002.)[3]

Professional careerEdit

Lohmiller was drafted in the second round (55th overall) of the 1988 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, where he played from 1988 to 1994. He then played for the New Orleans Saints (1995), and the St. Louis Rams (1996).

Notable momentsEdit

  • On September 9, 1991 in a Monday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys, Lohmiller became the first player to kick four field goals of 45 yards or longer in a single game. The Redskins won that game 33-31 after trailing 21-10 in the 2nd quarter. That same season, he also kicked a field goal in a 16-13 overtime win against the Houston Oilers and two fourth quarter field goals against the then Phoenix Cardinals, breaking a 14-14 tie, which gave the Redskins a 20-14 win after trailing 14-0 at the half. Another game decided by Lohmiller's foot was against the New York Giants in which he provided the final four points (one PAT and one field goal), after the game was tied at 13-13, in which the Skins trailed 13-0 at the half.
  • In Super Bowl XXVI 1991 against Buffalo, he kicked two field goals late in the game that put the game out of reach for the Bills in a 37-24 victory. That season, he led the league in scoring with 149 points (more than the entire Indianapolis Colts, who had 143) and earned a Super Bowl ring.

PersonalEdit

He is currently the head coach for the Pequot Lakes High School football team in Pequot Lakes, Minnesota, where under his coaching skills they advanced to their first state appearance in school history in 2009.[1][4]
