Luca Congi (born June 15, 1983 in Waterloo, Ontario) is a professional Canadian football punter/placekicker for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. He was drafted 12th overall by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the 2006 CFL Draft. He played CIS football at Simon Fraser University for the Simon Fraser Clan.

Professional careerEdit

Saskatchewan RoughridersEdit

Congi was drafted out of college by Saskatchewan (12th overall) in 2006, and he won the position of punter/placekicker in training camp. He replaced the Roughriders longtime franchise kicker Paul McCallum, who left Saskatchewan to join the BC Lions as a free agent in 2006. After the 2007 season, Congi was no longer the primary punter for Saskatchewan, with that role going to Jamie Boreham followed by Louie Sakoda in 2010. Instead, he handled all of Saskatchewan's placekicking duties. He was released following the 2011 season after Congi spent most of that season recuperating from injury while Christopher Milo filled in for him and ultimately replaced him.[1]

His unorthodox kicking habit has been noticed by many sportscasters. When he kicks the ball for a field goal, he does not look at where it is going, but instead looks at the ground only to look up when the ball is through the uprights.

Hamilton Tiger-CatsEdit

He was signed by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on March 23, 2012.[2]
