Connor Barth Celebrity Life
Born on April 11, 1986, Connor Barth is a retired American football kicker. He was born and raised in Arlington, Virginia, and his parents are Thomas and Susan Barth.
Barth started his football career at John T Hoggard High School from where he did his schooling.
As a junior, he also got the privilege to participate in U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Almost all recruiting agencies considered him as one of the best kickers when he came out of school.
He finished his school career with an impressive 75% kickoff rate. Not only that, but he also punted 42 times for a 38.2-yard average when playing as a punter.
Thanks to his outstanding performance in the first year, he was named an All-ACC member. He finished his first year with 4 of 18 field goals and 35 of 37 extra-point attempts.
As a sophomore, he was a little off-beat and didn't perform as expected. But he returned to his former glory in the third year. Barth became the only kicker in the country to have a perfect field-goal percentage.
As a senior, his performance continued to be top-class, and he gained the All-ACC honors from Rivals.com.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed Barth as an unrestricted free agent in 2008, but he couldn't compete with Nick Novak as a kicker and was released by the Chiefs on August 29, 2008. But the situation turned out to be dramatic, and Novak left the Chiefs.
Because of this, Barth was back in the franchise. The Chiefs waived Barth again on July 28, 2009, this time with a salary of $1.5 million. After the Kansas City Chiefs fired incumbent kicker Connor Barth in the summer of 2009, Succop got a chance at the role from week one.
The Buccaneers signed Barth to a $2.5 million contract on November 3, 2009, after firing Shane Andrus. He played in 6 NFL seasons for the Bucs from 2009 to 2014 and won many games for them.
During a game against Carolina Panthers, Barth recorded more than four field goals of 40 yards plus.
Only three players have achieved this feat in the history of the NFL. In the same season, he set another record for the Bucs by having more than 92% field goal percentage.
Barth missed the 2013 NFL season due to some injury, and the franchise decided to put him into the list of injured reserve.
During the 2013 offseason, the Bucs signed rookie Patrick Murray in place of Barth, and finally, on August 29, 2014, he was waived by the Buccaneers.
Barth then joined the Broncos in 2014 and played five games for the franchise before he was released on August 26, 2015. He played his last two NFL seasons for the Chicago Bears and won some games for the team.
Barth announced his retirement from the football world and became a real estate agent.
