Cowboys Kicker Brandon Aubrey Receives Key To City Of Plano

Aubrey graduated from Plano Senior High in 2013

Brandon Aubrey, once a standout soccer player at Plano Senior High and now a Dallas Cowboys kicker, was honored with a key to the city alongside Mayor John Muns. This recognition comes on the heels of Aubrey's successful debut season with the Cowboys.

May 22, 2024, was also proclaimed Brandon Aubrey Day by Mayor Muns. The ceremony took place at the Artcenter of Plano. 

“This is only the second one I’ve given out in my term,” Muns said when presenting the key. “And it is so well deserving.”

Graduating from Plano Senior High in 2013, Aubrey left a lasting mark as a soccer star. His journey continued at Notre Dame, where he showcased his skills as a defender, tallying 15 goals across 76 appearances over four years. Drafted 21st overall in Major League Soccer’s SuperDraft by Toronto FC in 2017, Aubrey embarked on a professional soccer career before transitioning to American football after one year.

In his debut NFL season, Aubrey achieved a remarkable series of milestones. He started by setting a new record with 36 consecutive field goals made and 10 successful field goals of 50-plus yards in a single season. 

His kickoffs were equally impressive, tallying a record-setting 99 touchbacks with a field goal percentage of 94.7%. Aubrey's impact extended beyond statistics as he etched his name in history by being the first player in the Super Bowl era to convert his first 10, 20 and 30 field goal attempts. However, his crowning achievements came in a memorable game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 10, 2023, where he not only became the first player to nail two 59-plus yard field goals in a single match but also kicked the longest first-quarter field goal at 60 yards. 

“Brandon, on behalf of the city of Plano, I want to extend our deepest congratulations on your phenomenal rookie season with the Dallas Cowboys,” Muns told Aubrey. “You made us all incredibly proud.”
