Iowa State kicker Cole Netten was named to the All-Big 12 team this year, after going an outstanding 16-of-17 on field goal attempts. Netten’s 2016 season is even more impressive when you consider that he struggled in 2015 (14-of-19 on field goal attempts) and almost lost the Cyclones’ kicking job.

Netten surely worked very hard to improve his kicking game, and on Wednesday, he credited his haters for the motivation.

Check out this amazing video montage Netten put together that features tweets hating on him in 2015, followed by tweets showing his 2016 accomplishments:

That is beautifully done, Cole.
