He is the first known player in NFL history to attempt and score on a fair catch kick. The kick was made on November 26, 1933, in a win against the visiting Green Bay Packers. The 30-yard kick was also the shortest fair catch kick in NFL history. Only five people, including Strong, have made successful fair catch kick attempts in the NFL. Strong is also believed to be the second player (after Mose Kelsch) to have devoted an entire season to placekicking; his 1939 season with the Giants had him playing very little outside of kicks.
