Auburn Kicker Daniel Carson Is Disappointed That His Mom Couldn't Land Kate Upton's Number On A Flight

Wayne Gretzky (and The Office's Michael Scott) once said that "you miss 100-percent of the shots you don't take." Clearly, Auburn kicker Daniel Carson lives by that mantra. His mother sat near supermodel Kate Upton on a flight, where apparently they talked about the SEC special teamer. While Upton is already dating an athlete—Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander—Carson wasn't afraid to throw his name into the ring. That is, if his mom could seal the deal and get Upton's number. Unfortunately, she let her son down.

">@KateUpton on her flight. They talked about me apparently. She couldn't close and pull a number tho... Poor wingmanship Mom

Better luck next time, Daniel. Maybe an Iron Bowl-winning kick could help him get another shot at it.
