Philip Doyle was the starting kicker for the Alabama Crimson Tide from 1987 to 1990 and set numerous records at the school. In his final year at Alabama, he went 24 of 29 on field goals, and 78 of 105 over his career. Doyle was not selected in the 1990 draft, but signed as a free agent with the New York Giants. He’d later be waived before the regular season.

Philip joined the Birmingham Fire of the World League in 1992. As the Fire struggled with getting in the endzone, Doyle provided the team consistency in the kicking game. He’d end up leading all World League scorers with 64 points. Doyle was directly responsible for kicking field field goals that secured the tie against London, and the game winning kick that ultimately sent the Fire to the playoffs (over the Ohio Glory).
