One of the crazier plays of Saturday

Self-blocking a punt.

I’ve actually seen this happen before, more than 50 years ago, in an AFL All-Star game. Punter kicked one into his upback’s backside.

When I played Jr. High football, we did that one time. Also had the punter kick the ball over his own head.

That’s really hard to do!

We all thought it was basically impossible. Regular punter got hurt. Coach asked if anyone could punt. He tried. He never got to try again!

I am ashamed to say that I had that happen to me once when I was in junior high back before the earth cooled. I was the up back (mainly because I was the starting center and could not deep snap worth a flip) and got pushed back into our punter. That was my last game on the punt team.
