i'd try to learn to make it bounce backward or to the side. forward bounce doesn't mean much. it's only relevant once in a while. practice punting after catching a snap. practice getting the punt off quickly

I wish you all my luck because your going to need it.
Dude's looking to be a punter, not a middle linebacker.

Exactly, you don't need to squat 400lbs to punt a ball 50 yards.

Marmac is right, I can't remember the last time I saw a punter do one.

Sir i am a freshmen studying at a college that competes in the mid american league. I have practically no experience of American football, but i have played soccer for all my life, recently i was introduced to punting by one my friends and i did quite well at it. I regularly punted over 50 yards and my longest punt was about 63 yards and hangtime was about 4.3 seconds. Sir i have no idea how to get to the college team and do you believe that i can make to the team on the basis of the above information.

Patiently waiting for your reply,
