The Art of Downing a Punt…By Iowa Punter Connor Kornbrath (Video)
We’re pretty sure they don’t practice this.
During their 27-16 victory over the Northern Iowa Panthers, Hawkeye punter Connor Kornbrath kicked the ball away. It was not his best, travelling only 25 yards (his average is 36) beyond the line of scrimmage, the Hawkeye 49 .
Now, for the good part. Upon hitting the ground, the punt took a crazy bounce, shooting back past the cover team only to be downed by Kornbrath himself at the Panther 40 – an 11 yard net!
