The quality of a punt is dependent on three things: distance, hang time, and direction.
Jack Fox displayed all three in Week 2 of the NFL season.
- Distance: the NFL Average in 2022 (“NFL”) is 47.6 yards, but focus on hitting it 40.
- Hang time: NFL is 4.50 seconds, and most high schoolers can hang it 4.40 seconds.
- Direction: NFL data shows that the closer the punt hits to the sideline, the lower the return yards.
