Here’s a Video of a Punter Catching Deion Sanders From Behind on a Punt Return

Hunter Smith had one of the easiest jobs in America for about a decade as the punter for the Colts while Peyton Manning was their quarterback. Stand on the sidelines while Peyton leads the team on another scoring drive? ALRIGHT, SOUNDS GOOD. Here, Smith actually made a pretty memorable play by tracking down Deion Sanders on a punt return during a 1999 game and keeping him from scoring. That Herculean effort wouldn’t have been necessary if his punt had gotten more than 1.7 seconds of hang time. But what the hell, he probably needed to stretch his legs anyway to avoid deep vein thrombosis.
