South Carolina punter has awesome trick shot (Video)


Being a punter isn’t the easiest job in the world. You sit on the sidelines for most of the game, especially if you play for the Denver Broncos, before being called on to boot a rocket down the field and change field position for your team. However, it does come with it’s perks.

During practices, you can spend your time learning how to do cool tricks and that is exactly what South Carolina Gamecocks punter Patrick Fish has been working on.

Fish recently posted a video on the social media site Vine, that shows him successfully pulling off a pretty sweet trick shot.

Unlike some of the trick shot videos out there, this one has no editing and it shows the raw footage of Fish attempting the kick. He may not have nailed it on the first try, but he was able to record a successful attempt that deserves to go viral.

At first it looks like Fish is going to go for a rainbow style soccer set up, but he quickly spins the ball with his feet and the ball perfectly tees up.

From there, Fish nails the ball right through the uprights from about 26 yards out. Mission accomplished.

Check out the video of the trick shot below and remember, punters are people too.

    Pretty cool. He sees duty as the holder for our kicker, Elliott Fry. Fish Fry. What are the odds. He’s also about 1/2 again as big as Fry, who weighs 155 pounds, allegedly.
