The NFL minimum for scoreboards is 85 feet. So I would presume the avg NFL punt is less than 85 feet, guestimation is 75feet.

At least 90 feet for sure since the Dallas Cowboys screen was hit by a football.

In all of American professional football, that was Chuck Fenenbock of the 1946 Los Angeles Dons of the All American Football Conference (AAFC). He averaged 28.7 yards on kickoff returns and 18.7 yards on punt returns. In the American Football League, that was Bill Thompson of the 1969 Denver Broncos with a 28.5 yard kickoff return average and a 11.5 yard punt return average. In the National Football League, that was Mel Gray of the 1991 Detroit Lions with a 25.8 yard average on kickoff returns and a 15.4 yard average on punt returns.

About 45 yards per punt, and the average hang time would be right around 4.5 seconds. Therefore, the punt team would need to travel a yard per 0.1 seconds to reach the punt returner by the time he catches it.

A punt in football tends to be when the football is hit with the toes, rather then the inside of the foot or the laces of the boot. Punt is sometimes used to describe hitting the ball very hard and out of control. 'punt it' upfield, rather then pass it upfield. Punt also is a slang term for putting a bet on. 'having a punt on the horses'

A punt attempt can be made on any down.

A team would decide to punt the football in their final down. They would punt the ball to relinquish the ball if the team is struggling to win the game.

Add the distance of all punts together and divide by the number of punts.

35-50 yards. 50 is a tremendous boot. So the farther the better :)

Highest average punt in length record was set in 1997 at 40.5 yards. Lowest was set in 1957 at 34.8 yards. 2004 was 39.9. NCAA does not record "hang-time" as far as I know. Probably a little over 4 seconds.

Ricky Anderson holds the record at Vanderbilt for the longest punt at 82 yards. This took place in 1984 in a football game against the Georgia Bulldogs.

Never . No one can go out of bounds and be the first one to touch the ball.

They punt it away, because they cant get 10 yards with the 4 downs they have, and dont want the other team to have an easy drive for a TD
