Punting situation

Rockford's Rusty Nelson saw the question about punting a football.

"With a nasty case of tendonitis in my shoulder, punting is the only way for me to get a football any distance in the air or down the field. That reminds me of a time I was home from college, playing around with my younger brother, Monty, who was in junior high school in Thomson, Georgia.

"He had a classmate over. And with a weak arm even then, I was soon punting the ball back and forth with the two youngsters. It is no longer embarrassing to recall that both of those kids could out-pass and out-punt me.

"They went on to play together on four undefeated football teams (JV and varsity). Monty could have punted for most high school teams, but his friend seemed especially suited for that chore. His name is Ray Guy."
