Rule number one as a punter: know your role. You’re not there to magically become the star of your team. You’re not there to slay the vast amount of women who throw themselves at NFL players, they’re reserved for the big money guys. Most of all, for your own safety, you should never, and I mean never, land a cheap shot on an opposing defender who is twice your size and possesses three times your level of athleticism.

Well Johnny Hekker, what have you learned? Know your role and abide by it.
