Utah punter Tom Hackett won his second consecutive Ray Guy award on Thursday night, and the nation’s top collegiate punter chatted with ESPN’s Chris Fowler at the ceremony. In the interview, the Australian gave a little insight into why he chose to be a punter in American football over playing Aussie Rules Football.
Hackett admits that he has the soul of a fat man and his cardiovascular endurance is pretty limited.
“I’m running 21 yards on and 21 yards off, and that’s about all I got for you.”
If Hackett would really like to indulge in his desire to pack on the pounds, we know a guy who is willing to trade a pretty sweet Royal Crown vending machine in exchange for ticket to Utah’s bowl game against in-state rivals BYU.
