Move over QBs, these punters with Idaho and BYU ties can pull off a trick shot, too

Trick shots from quarterbacks have become their own viral sensation, from USC’s Sam Darnold to Georgia’s Jacob Eason, they’re all the rage, even earning a story focusing on “8 dope aquatic trick shot videos by college quarterbacks” by SB Nation.

But punters are people, too.

Former Idaho punter Austin Rehkow, now a rookie with the Buffalo Bills, tweeted a video showing his brother, Ryan, punting a football from the dock at Hauser Lake in northern Idaho to Rehkow, catching it while on a jet ski.

After Austin catches it, Ryan takes a leap into the lake while Austin holds up the ball in celebration.

Austin Rehkow was a kicker and punter at Idaho, finishing in the top seven nationally in punting each of his first three seasons with the Vandals. He signed as an undrafted free agent with Buffalo in April and has turned some heads in offseason work. Ryan Rehkow signed in February to play at BYU, but will first take a two-year church mission.
