It's late. I can't remember his name. Aj Trapasso? I want sleep. Whatever. Best punt ever and he didn't even make the team.

Edit, now that I'm "awake"

In his first professional appearance during the Hall of Fame Game on August 9, 2009, Trapasso ran a fake punt 40 yards for a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills.[1] Later in the same game, he purposely ran backwards into the endzone, resulting in a safety, but running the clock out to end the game.

He made the news for hitting the scoreboard at Jerry World with a punt too. All during the same preseaon.

High and tight boo boo

I remember they spent a lot of time talking about the construction of the stadium, and things of that nature afterwards. Not much mention of the punter, or the leg that could do such a thing.

That block looked painful.

I remember that...

i believe Trapasso allegedly ran around a 4.4. That's really scootin for a punter.

Wasn't he the holder for the NC game vs Miami and didn't we try a fake with him and not make it?

I could be wrong but it sounds sorta right lol

Mac..yeah

That was Andy Groom, who was a pretty good athlete in his own right.  But that fake was doomed from the start.

That took a hell of a lot of guts. If just one of those three guys coming in unblocked noticed that he held onto the football they could have literally destroyed AJ. Thank god that he played it off so wonderfully and had everyone going for the block. Nice wheels too btw. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

Eh, 1st or 2nd preseason game, it was no real risk

I'm not talking about the guts to make the call, I meant the guts showed by AJ to stand in there as long as he did with those guys bearing down on him.

I was hoping we would see more of those while he was at OSU because I believe he was an all-state running QB in high school for Pickerington.  He's clearly more athletic than most punters would be.

Yeah, starting running back for Pick North, which is the good school (sorry Pick Central folks)

Cardale Jones. Cardale Jones! CARDALE JONES!!

Running back and punter for Pickerington Central HS, not North. He also kicked a few field goals. Could have played college ball as a running back but not at OSU.

I still laugh every time I watch that play. Jeff Fisher drew up a good one that day. Perfect execution!!!!!!!!!!
