Central Michigan Punter Tries To Make Tackle, Gets Knocked Out (GIF)

Central Michigan punter KO

Punters aren’t generally thought of as being skilled at defensive play.  That’s why they’re punters. But Central Michigan punter Ron Coluzzi tried to break free of that stereotype during Saturday’s game against Purdue. And like most attempts to exit your comfort zone, this one ended in painand humiliation.

Coluzzi figured he’d try to tackle Purdue’s Frankie Williams during a first quarter punt return, and for his trouble he got completely leveled by Williams. Even worse (for Coluzzi, anyway) is that Coluzzi was injured during the play and wasn’t able to return to the game. Central Michigan did manage to recover, though, beating the Boilermakers by a score of 38-17.

If you’re looking for encouragement to stick to what you’re good at and not try anything new, consider the GIF below of Central Michigan punter Ron Coluzzi getting bulldozed by Frankie Williams to be a metaphor for your life. That should do the trick.
