Take a good look, because you may never see this again.
In a Division III game between Heidelberg University (Tiffin, Ohio) and John Carroll University (University Heights, Ohio) on Saturday, Heidelberg punter Austin Baker registered a touchback on a kick from his own 5-yard line.
Yes, you read that right, his own 5-yard line — which means his punt went 95 yards.
We’ll write it again for effect. His punt went 95 yards.
Don’t believe us? Well, take a look.

The punt was so impressive it broke Division III’s previous record by four yards. The previous record was set by Gunnar Rastenburg of Maranatha Baptist in 2014.
