Video of Wisconsin punter's freakish strength going viral
Usually, when someone thinks of a punter, it’s about how great they are at hang time or pinning a team deep in their own territory.
That’s not the case with Wisconsin punter Andy Vujnovich right now. He posted a video on his Twitter page of him starting to lift with two hands, before switching to just one hand for 30 seconds.
Thought I'd give the Turkish Get-Up a try. pic.twitter.com/5fg2NH4Lbx

Arnold Schwarzenegger would absolutely be proud of this if he were to see it.
Shortly after this video was posted, Bruce Feldman of The Athletic quote tweeted it and shared that he benches 395 pounds and broad jumped 10-7 /34.
This is #Wisconsin's punter, who benches 395, clocked a 4.00 seconds in the pro agility and broad jumped 10-7 /34. The Turkish Get-Up came up on the Freaks list yesterday. Sorry, Andy I should've had you higher than No. 87 on here: https://t.co/f1cp1fNg1n https://t.co/2X5AoZyCn5

As Feldman also says, he included him in his “2021 College Football Freaks list” story that went live on Monday for The Athletic (subscription required).
Even though this is extraordinary, Vujnovich is also a great punter on the field as well. He had 34 punts last season for the Badgers with an average of 41.7 yards a punt and a long of 60. His average NET yards for each punt was 38.8.
