Hayden Fry's first recruiting class included a baseball player: a star pitcher out of Waterloo East named Reggie Roby. Nothing about Reggie was small; at 6’4” and over 250 pounds he was built like a lineman. The same howitzer arm that got him drafted by the Cincinnati Reds out of high school made him a star quarterback for East High’s football team. As the team’s punter and kicker he was able to fire the ball long distances without even hopping on his plant foot to hit the ball with a little more power. Choosing football over baseball, Reggie moved 90 minutes south to join Hayden fry in rebuilding the Hawkeyes.

Have no idea who the guy was but he sounds like a beast.

Reggie was one hell of good punter. He'd boom those kicks and that ball would have damn good hang time.
Damn right! He kicked them so high, wind speed and direction had to be accounted for. If he kicked them any higher, then the rotation of the earth would've needed to be taken into account. Only punter in my memory that almost needed a ghillie suit and a trip to Benning for sniper school. Lol.
