Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee leads the NFL with the longest average punt length of 51.8 yards. A high school punter in the state the Colts play in nearly doubled that length.
McAfee’s longest punt on Sunday during the Colts’ 29-23 win over the Chicago Bears, the punter launched a 74-yard boot down field. That was 18 yards shorter than Frankton senior Jack Rogers.
Frankton High School is 50 miles Northeast of Lucas Oil Stadium in Indiana. That’s where Rogers works on consistently averaging longer punts then McAfee like this one.

End zone to end zone thanks to a couple bounces and Rogers ended up with a nice and tidy 92-yard blast. That’s right, Rogers’ punt sailed 70-yards through the air and just shy of the goal line for a total of 92-yards. 92!
The missile occurred during Frankton’s game against Mississinewa and sadly for Frankton resulted in a comeback. However for Rogers, it’s another play he can tack onto the highlight reel and send to colleges.
Over his career at Frankton, the senior has averaged more than 43-yards per punt with 20 landing inside the 20-yard line.
