Yes, a punter does.


They can but rarely do. A punt is not a dropkick. A dropkick involves letting the ball hit the ground and kicking it on the bounce.

How do you drop kick an American football?

You drop kick an American Football by letting the football touch the ground just before you kick it. You hold the football with the laces up, the point out, and the football about waist high. You drop the ball so that it lands on a flat part just behind the point between two seams. It touches the ground a split second before you kick it. The objective is to kick it between the goal posts. A drop kick scores an extra point or a field goal. Thus, a player can be standing on the 10 yard line after a touchdown. He can look at the defense. If they are set up to try to block the kick, he can try to pass the ball for 2 points. If they are set up to defend against the pass, he can drop kick for one. He can be on the 30 yard line. If the opposition is in one defense, he can drop kick for a field goal, otherwise he can punt to put them near the goal, or even try to pass for a first down. If he is good, the drop kick can be an effective weapon.
