30.4 yards per punt
35-50 yards. 50 is a tremendous boot. So the farther the better :)
About 45 yards per punt, and the average hang time would be right around 4.5 seconds. Therefore, the punt team would need to travel a yard per 0.1 seconds to reach the punt returner by the time he catches it.
from the line of scrimmage to where it is recovered/goes out of bounds
Highest average punt in length record was set in 1997 at 40.5 yards. Lowest was set in 1957 at 34.8 yards. 2004 was 39.9. NCAA does not record "hang-time" as far as I know. Probably a little over 4 seconds.
A punt attempt can be made on any down.

He averaged 28.7 yards on kickoff returns and 18.7 yards on punt returns. In the American Football League, that was Bill Thompson of the 1969 Denver Broncos with a 28.5 yard kickoff return average and a 11.5 yard punt return average.

A punt in football tends to be when the football is hit with the toes, rather then the inside of the foot or the laces of the boot. Punt is sometimes used to describe hitting the ball very hard and out of control. 'punt it' upfield, rather then pass it upfield. Punt also is a slang term for putting a bet on. 'having a punt on the horses'
A team would decide to punt the football in their final down. They would punt the ball to relinquish the ball if the team is struggling to win the game.
