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.
The average highschool punt average Hang time is about 3.65-3.90 Anything over 4 would not be considered average.
Add the distance of all punts together and divide by the number of punts.
30.4 yards per punt
35-50 yards. 50 is a tremendous boot. So the farther the better :)
from the line of scrimmage to where it is recovered/goes out of bounds
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'
Hang time is generally a statistic used with punters and is the number of seconds elasped from the time the ball is punted (leaves the punter's foot) until the time the ball is caught by the punt returner. The longer the hang time is the better chance the punting team has to run down field and cover the punt successfully. A hang time under 4 seconds is considered poor, 4 to 4.25 seconds average, and over 4.25 seconds as good.
In all of American professional football, that was Chuck Fenenbock of the 1946 Los Angeles Dons of the All American Football Conference (AAFC). 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. In the National Football League, that was Mel Gray of the 1991 Detroit Lions with a 25.8 yard average on kickoff returns and a 15.4 yard average on punt returns.
A punt attempt can be made on any down.
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.
The NFL minimum for scoreboards is 85 feet. So I would presume the avg NFL punt is less than 85 feet, guestimation is 75feet.

At least 90 feet for sure since the Dallas Cowboys screen was hit by a football.
Traditionally speaking one punts on a free kick (usually after a safety), because your average punt has a longer hang time than a placed kick. This allows the kicking team to get into position to tackle the ball carrier.
kick the ball with your foot
up punt the ball on the very side of your foot
It's called a punt
