At 26 years old, Dane Roy was working at Peter’s Ice Cream in Melbourne, Australia, when he stumbled upon the opportunity to participate in a “longest kick” contest, ending in a final showdown at the 2015 Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final. Roy won the final contest with an 81-yard (73-meters) punt that would ultimately change his life. As part of his prize, he earned a chance to work with renowned punting coach Nathan Chapman of Prokick Australia, and when Tom Herman – then head coach at the University of Houston – came calling for a punter, Chapman didn’t hesitate to recommend the booming boot of Dane Roy. This is the Dane Roy Story. Music courtesy of Lloyd Spiegel.
