Video: An SID tries to return punts, and it does not go well


As a former SID myself, I can report the gap between Sports Information Directors and Division I athletes is about equal to the distance between the peak of Mount Everest and the bottom of the Marianas Trench. Western Illinois has confirmed that for all of us with their fall camp series #WHATSITLIKE.

The Leathernecks' communications staff has taken turns strapping on a GoPro camera and trying to duplicate what their athletes do on the field. One of them caught passes, another stared down opposing linebackers, and this time it's Kyle Bradt's turn to (attempt to) return punts.
