There are only a few positions in sports where you can say a player only has “one job”. One of those positions is punter. It’s pretty simple. You punt the ball on fourth down.
In their matchup against Iowa, Wyoming freshman punter Tim Zaleski was brought into the game for one of his seven punts. He clearly saw the rush coming at him because he had a bad drop of the ball and then flat out whiffed on the punt.

When you’re a punter, you don’t have a lot of opportunities for highlights but hopefully this young kid can shake off this embarrassing gaff in his first college game. He probably took some of the pressure off the rest of his team, most notably potential first round quarterback Josh Allen, because the whole team was underwhelming in their 24-3 loss.
