Sometimes in moments where there is little to celebrate, players have to find something that gives them a reason to find joy. That’s exactly what Bethune-Cookman’s 5-foot-4 punter Uriel Hernandez did on Saturday.

Despite trailing 38-3 against Nebraska, the senior punter went wild after he pinned a beautiful punt inside the five-yard line. Hernandez immediately went wild, pumping his fist, celebrating with a coach and shooting an arrow into the sky.

Pretty much everything has gone wrong for his team in this game, even in the sequences leading up to the punt on 4th-and-goal from the 39-yard line. Yet after his excellent punt, Hernandez made sure to celebrate his moment of excellence.

This is what makes college football great. A 5-foot-4 punter becoming beloved around the country for his spirit and celebration style.
