VOD: A profile on Northwestern specialists, hot tubbing and trick shots

Today’s Video of the Day comes from Northwestern because few teams need more positive press than these guys.

Northwestern’s specialists – long snapper Pat Hickey, punter Brandon Williams, and kicker Jeff Budzien (among others) – show off some trick shot magic, but the clip is actually a part of a longer video about Northwestern’s special teams.

Every week, Northwestern football’s YouTube page does a series called “The Hunt” which profiles a part of the football team. Last week, it was the specialists. You know, kickers, punters, holders, etc.

The original VOD was just going to be of the specialists performing a couple different trick shots, but the entire 5-minute profile on the group is worth a watch.

It features scooters, strange stretching poses and, of course, some group hot tubbing.

Northwestern might be on a downward spiral – losing four straight since GameDay showed up on its campus on Oct. 5 – but at least it’s still having a good time.
