Max was undergoing testing by the NFL for damage done by concussions. His brain is being donated to doctors doing research on CTE.

Couple neat things. He played QB in high school. When he tried to walk on at Carolina, Coach Carlen told him he needed a kicker and that was the only was he'd make the team. Max hadn't played kicker until he walked on at Carolina. Also, his father was the founder of the FCA.

Also, he holds the South Carolina single-game punting average record at 47 yards per punt in a game vs. Ole Miss on Oct. 21, 1978.

You had probably the two best punters in all of college football on the field that day. Ole Miss had Jim "Thunderfoot" Miller. You young farts probably never heard of him but he kicked barefooted & was unbelievable. Played many years in the NFL like Max. Kicked the most incredible punt I've ever seen against us in 1977. 82 yards with a hang time of about 5 min.

I saw that.

Kinda odd that a kicker would go through the concussion protocol, unless he played other positions in practice.

Probably just a function of a very long career, very little, or no, protocol for concussion diagnosis, no emphasis on protecting the head, less effective head gear, etc. Over the course of his career, he likely took quite a few shots. Rick Sanford was a college teammate & says he's having issues with memory etc. Different situation, I know because Rick took a lot more shots, but that stuff was absolutely not taken seriously in those days.

But that was not Max who made that punt against Clemson. That was Jay Feltz in the 1979 game. 82 yards (I think) ball downed on the 1 yard line (I think). We still had to hold our breath as Billy Lott drove them all the way down the field. 13-9 good guys.
Thanks for the correction, for some reason I confused the two punters.

That was Jay Feltz in 1979, actually.

Edit: I see someone else mentioned this.

RIP, Max.

I remember Runager's first Monday Night game. When he got a closeup after a long punt, he said 'Hey South Carolina!'.

I remember that game well. Feltz made that punt from just a few yards from our goal line. CU's much vilified QB (the called Him Billy Run-A-Lot) drove them down the field, but our guys held and took over on downs.
