When I think of famous speedreaders, I think of John Kennedy, Teddy Roosevelt, and Jimmy Carter. Presidents, not punters. But Chris Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings, is also a speedreader. Chris says he stumbled into punting, as his boyhood was defined by science fiction and fantasy literature, not by football. He was able to read a lot more Ray Bradbury books when he discovered speed reading. Chris estimates that it takes him 15 seconds to read a page of text.
