    The dictionary has this
    to prod or push, esp. with something narrow or pointed, as a finger, elbow, stick, *etc.:to poke someone in the ribs.
    * or foot. in this case
    The writer keeps using words for different ways of kicking the football - poke is another one that does not imply much speed or force (just like tuck and tap do not imply speed) while the others imply speed or force (blaze, boom etc). You can usually find a meaning in the dictionary for each word if you keep these ideas in mind.
