Buffalo News Profiles Garrison Sanborn

Most long snappers prefer their anonymous but critical role in the NFL.  To that end, snappers rarely seek or desire the media spotlight.  Perhaps the lone exception is the preseason stories that commonly focus on long snappers and their special place in football.

A recent story in the Buffalo News on snapper Garrison Sanborn is no exception.  The article notes Sanborn’s improvement as a snapper over the past few years and his constant desire to be perfect.  As part of that effort to achieve perfection, Sanborn notes that on punts he will aim for the NFL patch on his punter’s pants since his punter prefers to receive snaps on his right hip.  For field goals, Sanborn will pick a vein on his holder’s arm and aim for that area.
