Ohio State Snapper Helps Team to Victory

One of the big college football games last week may have turned on the role of the snapper.  Ohio State’s young snapper Bryce Haynes played a key, but subtle, role in drawing a rare defensive holding call on a punt in the second quarter against Penn State last Saturday.

In college, a snapper must be given one second to get his head up after a snap and before he can be contacted.  In this case, Haynes was hit immediately by a Penn State player after a punt snap and it resulted in the Buckeyes keeping the ball and scoring a touchdown before the half to tie the game.
