Another Feature Story on Texas Snapper Nate Boyer

About the Blog

In a blog post last September, I mentioned the inspirational story of the long snapper at the University of Texas, Nate Boyer.  The Longhorns snapper has a truly amazing history, from not having played high school football, to being a veteran of the Army Green Berets, to first learning how to snap after making the Texas squad as a walk-on.

Boyer’s tale also caught the attention of Jordan Conn of Grantland.com.  Conn published a detailed feature story this week on Boyer, who is now 32 years old.  Although snapping is just a small component of the bigger picture with Boyer, it is a reminder of the tremendous character and dedication that are common at the snapping position.
