It seems like there is another amazing story about a long snapper every few weeks. From high school, to college and the NFL, almost every long snapper seems to have a compelling element to their journey.
Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping informed me of another instance of a snapper overcoming an obstacle this week when he told me about Jake Munoz, a high school long snapper from Georgia. A rising senior, Munoz has been offered a full scholarship to Georgia State.
What makes Munoz’s story unusual is that he has a condition known as retinal core dystrophy that creates issues with his visual perception. Despite this, Munoz has enough snapping talent and ability to have earned a full ride.
