Long Snapper the Secret to Alabama’s Success?

About the Blog

Alabama has been one of the most successful college football programs in the country and perhaps their recent tradition of scholarship long snappers may be a key element to their success.  Sam Borden of The New York Times suggests as much in his recent story discussing their newest long snapping recruit, Thomas Fletcher.

Fletcher will be a freshman next year and will likely replace senior Cole Mazza, who was the first Alabama snapper to get a full scholarship.  Fletcher, who is the top ranked snapper in the country, joins a long list of other top-rated recruits at Alabama for 2017.

Borden’s story does a nice job summarizing the importance of the snapper and their “self-critical” nature as “perfectionists.”
