Week Fifteen in Review

Week Fifteen is done and included a rare “triple play” of blocks, as the Eagles blocked an extra point, field goal and punt against the Giants.  Cardinals snapper Aaron Brewer returned to action and did well in his return from a broken wrist.  Thomas Hennessy of the Jets. who missed most of last week’s game with a concussion. was able to snap this week.

Phil Steele continues to be one of the few college football writers to show love to long snappers.  As part of his support for the snapping position, Steele has just released his All-American team that has 1st-4th teams, including snappers.  Tanner Carew of Oregon, who will also play in the Senior Bowl, is the 1st team snapper, followed by Wyatt Pfeifer of Western Michigan, Ike Powell of Auburn, who is also a Senior Bowl invite, and the 4th team snapper is Wesley Horky of Oklahoma.

This week, the East-West Shrine Game, which has not typically invited snapping specialists to its college all-star game, changed course and added snappers Drew Scott (Kansas State) and Hunter Bradley (Mississippi State).

Four snappers, Andrew DePaola (Bears), Clark Harris (Bengals), Nick Sundberg (Redskins) and Tyler Ott (Seahawks), recorded solo tackles in punt coverage this week.
