Yesterday was an important day for long snappers as the Watch List for the inaugural Patrick Mannelly Award Presented By Bernie’s Book Bank was announced.
A total of 25 senior FBS snappers were on the initial list, although additions are possible before the 10 semi-finalists are announced on Monday, November 16th.
Three finalists will be selected on Monday, November 23rd, with the winner selected in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, December 14th.
I am honored to be one of the founders of this long overdue award, along with Patrick Mannelly himself and Chris Rubio.
Below is a list of all 25 Watch List snappers.
