Just put this on Twitter and couldn’t help but elaborate….
At some point, an average Long Snapper becomes a great one when they realize they can be as good as THEY want to be. You control yourself.
No matter how physically gifted you are, without the proper form and work ethic, you will never advance to the next level. No matter what level that may be.
Form is one thing. Having a solid attitude and believing you can do it makes you a complete package. Too many times I have seen a good Long Snapper stay just that….a good Long Snapper. Why did they not advance? Either they did not have the drive (working on form, drills, etc) or they did not believe they could do it. Coach bringing you down, parents not supportive, you are tired….suck it up. Get off your butt and MAKE YOURSELF the best. Make it happen. Stop making excuses. Do it. Done.
The great ones know they are great. Splash of cockiness in the Long Snapping world is accepted by me WHEN you can back it up and know how to toe the line. Are you hiding from a challenge (lessons, camps, events) or are you sticking your chest simply waiting for the next person/victim?
The great Long Snappers realize their potential, see it, grabs it and runs, no sprints, with it. Is that you?
