Where Are They Now? Rubio Long Snapper Brendan Lopez

NCAA FOOTBALL: OCT 16 Oregon State at WashingtonFor the next installment of “Where Are They Now?” we venture to Seattle, WA (Go Hawks!) to hear from Rubio Long Snapper Brendan Lopez. Brendan was a top Long Snapper for Rubio Long Snapping in 2007. He started off as a preferred walk-on to Michigan but came back to University of Washington and was put on full scholarship!

Check out what has been going on with Rubio Long Snapper Brendan Lopez….

1.  What is your current occupation?  I am currently in my last year at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. I will complete my training in June 2016 and pursue further speciality training in periodontics. I am also a Rubio Long Snapping staff member for the Seattle, WA area.

2. Where do you live? Seattle, WA.

3. Married/ Kids? Nooooooo

4. What is your fondest memory of your time playing college football? Spending time with my teammates. Whether is was during off season workouts, fall camp, traveling to away games or celebrating after a big win, the best part of college football were the friends and relationships that came from it. 

5. If you could give ONE bit of advice to the current Rubio Long Snappers, what would it be? Be patient, enjoy the process and have a good life balance. Maintaining other areas of your life outside of football is very important. Don’t forget about friendships outside of football and focus on your education. Have a plan for after college and use football to help you get there. 

6. If you could give ONE bit of advice to the current Rubio Long Snapping PARENTS, what would it be? Never want something more than your kid does. 

7. When was the last time you snapped a ball and for what reason? Vegas XXVI. Next one will be XXVII.

 9. Any regrets during college? Something you wish you had done or maybe hadn’t? Aim lower on my first snap at BYU. Sailing it for a safety with my parents in the stands was pretty embarrassing. 

10.   What tremendous thing have you been a part of or experienced since you graduated? Celebrating in the streets of downtown Seattle after the Seahawks won Super Bowl 48. That was tremendous.
