Long Snapping Lesson with James Ring

By: Long Snapping Coach Kyle Stelter

Today I met up with James Ring of The Blake High School in MN for our long snapping lesson. James has been improving on his long snapping since the first day we met. At first James had issues with flexibility which limited his ability to get into a proper long snapping stance. After weeks and weeks of flexibility training James came in today being the most flexible I have seen him yet!

We focused today's long snapping lesson on getting into a better stance, and leg lock. James is extremely close to getting perfect leg lock while long snapping however he is still getting a slight hop into his leg drive instead of locking and sliding.

Long Snapping Lesson with Jordan Winegar

By: Long Snapping Coach Kyle Stelter

Today I met up with Jordan Winegar and his father Nate for a long snapping lesson. Jordan has been coming to long snapping lessons for a couple months now and is steadily improving. As a long snapping coach, I know that everyone learns at a different level and that if I teach something to a student one way, it might not work as well with another student. With that said, I am constantly finding new ways to explain my long snapping drills and modify them with different students in mind.

Super Bowl Champion Long Snapper Morgan Cox; Interview with STU

By: Long Snapping Coach Kyle Stelter

Special Teams University was able to catch up with Super Bowl Champion long snapper Morgan Cox of the Baltimore Ravens for an interview.

Q: What is your earliest recollection of snapping a ball?

A: First time I snapped was at a rec league football practice when I was in 5th grade. First try wasn't very good but my dad had me try it again and I did better and was named the team's long snapper. From then on I just always raised my hand when my coaches asked at the beginning of the season who could long snap. I wasn't always first string.
