Future USC long snapper shows off skills in trick-shot video
By Zac Ellis
We’ve seen plenty of trick-shot mixtapes hit the web before, including Johnny Manziel’s famous highlight video. But the clip above is a bit different: It involves the typically unsung position of long snapper.
Zach Smith, an Atherton, Calif. native and the No. 2 long snapper in the class of 2013 according to ChrisSailerKicking.com, put his spin on the trick-shot video phenomenon. A preferred walk-on at USC, Smith snapped footballs into a basketball hoop, several trash cans and through a car. He also coolly knocked water bottles off peoples’ heads.
The video first emerged through Reddit’s college football forum.
