VIDEO: UB long snapper going viral as trick shot master

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Often the Long Snapper role is an under the radar position on any football squad, but a good snapper can help cap off a successful drive.

Tasked with the role of delivering the ball on long snaps like punts or field goals, accuracy is key in the long snapper position. One UB long snapper has taken his accuracy to the next level.

Corbin Grassman, a sophomore long snapper at UB, brought the UB Bulls into the limelight after his cousin, and fellow UB teammate Tyler Grassman, posted two videos of trick shots on social media.

The two successful trick shots depict Grassman knocking a water bottle off a teammates head, and sinking a veritable three pointer from the third deck of the UB Bulls stadium.

ESPN went so far as to dub Grassman the “coolest long snapper we’ve ever seen.”
