Reid Ferguson teaches Sal Capaccio how to long snap

November 13, 2018 - 1:07 pm

A lot of people think they can snap a football between their legs right on the money, just like an NFL longsnapper.  Looks easy, doesn't it?  Well, it's not, of course.  Like any skill, there's a certain technique that goes into shooting the ball between your legs at least ten yards while bending over and looking upside down.

I asked Bills' longsnapper Reid Ferguson to show me what goes into the art of snapping the ball back to the punter and then tried both catching a few of those snaps and snapping it myself.

Let's just say it didn't go as well as I had hoped.
