2018 Season Countdown: #106 Matt Baldeck

2018 Season Countdown: #106 Matt Baldeck


May 11, 2018

Name: Matt Baldeck
Height: 6’0″
Weight: 210 lbs.
High school: Lewiston (ID) Lewiston
Position: Long snapper
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #44
Last year: I did not rank Baldeck. He redshirted.

I know this isn’t a sexy pick for the #106 player on the countdown, and you all were hoping for something sexy. Nope. I’m picking a backup long snapper. Michigan’s starting long snapper, Camaron Cheeseman, returns from last season, and Baldeck is in the running to be the #2 guy, along with Andrew Robinson. It’s not uncommon for a team to use two snappers on special teams throughout the season, whether due to ineffectiveness, injury, or different skill sets, so I’m putting Baldeck here on the chance that something happens to Robinson.

Prediction: Backup long snapper

    You couldn’t possibly be more wrong here.

    The likely third string long snapper should be dead last on this list. You are off ten full spots. What were you thinking?

    Just warming up a little for when we get this thing swinging.

      Thunder is lying in wait, he ain’t no dummy. I think he is messin’ with the predictable poster when he adds to #107 Bush “and fullback is a spot that can be capably manned by walk-ons”.

    When a snapper isn’t remembered for starting, he probably did a good job. Cheeseman started every game last year.
