2009 Countdown: #41 The Long Snappers

2009 Countdown: #41 The Long Snappers


August 23, 2009
George Morales
With the departure of long-time starting long snapper Sean Griffin, Michigan needs a replacement. The person pictured above is George Morales, the only scholarship long snapper on the team.
Unfortunately for him (and that scholarship), Morales is reportedly third on the depth chart:
1. Tom Pomarico (RS Sophomore)
2. Curt Graman (Freshman)
3. George Morales (RS Freshman)
I’m not sure how the long snapping depth chart will play out, but Michigan fans have been spoiled in recent years with good play from the long snapper. Hopefully, that tradition can continue. Bad special teams snaps can often be the difference between a win and a loss. Considering that the scholarship long snapper is currently the third best at his position, I’m expecting the winner of that battle to turn out to be pretty good.

    I've seen George snap and he's well diserving of the scholarship at one point he and Tom were battling for the starting job unfortunately with the new coaching staff alot of politics are playing a role.
