2011 Countdown: #39 Tom Pomarico

2011 Countdown: #39 Tom Pomarico

July 23, 2011
Tom Pomarico (#91)

Name: Tom Pomarico
Height: 6’4″
Weight: 236 lbs.
High school: Lumen Christi High School in Jackson, MI
Position: Long snapper
Class: Redshirt senior
Jersey number: #91
Last year: I didn’t rank any long snappers.  Pomarico started all 13 games and made 2 tackles in coverage.

Pomarico might even be ranked too low here.  He’s been the starting long snapper for two seasons, and I can’t remember a single botched snap in that time.  It generally seems to be an assumption that extra point and punt snaps will be handled cleanly, but that’s not the case for every team.  Good snaps are expected.  Bad snaps can be devastating.

Prediction: Starting long snapper

    Good point with this one Magnus. With all the struggles of the field goal unit the last few years, we often forget just how good the actual snapping portion of special teams has been in that time. Good ranking.
