LSU long snapper Blake Ferguson wins national award
Long snappers are often unappreciated, only getting noticed when a snap goes horribly wrong.
However, LSU long snapper Blake Ferguson was one of the best this year, and he got some national recognition on Wednesday night.
As you can see below, the David Binn Award, which is given annually to the best college long snapper of the year, announced via Twitter that Ferguson was this year’s winner:

Ferguson has been an iron man for the Tigers during his career, handling almost every snap that needed to be made.
He’s certainly deserving of this award, and he’ll still have his redshirt senior season next year to try to defend the honor.
