Coaching (LS) Tyler Schmitt

On Thursday, I worked in Scottsdale Arizona with San Diego State Long Snapper Tyler Schmitt. Tyler is training and preparing himself to go to the NFL Combine next week in Indianapolis. We worked on basic fundamentals and introduced him to a couple of new drills. He is already an excellent snapper and is only going to get better.

We worked to refine his field goal snaps. I showed him how to snap perfect laces to the holder. We also spent time on his long snapping technique. We worked on three things: 1) Snap, drop & Protect, 2) the Line Drill and 3) the Balls and Strikes Drill.

Tyler is a student of the game and picked up everything very quickly. He was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with him in the future and also watching him play on future Sunday afternoons.
