Steve happened to get lucky picking his dates for One on One Lessons. Why? Jon Ryan (above photo) who is the punter for the Seattle Seahawks happened to pick the same days. Steve was available after his lesson for some extra work so Jon could work several drills with a snapper. Steve did a great job!
Steve being a good athlete has potential to be an excellent snapper. However, the key to every one's success is consistency.
After the first lesson during the video review I pointed out a couple of flaws in Steve's snapping technique. He and his father agreed. The second day I introduced Steve to my elbow thrust and slide, balls and strikes and perfect laces drills.
Steve was a quick study and picked up the drills and improved rapidly. Because I adjusted Steve's stance and delivery he had a couple of sore muscles after day two. As I tell everyone. It takes two to three weeks to get comfortable with some of the technique changes.
If Steve and other specialists realizes that the changes are necessary to improve, and if he works hard and shows patience the time spent will be worth it to him in the future.

It was a pleasure meeting and working with Steve and I wish him the best of luck in the future becoming the starting snapper at Michigan State University.
