Jorgen Hus NFL Snapper St. Louis Rams

Jorgen Hus 2012 Regina Rams (Canada)
Jorgen Hus is from Regina Saskatchewan Canada and was playing football for the Regina Rams a couple of years ago when I first met him.  Jorgen called back in 2009 to set up a One on One Lesson  and then followed up with attending a PRO Development Camp 

Jorgen mentioned he learned about my services as a kicking coach through Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan who is also from Regina. Jon mentioned to Jorgen if he wanted to improve his technique and have contacts to get into the NFL he should go to the Phoenix, Arizona and introduce himself and work with Coach Zauner.

Jorgen attended the 2013 January PRO Development Camp in hopes of showing me that he had the talent and potential to play in the NFL.  Every year at January's PRO Development Camp there is an excellent group of college snappers in attendance.  I told Jorgen if he could come and compete with this excellent group of snappers he would answer his own question.

After three days of working the camp we had a conversation.  I told him he had the snapping and coverage skills that NFL teams would like but the lingering question was his weight.  At 225 pounds most NFL teams would consider him a little Saskatchewan.

Three months later Jorgen was back at my 2013 College Senior Specialist's Combine competing with some of the best college senior snappers that had not been invited to the NFL Combine. Jorgen did very well and stood out in the coverage drills.

Jorgen was one of the six snappers I recommended and felt had NFL potential and should be looked at by the 32 NFL Teams.  Jorgen's stats and video were posted on my website and sent to all 32 NFL Teams Directors of College Scouting and Special Teams Coordinators. 

After the 2013 NFL Draft Jorgen was signed by the St. Louis Rams. 

As a side note two other snappers Jackson Anderson (Duke University) and Kevin McDermott (UCLA) also attended the 2013 January PRO Development Camp, took One on One Lesson and competed at the 2013 College Senior Kicking Combine.  Both signed Free Agent Contracts.  Jackson Anderson signed with the Dallas Cowboys and Kevin McDermott is in camp with the San Francisco 49ers. 

Also, Morgan Cox (Baltimore Ravens), Justin Drescher (New Orleans Saints), Christian Yount (Cleveland Browns) and Beau Brinkley (Tennessee Titans) have all come through Coach Zauner's College Senior Kicking Combine Event.

Jorgen now has gone through the St. Louis Rams mini-camp, OTA's and is now preparing for his first NFL training camp.  

Jorgen has a passion for snapping and a goal to play in the NFL. He has worked hard on and off the field to fulfill his dream.  For three years he has flown from Canada to Phoenix, Arizona for One on One Lessons and PRODevelopment Camps to prepare for this day. 

I thought I would share this article written by Joe Lyons; Long Snapper Hus wants to make a name for himself

It was a pleasure meeting and working with this young man and I wish Jorgen the best of luck this coming summer and season.
