Taybor Pepper Green Bay Packers Snapper


Congrats To Taybor Pepper (Michigan State) and Green Bay Packers Snapper.
Taybor Pepper at Coach Zauner's 2016 College Senior Combine
I first met Taybor Pepper Michigan State University snapper at my January 2016 Snapper's ONLY 'Vital Man' Training camp in Fountain Hills, Arizona.
Taybor Pepper - Michigan State Snapper

Taybor was one of the 34 College, Free Agent and Elite High School Snappers attending this camp to prepare for either Coach Zauner's College Senior Combine in February or Free Agent Combine in March here in Gilbert, Arizona or for their next upcoming season.

Taybor was attending to prepare for Coach Zauner's 2016 College Senior Combine.  During this camp Taybor was exposed to Coach Zauner's philosophy of snapping and blocking in a PRO Style kicking game.  


During this camp snappers get exposed to Coach Zauner's College Senior Combine testing.  They learn Coach Zauner's Perfect Laces and Balls and Strikes Drill.  They also practice Coaches Coverage Agility Drill.  NFL Special Teams Coordinators like NFL prospects that can not only just snap, but also snap, block and cover.  Get down field and make a tackle.  
Taybor Pepper at Coach Zauner's 2016 College Senior Combine
Every year in February Coach Zauner hold his College Senior Combine in Gilbert, Arizona at Campo Verde High School.  In 2016 76 specialists attended this combine and Taybor was one of 27 snappers in attendance competing for Coach Zauner's recommendation.


This three day combine was designed by Coach Zauner for College Seniors looking to get exposure to NFL and CFL professional football teams.  Seniors from all over the country and from all divisions of college football head to Gilbert, Arizona to attend Coach Zauner's Combine to show case their talents and get Coach Zauner's endorsement and recommendation as an NFL Prospect. 


Throughout Coach Zauner's coaching career he has earned a reputation for having an "Eye" for talent and also the ability to develop kicking, punting and snapping talent.   Actually throughout his coaching and consulting career he has now worked with 120+ NFL and CFL kicking specialists, including 25 PRO Bowlers.


After, the College Senior Combine, Taybor along with nine other snapper received Coach Zauner's recommendation and endorsement as a player that has NFL potential.  After the 2016 NFL Draft Taybor attended a couple of NFL mini camps along with 10 other snappers.  Several signed NFL contracts.
Coach Zauner's College Senior Combine Produces Results For Snappers
After the 2016 NFL season I received a call from Taybor in late December and he wanted to refine a couple of things in his snapping game and came to Fountain Hills, Arizona for a ONE on ONE Snapping Lessons in January of 2017.  

Taybor Pepper at ONE on ONE Snapping Lesson with Coach Zauner
A couple of weeks later Taybor was in Green Bay, Wisconsin for a workout and signed a futures contract with the Packers.  A couple of months later he was released.  Just like a couple of other snappers that attended my camps and combines that signed futures contracts, they get released sometimes because of roster moves for other position players.  Taybor was one of those casualties.

Taybor Pepper Signs NFL Futures Contract with Green Bay Packers
Later in the summer,  Taybor signed with the Baltimore Ravens.  He played in a couple of preseason games but again was released.  The life of a free agent kicker, punter or snapper is many highs and many lows. 

Taybor was like many other free agent specialists that were final cuts, home watching Sunday Football. 

Keeping the dream alive, Taybor kept training.  Hoping for that next call and workout with any NFL team looking to replace their snapper or in case of an injury.  On Sunday the Packers veteran snapper was injured on put on injured reserve.  Nobody likes to see a player get injured but when there is an injury you just hope your one of the players brought in for a workout. 

Sunday night Tabor got that call from the Packers.  It helped that the Packers were familiar with Taybor and liked what they saw earlier in the year.  This weekend Taybor will be fulfilling a dream to be an Snapper on an NFL Team.

Congrats to Taybor for all his hard and accomplishments.  Taybor Pepper Green Bay Packers Snapper. 

This year Taybor Pepper becomes the 7th Snapper from Coach Zauner's Snapping Programs to make and NFL roster.  In the last 9 years Coach Zauner's Snapping Programs have now produced 24 snappers on NFL & CFL rosters.  Other snappers are: Reid Ferguson (Bills), Zach Wood (Saints), Kameron Canaday (Steelers), Tyler Ott (Seahawks), Thomas Hennessy (Jets) and Rick Lovato (Eagles).  Congrats to all these snappers and continued success!

Kameron Canaday Pittsburgh Steelers Snapper

Kameron Canaday Pittsburgh Steelers Snapper



I first met Kameron Canaday (Portland State University) at Coach Zauner's 2016 College Senior Combine.  He along with 26 other College Senior Snappers attended this show case event in late February in Gilbert, Arizona.


Coach Zauner's College Senior and Free Agent Combines have been excellent venues for specialists, especially snappers to get exposure to NFL teams.  Why?


Throughout Coach Zauner's high school, college and NFL coaching career has always had a reputation for having an "Eye" for talent.  Not only finding talent but also developing talent. 


At first glance Kameron passed the eyeball test.  He is a big good looking athlete that can snap a football. 


During the College Senior Combine each snapper is tested on Coach Zauner's "Perfect Laces" and "Balls and Strikes" Drills. 

Also, during the punt snapping test they are graded by Coach Zauner on their ability to block.  Many college snappers are excellent snappers but lack the size and footwork to block an NFL size rusher.


Each snapper is also tested in Coach Zauner's Coverage Agility Drill.  This tests an athletes ability to snap, block, start, stop and change direction.  Kameron competed and did well in all phases.


After the 2016 NFL Draft Kameron signed as a Free Agent with the Arizona Cardinals.  He competed in camp and won the snapping job.  Unfortunately, he had a couple of poor, miss timed snaps that caused him to be release. 

To his credit he bounced back and signed a free agent contract in the off season with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  In September he was named the starting snapper for the Steelers.

Congrats to Kameron and best of luck this season!

Matt Gay (Utah) and Jace Christmann (Mississippi State)

Coach Zauner's ONE on ONE Kicking Lessons Produce Results for Soccer Players.

Coach Zauner Teaches 'A Natural Style of Kicking and Punting'

Jace Christmann and Matt Gay - ONE on ONE Coach Zauner Students
About five years ago I first met Jace Christmann and in April of 2017 I met Matt Gay.  Both of these young men were excellent soccer players in high school.  Both wanted to be football kickers.


Jace was a freshman at Houston Memorial High School in Houston Texas and Matt was a junior at Utah Valley University playing on the soccer team.


Coach Zauner a former NFL Special Team Coach with the Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals and current kicking consultant is known for his philosophy of teaching and coaching a 'Natural Style of Kicking and Punting'.

Coach Zauner Teaches and Coaches 'A Natural Style of Kicking and Punting'

Jace Christmann During A ONE on ONE Kicking Lesson With Coach Zauner
During his 40 plus years as a coach and consultant  he has now coached, consulted and trained over 120 plus NFL and CFL kicking, punting and snapping specialists, including 25 PRO Bowlers.


Today as a kicking consultant I really enjoy working with young men at any level.  It doesn't matter if their high school, college, free agent or  professional specialists as long as they are looking to get better.  As a teacher and coach my gratification comes from the improvement and success my students or players achieve. 


Matt Gay and Jace Christmann are a perfect examples of ONE on ONE students that have put a big smile on my face because of their success so far this year.  These two soccer players have embraced Coach Zauner's Natural Style of Kicking.

Matt was a walk-on this year at the University of Utah for Head Coach Kyle Whittingham and is presently after three games 11 for 11 or 100% on his field goal attempts.


Jace was a preferred walk-on last year at Mississippi State for Head Coach Dan Mullen.  Jace for the last month was in a battle with three other kickers for the starting spot.  He started 4th on the depth chart the opening week of training camp.

He has worded hard and moved up the depth chart each week.  He has stayed confident and matured each week as a person and player.  He has competed, stayed focused and believed in his technique. 

This past weekend Jace got his first start against LSU.  I am happy to say Jace was 3 for 3 on his field goal attempts and perfect on extra points. 

Congrats to both Jace Christmann and Matt Gay for their success so far this season.

Tyler Ott Seattle Seahawks Snapper

Tyler Ott at Coach Zauner's 2014 College Senior Combine
I first met Harvard University Tight End and Long Snapper Tyler Ott in January of 2014.  His agent had contacted me about doing a ONE on ONE Snapping Lesson to prepare him for the 2014 Reeses's Senior Bowl.
Tyler Ott Tight End & Snapper at Harvard University
During the lesson we worked on a couple of minor changes in his snapping technique but really focused on his consistency and blocking technique.  We also focused on the Art of Snapping "Perfect Laces" on his field goal snaps.

Tyler Ott at 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl
In January Tyler attended the 2014 Reese's Senior Bowl and performed very well in front of the 32 NFL teams attending.  The Senior Bowl is a show case event for the top college prospects at all positions.


Next, Tyler attended Coach Zauner's 2014 College Senior Specialist's Combine in Gilbert, Arizona in late February.  This show case event was designed by Coach Zauner for best College Senior Specialists NOT invited to the NFL Combine.  


During this combine all the snappers are tested on their ability to not only punt long snap and field goal short snap but also their athletic ability as a football player.  Tyler competed and received Coach Zauner's recommendation as a NFL prospect along with several other specialists.


Coach Zauner's College Senior Combine has produced exposure and results for many College Seniors and especially Snappers.  Below are just a few. 


After the 2014 NFL Draft Tyler was signed by the New England Patriots. He has had opportunities in the last three years with the Patriots, Rams, Giants, Bengals and now the Seattle Seahawks.  He finished the 2016 NFL season with the Seahawks when Nolan Frese was injured.  

In 2017 he competed for the starting job with the Seattle Seahawks and won the battle.   Congrats to Tyler for Ott for his hard work and dedication.  I wish Tyler and the Seahawks the best of luck this season.
