Overview

Positives … Has an adequate frame with good muscle definition … One of the best at his position, averaging 0.67 seconds on his snap to toe count from 14.5-yards out … Practices his trade hard and plays with confidence, showing enough speed and good determination to get down field and help support the coverage unit … Has a low center of gravity and good arm flexibility … Comes off the snap to drive defenders off the line with his leg drive … On punts, his accuracy is above average, consistently getting the ball right into the punter's chest and places lots of zip on the ball … Also shows adequate accuracy and velocity on his field goal snaps.

Negatives … Short, squatty type who offers minimal value as a defensive lineman … Has good size for a snapper, but lacks bulk to play as a down lineman … Struggles some with defenders lining up directly on his head, lacking the leg strength to anchor and prevent from being pushed back into the up-back … Will lend support to the coverage unit, but is not an effective tackler, spending more time lunging and making arm tackles rather than wrap and secure.

2004 Season

Had another stellar season and played an integral part in Buckeye punter B.J. Sander winning the 2003 Ray Guy Award … Started all 13 games … OSU coaches named him the special units player of the week following the Northwestern game … Handled 82 punt snaps, as Sander had 39 of his attempts downed inside the 20-yard line … Snapped on 19 field goal tries, with only one kick blocked … The team also converted all 30 of his PAT snaps.

2003 Season

Took over the long snapping duties on a regular basis and did an exceptional job with no errant snaps … Started all 14 games as the Buckeyes' long snapper … Played an instrumental role in the success of All-Americans Andy Groom (fourth nationally in punting) and Mike Nugent (nine school field goal records) … OSU coaches named him the special units player of the week following the Washington State game … Snapped on 60 of Groom's punts, as 15 were downed inside the 20-yard line and one was blocked … Handled snapping on all 28 field goal and 46 extra point tries, with none blocked and only one PAT was missed.

2002 Season

First collegiate action came against South Carolina in the Outback Bowl.
