Oh Snap!: Boise State Snags Another Long Snapper

Drew RobertsSenior Analyst IApril 21, 2009

The Katy Times (TX) is reporting that Chris Roberson has accepted an offer to play football at Boise State.

Roberson, who played both linebacker and fullback at Katy High School, will apparently be coming to Boise State to try and snag a floating scholarship at the long snapper position. As Roberson's scholarship is not a definite, it appears he will be attending as an invited walk-on, and Roberson believes he'll stick.

"They have a scholarship waiting," said Robertson. "They've offered for me to go to school there, and earn the scholarship if I beat out the guys they have."

To be honest, I'm not really sure how our long-snapper situation is right now. Dallas Dobbs was a long-snapping specialist the last few season, and prior to that, Jon Dominguez held the role.

So, I don't see why the 6'1", 220-pound Roberson couldn't inject himself right into the mix. After all, he's got his very own long snapping coach.

"I have a deep snapping coach in California, and they saw me on his web site," Roberson said Monday night.

Roberson will represent the seventh Texas athlete on the Broncos' roster.

Welcome aboard, kid. Good luck!
