Thoughts: How in the world Mitch Hall is already a senior is lost on me. One day you’re writing about their high school camps and the next you’re collecting photos for their senior day highlights. It’s like they always say, life really does whiz by you like a football snapped perfectly through someone’s legs positioned approximately 13-15 yards away.

I could probably save myself about 30 minutes and just direct you to last years recap of Mitch with a big DITTO for 2019 attached. Another great season, another year with no major mistakes or issues, and another year where you couldn’t pick him out a lineup at the long snapper summer camps (I tried to go this year, had my bag packed, my balls packed, stretched my hammies real good, but ya know, ‘rona ruined it). I mentioned this last year (hey, I told you to just to go read it again) but I do feel like Hall will go down as a part of one of the best assemblies of special teams players in the program with Creque and King. That group of ‘Regualtors’ will appear in the record books for seasons to come, and it doesn’t go unappreciated by me.

I expect another flawless season for Hall, and then hope to see him snatched up by a pro squad the following year. Maybe he and his best bud Becton can reunite on the Jets?

Sweet Tweet:

Mitch, like a typically long snapper, isn’t really all in on self-promotion but he was recently named to the preseason watch list for the ‘Patrick Mannelly Award’ which is given to the best long snapper in the country each year. I want Mitch to win this award not only because he is very good at what he does, but because I think this may be the most incredible looking trophy in history…

Someone please notify Mitch that if he wins this award, I want a picture with it, or should I say I want to “snap” a photo with it. Let’s do it Mitch, we’re in this together.
