I told you guys a couple of weeks ago that I’ll be going on a journey to bring you moments of good news here at Outkick. Over the weekend it was the story of a Toledo, Ohio firefighter who’s also a boxer and saved a Top Rank Boxing official’s life by performing CPR after the man collapsed during Friday’s weigh-ins. DeAndre Ware lost his fight Saturday, but he’ll be remembered for saving a life.
Today we go to Marshall University where redshirt junior long snapper Zach Appio, from Normal, Illinois, found out he’s officially on scholarship after three years of sitting behind a four-year starter. Zach finally saw game action during Saturday’s blowout 59-0 win against Eastern Kentucky.
We have a soft spot for long snappers around here. The Fergusons — Reid, a Bills long snapper and Blake, a Dolphins long snapper — are Outkick fans. These two combined for eight consecutive years of Ferguson long snappers at LSU.
Here’s to Zach, the Fergusons, and all the other football guys out there just trying their best to make teams and keep the dream alive.
