The article is correct, a quality long snapper is important and getting a top one is certainly worth one scholarship. Good job, it shores up a position that is important.

Huge pickup cougars!

No doubt you're inching closer and closer to a BCS game.

LOL!

Not going to happen.

Ever.

A long snapper and four QB's. Domain is doing a great job in putting together a football team.

LOL!

If we would have had a better long snapper, we would have beat U on your home field with a Feshman QB.

This is a good pick up. Pine View kids are always welcome!

Congrats, Kevin!

"A long snapper and four QB's. Domain is doing a great job in putting together a football team."

Really?

Smack talk about a deep snapper? The kids on the hill are really feeling insecure these days.

A good long snapper is an essential component of a good football team.

When Wynn struggles and Kyle realizes that he has no serviceable backups, Utah fans will be looking with envy at the plethora of solid backup QBs that Bronco has stockpiled.

C'mon trolls. You may need 2 long snappers with all of the action your punter is going to get this next year. The good part about that is the 2nd best play the Utes made against BYU last year was the "muffed punt". Without that, you would have chalked up another loss.

Good news -- I remember the pain from 2003's problems.

People don't realize how critical this position is. If this person messes up, it could mean two easy points for the other team, or putting them in perfect scoring position.

By the way, when one person has IE and Firefox open, logged under two different accounts, and posts twice on one article on a team he doesn't like one after another, that shows what a classless and lowlife that person really is. Whoever you are, you must be from Vancouver, because they have no class in that city.

Thanks for the heads-up. Always suspected that Chrissie B and Hedgie were one in the same personna-as they just can not resist any opportunity to talk smack/hate about even the most trivial BYU news. It all makes sense now.

Little by little Coach Mendenhall and his staff are putting together all the integral pieces for a potential run at a national championship and BCS bowls over the next several years.

Go Cougs!

Troll,

a long snapper is typically a walk on... Domain really should be putting his effort in getting some CB's.... although that is probably impossible at the Y.

Do you ever get tired of hitting your head against a wall?

BYU will always loose.
BYU will never reach a BCS game.
BYU will never...

"Ever" is a long time dude. What will your wold come to if BYU does?

It's funny but my mom used to tell me, don't let your mouth write checks reality can't possibly deliver.

I don't know where you live, but its not reality.

Of course a Team with fans that know nothing about football would make fun of this signing, but Fans of the premiere and only Legite Football program in the state understand this offer. Deep snapping is a vital skill, known to real football fans nation wide.

Of course when you have band wagon fans, like some of the lower tiered schools in the state, they would probably smirk at this signing. So predictable!

You wouldn' be implying that

hedgehog = Chris B

are you?

LOL!

Surely it's just a coincidence that they're always two of the first bloggers to post on every BYU article.

Kyle probably doesn't bother recruiting long snappers anymore because they're no longer needed at Utah since King Louie graduated.

This lack of attention to detail, relying on chance to have a quality long snapper, is why Kyle loses to teams like Wyoming, Colorado State, New Mexico and UNLV, and Bronco is undefeated against all of them.

I LOVE Chrissy's predictions ... they are ALWAYS wrong. She just guaranteed us some great success. Thanks Little Sis.

A byu fan claiming that a Utah fan doesn't know football. That's ironic. Wasn't it Bronco that called byu fans uneducated when he said, "the level of criticism is equal to the level of education"?

byu's own football coach called byu's fans uneducated about football.

What about teams like Utah State?

Good for this kid. He gets to play football and get a free education.

Shows how much you know about football.

I am not sure where you getting your info, but your ignorance is showing.

Special teams win games. If he's good, he gets a scholarship.
