2013 Rubio Long Snapper Zach Smith committed to USC as a preferred walk-on.
Guess this is just for depth and to give McBride some competition?
Rubio Long Snapper Zach Smith commits to USC! Southern Cal gets a terrific nationally ranked Long Snapper.
If true that's ''HUGE'' (ST) players especially long snappers FG/PK are very important pieces to the overall team success.you see what happened when the Center goes down it's the non glam positions the unsung heroes that makes it all look like a well oiled machine.

No Excuses,'' 11 x National Campions anyday,anytime ,anywhere.
To get that caliber of player at any position as a walkon is priceless. Welcome aboard Zach.
Speaking of walk-ons, do we have any updates on some of our preferred walk-ons from last season?
Christian Tober, Elijah Steen, and Cole Cottrell?
Wow great news, love competition!

Fight On Zach!
Very good news! Hopefully he can redshirt in 2013 to create some class separation between he and Peter McBride who will be a soph next year.
Welcome ZS! You have one of the most important yet the most overlooked positions in football. Fight on.
If memory serves me right, we currently have a LS that on scholarship, no?
Yes. Peter McBride.
Yes, Peter McBride.
Do walk-ons want to be red-shirted? That's and extra year of school they are paying for while not getting a chance to play.
You're getting guaranteed admission to a top 25 university and will only take minimal damage on the field, you have a shot at a long term steady NFL contract, you get to hangout with the best athletes in the country, and if you stay for 5 years you get into any 1 year master's program of your choice. Not to mention there's a good chance you may pick up a scholarship for a year or two.

Cry Havoc; and let slip the dogs of war!
WIN ,WIN, and if Mcbride gets injured'' KNOCK ON WOOD '',we will at least have an adequate back-up and won't have to go for (2 )after every TD or go for it on 4th and 9 etc. it changes game plans and coaching decisions.
I think Junioe Pomee played long snapper in practice and is the back up long snapper. This is a good addition to the team.
That's right....thanks fellars.
LOLz someone downvoted this. REALLY?
lol...and someone downvoted me saying thanks.
There's a lurking troll on the board.
They downvoted Mike's last source update too.
Don't worry about it.
"If this was a prize fight they'd call it off"- F ND!
Does anyone know what other walk-ons we have coming?
lol....what a lowlife loser. I got a PM the other day suggesting who it is....but I have a hard time believing this "old" poster would stoop this low.
Ahh. I think I know to whom you are alluding.
