Schluter turns long snapping into ticket to college football

Navarre senior Garrett Schluter started long snapping when he was in middle school. He wasn’t expecting to.

“I was in seventh grade and we needed a long snapper because ours had gotten hurt,” Schluter said. “My dad said to come over here real fast and (I will) teach you how to long snap. He taught me before the game, and that’s how I got started.”

Schluter has been long snapping ever since and he’ll continue to do so in college. The Navarre senior has signed with Huntingdon College, an NCAA Division III school in Montgomery, Alabama.

“It’s kind of crazy. I didn’t really expect to go to college to play football,” Schluter said.
