Ball State long snapper Joseph Greenwood has played on the special teams unit in every game since joining the team as freshman in 2017.
Greenwood, a former high school quarterback, is slightly undersized at the position but has great athletic ability that makes up for it.
Long snapper might not be the most intriguing position in football but Greenwood’s experience and leadership has played an instrumental role in the Cardinal’s recent success.
Weight: 213 lbs.
It seems that most of the time when a special team player gets talked about it’s because they made a mistake in a pivotal moment. Luckily for Greenwood that hasn’t been the case as he’s shown consistency year in and year out during his four years at Ball State.
Due to most long snappers getting signed in free agency the days following the draft, it’s more likely Greenwood finds his way onto a team that route rather than being drafted.
Having played 44 games and all of the experience that comes with that, along with Greenwood’s athletic potential it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him on a special teams unit next fall.
