    Long snapper Damon Johnson announced that he’ll take advantage of the extra year of eligibility and return to USC for the 2021 season.

    Obviously long snapper doesn’t get as much attention as other positions, but Johnson is one of the best in the country and this is really positive news for USC’s special teams.

    The most underrated player on the team. Unfortunately NFL long snapper positions are few (e.g., Patrick Mannelly played 16 seasons in the NFL).

    That's good news. He's done his thankless job very well.

    That's one of those positions you never notice...unless there is a problem.

    Reminds me of the Mike McDonald / John Robinson story. When Robby was with the Rams their regular snapper got hurt. Robinson remembered McDonald from USC, a guy who never even tried out for the pros. Called him up, he signed, and had an extended career with the Rams.
