The art of the snap.

While it seems so easy, the deep snapper position is becoming a highly-coveted specialty skill that can be the difference between a win and loss.

Houston is home to a nationally-ranked deep snapper in Memorial's Jacob Graham.

Graham's father had a friend who was a tight end for the New England Patriots, who converted to a deep snapper.

"That's when I really got interested in it," the long-time Texas A&M fan said. "It's a skill that anyone can learn. If you commit to it, you can get pretty good at it."

Graham only picked up the skill a year ago.

"You have to be pretty flexible in your hamstrings and shoulders to get you through the ball," he said. "Other than that, it's all about repetition. Over time, it will come."
