    Jon is also a very good magician who earns quite a bit of money on side doing corporate shows. He has been in the NFL 13 years. The long snapper is the player that hikes the ball to the ball holder for field goals. Many people think it is not an important position on Special Teams. It is not important until the snapper hikes the ball over the head of the holder and all hell breaks lose and costs the team the game. It's why Dorenbos has been in the league this long and earns a million dollars a year. Dorenbos has an interesting back story. His father murdered his mother when he was 12 years old. His father was a software specialist. His father was sentenced to 13 years in prison for second degree murder. Seems like a light sentence but it wasn't premeditated. Watch Heidi hike the ball through her legs and you can she is very experienced bent over in this position.

    Don't know how he does the trick. The map could have been slipped into the binder but how did the states quarters get into the chest. There are some cutaways in the camera shots but what about the audience. They would have seen it. Just no way Dorenbos could have put the correct quarters in the chest.

    Long Snapper is the dream job, Don't have hands under your ass like the center. Only problem is if you fuck up a couple times your out of a job. But if your real good at it you have a long time job and don't take anywhere near the damage of any other line player in the league.

    I just told my wife she's starting to have a long snapper. I think a plastic surgeon can help with that.:dontknow:
