Encino (Calif.) Crespi 2018 linebacker/long snapper James Townsend (6-2, 210), took part in the U.S. Army National Combine earlier this month.
"It was great, being there with all the kids from around the country," said Townsend. "Being form Los Angeles and going with my quarterback, Hamish McClure, that was cool."
Townsend worked out at linebacker at the event, but its actually as a long snapper that more attention is coming from.
"I want to go to a school to be a long snapper, but I would definitely play linebacker," said Townsend. "I've been going to Rubio Long Snapping for a long time and did the Vegas camp. I just did linebacker at the Army Combine. But I am being recruited more for long snapping."
Last summer, Townsend visited Syracuse and Notre Dame and plans to get back out to Syracuse in the spring.
Academically he has a 3.6 and will take the SAT in the spring.null
