Local Long Snapper A Deac

Although often overlooked, a good long snapper is huge asset on special teams. The ability to get the ball to the punter quickly and accurately is vital and Wake Forest got a good one in recent commit Logan Feimster from Statesville High School. Feimster talked about his recent commitment and how he ended up a Demon Deacon.

Logan Feimster has good size at 6'5, 230 pounds and was being recruited by many 1-AA teams a s a tight end. But it is his skills as a long snapper that helped him snag an ACC offer.

Feimster jumped all over that offer, committing to Wake Forest almost immediately after receiving the offer. "When Wake Forest called me and offered me a scholarship as a long snapper I did not hesitate to take the offer," said Feimster.

Surprisingly enough, Feimster's offer from the Demon Deacons came in spite of the fact that he missed the Wake Forest summer camp. Although he didn't make camp, his highlight tape was enough to spark the interest of the Demon Deacon staff.

"I missed Wake's camp because of a church mission," he said. "When my team was there, my coaches told the Wake staff about me and they told them to send some tape. We sent them my tape and a few weeks ago Coach Mitchell came to my school to watch practice and time my snaps. A week later they offered and I jumped on it. I will be on full scholarship in the Spring of 2010 so I am greyshirting. I still may enroll early so I can work out with the team."

Feimster also noted he would work out at tight end or defensive line at Wake but will primarily be a long snapper.

During his senior season, Feimster's Statesville High School team had a successful season making the second round of the playoffs and losing to eventual 3-A champion West Rowan.
