For the latter part of the 2010s, the Washington Huskies were the envy of most of West Coast football. The team had a quiet, no nonsense leader who kept the focus off himself and allowed the stars to showcase their talent. Of course, I’m talking about the career of long snapper A.J. Carty.
In his years with the program, Carty was almost completely anonymous. That happens to be the best compliment you can pay to a position that only gets noticed when something goes horribly wrong. Carty’s graduation made way for Jaden Green, who was surprisingly highly-touted as a long-snapping prospect.
