    41 game "starter"

    Prospect Profile Article from Bill Dwyre of the Los Angeles Times
    ​​​​​​A tall, ruggedly handsome young man, proudly wearing his Bruins blues, stood up this week and told us that all is not lost in college football.

    His name, Jack Landherr, won’t be familiar, even though he will be playing in his 42nd game for UCLA in Friday’s Sun Bowl in El Paso. Long snappers don’t make headlines, unless they screw up. In four seasons, Landherr never screwed up. His snaps to the holder or punter were always on target, some perhaps a hundredth of a second slower than he wanted, maybe six inches higher than the previous one. No harm, no foul.

    He caused a fumble in punt coverage in a Nov. 25 game against Cal. That led to a Bruins recovery, probably the game’s winning points, joyful slaps on the helmet from his teammates along the sidelines and praise from his coach, Chip Kelly, in the postgame news conference. He even got his name in the paper. Those things, of course, happen to quarterbacks and wide receivers and running backs about every 10 minutes. For Landherr, never before and no matter. He was a student-athlete.​

    ​​​​​​Yes, Virginia, they do still exist.

    ​​​​​​In his time in Westwood, Landherr, 21, got his bachelor’s degree in three years with a major in political science and a minor in entrepreneurship. His GPA was 3.7. He also did an internship and now is working on a master’s degree in transformative leadership, a program based at least partly on John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success.

    Because COVID-19 gave all players an extra year of eligibility, Landherr could have played a fifth season. Earlier this week, he announced on social media that he will forgo that. He said he will make himself eligible for the NFL draft. Long snappers are a sought-after commodity in the pros. He received preseason All-American mention and has usually been listed in the top five in the country at his position.​

    ​​​​​​But what he said in his announcement was more significant than anything about the pros. He thanked his parents, his two sisters and his coaches, and said he was constantly motivated by the “quality of individuals that surrounded me.” He added: “The student-athlete experience at UCLA is second to none. I’m humbled and excited to represent UCLA in my future endeavors.”
