53 Days to Purdue Football: John Bednar

The 53rd day from kickoff brings us to John Bednar, a reserve long snapper out of Valpo.

John Bednar - Fr. (RS)

Hometown: Valparaiso, IN (Valparaiso)

Long Snapper

6'3", 220 pounds

2013 Projection: Reserve at Long Snapper

Not much info is available on Bednar, but he comes into the 2013 season as the backup to current long snapper Jesse Schmitt. Bednar is one of only three long snappers on the roster (Grant Ellington is the other), so time on the field could be a possibility if the injury bug hits Schmitt.

In honor of Purdue's rich and illustrious long snapper legacy, I'll leave you to ex-snapper Kevin Ballinger's blog, a familiar site to many Boilermaker fans.

Make us and Kevin proud, Mr. Bednar.
