We are just a few days over the halfway mark until we get to see Boilermaker Football again, today, we have a back up long snapper.
Ryan Sadkowski - Senior
Glen Ellyn, Illinois (Glenbard South High School)
5’11”, 225 Pounds
2018 Projection: Back Up Long Snapper
Never heard of Ryan Sadkowski? He is our back up, just in case Ben Makowski were to ever go down. Ryan walked on the team in 2016, but has not played a down for us. Mostly because Ben has been so damn solid.
Sadkowski walked on during his sophomore year at Purdue. He has been named to the All-B1G academic team, which is no small feat. Barring injury, we will never see Ryan snap the football here at Purdue, maybe on Senior Night (?)
Sadkowski has been the perfect practice squad long snapper. It is always nice to have a guy that doesn’t mess the long snap up when trying to give our 1’s some looks.
For your pure enjoyment, I dug up some highlights of Ryan in High School, he is a very good long snapper!
