we tried the one handed dead ball snap. It is slow. Big time. Also we were call fro manipulating the ball more times than I thought possible. We had a game where it was raining pretty hard and the ball was wet. Made the snap impossible and we had to go back to a traditional snap.
nothing replaces effort. nothing replaces the mind. One with out the other is a waste.

...and these are little dudes that are supposed to struggle with many things.

We installed this snap just tonight for our Spring Team. Taught a kid that has never done it before but has played Center for 3 years.

In 10 minutes he was money....under Center and gun. He wondered why his own coach never thought of this.

Thanks Lar !

I always make sure my centers practice some with two hands even if they normally snap with one hand, both for under center and gun. When it's ugly out, I want the ball secured by putting a second hand on it.

I also allow my centers to figure it out - I won't intervene unless they aren't getting it after a couple of days. I show them traditional and end over end, and then just let them decide. And again, that's for both gun and under center.

we do it one handed no problem...2nd string center had small hands, 7th grade kid, got middle and ring finger on laces for grip problem solved he was 19/20 good...so 5% bad...and for a backup that...well it aint bad.
