Punter Tom Snee announces he is stepping away from football

·1 min read

The game of football is such a physical sport where injuries are a common thing. But sometimes we forget the game can take a mental toll as well.

Apparently, it has taken a toll on Oregon Ducks junior punter Tom Snee.

The Melbourne, Australia native announced via his Instagram page that he would be stepping away from the sport of college football, citing he wants to prioritize his mental health.

It’s a big blow for the Ducks since Snee is the only punter listed on the roster at this point in time. Oregon also didn’t sign a punter in this last recruiting class and kicker Camden Lewis doesn’t have any punting experience in college.

Snee was among the best punters in the conference, averaging nearly 42 yards and putting 17 of his 44 punts inside the 20-yard line.
