Where should Corbin Grassman go for his next long-snapper trick shot?

Somewhere near Texas A&M, DudePerfect is on high alert, because right now UB long snapper Corbin Grassman has the trick shot thunder.

The first day of practice brought us a little bit of William Tell:

I made a critical mistake with this one, because I thought most long snappers could do this. Turns out, based on the viral reaction, that's not the case.

As an encore, he upped his game significantly:

I am pretty sure most long snappers cannot do that.

That's only two days, and there's still over three weeks until the season opener against Albany. Unfortunately, Corbin, you've whetted our appetites, and we want more. Here's a list, some reasonable, some not:

1. Show you're the man for the job when Jarryn Skeete needs a breather by hitting some three pointers in Alumni Arena. Indulge your inner Steph Curry by taking a few from the running track, as well.

2. Walk out the front door of Alumni, hunker down, and take some shots at the bison statue in the middle of Coventry Loop.

4. Take a Tuesday visit to Larkin Square and take aim at the food truck windows. If it's not too crowded.

5. How much distance can you get? Not legal in-game, but I want to see some through the uprights.

6. Oozefest. I'm not even sure what once you get there, just Oozefest.

7. Normal-sized golf holes are too small for this list, but fortunately Delaware Park has recently made some changes.

8. Baird Point looks so much like a cricket wickets and bails it's almost begging to throw things at it. Plus, maybe you can get a football to skip on the waters of Lake LaSalle.
