Naz grad aims to break through as Purdue long snapper
Grant Ellington looks to earn playing time at Purdue after transfer
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Long snapper is a position you don’t want to have your name called for.
The only time you get attention for it is when something goes wrong.
Purdue’s Grant Ellington, a Nazareth graduate from La Grange, is entering his second year with the Boilermakers after spending a year at Drake. After snapping and playing tight end at Nazareth, he joined the Bulldogs before transferring to Purdue, which both of his parents attended. Ellington enrolled at Purdue in fall 2012 and walked on to the football team this spring. With last year’s starting long snapper back this season, Ellington doesn’t expect to see much field time this year, but hopes to earn a starting job in his final three years of eligibility.
