Russell Cook interview.

You snap, long and short, don't you?
"Yeah, I do punt, field goal and extra point."

How have you done so far? I don't remember hearing that any snaps have been bad.
"They've all been good. I didn't get a chance to do any field goal (snaps) against LSU. In the previous games, they were all good, both points and field goal. I try to be consistent."

Does your coach grade you?
"On each snap, my coaches will get the time and tell me how my blocks were and my coverage."

I haven't heard anything bad about your snaps or play. Do you have anything you still need to improve on?
"I have been pretty consistent during the season. I guess staying consistent for the rest of the season is my main goal."
