Bergen Catholic NJ football Logan Rager launches long snapper business

In a split second, teenager Logan Rager has parlayed his football passion into a successful business, a licensing deal and acceptance to an Ivy League school.

Rager, who was ranked the nation’s No. 1 high school long snapper in the Class of 2022, ended his high school career as part of Bergen Catholic’s unbeaten team last fall. He accepted an offer to continue his football career at Princeton.

Rager started a business this year called LSL elite, and he trains players from fourth grade to college on how to accurately snap a football to a punter or holder in less than a second.

“When my high school career was over, I realized that I wanted to take my long snapping into something else,” said Rager, who will celebrate his 19th birthday in August. “I wanted to create a long-snapping business out of it.”

Logan Rager earned All-American honors as a long snapper for Bergen Catholic in 2021 and will continue at Princeton University in 2022.

With greater emphasis placed on special teams from high school, to college, to the NFL, elite long snappers are now coveted. In the NFL, a long snapper, on the field for about six to 12 plays a game for punts, field goals and extra points, can earn more than $1 million annually.

Rager wants to snap in the NFL. His “LSL” stands for “Long Snapping Logan,” and the 6-foot, 205-pounder from Secaucus trains approximately 20 players in Franklin Lakes, Fairfield and Middletown.
