"My job is really necessary easy. Blaise gives me a great snap considering how good he is. I just grab it and put it down and then it's the kickers job to do the rest," said Rocco.

"Yeah Blaise definitely gives reassurance that nobody is going to come and block my kick. He gets it back quick to Rocco and Rocco gets it down on the block and I get the ball off," said Halle.
