ITS BYE WEEK WHICH MEANS THERE’S NOTHING TO BE ANGRY ABOUT (DESPITE WHAT THE CURRENT STATE OF AGGIE TWITTER MIGHT LOOK LIKE) AND IT’S TIME TO TAKE A MINUTE TO RECOGNIZE THE MOST IMPORTANT GUY ON OUR TEAM (AT LEAST FOR TODAY)

LOOK ITS EASY TO GET ALL SEDUCED BY ARMANI WATTS’ COMPETITIVENESS OR ZAYCOVEN’S SWIM MOVES OR TYREL DODSON’S GENERAL DISTASTE FOR THE OPPOSING TEAM BUT OUR SPECIALISTS—NOW THOSE GUYS ARE THE ONES THAT MAKE THIS MACHINE HUM.

AND EVEN WITHIN THE SPECIALISTS THERE ARE HIERARCHIES OF INFLUENCE. EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT TRIPUCKA AND HIS HEISMAN CANDIDACY AND HOW HE JUST GOT AN AWARD FOR BEING THE HOLDER OF THE WEEK, AND DANIEL LACAMERA HAS BEEN PICTURE PERFECT THIS SEASON (HAHA MAN YEAH) ON FIELD GOALS.

BUT THERE’S ONE PERSON THAT MAKES THAT ALL POSSIBLE.

WE’VE PUNTED THE BALL 41 TIMES THIS YEAR. WE’E KICKED 16 FIELD GOALS AND HAD 25 EXTRA POINTS. THAT COMES OUT TO 82 TIMES WHERE THE BALL HAD TO MAKE ITS WAY FROM THE LINE TO THE HOLDER OR THE PUNTER. 82 PRESSURE PACKED SITUATIONS.

AND THE MAN IN CHARGE OF ALL 82 OF THOSE SITUATIONS IS MR. AUSTIN FREY, DEEP SNAPPER EXTRAORDINNAIRE.

IT’S TIME WE KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS GUY BECAUSE HE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PLAYER ON THE TEAM WHO GETS NO NOTICE AT ALL. HERE’S A PICTURE OF HIM:

LOOK AT THAT FORM. LOOK AT THAT FOCUS. LOOK AT THAT FINGER POINTING AT THAT MENACING LINEBACKER WHO WANTS NOTHING MORE THAN TO BLOCK THE KICK.

FLIP THROUGH THIS ARTICLE TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THIS LYNCHPIN OF THE TEXAS A&M FOOTBALL TEAM. AUSTIN IS A DAMN FINE AG WHO’S GRANDDAD PLAYED FOR YOUR FIGHTIN TEXAS AGGIES IN THE 1950S AND WHO’S BEEN COMING TO A&M GAMES SINCE HE WAS 6.

AGGIE LEGEND AUSTIN FREY.

FREY PLAYED 6 MAN FOOTBALL SO HE’S WAY TOUGHER THAN YOU OR I. HE STARTED OFF AS A WALK ON AND WAS PUT ON SCHOLARSHIP SO HE DEFINITELY HAS MORE DRIVE AND TENACITY THAN YOU OR I.

LOOK AT OUR AGGIE HERO

HE DESERVES YOUR RESPECT. HE DESERVES YOUR ADORATION. HE DESERVES TO BE CHEERED FOR EVERY TIME HE COMES ON THE FIELD.

TODAY, THIS BYE WEEK, WE SALUTE OUR DEEP SNAPPER. 82 MOMENTS OF PERFECTION THIS SEASON.

HE’S EARNED IT.

ENJOY YOUR BYE WEEKEND AGS. PREPARE YOURSELF EMOTIONALLY AND MENTALLY FOR THE GRIND AHEAD AS WE KNOW AUSTIN WOULD WANT US TO.
