When you're a long snapper, there are really only so many eye-popping things you can do. After all, it's not football's most glamorous position.
Then there's the Ravens' Morgan Cox, who truly breaks the mold.
On Monday afternoon, Cox took part in Teach for America Week at Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore. Teachers participating in the program brought their students into the gym to hear from Cox and run some relays.
Then Cox blew everybody's mind when he proposed doing a trick shot. He bent over, looked between his legs and fired a snap at the far basketball hoop. It clanked off the backboard and through the net.
According to Community Relations Coordinator Kelly Quinlan, Cox said he couldn't believe he made the shot. He sunk it on his first attempt.
Cox is a standout in the community as well as on the field. He is the Ravens' "school-visit all-star," per Quinlan.
Every offseason he visits his hometown and alma mater, Crosswind Elementary, in Collierville, Tenn. Last week, he visited Mother Seton School in Emmitsburg, Md., then participated in the Wounded Warrior Project workout at the Under Armour Performance Center.
Oh, and there was that time when Cox tore his ACL and MCL during the second quarter of a key 2010 Week 16 game in Cleveland and still finished the game. He was voted as the team's Ed Block Courage Award winner by his teammates the following year.
Yeah, Morgan Cox is one hardcore long snapper.
