Wesley Choate is a long snapper who stands at 6-foot and weighs 215 pounds. He was named FACA First Team All Region in 2022 fall season and played at Manatee High School.

We caught up with Choate as he continues to look for a home this fall. From the Kohl’s kicking website, “He finished the charting portion of camp with the 10th highest overall charting score with an average snap time of .81 seconds and scored on 9 of his 10 long snaps. Choate has clean ball rotation and is very consistent with his accuracy. Staying fast with his hands and firing them through his target will help him continue to improve his snap times.” HUDL link
