Kicking Unit Remains a Solid Rock for Washington

BLUEMONT, Va.- The Washington Football Team has went through many changes over the last 10 years, both on the field and off, with several head coaches, quarterbacks, management personnel but there has been one constant over the past 11 seasons.

Nick Sundberg, the Washington Football teams long snapper from California has been a starter from day one and has been one of the most consistent long snappers in the NFL and also one of the most generous players in the league when it comes to donating his time and effort to multiple charitable foundations and was last years representative from Washington for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.

Match that up with the fact Sundberg has been working punter Tress Way for 7 seasons and kicker Dustin Hopkins for 6 seasons, the 24 years of NFL experience together only gets better with time.

Hopkins out of Florida State joined the Redskins in 2015 after being selected by the Buffalo Bills. Hopkins has been a steady force in both scoring and kick offs.

Tress Way was drafted by Washington in 2014 and has played every game (96) since joining the team and was a Pro bowl selection for Washington last year.

Sunberg is the third most experienced player on the team behind Alex Smith and Thomas Davis Sr. who each have 16 years in the league. Way and Hopkins also fall within the top ten in experience and will likely have another successful year 

Nick Sundberg is as solid as they come                Moe Murphy/ Clarke County Sports
