Desert Vista graduate Ryan Masel found a specialty that has him going places.

Masel sustained a head injury early in his football career with the Thunder so in order to stay close to the game he took shot at long snapping.

Masel walked on at Washington and has started every game as the Huskies' long snapper.

He has taken all of the snaps for punts, field goals and extra points.

Washington is in Tucson this weekend to take on Arizona and a big group of family and friends are heading down to take in the game.
