Jeff Dellenbach: Another branch on the coaching tree

Not all former Badgers who end up coaching high school end up back in Wisconsin. Like Jeff Dellenbach, who in a quiet way enjoyed a fine NFL career, primarily with the Dolphins but also with the Packers, Seahawks, and Patriots.

Dellenbach is now coaching at North Broward Prep near Miami. Looks like his top player has committed to Minnesota -- what's up with that?!?

It's interesting that one of Dellenbach's three sons is 6-1, 220, but is a long snapper for Auburn. Recently one of my friend's sons played in the Wisconsin all-star game in Oshkosh, and he was one of only two guys on the team with long snapping experience. That anecdote, plus that one from the story Will sent me earlier this summer, leads me to believe that having my kids practicing long snapping from an early age gives them a big leg up in advancing to a higher level of football.
