HFP: Zach Von Rosenberg on Radical Transformations and Special Teams Successes
No one’s story is quite like Zach Von Rosenberg’s.
The 29-year-old punter played six years of professional baseball before joining LSU in 2016, where he bounced from quarterback to tight end to, finally, punter.
Now, he’s one of the best in the country, a field-flipping weapon who consistently pins foes deep in their own territory and who holds field goals and extra points for one of the top-scoring offenses in SEC history.
His unique journey has given him unique insight into LSU’s rise to the top of college football, and we dive deep into both. We discuss all things special teams – Greg McMahon‘s impact on the room, Cade York’s development, his breakthrough in 2017 at Tennessee – but we also dig into his story: how he overcame the first failure of his life after six years of college baseball; how he bounced between positions and gained and lost weight to try and find his role with the Tigers; how he’s watched Joe Burrow turn into the best quarterback in college football from the front row.
This is one of the most interesting and unique conversations I’ve had on this show all season. Sit back, grab a glass of red wine, and enjoy.
