Bio

Status: Preferred Walk-On

Marcus Woodside-Heit (b. Nov. 3, 1990) might not be a familiar name to most, but for a guy 99 percent of the fan base hasn't heard of, he fills a pretty big role on the team.

Heit filled in ably for the departed Corey Adams last year as a long snapper on kicks and punts. There wasn't nearly the drop-off I had feared, although there were a few close calls that we didn't have the previous four years.

But the story had a rotten ending: Heit was suspended from the Cotton Bowl for academic reasons, forcing the coaches to remove the redshirt on true freshman Dalton Converse and throw him to the wolves Hogs.

Converse performed about as well as one could have expected in that situation, so while Heit supposedly has corrected the problem and is ready to reclaim his role, he might have a battle on his hands this fall to keep it.
