In which BracketCat counts down the 42nd day until the 2019 kickoff with a profile of Kansas State long snapper Randen Plattner.

#42 Mark Simoneau
While he really has no positional relation to the long snapper I am profiling today, do you think I would pass up a chance to honor Mark Simoneau (42) with this picture from one of his best games?

Randen Jul Plattner (b. Dec. 8, 1999) is a walk-on long snapper from Park Hill High School in Parkville, Missouri. He redshirted in 2018 and might well compete for starting duties in 2019.

A three-year letter-winner at Park Hill under head coach Josh Hood, Plattner was rated the 23rd-best long snapper in the nation, according to Rubio Long Snapping.

He made 11 tackles and recovered a fumble in his prep career, helping the Trojans earn a 10-3 record and state semifinals appearance as a senior, and also lettered three years in golf.
