Bergen Catholic football in NJ Logan Rager starts long snapper business

In a split second, teenager Logan Rager parlayed his passion for football into a successful business, a licensing deal and acceptance into an Ivy League school.

Rager, who was ranked as the nation’s No. 1 high school player in the class of 2022, ended his high school career as part of Bergen Catholic’s undefeated team last fall. He accepted an offer to continue his football career at Princeton.

Rager started a business this year called elite LSL, and it trains players from fourth grade through college how to accurately catch a tackler or tackler in less than a second.

“When my high school career was over, I knew I wanted to do something else to get involved long,” said Rager, who will celebrate his 19th birthday in August. “I wanted to make a long business out of it.”

Logan Rager earned All-American honors as a shortstop for Bergen Catholic in 2021 and will attend Princeton University in 2022.

With greater emphasis placed on special teams from high school, to college, to the NFL, elite snappers are now coveted. In the NFL, a long punter, on the field for about 6 to 12 plays a game for punts, field goals and extra points, can make more than $1 million a year.

Rager wants to get into the NFL. His “LSL” stands for “Long Snapping Logan,” and the 6-foot, 205-pounder from Secaucus coaches about 20 players in Franklin Lakes, Fairfield and Middletown.
