Washington punter Tress Way is one of the more popular players on the team. Besides being one of the NFL’s best punters, Way does a lot of work in the community and is always a fun and hilarious interview.
Way met with the media after Monday’s practice in Ashburn and discussed rookie long snapper Camaron Cheeseman. Part of the reason reporters asked Way about Cheeseman was kicker Dustin Hopkins and his two missed field goals in the preseason opener.
Rivera said after the game, there was more to it than just Hopkins missing, noting how the timing was off between the long snapper, the holder (Way) and the kicker.
What does Way think of Cheeseman’s snaps?

Besides that hilarious answer on Cheeseman’s snapping ability, the veteran punter is pleased with the rookie long snapper.
“He’s doing awesome, and practice has been going great,” Way said, per Zach Selby of washingtonfootball.com. “And so it honestly is just one of those things where it brought some things to light, and we’ve been hammering it out this week.”
Way noted how he is in a strange position now playing the role of mentor. He arrived in Washington in 2014, when Nick Sundberg was already in his fifth season with Washington.
He said Sundberg offered him the following advice.
“I’m going to tell you what I need from you,” Sundberg told Way then. “And then other than that, you have to be selfish in a way that gets yourself prepared.”
