Perrysburg grad sets world record for snapping a football

PERRYSBURG, OH (WTOL) - Jase Whitner was in Perrysburg on Friday to put himself in the record books.

Whitner, a graduate of Perrysburg High School, was attempting to set the world record for snapping a football.

Well, he did it. With a near perfect spiral, Whitner snapped the ball a whopping thirty-four yards to set the new standard for distance snapping.

"When I was younger I got bullied so I just want the kids out there that get bullied and picked on to know that they can do something with their life," said Whitner.

Whitner got three attempts at the record but it only took one.

The previous record was thirty yards.
