Clark Harris is now a world-record holder.
Harris says he set a Guinness World Record this week while at the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl.
So now that I am down in Orlando for the @nfl Probowl I figured I would take this opportunity to set the @GWR (Guinness World Record) for the longest snap. I think it was 36 1/2 yards. #AnotherCheckOnTheBucketList #DreamsDoComeTrue— Clark Harris (@ClarkHarris46) January 27, 2018
A ninth-year player in 2017, Harris appeared in all 16 games this past season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He has played in all but three games (including playoffs) since joining the team on Oct. 13, 2009. He has had no botched snaps in his entire Bengals career.
Harris finished 2017 with four special teams tackles, and he handled all 143 deep snaps (89 punts, 54 placekicks) without an unplayable delivery.
Harris has been an ironman for the Bengals, as he played in 123 consecutive Bengals games (including postseason) through Nov. 20, 2016 versus the Buffalo Bills. He suffered a groin injury in that game and was inactive the next three weeks but has appeared in every game since.
The Bengals actually gave Harris a one-year contract extension in the middle of the 2017 season, keeping him under contract through the 2018 season. He’s become one of, if not the NFL’s best long-snapper, so it great seeing him finally get nationally recognized for his talents.
