Jimmy Landes loves to snap footballs at things. The Detroit Lions long-snapper likes to do it during games, but in college he was inspired by the guys from Dude Perfect, a YouTube-based sports entertainment group, to create a trick snapping video at Baylor.
And now, while on vacation after his first NFL season, he’s back at it again. While traveling in Jordan, Landes found a camel. Then, he ran in front of it, bent down and snapped under the camel’s legs to a friend waiting on the other side.
So he’s clearly taking football a bit of everywhere.

It’s a short video, but it also shows Landes appears to be completely healthy after spending his rookie year on injured reserve due to shoulder surgery. This gave Don Muhlbach the long-snapping job for another year.
Landes, one of Detroit’s sixth-round picks last season, is expected to compete for the long-snapping job again in 2017. Muhlbach is a free agent.
