Eagles Long Snapper Jon Dorenbos Impresses in Semi-Finals of ‘America’s Got Talent’ (Video)
Don’t ever say that long-snappers don’t have real-world skills. Philadelphia Eagle Jon Dorenbos has made his way to the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent, showing the world just what he can do when harnessing the power of magic.
His tricks are impressive, but his command of the room and the judges is even more so. He looks really comfortable (but a little fired up) when barking out orders and getting the next trick arranged. He also even managed to incorporate a football into his act, something fans have no doubt wanted to see for a while:
Sure, there’s some training camp going on that he might be missing, but think of this as prep for a post-football gig. With the name he’s making here, I’m sure networks would be falling all over each other to grab the guy as a studio co-host or something.
And if that fails, he can always run away to a magic academy or something, right?
Anyway, Dorenbos impressed the judges enough to make it to the next round, so he really could win this thing.
