He didn’t hear his name called during the NFL Draft, but shortly afterwards Jeff Overbaugh of Anchorage answered the call from the Los Angeles Rams.

The former San Diego State long snapper told the Alaska Dispatch News that the Rams called him after the Saturday’s third and final day of the draft, offering him a chance to come to rookie camp.

He leaves this week for L.A., where he will sign a free-agent contract.

“Excited to become a member of the Los Angeles Rams. Let’s go to work!” Overbaugh tweeted.

Signing a contract doesn’t guarantee him a place on the team, or in history.

Eleven Alaskans have played in the NFL, none of them a long snapper.

Overbaugh, of Service High fame, was a perfect 510-for-510 on snaps for punts, PATs and field goals.

The 6-foot-2, 245-pounder played in all 53 games during his four-year career at San Diego State.
