RALEIGH — There’s a reason you may not know Joe Shimko.

His success with NC State football is based on staying out of the spotlight — remaining invisible through perfection. That the average fan does not know his name, means he’s doing his job.

That’s the life of a long snapper.

But Shimko’s efficiency at his position has begun to earn him some recognition. Entering his fourth season with the Wolfpack, Shimko has never been responsible for a bad snap on 174 punts and 180 field goals and extra points.

That’s 354 perfect snaps over three years and 4,050 yards — 15 yards a punt, eight for FGs and XPs — that a football leaving his hands has traveled without a mistake. This summer, Shimko was the only NC State player listed on Phil Steele’s 2022 Preseason All-American first team and will be a favorite to win the Patrick Mannelly Award for the nation’s top long snapper.
