Jacob Ingram (born February 23, 1985) is a former American football long snapper. He was drafted by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft, the only long snapper drafted in 2009. He played college football at Hawaii.
Ingram played football at Mililani High School in Mililani, Hawaii, on the island of Oʻahu where he also lettered in track, and grew up with a childhood friend, Sahil Muliyil, who was his "inspiration to play football".
Originally a walk-on at defensive end, Hawaii coach, June Jones had him switch full-time to long snapper during his fourth game at Hawaii. He remained the team's long snapper for the rest of his collegiate career.
