Louis-Philippe Ladouceur (born March 13, 1981 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is an American football long snapper who currently plays for the Dallas Cowboys.

Early years

Ladouceur attended Notre Dame High School in Montreal, Canada. He went on to play as a defensive lineman for John Abbott College, which is similar to a college preparatory school, where as a senior he recorded seven sacks, 48 tackles, and a fumble recovery.

He received a scholarship to play at University of California, Berkeley, where he primarily served as the team's long snapper and was a key player on a special teams unit that did not allow a blocked kick in both his junior and senior seasons.

Professional career

New Orleans Saints

Ladouceur was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New Orleans Saints in 2005, but was released just before the season started.

Dallas Cowboys

After playing the third game of the 2005 season against the San Francisco 49ers, the Cowboys decided to stay the entire week in California, to better prepare for their next game against the Oakland Raiders. Because of issues they were having with rookie long snapper Jon Condo, the team decided to replace him with Ladouceur, who got a try out that week, in part because he was a local Bay Area player.[1] In his NFL debut against the San Francisco 49ers, he snapped cleanly on five punts and two field goals. He finished his rookie season with clean snaps on 70 punts, 25 field goals and 28 PATs.

On February 14 2008, he signed a five-year contract through the 2012 season. On February 28, 2013 he signed another five-year contract.[2]

He has provided consistency as the team's long snapper since the start, by being perfect on all of his snaps and never missing a game. In his career, he has made clean snaps on 493 punts, 214 field goals, and 302 PATs, including the playoffs.

Personal life

He married Brooke Worthington from Weatherford, Texas on April 20, 2012 in Virgin Gorda. He has one child born in December 2012.
