The overall winner of the camp was Ross Reiter! Ross, Colorado State commit, was dominant from start to finish and left no doubt he was the best at the camp. He is overflowing with confidence right now and left no doubt he was the best Long Snapper in AZ. Form is excellent, he has very little wasted movement and he is simply snapping pearls one after another. Can’t say enough good things about Reiter and his snapping.

Drew Little was exceptional in GA. I have seen him many times and this was easily the most dominant I have seen Drew. Body is solid and he has a fluid snapping motion that allows the ball to just appear in the punter’s hands. Drew is never stagnant and always improving. NC State got a good one.

FOUR Years Later and TONS to be Thankful For….

I have never been a really big Thanksgiving fan, but for the fourth year in a row, and every year from this point on, this holiday will always remind me just how thankful I need to be. Here is why….

Anyone that has been with Rubio Long Snapping for over four years knows about Damon and his story. Damon is my six year old son who has had quite the journey in the past four years. My wife, Jolie and I, are extra thankful during this time of the year because four years ago we had to go through so much with the little guy.

I’ll recap for those that don’t know his story….

Four years ago, Damon had not been feeling well, off and on, for a couple weeks. Jolie took Damon took to the doctor on the Monday of Thanksgiving week and found out he had jaundice. We were told it was not that uncommon and to just ride it out and come back the following Monday to see Damon’s doctor.

Like always, we go up to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. Damon is not 100% at all but we just figured it was the jaundice and he would be fine. Our local doctors didn’t seem to be nervous, so we weren’t either.

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, my family was still up at my in-laws in Harrison, ID. To put it nicely, Damon acted and looked like crap. Everyone agreed, we needed to take Damon to the hospital. We hopped in the car, went to the nearest big urgent care (about an hour away from Harrison in Coeur d’Alene, ID.) and the doctor ran some tests and said, “Something is just not right with Damon. You guys need to go to Spokane, WA. to see their Children’s Hospital.” Jolie and I both began to get a little nervous here. I mean we are just in sweats and thought we were going to the urgent care to hear “He’s fine, get him some fluids, some aspirin and wait until Monday.” We were going just to be pre-cautious.

We arrived in Spokane, WA (about another 50 minutes away from Coeur d’Alene, ID.) and they had a room set up for us to stay the night. We both started to lose it a bit more as we had no idea we would have to stay the night. They ran more tests on Damon. It is now about 10:00 pm and Damon is done with the whole process. They told us the major doctor would be in on the AM shift and she would be able to tell us a lot more.

Jolie began to come unglued. I assured her that that is just them covering their butts, all will be fine and, if all hell really was breaking loose, they would send us to Seattle, WA. (everyone in the northwest knows, it is truly a CODE RED if they say you have to go to Seattle…the big city)

Well, the morning came, the doctor arrived and said something is really not right with Damon and we were going to be flown to Seattle Children’s Hospital in the next twenty minutes.

Time stopped. Jolie and I lose it. Damon loses it. He has no idea what the heck is happening, but he is just done with all the poking and prodding.

In the plane to Seattle Children's Hospital

In the plane to Seattle Children’s Hospital

I got on the plane with Damon, the pilot and two nurses. Jolie, not in the condition to go, gets on the next flight with the help of the staff in Spokane (they were awesome). I actually only beat her by like 30 minutes.

First of all, let me tell you, Seattle Children’s Hospital knows what they are doing. There is a reason they are one of the top children’s hospitals in the world. Anyways, they run MORE and MORE tests on Damon. Blood test after blood test. If I remember correctly, Damon was getting “poked” every two to three hours for tests (yes, all day long).

We get fully admitted and they sit us down to talk to us. They proceed to tell Jolie and I that Damon had Acute Liver Disease and explain all that is going to happen to him. They told us how he got it was a mystery and it is was caused by a virus that anyone could have gotten as well. We would have to wait and see how his “numbers” progressed. Getting out of the hospital quickly is becoming a luxury we won’t be seeing in the near future.

After a couple of days, maybe four, (it gets blurry here since so much was happening) we have to meet with the MAIN, MAIN doctor for Seattle Children’s Hospital in a meeting room. He tells us that we won’t be leaving Seattle anytime soon, Damon’s liver is not getting better at all, he will need to have a liver transplant, he will be #1 on the list for said transplant and this will all begin to take place within the next four hours. Jolie and I absolutely lose it. I mean lose it. He left us with “We need to do one more blood test in four hours. If those numbers keep going down like they have been, it’s a go and the surgery is happening fast. Be ready.

Not wanting to grasp how severe the whole situation was and not being able to talk from crying so hard, I remember specifically looking at him and saying “Um, I can’t stay here even this weekend, I have a camp in NC and GA that I need to be at.” His response, “You aren’t going anywhere until March.” Time stopped. (First camps I missed but I can’t tell you how great my instructors were that stepped up for Rubio Long Snapping. Thank you again Jeff Abraham and Corey Adams).

The next four hours are a blur. We met with countless people that were beginning the process of telling us how Damon’s life would be different for the rest of his life. How our life would be different. Where we would need to stay for the next couple of months (FYI: If you don’t know about the Ronald McDonald House, you really need to check out this amazing organization and what they do).

Well, fours had passed and Damon gets “poked” again for the final test. The blood test comes back and Damon’s numbers didn’t move. They didn’t go up and they didn’t go down. The doctor and the entire staff were confused. He said, this isn’t necessarily good, but it isn’t bad either. We would need another blood test in another four hours.

Another four hours go by and the next test stayed the same again. And the next. And the next. Hope?

Our room where Damon, Jolie and I stayed for about two weeks.

Our room where Damon, Jolie and I stayed for about two weeks.

Then, a blood test came back with numbers that rose. Then, again, another blood test came back with better numbers. Then, again.

The staff (and I mean staff, they had about ten doctors alone working on Damon’s case since it was so unique for his age) didn’t want us to get anxious but you could even see they sensed something was happening.

They told us that we would have to stay in the hospital for at least another week to see how the numbers progressed but, very cautiously, said this was a good sign.

After two weeks of more tests and nonstop monitoring , we were allowed to leave the hospital but had to stay very close as tests needed to be done every couple of hours.

Then, on December 17th,  after countless days in a hotel, Damon had a doctor visit and they told us we were allowed to go home!

It was a MIRACLE. An absolute MIRACLE!

I re-tell this story since this is the time of the year when it all happened and I want everyone to know just how thankful Jolie and I are for Damon’s health and for all members of the Rubio Long Snapping family. That was a ROUGH month and I wish it on no one…ever. Seeing your child in the hospital is terrible. Absolutely terrible.

Bottom line….

  • Damon is perfectly healthy now. The doctors call it a miracle. The doctors told me they call this type of cure a “OGK” (Only God Knows)
  • Damon is part of a study through Seattle Children’s Hospital since his care was so unique. For a child his age, to get liver disease that quickly absolutely baffled them. They simply don’t get how he got it or how it stopped. His liver went from killing itself to fixing itself within hours. 
  • We can’t thank our neighbors back in Lewiston, ID enough. I call them “The Triangle” since our houses form one. They are the best neighbors you can ever imagine. By the time we drove home (how did we get a car to Seattle? Oh, they drove one out to us….like I said, the best) we walked into our house and they had our Christmas tree up and our house decorated. We lost it again. They are the best.
  • I wrote a blog when this all happened explaining the situation and that I wouldn’t be at the NC and GA camps (I would link to the blog, but due to our old blog company, that blog got “lost”…yes, they have been fired) and on that blog, I wrote how Damon (cough, cough, I) would be updating everyone on his situation through his Twitter account (@DamonDaleRubio). The outpouring of love from everyone (we had random people stopping into see us that were friends of friends of friends) around the country was amazing for the little guy. I highly recommend going to his Twitter account, searching back to November and December a couple years back, and reading his account of what happened.

Please, remember this time of the year to be extra thankful for what you have and tell someone what they mean to you. Have a great Thanksgiving weekend….I know I will.

Karsten Battles was an absolute machine all day in TX. It is so fun to watch battles snap as he locks in and just crushes it….every single time. He has some of the quickest hands in the country and he can easily hit sub .75 on a very consistent basis. Body is looking solid and he is very determined. Just a flat out machine snapping the ball and is easily a scholarship Long Snapper.

Zach Edwards was the overall winner of the speed competition with snaps well under .70…yes, .70. His ball was picking up speed as the day progressed. One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes with his snapping.

Zach Edwards

Dillon Hayes continues to find his way into the finals of each camp with his great poise under pressure and his incredible consistency and accuracy.

Jax Wilson looks like a college tight end right now and has some of the most amazing upside I have seen in years from a Long Snapper. Body is great and his potential is off the charts. When he is on, there is no one better.

Evan Gibson is looking very smooth and strong. Body is powerful and he is really starting to snap with lots of confidence. Love his attitude.

Tre Rubio was snapping a great spiral all day and had many snaps sub .75. Tre was on fire all day and looked very impressive.

Just like last week, Kameron was the overall champion as well as the speed champion. His confidence is building and he doesn’t look to be letting up on the gas. He left no doubt of his dominance in the finals by only hitting threes! Not to mention, every single three Kameron hit, was a pure “swish” going into the opening. It was incredible to watch as he only took three snaps total in the finals. Kameron is an absolute workhorse that continues to improve on a daily basis with his Long Snapping, attitude and athleticism. As for snapping the ball, Kameron is at the college level right now.

Recap of the 2017 WA Fall Camp

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on October 22, 2017 for the northwest’s fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following WA, Rubio Long Snapping will head to CA on 10/29, TX on 11/12, NC on 11/19, GA on 12/3, AZ on 12/10, OH on 12/17 and then the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 1-15, 2018.

Long Snappers from WA, MN, CA, NV, OR, ID, CO & CAN all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the NJ Camp…

The overall winner of the camp was Kameron Hawkins. Kam is a 2020 Long Snapper from CA that was absolutely dominant all day long in Seattle. There is literally no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class in CA, and the entire country. Kam actually was the speed and RSI champ of the camp. This definitely does not happen often but was well deserved with Kam with his excellent accuracy and speeds that were sub .7 when it mattered most. 

Kameron is an absolute workhorse that continues to improve on a daily basis with his Long Snapping, attitude and athleticism. Very impressed with this kid’s drive and never slow down attitude.

The finals in WA were between Kameron Hawkins (CA, 2020), Axel Raarup (MN, 2018), Kellen Dyer (ID, 2018), Karl Von Einsiedel (Canada, 2020), JJ Lindsay (CA, 2019) and Ben Schumock (WA, 2020).

You can see the full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Matt Tokos was an absolute machine all day in WA. He could easily have one of the tightest spirals in the country as his ball almost sticks to your hands when it hits. His snaps are quick with times easily in the .7s and his attitude is excellent. He is going to make any coach he plays for extremely happy on and off the field.

Kellen Dyer was snapping a very smooth and accurate ball that took him all the way to the finals and was about 3 inches from winning the whole camp! Dyer’s attitude is great and he works hard. The more he increases his overall athleticism and strength, the better he will be in the long run.

Axel Raarup came out on a solo trip all the way from MN and definitely did not waste the trip. Kid is VERY athletic and can rip the ball back to the punter with consistent sub .80 times. Fun to watch this kid move and snap. Great upside.

Morgan White came all the way from NV and left no doubt he has all of the tools to be a great one for his class. Thick and strong with tons of power that just needs to be pushed in the right direction.

Anthony Laveroni is 2017 Long Snapper that came out to get finely tuned to walk on to a major university this spring and he showed me that he can definitely do it. Kid has great size and has the ability to get the ball sub .80. Increasing his athleticism and confidence will be huge for Anthony.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
JJ Lindsay came to the northwest from Nor Cal and represented the Sunshine state very well. This left has great form and moved really well side to side. The more he snaps with pure confidence and trusts his great form, the more dominant he will be in his class. Great kid.

James Durr is looking thick and gaining good strength throughout his entire body. Ball can dip under .80 and the more he can do that consistently, the higher up the rankings he will go. Love his attitude.

Josiah Hirsch is a thick and powerful Long Snapper that could easily be a top 10 Long Snapper in his class when he realizes just how powerful and strong he truly is.

Alex Sheehan moved well side to side on his feet and was snapping the ball with tons of force all day. If he can control the spiral and lock down his accuracy, he will dominate VEGAS XXXI. I absolutely love the oomph he puts on each and every single snap.

Gavin Gately is dripping with potential. Big, tall man with an excellent frame that a college strength coach is going to manipulate into a monster. His hands are really quick.

Neo Sather is extremely athletic and has very quick hands. Locking down his spiral and increasing the overall speed of the ball is gong to be huge.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Michael Tokos was impressive to me, and I think himself as well, all day in the northwest. It was funny to watch Tokos become more and more surprised each time he would hear his snap times as if to say “WOW! Am I really snapping the ball that fast?!?!?!?” Yes, you are Tokos and keep up the good work.

Karl von Einseidel was one of the more athletic Long Snappers in his class (and at the camp for that matter). Raw Long Snapper that crushed all the agility tests and has great upside.

Cameron Landes showed me some great footwork and that he should easily be a factor on the punt coverage team. The more he can get his upper body to get through and not up first, the faster his ball will be in the long run. Great attitude.

Ben Schumock had very quick hands and tons of upside. His snaps can easily hit sub .80 and his potential is incredible. Smoothing out his overall snapping motion is going to be huge as we head to VEGAS XXXI.

Grayson Pibal is sitting on a mountain of potential. One of the smoothest Long Snappers out there and the more he can snap with just raw power, the better he will be.

Jack Laurin was great with his athleticism and his attitude. Locking down his spiral and continuing to put on size will increase his overall snap speeds.

Notables: Joel Antush, Colin Dolynski, Dakota Lepine, Tommy Sullivan

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS and BEYOND
Alec Eckert showed great promise with his very long frame. Confidence is going to be huge for Alec has he continues to progress. When he allows his strong body to just rip the ball back to the punter, he can easily get bus .80 snap speeds at 15 yards. The less Alec thinks, the better he will do in the long run. Great upside and he can be as good as he wants to be.

Devin Claridge is an intense Long Snapper with good power and balance. His upside is very solid.

Anna DeCaprio (2022) has improved a great deal over the past year as she is now very close to using all of her lower half and is beginning to trust her form more and more.

Jackson Plieth (2022) impressed me with his overall attitude and athleticism for his age.

Blake Gorski (2022) shows great promise and excellent improvement over the past couple of months.

Rubio Long Snapping Year Round Package

Rubio Long Snapping has always been about the athletes above everything else, the unmistakable #1 priority.  Our mission is to deliver the very best technical training to fuel growth and development as a Long Snapper, and secondly to provide and the best possible exposure to NCAA and NFL Football Coaches and Staffs.

It is a rather simple formula.  We provide the framework for athletes to grow their Long Snapping skill through drills and exercises that translate into technique, accuracy, and speed over time.  The more frequently we have the opportunity to work with Long Snappers at Regional and National Camps the faster we see the development typically.  However merely attending camps alone will not work, it is the dedication to hard work in between camps that will pay the greatest dividend.  As the athlete grows and develops, Rubio Long Snapping creates awareness and exposure to NCAA and NFL  Coaches through our personal relationships, our website, and via Social Media better than any other Long Snapping instructor.  Camp attendance is the basis for us being able to document growth and development through video, competition results, and rank athletes within each class.  Rankings are based solely on how the athletes at every camp perform and compete with their peers, those who attend more frequently give themselves the most chances succeed and thereby climb the rankings.

That being said, Rubio Long Snapping fully understands the enormous commitment that it takes to get your athlete to Regional and National Camps.  It is a huge commitment and investment of time and money.  And while Rubio Long Snapping is in fact a business, it has always been about the athletes first and foremost.  So in an attempt to help provide athletes and their families with the greatest possible access to Regional and National Events we would like to announce the 2017 / 2018 Rubio Long Snapping All Access Program.

Starting with our 2017 Fall Camp Schedule, our Rubio Long Snapping Families will be able to pay one flat cost per year for their athletes to attend all of the Regional and National Camps they would like for one fee.  This new program will cover Fall, Spring, and Summer Camps (in any city / state) and both the January and May Las Vegas Events.  The Rubio Long Snapping All Access Program will start with the Fall 2017 Camps and run through the Summer 2018 Camps.  The only camps this program will not include are The Top 12 Camp and the Underclassmen Invitational, those camps will be separate costs to attend.  This program is a direct result of feedback from our Rubio Long Snapping Families, and we are thrilled to offer it.  We hope it is an accurate reflection of how we feel about having most opportunities to develop Long Snappers in the coming year.

Recap of the CA Summer Camp

Tanner Carew, Casey Hales, Jason Bertoni and Wesley Bertoni made up the CA Staff!

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on July 27th, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping traveled the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Long Snappers from OR, CA, OR, NV, PA & AZ all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

For the overall RSI Scores from the CA Camp, please go HERE

Speed Champion, Jac Casasante and Overall Champion, Max Nieland 

The overall winner of the camp was Max Nieland (CA, ’18). Max was solid all day long in CA and really caught fire late in the day. On the Target, in the finals, he only missed a couple of times and his misses were by inches. His accuracy is excellent, consistency is off the charts and he has an excellent attitude. Max does an excellent job of not remaining stagnant and is always improving. Very proud of Max and how far he has come with his Long Snapping.

The finals in CA were between Peter Bowden (56.76), JJ Lindsay (55.26), Matt Tokos (46.15), Max Nieland (45.32), Cruz Rubio (43.42) and Simon Samarzich (41.67). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
– Jac Casasante was the speed champion of the day with 15 yard snaps in the low .6s! His attitude is incredible, he can run with the best of them and his ball is obviously at college speeds right now. He is going to be a great pick up for a college coach.
– Matt Tokos had a great day making it into the finals of the speed and accuracy competitions. Excellent attitude and one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. He is going to be a great asset to a coach on and off the field.
– Gabriel Cervantes is a long, pure athlete that is improving week to week. He is a coachable Long Snapper with excellent upside and a frame that can easily put on another forty pounds throughout college.
– Hunter Becker is a smart Long Snapper that is thick, strong and has great form. High academics make him a big pickup for the right college. Always improving.
– Morgan White has great power and the ability to really rip the ball back to the punter. I was impressed with his size and upside. Locking down the spiral and consistency will be huge for him.
– Chance Nelson is a great JC Long Snapper that runs like the wind and has solid accuracy with every ball he snaps to the punter.
– Robert Fiene is a strong and athletic Long Snapper with great upper body follow through.
Notables: Michel Heller, Jack Hughes, Jacob Mauch, Dante Mirogilo, Axel Raarup, Wyatt Rech, Mason Somerman, Tanner Williams

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
– Simon Samarzich is a pure athlete with great form and excellent consistency. Made it into the finals, again, and showed great snaps throughout the day. Smooth and accurate with an excellent attitude.
– Luke Rizzo looked very powerful and was snapping the ball with some solid confidence all day. When he snaps with absolute full power, he is easily one of the best in his class.
– JJ Lindsay looked extremely smooth throughout the day and left no doubt he has been working hard and smart the past couple of months. Keep a close eye on him this fall and at VEGAS XXXI.
– Jack Landherr has the ability to be one of the best Long Snappers in his class. Good frame that is strong and still has room to put on some good size over the next two years of high school.
– Dean Lau is one the purest athletes in his class. He has put on some good size and has quick hands to get the ball back to the punter with good pop.
– Peter Bowden had the top RSI of the camp and was impressive in CA. Built very long with room to put on some good weight. Form is good and he can get the ball ball back in the high .7s to low .8s. Once he makes sure he is really getting his upper body all the way through and not turning so quickly after the snap, he will dominate his class. Keep an eye on Bowden.
– Kyler Greenway looked solid with good form and consistency. Listens well and is very coachable. Good upside on Kyler.
Notables: Josiah Hirsch, Nathan Hedberg, Brian Rea, Jesse Vasquez, Nick Wade

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
– Kameron Hawkins continues on his path to greatness. Form is excellent, ball is clean and his hands are quick. He is now able to get the ball, consistently, under .78 and he shows no signs of letting his foot off the gas. Great Long Snapper on and off the field.
– Cruz Rubio is a big and powerful Long Snapper that can already get the ball in the .7s. Moves well on his feet and has good form. Making sure he is leaning back, following through with his fingers and keeping up with his athleticism could push him to the top of his class.
– Aaron Estrada looked very solid athletically and with his snapping. His hands are quick and that really helps get the ball out of the gate well. Estrada is a very hard working Long Snapper that will be an asset to any team he is on.
– Michael Munoz handles pressure really well and has all of the tools to be a great one. Built with good length and a smooth snap, the sky is the limit for Munoz.
– Jaden Sanchez is beyond strong and built for his age. Moves well on his feet and has one of the most powerful balls in his class. Locking down the spiral is going to be massive for Sanchez moving up the rankings.
– Cody White had a great day in CA. I thought he looked solid at the Underclassmen Invitational and he went beyond that on Sunday. Really impressed with the direction “Drago” is headed.
– Michael Tokos is beyond consistent and might be the overall quickest Long Snapper his class. I love his attitude and how the ball gets out of the gate. Getting fully set and putting on some size will be huge for Tokos.
– Tony Villarreal looked beyond smooth in CA. His ball just flies out of his hands and appears in the punters hand. I love to watch him snap and I know his punter will love catching snaps from him.
Notables: Brendan Duffy, Davis Salom, Troy Sicaeros

TOP 2021 & 2022 LONG SNAPPERS
– Cameron Warchuck showed great speed for his age with snaps to the punter already hitting in the .7s. Big and strong Long Snapper with great upside.
– JT Greep was solid with nice form, a great attitude and consistent speeds.
– Jamie Feldermann has good form and a very accurate ball.
– Cody Allen showed great athleticism and accuracy.

RSI Scores from the CA Summer Camp

Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair.

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 90 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). The highest I have ever encountered is a 86.96 by Karsten Battles! The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid.

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush)

Recap of the Underclassmen Invitational

On July 20-21, Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual Underclassmen Invitational. This camp has quickly grown to be a favorite amongst Long Snappers, the parents and the staff of Rubio Long Snapping. It is basically like a mini TOP 12 Camp with Long Snappers from the classes of 2019-2022.

Day 1 was filled with instruction, lively competitions, social media seminar by Terry Crosby (always a good time), a game show (Long Snappers dominated!) and a catered pasta dinner for all participants and their families. One of the great things about this camp is some of the meetings are done without the other party. For instance, when Terry Crosby was speaking to the parents, the specialists were in another area learning about nutrition and lifting. Then, on the flip side, when Crosby was speaking to the kids, the parents were not in the room. This definitely leads to some great moments within the Rubio Long Snapping family.

Day 2 was all about competition and one-on-one instruction. When the Long Snappers weren’t going head to head on The Rubio Target, they, and their parents, were brought over to work with Rubio in a one-on-one setting. Time and time again, you could hear “Ahhhhhh!” “Ohhhhhhhhh” “I knew there was something off, thanks for clearing it up Rubio!” It was a great four hours for all involved and everyone got better!

The overall winner was Luke Payne (2019, GA). Luke was hot off a win at the Rubio Long Snapping GA Summer Camp and he left no doubt he is headed for greatness. His ball is beyond accurate, he has good consistency and the kid handles pressure like a true champion. If any Long Snapper is going against Luke and he scores first, the game is usually over.

Free Fall Camp Contest!

As always, Rubio Long Snapping is offering up a way to attend a Rubio Long Snapping camp in the fall for free! I usually end up having one winner but this time I am going to do something different….I am going to have one possible winner from each location Rubio Long Snapping is running a camp. Therefore, there could be possibly EIGHT winners announced when the contest is over!!! So, if you say live in Idaho and win, you will earn a free admission to the WA camp on October 22nd. If you live in Florida and win, you will earn a free admission to the GA camp on December 3rd.

If you have been on the line at all lately, you have seen the Drive By Dunk Challenge. Some are incredible and some don’t end up so well….

Bottom line, here is the contest…

WHO: Any Long Snapper from 6th grade to 2nd year of JC that wants to earn a free admission to a Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp!

WHAT: The Long Snapper must film themselves doing FIVE random snaps in random locations with a lot of pressure on themselves. The better the snap with the more hoopla around it (think massive crowd), the more chance you have of winning. The Long Snapper can’t break any laws while doing this and safety must be the priority. I am thinking more like snapping at a food court in a mall and not on top of a moving car. I will take less than five entries but I will not take more than five. You can only enter one total video to me, so make sure all snaps are on that video. Any entries that break any laws or are deemed unsafe by the Rubio Long Snapping staff, will not be accepted.

WHEN: The Long Snapper must have the five videos submitted on YouTube with the title, Rubio Long Snapping 2017 #DriveBySnapping Contest. That video must be sent to my email, Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com, by no later than August 26th at noon pst. Any entries after that, will be not be accepted.

WHERE: Where you have the courage to snap a ball in public for great footage….as long as it is safe and you are not breaking the law

WHY: To earn a free admission to a Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp!

 

UPDATE: Here are the winners. Many entries were disqualified for not following the directions…

Recap of the TOP 12 Camp

The Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 Camp was on July 17-19, 2017 and featured, quite possibly, the most talented group of Long Snappers to ever come through the system. There was Long Snappers committed to school such as Virginia Tech, Colorado State, Air Force along with offers from Oregon, Marshall, you know what, it might be easier just to show you….

This TOP 12 camp was different from years past as 20 Long Snappers were chosen from the January Vegas Event, 20 were chosen from the May Vegas Event along with five wild cards. All of these terrific Long Snappers competed against one another to see who the actual TOP 12 would be on Wednesday. As if that wasn’t enough pressure, the whole thing was going to be filmed for a new web series called the TOP 12 Series!

So, we still had the annual belly flop contest with the kickers (I am choosing not to think about the outcome so we will move past it) and the night out on the town with the kids to see how they handle themselves socially. That was the same, but the exit interviews were different where we actually met with each Long Snapper and let them know right then and there if they had earned the TOP 12 gold shirt! You want to talk about stressful for them and myself.

If you are looking to see all of the photos put up by Nick Monaghan, I highly recommend checking out his website. He is the best in the business and took thousands of photos over the three day span to provide the most exposure for the Long Snappers.

Great shot by Nick Monaghan in the War Room during one of the exit interviews.

After all of the snapping, dinner, socializing, and interviews, the TOP 12 Long Snappers in the country were (in alphabetical order)…

The overall camp champion was Oscar Shadley. The Virginia Tech commit left no doubt he was the top overall Long Snapper of the group with incredible athleticism. His ball seemed to get quicker and more powerful as the days progressed. No matter what was thrown at him, Shadley dominated.

Here is a detailed recap of each TOP 12 Long Snapper followed by a quick write up on all that attended as they are all deserving of recognition.

Karsten Battles – Thick, strong and powerful Long Snapper that locks in and rarely misses. Very detail oriented Long Snapper that is like a machine out on the field. He already holds several offers and will make any college coach happy over the next couple years.

Cade Long is one of the most efficient Long Snappers in the country. Rarely, and I mean very rarely, has a bad ball. Accuracy and consistency are his strengths. Body is getting bigger and stronger. Overall, a tremendous Long Snapper.

Antonio Ortiz – might have the most potential of any Long Snapper that has ever gone through Rubio Long Snapping. Antonio has an absolute tremendous frame and runs like wind. Type of Long Snapper that could play for the next twenty years. If he puts his mind to it, he could be the best to come out of Rubio Long Snapping.

Marco Ortiz – simply duplicate what I said for Antonio. Marco is a little less polished that Antonio at this point but still has just as much upside. Both are full easy scholarship picks and any coach would be lucky to have them.

Roen McCullough – Strong and powerful Long Snapper that can snap a ball right through the punter. Kid is a machine on the field and works like a horse to be the best. Handing pressure really well and love is attitude.

Kyle Petrucci – He continues to improve athletically and with his snapping. Still has some slight issues with getting his upper body all the way through but his overall size is so dominant, that it can be overlooked. When he really drives his upper body through, he can put the ball in the low .7s and right in The Rubio Zone. Smart Long Snapper with tons of upside.

Gabriel Pugh – a 2019 Long Snapper that has one of the most powerful snaps I have ever witnessed. His ball almost feels like a wet, heavy ball about to break your hands. Built like a college tight end and he still has two years left of high school. Upside for him is off the charts and I love his attitude.

John Raines – Quick hands and a very crisp ball that really flies out of his hands. Recent Ole Miss commit never stops improving and is always right in the finals but no one really ever notices. Excellent Long Snapper that is truly dedicated to his craft.

Ross Reiter – Great personality along with being a tremendous Long Snapper makes Reiter one of the best recruits of his class. Ball is beyond tight and always right on target. Body is improving by the second and he has one of the most crisp and precise balls you will ever encounter.

Simon Samarzich – extremely athletic 2019 Long Snapper that snaps a smooth and consistent ball. The more he works on his craft, the better he will be. Coming out of his shell with his snapping and his personality is making Simon a major recruit over the next couple of years.

Oscar Shadley – He left literally no doubt he is the top Long Snapper in the country. Incredibly impressed with how well he handles adversity and just gets better with more pressure. Ball is beyond fast with snap speeds under .65 and he just gets more accurate with the more snaps he takes.

Quentin Skinner – 2019 Long Snapper that could end up being the best to roll through Rubio Long Snapping. Extremely strong athlete that looks like a college linebacker and is as strong as one (already can bench 400 lbs!). I have watched Mad Dog snap in tons of camps and he was the best I have seen him this good. Just flat out awesome!

Rest of the best in alphabetical order…..

Ryan Aguilar – Athletic with tons of potential. Smoothing out the consistency will make him a sure fire recruit.

Matt Aloni – Thick bodied and smooth Long Snapper that can be the best in the upper east coast….easily.

Brock Assel – Air Force commit with tons of power and a solid attitude. Locking down his accuracy puts him at the top.

Brenden Bentley – Snapped a powerful ball with good consistency. Locking down his spiral and quickness will push him up the ladder.

Jac Casasante – One of the fastest Long Snappers with his ball and feet in the country.

Gabriel Cervantes – Long, pure athlete with tons of upside. Smoothing it all out will get him to the top.

AJ Covan – He might be the most accurate Long Snapper to ever go through Rubio Long Snapping. Made it to the finals and literally just doesn’t miss The Rubio Zone. If you are looking for pure accuracy, there is literally no one better.

Zach Drevno – Thick and strong Long Snapper that has improved a ton over the past year. Continuing to lead with his elbows with create more overall speed on the ball. Tremendous attitude.

Payton Dunagan – Incredibly flexible Long Snapper that hands the ball to the punter. Locking down his spiral will be huge for Payton.

Evan Dvorchik – Great competitor with a solid snap. The tighter his body gets and more athletic he becomes, the more of a full fledged recruit he becomes.

Zach Edwards – One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. Smooth and consistent. The more confidence he gets, the more dominant he becomes.

Ron Gaines – Massive Long Snapper with a smooth ball that has solid accuracy and consistency . Snapping with full power and increasing his athleticism makes him top dog.

Evan Gibson – He is improving drastically and is already one of the top Long Snappers in his class. More overall speed pushes him to the top.

Maddie Golden – incredible Long Snapper that can rip the ball back to the punter. Also overflowing with an amazing personality. Easily the top of Long Snapper that could dominate on and off the field.

Kameron Hawkins – Late invite to the TOP 12 Camp and it was well deserved. Only a 2020 Long Snapper but already is snapping at D1 speeds and accuracy. Athleticism and strength will be huge. No one works harder and smarter.

Dillon Hayes – Incredibly accurate and consistent Long Snapper. Locking down his spiral is the key to greatness.

Hayden Hood – Athletic Long Snapper with massive upside. Getting bigger and more powerful is going to be key for Hood.

Noah Howell – Might be the most improved Long Snapper in his class over the past year. Built thick and strong. Great upside.

Clay James – Recent University of Miami commit is beyond accurate and consistent with his snaps. Strength with his snaps and consistency of speed will be huge for Clay.

Jarrett Key – Looked solid and was impressive. Overall strength is going to be huge for Key advancing up the rankings.

Drew Little – Easily one of the top 2019 Long Snappers in his class. Strong with a very a efficient snap. If his spiral was completely locked down, he would have had a TOP 12 spot.

Chance Nelson – Massive upside on this Long Snapper that is a tremendous JC athlete. Kid flies down the field and is a massive factor on punt coverage. Making sure his ball is spiraling is the key.

Jude Pedrozo – Thick and strong Long Snapper that will be as good as he wants to be. Confidence with his snapping will be huge. Incredible personality that can dominate a team.

Randen Plattner – One of the most impressive Long Snappers at the camp and right on the cusp of making the TOP 12. Consistency of speed is the key for Randen.

Austin Riggs – Long Snapper that rises to the level of competition around him. Great personality that is going to be successful in whatever he chooses to do.

Luke Rizzo – Overall dedication is going to be key Rizzo.

Michael Vinson – Really impressed with Vinson’s attitude and snaps. Making sure his spiral is fully locked down and continuing to build on his strength will be key.

Nathan Weneta – athletic Long Snapper that was very close to making the TOP 12. Increasing his overall strength and confidence will be huge for him as we go through the next couple of years.

Jax Wilson – Incredible upside and he could easily end up being one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Smoothing out his snapping motion will be huge for Jax.

Jacob Zuhr – 2020 Long Snapper that left no doubt he is the best in his class with his powerful snaps that can easily hit sub .70 and he is only going to be a sophomore!!!

Recap of the NJ Summer Camp (7/15/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on July 15th, 2017 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this upcoming summer and fall (dates being posted soon) instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Long Snappers from NJ, VA, PA, NY and MD all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

Overall Champion Joe Shimko with Corey Adams

For the overall RSI scores from the NJ camp, please go HERE

The overall champion of the camp was Joe Shimko. Joe has been a Rubio Long Snapper for quite some time now and has shown tremendous improvement in a short period of time. Not only was he the overall champion, he was also the speed champion, beating out Austin Mosier in a sudden death finals. Joe is a great kid who works very hard.

The finals were between Declan McCauley (31.03), Nick Wissinger (28.57), Joe Shimko (23.08), Joe McCabe (21.88), Jake Foggia (19.78), and Zach Zimmerman (18.56).

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Nick Wissinger had a great day in NJ. He snaps the ball with a lot of aggression and power. The ball jumps back towards the punter in a hurry and is very accurate at the same time. Needs to watch picking the ball a tiny bit as he snaps and watch his weight distribution, but he showed great coachability and know he will work on those immediately.

Brian Richards showed a tremendous amount of athletic and physical talent during the camp in NJ. Massive human being who looks like he could play TE in college right now. Very raw and with some fine tuning of his form he can be excellent. Snaps with a lot of power and will only get better from here on out.

Kenneth King soaks up every single thing you say to him and works to incorporate them immediately on the field. Beyond coachable and has a great attitude. Has come a long way with his form, and with more consistent and explosive snapping he will see a night and day difference in his speed.

Matt Gannon may have been one of the most improved snappers at the camp. His form looks night and day difference from the last NJ regional camp, and has a bright future ahead of him if he continues to improve like he has. Very good athlete who crushed the agility drill.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Austin Mosier is so big and powerful for his age it is almost unfair. He was ripping the ball back all day and was barely missing. The scary thing is he has more power in him if he can get his butt down just a tad more and use his legs fully. Very high ceiling for this snapper and am excited to see him improve!

Joe Shimko was great all day. Snaps a very quick ball and his accuracy continues to improve. Absolutely destroyed the agility drill and showed he can be effective in coverage after snapping the ball. His blocking has improved as well and he is starting to develop into the full package.

Zach Zimmerman had a great first outing at his first Rubio Long Snapping camp. His form is darn near perfect, just needs to get his legs engaged a little sooner and it will be flawless. He made the later rounds of the speed competition with his quick hands. Am excited to see how much progress he has made at his next Rubio Long Snapping camp!

Brian Cocciolillo showed some very technically sound form all day and showed a lot of improvement on the minor details as well. As he continues to snap harder and more power things will click for him. On the verge of it all coming together and jumping up the charts.

Andrew McGimpsey is a very large and athletic snapper who has all the tools to be great. His frame is so long that if he can get his legs fully involved in the snap, he will snap bullets back to the punter. Great kid and attitude and know he will take everything taught at the camp home with him and get better.

Michael O’Keefe had a strong showing all day. Very strong kid who shows flashes of excellence when everything works together. Becoming more consistent will be the next major hurdle for him, but know that with continued drill work and smart training he can achieve it!

Thomas Dougherty has tons of upside that he on the verge of capturing. Very coachable kid who was hungry to get better all day. Very close to it all coming together for him, and am excited to see his improvement at the next Rubio Long Snapping Camp!

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Bryce Eimer was excellent all day, and his snapping well beyond his age. Snaps a very hard ball and the only time he misses is high because the ball continues to climb back at such a great rate to the punter. Sky is the limit for Bryce and expect big things out of him in the next few years.

Declan McCauley is so big and smooth it is unbelievable, and then factor his age into the equation and it is unheard of! Will be able to get more speed on his ball when he can incorporate his legs fully, and when that happens there is a very strong chance he could be one of the top snappers in his class.

Jake Foggia has improved so much over the past 6 months it is exciting to see. He snaps a very smooth, catchable, accurate ball. Once he is able to consistently snap hard and gain a bit more strength he is going to put a lot of people in his class on notice.

Joe McCabe is a very accurate snapper which tons of potential. Once he can fine tune some things with his lower body and his follow though, everything will come together for him nicely. Great kid who is very coachable and look forward to seeing him at the next Rubio Long Snapping camp!

Frank Lord had a very productive camp, showing a lot of improvement throughout the day. He is a good athlete with great flexibility, and as he continues to work on the small details in his snap, he will see rapid improvement. Snapping hard and trusting his form will be big for him, but seeing how coachable he was on the field and in the class room I know he will be up for the challenge!

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS
Zack Taylor shows tremendous skill for his age. His form is off the charts and the only thing he will need is time. More strength and size will be big for him, just needs to be patient. Excited to see him develop over the next four years!

Paul Meyers is dripping with so much potential it is scary. He is very tall with a great long frame. Getting his form down now prior to putting on muscle will be extremely important, and he is already well on his way. His ceiling is very high, just needs to be persistent and put in work – which I know he will!

RSI Scores from the NJ Summer Camp

Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair.

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 90 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). The highest I have ever encountered is a 86.96 by Karsten Battles! The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid.

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush)

Recap of the College Camp

Overall Champion Kyle Varnell of UAB

Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual college camp for Long Snappers either currently in a four year university or those headed to one this fall. Long Snappers from all over the map came to Tampa, FL. to train with and against the best in the world of college football.

The winner of the overall competition was Kyle Varnell of the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Kyle is a long athlete that moves very well on his feet. His ball is very smooth and catchable with excellent speed. Upside on Kyle is off the charts. He has a tremendous personality and is definitely the type of person that will be successful in whatever he chooses to do in life.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire Saturday and Sunday in Tampa. His form is darn near perfect and he is snapping the ball with a lot of power and agression. The thicker and stronger he gets, the better his overall power will be as he moves towards the NFL.

Steven Nixon of Mercer was excellent all weekend. He is strong, built well, moves like an athlete and is extremely consistent with his snapping. Not uncommon for Nixon to snap the ball in the .6s and right on the punter’s hip. Great overall personality and a Long Snapper the next generation could look up to.

Damon Johnson of USC (Southern Cal) was throwing absolute heat all weekend. Ball never even came close to .75 or higher. Damon is a very athletic Long Snapper that is driven to be the best in the country. Very powerful ball in short or long snaps.

Anthony Ratliff of East Carolin University was solid from start to finish with very accurate and consistent snaps to the punters and holders. Physically fit Long Snapper with great form and a smooth snap.

Logan Klusman of the Kansas Jayhawks was very sharp in Tampa. Body is maturing and he is snapping a very smooth and accurate ball. Ball can jump at the punter. The quicker his hands get at the start, the better he will be in the long run.

Jonathan Scandrett of Florida International University was throwing some very fast snaps back on both days. Listens well and has good upside. Ball could sting a punter if they aren’t paying attention. Built very athletically and once he extends a bit more, his ball will be more accurate and even quicker.

Peter Snodgrass of Northwestern looked extremely solid all weekend. Just heading into college and already looks like he has been snapping at the college level for years. Great upside and Snodgrass is definitely one to watch over the next couple of years.

Ian Lauvai of Sacramento State had a great camp. Thick and strong Long Snapper that was snapping pearls non-stop to the punters. Big fan of his demeanor and how calm he is under pressure.

Elias McMurry of Appalachian State is powerful and has done a great job transforming his body into that of a college athlete. When he gets his eyes through, he is as good as anyone in the country.

Grant Gustafson of Texas A&M probably had the most upside of any Long Snapper in attendance. He also can play tight end and he definitely looks the part. NFL frame right now and he can snap an NFL ball when he just lets it go.

Notables: Carson Tebbetts of StonyBrook, Chris Clore of the Colorado School of Mines, Wyman Baxley of South Carolina, Mike Curry of Penn State, Jackson Quiggle of NC State, Steven Wethli of Youngstown State, Aaron Blaylock of the Citadel and Kanyon Combs
