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.

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.

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

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.

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…

Long Snappers from IL, NE, MS, IA, OH, KS, LA, IN, MO, KY, OR & WI 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 IL Camp, please go HERE

Overall Champion Jude Pedrozo and Speed Champion Pat Szczesniak

The overall champion of the camp was Jude Pedrozo. Jude is no stranger to winning at Rubio Long Snapping Camps as he is a former VEGAS winner and is always hovering around the finals. Very good body, great attitude and the ability to handle pressure really well make Jude one of the best in his class.

The finals were between Ross Hinders (60.87), Brendan Beattie (60.81), Charlie Gambs (45.83), Derek Hahn (28.57), Jude Pedrozo (24.42) & George Walsh (23.08). The full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Michael Vinson had a great day in IL. He has some good size, moves pretty darn well on his feet and can snap a nice ball that can hit in the low .7s. Listens well and is very coachable. Excellent attitude and Vinson is going to make his college coach really happy in the next couple of years.

Ross Hinders throws some severe heat and flies down the field. No doubt he will be a factor on the punt coverage team. Ball is really powerful and his upside is off the charts.

Derek Hahn out of Nebraska continues to improve greatly. He did really well in IL and made it all the way to the finals. He was only a couple of inches away from going very far into the finals brackets. Great attitude and always getting better.

Levi McKinney showed great athleticism and can hover in the .7s. Really like his upside and attitude.

Notables: Alex Rosenbaum, Ryan Jurczak, Nathan Slusarski

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo was excellent all day. His personality is off the charts and will be a leader on and off the field. Body is strong and he can snap a powerful ball. Accuracy and consistency are solid. Moves well on his feet. Great upside.

Patrick Szczesniak was only able to perform in half the camp due to prior commitment but left no doubt in half time time that he has the ability to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. He should be very focused on the TOP 12 Camp next year.

Brendan Beattie throws some severe heat and hovers in the low. 7s. His ball really powers back to the punter. He moves like a cheetah and will definitely be a factor on the punt coverage team.

Charlie Gambs made it deep into the final and had a great day in IL. Love his attitude and upside. Very smooth Long Snapper

Brad George is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. George snaps a really fast ball that is consistently in the mid to low .7s. Strong Long Snapper.

Samuel Wiesbrook is tall drink of water with excellent footwork and great upside. Ball is accurate and very consistent.

David O’Keefe showed tremendous upside and a smooth, consistent snap. The potential on this kid is off the charts.

Ethan Warren is strong, athletic and consistent with his snapping.

Michael Wojciechowski is very smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that will just get better and better as he gets bigger and stronger.

Nathan Tokar is really doing well in transforming his body and it is impacting his snapping in a great way.

Tyler Shaw was very impressive in IL was great snap speeds and a strong frame. Great upside.

Notables: George Walsh, Aidan Hall, Owen Hall, Collin Kinniry, Thomas Peterson, Joey Wilson

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Christo Kelly was excellent in IL. He has an excellent and athletic frame that moved very well all over the field. Ball is very quick for his age with times in the mid to low .7s. He has the ability to be one of the best in his class and should definitely focus on the TOP 12 Camp this January.

Jackson Worthen has some of the best form in the country and is close to greatness. Very excited to see him lock down his consistency and continuing to grow. Quiet and he listens really well.

Robert McCrory is a big framed Long Snapper with quick hands that can get the  ball in the low .8s.

Zachary Pitsenberger was impressive in the way he handled pressure and moved on his feet.

Jesse Smith was one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class with accurate snaps in the mid to low .8s.

Mick Bastuga has good form, a great attitude and a really smooth snap. Getting bigger and stronger along with really driving his upper body through will greatly increase his overall speed on the ball.

Notables: Jaden Mueller

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker is a 2021 Long Snapper that could probably start for most high school varsity teams right now. His ball is quick and he can get it into the .7s and he is just going into his freshman year!

Brock Donati has a good strong frame, a solid atttiude and moved well on his feet. Great upside on Donati

Sam Long is big, strong and moved really well on his feet.

Recap of the GA Summer Camp (7/11/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on July 11th, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Long Snappers from GA, TN, FL, KY, AL & MS 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 GA Camp, please go HERE

Overalll Camp Champ, Luke Payne and Speed Champ, Quentin Skinner

The overall champion of the camp was Luke Payne (GA, ’19). Luke caught fire late in the back and didn’t let up. He handles pressure really well and is very accurate with his snapping. Smooth Long Snapper that is coming along nicely and can snap consistently in the low .8s. Really proud of Luke and how he is progressing.

The finals were between Evan Dvorchik (42.31), JC Vega (42.25), Zach Lassiter (36.49), Quentin Skinner (36.00), Carter Short (35.53) and Luke Payne (33.75). The full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Evan Dvorchik looked great out in GA. He continues to fine tune his body and he is leaving no doubt he can snap at the next level. Strong Long Snapper that can snap in the low .7s when he is on. I am looking forward to watching Evan snap at the TOP 12 Camp. Great attitude.

Dillon Hayes was smooth as silk in GA. His ball speed was picking up really nicely and he continues to be one of he most accurate Long Snappers in his class. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for him in the coming months.

Camren Wood was pretty impressive in GA. He has grown and put on some good size which is helping with the speed of his snaps. He has the ability to snap in the low .7s and he has excellent form.

Notables: Michael Shible, Patrick Rahiya, Nicholas Gleaton

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Quentin Skinner had a great day in GA with his very large and strong frame. He was the faster overall Long Snapper in attendance and salon one of the most athletic. Form is excellent and he simply doesn’t miss when he follows all the way through to the punter. Hard worker that is always improving. LSU got a great one in Mad Dog.

JC Vega looked outstanding in GA. Easily one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. When he gets fully set, he can absolutely rip the ball back to the punter. Hitting in the .6s is child’s play for JC. Consistency of snapping motion and putting on some size will be huge for him.

Christian Johnstone has an excellent frame and a very smooth snap. Ball can hit in the mid .7s and he moves well on his feet. Massive upside for Christian.

Mason Napper looked very solid in GA. He has a great body and is an athlete on the field. Starting to really come into his own and I love the direction he is headed with his excellent attitude.

William Wagner is a thick and strong Long Snapper with very good power. Locking down the consistency of his snapping motion and increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings. Love his attitude.

Zach Lassiter has the ability to be one of the best overall Long Snappers in his class. At times, he can absolutely rip th ball back to the punter. Moves well on his feet and listens well.

Codey Bennett has good accuracy and is a consistent Long Snapper. Pretty much locked into the mid .7s on his time and his body is thickening up well. Very good attitude.

Cade DeGraw showed great promise in GA. Strong Long Snapper that, when he is on, can easily be in the top ten in his class. Massive upside on Cade.

Cody Olszewski showed good snaps throughout the day in GA. Thick and strong Long Snapper that can hit in the .7s. Consistency of his snapping motion will help him as we progress.

Mark Fuchs showed me some good things in GA. Big fan of his attitude and upside. Extremely athletic Long Snapper that will be a factor on punt coverage.

Notables: Graham Leslie, Carson Knight, Jack Harrison, Connor Bullard

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Grant Reid was the best overall 2020 Long Snapper in attendance at the GA Camp. Built long and has the ability to snap in the .7s with good consistency. Really solid upside on Grant. He has quick hands and moved well on his feet.

Jake Sayer was solid all day long in GA. His hands are very quick and I loved how well he moved on his feet.

William Long was consistent with his snaps and moved well on his feet.

Notables: Dylan Hughes, Kaleb Shottenkirk, Colby Cox, Dawson Roe

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Carter Short was very solid in GA and actually made it to the finals! Ball can be very quick for his age and he has a good attitude.

Notable: Jake Putnam

RSI Scores from the GA Summer Camp (7/11/17)


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)

RSI Comparisons between CA, NC, WA, TX, AZ, NJ, IL & GA

As you know by reading this blog, Rubio Long Snapping has adjusted the testing aspect of all regional camps this spring with the “introduction” of the RSI. I put “introduction” in quotes because RSI has been around for MANY years at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS Events but has just recently been worked into the regional camps to add continuity and to track the Long Snappers and their improvement.

For the first Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA, the RSI scores are shown here, the NC RSI scores are shown here, the WA RSI scores are here, the TX RSI scores are shown here, the AZ RSI scores are shown here , the NJ scores are shown here, IL are here and GA is shown here. Now that all eight camps have concluded, here are  the comparisons and contrasts between the geographical areas and their Long Snappers. With no more spring camps left, AZ is the champion of the spring RSI!
