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.

Rubio Long Snapping has become…

Rubio Long Snapping has grown immensely over the past 13 years….

Rubio Long Snapping has gone from having barely double digit Long Snappers at a Vegas Event to double digits plus 300 at the same Vegas Event.

Rubio Long Snapping has gone from 1 lesson per every other month to continuous lessons all over the country, Virtual Lessons and lessons with NFL Long Snappers (that have been with Rubio Long Snapping since the beginning)

Rubio Long Snapping has gone from a couple Long Snappers going to college, to over 350 in the past three years alone.

Rubio Long Snapping has gone from not being able to fill the TOP 12 Camp, to having so much talent at one, a simple video of kids with offers could take over a minute.

Rubio Long Snapping method of training and exposure has been so productive that it has literally made history in programs.

Rubio Long Snapping has created testing and rankings that are beyond fair to showcase a Long Snapper’s true talent level. If a Long Snapper can show up and dominate, they are at the top. If they don’t, they aren’t. Rankings are based on snapping and talent. Come to one camp or come to fifty, it doesn’t impact your rankings unless you prove yourself…you either have it, get it and show it or you don’t.

Rubio Long Snapping is proven, it’s impact is overwhelming and it’s actual results are simply incredible.

Rubio Long Snapping is not a place for research or experiments, where measurement may be performed with possible results.

Rubio Long Snapping is a producer. It produces polished, glorious, exceptional final products.

Rubio Long Snapping produces polished Long Snappers that produce on and off the field.

Rubio Long Snapping produces a family atmosphere where people from all over the country compete with one another but still, in the end, want the best for each other’s children.

Rubio Long Snapping produces countless, and I mean countless, testimonials from parents, coaches and Long Snappers.

There is no trial and error with possible results from Rubio Long Snapping. There is only production.

Rubio Long Snapping has become a FACTORY that simply produces greatness and results.

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…

The RSI (Rubio Standard Index)

Starting this spring, all 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 now 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 80 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). I believe the highest I have ever encountered a 60.61 by Kasey Kelleher at VEGAS XXIX. 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) If you have ever been to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Event, you know that one of the main parts of competition day is when each Long Snapper gets tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.

So, You Didn’t Make the TOP 12, Now What?

10985429_799770960099036_576669887791321499_nFor the past couple weeks, you have been watching the TOP 12 Camp Invited Long Snappers get chosen one by one. Daily, you stared at your Twitter feed, Instagram or Facebook waiting for the inevitable clues to be dropped. Each day, a couple people were ecstatic while countless others felt the opposite emotions. A couple days ago, the final members of the EVENT ELITE were announced and a balloon was popped for many 2018 and 2019 Long Snappers. Now what?

Couple ways to look at it….

You can be upset with me for not selecting you. You can be upset with yourself for not performing when it counted. You can even find a way to blame others, but, it is ultimately on you. The only thing you can control is how hard and smart you work. Everyone in Vegas is competing for the same spots. Don’t let anybody outwork you and you will see different results.

You need to use this as motivation to make sure you perform better. This is all up to you. The choice is yours.

If you are a Long Snapper that strives to be the best, you want to be at that TOP 12  camp during the summer. Any single athlete that has been there (scholarship Long Snappers, All-Americans, NFL players) will tell you it is, by far, the best camp they have ever been to in their life. What you need to do is get back on the horse. Work smarter and harder.

Many great Long Snappers did NOT make it simply because in Vegas they didn’t feel they could. They did NOT have confidence. They were HOPING they would snap well instead of KNOWING they would snap well. Sound familiar?

Just because you didn’t make the TOP 12 does NOT mean you are a bad Long Snapper at all and that you should just stop. It means that you need to work harder and smarter at VEGAS 30 to be selected to the next barch of TOP 12 Campers to be invited. Remember, I will be choosing twenty more there and then those forth will be narrow down at the camp to see who really is THE TOP 12 LONG SNAPPERS.

You need to knock my socks off. THE RANKINGS CAN BE ADJUSTED ANYTIME I SEE YOU LIVE. You need to show everyone this spring as I pass through the country that you are the best. Dominate. Know you can do it AND do it!

The best of the best ALWAYS step up.

Are you one of them? Time to decide. Prove to me, and the rest of the world, that you belong.

Or don’t.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS…..

NFL Training

In lieu of a Rubio Long Snapping NFL camp this year, I will be personally offering private lessons in Northern Idaho. Spots are limited and I will not be taking a mass group.

After speaking with college and NFL coaches, scouts and agents, I was advised to run specific lessons, this year, with each NFL ready Long Snapper to offer more one on one interaction to give back to the scouts and agents. Last year alone, Rubio Long Snapping had ELEVEN Long Snapper earn tryouts based on Rubio Long Snapping film and my word.

For this year, Rubio Long Snapping will not be running a NFL Free Agent camp to focus solely on the private lessons with NFL Free Agents

One of the things the coaches, scouts and agents liked the most is that there was no bias. If you can snap and move at the next level, I tell them that. If you can’t snap and move at the next level, I tell them that as well. I don’t care if I have seen you snap at my camps or not. This is all about a bottom line with the NFL. You either are the full package or you are not.

With eleven guys getting tryouts, it is quite clear that my word is good and definitely respected.

The lessons will offer the following….

  • Private instruction with me in an indoor location
  • Film to review as well film to send out to agents and teams with my stamp of approval on it.
  • Game plan to get each Long Snapper ready for their pro day.
  • Detailed planning on meetings with agents and coaches.

I will get you ready, it is up to you what you do when you get there!

If interested, email Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com as are limited and once they are gone, they are gone.

The Journey of Rubio Long Snapper Damon Johnson

I wanted to tell you a quick story, that very few of you actually know about, regarding Rubio Long Snapper Damon Johnson.

Damon, a 2016 Five Star Rubio Long Snapper from CA, was offered a full scholarship to West Virginia back in June heading into his senior year. He took his trip there during the fall, fell in love with it and committed to be their next Long Snapper in October of his senior year.

On the Friday of VEGAS XXVII in January (several months after his commitment), Damon was packing the car for the weekend and was contacted by a Graduate Assistant from West Virginia.The G.A. informed Damon that West Virginia was not going to honor their commitment to Damon and there would be no scholarship for him as they were going to give it to another position. (I have been working with Long Snappers for well over a decade and this is the first time I have ever seen something like this happen. First time.) 

Damon was beyond dumbfounded and completely thrown for a loop. Down in the dumps would be the biggest understatement in the history of mankind. This is a kid, who is very quiet and doesn’t show much emotion, having to deal with a major ordeal before one of the biggest weekends of his life. Damon who was so loyal to West Virginia that he told many schools (North Carolina, Memphis, Portland State and BYU) that he was done with his recruiting to get ready for the Mountaineers.

Imagine heading to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas competition with a full scholarship under your belt, knowing you could breathe a little easier and having it taken from you (out of your control) at the very last second. 99.9% of the Long Snappers and their families would have not shown up or been a visual mess. With the Johnson family, you would never be able to tell anything was even wrong. I am still amazed at how well they handled it all.

I told him and his family to simply relax and that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I knew we could be headed for an uphill battle, but even I didn’t realize just how much of a fight it would entail.

After a call, USC immediately jumped on the Damon bandwagon and wanted him asap. A top tier Rubio Long Snapper is not always around after signing day and one had just appeared. Damon began communication with the Trojans but soon found out his English score on the SAT was simply too low to be a preferred walk-on at USC. This is where Damon goes from a boy, to a man.

Damon was told he would have to go to a JC, maintain a 3.5 GPA, take eight classes from summer through fall, and if he received a C or lower, he would disqualify himself. The eight classes had to be core classes (fluff elective classes would NOT be accepted).

This is a BIG reach for Damon. He is (was) not, let’s say, a very motivated and/or highly academic student….in the past. School was something Damon simply tolerated in order to play football and hang out with his friends. His entire mindset would have to change.

He stuck his head in the books, camped out in the library and hired any tutors he could find to help him TRY to achieve his goal of getting to USC. In the summer, he took English, History and Art History. In the fall, he took English, Biology with a lab, Sociology, History and Criminal Justice. He studied and studied and studied and studied and studied….well, you get my point.

About one week ago, Damon received his final grades from Citrus Junior College and found he had done it! USC already knew and congratulated him on his accomplishment. He would be able to get into USC and play football for them. To put even more icing on the cake, the Trojans presented Damon with a four year college scholarship to USC instead of a preferred walk-on!

Damon accepted, signed right away and will be enrolling at USC on January 4th.

I am EXTREMELY proud of Damon and his family. I really don’t think Damon, or his family, even believed he could do it. There were many calls, texts, emails between us all. Damon, and his family, have traveled an incredible emotional journey over the past year. His story is one that I will tell countless times as I am sure he and his family will as well.

Remember, recruiting is never easy and no two stories are the same. Patience is a key virtue throughout and, never forget, everything happens for a reason.

Congratulations once again to Rubio Long Snapper Damon Johnson! YOU DID IT….on the field and, more importantly, off the field as well.

2nd Annual Rubio Long Snapper George Steward Award

Steward, GeorgeTo honor Rubio Long Snapper George Steward, let’s do this again!

If you have been following me on social media the past year, you know that the Rubio Long Snapping family suffered a terrible loss with the tragic death of Rubio Long Snapper George Steward one year ago today.

George was simply waiting at an intersection, with his long time girlfriend, when an out of control car crushed his car and ended his, and his girlfriend’s lives. They were 18 years old.

If you knew George, even for a second, you knew he was always smiling and having a good time. His smile was infectious. He was a big man with a big heart and an even bigger smile.

George was the perfect reflection of a Rubio Long Snapper.

I have spoken to his mom several times over the past couple of years. She is obviously extremely distraught over what has occurred but wants George to live on with Rubio Long Snapping. She told me he was extremely proud to be a Rubio Long Snapper (look at his graduation announcement) and was always in a Rubio shirt.

IMG_2474

George’s mom, Adrienne De La Fuente, wants to create a VEGAS scholarship in George’s name. She wants to sponsor a deserving Long Snapper that wants to go to VEGAS but possibly doesn’t have the means. She asked me to create the criteria, so here we go….

WHO: Any Long Snapper from 7th grade to 2nd year of JC

WHAT: This award will go simply to a happy Long Snapper. In honor of George, who was ALWAYS smiling and happy, this award will go to someone on that same page. To enter, you need to include at least three pictures of you with a genuine smile. Three more with you around others smiling and two letters of recommendation (yup, you guessed it, just stating you are happy person) from a family member and someone at your school.

WHEN: All entries must be in my hand by November 14th. Now, to make things easier this year, they can be mailed OR scanned and emailed to me at Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com

George without copy copy

UPDATE!!!!

jaden-sanchez8209And the winner, chosen by George’s mother Adrienne, is going to be Rubio Long Snapper Jaden Sanchez!

Here is just one testimonial about Jaden and his smile…

“Jaden Sanchez, a freshman at Bakersfield High School and 14 years old, sounds a lot like George… always smiling.  Jaden’s smile is infectious and makes everyone around him happier.  Jaden has faced many obstacles in his life but nothing keeps him from having that huge smile on his face.  Finding out about 4 years ago that he was diagnosed with alopecia and loosing every hair on his body was hard for him but he still found a way to stay positive and always had/has a smile on his face.  We would be at the dermatologist’s office with him and even when going thorough treatments and getting 16 shots in his head, I remember him having a smile on his face.  Jaden is a great young man with a great attitude on life… it shows in that awesome smile!”

All of my contests are difficult to judge, but this was one was probably the most tricky as everyone did a great job in expressing themselves and what they do to give back. I saw videos on topics ranging from….

  • Voluntarily mowing a cemetery lawn that takes THREE days…
  • Working with the Special Olympics
  • Volunteering for a Pediatric Cancer Foundation
  • Care packages of food for the needy
  • Organizing kid’s games at the local church
  • Heart screenings for teens
  • Serving meals to the needy
  • Working on a food drive for ELEVEN years
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Traveling to Costa Rica to help the poor
  • A project to keep kid’s in school
  • The Ronald McDonald House
  • It’s About the Warrior Foundation to help soldiers

Honestly, any one of the entries could have won but there are two that really stood out and here they are in alphabetical order….

Needless to say, I was VERY impressed with Nick Tibbetts and Jacob Zuhr for acting as leaders in their community. They not only volunteer, they started a volunteering organization to get others involved.

So, in the spirit of GIVING BACK, I am going to crown them BOTH the winners of the contest and they are both going to be given a FREE admission to VEGAS XXIX!

Congratulations once again to Tibbetts and Zuhr for going above and beyond in helping others. These two, and all of the others, are great examples of what the Rubio Long Snapping family is all about!

A Guide For Rubio Long Snapping Parents on Game Day

As season starts, parents can tend to be filled with tons of emotions: joy, excitement, fear, nervousness, etc. All are normal and should be felt if your son is going to play on Friday, Saturday or even Sunday. Here are a couple of things to remember….

  1. You aren’t the first parent to go through this and you won’t be the last. Just like I tell my Long Snappers, if someone else has done it, so can you.
  2. Know that your son is well prepared. Odds are, if you are reading this, your son has been to a Rubio Long Snapping camp in the past couple months and got great instruction. Not only did he, but you did so as well. Remember when I brought you on the field? I don’t do that just because I want to spray with some people closer to my age. I do it so you can learn and teach your son when I am not around….and you have been doing that, right:)
  3. Review the mental aspect with your son before the game. Remind him, and yourself, that he, and you, are ready for this and he, and you, will dominate the moment.
  4. Make sure you hire someone else to film the game (one of your son’s friends or something….”Hey Johnny, here’s ten bucks, film the whole game, do it well, keep the camera on the Long Snapper and keep quiet”) so you can focus on the whole experience and not be stuck behind a camera seeing the game through a three inch screen.
  5. Prepare for the game with your son. After he snaps a great ball, you will want to give him signals to show him how great he did…thumbs up, big outstretched arms emulating a Rubio hug, blow him a kiss (get his lady friends involved).

Breathe. Have fun. Believe in your son. Have confidence in him. Trust me, it will overflow into him.

Enjoy every single moment you have with your children. This is an incredible time in your life and you need to embrace every single second of it.

VEGAS XXIX CONTEST!

As you know, for each VEGAS Event, Rubio Long Snapping will always have a contest to earn a FREE admission to VEGAS XXIX. This year will be a little different! Here we go:

WHO: Any Long Snapper from 7th grade to second year of Junior College that would like to attend VEGAS XXIX for free.

WHATRubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXIX Gives Back!

Over the years we have seen some excellent examples of Rubio Long Snappers giving back to their community.  I want to see which Rubio Long Snappers are out there already volunteering their time, being active leaders in their community and, if you are not, why aren’t you and it is now time to get off your butts to do so!

For this contest, I would like to see which Long Snappers are involved in their local charities or actively volunteer across the world. You will need to submit a video entry, no longer than two minutes in length. Your video will have to be uploaded to YouTube with the title: Your Name, Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXIX Gives Back, 2016.

Your video entry will have to clearly state who you are, where you are, what charity or volunteer organization you are involved in, and why you are passionate about volunteering with that specific group. 

The overall focus of the video should be why giving back is important to you.  It doesn’t matter who or what you support or how you give back, just show us why and how you do!  If you pick up trash off the beach on weekends, awesome, tell us why that is important to you.  Do you hand out meals or blankets to those in need, tell us why it is you started volunteering in that specific way.  This is not a competition to see who can give back the “best”.  We just want to encourage the ENTIRE Rubio Long Snapping family to get out and volunteer.  Don’t stress or put too much thought into it and do not feel bad if you’ve been slacking, simply get up and go!

This video does NOT need to be done with high tech cameras or anything like that as simply creating an edited iMovie on your iPhone would be more than sufficient to get your point across to the Rubio Long Snapping family.

WHEN: All entries must be submitted to me by email (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping) by October 1st at noon pst.

WHERE: All across the world!

WHY: To motivate and energize the Rubio Long Snapping family to get out and help their community and those around them.  The most inspiring video entry will earn a free admission to VEGAS XXIX.

Remember, Long Snapping can take you far in life, but giving back to your community will take you even farther!

Please Note: If you win the contest and are already registered for VEGAS XXIX, your free admission will be pushed to VEGAS XXX in May!

It Wasn’t Supposed to be This Difficult

IMG_0550Headed to college…..

Everything is different now. People are looking at you like you are odd. You are at a whole new place in your life. Family is calling you. Old friends have wished you well. Everything is changing.

You knew it was coming and you worked for countless years to get to this point. You definitely had not done it all on your own. The list of people that have assisted you in getting to this point is gigantic and seems to keep growing.
 
You are amazed with yourself that you actually did it. You planned and planned and planned for this moment, yet, you still are overwhelmed that it finally came to fruition.

You don’t think you will be able to get through it. There’s no way you can. You continuously remind yourself that you are not the first person to do this, and definitely will not be the last.

The days get longer and longer. You look at old photos on your phone. You text. You call. You sob. You check Facebook. Sometimes you cry when people are looking and, a lot of times, when they aren’t. You never thought it would be this rough. This IS what YOU wanted, right?
 
You have spoken to others that have gone through what you are struggling with. You insist there’s no way they could have had it this rough. Times are different. Things are different. This is what you wanted, right? This is for the best, right? This is the next step in life, isn’t it?
 
Yes.

Yes it is. This is the plan. This is the way it needs to be. This is what has to happen in life in order to advance.

Who would have thought being a parent and having your child go to college would be so tough:)

Rubio Long Snapping YouTube Page!

The Rubio Long Snapping YouTube page has hit 1,000,000 views!!!

This is simply an incredible accomplishment as this account is, and it pains me to say it like this, only for Long Snappers.

To me, what is the most impressive thing about hitting the 1,000,000 mark in well less than ten years is that they are all genuine views and not done from a bot.

A bot is a an app companies pay for to increase their views….basically, a formula is created and it keeps “watching” the videos. It is actually funny (and sad) to watch other “bot” videos get massive amount of views in one day when you know for a fact no one is watching them and it is not authentic by being smoke and mirrors….bottom line, keep an eye out for fake exposure.

Preparing for VEGAS XXVIII

VEGAS XXVIII (the 2nd largest Long Snapping event in the world, our January event is the 1st) is taking place on May 21-22, 2016 and there are a couple key things to know as we head into that weekend.

  1. CONFIRMATION EMAILS with basic details of the weekend will be sent out on Monday, May 16th. Be on the lookout and if you are registered, but don’t get one, let us know ASAP!
  2. The VEGAS XXVIII PACKET (this will have ALL of the weekends information in GREAT detail) will be emailed to you as a PDF on Thursday, May 19th. This will be your baby for the whole weekend. We decided it was best to let you have them as a file in your email, instead of printed out for several reasons (no need to make copies, you can’t lose this one, it will be on your phones which are always with you). We will NOT be printing any packets out so if you do want it printed out, you will need to do that yourself.

What Do You Get at a Rubio Long Snapping Camp?

INSTRUCTION – There is simply no doubt that you will receive the best instruction in the country at a Rubio Long Snapping camp. It is unprecedented and known by college and NFL coaches throughout the country. When you sign up for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, you get perfection. I am there, my senior staff is there, on time and we don’t leave early.

EXPOSURE – Every camp that Rubio Long Snapping run offers the most exposure possible for Long Snappers. I bombard several avenues to make sure my Long Snappers are visible to all. The Rubio Long Snapping YouTube Channel has over 970,000 views (this is all just for Long Snapper….NO kickers are on the page). RubiosBlog.com has been viewed well over 1,000,000 times. @TheChrisRubio on Twitter has over 5,750 followers (many of which are coaches) and the Rubio Long Snapping Facebook Page has over 5,600 followers (many of which are coaches) and stories in publications all over the world make Rubio Long Snapping the one stop shop for the most exposure in the country.

PLAYER PROFILE PAGE – As soon as you perform in a camp in the fall (or after) of your freshman year, you get a PLAYER PROFILE PAGE….for free! This player profile page is controlled by me and it can have any information you wanted added to it at anytime. You can use it for your recruiting purposes throughout high school.

RANKINGS – As soon as you perform in a camp in the fall (or after) of your freshman year, you get a ranking. I don’t rank off a target. I don’t rank off a formula. That would be ignorant. I rank off of THIS blog that describes what makes a Long Snapper great. That ranking can be adjusted anytime I see you live. Coaches look to these rankings religiously in their recruiting of Long Snappers.

YOUTUBE VIDEO – At every single Rubio Long Snapping camp you attend, you will be filmed for a YouTube video. Those videos will be placed on your free player profile page. You can use the video at your own discretion. It is yours and there is no extra charge for this service.

FILM SESSION – At Rubio Long Snapping camps, I will go in with you to a classroom and review the morning sessions. Long Snappers attend but I really want the parents/guardians to attend as well since this is when a majority of the learning will take place.

RECRUITING SEMINAR – At Rubio Long Snapping camp, Chris Sailer and I run an hour long recruiting seminar where we hit on some key topics and always open it up to a Q&A session for the specialists and parents. You will not leave without all your questions answered.

PROVEN SUCCESS – Dont’ believe me? See what others have to say HERE

RUBIO LONG SNAPPING SHIRT – You know, to wear at prom and such:)

Trust me when I tell you, I could keep this list going and going and going. Things like Friendship, Confidence, Humor are just some immediate things that pop into my head….see you soon! Remember, Not only on the field, but off. I am not your coach. I am your Rubio and I will be there for you.
