Recap of the AZ Spring Camp (4/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to AZ on April 9, 2017 for their Spring camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this spring instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the 2nd biggest event of the year (the largest is our January Vegas Event), VEGAS 30!

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Illinois on April 23 and Georgia on April 30th. The Georgia Camp will wrap up the Spring regional camp schedule and lead right in to Vegas 30 on May 13-14. 

This was the fifth Rubio Long Snapping regional camp that featured the RSI Testing to track a Long Snappers progress throughout the year and it was an overwhelming success. You can find out more about this new format HERE and the RSI’s from this actual camp already posted HERE

Long Snappers from AZ, TX, ID, NM, CO, CA, NE, NV all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping. 

Champion Ross Reiter with Staff Members John Finch and Matt Wigley

The overall camp champion was Ross Reiter! Ross completely dominated the entire day and became the first Rubio Long Snapper to win the speed and RSI portions of any regional camp! He broke the RSI record with an astonishing 65.22! Reiter is a machine and colleges should look at him for his snapping ability and, more importantly, his work ethic and personality. He will be an asset on and off the field for a college coach. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

The finalists, six Long Snappers with the top RSI’s, featured Ross Reiter, Wyatt Rech, A.J. Laux, Austin Riggs, Dustin Inness, and Ethan Hudak. 

Top 2017/JUCO Long Snappers

CJ Shrimpf

CJ Schrimpf is a thick snapper from AZ and snapped the ball well all day. He was easily one of the most confident snappers at the camp and could potentially compete for a starting spot at the next level. 

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Austin Riggs

Austin Riggs might have the most upside of any long snapper in the Class of 2018. He has a tremendous frame and snaps a consistent smooth ball. He isn’t far off from shooting up the rankings in his class and I think he should compete for a Top 12 invite at Vegas 30 in May.

Morgan White is a powerful snapper that will pass any eyeball test for college coaches. He nearly won the speed competition in AZ and was consistently snapping the ball in the high .6s as the day progressed. 

Derek Hahn was one of the more accurate and all around consistent snappers at the camp. He has tremendous form and the work he’s put in privately with Rubio Long Snapping instructor Gabe Miller really showed.

Hunter Burson is a smooth and consistent Long Snapper with good upside. Body is strong with room to grow and he is smart. Great kid.

Notables: J.J. Lord, Wyatt Rech

Top 2019 Long Snappers:

Ethan Hudak

Ethan Hudak stood out as the top 2019 snapper at the AZ camp. He was extremely consistent all day long and advanced to the finals of both the speed and RSI portions of the afternoon. Tremendous upside.

Notables: Dustin Inness, John Farris

Top 2020 and Beyond Long Snappers

AJ Laux

A.J. Laux already looks the part of a college snapper. He has an outstanding frame that college coaches will love and when he get’s hot he’s tough to beat. He snaps with tremendous confidence for someone his age.

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.

Top 2019 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2019 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Mike Zahara, WA
Super laid back kid. Didn’t get overly worked up about anything. Kept his cool and took instruction well. Thought it was a great sign from a kid of his age, not getting frazzled or frustrated. Really good form. Has long frame that can fill out nicely. Once he puts on some muscle and snaps hard, he will be great.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Simon Samarzich, CA
Simon had a good weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a true athlete that can be as good, or great, as he chooses to be with his Long Snapping. Once he fully dedicates himself to snapping, he could easily take the top spot and run with it. Accuracy is solid and his form is excellent for his age. Handles pressure well and could have actually won the whole thing in the desert. Like to see some more speed on the ball and that will come with consistency of snapping motion and size. Tremendous potential on Simon.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Hayden Hood, TX
Hood was excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and showed no mercy in TX. His confidence is starting to come along VERY nicely and I love it. Needs to make sure he is focus on gaining some size as that will assist him in blocking, getting down field and the overall speed of the ball. Kid is very good and just looks to get better. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and definitely at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Tyler Shaw, WI
Really liked what I saw out of Tyler at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He is a long athlete that is snapping with good power and confidence. Love to see him focus on leaning back more so he goes towards the punter and not up/forward. Falling forward will cause the ball to rise a bit and lose some accuracy. Kid has tremendous upside and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. WATCH HIM at VEGAS XXIX.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Caden Bolz, KS
Caden did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good power in his hands. Ball is quick and he has no problem hovering in the .8s at all times. By VEGAS XXIX, I want to make sure he is getting his eyes/head all the way through as this will greatly increase the overall speed of the ball AND the accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Jude Pedrozo, OH
Jude continues to impress me and didn’t let up at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and is snapping with a great deal of confidence. The upside on this kid is off the charts and he could make the TOP 12 in January if he continues to snap well. Overall accuracy and consistency is what I will be focused on seeing at VEGAS XXIX. He needs to know he can be one of the greats.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Austin Sullivan, NY
I liked what I saw out of Austin at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is very large Long Snapper for his age and has a good snapping motion. Very fluid Long Snapper. I like his form and I want him to trust it. If he was to trust his form and really let the ball fly, he will be able to get well under .90 by fall and definitely by XXIX in January. TONS OF POTENTIAL on Austin and when his legs get fully locked and timed up, he will dominate. LOVE HIS ATTITUDE.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Dominic Serapiglia, PA
Dominic did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good overall form. Ball is tight and he is showing some good accuracy. Like to see him increase the speed of his legs as they are just a tad behind his very quick hands. If he can get his timing locked down, he will be snapping under .77 by VEGAS XXIX…easily. Increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings as well. Good upside and always improving.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Quentin Skinner, GA
Skinner, AKA Mad Dog, had a solid weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He can EASILY snap a D1 ball right now when he is on. Every once in awhile, he will forget to follow through and the ball will die. If he can fix that, and I know he can, he can be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by next Vegas if not sooner. CONSISTENCY will be his biggest thing to focus on.

Top 2018 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2018 Long Snappers in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Spencer Luce, WA
Spencer showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He is a Long Snapper with nice, large frame and has the ability to snap the ball with excellent power. I REALLY need to see him snap the ball with a tight spiral. Ball comes back quick and hard BUT if there is no spiral, it will be very tricky to catch for the punters. Spiral is going to be key. He locks it down and he moves way up the charts.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Ross Reiter, AZ
Reiter did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. I purposely put him under a lot of pressure situations and he dominated all of them. Ball is beyond crisp and just gorgeous to watch. He always does an excellent job of making sure he accomplished what you want him to do. Ask Reiter to do something and just consider it done. Built strong and tough. He is very close to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

 

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado)
Jesse Hooper, UT
Hooper showed me some great things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He moves with good aggression on his feet. Like to see him increase his 40 time a bit but the kid moves with passion and rage….I love it. Love to see him focus on locking down his spiral and leading with his elbows to create more whip. With as much power as he snaps with, he should EASILY be under .80 but the lack of spiral really crushed the speed. TONS of upside and he is right on the cusp. Keep a very close eye on this kid.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Karsten Battles, TX
Battles did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a Long Snapper with good athleticism that can be a factor going downfield on punt coverage. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and already looks the part of a college athlete. Love to see him focus on really getting set and making sure he doesn’t rush the process. Tends to jump the gun a bit and that will play with his spiral and accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential and can easily be one of the best in his class. Watch him at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Ross Hinders, IA
Hinders did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a very athletic Long Snapper that moves well on his feet. Starting form is solid and he does a good job of getting his lower half fully involved in the snapping process. Like to see him lean back a bit more to make sure he doesn’t fall forward which can impact his accuracy and consistency. Getting fully set and leaning back while continuing to put on size will move him up. Quiet and deadly with his snaps.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Evan Gibson, LA
Evan did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016 and at the Underclassmen Invitational at the IMG Academy in FL. Body is looking very solid and he is built strong. Mature for his age. He has some very quick hands that really get the ball out of the gate quickly. Love to see him focus on slow motion drills to make sure he gets his lower half fully involved to gain more speed on the ball. With his frame and form, he could easily be under .8 by XXIX.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Roen McCullough, OH
Roen did well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Body is great and, when he is on, he can put a hole in the punter. He can easily be the fastest Long Snapper in the country for his age or the year above him. Making sure he is not over-gripping the ball so his spiral stays perfect and handling pressure will be the two biggest factors I check for this fall and at VEGAS XXIX in January. The ball is in Roen’s court and I know he can do it. When it clicks, he will take the top spot and it won’t be close.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Matthew Aloni, NY
Big jump in the rankings and well deserved for Aloni after watching him at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. Snaps are crisp, clean and very catchable. Form is solid and his body is able to pass an eyeball test quickly. Very good upside on Aloni. Love to see him focus on snapping with total CONFIDENCE and making sure he is whipping his arms through to create more overall speed on the ball. Like to see him under .78 by this fall and VEGAS XXIX.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Michael Vojvodich, VA
Michael did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC. He is a VERY athletic Long Snapper that can fly downfield. Absolute factor on punt coverage and can be a game changer in coverage. Form is solid and he snaps with good power. Love to see him focus on completely locking down his spiral by VEGAS XXIX and making sure he is always going back instead of up and back, at times. Massive upside and I love what I see from Michael. Keep a close eye on him….TOP 12?????

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Oscar Shadley, FL, Offer to Marshall!
Shadley did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. First off, his frame is excellent for his age…he practically looks like he could play in college right now. Upside on him at this point is off the charts. Ball is accurate, he has good speed and he handles pressure well. Locking down the spiral and making sure he is fully in control of his consistency moves him into the top spot by XXIX in January.

Recap of the PA Fall Camp (10/9/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Pennsylvania on October 9th, 2016 for their fall camp and it had the most overall talent at a camp in quite some time. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from nine different states all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

kasey-kelleher6065-1The overall camp champion was Kasey Kelleher (’17)! Kasey was on fire all day throwing back pearl after pearl. He won the speed competition with consistent snaps in the .6s and his accuracy is off the charts. Built with solid thickness and has a great mental attitude. Handles pressure well and never stops improving. He did a great job to beat Billy Taylor to win the championship and earn a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can actually watch the finals between Kasey Kelleher and Billy Taylor below from the live feed on the Rubio Long Snapping Periscope.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be WA in two weeks with CA following one week later.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

img_2656Billy Taylor not only was the accuracy champion, he was on fire all day in PA. He is a VERY smooth and calm Long Snapper that has a nice frame with room to put on some lbs in the next year. Ball is tight and the harder he snaps, the better it looks. Great improvement since the TOP 12 Camp at IMG Academy in FL. He is really coming along and finding his groove. Billy could easily dominate VEGAS XXIX.

Kyle O’Connor looked VERY smooth in PA. His hands are like absolute rockets and it is almost hard to time him. He has a really methodical set up but then BOOM! he explodes on the snap. Very solid Long Snapper that can catch a groove and dominate.

Kevin Crabtree, the recent Villanova commit, is a large Long Snapper with good power and an accurate snap. Crabtree is right on the cusp of greatness and once his butt is a bit lower, he will dominate speed. Kid is good and knocking on greatnesses door.

NOTABLES: Ryan Walker

Top 2018 Long Snappers

 

james-rosenberry6604James Rosenberry looked very sharp in PA. Ball is very tight and hovers right in the .7s consistently at all times. Accuracy is solid. Really want him to focus on his athleticism as we gear towards VEGAS XXIX and he pushes himself to get into the TOP 12 Camp.

Alex Mykut is a newcomer and showed great potential. Right now, he is very raw and pretty much all over the place BUT he is absolutely dripping with potential. Smoothing out his snapping motion can make him one of the best in his class. With the right work, he could be a top kid at VEGAS XXIX.

Zach Drevno looked pretty sharp in PA. Built well and has a lot of power. The harder he snaps and the more he trusts his form, the better he will do in the long run.

NOTABLES: Evan Jennings, Brendan Moyer, Breck Gates

Top 2019 Long Snappers

 

austin-sullivan7162Austin Sullivan is sitting on a mound of potential in a great frame. Basically looks like a college Long Snapper right now. Snapping the ball with full power and trusting his form will make his a great one in his class. Upside is off the charts.

Brandon Hurst has good potential and a nice, long frame. He moves really on his feet and has raw talent. Should be able to tie everything together to push for a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS XXIX.

Dominic Serapiglia showed waves of greatness in PA. Built thick and he has good strength. CONFIDENCE in his snapping ability will help a ton. Needs to believe in himself and not get stressed as we get past ten yards. Good upside.

Mike Wojciechowski is growing and getting more and more smooth as the camps progress. Handles pressure really well and has a glorious spiral on the ball. Size and strength will push him up the ladder. Form is great and his attitude is even better.

NOTABLES: Donte Eldridge,

Questions Regarding the College Camps

As you know, hopefully, Chris Sailer and I have posted the schedule of college camps we will be running this summer. Trust me when I tell you, we could have run another 30 of them for the coaches that asked us, but we simply don’t have time.

BIGGEST THING TO KNOW ABOUT COLLEGE CAMPS is to NOT wear yourself out by trying to hit all of them. As a Long Snapper, you should hit about three. Think of yourself like a pitcher in baseball…you have a pitch count. The more you snap, the worse you will do. One bad performance can crush you in recruiting as all coaches speak to each other. DO NOT waste your time and money by hitting too many camps. 

Here are the top five questions regarding the college camps (Alabama, Texas A&M, LSU, Oregon, Cal, Miami, Georgia, Washington, Cincinnati)….

  1. How do you get invited? You don’t. They are open to all 8th graders – JC. Some schools might be a tad different so check on their respective site. Younger Long Snappers should focus on the regional Rubio Long Snapping camps and FBU.
  2. How do I sign up for the camp(s)? You go to their football site and register. You can also call the football office.
  3. At what age do you recommend my son goes to a college camp? The time to shine will be in between his junior and senior summer (unless you are a freak, in a good way, and then I would highly recommend dominating between sophomore and junior year). However, I personally recommend going as early as possible to cut the jitters. It can be very stressful snapping in front of a high profile coach and you want to get the feeling out of the way early, when they most likely won’t be paying attention to you.
  4. Will the camp(s) be run like your personal camps? Not really. I am hired to run their camp so I am on their schedule. If they want 40 minutes of blocking, that’s what we will be doing. If a coach wants to see John Smith snap thirty in a row, that’s what they get. These camps are more showcases. PLEASE NOTE: I will NOT, under any circumstances, have my Long Snappers just snap to snap. I know that is ignorant and I won’t stand for it. DOUBLE PLEASE NOTE: if you are at a college camp that Rubio Long Snapping is not running, godspeed.
  5. Will you be ranking from the college camps? No. Per NCAA rules, I am not allowed to rank and/or evaluate from the college camps. You could be absolutely phenomenal and I would not be able to rank you or invite to the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE Camp. If you are at a college camp and someone does invite you to their “invite only” camp, they are breaking a very big rule.

If you any other questions, please feel free to comment on this blog so I can answer it and maybe clear up someone else’s confusion as well.

Recap of the IL Spring Camp (4/2)

ChicagoRubio Long Snapping traveled to IL  on April 2nd for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from MO, IN, OH, PA, WI, MI, NJ, IA, MS, CA, KY, AL & IL to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Noah Rodriguez-Trammel (CA, ’17)! Noah came all the way out from CA and truly made the trip count. He is a massive Long Snapper that can pass an eyeball test quickly and hits in The Rubio Zone all the time. Very accurate Long Snapper with good speed that handles pressure well. Winning is becoming common for Noah as he also recently won a camp in CA!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Riley John

Riley John

Riley John was the top 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He was snapping in the high to mid .7s all day and has gradually improved every single time I see him at a camp. He is going to be a very good pickup for a college. I really like his attitude and he is snapping a college ball right now.

  • Phillip Thomas looked good in IL. Thick and strong Long Snapper with great form and a very smooth ball. The more he trusts his form and just lets the ball fly, he will be better in the long run.
  • Matt Lewis is a true athlete that can fly downfield. Ball is smooth.
  • Ben Dillion was snapping some good heat in IL. Form is good and he has upside.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Joe Calcagno

Joe Calcagno

Joe Calcagno was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He is a large, strong Long Snapper with great form and lots of power. Ball can get into the high .6s and his hands are very quick. Calcagno is looking very solid and everyone should keep an eye on him at XXVIII in May.

  • Nate Durham was impressive with his accuracy and speed. Very good attitude.
  • Shiloh Mast uses his whole body very well and can catch a groove.
  • Marshall Coluzzi continues to be on the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in his class.
  • Trevor Dhabalt was throwing absolute fire in IL. His snap JUMPS out of the gate very QUICKLY.
  • Dylan Castro is flat out smooth and fun to watch snap. Great ball
  • Cole Stewart will be a completely dominant Rubio Long Snapper when he explodes at the beginning of the process instead of gliding into it. Kid is going to be excellent.
  • Matt Baldeck can be one of the best in his class if he just gets set. Ball is VERY powerful.
  • John Davis looked impressive and is definitely showing he can snap at the next level.
  • Chaz Satnan is a monster of a man and once he locks down his accuracy, he will move way up. Potential is off the charts.
  • Zach Appio is gaining confidence and building steam as we head into XXVIII in May. Great attitude.

Notables: Jackson Bond, Jack Darby, Zach Appio, Kyle Eckelberg, Will Patton

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Ross Hinders

Ross Hinders

Ross Hinders was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. His consistency is off the charts. He is like watching a pitching machine out there. Every snap is the same. Speed is good and he is getting bigger by the hour.

  • Roen McCullough is a beast of a man and can snap major heat when he is on. Consistency of speed and handling pressure will be big things I am looking for at XXVIII in May. Major upside.
  • Jack Hadley has been on the camp circuit with Rubio Long Snapping and it is paying off big time. Kid is coming along VERY nicely and wouldn’t surprise me to see him battle for a spot on the EVENT ELITE. Big man with great power. It’s all starting to come together.
  • Ronald Gaines looked very sharp in IL. Massive man with great form. Getting his whole body and power to go back will help a ton. Good attitude.
  • John Raines is VERY accurate and consistent. Locking down his spiral will be huge as we head to Vegas.

Notables: Camren Wood, Brendan Watson, Jack Halper, Matt Cluchey, Alex Rosenbaum

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Brendan Beattie

Brendan Beattie

Brendan Beattie looked great all day. Kid snaps with some serious speed on the ball and his accuracy is solid. Needs to focus on locking down the spiral as move forward. Lots and lots of potential.

  • Charlie Gambs has some good speed and consistency.
  • Patrick Szezesniak is a very athletic Long Snapper with good upside.
  • Mike Wojciechowski has excellent form and is VERY accurate. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be.

Notables: Nathan Tokar, Max Bruff, Maverick Pugh, Charles Bernth

 

  • KEY POINTS:
  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target and will always be announced when they are completed on social media.
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.

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.

Recap of the Spring Texas Camp (2/28/16)

Texas-Camp-copyRubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on February 28th for spring fall camp.

Long Snappers came out from TX, LA, OK, NM, MS, KS, IL and even NJ to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Jake Pagel (TX, ’17). Pagel was dominant from start to finish and the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. Body is thick, he is strong and he has very little, if any, wasted movement when he is snapping the ball. Won the speed competition and took the championship at the end. Great person and Long Snapper.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • geron-eatherly4115

    Geron Eatherly

    Geron Eatherly was the best 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He is BEYOND smooth and accurate. His snaps live in The Rubio Zone. Working on his body right now and it will just make him better. Oklahoma State got a great one in Eatherly.

  • Nick Wildberger came out from Blinn JC and showed me some great snaps throughout the day. He can pass the eyeball test quickly and can snap in the .6s. Getting his eyes through each time and locking down his consistency will make him completely dominant.

  • Jonathan Cain might have just been the most athletic Long Snapper in attendance. He snaps with good power and can absolutely fly down the field.
  • Conner Hemphill is flat out smooth and very consistent. Tons of upside on this very long athlete.

Notables: Trenton Givens, Josh Autaubo

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • drew-wise6289

    Drew Wise

    Drew Wise continues to impress me. He is getting very close to making it all click. That will be great for him but not so good for those ahead of him in the rankings. Snaps consistently in the .7s and can pass an eye ball test.

  • Chris Clore was very impressive all day. Continues to transform his body and is starting to snap with some good confidence.
  • Dylan Castro is an incredibly smooth Long Snapper that will never miss once he really drives his head through on each snap.
  • Caleb Cantrell has improved and showed great athleticism.
  • Noah Caldwell is a Long Snapper that can catch a groove. Looks like he grew four inches in a month. When he gets set, he does really well.
  • Jarrod Jacobson was impressive with snaps in the .7s and a nice, strong frame.
  • Andrew Speights showed me some very good potential and a great attitude.

Notables: Justin Hathoot, Justyce Hankins, Steven Taylor

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Zach Edwards

    Zach Edwards

    Zach Edwards continues to impress and show me great things in TX. Massive upside. Love his form and his potential for size. Form is outstanding. The more he trusts himself, the better he will be.

  • Dillon Hayes was VERY impress all day in TX. Quiet but dominant. Snaps a great ball and can get into the .7s. Ball is very catchable.
  • Tre Rubio (no relation) improved  A TON since the last time I saw him in TX. Body is coming along nicely and he snaps a very clean ball.

Notables: Jack Hadley, Will Gerrish

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Hayden Hood

    Hayden Hood

    Hayden Hood is a very athletic Long Snapper that looked solid. Definitely has improved and is headed in the right direction. Tons of upside and I love his attitude.

  • Ross Arroyo is starting to hit his stride and does a great job when he just relaxes and lets the ball fly out of his hands.
  • John Farris showed good consistency and a great attitude.
  • Luke Rizzo is coming along nicely and just needs to start focusing on his eyes getting through for more speed and consistency.

Notables: Landon Sleeper and Mitchell Harralson

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.

VEGAS NATIONAL EVENTS

VEGAS XXV Finals

As you know, the Vegas Events are the biggest and best Long Snapping camps in the world. They are truly a national event to see how you compete against the best in the nation, and world. The May Event, or VEGAS XXVIII, is the second largest Long Snapping camp we run (VEGAS XXVII in January was the biggest). The main difference is the weather and there are less seniors since many have already stepped onto their college campuses for their next stage of their life.

The Vegas Events are NOT an invite only camp. They are first come, first served. Long Snappers ranging from 8th grade – JC are allowed to attend.

This is the SUPER BOWL for Long Snappers. No other Long Snapping event comes close to the exposure offered by the Vegas Events. Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the most credible recruiting source for Long Snappers in the country.  The “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” is the list to be on if you are seeking national exposure. From the Vegas Events, the Rubio Long Snapping Staff will select the “TOP 12” Seniors/JC & the “TOP 12” Underclassman and “Event Elite”. Over 90% of the “TOP 12” have received full ride D1A scholarships in the past. Over 99% members of the “TOP 12” have gone on to play college football. In addition the “TOP 12” Underclassman will be invited to attend an exclusive summer camp to train and compete amongst that elite group.  The Competition Finals Round Winners (FG, Punt, and LS) will receive FREE Rubio Long Snapping Camps for 1 FULL YEAR. (Excludes transportation and Hotel). The Vegas Events offer the best exposure possible for Long Snappers. Rubio Long Snapping has personal relationships with over 100 D1A Universities and many more at other levels. This is your chance to get recognized on a national scale. Rubio Long Snapping works very closely with Scout.com, Rivals.com, Espn.com, etc. and have also been featured in Sports Illustrated, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Deadspin, etc.

FBU CAMPS

Army All-Americans 2015

Once again, Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer Kicking will be teaming up with FBU to run the specialists portion of their camps. FBU is the world’s largest football training service and has hired us to handle their Long Snapping section. It is an honor and we are proud to do it again. It is a top notch organization that benefits countless athletes across the country.

Rubio Long Snapping will be running more camps than EVER. This year I will only be at the TOP GUN CAMP.  All other locations will have two Rubio Long Snapping Senior Instructors in attendance (staff members that have been with me for well over 30 camps). They will follow the same format as myself and report directly to FBU and yours truly.

Rubio Long Snapping will be choosing the two Long Snappers that will participate in the US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL at the FBU TOP GUN CAMP in South Carolina on July 14-15. Rubio Long Snapping will also be selecting the East Bay Youth All-American for the Class of 2019 (Freshman All-American Bowl) and 2020 (8th Grade All-American Bowl) at the FBU TOP GUN CAMP in South Carolina on July 14-15.

You MUST be invited to the TOP GUN camp by performing well at one of the regional camps prior to the TOP GUN Camp. Bottom line, you will have to do well at one of the camps, that our staff  is in attendance at, to pick up an invite from myself and/or one of my senior instructors.

NFL FREE AGENT CAMP

291116_2368646975707_1857804060_o

You (the specialists) asked for it, you got it. They (NFL coaches) asked for it, they got it. As you know, Chris Sailer and myself have always run the biggest and best exposure camps for high school Long Snappers and kickers.  For the second year, we are moving into the NFL realm to give the needed exposure to our college athletes.

This one day camp will be a showcase for NFL coaches. There will be little coaching (you shouldn’t need a ton if you are at this camp) as this camp will all be about exposure. NFL coaches and personnel will be on hand to personally see the Long Snappers in action.

In order to attend this camp, you must be out of college and be eligible for the NFL draft.

  • March 17, Las Vegas, NV

You can register for the NFL Free Agent camp HERE (spots will be limited)

COLLEGE LEVEL CAMP

This camp will be ONLY for 4 year university college Long Snappers AND Long Snappers entering into a 4 year university. 1st year JC and freshman, sophomores and juniors in high school can NOT attend this camp.

This will be a very high level camp that will be run similarly to the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp. Cost of the camp will include accommodations, transportation to the fields and the instruction, and meals. This camp is built for Long Snappers looking to dominate the college camp and get ready for the NFL.

  • July 15-17, IMG Academy, FL

TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE CAMP

Top 12

This camp is open ONLY to those invited personally by Rubio. You are chosen to attend this camp by performing extremely well at either the January or May National Snapping Events in Las Vegas. Do NOT sign up for this camp unless you have been formally invited by  Rubio. Former “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” members includes countless college and NFL players, All-Americans, NFL Pro Bowlers and Super Bowl participants.

Some Long Snapping “TOP 12” Alumni: Christian Yount (Cleveland Browns), Justin Drescher (New Orleans Saints), Aaron Brewer (Denver Broncos), Jon Weeks (Houston Texans) to name a few.

The “TOP 12” is chosen after the January Event (VEGAS XXVII) and the “EVENT ELITE” is chosen after the spring Event (VEGAS XXVIII). There are obviously 12 chosen for the “TOP 12” and there is no set number for the “EVENT ELITE”. Those that deserve it and are top of their class in May, get chosen…it could be one, it could be 20.

The success rate of those we have chosen have been selected in the past that go on to play college football (most on scholarship) is over 95%.

  • July 18-20, IMG Academy, FL

Invites go out after each Vegas Event.

UNDERCLASSMEN INVITATIONAL

You will almost think of this INVITATIONAL as a baby TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp. This two day camp that Rubio Long Snapping puts on will be completely gearing towards the athletes and their parents/guardians. This camp is meant to not only get the athletes headed in the right direction in the beginning of their high school careers, but also their parents. It will provide information regarding nutrition, social media, recruiting, film, education and, of course, on field instruction. This event is just as much for the parents/guardians as it is the athletes!

College recruiting for Long Snappers is finally getting where it needs to be. Scholarships are being offered earlier and earlier each year. Early exposure is necessary these days. The Rubio Long Snapping Underclassmen “Invite Only” Event is the perfect opportunity to make a name for yourself and solidify your national ranking at the perfect time. The middle of the summer is now the time college coaches build their underclassmen lists. You want to be on that list. This camp will get you there. It is also your first opportunity to prove that you are a “TOP 12” candidate in your class. The camp is set in July for a reason, college coaches asked us to do this. They want the inside track early. Don’t be surprised to see more and more underclassmen offered during the season in the near future.

There will be formal meetings/classroom sessions on individual topics such as: Training (what level is right for the underclassmen athlete, how often, proper techniques), Nutrition and Lifting (Good habits, bad habits), Social Media (Setting up and using the proper social media outlets – this has become a must), Filming (proper angles, techniques, times, set up), Education (the importance of it, standards, year by year plan)

  • July 21-22, IMG Academy, FL

Invites go out in May.

How to Get an Unofficial Recruiting Trip

Ask.

Seriously, that is all you have to do . Call the football office (THE PLAYER CALLS) and say the following when they answer…

“Hi, my name is ___________ and I am a Rubio Long Snapper in the class of ____. (if you want to brag about your ranking, here is where you would do it). I am very interested in going to, and being recruited by,  _____(insert name of school)_____. I am looking to get put on the UNOFFICIAL RECRUIT LIST for your game vs. __________. What is the next step?”

At this point, they will most likely ask you some basic questions…(Name again, school, address, etc.). Answer them all because then you will be in their database and start getting more stuff from the school.

Please note: if this is done during the off-season, you simply tell them what day(s) you will be on campus and they will do the rest.

Couple Points….

  • The difference between an OFFICIAL RECRUITING TRIP and an UNOFFICIAL RECRUITING TRIP is that the athlete pays his way on the UNOFFICIAL RECRUITING TRIP
  • You can take AS MANY unofficial recruiting trips as you’d like. You are only allowed five official recruiting trips.
  • The bigger the game, the bigger the recruit you have to be in order to get those tickets. If you are not an absolute stud, you most likely won’t get a big time rivalry game.
  • You can start this process anytime, but usually sophomore year is good to let it rain.
  • Dress accordingly. Look clean and presentable. Rubio Long Snapping shirt or sweatshirt is always a good choice.
  • If you are too thin, wear thermals. If you are too heavy, wear something that fits well. If you are built well, wear something tight to show off what you got. Unofficial visits are a good way for a coach to see if you pass the eye ball test. Make sure you pass.
  • If parents go with the athlete, make sure the parents have a lot of taffy in their mouths so they don’t speak. Remember, the coach doesn’t want to hear from the parents. He wants to hear from the athlete.

National Signing Day

Cole Mazza Signing

Rubio Long Snapper Cole Mazza signing with Alabama

Tomorrow, high school football players around the country will be signing on the dotted line to play for their respective schools. It is a great time of the year for all involved. It is Signing Day. It is covered by major sports affiliates and it begins the process of which college will dominate tomorrow with the stellar high school athletes of today.

With all the hoopla, comes questions….let me clear some things up for everyone. These are all from questions I have received over the years. Here you go and be sure to reference back to THIS blog I wrote about the difference between a full ride, a preferred walk-on and a standard walk-on:

Is Signing Day the only day an athlete can sign with a college? 
Absolutely not. It is just the first official day for the seniors to make their commitment official. A scholarship athlete can sign anytime on or after that day. You can literally sign the day you get on campus if you are a late pick-up for a school. The whole Signing Day is just a lot of pomp and circumstance that the media has turned it into an event.

Do Preferred Walk-Ons sign on Signing Day?
No, they do not officially sign anything. However, many schools and parents like to have a simple ceremony that represents signing. A preferred walk-on, although verbally committed to a school is NOT locked into that respective school. They have the option to change their mind to another school at any point if a scholarship comes their way. Not exactly the most kosher thing to do to a coach/program but they would most likely understand. I look at it like this, an athlete not taking a scholarship would be similar to a person not taking a free car and opting to pay for the same car.

If I sign with a college on scholarship, can I adjust after?
Sure, BUT you will lose a year of eligibility. Once you sign, you are done. Don’t even think about transferring as it rarely works out and is an uphill battle to say the least. Think about it, why would a coach want an athlete that could not fit in at their first stop? A transfer athlete always brings up red flags…why is it going to work this time, why did he not get along with players and coaches at the first school, it is a homesick issue, is he a problem case, schooling? All are questions that a new coach is going to want to know about you. Bottom line, make your decision and stick with it.

How do the schools get the athletes signatures? 
Most athletes sign in the early morning and then fax them in to their new home (school).

Why have a Signing Day? 
It is the day your verbal commitment becomes official.

Can a junior that is offered a scholarship sign early?
Nope. They must wait just like the others within his graduating class. All of this waiting around gives way to all the committing and de-committing which coaches and sports writers absolutely love (dripping with sarcasm).

Is it true that scholarships have to be renewed every year by the school?
Yes. This is one of those things that not a lot of people know about but it is true. Every single year, the staff has to renew your scholarship for the next year. Therefore, if you are not producing as an athlete, student or person, your scholarship can not be renewed. It is not very common for it to happen, but I have witnessed it occur. Usually, a social issue is the final straw in saying bye bye to your education being paid for by the school.

What can go wrong with the Signing Day process?
Several things and most involve the fax machine. If the exact form is not sent in signed properly, the deal is not sealed. Many schools have lost an athlete because the Letter of Intent was faxed upside down, backwards or just not clear. Then, when they tell the student-athlete to do it again, said athlete often takes it as an omen that it wasn’t meant to be and poof! a new school is chosen. Trust me, it does happen.

All in all, Signing Day is a great thing that should be cherished by all but definitely don’t feel as though it is the end all be all. No matter when you sign, you are still going to be on full scholarship with your school paid for, and that is the most important thing.

Rubio Long Snapper Nick Umble

A couple months ago I received a call from a Long Snapper named Nick Umble. It was a standard phone call that I receive several times a month. He told me how he was recently very interested in Long Snapping and wanted to go full speed into it to get to the next level. He said he was very determined and would stop at nothing.

All things I had heard before. 

But then he told me he was born in 1978 and was just about to RETIRE from the Army as a GREEN BERET. To say that Nick has done a TON for his country is a major understatement. He said he did what he needed to do in the Army and was ready for his next challenge.

Long Snapping was his next challenge.

Umble, NickNeedless to say, Nick is VERY driven and will stop at nothing. I have worked with him several times and he is an absolute workhorse. He is a large, strong Long Snapper that will do EXACTLY what you tell him to do.

Colleges need to look at him seriously for his drive, dedication and for the fact that since he has already retired from the Army, his schooling will be free.

The film you see below is from his first Rubio Long Snapping camp in WA this fall. I have worked with him since and he is already MUCH improved.

He deserves a shot at the next level and he will get one.

Where Should a Long Snapper Hit? The Rubio Zone

The Rubio Zone is EXACTLY where the Long Snapper should hit the punter for best accuracy on a punt snap. The Rubio Zone is from the punter’s mid thigh to his lowest rib and no wider than their armpits.

Anything above the lowest rib could cause the punter to turn his hand’s over which will force him to flip them back over to punt the ball. Anything below the punter’s mid thigh will cause the punter to bend and that could throw off their timing. Anything outside of the armpits will force the punter to step one way or the other.

The Rubio Zone is the perfect location and what every Long Snapper should try to hit on every single snap. Anything outside of The Rubio Zone will negatively impact your overall snap time, as well as total get off time (snap, catch and punt).
