Rubio Long Snapping at College Camps

Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer of Chris Sailer Kicking will NOT be running any college specialist camps during the summer of 2017.  The NCAA has passed a new rule (April 2017) that prohibits us from coaching at these camps.   The SEC, PAC-12,  BIG 12, etc. have informed us that it would be against NCAA rules to hire us, or anyone else that attempts to do what we do, as they have in the past. 

Most University specialist camps will proceed as usual, but will simply be run by the college football staffs themselves.  No outside coaches will be allowed to help out and if they do, they and the school will be under NCAA penalty.

We still encourage attendance at these camps for 2018 prospects.  However, as always we caution you as to how many you choose to attend.  We recommend 3-5 college camps total.  It is important that you are always fresh and healthy at these camps.  Never snap on back to back days, especially with the travel involved.  Remember, word of mouth will spread very quickly amongst coaches.  Three to five strong performances will go a long way.  One poor performance will spread even quicker.

Rest assured, Sailer and I will be in communication with nearly every program in the nation. College coaches will know who the top Rubio and Sailer prospects are, well before the camps.  Having said that, be sure to attend college camps that match your athletic and academic abilities. Best of luck and be sure to keep us posted on your experiences and performances.

P.S. this does mean my June is opened up a bit and I will be having private lessons. For more information, please email Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com sooner than later as many days have already been locked down.

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.

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.

Top Two JUNIORS Already Offered!

Shannon, John

John Shannon

Yup, you read that right. The #1 and #2 Rubio Long Snappers for the class of 2016 (still only juniors), John Shannon (Army & West Virginia) and Johnny Den Bleyker (UCLA), respectively, have been offered full scholarships!

Den Bleyker, Johnny

Johnny Den Bleyker

This trend of offering juniors started in 2005 when Rubio Long Snapper Christian Yount (Cleveland Browns) was offered by Boston College his junior year at the Spring Vegas Event. Now, year after year, a top junior Rubio Long Snapper has been offered a full scholarship.

So happy for these guys and for all of the Long Snappers that have been picked up or will be picked up. The Rubio Long Snapping family and it’s dominance just keeps on growing and growing and growing.

It’s real simple, if you are a Long Snapper looking to get to the next level with the best instruction and most exposure, the only answer is Rubio Long Snapping.

What a Preferred Walk-On Needs to Ask

You got a preferred walk-on spot to a major university? That is great news BUT know what you are getting into….

  • They (coaches/school) will most likely try to bring in more than one preferred walk-on. They will do this for competition. ASK IF THEY ARE BRINGING SOMEONE ELSE IN
  • They will want you to get on campus soon. ASK WHAT IS THE EARLIEST YOU CAN BECOME A MEMBER OF THE TEAM. You will want to get there asap to get a jump on the rest of the athletes that will be competing with you for the scholarship.
  • They will tell you that you can earn the scholarship. ASK EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO EARN THE SCHOLARSHIP (use the word EXACTLY so you can hold them to it)
  • They will tell you that you can be put on scholarship immediately if you start. ASK EXACTLY WHEN YOU WILL BE PUT ON SCHOLARSHIP. Will it be after the first game you start, the next quarter/semester, or the next year? (Yes, use the word EXACTLY again so you can hold them to it).

Should College Football Players Be Compensated?

My local paper, The Lewiston Tribune, asked me to write an article on my opinion about the whole unionization of college football and if college football players should be paid. Here it is…..

It’s about time!

That was my reaction when I saw the Northwestern University football team won the right to form a union. The Nation Labor Relations Board made a groundbreaking decision that will impact college athletics for years to come.

Right off the bat, I will tell you that I am biased on this topic. I played football at UCLA in the mid to late 1990s. I have been on the other size of Oz’s curtain and I know what it is like.

I have had this argument (should college athletes get paid, do they deserve more, etc.) with friends and family in the past and will have it many more times in the future.

Bottom line, YES, I do believe college football players should get paid and be able to form a union to protect themselves. If they don’t, who will?

The NCAA? Not too sure I would jump on their shoulders and cheer too loud for them. They say it isn’t about the money but, in reality, it’s all about the money. On every angle you look at this topic, it’s all about the money.

If it is not about the all-mighty dollar, why do universities sell jerseys with their team’s top players’ numbers on them? Why not just wipe out that process altogether and sell No. 00 jerseys? Answer: No one would wear that number because it’s not related to a college athlete.

The colleges and universities know they aren’t selling jerseys; they are selling their top QB, RB or DL. It’s obvious. It’s too obvious.

It’s also obvious the top athletes who are making the colleges millions don’t see one dime of the money. Nothing.

How many No. 2 football jerseys do you think Texas A&M sold prior to Johnny Manziel’s last two highlighteel seasons? I would bet none.

Now, how much money do you think they estimate Manziel has brought in to the university in less than two years?

Ready for the answer … $37 million! All money that the university would have never seen had it not been for their star athlete playing the game of football.

And that money will keep on coming into the college while he plays in the NFL because he attracted fans and fans spend money. The more fans, the more they will spend and the more the school will spend to make the school look better (FYI: Texas A&M is about to finish adding 20,000 more seats to its stadium) and attract more boosters and students.

Go ahead and check to see schools’ application numbers after they do well in football. They always rise because the school gets more television exposure and students want to go to a wellecognized school with a winning team.

But the argument goes, a kid in college shouldn’t get that money since they are usually not very mature and would blow it right away. Fine, put it away and give it to them when they are off to the pros or graduate (that will really pick up graduation rates). I am all for that and think it could easily work.

One argument is that football players get paid by having their education covered and even a scholarship check to boot. There are a lot of holes in this argument.

Yes, just like a student on academic scholarship, a football player’s schooling is paid for. That is where the correlation ends.

You see, a student on academic scholarship has to be a top-tier student. That is all. Don’t get in trouble, keep your grades up and represent the university well and you’re good. Plus, they have the ability to get a job when they are not in class.

A football player on scholarship has to do all of those things, without having time to get a job AND has to play football. Big deal you say? It’s just a game you say?

Think about it like this, an average college football player’s schedule looks something like this during season …

  • Work out at 6 a.m.
  • Class from 8 a.m. to noon
  • Physical therapy from 1 to 2 p.m.
  • Meetings from 2 to 3 p.m.
  • Practice from 3 to 6 p.m.
  • Training table (mandatory dinner with the team) from 7 to 8 p.m.
  • Tutoring from 8 to 10 p.m.
  • Do it all again the next day.

A college football player simply has no time for anything else. They don’t have time for a job. No job means no money.

But they get scholarship checks from the university, you say? That check is nothing. It is so bad that even the NCAA admits that a “full scholarship” does not cover the basic necessities for a college athlete. My check at UCLA back in the late ’90s was approximately $800 per month. My rent alone was $450. After bills and food, there was NEVER any money left. Trust me, I was not buying anything crazy or anything at all. I wasn’t going to Disneyland every day, or ever. Without help from a parent, a football player on scholarship doesn’t survive.

With inflation and rent price increases, this check has increased to around $1,300 now. Ask any player living in L.A., and this barely covers rent and a few bills and meals.

In doing research for this piece, I spoke with several current college athletes and every single one said what they get is not even close to enough. They often will go without eating meals in order to save money to make sure the bills are paid. (fyi: since this article was written, the NCAA has adjusted to allow unlimited meals to college athletes less than two weeks after Connecticut guard and Final Four Most Outstanding Player Shabazz Napier made headlines by saying he often goes to bed starving)

One must wonder if the heads of the universities athletic departments or the NCAA are having to skip breakfast in order to make sure they have gas in their car to get to job/practice?

My bet is no.

Can you see how much time the athlete must dedicate to football? This is why they are so adamant about getting to be a union. So they can have some rights. So they can eventually get some compensation for being on the field and getting beat up all year long and risk life-altering injuries.

Anyone can do it? Not true. Only a certain few have the ability to do it.

To be a college athlete, to maintain the highest standards on the field and in the classroom takes a special person and that special person should be fairly compensated and protected.

Rubio Long Snapper Chris Longo Earns Scholarship to UCLA

Long time Rubio Long Snapper and TOP 12er Chris Longo has been put on scholarship at UCLA!

Longo started all games last season and performed well enough to earn himself a full scholarship. Longo has been with Rubio Long Snapping since 2009 and has gradually gotten better over time. He is built very long and can rip the ball back to the punter. He came off a knee injury two seasons ago and battled to win the starting job.

Congratulations to Chris Longo and his family!

Rubio Long Snapper Nolan Frese Earns Scholarship for the Houston Cougars!

Long time Rubio Long Snapper and TOP 12er Nolan Frese has recently been put on scholarship at the University of Houston!

I recently wrote about Nolan for his academic success and now I am proud to write about him for his athletic success. Nolan is work horse that has grown with his Long Snapping and frame a great deal since his days at Keller HS in Texas. He is as good a person as he is a Long Snapper and I am very proud of him.

Congratulations once again to Nolan Frese and the entire Frese family!

Rubio Long Snapper Jeff Goyette Earns Honor at Bucknell!

Rubio Long Snapper Jeff Goyette of Bucknell was selected to be a Team Captain for the 2013 season!

Anyone being a team captain is great but, and I hate to say it, being a Long Snapper and being honored in that capacity is fantastic!

Goyette is a also a two time Special Teams MVP & Academic Honor Roll. Someone might say he is doing a phenomenal job in college….that someone is me!

Congratulations to Jeff Goyette!

Rubio Long Snapper Kyle Renning (AZ, ’13) Commits to Northern Arizona!

Long time Rubio Long Snapper Kyle Renning has committed as a preferred walk-on to Northern Arizona!

This is a great moment for Kyle and his family as he will join his brother, Hayden (a Rubio Long Snapper who was Big Sky Conference All-Academic Team), at Northern Arizona. Also, both parents are alums of the school! To say they have  a history with the school might be just a tad of an understatement.

Kyle has come a long way with his snapping. He has transformed his body, his confidence and his form to truly be ready for the next level.

I am very proud of him. Congratulations to Kyle Renning!

Rubio Long Snapper Michael Morovick Earns Scholarship!

Long time Rubio Long Snapper Michael Morovick has been put on full scholarship at Oregon St.!

Michael is the second Morovick to come through the Rubio Long Snapping ranks to earn a full scholarship. His older brother, Danny, was the Long Snapper for the Washington Huskies from 2006-2009.

Morovick, a junior at Oregon St., is known for being quite possibly the most athletic Long Snapper in the Pac 12.

Congratulations once again to Michael Morovick!

Who’s next?
