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.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Devin Noth

Devin Noth

Devin Noth and Ross Reiter were getting into serious battles during the speed portion of the camp. Noth’s fastest snap of the day was .63 and he was consistently around .65 for the entire camp. He has some of the fastest hands in the country.

Justin Hathoot will pass anybody’s eyeball test. He is big and athletic and throws a solid ball. He has a chance to be very solid at the next level.

Caleb Lawver recently committed to Utah State and snapped with confidence of a college snapper all day. He is very smooth and consistent and trusts his technique.

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Randen Plattner

Randen Plattner

Randen Plattner was extremely impressive all day. He dominated everyone during different stretches of the afternoon and snapped with a ton of confidence. Look out for this guy down the road.

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins had a very solid day and continued to show perfect form. He will be a force to be reckoned with as he continues to grow.

Recap of the CA Camp (3/6/16)

CA Camp2016Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 6th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from CA, AZ, NV, CO & UT to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was John Aloma! Aloma was on fire all day and Utah Ute commit was the first Long Snapper to ever win the accuracy and speed competition. His confidence is overflowing right now and his ball jumps back to the punter. He is looking ready for college now!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker was the best overall Long Snapper in attendance. His form is fantastic and his hands are rockets. ZERO wasted movement. Ball pops right out of the gate. UCLA got a great one.

  • Damon Johnson was outstanding all day. His ball seems to pick up speed on the way back to the punter. Very driven Long Snapper that does all of his speaking with his snaps. USC is lucky to get him

  • Riley Shackelford just committed to Portland State and you could see why they offered him a full ride. Kid is good, thick, strong and powerful with his snaps. Ball moves and his smooth.
  • Koby Walsh, who recently committed to UCLA as a preferred walk on, handled pressure very well and could have won the whole thing
  • Curtis Hernandez might just be the smoothest Long Snapper in the class of 2016. Definitely a sleeper of that class right now. Good upside.

Notables: Tim O’Donnel, Blake Gifford, James Kozachenko, Tanner Miller and Jacob Mimoun

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs was purely poetic in his snapping all day in CA. Ball is FAST and he has really improved on his accuracy and consistency. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be. 5 Stars by XXVIII should be his goal.

  • Devin Noth showed great athleticism and when he is on, he is REALLY on. Gaining some consistency will be huge before XXVIII.
  • Karson Thomas has great size and snaps the ball with power. Could be the sleeper of his class. Great upside.
  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel has tons of potential and is a flat out stud when snaps with full power.
  • Peter Snodgrass was impressive all day. Little tweaks will make him unstoppable. Great improvement of the last year.

Notables: Koltin Anderson, Gavin Cambell, Johnny Fuentes, Michael Lacilento, Caleb Lawver, Alex Michaelsen, Andrew Toothman

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. I timed him in the low .6s and he has an excellent spiral on his ball. Very catchable. If he can get his eyes through each time, have fun out there and get set, he will be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by XXVIII.

  • Brendan Bentley had waves of brilliance, when he is on…he is really on. Needs to focus heavily on making sure he gets both of his hands on the ball and THEN snaps.
  • Charles DeRosier was very consistent and has done a great job of improving over the years.
  • Kyle Petrucci has major upside and when he trusts his form, he will punish the punter.
  • Joseph Ramos is a massive man that will simply be as good as he wants to be. If he pushes himself, he could take the top spot in his class.

Notables: Rob Fiene, Jake Radwan, Ace Thayer, James Townsend, Jac Casasante, Gabriel Cervantes and Matt Garcia

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich had a great day in CA. He moves well on his feet and can snap the ball back in the .7s. If he pushes himself a bit more with his Long Snapping, he could be one of the best ever. Consistency will be key by XXVIII in May.

  • Nathan Weneta is right on the cusp of greatness. He is growing by the second and might be the fastest running Long Snapper in his class. Kid flies through agility drills. 

  • Ryan Aguilar has tons of upside and could be one of the greats
  • Dylan Black showed good poise and he has some solid speed on the ball.

Notables: Ryan Aguilar

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS:

I was equally impressed with three 8th grade Long Snappers in attendance: Aaron Estrada, Kameron Hawkins and AJ Laux. All are working with great form and are handling pressure well. Definitely keep an eye on these three over the next couple of years.
