Recap of the College Camp

Overall Champion Kyle Varnell of UAB

Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual college camp for Long Snappers either currently in a four year university or those headed to one this fall. Long Snappers from all over the map came to Tampa, FL. to train with and against the best in the world of college football.

The winner of the overall competition was Kyle Varnell of the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Kyle is a long athlete that moves very well on his feet. His ball is very smooth and catchable with excellent speed. Upside on Kyle is off the charts. He has a tremendous personality and is definitely the type of person that will be successful in whatever he chooses to do in life.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire Saturday and Sunday in Tampa. His form is darn near perfect and he is snapping the ball with a lot of power and agression. The thicker and stronger he gets, the better his overall power will be as he moves towards the NFL.

Steven Nixon of Mercer was excellent all weekend. He is strong, built well, moves like an athlete and is extremely consistent with his snapping. Not uncommon for Nixon to snap the ball in the .6s and right on the punter’s hip. Great overall personality and a Long Snapper the next generation could look up to.

Damon Johnson of USC (Southern Cal) was throwing absolute heat all weekend. Ball never even came close to .75 or higher. Damon is a very athletic Long Snapper that is driven to be the best in the country. Very powerful ball in short or long snaps.

Anthony Ratliff of East Carolin University was solid from start to finish with very accurate and consistent snaps to the punters and holders. Physically fit Long Snapper with great form and a smooth snap.

Logan Klusman of the Kansas Jayhawks was very sharp in Tampa. Body is maturing and he is snapping a very smooth and accurate ball. Ball can jump at the punter. The quicker his hands get at the start, the better he will be in the long run.

Jonathan Scandrett of Florida International University was throwing some very fast snaps back on both days. Listens well and has good upside. Ball could sting a punter if they aren’t paying attention. Built very athletically and once he extends a bit more, his ball will be more accurate and even quicker.

Peter Snodgrass of Northwestern looked extremely solid all weekend. Just heading into college and already looks like he has been snapping at the college level for years. Great upside and Snodgrass is definitely one to watch over the next couple of years.

Ian Lauvai of Sacramento State had a great camp. Thick and strong Long Snapper that was snapping pearls non-stop to the punters. Big fan of his demeanor and how calm he is under pressure.

Elias McMurry of Appalachian State is powerful and has done a great job transforming his body into that of a college athlete. When he gets his eyes through, he is as good as anyone in the country.

Grant Gustafson of Texas A&M probably had the most upside of any Long Snapper in attendance. He also can play tight end and he definitely looks the part. NFL frame right now and he can snap an NFL ball when he just lets it go.

Notables: Carson Tebbetts of StonyBrook, Chris Clore of the Colorado School of Mines, Wyman Baxley of South Carolina, Mike Curry of Penn State, Jackson Quiggle of NC State, Steven Wethli of Youngstown State, Aaron Blaylock of the Citadel and Kanyon Combs

Long Snappers came out from FL, MI, IL, AL, WI, TN, NC, KY, IN, MS & GA to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Quentin Skinner (GA, ’19)! Skinner (or Mad Dog as he is known) was very powerful all day with snaps in the .6s and great form. Kid is way beyond his years and the first freshman ever to win a Rubio Long Snapping camp. He is beyond great and actually ready for college right now.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Anthony Ratliff

Anthony Ratliff

Anthony Ratliff was the best senior in attendance. His ball was on fire and he was snapping with tons of confidence. ECU definitely got a good one in Ratliff.

  • Riley John showed good power and accuracy. Good upside and I like the direction he is headed.

Notables: Russ Hiett and Riley John

Recap Article of GA Fall Camp (10/11)

Georgia PosterRubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on October 11th for their fall camp. The camp had perfect weather and the talent was absurd.

Long Snappers came out from GA, TN, KY, AL FL, SC, TX, MS & OH to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp, and new 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper, was Anthony Ratliff (GA, ’16)! Ratliff, who has recently been offered a preferred walk-on to Penn St., was on fire all day. He was snapping with incredible confidence and was dominant in the speed competition. Kid was handling pressure as well as anyone around. He is ready for college now!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Jake Munoz

    Jake Munoz

    Scott Meyer was outstanding all day in GA. The more he just lets the ball go, the better he is. Might be the smoothest Long Snappers in the country.

  • Jake Munoz continues to have some of the quickest hands I ever worked with at Rubio Long Snapping. Once he locks down his consistency, it is all over for the rest of his class.
  • Sean Somers is one of the toughest and hardest working Long Snappers in the country and it showed in GA. Kid has really improved.
  • Colton Piatt was snapping with solid confidence and showed very good accuracy.

Notables: Dan Patterson, Koby Pyrz, Wyman Baxley, Connor Caffrey and Jacob Holman

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Matthew Smith

    Matthew Smith

    Jacob Potter is as strong as they come and has done a good job of being looser. Time for him to dominate a camp from start to finish.

  • Matthew Smith might have the most potential of anyone in his class. Once it clicks, he will crush the rest of the 2017 kids.
  • Raymond Freeman is built very long and was just dripping with potential. Kid can throw heat and just needs to make sure it gets under control.
  • Thomas Bowling was smooth, accurate and right on target all day.
  • Callen Davidson has an excellent attitude and ball. Kid is ALWAYS moving up the charts.

Notables: Pierce Brennan, Willis Brown, Joe Christian, Jack Colwell, Brandon Whitfield, Brooks Tryon, Colin Scott, Jacob Rubenstein, Chandler Moody, Ryan McNeil, Gabe Hantz

    James Rosenberry

    Jarrett Key was VERY impressive all day in GA. He is built well, always smiling and throws good height. Keep a close eye on him at VEGAS XXVII.

  • James Rosenberry is smooth as they come and always moving in the right direction. Uses his whole body very well.
  • John Raines showed me great things all day in GA.
  • Parker Lefton is big, strong and has great form. Like a machine when he is snapping the ball.

Notables: Trey Corley, Camren Wood, Jacob Hall

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Luke Smith

    Luke Smith

    Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner left absolutely no doubt he is the best Long Snapper for the class of 2019 in the country. He already has the ability to snap in the .5s and already has a full scholarship offer. Form is impeccable and he has the strength of a college athlete. Consistency and crushing his opponents are the next step.

  • Luke Smith looks like a high school senior and can snap like one as well. Huge upside for this kid from GA.
  • JC Vega is a very smooth Long Snapper with wonderful form and he is really coachable.
  • Jude Pedrozo came down from OH and left no doubt the midwest will be good for Long Snappers in the coming years. Built well and snaps hard.
  • Thomas Johnstone was impressive from start to finish.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2016 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2016 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping National Event: VEGAS XXV!

Approximately 300 Long Snappers came in from nearly every state in the country and even Canada to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snappers. This was what you call a true national event to see how you really compare against the best in the world. As I stated before, there is nothing like Vegas and this one definitely did not disappoint. Testimonials are coming in non-stop regarding the weekend.  With the addition of an agility and tackling station, athleticism really played a role in the rankings.

Next ranking opportunity will be at any Rubio Long Snapping spring and summer camp.

This group was simply amazing with the level of talent they brought out to the field on both days. I could make this post 20 pages long talking about each and every one of them. Here are the best of the best….

  • John Shannon:  This kid snaps with as much power as anyone I have ever worked with in over a decade.  The ball explodes out his hands towards the punter.  He uses his whole, strong, body really well.  Athletically, he moves with purpose and runs very hard.  His lateral movement is excellent.  I would like to see him control his body a bit more by VEGAS XXVI.  He is ready NOW for the next level.
  • Johnny Den Bleyker: Den Bleyker is EXTREMELY athletic and just destroyed the agility and tackling station at VEGAS XXV.  He moved flawlessly and made it look effortless.  Not only is he a great Long Snapper, but a true athlete as well.  Den Bleyker has very quick hands when he is snapping.  The ball flies out of the gate and is almost hard to time.  He has a great attitude and work ethic.  He is always improving. He is ready now for the next level.
  • Jake Cesear:  He is built EXTREMELY long and is, easily, one of the top athletes in his class.  Cesear has a frame that will be able to put on another 40 pounds in the next couple of years.  That will definitely make a difference on punt coverage. His starting form is very good and he is using his whole body really well. He needs to make sure he is keeping his weight back so he doesn’t fall forward and is able to block more efficiently.  There is TON of upside on this kid.
  • Ben Wyatt:  It was easy to choose Wyatt to be a member of the TOP 12.  Athletically, he ran very well and had a nice release.  He moved with purposed and was full of aggression.  He has very good control of his body.  Wyatt is a true student of Long Snapping and is always improving. He has made incredible advances in a very short amount of time. This kid has some severe raw power and tries to hurt the punter.  I love it.  Watch this kid.
  • Geron Eatherly:  Eatherly is definitely coming into his own and making a name for himself as one of the best Long Snappers in the country in his class.  His form is excellent and he uses all of his body.  I want to see him snapping as hard as possible each time, making sure he is fully reaching back on his follow through, and that he remembers to keep his balance back.  He has really easy fixes that I would expect are completed by VEGAS XXVI.  Athletically, Eatherly needs to be able to control his body a bit more when moving forward and laterally. He runs very hard.  I would like to see him have lighter feet over the bags.  He is headed towards greatness…quickly.
  • Koby Walsh:  He snaps with an incredible amount of confidence.  He is a Long Snapper that ALWAYS expects to win and I love it.  Athletically, he runs hard and with a purpose.  Walsh blocked well, had a good release, and a solid tackle.  The more he drives his elbows and just lets the ball fly, the better he will be.  He ALWAYS improves for me. He will make a college coach very happy in the near future.
  • Damon Johnson:  Athletically, he was, EASILY, one of the top Long Snappers throughout the weekend.  He runs really well.  He was fast, agile, and moved effortlessly through the agility and tackling station.  Johnson is definitely going to be a factor on punt coverage.  His form is excellent and the more he trusts it, the better he will be in the long run.  He can easily snap in the .7s and can get in the .6s IF he snaps as physically as hard as possible.  Getting his head up quickly after he snaps and making sure his spiral is completely locked down is going to be key in moving up.  You should keep a close eye on him as we finish off his junior year.
  • Charles McDonough:  Another solid jump in the rankings by McDonough after his performance at VEGAS XXV.  His form is looking very good and he is snapping with good power.  Locking down his spiral is going to be key for him.  He is rapidly moving up the rankings and could take the top spot by the summer time.  Athletically, he moves really well and showed great agility throughout the weekend. Keep a very close eye on him.
  • Logan Klusman:  Klusman really came on the scene and did very well at VEGAS XXV. He is an EXTREMELY smooth Long Snapper that snaps a very catchable ball.  The ball is tight and really quick.  Making sure he is fully following through will help a ton with his accuracy.  I want to see him throw his fingers all the way back and not just flicking them to the punter.  He won’t miss at that point.  Athletically, he runs hard with good lateral movement. He needs to get a bit more control of his body.  This kid should be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by VEGAS XXVI or the TOP 12 camp. Watch him.
  • John Aloma:  The kid snaps the ball as if he is trying to put a hole in the punter.  The ball is beyond fast. His snaps are smooth and very accurate.  Aloma is a true student of the position. I would love to see him KNOW how good he is and never snap without confidence…ever. His release point is huge for him and when he adjusts it, it is the only time he even misses his target.  Athletically, Aloma snapped, blocked, and released very well.  Being smooth and not heavy while going forward and laterally will be huge for him getting to the next level.  If he can lock down his athleticism, he is an EASY 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.
  • Connor Kirkegaard:  When he was on, he was REALLY on.  By VEGAS XXVI, I want it to be one constant weekend of domination.  Snapping full speed and with max power will be crucial in getting him to be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.  This kid can EASILY do it and needs to know he can do it. Giving his full effort with all snaps will be key.  Athletically, he runs very hard and accelerates well.  He needs to make sure he is in full control of his body at all times.  The ball is in his court and he will be as GREAT as he chooses to be.
  • Erik Dickerson:  He did exceptionally well at the agility and tackling station showing that he is a true athlete.  His movements were very smooth and fluid.  I have no doubt he will be a presence on punt coverage.  His snapping is very solid with good accuracy and speed.  He is able to hit in the .7s and has a good spiral.  Dickerson needs to make sure he is focused on getting his strong lower half fully involved to create more power on his punt snaps.  To increase his accuracy, I would love to see him make sure he gets his eyes all the way through and not pausing them towards the middle of the snap. There is TONS of potential and upside on Dickerson.
  • Scott Meyer:  Meyer is a very smooth Long Snapper with tons of upside.  When he is relaxed and just letting the ball fly, there is no one better in the country.  Athletically, he blocked well but needs to work on his agility.  Moving forward and laterally should be pretty darn flawless.  Aggression with his running and snapping will be key as well as he moves towards the next level. I would like to see him make sure he doesn’t pop out his feet when he is snapping so he doesn’t lose any power.  Snapping with his full power will be big for him.  Keep an eye on him.
  • Anthony Ratliff:  Ratliff had a great weekend at VEGAS XXV and is certainly in the lead for EVENT ELITE at VEGAS XXVI.  He is snapping with some very good power on his punts. He snaps with anger and I like it.  I would love to see him continue to work on the speed of his hands out of the gate. Quickness and no catchable hitch will be key in rising in the rankings.  Release point with his fingers will be a big help with his accuracy.  Athletically, he moved with good agility and speed. Ratliff needs to make sure he remains smooth and doesn’t look awkward when moving forward and laterally.  Trust me, keep a very close eye on this Long Snapper.

Notables: Donald Reiter, Trent Kramer, Jake Munoz, Gus Karres, Jack Quiggle, Josh Brady, Blevyns Jumper, Jon Letter, & Colton Piatt.

Recap Article & Video of the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in GA (March 2, 2014)

Long Snappers came out to GA to attend the Rubio Long Snapping GA Camp on March 2nd from MS, GA, FL, TN, KY, AL and OH  to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field, had a film and classroom session, a recruiting seminar and ended the day with a competition with Rubio present and running the camp. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

The overall winner of the camp was Dalton Masters (FL, ’15). Dalton had an excellent day with smooth, strong snaps that were very accurate. He is, easily, one of, if not the, strongest Long Snappers in the country. He is built like a brick house and was using all of his strength very well throughout the day. He was on fire throughout the competition and was overflowing with confidence. Great overall day for Masters!

The TOP 2014 Long Snappers in attendance were…

  • Andrew Ashe (MS) was great all day long. He has a wonderful frame and an even better attitude. This Long Snapper is ALWAYS improving. He is going to make someone very happy in the future.
  • Joel Baldwin (MS)) continues to get bigger, stronger and better. He looks like a D1 athlete right now and he is snapping like one as well. Tons of confidence on Baldwin right now.
  • John Morrison (GA) has some of the best form in the country and the harder he snaps the ball, the better he will be. Great attitude and very smart.

The TOP 2015 Long Snappers in attendance were….

  • Blake Ferguson (GA) was DOMINANT all day long in GA. He is looking outstanding in every sense of the word. He is built VERY well, has great form and is beginning to truly snap with confidence. The question for Blake is how great does he want to be. LSU really won the lotto on him.
  • Liam McCullough (OH) left no doubt he is worthy of the scholarships he is already offered. He is massive, snapping the ball hard and hunting for the top spot in the country. He is just flat out good and getting better. He is a sure fire scholarship Long Snapper.
  • Travis Baugus (GA) is really coming into his own right now and the rest of his class should be on the lookout. He is snapping the ball hard and like he knows he will win sooner than later. Keep a very close eye on him in Vegas. He is good.
  • Riley Lovingood (TN) showed why Tennessee offered him a scholarship…this kid can snap. He is built very well and uses his whole body well. The lower he gets his butt, the better he will be and he is really good right now!
  • Ryan Parris (AL) had the best overall camp of his life in GA. He is getting stronger by the second and he uses all of his body when he snaps. The kid can snap some heat. The more he locks down his consistency, the higher he will go in the ranks. He looked exceptional out in GA.
  • Connor Kubala (GA) is like clockwork for having great camps with me. He is a good Long Snapper with a great, non-chalant attitude that allows him to handle pressure very well. He will do very well in college.
  • Steven Nixon (GA) had a great day in GA. He is VERY strong and used his body well. Moves extremely well on his feet and is starting to snap like I know he can. Great attitude.
  • Drew McCracken (GA) might be the most athletic Long Snapper in his class. Snaps a good, clean ball and has the ability to hit D1 speeds. Confidence and size will be key for McCracken.

Other notable Long Snappers: Hunter Womac, Matthew Coklan, Hunter Colonna, Logan Hamilton

The TOP 2016 Long Snappers in attendance were….

  • Scott Meyer (GA) left no doubt he was the best sophomore Long Snapper in his class in GA. He is built well and snapping with some great speed. Sky is the limit for him. Event Elite?
  • Josh Brady (GA) was excellent all day. He pretty much has a D1 body right now and he is beginning to snap like a college Long Snapper as well. His entire class better lock on him.

Other notable Long Snappers: Anthony Ratliff, Sean Somers, Gunter LaPrad

The TOP 2017/18/19 Long Snappers in attendance were….

    • Quentin Skinner (GA) is a 2019 Long Snapper that would EASILY start for about 90% of the varsity football teams in the country….I am not kidding. He is really that good. Every college should already have him on their radar.
    • Roen McCullough (OH) is a 2018 Long Snapper that is doing very, very well for his age. He is strong and uses his strength well. Love to see him lift up his butt and lean back a tad. Very good overall base already. Keep an eye on him.
    • Enzo Anthony (FL) is a 2019 Long Snapper with great form, a wonderful attitude and a drive to be the best. Tons of talent already in Enzo.
