Recap of the All-American Bowl Long Snappers

After two great days of competing at the FBU TOP GUN camp in Rock Hill, SC, two Long Snappers stepped up and earned their tickets to the All-American Bowl on January 5th, 2019 in San Antonio, TX! This bowl game is the largest High School Bowl game with over 40,000 in attendance and over 5 million watching live on NBC!

Rubio, Mad Dog, Erik Richards

At the conclusion of the first day, Erik Richards (National Scouting Director for the All-American Games) came over to see the talent and wanted one Long Snapper to snap in front of him and the crowd. Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner was chosen for the ultimate pressure snaps. Mad Dog is committed to LSU on full scholarship and proved he is worth it with three powerful snaps and even a show of athleticism as Richards wanted to see him snap and take off (even timed it). Right after the third snap, Richards announced the Mad Dog would be the first All-American Bowl Long Snapper!

On the second day, the competition was fierce but two Long Snappers came out on top to battle for a bowl spot. The finals round matchup was between Joe Shimko (NJ, ’19) and JC Vega (GA, ’19). Shimko is committed to NC State on full scholarship and Vega has an offer to Pikesville. Both Long Snappers were deserving but Shimko was just unstoppable when the pressure was on.

Very proud of all of the Long Snappers and can’t wait to see Shimko and Skinner represent themselves, their schools, their communities, their states and Rubio Long Snapping in San Antonio, TX!

Here is the matchup between Shimko and Vega….

2016 FBU Camps

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.

These camps do have smaller numbers than our regional camps and are MUCH more instructional based.

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.
