Coach, Please take some time to listen to your Long Snapper

2015 Spring Rubio bannerCoach…Please allow me to warm up before you want me to snap live in practice. Think about it, would you really have your starting QB sit for 30 minutes and then tell him to throw a perfect 45 yard post? I didn’t think so.

Please take my craft seriously. I know you don’t think much of it, but I do. To me, Long Snapping is a main part of who I am now and who I plan to be in the future.

Please don’t just give me some lineman pads because I am on the line. I need to be able to move my arms. They actually make pads for my position. I swear they do. If you can find money in the booster fund for QB pads, maybe there is some funds for me as well.

Please don’t just rush past my snaps on film. Just like  other players can learn from film, so can I. If you don’t want to watch, maybe just allow me some time to watch on my own. I want to get better, allow me to do so.

Please treat me, and my position, with respect. I deserve it and so does anyone that plays Long Snapper. It is not the easiest thing to do and should be highly respected. If you think I am off on this one, try playing a game without a Long Snapper and see how that works out for you and the team.

Please trust me when I tell you that people actually do get recruited for Long Snapping nowadays. It is not like the old days when colleges just “found someone” on the team to do it. Don’t believe me? Look HERE

Coach, please listen to me.

Rubio Long Snapping Tip: How to Snap in the Rain

After about 50 inquiries, all revolving around possible rainy games this weekend, I thought it was time I just made it public for everyone.

Here is how you snap in the rain….

1. A rainy game usually means the referee will have a towel with him to try and keep the ball dry. If he doesn’t have one, be a pal and make sure he does AND continue to ensure he always has a dry towel throughout the game.

2. When you go into punt and/or pat, get up to the line and get your feet set IMMEDIATELY.

3. Then, AS SOON AS THE REFEREE PUTS THE BALL DOWN, grab it with your dominant hand. Getting a solid grip with your dominant hand will be key to snapping a wet ball.

4. The next step is simply making sure you keep your form stays the exact same. The weather should not, and will not, impact your form. The snapping motion should be, and will be, the same.

5. The final aspect of the snap is key…MAKE SURE you follow through and I mean really follow through. Pretend you are handing the ball to the punter. Yes, you need to block and/or get down field, but your MOST IMPORTANT job in a rainy game, or not a rainy game for that matter, is to SNAP THE BALL! Remember, you are a Long Snapper….not a long blocker and not a long runner. Your main job is to snap the ball…perfectly.

6. Have fun in the rain men! Make me proud and I will see you in the fall and in Vegas!!!
