Overall Champion Joe Shimko with Corey Adams

For the overall RSI scores from the NJ camp, please go HERE

The overall champion of the camp was Joe Shimko. Joe has been a Rubio Long Snapper for quite some time now and has shown tremendous improvement in a short period of time. Not only was he the overall champion, he was also the speed champion, beating out Austin Mosier in a sudden death finals. Joe is a great kid who works very hard.

The finals were between Declan McCauley (31.03), Nick Wissinger (28.57), Joe Shimko (23.08), Joe McCabe (21.88), Jake Foggia (19.78), and Zach Zimmerman (18.56).

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Nick Wissinger had a great day in NJ. He snaps the ball with a lot of aggression and power. The ball jumps back towards the punter in a hurry and is very accurate at the same time. Needs to watch picking the ball a tiny bit as he snaps and watch his weight distribution, but he showed great coachability and know he will work on those immediately.

Brian Richards showed a tremendous amount of athletic and physical talent during the camp in NJ. Massive human being who looks like he could play TE in college right now. Very raw and with some fine tuning of his form he can be excellent. Snaps with a lot of power and will only get better from here on out.

Kenneth King soaks up every single thing you say to him and works to incorporate them immediately on the field. Beyond coachable and has a great attitude. Has come a long way with his form, and with more consistent and explosive snapping he will see a night and day difference in his speed.

Matt Gannon may have been one of the most improved snappers at the camp. His form looks night and day difference from the last NJ regional camp, and has a bright future ahead of him if he continues to improve like he has. Very good athlete who crushed the agility drill.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Austin Mosier is so big and powerful for his age it is almost unfair. He was ripping the ball back all day and was barely missing. The scary thing is he has more power in him if he can get his butt down just a tad more and use his legs fully. Very high ceiling for this snapper and am excited to see him improve!

Joe Shimko was great all day. Snaps a very quick ball and his accuracy continues to improve. Absolutely destroyed the agility drill and showed he can be effective in coverage after snapping the ball. His blocking has improved as well and he is starting to develop into the full package.

Zach Zimmerman had a great first outing at his first Rubio Long Snapping camp. His form is darn near perfect, just needs to get his legs engaged a little sooner and it will be flawless. He made the later rounds of the speed competition with his quick hands. Am excited to see how much progress he has made at his next Rubio Long Snapping camp!

Brian Cocciolillo showed some very technically sound form all day and showed a lot of improvement on the minor details as well. As he continues to snap harder and more power things will click for him. On the verge of it all coming together and jumping up the charts.

Andrew McGimpsey is a very large and athletic snapper who has all the tools to be great. His frame is so long that if he can get his legs fully involved in the snap, he will snap bullets back to the punter. Great kid and attitude and know he will take everything taught at the camp home with him and get better.

Michael O’Keefe had a strong showing all day. Very strong kid who shows flashes of excellence when everything works together. Becoming more consistent will be the next major hurdle for him, but know that with continued drill work and smart training he can achieve it!

Thomas Dougherty has tons of upside that he on the verge of capturing. Very coachable kid who was hungry to get better all day. Very close to it all coming together for him, and am excited to see his improvement at the next Rubio Long Snapping Camp!

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Bryce Eimer was excellent all day, and his snapping well beyond his age. Snaps a very hard ball and the only time he misses is high because the ball continues to climb back at such a great rate to the punter. Sky is the limit for Bryce and expect big things out of him in the next few years.

Declan McCauley is so big and smooth it is unbelievable, and then factor his age into the equation and it is unheard of! Will be able to get more speed on his ball when he can incorporate his legs fully, and when that happens there is a very strong chance he could be one of the top snappers in his class.

Jake Foggia has improved so much over the past 6 months it is exciting to see. He snaps a very smooth, catchable, accurate ball. Once he is able to consistently snap hard and gain a bit more strength he is going to put a lot of people in his class on notice.

Joe McCabe is a very accurate snapper which tons of potential. Once he can fine tune some things with his lower body and his follow though, everything will come together for him nicely. Great kid who is very coachable and look forward to seeing him at the next Rubio Long Snapping camp!

Frank Lord had a very productive camp, showing a lot of improvement throughout the day. He is a good athlete with great flexibility, and as he continues to work on the small details in his snap, he will see rapid improvement. Snapping hard and trusting his form will be big for him, but seeing how coachable he was on the field and in the class room I know he will be up for the challenge!

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS
Zack Taylor shows tremendous skill for his age. His form is off the charts and the only thing he will need is time. More strength and size will be big for him, just needs to be patient. Excited to see him develop over the next four years!

Paul Meyers is dripping with so much potential it is scary. He is very tall with a great long frame. Getting his form down now prior to putting on muscle will be extremely important, and he is already well on his way. His ceiling is very high, just needs to be persistent and put in work – which I know he will!

Recap the NJ Spring Camp (4/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on April 9th, 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 Chicago on April 23rd.

This was the sixth 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 NY, NJ, MD, VA, MA, PA, CT, OH, and NC all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

Senior Staff Member Corey Adams with Champion Corbin Robertson

The overall camp champion was Corbin Robertson (2018)! Corbin is incredibly smooth and his catchability is off the charts. He was the most accurate snapper of the camp, hitting 5 consecutive 3s on the target to go from 6th seed to camp champion! He was unflappable in the finals and handled the pressure very well. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

The finals included Kevin Crabtree, Billy Taylor, Rino Monteforte, Jack Hadley, Jude Pedrozo and Corbin Robertson
TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Billy Taylor

Billy Taylor was dominant all day in NJ. His combination of speed (he was the speed champion of the camp!) and accuracy is top notch and Rutgers is lucky to have him on their team next year. His ball comes out so fast and in such a tight spiral, it looks like it is fired out of a jugs machine. He continues to develop physically and looks like he can step onto college field and play today.

Kevin Crabtree is a massive human being and was throwing heat all day. He went head to head with Billy in the speed finals, and was barely edged out. He moves very well for his size and his accuracy was consistently solid all day.

Mario McIntyre (JC) really impressed with his speed and physical ability. A lot of punters were caught off guard by his snaps as they pop out of his hands so quickly. Very solid long snapper, one of the most athletic people at the camp as well.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Jack Hadley

Jack Hadley has everything you look for in a top long snapper: size, power, accuracy, athleticism. VERY large man who moves incredibly well. His form and flexibility is incredible for a person of his size. Ball comes out so effortlessly and just cuts through the air. Expect big things out of him in the future

Jon Jarrett really surprised at this camp. Was firing bullets back all day and was soaking up all the instruction and film work like a sponge. Very eager long snapper who will apply everything he learned and take the next step to being great.

Corbin Robertson obviously stood out as the camp champion, but even before then he was competing a high level. His ball is silky smooth and accurate; you could almost catch it with your eyes closed. Big kid who continues to improve at every camp. Excited to see him compete at Vegas 30!

Matt Aloni is a very technically sound long snapper who performed great all camp. Has great size and showed consistent accuracy all day. His form is something you can use as a video example for younger snappers. Very attentive all camp and will continue to improve like he has in the past!

Brian Richards had a great day and improved through it all. He has a very athletic build and can be a factor in coverage and blocking. With some work he can really climb the ranks.

Matt Gannon showed great accuracy all day. His form improved consistently after the film review in the afternoon. Great footwork in blocking, and crushed the agility portion of the camp.

Notables: Josh Windsor, Joseph O’Rourke, Robbie Wiley, Joseph Crima

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo

Jude Pedrozo was locked in all day with his speed and accuracy. Very athletic underclassman who has tons of confidence to go with his ability. Already competing at a high level for his age, time will only tell how amazing he can potentially be.

Drew Brenowitz showed tons of power all day. He snaps the ball so hard that he was missing high. Once he grasped the concept that is ball is climbing the whole way to the punter and to adjust his release point a little earlier, he was deadly accurate. Tons of potential.

Ryan Flowers is a big kid who very rarely misses. His accuracy was impressive all day and he really took in all the coaching through the day. A couple tweaks to get his speed down and he will be a dangerous snapper to look out for.

Evan Davis has tons of potential. Physically gifted and is very athletic for his size. Accuracy was spot on all day. Once he tightens up his spiral he will be one to keep an eye on.

Dom Serapigilia is a snapper who continues to improve every time I see him. His form for his size is incredible, and his consistency is directly correlated to it. He is a great kid who is un-rattled by any situation you put him in. Speed will continue to develop and he will start to become dominant.

Ryan Sullivan snaps such a smooth ball it looks effortless on the field. He has tons of potential once he starts to snap hard and focus on his speed. Excited to see him develop.

John Morton is a very big underclassman who has his accuracy down. Once he starts to use his big body and put some power behind the snap he will jump the rankings quickly.

Notables: Stephen Sokach-Minnick, Matt Blount, Joseph Shimko, Holden Ford

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS AND BEYOND…

Rino Monteforte

Rino Monteforte (class of 2022!) competed with the upperclassman as one of the top 6 for the accuracy portion of the camp. Has tons of confidence for his age and his form is very advanced. Very advanced for this point of his career and excited to see him grow!

Declan McCauley is a massive underclassman and looks like he could be a senior in high school. Frame is exactly what you want and he already has it filled out. His speed and accuracy is well beyond his age as well. Very impressed with his development and can’t wait to see what he develops into!

Bryce Eimer impressed all day. He advanced the furthest out of this age group in the speed portion of the camp. His form is very solid, and once he gets his accuracy locked in, he is going to be dominant.

Jake Deluccia absolutely fires the ball back to the punter. The ball jumps out of his hands and has a tight spiral. Transitioned into blocking very well. A few small adjustments to his stance and everything will come together.

Connor Rhinehart has come a long way in a short period of time. His body is starting to develop and it shows with the speed of his snap. He is very accurate and snaps a very smooth ball. Excited to see him to continue to develop physically and see what he grows into.

Luke Byrne is going to be something special once he develops a bit more physically. His ball has a very tight spiral and is very accurate. Once he can grow some strength and develop some flexibility he will be extremely impressive. One to watch.

Zack Taylor has big shoes to fill (older brother is Billy from class of 2017) but he is well on his way. His form is almost identical to his brothers (which is pretty darn good). Once he develops a bit more physically, the sky is the limit. Very excited to watch him grow.

Andrew Dufault (class of 2023!) shows incredible potential this early on. His form is very sound and he snaps a very good spiral. Once he makes a few small adjustments he is going to grow into something special.

Notables: Connor Montgomery, Colin Blount, Patrick Cooney, Spencer Rhinehart
