RSI Score Comparisons Between CA & NC

As you know by reading this blog, Rubio Long Snapping has adjusted the testing aspect of all regional camps this spring with the “introduction” of the RSI. I put “introduction” in quotes because RSI has been around for MANY years at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS Events but has just recently been worked into the regional camps to add continuity and to track the Long Snappers and their improvement.

For the first Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA, the RSI scores are shown here and the NC RSI scores are shown here. Now that two camps have concluded, I wanted to start comparing and contrasting two geographical areas and their Long Snappers. This could get VERY interesting! Here you go….

Recap of the CA Spring Camp (3/5/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 5th, 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!

This was the first 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

Simon Samarzich

Long Snappers from CA, NV, TX, IL, GA & UT all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Simon Samarzich (CA, ’19).  VEGAS 30! Samarzich has been on a tear ever since VEGAS XXIX in January where he was one of the most dominant Long Snappers in his class. You can tell he has been working hard and smart to fine tune his overall snapping motion. He is very athletic and extremely consistent with his snapping speed. Tons of upside on Simon as he just continues to improve.

You can see the full finals below….

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Noah Rodriguez-Trammell

Noah Rodriguez-Trammell looked his usual casual and comfortable self. He has great size, snaps a really smooth ball and is easily one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. Utah is getting a good one.

Harrison Hoffman was very solid all day and even got an offer from San Jose St. right after the camp. Easily the smoothest Long Snapper in CA and possibly the country. Never stops impressing me.

Chance Nelson is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in the country. Kid can fly downfield and is snapping a solid ball back to the punter.

Scott Stevens snaps a powerful ball and can pass an eyeball test from three miles away. Kid is massive and can play right now in college.

Notables: Johnny Fuentes and Nick Rovetti

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Brendan Bentley

Brendan Bentley was on fire all day in CA. Body is looking very solid and he is definitely moving better on his feet. Should be a flat out pure athlete by VEGAS 30. Love his attitude and work ethic.

Gabriel Cervantes continues to impress me with his overall frame and his snapping. Kid has grown about a foot in one year and he is using all of his body really well when he is snapping. Sky is the limit for this kid.

Kyle Petrucci was very impressive when he was snapping the ball hard back to the punter. Massive human being that is beginning to move better on his feet.

James Townsend is incredibly athletic and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. When he has everything click, his snaps are glorious.

Jesse Hooper was impressive in CA with his strong frame and powerful snaps.

Noah Howell is starting to really pick up steam and was looking solid in CA. Kid has great upside and starting to show off his true potential

Matt Tokos has a great personality and a smooth snap. He is the type of kid that a coach will love on and off the field.

Notables: Waide Brummer, Andrew Domingo, Max Nieland

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Ryan Aguilar

Ryan Aguilar had a very good day in CA. His snapping form is solid and he is able to handle pressure well. Consistency of his speed and just becoming more fluid throughout will really help him out at VEGAS 30.

Mason Napper came all the way out from GA and was impressive. I love his large from and he has great consistency with his snaps. He hovered right around .77 all day long. Excellent upside on Napper.

Nathan Weneta had a solid day in CA. Great from and moves extremely well on his feet. The less he thinks, the better he does. Upside is huge.

Dean Lau won the overall speed competition with a snap of a .72 at 15 yards! Not only can Lau snap the ball fast, the kid can run like the wind. Definite factor on punt coverage.

Brad George is athletic and snaps with rage…..and I love it. Great attitude on a terrific Long Snapper and person.

Dylan Black had a good day with snaps in the .7s. Consistency of speed and size will be huge for Dylan as we creep towards VEGAS 30.

Aidan Livingston impressed me with his work ethic, form and his accuracy. More power and confidence will push him well into the .7s by VEGAS 30.

Notables: JJ Lindsay, Jesse Vasquez, Reed Simmons, Derek Bedell

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….

Aaron Estrada

Aaron Estrada had a great day and made into the finals even though he had an ear infection and was sick. Starting form is good and he handles pressure well. Estrada got a little fatigued in the end but I have a feeling it was due to his body just saying “that’s enough” Very impressive day for Estrada.

Kameron Hawkins has, quite possibly, the best form in his class. He uses his body extremely well and can hit in the low .8s very consistently. Works hard and smart at all times.

Cruz Rubio is a thick, strong Long Snapper that moves well on his feet for his size. When Cruz gets set, he is the best in his class and can hit in the low .7s. Consistency of speed is going to be huge for him.

Jacob Garcia snaps a really nice tight spiral with good consistency. Need to see him get some more pressure on his left hand to center the ball more on the punter. Really good improvement over the past couple of months.

Notables: Michael Munoz, Michael Tokos, Tony Villarreal, Andrew Wells, Chris Kent, JT Greep, Kurt Chesney, Jamie Feldermann

Starting this spring, all Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will now be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair. 

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend.  Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 80 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). I believe the highest I have ever encountered a 60.61 by Kasey Kelleher at VEGAS XXIX. The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid. 

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

  • Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
  • Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
  • Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
  • Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
  • Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
  • Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
  • Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
  • Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush) If you have ever been to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Event, you know that one of the main parts of competition day is when each Long Snapper gets tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2017 Long Snappers!

The rankings are completed for ALL  2017 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping fall Camp in CA.

Next ranking opportunity will be in IL on November 9th and at VEGAS XXV.

Thomas Fletcher

#1 Long Snapper in the class of 2017, Thomas Fletcher

This class of Long Snappers is really staring to shine with three sophomores standing out.

  • Leading the pack was Thomas Fletcher of WA. Fletch was outstanding all day long in CA. He has done a good job of perfecting his form and getting bigger hasn’t hurt at all. He was on fire all day long and was even snapping in the low .7s to high .6s at times. Kid is very good and did well enough to take the top spot for his class!
  • Liked what I saw from Noah Rodriguez-Trammel as well. Kid is built VERY long and is dripping with potential.
  • Peter Snodgrass did well at the camp with his very quick hands and consistent snaps.
