Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond.

Long Snappers from TX, KS, LA, OK, CA, MO, MS & IL all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the TX Camp…

The overall winner of the camp was Luke Rizzo. Rizzo is a TOP 12 Camp invitee that left no doubt that invitation was well deserving. One of the hottest Long Snappers from the start of the camp to the finish. Form is good and he is snapping with great power. Even his misses were simply off by minimal inches. Size is good and he is moving well on his feet. Rizzo is getting better by the second and continues to learn how to dominate.

The finals in TX were between Luke Rizzo (48.1), John Farris (47.56), Dillon Hayes (42.67), Evan Gibson (34.21), Tre Rubio (33.78) and Kuper Imrem (32.53)

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles was an absolute machine all day in TX. It is so fun to watch battles snap as he locks in and just crushes it….every single time. He has some of the quickest hands in the country and he can easily hit sub .75 on a very consistent basis. Body is looking solid and he is very determined. Just a flat out machine snapping the ball and is easily a scholarship Long Snapper.

Zach Edwards was the overall winner of the speed competition with snaps well under .70…yes, .70. His ball was picking up speed as the day progressed. One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes with his snapping.

Zach Edwards

Dillon Hayes continues to find his way into the finals of each camp with his great poise under pressure and his incredible consistency and accuracy.

Jax Wilson looks like a college tight end right now and has some of the most amazing upside I have seen in years from a Long Snapper. Body is great and his potential is off the charts. When he is on, there is no one better.

Evan Gibson is looking very smooth and strong. Body is powerful and he is really starting to snap with lots of confidence. Love his attitude.

Tre Rubio was snapping a great spiral all day and had many snaps sub .75. Tre was on fire all day and looked very impressive.

Chandler Moses was snapping with great confidence, a nice frame, and some good zip on the ball.

Cole Voyles has some increadile form and a frame that is able to put on some good weight over the next couple of years.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Luke Rizzo

Luke Rizzo was incredible all day long in TX. This is obvious as he was the overall winner of the whole camp and made it deep into the speed finals round as well. The more confidence he snaps with and the more he knows how great he truly is, the better he will be in the long run.

Braedy Wilson

Braedy Wilson is a tall drink water with upside that is off the charts. Ball is fast as he can easily be sub .75 when he lets the ball fly out of his hands. Frame is great with room to put on some good weight over the next year.

Caden Bolz came our from KS and was very solid. Ball was quick, body is thick and he has great power throughout.

Nathan Tokar is really starting to snap with some solid confidence and had no problem getting the ball under .80 on a regular basis. Every time I see Tokar he is looking more and more physically fit.

Chad Wolf is big, strong and overflowing potential. The upside on Wolf is off the charts. Good form and attitude.

Nick Stoia has good follow through and the ability to easily get the ball under .80. Smoothing out his form and becoming more and more consistent will move him way up the rankings.

David Medrano showed great upside and I love his attitude. Body is strong and he snaps a smooth ball back to the punter.

Kuper Imrem did well all day in TX and made it to the finals. The more confidence he snaps with, the better he does.

Nate McCormack did really well all day in TX. Very impressed with his attitude and how much he has improved over the last couple of months.

John Farris made it to the finals and was close to taking his talents deep into the finals. Always improving and one of the best attitudes of all the Long Snappers in the 2019 class.

Notables: Ross Arroyo, Josh Burtch, Brayden Chandler, Landon Sleeper

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Blake Hooker

Blake Hooker was tremendous all day in TX and even made it very deep into the speed finals as he was one of the last three Long Snappers to be snapping. Ball is tight and he is headed towards greatness. The more he knows that, the better he will do.

Dylan Wiltcher

Dylan Wiltcher looked very solid with great snap speeds under .80 and a tremendous attitude. Dylan is good an headed towards great.

John Bergeron

John Bergeron was terrific all day in TX. Snap speeds were great and consistent under .80. Need Bergeron to not be so surprised of his greatness and except to dominate.

John Luke Roberts showed massive upside. Kid is going to be good.

Notables: Phillip Bourque, Peter Brown, Bryce Felt, Coltin Knape, Jackson McFarland, Ethan Wells, Ethan Lane

TOP 2021 & BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker

Nick Walker was excellent in TX. Kid is growing like a weed and is already snapping like a Varsity Long Snapper right now. His hands are quick and he can easily get the ball sub .80 at 15 yards. Nick is headed towards greatness if he maintains this pace.

Connor Able showed great upside in TX with snaps consisntely under. 82 and a nice, long frame.

Nate Adams might have the most potential of any 2021 Long Snapper in the country. Kid is massive and looks like a college tight end right now. If he works on his form, he could easily dominate his class at VEGAS XXXI.

Grant Goltra is flat out dripping with potential and is very coachable.

Karsten Battles (Speed Champion) and John Raines (Overall Champion)

Long Snappers from TX, KS, LA, S, FL OK, OH, NM, AR, CO, MN, NY & CA all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

The overall camp champion was John Raines of MS. Raines got fire in the afternoon and hit three after three after three to claim the title of champion! His form is good and he was snapping with some good pop back to the punter. He also came in second place in the speed competition! Easily one of the best days Raines has had in front of me. Very impressed and so will college coaches if he continues at this pace.

The finals were between Karsten Battles (86.96), Zach Edwards (57.33), John Raines (53.42), Hayden Hood (50.65), Evan Gibson (40.74) and Nate McCormack (26.26). The full finals video can be seen below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles absolutely destroyed the RSI beating the previous high RSI score by over 20 points. He literally scored every single point you could and averaged under .70 for each snap! Battles ended up being the overall speed champ of the camp. This kid is ready for college…NOW!

Zach Edwards is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and he crushed the agility section of the camp. Form is very good and when he is on, he is really on. Very close to greatness.

Evan Gibson looked very smooth and strong throughout the day in TX. Confidence is starting to come along nicely and his accuracy is solid. Always improving and the kid is a workhorse.

Cole Voyles was impressive in TX with good speed and solid hip movement through the agility section. Built long and has room to put on some good weight over the next year.

Dillon Hayes showed good accuracy and consistency. Really driving his chest through will pick up his speed and make him a top Long Snapper.

Tre Rubio was snapping pearls all day long in TX. Form is good and his spiral is on point. Very impressed with Tre’s improvement over the last year.

Tyler Springer showed great athleticism and quick hands getting the ball back to the punter.

Notables: Freddy Barnes, Ryan Jurczak, Marshall Ballard, Grayson Broussard

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Hayden Hood

Hayden Hood is beyond athletic and snaps a powerful ball back to the punter. When he is on, he is very on. Great speed on his ball with very little wasted movement makes Hayden one of the best in his class.

Enzo Anthony has great form and is one of the best lefties in the country. Growing really well and his athleticism is picking up nicely. Ball can pop back to the punter with good power.

Caden Bolz did really well in TX. Power is solid and he is snapping the ball consistently in the mid to high .7s. Some slight tweaks to his form will really increase his overall accuracy and consistency. Great start to Caden.

Nate McCormack is coming along nicely with good pop and some speeds in the low .8s. Extending out a bit will really help increase the speed of the ball and move him way up the rankings. Good improvement and I like the direction he is headed.

Chad Wolf is a Long Snapper with great size and potential. Consistency is solid and his speeds are in the high .7s. Sky is the limit for Wolf.

Notables: Austin Adams, Chase Crabtree, Hudson Brown, Izeya Floyd, Landon Sleeper, Max Murry, John Farris, Tyler Hanes

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Blake Hooker

Blake Hooker was solid all day in TX. Form is very good and so is his attitude. His hands are really quick and he can already snap, consistently, in the mid .7s. Great upside and always improving.

Ethan Wells was snapping with some good heat all day in TX. Athletically, he does really well and is definitely going to be a factor on the punt coverage team. Pop is very good for his size.

Phillip Bourque has good starting form and lots of potential. I like the way he is exploding and he is getting stronger. Really driving through will increase his overall speed and accuracy. Very good attitude.

John Bergeron showed solid consistency and a good attitude. Always improving.

Nick Wagner has good form, quick hands and solid upside. Moved really well on his feet and is a great athlete on the punt team.

Top 2019 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2019 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Mike Zahara, WA
Super laid back kid. Didn’t get overly worked up about anything. Kept his cool and took instruction well. Thought it was a great sign from a kid of his age, not getting frazzled or frustrated. Really good form. Has long frame that can fill out nicely. Once he puts on some muscle and snaps hard, he will be great.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Simon Samarzich, CA
Simon had a good weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a true athlete that can be as good, or great, as he chooses to be with his Long Snapping. Once he fully dedicates himself to snapping, he could easily take the top spot and run with it. Accuracy is solid and his form is excellent for his age. Handles pressure well and could have actually won the whole thing in the desert. Like to see some more speed on the ball and that will come with consistency of snapping motion and size. Tremendous potential on Simon.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Hayden Hood, TX
Hood was excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and showed no mercy in TX. His confidence is starting to come along VERY nicely and I love it. Needs to make sure he is focus on gaining some size as that will assist him in blocking, getting down field and the overall speed of the ball. Kid is very good and just looks to get better. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and definitely at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Tyler Shaw, WI
Really liked what I saw out of Tyler at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He is a long athlete that is snapping with good power and confidence. Love to see him focus on leaning back more so he goes towards the punter and not up/forward. Falling forward will cause the ball to rise a bit and lose some accuracy. Kid has tremendous upside and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. WATCH HIM at VEGAS XXIX.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Caden Bolz, KS
Caden did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good power in his hands. Ball is quick and he has no problem hovering in the .8s at all times. By VEGAS XXIX, I want to make sure he is getting his eyes/head all the way through as this will greatly increase the overall speed of the ball AND the accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Jude Pedrozo, OH
Jude continues to impress me and didn’t let up at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and is snapping with a great deal of confidence. The upside on this kid is off the charts and he could make the TOP 12 in January if he continues to snap well. Overall accuracy and consistency is what I will be focused on seeing at VEGAS XXIX. He needs to know he can be one of the greats.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Austin Sullivan, NY
I liked what I saw out of Austin at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is very large Long Snapper for his age and has a good snapping motion. Very fluid Long Snapper. I like his form and I want him to trust it. If he was to trust his form and really let the ball fly, he will be able to get well under .90 by fall and definitely by XXIX in January. TONS OF POTENTIAL on Austin and when his legs get fully locked and timed up, he will dominate. LOVE HIS ATTITUDE.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Dominic Serapiglia, PA
Dominic did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good overall form. Ball is tight and he is showing some good accuracy. Like to see him increase the speed of his legs as they are just a tad behind his very quick hands. If he can get his timing locked down, he will be snapping under .77 by VEGAS XXIX…easily. Increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings as well. Good upside and always improving.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Quentin Skinner, GA
Skinner, AKA Mad Dog, had a solid weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He can EASILY snap a D1 ball right now when he is on. Every once in awhile, he will forget to follow through and the ball will die. If he can fix that, and I know he can, he can be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by next Vegas if not sooner. CONSISTENCY will be his biggest thing to focus on.
