Recap of the CA Spring Camp (3/4/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 4th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Long Snappers from CA, OH, CO, OR, AZ & NV all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

The overall champions of the camp were Ryan Aguilar (overall) and Simon Samarzich (speed). Ryan was dominant with his beyond smooth snaps that just appear in the punter’s hands. Form is good and he handles pressure extremely well. He barely even missed one time in the finals. Tremendous snapping when it counted the most.

You can see the full finals video with Aidan Livingston, Ryan Aguilar, Jack Landherr, Simon Samarzich, Brendan Beattie and Jacob Garcia below…

Morgan White

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Morgan White left no doubt he was the best senior Long Snapper in attendance. He is strong and snaps a very powerful ball. Morgan hovered in the .7s all day and moves well on his feet. Kid is aggressive on the field and can easily play at the next level.

Niko Johnson shows great determination and moves extremely well on his feet. This JC Long Snapper has all of the tools to play at the next level.

Jake Mauch can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile way and has all the potential in the world. Once it clicks for him, he will dominate.

Notables: Josh Garcia

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich continued his dominance and left no doubt he is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country. He can move very extremely well on his feet, snaps with confidence and handles pressure like a champ. He ended up winning the speed competition and can snap at the next level right now.

Jack Landherr was on fire in CA. Body is great and when he gets his upper body all the way through, he absolutely crushes the competition. Upside is off the charts and I like his attitude. Kid is a flat out stud.

Ryan Aguilar is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in the country and ended up winning the overall competition! Pressure means nothing to him and when he catches fire, it is over for anyone going against him. He is so smooth it doesn’t even appear like he is doing anything and then, BOOM!, the ball crushes the punters hands.

Jack Landherr

Peter Bowden left no doubt he is one of the top juniors in the country. Great frame, moves well on his feet and I love his attitude.

Nathan Weneta looked great in CA. Pure athlete that is extremely smooth on his feet. Doesn’t even look like he is putting in any effort and he just chews up ground. Form is excellent and he didn’t have a snap over .78 all day long.

Aidan Livingston is an accurate Long Snapper with a good spiral. Aidan has the highest RSI score of the day and was the #1 seed go into the finals. Smooth and accurate Long Snapper that moves really well going forward.

Dean Lau is a machine on his feet and snaps with great power. Going straight back is going to make him unstoppable.

Brendan Beattie came out from Ohio and snapped some heat in CA. He can fly on his feet and when his spiral is on, he can crush the punter.

Andrew Gonneville has all of the potential in the world. Reaches through very well and can rip the ball back to the punter.

Matthew Rhodes was solid with his large frame and great balance.

NOTABLES: Danny Dixon, Nathan Hedberg, Josiah Hirsch, JJ Lindsay, Koby Tryggestad and Jesse Vasquez

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins had a very solid day in CA. Body is getting stronger and he rips the ball back to the punter with zero wasted movement. He snaps and the ball just appears in the punters hands. One of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country…in any class.

Jacob Garcia is an extremely smooth Long Snapper with one of the most catchable balls in his class. The ball will stick to the punters hands. Accuracy is very solid as he made it into the finals. All the tools to be one of the greats.

Cruz Rubio did very well in CA. He is a very thick and strong Long Snapper that moves pretty darn well on his feet. He has no problem keeping the ball in the mid .7s and could easily play at the next level if he keeps improving at this pace.

Jacob Garcia

Jaden Sanchez is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and can rip the ball back. Great attitude.

Michael Munoz has great potential and I am a big fan of his frame.

Bryce Felt impressed me with his attitude and how he continues to improve. Love his drive and he can get the ball under .79.

Tony Villareal is beyond smooth and snaps a very catchable ball.

Andrew Wells is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and can crush a punter when he leans back.

AJ Laux is a monster on the field and snaps a powerful ball back to the punter.

Davis Salom is big, powerful and is improving by the second.

Michael Tokos is coming along nicely and I love his attitude. Smooth and consistent Long Snapper.

NOTABLES: Nick Barcelos, Troy Sicaeros, Josh Hilton and Cody White

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

JT Greep

JT Greep had a great day in CA. Body is strong and he can already hit in the .7s. Smooth Long Snapper with excellent upside.

Chris Kent is big, strong and has great form. Very smooth Long Snapper that is already using his whole body very well.

Devon Hooper is very athletic and has great consistency on his snaps.

Triston Heyes has one of the best follow throughs in his class and great potential.

NOTABLES: Jamie Feldermann, Valentino Nguyen, Cade Parks, JB Revell and Camden Sten

Happy Ranksgiving to 2015 Long Snappers from CA Camp

The rankings are completed for ALL  2015 and JC Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping Summer Camp in CA.

Next ranking opportunity in CA will be on October 19 and at VEGAS XXV.

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.

For the rankings section, simply go to RubioLongSnapping.com  rollover PLAYER RANKINGS, rollover which CLASS you are looking for, click that CLASS, click LONG SNAPPERS and find your name.

Nike Spring Camp in CA

I can’t sleep. It is 2:24 am and I am pretty much wide awake. Couple reasons: baby on the way (May 23 and I am a thinker so my mind is always rolling on this one), a certain Apple product has peaked my interest, I watched Short Circuit a couple hours ago and was shocked at how bad it/the acting was (I refuse to believe all classic 80’s movies I grew up with are the same way!) and, finally, I am thinking a ton about this weekend’s Nike Spring Camp in CA.

(Side note: thought this was known, but apparently it is not, when you see something in my blogs in blue, like the words Apple product, that means there is a link within that word…click on it for a whole new world of possibilities. Double side note: you might also need to meander back through some past blogs to clear some things up)

This weekend’s camp is the beginning of my spring and summer tour. Think first day of school. I didn’t dread school when I was younger. I enjoyed it. It was easy and I was able to hang out with my friends. Don’t get me wrong, I was not a fan of homework, but rest of it (socializing, etc) made that part worth it for me. This camp is my first day of school…and I am excited.

It is essentially a local camp (I live in Idaho, but travel back to California quite often) for me so there will be a lot of Long Snappers that I know and this won’t be their first rodeo at a Rubio Long Snapping camp. I am very interested to see who steps up. Being comfortable around me is one thing. Performing in front of me is a whole other. The “regulars” know the routine and what I expect. The new guys will not. I would love to see a new Long Snapper come in and just wow me. Love it, but will it happen?

2011 –  Obviously, this class is stacked and there will be some key players in CA for this camp. I wonder if Scott Thompson and Tanner Gibas will show their dominance like they did in Vegas at the 9th Annual Event and blow everyone out of the water. Will Den Bleyker be confident and really let the ball fly? Will Longo show me how he has gained weight and prove that UCLA made a great decision in offering him a spot on the team? Will Gibbs stick his chest out, trust his form and let me see his improvement? How about Avila, the kid is built like a rock and is improving by the second.

2012 – This class is starting to really get their identity and it is solid. A lot of movement is going to occur in their rankings during the next nine months through the spring/summer camps and especially Vegas. This camp is their first step in a long journey and they need to start off on the right foot. The group in CA is filled with good Long Snappers…which ones will step up on Sunday and be great?

2013 – Several new sophomore Long Snappers will be attending this camp. Always intrigues me, but can they possibly keep up with some of the already old-timers? Key match-ups to see will be Lizanich (proven dominance), Mazza (up and coming, built like a 20 year old) and Thompson (form is best in class, and I am just waiting on the size to kick in). I am fully expecting a good amount of movement in this class.

Just read this post. Looks like I am putting a bit of pressure on the Long Snappers out in CA. That is not like me at all. I would never play a mind game like that now would I? Of course, being a Long Snapper is a position where one has to be able to handle an immense amount of pressure so maybe I would. Those that know me know the real answer is………
