Recap of the CA Fall Camp

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on October 29, 2017 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following WA, Rubio Long Snapping will head to TX on 11/12, NC on 11/19, GA on 12/3, AZ on 12/10, OH on 12/17 and then the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 1-15, 2018.

Long Snappers from CA, NV and Japan all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Kameron Hawkins. Kam is a 2020 Long Snapper from CA that was just coming off a win in Seattle last week. Just like last week, Kameron was the overall champion as well as the speed champion. His confidence is building and he doesn’t look to be letting up on the gas. He left no doubt of his dominance in the finals by only hitting threes! Not to mention, every single three Kameron hit, was a pure “swish” going into the opening. It was incredible to watch as he only took three snaps total in the finals. Kameron is an absolute workhorse that continues to improve on a daily basis with his Long Snapping, attitude and athleticism. As for snapping the ball, Kameron is at the college level right now.

The finals in CA were between Kameron Hawkins (CA, 2020), Charles DeRosier (CA, 2018), JJ Lindsay (CA, 2019), Danny Dixon (CA, 2019), Hidetka Kanazawa (Japan, JC) and Aidan Livingston (CA, 2019).

Recap Article of the CA Fall Camp (10/18/15)

CA
Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on October 18th for their fall camp. The camp had perfect weather and the talent was off the charts. CA is quickly becoming the hotbed of Long Snapping talent from top to bottom.

Long Snappers came out from CA, NV, AZ, CO & TX to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp, and new 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper, was Conner Kirkegaard (CA, ’16)! Kirkegaard, who has recently committed to Air Force, was outstanding all day in CA. He was snapping with a great deal of confidence (as he should be) and just letting the ball rip back to the punter. I was very impressed with Kirkegaard and Air Force will be as well!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Damon Johnson

    Damon Johnson

    Jake Cesear, who has recently committed to Wisconsin on full scholarship, left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country. Incredibly athletic and has the most upside of anyone in his class.

  • Damon Johnson, who has recently committed to West Virginia on full scholarship, was snapping smooth, crisp balls all day long. Speed is very strong and so is his attitude. His turn to win a big one.
  • John Aloma throws absolute heat back to the punter. VERY catchable ball and, EASILY, one of the best attitudes in the country. He will make a college coach very happy next year.
  • Koby Walsh continues to impress me with his drive and work ethic. Very smooth Long Snapper that will dominate when ALL of his snaps are full power.
  • Riley Shackelford can pass an eyeball test quickly and throw some severe heat back to the punter when it all clicks. Great attitude.
  • Matt O’Donoghue is thick, strong and snaps a great ball. This sleeper might no longer be sleeping.
  • Jacob Mimoun has improved as much as anyone over the past couple of years. Built very long and starting to really snap with confidence.
  • Jack Brennan has come out of nowhere and is very much in the conversation as one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Very athletic and always improving.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel

    Noah Rodriguez-Trammel

    Kyle Gibbs was simply a force to be reckoned with in CA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps fire back to the punter. Love to see him focus on consistency and flat out knowing he will dominate. Watch this kid at VEGAS XXVII.

  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammell has an incredible amount of upside and is great….NOW! He can pass an eyeball test from 100 yards away. Ball is quick and fast. He is VERY good.

    Kyle Petrucci

    James Townsend was dominant all day and proved he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. EXTREMELY athletic. Might be able to play two positions in college.

  • Kyle Petrucci is a mountain of a man with great form and potential. Needs to learn to trust his form and really let the ball fly out of his hands at all times. Incredible upside.
  • Brendan Bentley is a very smooth Long Snapper that is always improving. Kid is a workhorse and continues to impress me.
  • Andrew Domingo, pound of pound, was one of the best Long Snappers in CA. Of course, he needs to gain some pounds, but man can this kid snap the ball. Very impressive to watch him use ALL of  his body.

  • Nathan Weneta

    Nathan Weneta

    Nathan Weneta has improved drastically over the past couple of years and is a legit contender for the top Long Snapper for the class of 2019 Long Snappers. Good frame, wonderful form and an incredible attitude make him one to watch over the next couple of years.
