For the overall RSI Scores from the IL Camp, please go HERE

Overall Champion Jude Pedrozo and Speed Champion Pat Szczesniak

The overall champion of the camp was Jude Pedrozo. Jude is no stranger to winning at Rubio Long Snapping Camps as he is a former VEGAS winner and is always hovering around the finals. Very good body, great attitude and the ability to handle pressure really well make Jude one of the best in his class.

The finals were between Ross Hinders (60.87), Brendan Beattie (60.81), Charlie Gambs (45.83), Derek Hahn (28.57), Jude Pedrozo (24.42) & George Walsh (23.08). The full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Michael Vinson had a great day in IL. He has some good size, moves pretty darn well on his feet and can snap a nice ball that can hit in the low .7s. Listens well and is very coachable. Excellent attitude and Vinson is going to make his college coach really happy in the next couple of years.

Ross Hinders throws some severe heat and flies down the field. No doubt he will be a factor on the punt coverage team. Ball is really powerful and his upside is off the charts.

Derek Hahn out of Nebraska continues to improve greatly. He did really well in IL and made it all the way to the finals. He was only a couple of inches away from going very far into the finals brackets. Great attitude and always getting better.

Levi McKinney showed great athleticism and can hover in the .7s. Really like his upside and attitude.

Notables: Alex Rosenbaum, Ryan Jurczak, Nathan Slusarski

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo was excellent all day. His personality is off the charts and will be a leader on and off the field. Body is strong and he can snap a powerful ball. Accuracy and consistency are solid. Moves well on his feet. Great upside.

Patrick Szczesniak was only able to perform in half the camp due to prior commitment but left no doubt in half time time that he has the ability to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. He should be very focused on the TOP 12 Camp next year.

Brendan Beattie throws some severe heat and hovers in the low. 7s. His ball really powers back to the punter. He moves like a cheetah and will definitely be a factor on the punt coverage team.

Charlie Gambs made it deep into the final and had a great day in IL. Love his attitude and upside. Very smooth Long Snapper

Brad George is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. George snaps a really fast ball that is consistently in the mid to low .7s. Strong Long Snapper.

Samuel Wiesbrook is tall drink of water with excellent footwork and great upside. Ball is accurate and very consistent.

David O’Keefe showed tremendous upside and a smooth, consistent snap. The potential on this kid is off the charts.

Ethan Warren is strong, athletic and consistent with his snapping.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Christo Kelly was excellent in IL. He has an excellent and athletic frame that moved very well all over the field. Ball is very quick for his age with times in the mid to low .7s. He has the ability to be one of the best in his class and should definitely focus on the TOP 12 Camp this January.

Jackson Worthen has some of the best form in the country and is close to greatness. Very excited to see him lock down his consistency and continuing to grow. Quiet and he listens really well.

Robert McCrory is a big framed Long Snapper with quick hands that can get the  ball in the low .8s.

Zachary Pitsenberger was impressive in the way he handled pressure and moved on his feet.

Jesse Smith was one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class with accurate snaps in the mid to low .8s.

Recap of the IL Spring Camp (4/2)

ChicagoRubio Long Snapping traveled to IL  on April 2nd for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from MO, IN, OH, PA, WI, MI, NJ, IA, MS, CA, KY, AL & IL to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Noah Rodriguez-Trammel (CA, ’17)! Noah came all the way out from CA and truly made the trip count. He is a massive Long Snapper that can pass an eyeball test quickly and hits in The Rubio Zone all the time. Very accurate Long Snapper with good speed that handles pressure well. Winning is becoming common for Noah as he also recently won a camp in CA!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Riley John

Riley John

Riley John was the top 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He was snapping in the high to mid .7s all day and has gradually improved every single time I see him at a camp. He is going to be a very good pickup for a college. I really like his attitude and he is snapping a college ball right now.

  • Phillip Thomas looked good in IL. Thick and strong Long Snapper with great form and a very smooth ball. The more he trusts his form and just lets the ball fly, he will be better in the long run.

  • Ben Dillion was snapping some good heat in IL. Form is good and he has upside.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Joe Calcagno

Joe Calcagno was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He is a large, strong Long Snapper with great form and lots of power. Ball can get into the high .6s and his hands are very quick. Calcagno is looking very solid and everyone should keep an eye on him at XXVIII in May.

  • Shiloh Mast uses his whole body very well and can catch a groove.
  • Marshall Coluzzi continues to be on the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in his class.

  • Dylan Castro is flat out smooth and fun to watch snap. Great ball
  • Cole Stewart will be a completely dominant Rubio Long Snapper when he explodes at the beginning of the process instead of gliding into it. Kid is going to be excellent.
  • Matt Baldeck can be one of the best in his class if he just gets set. Ball is VERY powerful.
  • John Davis looked impressive and is definitely showing he can snap at the next level.
