Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on March 12th, 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!

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Seattle on March 19th, Texas on March 26th, Arizona and New Jersey on April 9th, April 23 in Illinois and April 30th in Georgia.

This was the second 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

Long Snappers from TN, NC, NY, PA, GA, OH, SC, FL, VA, MO, IN, MA & NJ all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

Drew Little

The overall camp champion was Drew Little (NC, ’19). Little was the first Long Snapper chosen to the TOP 12 Camp at VEGAS XXIX and he hasn’t let up one bit since that weekend. He is a very consistent Long Snapper with great form, quick hands and handles pressure extremely well. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

You can see the full finals below….

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall did really well and was snapping an extremely consistent ball. Each snap, one after the other, looked exactly the same. Accuracy is on point and Louisville got a good one in Mitch.

Austin Reeves was an absolute machine out in NC. Ball is tight, he looked confident and his form is darn near perfect. Great kid and Long Snapper.

Cooper Short had his best day as a Rubio Long Snapper. The new Presbyterian commit was on fire snapping with good speed and great power throughout the day. You can tell Cooper has been working!

Ryan Culbertson was his usual consistent and accurate self. He is like a pitching machine with each snap being the same over and over again.

Erik Lawson is a large man with great power. Ball came humming off his fingers and was one of the fastest Long Snappers in attendance.

Notables: Ben Shirley

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley left no doubt he is the best Long Snapper in the country. His ball is quick and powerful while his form has no wasted movement. Kid is a true athlete and will be an easy choice for a college to scholarship.

Jack Hadley had an incredible day and was snapping with raw power in NC. He is a large man, has good form and listens well. When he is on, he is EASILY one of the best in the country.

Maddie Golden was snapping fast pearls all day. His snaps were humming and I even caught him a couple times in the .6s. Form is excellent and he snaps well under pressure.

Noah Turner is thick, strong and snaps a good ball. Always improving and he has the size to stop a defender.

The Ortiz Brothers

Antonio Ortiz was a newcomer that left no doubt he could, easily, be one of the top Long Snappers in the country. Made it all the way to the finals on his first camp and might have the most potential of anyone in the country besides his bother (see below).

Marco Ortiz was one of the most dominant newcomers I have come across in about ten years. The potential on Marco and Antonio is so off the charts, it is unbelievable. They are big, the can run and they are very smooth. The sky is the limit for these two.

Kent Vines was smooth, accurate and has very good size. Flat out solid Long Snapper. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Michael Vojvodich was very solid all day in NC. He has great size, he can move on his feet and he is consistent with his speed. Great upside on Michael.

Trey Gable had a great day in NC and was impressive with his snaps. I LOVE his attitude and the kid can move on his feet.

Max Durschlag was snapping some heat in NC and made it quite clear he could earn a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS 30.

Matt Aloni showed me some good things throughout the day. Very accurate and consistent Long Snapper.

Brock Assel is large, snaps a great ball and is consistent. Some more speed on the ball and his feet will be huge for him come VEGAS 30!

Notables: Hunter Becker, Zach Chamblee, Bailey Williams, Collin Springer, Reed Harper, Marshall Eury, Sam DeLuke,

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Christian Johnstone

Alex Harper was very consistent and accurate throughout the day. Listens well and has good upside.

Tripp Heath was snapping a powerful ball throughout the day and had some quick hands.

Notables: Graham Finklea, Garrett Karres, Luke Payne, Grayson Owens

Will Albright was very good all day in NC. Snaps a nice ball that can hit in the .8s with his quick hands.

Ethan Roberts showed solid consistency throughout the day in NC.

Stewart Jones is a 2021 Long Snapper that was impressive with his handling of pressure.

Recap of the GA Fall Camp (12/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on December 18th, 2016 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from MS, AL, VA, GA, LA, SC, TN, FL, NC, IL, MI, IN, OH, MO, SC, KY & Canada all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.
The overall camp champion was Jacob Potter. Potter was excellent all day. His hands were like rockets as his ball jumped out of the gate on all snaps. Accuracy was off the charts and he was very calm and collected when he was snapping throughout the finals. He was definitely snapping with a ton of confidence and I loved watching him all day. His victory in GA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between Jacob Potter and Brock Assel below.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Prep Camps in CA, TX & GA on January 8th followed by the granddaddy of them all, VEGAS XXIX on January 13-15!

Top 2017 Long Snappers
Jacob Potter was the top 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was smooth, powerful and snapping with confidence. Ball moves quickly and jumps out of the gate on a mission. Body is strong and he has no problem getting the ball under .75. Impressive improvement on Potter.

Chandler Moody really caught my eye several times in GA. Ball is quick and he can hit under .7 when he catches a groove. I like his attitude and he has a frame that can pack on about another 40. Moody could be the sleeper of the 2017 class. Keep a close eye on him.

Dillon Manning showed great improvement and is one of the stronger Long Snappers in his class. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and can move well on his feet. Quiet and determined Long Snapper that has some VERY quick hands.

Tuck Gill was impressive in GA. His body is thick and he has a nice spiral. Impressive use of his overall solid frame. Ball is accurate and consistent.

Dominic Brocato made it deep into the finals and snaps with confidence. Coming along very nicely and always improving.

Notables: Austin Gean, Jacob Helton, Gio Miller, Ben Shirley

Top 2018 Long Snappers
Oscar Shadley was the best overall Long Snapper in this class. He is an incredible athlete and snaps one of the most consistent hard balls I have felt in some time. He is CONSISTENTLY at .68 and on target. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he does. The potential on Shadley is off the charts and he could be a tremendous Long Snapper in college.

Roen McCullough had a solid day in GA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps a smooth, powerful ball. He has no problem hitting sub .70 and has good accuracy. Moves well on his feet and snaps with a good attitude. Massive upside.

Cade Long looked great in GA. Ball is so clean and crisp every single time to the punter. Cade makes everything look effortless as he continuously snaps the ball back to the punter. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes in his class.

AJ Covan continues to impress me with his accuracy and consistency with his snaps. Notable improvement on his athleticism and speed. Covan is focused and dialed in for VEGAS XXIX and could EASILY win it.

Evan Dvorchik was beyond solid in GA. I saw him recently in WA and he was night and day better this time around. He is snapping with a ton of confidence as his ball hits under .77 consistently. Body is good and I love his attitude.

Jarrett Key was smooth and accurate. Quiet Long Snapper that is always in the mix of dominance. The more he snaps with confidence, the better he does in the long run. VERY good attitude that a coach will love in the coming years.

Brock Assel made it all the way to the finals and could have easily won the whole thing. His accuracy and consistency are off the charts. Large man with decent athleticism for his frame. Great attitude and definitely improving. Should do really well at VEGAS XXIX.

Parker Lefton looked good in GA. Thick bodied with quick hands and a consistent snap in the high .7s.

Camren Wood was VERY impressive in GA. Easily the best day he has had with Rubio Long Snapping. He is doing an excellent job of improving. Over and over throughout the day, I was wooed by Camren and his snapping.

Jake Rudolph is a good athlete with solid upside. When he is on, he is really on and has excellent athleticism.

Notables: Aidan Brock, Heath Crabtree, Dillon Hayes, Noah Hightower, Evan Jennings, Richard Landry, Brock Powers, Eli Spivey, Bailey Williams

Top 2019 Long Snappers
Quentin Skinner is a physically monstrous Long Snapper that is completely dominant and still hasn’t filled all of his potential yet. When it all clicks, Skinner could be one of the greatest Rubio Long Snappers of all time. His hands are quick and his ball is powerful. Strength is off the charts.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Great form and he is using all of his body well. He had some great snap times throughout the day and left no doubt he has really been working hard and smart. Great upside on Drew.

Christian Johnstone looked very solid in GA with his accurate and consistent snaps. Love his frame, his attitude and his upside. He could easily earn a roster spot at The TOP 12 Camp at VEGAS XXIX.

William Wagner came on strong at the end of the day in GA and left a very good taste in my mouth. Body is thick and he uses a good amount of his body. Keep an eye on him.

Chad Becker looked great in GA. His snaps get out of the gate very quickly and he has no problem getting the ball under .7. Upside on Becker is huge. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXIX.

Codey Bennett is a strong Long Snapper with quick hands and a consistent, accurate snap. He moved well on his feet and was impressive throughout the day in GA. He is definitely one to watch at VEGAS XXIX.

Mason Napper has a good frame and a smooth snap. Very good potential and I like his attitude. He has the ability to be the real deal in just a couple months. Napper might be the sleeper of his class.

JC Vega is an incredible athlete with excellent upside. Snaps speeds are good and bordering on great. Lots and lots of upside.

Zach Lassiter made it deep into the finals and could have walked away with the victory. Built long with a frame that will hold some good weight over the next couple of years. Handled pressure well.

Notables: Carson Crisp, Cade Degraw, Ford Hayes, Tripp Heath, Graham Leslie, Dylan McCardel, Cody Olszewski, Justin Wright

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….
Zane McCracken was by far the best 2020 Long Snapper in attendance and it wasn’t even close. Form is exceptional as he has been with Rubio Long Snapper for about five years! He can already snap in the .6s which is exceptional for his age. Zane is well above his age for talent level.

Jackson Worthen has great form and a solid attitude. Ball is quick and his overall use of his body is very solid for his age.

Will Benton was solid all day in GA. I like his attitude and the way he snaps the ball. Fine tuning his overall form and locking down his spiral will push him way up the rankings.

Eli Pyrz is a consistent Long Snapper with very quick hands. He moved well on his feet.

Kneeland Hibbett is a 2021 Long Snapper that was impressive for his first camp with Rubio Long Snapping. Good overall form and a solid attitude. He is already using his whole body well. Good upside.
