Rubio Long Snapping at College Camps

Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer of Chris Sailer Kicking will NOT be running any college specialist camps during the summer of 2017.  The NCAA has passed a new rule (April 2017) that prohibits us from coaching at these camps.   The SEC, PAC-12,  BIG 12, etc. have informed us that it would be against NCAA rules to hire us, or anyone else that attempts to do what we do, as they have in the past. 

Most University specialist camps will proceed as usual, but will simply be run by the college football staffs themselves.  No outside coaches will be allowed to help out and if they do, they and the school will be under NCAA penalty.

We still encourage attendance at these camps for 2018 prospects.  However, as always we caution you as to how many you choose to attend.  We recommend 3-5 college camps total.  It is important that you are always fresh and healthy at these camps.  Never snap on back to back days, especially with the travel involved.  Remember, word of mouth will spread very quickly amongst coaches.  Three to five strong performances will go a long way.  One poor performance will spread even quicker.

Rest assured, Sailer and I will be in communication with nearly every program in the nation. College coaches will know who the top Rubio and Sailer prospects are, well before the camps.  Having said that, be sure to attend college camps that match your athletic and academic abilities. Best of luck and be sure to keep us posted on your experiences and performances.

P.S. this does mean my June is opened up a bit and I will be having private lessons. For more information, please email Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com sooner than later as many days have already been locked down.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter was the top overall seed in the finals and was about one inch away from winning the whole thing. He was was snapping with great confidence and he was beyond solid all day long in GA. Kennesaw St. is getting a very good Long Snapper and a great person.

David Demeter looked very good in GA. Kid is a pure athlete that will definitely be a factor on punt coverage in college. Very impressed with his footwork and overall drive. Form is solid and he snaps a quick ball. Good attitude on Demeter

Connor Finnicum did well in GA with his good size and solid form. Ball is accurate and he has the ability to snap in the .7s. Very good upside on size and consistency.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley was the overall speed champion of the camp and looked great throughout the day. Excellent frame and he is a true athlete. Ball is crisp and as pure as anyone in the country. He has no problem hitting sub .75 regularly and he is ready for college now.

Jack Hadley came down from NJ with his large, strong frame and was easily one of the most dominant Long Snappers in attendance. Ball is very smooth and on target. Extremely accurate Long Snapper with excellent upside and attitude.

Cade Long was on fire in GA and left absolutely no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Ball is clean and he has put on some good weight over the last couple of months. Easily one of the most consistent and accurate Long Snappers in his class.

Clay James came up from Florida and left no doubt he was on a mission to show his dominance. He was snapping with a purpose and I loved watching him all day. Body is thickening up very well and he was inches away from being crowned champion. Great attitude and always improving.

Bryce Bouwens was accurate and consistent with good upside in GA. Body is thick and he is strong. We he snaps with full power and gets his eyes all the way through, he can dominate.

Dillon Hayes is one of the most accurate Long Snappers in his class and can handle pressure as well as anyone else in the country. As he continues to gain strength, he will dominate his class.

Maddie Golden has a very solid quick snap motion with a powerful ball. Love to see focus on consistency of speed to improve his ranking. Works hard and he is always improving.

Evan Dvorchik has good size for a Long Snapper and he can snap the ball into the low .7s and even high .6s when he is on. The more athletic he becomes, the higher he will move up the rankings. Great attitude and he works yards.

Trey Corley showed great promise at the camp in GA. Body is excellent and the potential for Corley is off the charts. Speeding up his hands will make his ball quicker out of the gate and increase the overall speed of his ball.

Payton Dunagan has incredible flexibility and hovers right in the middle of the .7s. His athleticism is solid and he is always improving.

TJ Harvey came out and had a great day in GA. Ball is smooth and powerful. Very fast Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s. Excellent attitude.

Notables: Camren Wood, Bailey Williams, Collin Springer, Brennen Milliron, Jon Eric Kirkland

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Quentin Skinner

Quentin Skinner is a Long Snapper with great size and power that can hit in the .6s at 15 yards. He could snap in college right now with his frame and accuracy. Looking down his consistency and dominating a camp is the last step for Skinner.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has extremely minimal wasted movement. Lefty that is absolutely incredible when his spiral is on and tight.

JC Vega is a physically fit Long Snapper that can bring a ton of heat on the ball. Moves well on his feet and is quick with his hands. Very good potential on Vega

Christian Johnstone is a tall, athletic Long Snapper that is right on the cusp of greatness. He can hit in the .7s and looks to dominate VEGAS 30 this May. Keep a very close eye on Johnstone.

Brendan Beattie has an extremely fast and powerful ball that rips back to the punter. Ball is accurate and consistent. Locking down his spiral will push him way up the rankings.

Cade DeGraw made it to the finals and snapped a great ball throughout the day in GA. He showed great accuracy and consistency. Upside is solid.

William Wagner is a thick and strong Long Snapper that snaps a powerful ball. He did really well during the speed competition and was impressive.

Notables: Luke Payne, Brandon Hurst, Griffin Kaye

TOP 2020 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Recap of the AZ Spring Camp (4/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to AZ on April 9, 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 Illinois on April 23 and Georgia on April 30th. The Georgia Camp will wrap up the Spring regional camp schedule and lead right in to Vegas 30 on May 13-14. 

This was the fifth 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 AZ, TX, ID, NM, CO, CA, NE, NV all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping. 

Champion Ross Reiter with Staff Members John Finch and Matt Wigley

The overall camp champion was Ross Reiter! Ross completely dominated the entire day and became the first Rubio Long Snapper to win the speed and RSI portions of any regional camp! He broke the RSI record with an astonishing 65.22! Reiter is a machine and colleges should look at him for his snapping ability and, more importantly, his work ethic and personality. He will be an asset on and off the field for a college coach. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

The finalists, six Long Snappers with the top RSI’s, featured Ross Reiter, Wyatt Rech, A.J. Laux, Austin Riggs, Dustin Inness, and Ethan Hudak. 

Top 2017/JUCO Long Snappers

CJ Shrimpf

CJ Schrimpf is a thick snapper from AZ and snapped the ball well all day. He was easily one of the most confident snappers at the camp and could potentially compete for a starting spot at the next level. 

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Austin Riggs

Austin Riggs might have the most upside of any long snapper in the Class of 2018. He has a tremendous frame and snaps a consistent smooth ball. He isn’t far off from shooting up the rankings in his class and I think he should compete for a Top 12 invite at Vegas 30 in May.

Morgan White is a powerful snapper that will pass any eyeball test for college coaches. He nearly won the speed competition in AZ and was consistently snapping the ball in the high .6s as the day progressed. 

Derek Hahn was one of the more accurate and all around consistent snappers at the camp. He has tremendous form and the work he’s put in privately with Rubio Long Snapping instructor Gabe Miller really showed.

Hunter Burson is a smooth and consistent Long Snapper with good upside. Body is strong with room to grow and he is smart. Great kid.

Notables: J.J. Lord, Wyatt Rech

Top 2019 Long Snappers:

Ethan Hudak

Ethan Hudak stood out as the top 2019 snapper at the AZ camp. He was extremely consistent all day long and advanced to the finals of both the speed and RSI portions of the afternoon. Tremendous upside.

Notables: Dustin Inness, John Farris

Top 2020 and Beyond Long Snappers

AJ Laux

A.J. Laux already looks the part of a college snapper. He has an outstanding frame that college coaches will love and when he get’s hot he’s tough to beat. He snaps with tremendous confidence for someone his age.

Champion Dillon Hayes

Long Snappers from TX, AR, OK, LA, CT, ID, IL, MS, KS all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Dillon Hayes! Dillon is coming off several days of private lessons in Idaho and you can tell it definitely paid off. He was smooth, accurate, VERY consistent and handles pressure like, well, a champion. This is his second victory in a row as Dillon also was crowned the champion of VEGAS XXIX!  His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

You can see the full finals (Jax Wilson, Karsten Battles, Dillon Hayes, Jake Pagel, Trevor Fleming, Chris Clore) below ….

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Jake Pagel

Jake Pagel left no doubt he is just a flat out stud when snapping the ball. His hands are some of the quickest I have seen and it shows with the speed of his ball as it is rarely above .75. He will do great at Texas A&M.

Drew Wise was on fire throughout the day as he prepares to head to Missouri in the summer. Body is big and he throws a ton of heat on the ball. Love the direction he is headed and he is always improving.

Noah Caldwell looked very solid. Body is thicker and he was snapping with good power. Form is good and his hands are like rockets.

Caleb Cantrell is headed to Wyoming and he left no doubt he can succeed there with his quick hands and great form. Love his attitude.

Chris Clore is a large Long Snapper with tons of intelligence and great form. When he is reaching back all the way and snapping hard, there are few that are better.

Trevor Fleming made it to the finals and got at the right time. Good form and I like his attitude. Moved well on his feet and handles pressure well. Well done to Grambling State getting Trevor.

Notables: Pierce Warn, Andrew Morrison, Dillon Hall

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles had a great day in TX. He is big, powerful and snaps a great ball back to the punter. Almost ended up winning the whole thing and I don’t think it will be long until he claims a championship of his own. Lots of upside and he just keeps getting better.

Zach Edwards is one of the smoothest and most consistent Long Snappers in his class. Major athlete and he just keeps getting better. Hands are rockets and the ball is at college level speed right now!

John Raines was throwing incredible heat all day in TX. Form is good and he is using his whole body really well. Love his improvement and if he can get his spiral locked down at VEGAS 30 in May, he could easily be a TOP 12 Camp member.

Evan Gibson continues to improve and impress me. Moving well on his feet and snapping with confidence. The harder he snaps, the better he does. Great attitude and upside.

Tre Rubio had a great camp and has done an incredible job of improving over the years. Ball is VERY smooth  and extremely catchable. Tight spiral and his form is almost perfect.

Jax Wilson had the highest RSI score of the camp and is absolutely dripping with potential. MASSIVE human being that could easily find himself on a college roster for Long Snapping if he focuses on his form and being more consistent. Incredible talent.

Cole Voyles is long, lean and dripping with potential. I love the upside on this kid from TX. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Tyler Springer threw some great snaps throughout the day and was always snapping sub .75. He definitely has the ability to snap at the next level and can be a TOP 12 member with some more accuracy.

Turner Pallisard is a strong Long Snapper that practically looks like a college tight end right now. Potential is off the charts and his consistency will be the thing that makes or breaks him at VEGAS 30.

Notables: Brayden Adams, Grayson Broussard, Jack Fisher, Justin Hutyra, Ryan Rey, Chris Stoneking,

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Hayden Hood

Hayden Hood was exceptional all day in TX. His snaps were absolutely screaming back to the punter and the kid moves well on his feet. Smoothing out his snapping motion will help in the long run but he is already on his way to greatness.

Luke Rizzo is coming along very nicely. He is thick and strong with quick hands. he can really whip the ball back to the punter. His snaps are consistently in the .7s and just getting faster. Great upside on Rizzo.

Samuel Wiesbrook has a lot of potential on his very long body. Has a frame that could easily put on 50 lbs over the next couple of years. His snaps are quick and he has tons of upside.

Braedy Wilson showed me some great movement on his feet and consistent snaps. Putting on some size will be huge for him as we get ready for VEGAS 30 and beyond.

Jay Dempsey has a nice frame, quick hands and moves well on his feet. Athletic with tons of potential.

Landon Sleeper has good form, a powerful body and a good attitude. Hard worker that will make a college coach happy in the long run

Notables: John Farris, Nate McCormack, David Medrano, Max Murry, Chad Wolf

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS AND BEYOND…

Blake Hooker

Blake Hooker looked VERY solid in TX. He was snapping with confidence and his ball was zipping back to the punter. Never even saw him snap a ball above .80 all day. Great day for Hooker.

Eli Chism looks like he has grown a foot and put on some good weight. Definitely paying off with his snapping as this was the best I have seen him do at a camp. Great upside.

Oden Pierce is a 2021 Long Snapper with good length and lots of upside. Impressive throughout the day.

Haydon Wiginton continues to impress  me. He will be as good as he wants to be with his Long Snapping.

Phillip Bourque has good form, a great attitude and a thick body. He is always improving.

VEGAS XXIX RSI Scores

Here, in alphabetical order, are the RSI scores from VEGAS XXIX! The top 12 scorers (found in bold below) advanced to the finals.

All Long Snappers were tested on The Rubio Target. Each Long Snapper was tested on 12 punt snaps where they had three normal snaps, three blocking left, three blocking right, three speed punt snaps (running in from the side and have three seconds to get the ball off once their feet are set) and 12 pat snaps where they had three normal snaps, three blocking left, three blocking right, three speed punt snaps (running in from the side and have three seconds to get the ball off once their feet are set). Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI (Rubio Standard Index): The RSI is the score divided by the average speed on The Rubio Target. You may obtain 2 bonus points for an average of .75-.79, 2 more bonus points for an average of .70-.74 and an additional 2 more bonus points if you average below .70.

NEW Prep Camp Format!

John Finch

You asked for it and you got it! Rubio Long Snapping will be holding THREE VEGAS XXIX PREP CAMPS on January 8th, 2016. The three locations will be California, Texas and Georgia.

Jeff Abraham

The PREP CAMPS will be only four hours long, are half the cost, and will be run as an EXACT replica of what a Long Snapper will be seeing on Sunday, January 15th at VEGAS XXIX.

These camps are the best way to get a Long Snapper fully prepared mentally and physically for what they will experience at VEGAS XXIX.

Rubio will be running the California camp, Senior Staff member John Finch will be running the Texas camp and Senior Staff member Jeff Abraham will be in charge of the Georgia camp.

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.

Recap of the TX Fall Camp (12/4/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on December 4th, 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 TX, LA, AR, OK, NM, IL, MS, MI, AL & KS all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

CHAMPION JAKE PAGEL!!!

CHAMPION JAKE PAGEL!!!

The overall camp champion was Jake Pagel. Pagel left no doubt that he is easily one of the top Long Snappers in the country. His ball is VERY fast and he can catch a serious groove to dominate. He was one of only about two Long Snappers that has been crowned champion by winning BOTH the speed and accuracy competition. His victory in TX earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between Jake Pagel and John Raines below…

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be AZ (12/11) and GA (12/18)

Top 2017 Long Snappers

drew-wise6289

Drew Wise

Drew Wise was on fire all day long and was actually my horse to win the whole thing. His snaps are very fast and tight. Ball just sticks to the punter’s hands when he catches a snap from Drew. He has excellent size and a tremendous attitude. College coaches should take a very hard look at Drew!

Noah Caldwell looked impressive in TX. Snaps were solid and had good speed. I really liked how smooth and relaxed he was throughout all the day.

John Davis moved well on his feet and was really accurate with his snaps all day. Locking down his spiral and snapping full speed puts him over the top.

Chris Clore is really getting his body in great shop and snapping with good speed and confidence. Locking down his spiral will move him way up.

Jarrod Jacobson has a great frame and form. Uses his body well and gets very good speed on the ball

Caleb Cantrell snaps well under pressure and is very accurate!

Steven Taylor did really well in TX. Ball is VERY smooth and he can easily be one of the most accurate Long Snappers in the country. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Taylor go very far in the finals at VEGAS XXIX.

Hunter Thiem is a very raw Long Snapper with a lot of potential. He moves well on his feet and is built well.

Notables: Justyce Hankins and Joe Smith

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Zach Edwards

Zach Edwards

Zach Edwards was tremendous out in TX. Kid is a PURE athlete that might have the fastest snaps in the country. Zach’s snaps absolutely rocket back to the punter to the point of almost looking fake. He could take the top spot in the country at VEGAS XXIX.

Ron Gaines was very solid in TX. Large Long Snapper with footwork that is definitely improving. Love to see him focus on continuing to improve his athleticism and making sure he is just a tad quicker out of the gate to speed up the overall snap speed.

John Raines was great all day. Looked very polished and was snapping with a good amount of confidence. Made it to the finals and could have easily taken home the championship.

Karsten Battles is absolutely dripping with potential and could easily be one of the top kids in his class. Great frame and he can rip the ball back to the punter. Moves well on his feet. This kid literally did not miss getting points on The Rubio Target….INCREDIBLE!!!

Evan Gibson looked very solid in TX. He is a really accurate Long Snapper that can catch a groove. Consistent and smooth.

Tre Rubio is coming along nicely and is always improving. Rubio (no relation) has some very quick hands that really get the ball out of the gate well.

Grayson Yeager is dripping with potential and could easily fight for a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS XXIX. Great frame and he snaps a smooth ball.

Chandler Moses is a strong Long Snapper with great upside. Raw and can be a top kid in his class…..easily. Will be fun to watch him compete at VEGAS XXIX.

Stephen Elmore handles pressure really well and has solid accuracy.

Notables: Hunter Burson, Dillon Hayes, Cameron Harris, Evan Jennings, Turner Pallissard, Tyler Springer,

Top 2019 Long Snappers

hayden-hood7288

Hayden Hood

Hayden Hood left no doubt he was the best 2019 Long Snapper at the TX camp. He moves really well on his feet and is a true athlete. He can really rip the ball back to the punter with times in the low .7s at times. Consistency of speed will be a major thing I am looking for at VEGAS XXIX.

Luke Rizzo is an athletic Long Snapper with good, raw power. Snapping with confidence will make him dominate at VEGAS XXIX.

Landon Sleeper is a strong and consistent Long Snapper with good potential and a great attitude.

Notables: Chad Wolf, Max Murry, Izeya Floyd, John Farris, Ross Arroyo

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….

Ethan Wells

Ethan Wells

Ethan Wells was excellent all day in TX. He is a very consistent Long Snapper with great explosion and the ability to get the ball in the low .80s. I really like his attitude and the way he snaps the ball. Ethan could easily take the top spot in his class with a good performance at VEGAS XXIX.

Blake Hooker has great consistency and I like his attitude. Strength and power will help him a ton at VEGAS XXIX and beyond.

Phillip Bourque looked good with solid consistency and nice form.

Haydon Wiginton has great form for his age and I like the length of his frame.

JT Sleeper is big, powerful and oozing with potential.

Zachary Clore is overflowing with potential. He is built VERY long and already has some great form. Keep an eye out for Clore over the next couple of years.

What Do You Get at a Rubio Long Snapping Camp?

INSTRUCTION – There is simply no doubt that you will receive the best instruction in the country at a Rubio Long Snapping camp. It is unprecedented and known by college and NFL coaches throughout the country. When you sign up for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, you get perfection. I am there, my senior staff is there, on time and we don’t leave early.

EXPOSURE – Every camp that Rubio Long Snapping run offers the most exposure possible for Long Snappers. I bombard several avenues to make sure my Long Snappers are visible to all. The Rubio Long Snapping YouTube Channel has over 970,000 views (this is all just for Long Snapper….NO kickers are on the page). RubiosBlog.com has been viewed well over 1,000,000 times. @TheChrisRubio on Twitter has over 5,750 followers (many of which are coaches) and the Rubio Long Snapping Facebook Page has over 5,600 followers (many of which are coaches) and stories in publications all over the world make Rubio Long Snapping the one stop shop for the most exposure in the country.

PLAYER PROFILE PAGE – As soon as you perform in a camp in the fall (or after) of your freshman year, you get a PLAYER PROFILE PAGE….for free! This player profile page is controlled by me and it can have any information you wanted added to it at anytime. You can use it for your recruiting purposes throughout high school.

RANKINGS – As soon as you perform in a camp in the fall (or after) of your freshman year, you get a ranking. I don’t rank off a target. I don’t rank off a formula. That would be ignorant. I rank off of THIS blog that describes what makes a Long Snapper great. That ranking can be adjusted anytime I see you live. Coaches look to these rankings religiously in their recruiting of Long Snappers.

YOUTUBE VIDEO – At every single Rubio Long Snapping camp you attend, you will be filmed for a YouTube video. Those videos will be placed on your free player profile page. You can use the video at your own discretion. It is yours and there is no extra charge for this service.

FILM SESSION – At Rubio Long Snapping camps, I will go in with you to a classroom and review the morning sessions. Long Snappers attend but I really want the parents/guardians to attend as well since this is when a majority of the learning will take place.

RECRUITING SEMINAR – At Rubio Long Snapping camp, Chris Sailer and I run an hour long recruiting seminar where we hit on some key topics and always open it up to a Q&A session for the specialists and parents. You will not leave without all your questions answered.

PROVEN SUCCESS – Dont’ believe me? See what others have to say HERE

RUBIO LONG SNAPPING SHIRT – You know, to wear at prom and such:)

Trust me when I tell you, I could keep this list going and going and going. Things like Friendship, Confidence, Humor are just some immediate things that pop into my head….see you soon! Remember, Not only on the field, but off. I am not your coach. I am your Rubio and I will be there for you.

You MUST be invited to the TOP GUN camp by performing well at one of the regional camps prior to the TOP GUN Camp. Bottom line, you will have to do well at one of the camps, that our staff  is in attendance at, to pick up an invite from myself and/or one of my senior instructors.

National Signing Day

Cole Mazza Signing

Rubio Long Snapper Cole Mazza signing with Alabama

Tomorrow, high school football players around the country will be signing on the dotted line to play for their respective schools. It is a great time of the year for all involved. It is Signing Day. It is covered by major sports affiliates and it begins the process of which college will dominate tomorrow with the stellar high school athletes of today.

With all the hoopla, comes questions….let me clear some things up for everyone. These are all from questions I have received over the years. Here you go and be sure to reference back to THIS blog I wrote about the difference between a full ride, a preferred walk-on and a standard walk-on:

Is Signing Day the only day an athlete can sign with a college? 
Absolutely not. It is just the first official day for the seniors to make their commitment official. A scholarship athlete can sign anytime on or after that day. You can literally sign the day you get on campus if you are a late pick-up for a school. The whole Signing Day is just a lot of pomp and circumstance that the media has turned it into an event.

Do Preferred Walk-Ons sign on Signing Day?
No, they do not officially sign anything. However, many schools and parents like to have a simple ceremony that represents signing. A preferred walk-on, although verbally committed to a school is NOT locked into that respective school. They have the option to change their mind to another school at any point if a scholarship comes their way. Not exactly the most kosher thing to do to a coach/program but they would most likely understand. I look at it like this, an athlete not taking a scholarship would be similar to a person not taking a free car and opting to pay for the same car.

If I sign with a college on scholarship, can I adjust after?
Sure, BUT you will lose a year of eligibility. Once you sign, you are done. Don’t even think about transferring as it rarely works out and is an uphill battle to say the least. Think about it, why would a coach want an athlete that could not fit in at their first stop? A transfer athlete always brings up red flags…why is it going to work this time, why did he not get along with players and coaches at the first school, it is a homesick issue, is he a problem case, schooling? All are questions that a new coach is going to want to know about you. Bottom line, make your decision and stick with it.

How do the schools get the athletes signatures? 
Most athletes sign in the early morning and then fax them in to their new home (school).

Why have a Signing Day? 
It is the day your verbal commitment becomes official.

Can a junior that is offered a scholarship sign early?
Nope. They must wait just like the others within his graduating class. All of this waiting around gives way to all the committing and de-committing which coaches and sports writers absolutely love (dripping with sarcasm).

Is it true that scholarships have to be renewed every year by the school?
Yes. This is one of those things that not a lot of people know about but it is true. Every single year, the staff has to renew your scholarship for the next year. Therefore, if you are not producing as an athlete, student or person, your scholarship can not be renewed. It is not very common for it to happen, but I have witnessed it occur. Usually, a social issue is the final straw in saying bye bye to your education being paid for by the school.

What can go wrong with the Signing Day process?
Several things and most involve the fax machine. If the exact form is not sent in signed properly, the deal is not sealed. Many schools have lost an athlete because the Letter of Intent was faxed upside down, backwards or just not clear. Then, when they tell the student-athlete to do it again, said athlete often takes it as an omen that it wasn’t meant to be and poof! a new school is chosen. Trust me, it does happen.

All in all, Signing Day is a great thing that should be cherished by all but definitely don’t feel as though it is the end all be all. No matter when you sign, you are still going to be on full scholarship with your school paid for, and that is the most important thing.

Advice to Incoming Freshman from College Long Snappers

I offer up a ton of advice on this blog, my Twitter, my Facebook, through texts, e-mails and my camps. In my opinion, it is all good.

But, sometimes, the youth would like to hear from others as close to their own age as possible. No problem.

I asked several Rubio Long Snappers, who have just finished their first collegiate season of football, a simple question, “What is one bit of advice you would give to an incoming freshman Long Snapper now that you have essentially wrapped up your first year?

Here are their responses….

“Earn the respect of non specialists by working hard in the weight room and conditioning so they don’t just stereotype you as being just a “longsnapper”. Will go a long way with the coaches and put you a step ahead of the guy in front of you if there is one.” Conor Fry – North Carolina

“Never be satisfied. Although you may not come in and be the starter the first day you step on campus, once you earn that starting spot on the team you cannot get complacent. If you get complacent, somebody will catch up to you. While you are resting, someone else is getting better. Are you working? Or are you resting?” Reid Ferguson – LSU

“Have fun with it, enjoy the experience. If you redshirt embrace it, and get better. Make sure you are healthy and physically fit coming into your first year. The weight room and running will be difficult, so make sure you are prepared, and finally make sure to always be on time, which is 10 minutes early. That’s the best advice I can give, really kids just got to enjoy the gift they have been given.” Nolan Dowling – Western Kentucky

“Come in CONFIDENT, not cocky. They need to remember that they are a freshman again, no one cares that you were number 1 in the nation or a 5 star snapper. Although they should because they couldn’t do it. And don’t expect special treatment from coaches anymore. Once you step on that field you’re just another player, not someone they have to impress anymore.” Jake Abraham – Georgia Southern

“Realize that the strength staff is on your side. They will make fun of your athleticism and your position at first just keep working hard and keep your confidence up and they will come around. Also, to Enjoy the Process. The off season workouts, summer lifts, practices, and season are really hard and tiring. Find your own way to make them fun. Lastly, dont think of what you’re losing out on (parties & junk) but think about how much you’re gaining. (Discipline & work ethic)” John DePalma – West Virginia

“Be prepared for anything! Coaches will go to extreme lengths just to see how mentally tough a snapper is.  You’re gonna have bad days or a bad snap every now and then; it is how you respond to adversity that matters.  If coach is chewing you out and up in your face just nod yes sir and move on to the next snap.  Mental toughness is key!” Steven Romero – New Mexico

Have a short memory.  If you have a bad snap, coaches are going to get on you for it but you need to come back and respond.Duke Moran – CAL

Listen to the guys who currently share your position on the team. You may think you know all there is about physically snapping, but being a snapper entails much more than just throwing the ball between your legs (as you know). The mental aspect is more than half the game, and by creating a comfortability level with the men you share all your time with is essential to your success. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others for help, because in reality, the people you want to ask were all freshman at one point and have taken your path before. They don’t care how good you were in high school, they want you to excel at the collegiate level and to benefit the team in all possible ways.” Joe Marvin – Penn St. 

For me one thing I never did was really practice snapping on a command and I really struggled with that coming into camp. So if I was going to give advice going into your first year for a long snapper I would say to be able to snap on a command along with on your own. Be able to snap out of your comfort zone for sure.Matt Cincotta – Marshall

You have to come in with a mindset that you are the best but practice like you are second string and fighting for a job. Football has a lot of distractions but the reason you are there is to get your education first. Basically this is something you have never experienced so you have to do something you have never done before.Daniel LaMontagne – Furman

Make a great first impression on your coaches, teammates, and professors. Also to enjoy and soak it all in because it’ll fly by before you know it.Scott Daly – Notre Dame

Not everything is gonna go exactly how you planned out in your head but just keep grinding, it’ll be worth it in the end.” William Eads – Middle Tennessee

GO TO CLASS!!! If you don’t go, YOU FAIL! Also learn how to manage your time. Time management is key for a college football player, especially of you make the travel squad. Study, study, study. If your grades are not up to par the coaches will leave you at home, it happened to a few guys here.Ryan Eustace – Arkansas St.

Always stay warm and make sure you’re paying attention to the game because standing on the sidelines will cause your legs to get cold, and there are a lot of distractionsRyan DiSalvo – San Jose St.

Come to the practice, lift, or run with an intense intrinsic attitude to improve yourself because it so easy to just go through the motions being that specialists are sort of dismissed by the coaching staff at times.” Jeff Overbaugh – San Diego St. 

“The most important thing to remember as a freshman long snapper on a college team is to have fun. Seriously, it sounds cheesy but taking this sport too seriously will be the death of you. You have worked so hard to get to where you are, and now that you’re here it’s important to take a step back and appreciate what you’re a part of. I wish all of you the best of luck. You have accomplished something few people can, and you should be beyond proud.Sodie Orr – Cal Poly SLO

You’ve made it to college however you have not arrived. You must work just as hard as you did making it to where you are now.Greg Hohenstein – Bowling Green
