Recap of the TOP 12 Camp

The Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 Camp was on July 17-19, 2017 and featured, quite possibly, the most talented group of Long Snappers to ever come through the system. There was Long Snappers committed to school such as Virginia Tech, Colorado State, Air Force along with offers from Oregon, Marshall, you know what, it might be easier just to show you….

This TOP 12 camp was different from years past as 20 Long Snappers were chosen from the January Vegas Event, 20 were chosen from the May Vegas Event along with five wild cards. All of these terrific Long Snappers competed against one another to see who the actual TOP 12 would be on Wednesday. As if that wasn’t enough pressure, the whole thing was going to be filmed for a new web series called the TOP 12 Series!

So, we still had the annual belly flop contest with the kickers (I am choosing not to think about the outcome so we will move past it) and the night out on the town with the kids to see how they handle themselves socially. That was the same, but the exit interviews were different where we actually met with each Long Snapper and let them know right then and there if they had earned the TOP 12 gold shirt! You want to talk about stressful for them and myself.

If you are looking to see all of the photos put up by Nick Monaghan, I highly recommend checking out his website. He is the best in the business and took thousands of photos over the three day span to provide the most exposure for the Long Snappers.

Great shot by Nick Monaghan in the War Room during one of the exit interviews.

After all of the snapping, dinner, socializing, and interviews, the TOP 12 Long Snappers in the country were (in alphabetical order)…

Karsten Battles
Cade Long
Antonio Ortiz
Marco Ortiz
Roen McCullough
Kyle Petrucci
Gabriel Pugh
John Raines
Ross Reiter
Simon Samarzich
Oscar Shadley
Quentin Skinner

The overall camp champion was Oscar Shadley. The Virginia Tech commit left no doubt he was the top overall Long Snapper of the group with incredible athleticism. His ball seemed to get quicker and more powerful as the days progressed. No matter what was thrown at him, Shadley dominated.

Here is a detailed recap of each TOP 12 Long Snapper followed by a quick write up on all that attended as they are all deserving of recognition.

Karsten Battles – Thick, strong and powerful Long Snapper that locks in and rarely misses. Very detail oriented Long Snapper that is like a machine out on the field. He already holds several offers and will make any college coach happy over the next couple years.

Cade Long is one of the most efficient Long Snappers in the country. Rarely, and I mean very rarely, has a bad ball. Accuracy and consistency are his strengths. Body is getting bigger and stronger. Overall, a tremendous Long Snapper.

Antonio Ortiz – might have the most potential of any Long Snapper that has ever gone through Rubio Long Snapping. Antonio has an absolute tremendous frame and runs like wind. Type of Long Snapper that could play for the next twenty years. If he puts his mind to it, he could be the best to come out of Rubio Long Snapping.

Marco Ortiz – simply duplicate what I said for Antonio. Marco is a little less polished that Antonio at this point but still has just as much upside. Both are full easy scholarship picks and any coach would be lucky to have them.

Roen McCullough – Strong and powerful Long Snapper that can snap a ball right through the punter. Kid is a machine on the field and works like a horse to be the best. Handing pressure really well and love is attitude.

Kyle Petrucci – He continues to improve athletically and with his snapping. Still has some slight issues with getting his upper body all the way through but his overall size is so dominant, that it can be overlooked. When he really drives his upper body through, he can put the ball in the low .7s and right in The Rubio Zone. Smart Long Snapper with tons of upside.

Gabriel Pugh – a 2019 Long Snapper that has one of the most powerful snaps I have ever witnessed. His ball almost feels like a wet, heavy ball about to break your hands. Built like a college tight end and he still has two years left of high school. Upside for him is off the charts and I love his attitude.

John Raines – Quick hands and a very crisp ball that really flies out of his hands. Recent Ole Miss commit never stops improving and is always right in the finals but no one really ever notices. Excellent Long Snapper that is truly dedicated to his craft.

Ross Reiter – Great personality along with being a tremendous Long Snapper makes Reiter one of the best recruits of his class. Ball is beyond tight and always right on target. Body is improving by the second and he has one of the most crisp and precise balls you will ever encounter.

Simon Samarzich – extremely athletic 2019 Long Snapper that snaps a smooth and consistent ball. The more he works on his craft, the better he will be. Coming out of his shell with his snapping and his personality is making Simon a major recruit over the next couple of years.

Oscar Shadley – He left literally no doubt he is the top Long Snapper in the country. Incredibly impressed with how well he handles adversity and just gets better with more pressure. Ball is beyond fast with snap speeds under .65 and he just gets more accurate with the more snaps he takes.

Quentin Skinner – 2019 Long Snapper that could end up being the best to roll through Rubio Long Snapping. Extremely strong athlete that looks like a college linebacker and is as strong as one (already can bench 400 lbs!). I have watched Mad Dog snap in tons of camps and he was the best I have seen him this good. Just flat out awesome!

Rest of the best in alphabetical order…..

Ryan Aguilar – Athletic with tons of potential. Smoothing out the consistency will make him a sure fire recruit.

Matt Aloni – Thick bodied and smooth Long Snapper that can be the best in the upper east coast….easily.

Brock Assel – Air Force commit with tons of power and a solid attitude. Locking down his accuracy puts him at the top.

Brenden Bentley – Snapped a powerful ball with good consistency. Locking down his spiral and quickness will push him up the ladder.

Jac Casasante – One of the fastest Long Snappers with his ball and feet in the country.

Gabriel Cervantes – Long, pure athlete with tons of upside. Smoothing it all out will get him to the top.

AJ Covan – He might be the most accurate Long Snapper to ever go through Rubio Long Snapping. Made it to the finals and literally just doesn’t miss The Rubio Zone. If you are looking for pure accuracy, there is literally no one better.

Zach Drevno – Thick and strong Long Snapper that has improved a ton over the past year. Continuing to lead with his elbows with create more overall speed on the ball. Tremendous attitude.

Payton Dunagan – Incredibly flexible Long Snapper that hands the ball to the punter. Locking down his spiral will be huge for Payton.

Evan Dvorchik – Great competitor with a solid snap. The tighter his body gets and more athletic he becomes, the more of a full fledged recruit he becomes.

Zach Edwards – One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. Smooth and consistent. The more confidence he gets, the more dominant he becomes.

Ron Gaines – Massive Long Snapper with a smooth ball that has solid accuracy and consistency . Snapping with full power and increasing his athleticism makes him top dog.

Evan Gibson – He is improving drastically and is already one of the top Long Snappers in his class. More overall speed pushes him to the top.

Maddie Golden – incredible Long Snapper that can rip the ball back to the punter. Also overflowing with an amazing personality. Easily the top of Long Snapper that could dominate on and off the field.

Kameron Hawkins – Late invite to the TOP 12 Camp and it was well deserved. Only a 2020 Long Snapper but already is snapping at D1 speeds and accuracy. Athleticism and strength will be huge. No one works harder and smarter.

Dillon Hayes – Incredibly accurate and consistent Long Snapper. Locking down his spiral is the key to greatness.

Hayden Hood – Athletic Long Snapper with massive upside. Getting bigger and more powerful is going to be key for Hood.

Noah Howell – Might be the most improved Long Snapper in his class over the past year. Built thick and strong. Great upside.

Clay James – Recent University of Miami commit is beyond accurate and consistent with his snaps. Strength with his snaps and consistency of speed will be huge for Clay.

Jarrett Key – Looked solid and was impressive. Overall strength is going to be huge for Key advancing up the rankings.

Drew Little – Easily one of the top 2019 Long Snappers in his class. Strong with a very a efficient snap. If his spiral was completely locked down, he would have had a TOP 12 spot.

Chance Nelson – Massive upside on this Long Snapper that is a tremendous JC athlete. Kid flies down the field and is a massive factor on punt coverage. Making sure his ball is spiraling is the key.

Jude Pedrozo – Thick and strong Long Snapper that will be as good as he wants to be. Confidence with his snapping will be huge. Incredible personality that can dominate a team.

Randen Plattner – One of the most impressive Long Snappers at the camp and right on the cusp of making the TOP 12. Consistency of speed is the key for Randen.

Austin Riggs – Long Snapper that rises to the level of competition around him. Great personality that is going to be successful in whatever he chooses to do.

Luke Rizzo – Overall dedication is going to be key Rizzo.

Michael Vinson – Really impressed with Vinson’s attitude and snaps. Making sure his spiral is fully locked down and continuing to build on his strength will be key.

Nathan Weneta – athletic Long Snapper that was very close to making the TOP 12. Increasing his overall strength and confidence will be huge for him as we go through the next couple of years.

Jax Wilson – Incredible upside and he could easily end up being one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Smoothing out his snapping motion will be huge for Jax.

Jacob Zuhr – 2020 Long Snapper that left no doubt he is the best in his class with his powerful snaps that can easily hit sub .70 and he is only going to be a sophomore!!!

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Recap of the FL Fall Camp (10/2/16)

Lindale Football Stadium at NightRubio Long Snapping traveled to Florida on October 2, 2016 for their fall camp and the talent there was tremendous. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling across the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them ready for the biggest event for specialists in the country, Vegas XXIX. Next stop is PA on Sunday, October 9th!

Long Snappers from across the state of Florida were on hand to obtain the best instruction and most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Oscar Shadley (FL, ’18)! Oscar was very impressive all day, snapping fast and accurate footballs through the whole morning session. He carried that momentum over to the afternoon where he reached the finals of the winner’s bracket for the accuracy competition, and was dominant in the speed competition having 5 of his 6 snaps in the .6s (and his worst was .72)! He won the camp through a dominant effort in the overall championship round. He is very well developed physically and has the confidence to play at the next level. Expect a huge performance out of Oscar at Vegas XXIX!

Top 2017 Long Snappers

lawless-paul

Paul Lawless

Paul Lawless (FL) was the pick to win the competition after the morning session. He was very smooth all day and effortlessly gets the ball back to the punter. He has a tremendous frame, very long and can put on more weight without any issue. He uses his legs very well for how tall he is, just needs to focus on keeping his butt down when he is getting set in his stance to help his snap from going high.

Ethan Willis (FL) had a great camp and shoed a lot of promise throughout the day. He has extremely long arms and very quick hands that allow him to get the ball back very quickly. After seeing himself during the film session, Ethan started to be more conscious of his legs and needing to be more aggressive and quicker with his leg lock. Continuing to work on that as well as flexibility will be huge for him.

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Clay James

Clay James

Clay James (FL) was off the charts all day and was the winner of the winner’s bracket of the accuracy competition. His form is darn near perfect and really uses it to his advantage to snap very fast times (on top of being in the finals for the accuracy competition, he was also one of the last two in the speed competition with camp champion Oscar Shadley). Clay has the ability to be dominant when all things are clicking, and expect him to show this in Vegas XXIX.

Zach Castano (FL) really impressed through the morning and afternoon sessions. His form was extremely sound and was very accurate. Very athletic kid who moves very well and was hungry to learn everything he could about Long Snapping; was very attentive and engaged in all classroom session. Really enjoyed working with Zach and look forward to see his continued improvement.

Braxton Baker (FL) was probably one of the smoothest Long Snappers at the camp. His ball cut through the air with ease, and everything was effortless to him. Big strong athlete who needs to develop his flexibility a bit more to allow his legs to fully lock out. Once he gets the full power out of his legs, punters better watch out because the ball will be humming back.

Evan Dvorchik (FL) had a great camp. His form is almost there, and with continued focus on not popping up when he snaps will make it perfect. He snapped from very good balls throughout the day, but fine tuning his technique just the tiniest amount will make him more consistent and become very, very good.

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Enzo Anthony

Enzo Anthony

Enzo Anthony (FL) was very close to winning the whole camp. He came back through the knockout round of the accuracy competition and ended up winning the finals vs Clay James. Enzo shows tremendous upside for someone of his age. His form is so sound and he snaps such a tight spiral. As he continues to develop physically and get a little more power in his snap, he is going to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Frank Melgarejo (FL) impressed all day. He is a very physically developed for his age, and with continued work will become a tremendous Long Snapper. A little work on weight distribution (sitting back at the beginning, sitting back down at the end) along with flexibility (not popping up so much as he snaps) will be monumental in his development. I know he will continue to work on those and am excited to see him continue to develop!

Griffin Kaye (FL) had a very good camp. His form is very good, and when he decides to get set, he can snap with the best of them. The six inches between the ears will the biggest hurdle for Griffin, as he needs to stop thinking so much and just get set and snap the ball. When he does that he is great.

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr (FL) is extremely talented for his age. His flexibility is off the charts, and his form is darn near perfect. He snaps a very tight spiral that cuts through the air effortlessly. Excited to see Jacob continue to develop physically as he has a very bright future ahead of him!

Clay Caldwell (FL) took some very purposeful strides in his development at this camp. He came in very raw, but his attentiveness to detail and eagerness to learn from others, he came out a very more polished Long Snapper. I know Clay will continue to take all the fundamentals and skills he learned home and will come back to his next camp a very much improved Long Snapper.

Raymond Freeman

Raymond Freeman

The overall camp champion was RAYMOND FREEMAN (FL, ’17)! Freeman caught fire early in the day and never stopped. Came close in the accuracy contest, did well through the agility section and was outstanding in the speed competition. He left no doubt in the end that he was one of the top Long Snappers in the country.

Raymond snaps with great power and can get the ball back to the punter in under .7 very consistently. I like his size and he is moving well on his feet. The more he snaps the ball with absolute full power and confidence, the better he does. TONS of upside on this Long Snapper from Florida.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter was solid all day long in GA. Very thick and strong Long Snapper with great power and very quick hands. Ball really jumps out of the gate and gets back to the punter in a jiffy. Continuing to work on his athleticism will just continue to move him up the ladder.

Quinn Stephenson is a solid Long Snapper with a good frame and a smooth snap. Ball is like butter coming back to the punter. Being quicker with his get off will push him up the rankings.

Matthew Newsome was impressive in GA. He is a big Long Snapper with good power and a nice, accurate snap. Good potential and I like his attitude. Keep a very close eye on him

Chris Clore continues to impress me with his attitude, dedication to his size and the smoothness of his ball. Driving his elbows and snapping with confidence will be huge as move towards XXIX.

Tommy Zozuz did well for his first Rubio Long Snapping camp. Upper body is very solid and he can get the ball back in the high .7s. Love to see him focus on not rocking to start the process and getting his lower half fully involved to gain more speed.

Matthew Smith is coming along nicely and will dominate once he gets his butt down a bit more and allows his eyes to rip all the way through to the punter.

NOTABLES: Javier King, Dillon Manning, Ben Shirley

Clay James

Clay James

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Clay James had a great day in GA. Body is thick, strong and he has great form. Really starting to lock in and get laser focused. Confidence is coming along nicely and he can catch a groove. Snapping with full power at all times is the key for James. Excellent attitude and always improving.

Cade Long was only able to participate in half the camp but still was able to show his full dominance. Ball is tight and really rips back to the punter. Continuing to put on some size and make sure he is snapping with confidence will be huge as we head into TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE.

Jarret Key was impressive in GA. Body is strong and he is smooth. Times are in the high .7s and I want them in the low .7s by XXIX. Love to see him snap KNOWING he is one of the best rather than hoping he is. Kid has very good upside and attitude.

Bryce Chason is absolutely dripping with potential. The better he handles pressure, the higher he will go. Keep a VERY close eye on this Long Snapper from GA.

Parker Lefton looked very good with his snapping (when he is snapping with full power) and his body is coming along nicely. Love his attitude.

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Quentin Skinner was in attendance for half the camp but was dominant enough to show he was the top 2019 Long Snapper in attendance. Built like a brick house and can snap in the .6s when he is fully following through. Very strong Long Snapper with great form. Excited to see the future of this Long Snapper. Works hard.

Thomas Johnstone has excellent upside and definitely headed in the right direction. Built very long and has a frame that will hold another 30 lbs in the next two years. Ball is smooth and he has great form. Keep a very close eye on this kid.

Brendan Beattie was throwing heat all day in GA. Form is good and he has strong hands. Needs to really focus on locking down his spiral or the ball will be very hard to catch for the punter.

NOTABLES: Luke Payne

Zane McCracken

Zane McCracken

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Zane McCracken was easily the best 2020 Long Snapper in attendance. Zane is a long time Rubio Long Snapper and you can easily tell. Form is darn near flawless and he can already throw the ball in the .8s, which is very impressive for his age. The bigger he gets over the next four years, the better he will be. Kid is VERY good for his age or for someone a couple years older.

Eli Pyrz showed me some good upside. Love his size and how well he listens. Watch this kid over the next couple of years.

Long Snappers came out from FL, AL SC, TX, OK, MS, IL , MI and NC to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Thomas Fletcher (FL, ’17)! Fletcher is the top ranked Long Snapper in the country with offers from Memphis, Florida State, Portland State and Oregon. He left no doubt he deserves those offers and many more. Fletcher handles pressure as well as anyone I have ever had and has no wasted movement in his snap. Ball jumps out of the gate.

2016

Brett DioGuardi

Brett DioGuardi was the top 2016 Long Snapper in attendance in FL. He has good size and is a very accurate and consistent Long Snapper. Trusting his form and really letting the ball fly will assist with speed. Great attitude.

Matt Hembrough had a great day in FL. Growing like a weekend and snaps a very consistent ball. Lots and lots of upside on Hembrough. Keep a very close eye on him at XXVIII in May.

Paul Lawless is a very solid Long Snapper with a great attitude. When it all clicks for him, he will destroy his class. Very good upside

David Demeter is a tremendous athlete that really flies down field on punt coverage. Major factor on the punt team. Like to see him work on being quicker on his initial movement.

Gabe Hantz is a strong Long Snapper that just needs to focus on getting set to truly dominate. Good frame.

Oscar Shadley was the top 2018 Long Snapper in attendance in FL. He can pass an eyeball test from 100 yards away and is a very good athlete. Working on consistency will be huge for him in VEGAS.

Clay James ended the day VERY strong in FL. The less he thinks, the better he does. Smooth Long Snapper with no wasted movement. Ball gets a good jump out of the gate 

AJ Covan is a machine with his accuracy. He rarely misses on The Target and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him win VEGAS.

Dillon Hayes is a solid Long Snapper with good speed. Snapping full speed at all times will be what I am looking for in VEGAS.
