Recap of the College Camp (July 16-17, 2016)

J-A-VstrsMany of the top college Long Snappers in the country came out to the incredible IMG ACADEMY in Bradenton, FL for two days of great instruction and camaraderie. This is always one of my favorite camps due to the high level of snapping and getting to see all of the Long Snapper’s personalities.

Josh Appel

Josh Appel

The top overall Long Snapper was Josh Appel of Indiana State. Appel is a back to back champion of this camp and is looking very solid heading into his senior year and future in the NFL. He has great size, an incredibly fast snap (not uncommon to see him in snap in the .6s and EVEN high .5s for 15 yards). Keep a close eye on Appel and you will not be disappointed.

Dillon Paprota

Dillon Paprota

The Accuracy Champion of the camp was Dillon Paprota of Bucknell. Paprota is just heading to Bucknell this fall but already looks like a seasoned vet. He has excellent size and strength with an extremely powerful snap. Accuracy is obviously off the charts and he has a great demeanor. Already expecting him to win this camp next year.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Williams of South Carolina is going to be one of the top overall Long Snappers in college next year with his outstanding speed, solid accuracy and great athleticism for the Gamecocks.

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire at the college camp. This left is very smooth and his accuracy is excellent. Only going into his second season with the Florida Gators and they look to be set for some time with his great snaps.

Tanner Carew of the Oregon Ducks was excellent all camps. Athletic Long Snapper with very good power and an incredibly smooth snap. Always fun to watch Carew snap and see his personality.

Recap Article of the NJ Fall Camp (10/25)

12049296_900370960039035_5597750255072391400_n
Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on October 25th for their fall camp. The camp was at gorgeous school and the weather was good after about ten minutes of light drizzle. The talent was even better.

Long Snappers came out from NY, PA, NJ, VA, MJ, OH, CT, MD & RI to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Dillon Paprota (NJ, ’16)! Dillon, a recent Bucknell commit, was throwing absolute heat all day in NJ. Ball was flying out of his hands. Good accuracy and consistency as well make him one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Matt Bonish

    Matt Bonish

    Jimmy Picerelli has tons of upside and can snap in the .6s. If he can put on some more size over the next couple of years, he could end up being one of the top Long Snappers in college.

  • Matt Bonish impressed me with his incredible athleticism and solid snapping. Great kid that listens really well.
  • Stephen Klotz is a smooth Long Snapper with a good frame and accurate ball. Tough kid.
  • Nate Walker is a massive man with good power that has improved tremendously over the past couple of months.
  • Donovan Cahill is an athletic Long Snapper that is always getting better and has good potential.

Notables: Derrick Chase, John Murphy, Chris Sayan

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Tristan Sokach-Minnick

    Tristan Sokach-Minnick

    Kasey Kelleher was an animal in NJ. Kid throws fire back to the punter and is built strong. Love to see him keep working on his size and his blocking. VERY good Long Snapper.

  • Tristan Sokach-Minnick is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in the country. Runs like the wind and snaps like a champ. VEGAS XXVII should be huge for him.
  • Billy Taylor was snapping bullets all day and has improved a lot in a short amount of time.
  • Brian Keating showed me great things all day and is definitely one to watch over the next year.
  • Ryan Cassidy showed great athleticism and upside.

Notables: Ryan Walker, Ryan McNeil, Nick Low, Kevin Laughlin, Zach Cannon, Kevin Crabtree

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Jack Hadley had a great day in NJ. He is a thick, strong Long Snapper that snaps the ball with some good pop. Showed very solid power.
  • Nicolas Wissinger impressed me with how well he uses his whole body when he is snapping the ball. Form is impeccable.

Notables: Matt Aloni, Kevin Cahill, Jack McCauley,

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Austin Sullivan

    Austin Sullivan

    Stephen Sokach-Minnick was a great student of Long Snapping all day and showed good upside. Follows through really well and he has good accuracy.

  • Austin Sullivan is growing by the second and has potential. He grows so fast that continually adjusting his form will be key in moving up the rankings.

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.
