Recap of the TX Spring Camp (3/26/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on March 26th, 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 Arizona and New Jersey on April 9th, April 23 in Illinois and April 30th in Georgia.

This was the fourth 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

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.

Notables: JT Sleeper, Johnny Bergeron, Zach Chlore, Jake Foggia, Coltin Knape, Alec Eckert, Jackson McFarland, Jake Eldridge, Thad Baker

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPER

Boudreaux, Tyler

  •   Tyler Boudreaux – He is a very good size and has a nice, solid frame.    When he is on, he is really on. His form is exceptional and he needs to    realize it by snapping full speed all of the time. Consistent, great snaps  will help him a ton in the long run; no more waves of brilliance. I just to  see one dominant snap after another. THIS KID HAS POTENTIAL.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS

Eatherly, Geron

  •  Geron Eatherly -He could easily be the most accurate and consistent Long Snapper in his class. Need to see him lower his butt just a tad more and make his hands a bit quicker. Should be solely focused on winning VEGAS XXVI and getting to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Both goals are easily obtainable. VERY good kid and will make a college coach really happy in the future.
  •  Greg Royal – He has a great frame and is one of the smoothest Long  Snappers in his class. Royal needs to make sure he follows through and  snaps the ball with full power on  all punt snaps. His form is good and he needs to trust it. He has VERY  high potential. Keep a very close eye  on him at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Parker Robinson – He is built strong and uses his power well. I would love to see him lock down his spiral  and focus on getting his eyes through quickly at all times. Parker is always improving and should be looked  at on the weekend of VEGAS XXVI.
  • Logan Klusman –  Klusman is bordering on full domination and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it happen at  VEGAS XXVI. He is big, strong and snaps with great power. He is very athletic. He also needs to make sure  he always follows completely through. His power is very good. Keep a very, very close eye on him for the  next couple of months.
  • Dylan Alexander –  When he snaps as hard as he possibly can, he is tremendous. He has good form and he  needs to trust it and just let the ball go. Dylan makes good use of his whole body when he is snapping the  ball. He is always improving. Athletically, he runs hard but needs to gain some control of his body when he  is going forward and laterally. This kid has a VERY good attitude.
  • Travis Arroyo -STRONG is an understatement. Excellent movement and flexibility for someone his size. When he snaps as hard as he physically can, he is unstoppable. Great attitude and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him win the whole event at VEGAS XXVI. Coming into his own at the right time.
  • Jon Letter – Form is darn near flawless and he is definitely one of those Long Snappers that is always improving. Love to see him snap with full power at all times. He has increased his body size and it (along with his great form) is helping a ton. REALLY want to see him focus on locking down his spiral. The ball is quick but if it has a heavy wobble on it, the punter will have a great deal of difficulty catching the snap. Once spiral is locked down, he will move way up the charts and his speed will increase, my bet is, into the .6s for a punt snap. POTENTIAL.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Pagel, Jake

  • Jake Pagel – Pagel really stepped up his game and dominated the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX. He absolutely explodes when he snaps the ball. There is tons of promise for this Long Snapper from TX. He has great form and lets the ball rip out of the gate. I would keep a VERY close eye on him at VEGAS XXVI. He could easily challenge for the top spot.
  • Reeves Blankenship – Reeves has a great frame and looks like a D1 athlete already at this point and he is only a sophomore. He is big framed and I would like to see him widen out a bit more to make sure he can use all of his frame without being cramped. There are tons of upsides with him. I would keep an eye on him at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jacob Rubenstein – His form is great and he keeps improving. I would love to see his eyes be a little quicker and really explode with his body.  This kid is filled with potential.
  • Caleb Cantrell – Big jump for Caleb and well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX. I love his starting form and the way he explodes with his upper body. This kid has power. His form is good. The more he trusts it, the better he will be in the long run. He can dip into the .7s and if he gets his lower half involved I can’t see him not hitting in the .6s by VEGAS XXVI.
  • Chris Clore – He is a large man that has the ability to snap a very quick ball when he just lets it go. Clore’s form is good and he needs to trust it and his strength. He has TONS of potential. He needs to keep himself leaning back, and that will help all aspects of his snapping. I will be looking for athleticism and hard snapping from him at VEGAS XXVI and beyond. Chris has a good attitude.

Notables: Jordan Silver

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS & FUTURE STARS

Edwards, Zach

  •  Zach Edwards – Zach is coming along VERY nicely. His form is looking exceptional and he is already  snapping in the .8s at 15 yards. I would like to see him extend his arms to create more whip. He is  extremely close to already having his legs be fully involved in the process. This kid is dripping with  potential and could be the next great one. Watch him.
  •  John Raines – Raines is built long and has great form already for his age. He really uses his lower half well.  The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be. He has TONS of potential and could easily take the  top spot by VEGAS XXVI.
  • Tre Rubio – His form is excellent for his age. He has come a long with his form and is always improving. The bigger and stronger he gets the better he will be. Rubio has tons of potential since he is so coachable. Watch him. His hands are quick. Locking down his spiral will help a ton in the long run.
