Recap of the TX Spring Camp (4/29/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on April 29th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Long Snappers from 10 states all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The champions of the camp were Braedy Wilson (speed) and Eliot Gottsegen (overall)! Braedy was on fire throughou the speed competition and was having no problem getting sub .75. Gottsegen got hot at the right time and just became a juggernaut and mowed down Long Snapper after Long Snapper in the finals. Smooth Long Snapper with quick eyes and hands. Really impressive how well he handled the pressure of being in the finals and winning while being just a freshman!

Wilson, Rubio and Gottsegen

The finals round matchups were Blake Hooker (62.11), JJ Lindsay (54.10), Grant Goltra (45.88), Hayden Hood (42.47), Eliot Gottsegen (30.67) and Dylan Wiltcher (29.63). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Evan “Mufasa” Gibson was smooth, consistent and left no doubt he is ready for college. Body is thick and he is strong. Ball hovers in the mid to high .7s and can trickle to the .8s if he becomes tentative. The harder he snaps the ball, the better Mufasa will do in the long run. Great attitude.

Mason Smith was very efficient with his snapping motion and hovered right in the low .8s all day long. Good worker that listens well.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Luke Rizzo was on absolute fire all day long in TX. You could tell he was a man on a mission and he left no doubt he was one of the most dominant Long Snappers in the country today. Body is getting thicker and stronger by the hour. Ball is very quick. Making sure he is extending the ball out and getting fully set puts this kid at 5 Stars at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Hayden Hood is a very athletic Long Snapper with a smooth, consistent snapping motion. Love his overall attitude and I am ready to win a camp and leave no doubt.

Caden Bolz is thick and strong with very quick hands and legs. Butt is lower than normal and he can still get his legs locked. Ball is powerful.

Braedy Wilson won the speed competition, is built extremely long and can rip the ball back to the punter. Moves in a smooth fashion and if he can fully lead with his elbows, he will average sub .70

Brandon Oldham is thick and strong with a quick ball. Lowering his butt to get his back to parallel will take him to the top.

Joshua Burtch is big and strong with very quick hands. Thick Long Snapper that can dominate at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Brayden Chandler showed me some great things in TX and he has all of the tools to be one of the greats.

Andrew Downs is a quiet Long Snapper that does all of his talking with snap speeds well under .80 on a consistent basis.

John Farris has a great attitude and has some of the quickest hands in the country.

Jack Harrison improved a ton and is starting to snap with a lot of confidence. Watch this kid.

JJ Lindsay is beyond smooth and snaps one of the most catchable balls in the country.

Joshua Smetzer hovered under .80 all day and has a massive amount of upside.

Nick Stoia will absolutely crush his class if he can focus on slow motion drills to get all of his lower half fully involved.

Jake Zenger has a tremendous attitude and a frame that could put on fifty pounds over the next couple of years to make himself a top prospect.

Landon Sleeper is strong and smooth. Leading with his elbows is the key to his greatness.

Notables: Nate McCormack, Anthony Rosenstrauch, Cayden Sparks, Nicholas DiVirgilio, Zac Bland

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Blake Hooker was tremendous in TX and actually broke the spring record for RSI with a 62.11! Ball is very quick and he is starting to really roll right now. The more he snaps with absolute confidence and knows how great he is, the better he will be and be able to fully dominate his class. Watch him very closely at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Dylan Wiltcher made it to the finals and was inches from winning the whole time. He looked very determined and showed he is a flat out stud in his class.

Bryce Felt came out from CA and was snapping with great power. Ball rarely goes above .80 at fifteen yards and his improvement over the past couple of months is off the charts.

Bryce Eimer was snapping very well under pressure and is close to snapping a college ball right now and he still has two years left of high school.

Jake Foggia looked great in TX with his very smooth snaps and great attitude. Always improving and the more he leads with his elbows and snaps with full power, the more dominant he becomes.

Jackson McFarland was snapping some severe heat in TX and left no doubt he can be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Eli Chism has grown very well over the past couple of months and is starting to look like a college Long Snapper now.

John Bergeron is smooth and has great form. Locking down his spiral is going to be the key.

Jarret Caillier has great size and all of the tools to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Nolan Pope is big, has a great personality and very quick hands.

Ethan Lane is big, thick and very strong. Making sure his elbows are going straight back is the key to greatness.

Lee Pyles is very good and he is headed towards great. Ball is very quick.

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS
JT Sleeper is a big and thick Long Snapper that snaps a beyond smooth ball. Form is coming along extremely well and the kid is an absolute workhorse. The harder he snaps the ball and the more he can improve his overall athleticism, the higher up the rankings he will go.

Connor Able has all of the tools to be one of the best Long Snappers in his class. Great attitude and listens well. Locking down his spiral will help a ton.

Byron Rhodes will dominate his class once he stops thinking a little bit. Just letting his body do all of the work and trusting his form will be huge for Rhodes.

Grant Goltra is absolutely overflowing with potential and can crush everyone if he can utilize all of his body. Slow motion snaps will help him a ton.

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.

Champion Aaron Blaylock

Champion Aaron Blaylock

Long Snappers came out from FL, IA, CA, MO, MS, CO, AR, KS, NE, LA and TX to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Next ranking opportunities will be at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camps in NC on March 28TH and GA on March 29th.

The overall winner of the camp was Aaron Blaylock. Blaylock came on very strong in the end and was snapping with a great deal of confidence. Very proud of how far he has come in the past year.

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.

Notables: Bleu Willis, Eric Ryan, Alex Edwards, Cooper Cox & Tristan Thompson

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.
