Recap of the NC Spring Camp (3/11/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on March 11th, 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!

Maddie Golden, Rubio and Joe Shimko!

Long Snappers from 13 states all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was overflowing with talent with many committed seniors and also tons of new Long Snappers.

The overall champions of the camp were Maddie Golden (speed) and Joe Shimko (overall). Shimko has won four camps in the past year and continues to be amazing on the field. He is one of the only Long Snappers I have ever seen that actually gets better as the day goes on. The more tired Shimko gets, the better he ends up snapping the ball.

You can see the full finals video with Drew Little, Will Cobb, Christian Johnstone, Joseph Shimko, Aaron Brannock and Bryce Eimer below…

Maddie Golden

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Maddie Golden was amazing in NC. His speeds were so good that I had to re-time him several times as they were so good. Easily was snapping sub .75 at 15 yards with tons of snaps in the .6s. He won the overall speed competition with snaps in the low .6s.

Brock Assel is looking very solid (be sure to check out his hair!) and was snapping with great consistency. Upside is very solid and I am loving his work ethic. Air Force got a great one.

Trey Gable was very impressive in NC. Form is excellent, he snaps well under a pressure and he has a tremendous attitude. His snapping motion has minimal wasted movement and he can rip the ball back to the punter.

Notable: Graham Finklea

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Mad Dog

Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner left absolutely no doubt he is the best junior in the country. Moves well on his feet, he is massive and he is as consistent as anyone in the country. Ball is so smooth yet so powerful. It is a pure joy to watch and LSU is lucky to have him coming in two years. Kid is a flat out stud.

Drew Little was on fire in NC and continues to show me why NC State had no problem offering him a full scholarship during his junior year. Form is excellent and he snaps the ball with great force. So smooth and a tremendous worker that is always improving. Great attitude.

Christian Johnstone can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile away, moves well on his feet and has a great personality. He snaps a really catchable ball that will stick to your hands.

Joe Shimko was incredible in the finals and just ripped the ball back, time after time, right into the three hole. The more exhausted he gets, the more dominant he becomes. It’s just crazy to watch.

Douglas McLaughlin was solid all day in NC. He has a great frame and is one of the most accurate/consistent Long Snappers in the country.

William Wagner has done a great job improving his overall frame and was snapping with a purpose. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Luke Hosford was impressive in NC. Form is great and he has excellent size. Watch this kid.

Rhys Suter is coming off an injury and you would never even know it. Form is great and he was having no problem snapping in the mid .7s.

Luke Payne had a solid day in NC with extremely accurate and consistent snaps. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be in the long run.

Brandon Hurst showed me tremendous upside. When he is quick with his snapping motion and snaps hard, he is as good as they get.

Mark Fuchs has great starting form and is smooth when snapping the ball. Leading with his elbows and snapping with full power will help a ton.

Griffin Kaye showed incredible upside and there is no doubt he can snap at the next level.

Liam Crowley did well in NC. Looks like he is continuing to grow and has no problem snapping a ball sub .79. Great upside.

Notables: Peter Griffith, Alex Harper, Carson Knight, Matt Parrino, Justin Pollock, Nathan Smith, Kevin Thompson, Heath Tripp

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Will Albright

Will Albright looked excellent in NC. He moves extremely well on his feet, he has a frame that can easily put on some good weight over the next couple of years.

Zane McCracken is really improving well as he is snapping with confidence and snapping an extremely smooth ball. When his eyes go all the way through, he can easily get sub .75. Getting bigger by the second.

Bryce Eimer made it into the finals with an incredible RSI score. Accuracy is tremendous and he is starting to really snap well under pressure. Great attitude.

Jake Foggia was very solid in NC. Form is coming along nicely and he is beginning to snap with a great deal of confidence. Excellent attitude.

Will Cobb was snapping with excellent accuracy and made it to the finals. Easily could have won and only lost by inches. Gaining power and strength will be huge for Cobb as we head towards VEGAS XXXII in May.

John Bergeron looked very good with excellent form and a solid attitude. Balance is very good and he is always improving.

Byron Floyd is big, strong, powerful and can rip the ball back to the punter sub .75. Really impressive Long Snapper and person.

Ryan Purcell is smooth, accurate and is growing by the second. Great upside.

Peter Haynes is an athletic Long Snapper that is using his whole body very well. Locking down his consistency will be huge as we move ahead.

Notables: Alex Applefield, Ethan Lane, Ted Busbee, Will McCoy, Zach Cowan, and Cheyenne Wray

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker

Nick Walker looked very solid in NC. He is growing by the second and can already get the ball back to the punter in under .75! The upside on Walker is off the charts if he keeps improving at this rate.

Austin Turner

Austin Turner was excellent in NC. I just saw him a couple of months ago and, I kid you not, he looked like he had grown a foot in the last couple of months. Form is excellent, ball is tight and his upside is off the charts. He could easily be the top Long Snapper in his class at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Aaron Brannock had a great day in NC and made it all the way to the finals. Tremendous accomplishment for a freshman. The less he thinks, the better Brannock will do in the long run.

Oden Pierce showed me good things in NC. Great frame and he moves very well on his feet.

Alex McLaughlin did well in NC with solid athleticism and a nice, catchable ball. If he can eliminate his hitch by VEGAS XXXII in May, he could find himself staring down a TOP 12 Camp Invite.

Recap of the 2017 TX Fall Camp

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on November 12, 2017 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following TX, Rubio Long Snapping will head to NC on 11/19, GA on 12/3, AZ on 12/10, OH on 12/17 and then the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 1-15, 2018.

Long Snappers from TX, KS, LA, OK, CA, MO, MS & IL all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the TX Camp…

The overall winner of the camp was Luke Rizzo. Rizzo is a TOP 12 Camp invitee that left no doubt that invitation was well deserving. One of the hottest Long Snappers from the start of the camp to the finish. Form is good and he is snapping with great power. Even his misses were simply off by minimal inches. Size is good and he is moving well on his feet. Rizzo is getting better by the second and continues to learn how to dominate.

The finals in TX were between Luke Rizzo (48.1), John Farris (47.56), Dillon Hayes (42.67), Evan Gibson (34.21), Tre Rubio (33.78) and Kuper Imrem (32.53)

You can see the full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles was an absolute machine all day in TX. It is so fun to watch battles snap as he locks in and just crushes it….every single time. He has some of the quickest hands in the country and he can easily hit sub .75 on a very consistent basis. Body is looking solid and he is very determined. Just a flat out machine snapping the ball and is easily a scholarship Long Snapper.

Zach Edwards was the overall winner of the speed competition with snaps well under .70…yes, .70. His ball was picking up speed as the day progressed. One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes with his snapping.

Zach Edwards

Dillon Hayes continues to find his way into the finals of each camp with his great poise under pressure and his incredible consistency and accuracy.

Jax Wilson looks like a college tight end right now and has some of the most amazing upside I have seen in years from a Long Snapper. Body is great and his potential is off the charts. When he is on, there is no one better.

Evan Gibson is looking very smooth and strong. Body is powerful and he is really starting to snap with lots of confidence. Love his attitude.

Tre Rubio was snapping a great spiral all day and had many snaps sub .75. Tre was on fire all day and looked very impressive.

Chandler Moses was snapping with great confidence, a nice frame, and some good zip on the ball.

Cole Voyles has some increadile form and a frame that is able to put on some good weight over the next couple of years.

Notables: Austin Ortega, Grayson Broussard

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Luke Rizzo

Luke Rizzo was incredible all day long in TX. This is obvious as he was the overall winner of the whole camp and made it deep into the speed finals round as well. The more confidence he snaps with and the more he knows how great he truly is, the better he will be in the long run.

Braedy Wilson

Braedy Wilson is a tall drink water with upside that is off the charts. Ball is fast as he can easily be sub .75 when he lets the ball fly out of his hands. Frame is great with room to put on some good weight over the next year.

Caden Bolz came our from KS and was very solid. Ball was quick, body is thick and he has great power throughout.

Nathan Tokar is really starting to snap with some solid confidence and had no problem getting the ball under .80 on a regular basis. Every time I see Tokar he is looking more and more physically fit.

Chad Wolf is big, strong and overflowing potential. The upside on Wolf is off the charts. Good form and attitude.

Nick Stoia has good follow through and the ability to easily get the ball under .80. Smoothing out his form and becoming more and more consistent will move him way up the rankings.

David Medrano showed great upside and I love his attitude. Body is strong and he snaps a smooth ball back to the punter.

Kuper Imrem did well all day in TX and made it to the finals. The more confidence he snaps with, the better he does.

Nate McCormack did really well all day in TX. Very impressed with his attitude and how much he has improved over the last couple of months.

John Farris made it to the finals and was close to taking his talents deep into the finals. Always improving and one of the best attitudes of all the Long Snappers in the 2019 class.

Notables: Ross Arroyo, Josh Burtch, Brayden Chandler, Landon Sleeper

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Blake Hooker

Blake Hooker was tremendous all day in TX and even made it very deep into the speed finals as he was one of the last three Long Snappers to be snapping. Ball is tight and he is headed towards greatness. The more he knows that, the better he will do.

Dylan Wiltcher

Dylan Wiltcher looked very solid with great snap speeds under .80 and a tremendous attitude. Dylan is good an headed towards great.

John Bergeron

John Bergeron was terrific all day in TX. Snap speeds were great and consistent under .80. Need Bergeron to not be so surprised of his greatness and except to dominate.

John Luke Roberts showed massive upside. Kid is going to be good.

Notables: Phillip Bourque, Peter Brown, Bryce Felt, Coltin Knape, Jackson McFarland, Ethan Wells, Ethan Lane

TOP 2021 & BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker

Nick Walker was excellent in TX. Kid is growing like a weed and is already snapping like a Varsity Long Snapper right now. His hands are quick and he can easily get the ball sub .80 at 15 yards. Nick is headed towards greatness if he maintains this pace.

Connor Able showed great upside in TX with snaps consisntely under. 82 and a nice, long frame.

Nate Adams might have the most potential of any 2021 Long Snapper in the country. Kid is massive and looks like a college tight end right now. If he works on his form, he could easily dominate his class at VEGAS XXXI.

Grant Goltra is flat out dripping with potential and is very coachable.
