Recap of the FBU TOP GUN Camp (July 14-15, 2016)

CSK_RLS_FBURubio Long Snapping traveled to Rock Hill, SC on July 14-15 to run the FBU TOP GUN Camp and choose the FBU and Army All-Americans. The weather was hot and so were the Long Snappers in attendance. The Long Snappers present were many of the best in the country and the competition did not disappoint. Here are the results of the two day camp….

2017

Thomas Fletcher Army All-American

Thomas Fletcher Army All-American

As expected, the senior class was stacked with Long Snapping talent from all over the country. Previously named Army All-American Thomas Fletcher led the group with very quick hands, incredible form and flawless snaps under pressure. Nick Saban and Alabama got a great one when Fletcher committed on full scholarship to the Tide.

The top four Long Snappers that headed into the competition for the final Army All-American spot were Drew Wise, Kyle Gibbs, Jake Pagel and Mitch Hall. The first ball was between Drew Wise and Kyle Gibbs. Both Long Snappers were excellent over the two day span with VERY fast snaps on a consistent basis. Gibbs proved to be the better Long Snapper by knocking out Wise in just a couple of snaps.

Mitch Hall Army All American

Mitch Hall Army All American

The next battle was between Jake Pagel and Mitch Hall. Both Long Snappers showed great accuracy over the two day span with no let off when heavy pressure or blocking was thrown into the mix. Mitch Hall took the lead early in this one and never let up to defeat Pagel.

The final Army All-American spot came down to a snap off between Kyle Gibbs and Mitch Hall. The heated match went for many snaps as the Long Snappers had to get a total of seven points. They both hit a three right off the bat, but Mitch Hall was able to pull away in the end and earn the coveted Army All-American spot for the East Team!

2018

Max Durschlag

Max Durschlag

The top two Long Snappers in this class were Maddie Golden and Max Durschlag with Durschlag coming out on top in the end to claim the title 2018 TOP GUN MVP Long Snapper. Durschlag started slow but got hot at the right time and was smooth as silk on the final day. Doesn’t say much but doesn’t need to do when he is throwing heat like he did on the final day.

2019

Frank melgarejo

Frank melgarejo

The top two Long Snappers in this class were Drew Little and Frank Melgarejo with Melgarejo edging out Little in the competition to claim the title 2019 TOP GUN MVP Long Snapper. Melgarejo is a very athletic Long Snapper with good upside. Hands are strong and he is aggressive when he is snapping. Working on smoothing out his snapping motion will greatly move him up the ladder. Good potential.

2020

Kameron Hawkins and Aaron Estrada

Kameron Hawkins and Aaron Estrada

Aaron Estrada and Kameron Hawkins were the top 2020 Long Snappers and both earned the honor of being FBU All-Americans at the Alamo Dome in January. Estrada outlasted Jacob Zuhr while Hawkins out performed Jackson Worthen in the finals. Estrada has a nice, long frame with good starting form and can handle pressure well. Hawkins was flat out dominant on both days of the camp and was snapping pearls non-stop. Both of these Long Snappers have the potential to be very dominant over the next couple years.

Carson Garrison was named a 2021 FBU All-American and be invited to the game in January at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio. He was crowned champion by defeating Nick Walker in a snap off on day two of the TOP GUN Camp. Garrison was solid over the two day span with consistent and accurate snaps with times right at the 1 second mark at worst. Very good upside and he handles pressure really well.

FBU TOP GUN RECAP

Over 60 Long Snappers came out to the FBU TOP GUN camp in Ohio to compete against each other for spots to the FBU 7th & 8th All-Star games along with the granddaddy of them all, the US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL in San Antonio, TX.

TOP GUN 2015

On the first day, the two best Long Snappers in attendance, John Shannon (’16, IL) and Johnny Den Bleyker (’16, CA) were chosen to battle for the first All-American spot. They went head to head on The Rubio Target to see who would be the first to five. These two didn’t disappoint with both scoring on each snap. Eventually, John Shannon couldn’t be beat and earned the first All-American spot.

Jacob Zuhr FBU

Jacob Zuhr with Erik Richards of the Army All-American Bowl

For the youth, four 2020 Long Snappers were chosen to battle. Kameron Hawkins (CA), Jacob Zuhr (FL), Jackson Worthen (KY and Zane McCracken (GA) competed for one spot for the FBU All-Star game. The snaps were crisp and all did very well but the best of the best on this day was Jacob Zuhr and he was selected to be an FBU All-Star!

On day two of the FBU TOP GUN camp, the Long Snappers were taken through several competitions involving speed, accuracy and athleticism. After two days of charting, the top four 2016 Long Snappers were Jake Cesear (CA), Geron Eatherly (TX), Ben Wyatt (NC) and Johnny Den Bleyker (CA). Geron Eatherly battled Ben Wyatt to start off the finals and both did very well but Eatherly proved to be too much for Wyatt.

Next up was Jake Cesear against Johnny Den Bleyker. Both started slow but then it heated up quickly with Den Bleyker coming out on top. Snaps were crisp and on target for both Long Snappers.

Army All-Americans 2015

Army All-Americans Johnny Den Bleyker and John Shannon

The finals was Eatherly vs Den Bleyker. One of these two would be the final US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN Long Snapper. These two Long Snappers did not disappoint with both averaging in the low .7s with the ball being right on target. In the end, Den Bleyker proved his dominance and earned the spot.

For the 2020 Long Snappers, the final four to compete for the last spot were Kameron Hawkins (CA), Zane McCracken (GA), Michael Bastuga (IN) and Jackson Worthen (KY). It came down to Hawkins vs Worthen in the finals with Worthen being nails and earning the spot. I was VERY impressed with this group of incoming 8th graders. The future is bright with Rubio Long Snapping! (You should see the form on these kids!)

Congratulations to all of the Long Snappers in attendance and I wanted to give a couple shootouts to some of the guys that really stood out in my eyes….

VEGAS EVENT - 2014VEGAS EVENTS

As you know, the Vegas Events are the biggest and best Long Snapping camps in the world. They are truly a national event to see how you compete against the best in the nation, and world. The May Event, or VEGAS XXVI, is the second largest Long Snapping camp we run (VEGAS XXV in January is the biggest). The main difference is the weather and there are less seniors since many have already stepped onto their college campuses for their next stage of their life.

The Vegas Events are NOT an invite only camp. They are first come, first served. Long Snappers ranging from 8th grade – JC are allowed to attend.

This is the SUPER BOWL for Long Snappers. No other kicking event comes close to the exposure offered by the National Snapping Events. Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the most credible recruiting source for Long Snappers in the country. The “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” is the list to be on if you are seeking national exposure. From the Vegas Events, the Rubio Long Snapping Staff will select the “TOP 12” Seniors/JC & the “TOP 12” Underclassman (January) and “Event Elite” (May). Over 90% of the “TOP 12” have received full ride D1A scholarships in the past. Over 99% members of the “TOP 12” have gone on to play college football. In addition the “TOP 12” Underclassman will be invited to attend an exclusive summer camp to train and compete amongst that elite group.  The Competition Finals Round Winners (FG, Punt, and LS) will receive FREE Rubio Long Snapping Camps for 1 FULL YEAR.

Christian YountNFL FREE AGENT CAMP

  • March 3, CA

You (the specialists) asked for it, you got it. They (NFL coaches) asked for it, they got it. As you know, Chris Sailer and myself have always run the biggest and best exposure camps for high school Long Snappers and kickers. Now it is time for us to move completely into the NFL realm to give the needed exposure to our college athletes.

Chris Sailer and myself have been asked COUNTLESS times to run a free agent camp since it is something that has been lacking for quite some time in the world of specialists. It is now time. This one day camp will be a showcase for NFL coaches. There will be little coaching (you shouldn’t need a ton if you are at this camp) as this camp will all be about exposure. NFL coaches and personnel will be on hand to personally see the Long Snappers in action.

In order to attend this camp, you must be out of college and be eligible for the NFL draft.

You can register for the NFL Free Agent camp HERE (spots will be limited)

Rubio, Saban and SailerCOLLEGE CAMPS

TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE CAMP

This camp is open ONLY to those invited personally by Chris Rubio. You are chosen to attend this camp by performing extremely well at either the January or May National Snapping Events in Las Vegas. Do NOT sign up for this camp unless you have been formally invited by  Rubio. Former “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” members includes countless college and NFL players, All-Americans, NFL Pro Bowlers and Super Bowl participants.

Top 12 and Event Elite - 2014Some Long Snapping “TOP 12” Alumni: Christian Yount (Cleveland Browns), Justin Drescher (New Orleans Saints), Aaron Brewer (Denver Broncos), Jon Weeks (Houston Texans) to name a few.

The “TOP 12” is chosen after the January Event (VEGAS XXV) and the “EVENT ELITE” is chosen after the spring Event (VEGAS XXVI). There are obviously 12 chosen for the “TOP 12” and there is no set number for the “EVENT ELITE”. Those that deserve it and are top of their class in May, get chosen…it could be one, it could be 20.

The success rate of those we have been selected in the past that go on to play college football (most on scholarship) is over 95%.

Invites go out after each Vegas Event.

Underclassmen Invite Event - 2014UNDERCLASSMEN INVITE EVENT

You will almost think of this Event as a baby TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp. This two day event is a camp that Rubio Long Snapping will be completely gearing towards the athletes and their parents/guardians. This camp is meant to not only get the athletes headed in the right direction in the beginning of their high school careers, but also the parents as well. It will provide information regarding nutrition, social media, recruiting, film, education and, of course, on field instruction. This event is just as much for the parents/guardians as it is the athletes!

College recruiting for Long Snappers is finally getting where it needs to be. Scholarships are being offered earlier and earlier each year. Early exposure is necessary these days. The Rubio Long Snapping Underclassmen “Invite Only” Event is the perfect opportunity to make a name for yourself and solidify your national ranking at the perfect time. The middle of the summer is now the time college coaches build their underclassmen lists. You want to be on that list. This camp will get you there. It is also your first opportunity to prove that you are a “TOP 12” candidate in your class. The camp is set for early July for a reason, college coaches asked us to do this. They want the inside track early. Don’t be surprised to see more and more underclassmen offered during the season in the near future.

There will be formal meetings/classroom sessions on individual topics such as: Training (what level is right for the underclassmen athlete, how often, proper techniques), Nutrition and Lifting (Good habits, bad habits), Social Media (Setting up and using the proper social media outlets – this has become a must), Filming (proper angles, techniques, times, set up), Education (the importance of it, standards, year by year plan)

Invites go out in May.

Recap Article and Video of the 12th Annual Spring Event in Las Vegas

Long Snappers came out on May 10-11 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in Las Vegas from from over half of the USA to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field on Satuday with competition on Sunday. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

The overall winner of the camp was Jordan Ober (NV, ’15). Ober was exceptional all weekend in Vegas. The hometown hero snapped a great, accurate ball throughout the two days. He is snapping with confidence and dips into the D1 range. Incredible accuracy and has been improving a great amount in a very short amount of time. Excellent attitude.

The 12 Long Snappers that made the finals round on Sunday due to their exceptional RSI (Rubio Standard Index – score divided by speed with bonus points for more speed) were….Jordan Ober, AJ Carty, George Madden, Grant Gluhaich, Jake Knight, Tommy Bancroft, Liam McCullough, John Aloma, Harrison Goebel, Darren Diffee, Logan Hamilton & Michael Poujol. All were great but Ober just outlasted them all.

TOP 2014/JC Long Snappers (to see any profiles, simply go to RubioLongSnapping.com under Player Rankings)….

 

  • Wesley Bertoni looked exceptional all weekend. Body is strong and his form is perfect. AMAZING improvement in the last year
  • Cody Block did extremely well over the weekend in Vegas. He is transfer from Nevada and looks to being easily able to snap at the next level. The harder he snaps, the better he does.
  • Nick Avantino was snapping hard all weekend and moves well on his feet. Great attitude.
  • Elijah Richardson was throwing heat in Vegas and is built very well. Strong Long Snapper with a ton of upside.
  • Bobby Daggett looked poised and confident. Coming along very nicely.
  • Nathan Lucas looked very smooth and accurate all weekend in Vegas.

TOP 2015 Long Snappers (to see any profiles, simply go to RubioLongSnapping.com under Player Rankings)…

  • Blake Ferguson continues to dominate the art of Long Snapping. He looks like a full grown man and is snapping like one as well. Ball is very smooth, accurate and fast. Said it once and I will say it again, LSU got lucky grabbing him early.
  • Liam McCullough made it into the finals against Ober and could have easily taken the title. Kid is massive and snaps a nice ball that jumps out at you. Four scholarships and counting…and all well deserved.
  • Garrett Wilson  has been putting on some very good weight and that has helped him snapping immensely. Kid is on fire and was performing so well, I invited him to the Event Elite, right on the spot.
  • Ryan Simmons is another Long Snapper that was so impressive that he was selected to Event Elite right on the spot. Great accuracy and was snapping hard all weekend.
  • AJ Carty was ripping the ball back to the punter and snapping the ball with a ton of confidence.
  • Grant Gluhaich was ON FIRE all weekend in Vegas. Kid can snap as anyone in the country…easily. The bigger he gets, the better he will be.
  • Wes Farnsworth is as athletic a Long Snapper as you could ever hope for in life. Kid flies like the wind and rips the ball back to the punter.
  • George Madden is built like a college linebacker and snaps like a college Long Snapper.

Recap Article & Video of the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in TX

Long Snappers came out on April 27 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in TX from TX, CA, OK, NJ, MN, IL, LA, FL, AR, KS, GA and SC to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field, had a film and classroom session, a recruiting seminar and ended the day with a competition with Rubio present and running the camp. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

Eatherly, GeronThe overall winner of the camp was Geron Eatherly (TX, ’16). Geron (pronounced with a hard G) had a good day throughout the whole camp and came on very strong in the finals. He can snap a D1 ball right now and he is only a sophomore. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be. Look for him to do some big things in Vegas! Great attitude and always improving.

TOP 2014 LONG SNAPPERS…

  • JC Everett (AR) was simply fantastic all day long in TX. He has completely transformed his body by losing twenty lbs of excess weight and adding some great muscle. He looks wonderful and is snapping the same way. He is very ready for the Air Force Academy!
  • Bronson Bruneau (MN) looked excellent all day in TX and definitely ready to earn the starting spot next year at Duke. He is a massive man with a ton of upside. His snapping and his frame looked great.
  • Jordan Frese (TX) is headed to Texas A&M in the fall and is right on path to do great things. Body is getting bigger and his form is coming along very nicely. Great personality and attitude.
  • Bobby Joe Nielsen (TX) is absolutely ripping the ball back to the punter. He uses every ounce of his body and I love it. Form is very good and he is accurate. Midwestern State got a good one in Bobby Joe!
  • Clayton Jackson (KS) looked very smooth and confident all day long in TX. The more he knows he can do it, the better he will. Incredible person on all levels.

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPERS…

  • Michael Poujol (TX) passes the eyeball test very quickly and is becoming one of the most dominant Long Snappers in his class. Poujol left no doubt he was there to set himself apart from the others and that is exactly what he did with great snaps all day. He is ready for college now.
  • George Madden (OK) is built extremely well and has great form. This all equals to excellent snaps every single time. He was on fire all weekend and seems ready to dominate Vegas. Keep a very close eye on him. He is ready for college now.
  • Ryan Farr (NV) came all the way from Las Vegas but showed no jet-lag whatsoever. He is easily one of the smoothest Long Snappers in the country and is always snapping with great accuracy.
  • Sam Walkingstick (OK) could give Farr a run for the smoothest and most accurate Long Snapper in the country. Kid simply doesn’t miss!
  • Garrett Wilson  (NC) has put on about 2o lbs of muscle and it has definitely paid off with his snapping. He is built very well and snapping hard.
  • Grant Merka (TX) is snapping with a ton of confidence and snapping, easily, at the D1 level right now. The bigger he gets, the higher up the rankings he goes.
  • Matt Oliveira (NJ) has excellent size and is snapping a great ball right now. He is beginning to really believe in himself and that is a wonderful thing to see.
  • Garrett Stotts (TX) is a thick Long Snapper that snaps with good power and force. He is coming into his own and looking to make a big name for himself in the next couple months and I could easily see it happening.
