MAJOR Positive Vibes Needed for Rubio Long Snapper Gabriel Miller

For the past couple of weeks, I have been communicating back and forth with Rubio Long Snapper Gabriel Miller of Nebraska and his mother. Gabe tweaked his back prior to season and was having some issues. I honestly thought it would pass with some good rest, it didn’t.

This morning, Miller is having major back surgery (5:30 am pst) and it will last for several hours. He will be having a lumbar laminectomy with a spinal fusion. He has an exposed nerve that is causing numbness and now some hamstring weakening.

Bottom line, I want the Rubio Long Snapping family to pull together and help Gabe out through this ordeal. You can shoot him a message on Twitter at @GabeMiller_LS or even mail him a quick note at 2021 G Street, Lincoln, NE. 68510.

Gabe, and his family, need us all right now. Any of you that know Gabe, know he is always with a smile and I don’t want today, or the following weeks, to be any different.

Nike Spring Camp in IL – Recap

Long Snappers came out to IL on Sunday, March 17th from KY, MO, MN, KS, OH, IL, CT, IN, MI, IA and NY to get the best instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. The talent was the best I have seen this fall in one location. The overall winner of the camp was Tommy Sullivan (IL, ’14). Tommy has improved a great deal since his first camp with Rubio Long Snapping. He has transformed his body and his form is excellent. Sky is the limit for this Midwest Long Snapper.

Other Long Snappers that were exceptional throughout the day were….

2013 

Miller, Gabriel

Miller was tremendous all day in IL

  • Gabriel Miller  (IN) – This Nebraska commit left no doubt the Huskers made a great decision in offering him a full scholarship. Miller ended up losing the entire competition by about a quarter of an inch. He is definitely ready for the next level.
  • Sean Corcoran (IL) – He has really put some good size on and his snapping with confidence. Definitely making a play to really push for the starting spot next year at Penn St. Looked the most solid I have seen him….and I have seen him many times.
Freeze, Patrick

Freeze was dominant all day in IL

2014 

  • Patrick Freeze (IN) – This massive Long Snapper was amazing all day. He continually impressed me with his terrific form, hard snaps and confidence. If he snaps like he did in IL when he gets to Vegas, there is NO DOUBT he makes EVENT ELITE. Keep a very close eye on Freeze.
  • Wyatt Pfeifer (OH) – Just continues to improve and improve. Body is thick, strong and solid. His form is excellent and he is snapping as though he knows he is the best out there. Love that attitude when you can back it up…he can back it up.
  • Bronson Bruneau (MN) – Built like a college tight end and snaps like a college Long Snapper. Massive frame that could easily put on another 40 lbs. Huge upside on Bruneau. Dripping with possibilities.
  • Reid Buckingham (KS) – Easily one of the best Long Snappers in his class and could easily be the best IF he gets set. Tons of upside on this very smooth Long Snapper. Great attitude.
  • Nate Hawkins (OH) – Is a very athletic Long Snapper that never stops getting better. Slow and steady, he continues to climb the rankings. Great personality and very coachable.
  • Seth Combs (IL) – A Long Snapper with excellent form that snaps the ball very hard. Needs size to really push for top spots. Potential.
McCullough, Liam

Liam was throwing heat all day in IL.

2015

  • Liam McCullough (OH) – He proved, yet again, he is the best in his class. He has put on some great weight and looks different, in a good way, than he did just a couple months ago in Vegas. Liam easily snaps college speeds now and, when he gets through, he never misses. Amazing talent for his age. 
  • Nick Janicki (IL) – Might be the most athletic Long Snapper in his class. Improving rapidly and could easily make a play for the top Long Snapper in his class.
  • Jake Knight  (MI) – He has D1 size as a sophomore and is close to snapping a D1 ball as well. Powerful Long Snapper with tons of potential. Keep an eye on him.
  • Ben Makowski (IN) – Very thick Long Snapper oozing potential. Very close to being “there” and when he gets there, the rest of his class will suffer.
  • Hunter Varga (IL) – Has really been working on his form and it is paying off. He snaps a smooth ball and will be as good as he wants to be. Snapping hard will be key for Varga.
  • Jackson Mahorney (KY) – Very smooth Long Snapper with great form. The harder he snaps, the better he will be. Built thick and strong.

2016 and Beyond…

Walsh, Ryan

Walsh is well beyond his years with his Long Snapping.

  • Ryan Walsh (IL) – Amazing talent for his age (2018). Form is exceptional and he uses all of his body when he snaps. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be. Handles pressure well.
  • Nate Durham (IL) – Is really impressing me and I almost shocked he is only a 2017. Snaps with great form and solid speed. Great attitude.
  • John Shannon (IL) – Was excellent all day for his first Rubio Long Snapping camp. This freshman has a very bright future with his Long Snapping.

Other notables from the camp in IL: Jackson Mahorney, Hayden Grover, Joseph Kramer, Samuel Wilson, Brandon Wolf, Matt Combs, Seth Combs, Clay Chasteen and Jake Hess.

Rubio Long Snapping will continue it’s Nike Spring tour on Saturday, April 13th in Charlotte, NC. That camp will be followed by camps in GA and CA all leading up to the 11th Annual National Kicking and Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas on May 4-5, 2013!

National Signing Day 2013 – Rubio Long Snapping Dominates

National College Signing Day for 2013 has concluded and once again Rubio Long Snapping is in the middle of the action.  Alabama, USC, Nebraska, and Michigan top the list of schools that have received commitments from Rubio Long Snappers.

6′ 2″ 241 lb. Cole Mazza from Bakersfield, CA committed to the Crimson Tide as one of 25 commitments to the nation’s number one college football program.  Originally committed to UCLA Mazza de-committed from the Bruins when it became clear that he was the number one long snapper prospect for D1 college football programs.  Chris Rubio isn’t surprised noting in an interview with Alabama website AL.com that “I can honestly say I have never seen such an overall dominant performance by a long snapper.  There was no doubt he was the best in the country. Mazza is as good, if not better, than advertised. If he continues at this pace with his snapping and his attitude, there is no telling how far he can go.”

Other promising Rubio Long Snapping alumni include Zach Smith to USC, Chase Domiguez to Utah, Gabriel Miller to Nebraska, Scott Sypniewski to Michigan. Brendan Turelli to Wyoming, Mike Lizanich to Tulane and Tucker Estheridge to Louisiana Tech.  In all thirty two Rubio Long Snapping alumni committed to major college football programs reaffirming that when it comes to Long Snapping Rubio leads the pack.  Click HERE for the complete list and visit rubiolongsnapping.com for more details on upcoming camps and the value of being a talented high school Long Snapper.

2012 Herbalife 24 High School Football Awards

This past weekend was the Herbalife 24 Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio Awards for top high school Placekicker and Long Snapper. Three kickers and three long snappers were brought into L.A. Live for the awards show. The three finalists for the Chris Sailer Award for top Placekicker were Austin Rehkow (WA, ’13), Kevin Robledo (CA, ’15) and Wyatt Schmidt (MN, ’13). The three finalists for the Chris Rubio Award for top Long Snapper were Cole Mazza (CA, ’13), Gabriel Miller (IN, ’13) and Scott Sypniewski (IL, ’13).

Wyatt Schmidt & Cole MazzaThe weekend started off with the finalists that were flown into LAX being picked up in limos and driven to the JW Marriott. Once there, they, and a guest of their choice, relaxed in their rooms and waited for dinner at the ESPN Zone. The first night’s dinner was casual with everyone getting to know one another and to finally see the trophies they worked so hard to hopefully take home the next day.

Saturday started off with a breakfast at the Herbalife building with a presentation on nutrition and supplements. Following the breakfast, the finalists, along with Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio, were driven in a limo to Saddle Ranch restaurant on Sunset Blvd. Needless to say, they ate and ate and ate some more. At 6:00 pm, the Awards show officially started in the Herbalife building at L.A. Live. Everyone in attendance was formally dressed, looking sharp as the tension filled the air.

Master of Ceremonies Wayne Cook of Fox Sports West did a tremendous job as he brought up guest speakers and conducted interviews with the finalists on stage. After much adieu, the winner of the Chris Rubio Award for top high school Long Snapper in the country was presented to Cole Mazza and the winner of the top high school Placekicker in the country was presented to Wyatt Schmidt!

Meet The TOP 12

Going to Vegas in January for underclassmen Long Snappers means several things: seeing what all of the commotion is about, doing your absolute best, getting your ranking solidified, watching in awe at the top seniors that you have read so much about and, of course, making the exclusive TOP 12 list! The TOP 12 is chosen from underclassmen in January and they are simply the best of the best in January. They are the ones that snap the hardest, the most accurate, have the best blocking and are able to handle the pressure of the entire weekend. You make this list and you are on way to greatness….if you keep working as hard and smart as you did to make it. 
 
The TOP 12 Long Snappers of January will be listed below. They are invited to exclusive TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp this summer. You are only allowed to attend this camp if you prove yourself at one of our Vegas Events (January or May). Therefore, in May, I will be choosing the EVENT ELITE. They will be the best of the best in May and combine with the TOP 12 during the summer for the invite only camp. Some simply aren’t ready for January Vegas and need May to make a name for themselves. This happens. I know it. One particular instance would be Jonathan Weeks. He came in January, was not ready, worked his tail off and came back to dominate May. FYI: Jonathan Weeks in now doing this for his job. Side note: after reading his bio on that page, try to figure out what special teams camp the coach found out about him:)
 
Think about this….come this summer…will you be reading daily about the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp this summer or will you be participating? MAKE IT HAPPEN. ENOUGH EXCUSES. See you in May. PROVE YOURSELF!!!

Dinner with one person: My grandma. She never had the chance to see snap. Also she loved Vegas.
Why am I the best Long Snapper in the country: I continue to train and improve every day.  I realize that long snapping is a selfless position.  It requires self- motivation and dedication.  I work countless hours on my snapping technique.  In college, I know how special it is to have the opportunity to be a long snapper.  Most times, during practice, we are left alone to practice while the rest of the team goes through their offensive and defensive practice.  I understand this responsibility and embrace it.  I will be the hardest worker on the team.

What is one unique quality about myself: I have dedicated myself to training.  During the week, I snap at 5:15am at Off the Bench (an indoor training center in Ottawa, IL) for 45 minutes.  After school, I drive 50 miles, each way and work out 60-90 minutes at Extreme Speed.  Extreme Speed is an elite training center owned and operated by 2 former College/NFL players, Tavian Banks and Kevin Kasper.
