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

Recap of the WA Fall Camp (10/23/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Washington on October 23rd, 2016 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from WA, ID, OR, CA & LA all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Matt Baldeck (ID, ’17)! Baldeck was on fire all day long and was throwing some severe heat out in the Northwest. His snaps are VERY powerful and he easily get in the low .7s to high .6s. He dominated the speed competition and almost won the accuracy competition. Confidence is high right now and he is making a solid name for himself across the country. Powerful and thick frame. His victory in WA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can actually watch the finals between Matt Baldeck and Kellen Dyer below from the live feed on the Rubio Long Snapping Periscope.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be CA on October 30th, followed by NC (11/20), TX (12/4), AZ (12/11) and GA (12/18)

Jake Gibson

Top 2017 Long Snappers
Jake Gibson was very solid in WA. His form is excellent and he is nails under pressure. Nothing rattles the kid and he uses all of his body really well to gain some good speed.

Zack Jenkins did really well in WA. Ball is on target and he is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class. Widening out on his stance and his waistline will help a ton. LOTS of upside on Zach.

Eli Jenkins is dripping with potential and I love when he lets the ball fly out of his hands. Really has a good upside.

Cody Clements is a large Long Snapper with a strong frame and tons of potential. Confidence will be huge as we head into Vegas.

Notables: Brock Olive, Calvin Maher and Braden Otto

Kellen Dyer

Kellen Dyer

Kellen Dyer was VERY solid in WA. Ball is accurate and he has some great consistency. Needs to make sure he quickens up his hands and legs. No knee hitch will equal the ball in the .7s. Really impressed with his overall work ethic and attitude.

Spencer Luce is overflowing with potential and could easily dominate his class with more accuracy and consistency. CONFIDENCE is going to be huge for him as we head into VEGAS. This could be off the charts good.

Notable: Grayson Broussard

Top 2019 Long Snappers

JJ Lindsay

JJ Lindsay

JJ Lindsay showed me some great things in WA. Love his form and his overall attitude. Built with long legs and he is already using them well.

Dean Lau is an incredible athlete that destroys all athletic tests I throw his way. MAJOR factor in punt coverage as we move into VEGAS and beyond. Size and strength will be huge for him as he continues through the process.

James Durr showed me a lot of potential. He is a smooth Long Snapper with good upside. Built well and I like his attitude.

Top 2020, 2021 & 2022 Long Snappers

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins has excellent form and showed he could, and should, win a Rubio Long Snapping camp very soon. Kam is an extremely accurate Long Snapper that will continue to get better with more strength and athleticism. Snaps the ball as well as anyone I have seen at his age. Overall speed on the ball and his legs will be key in dominating his class throughout the years.

Cameron Landes has a ton of potential and could stay in the top five of his class for all four years of high school. Built REALLY long with a frame that can put on about fifty pounds over the next couple years. Ball is smooth and accurate. Moves really well on his feet.

Alec Eckert is a very long athlete for the class of 2021. Great frame and dripping with potential. Making sure he works on his flexibility and not dragging the football back will help a ton in the long run. He will be as good as he wants to be with his Long Snapping.

Anna DeCaprio was VERY impressive for her first Rubio Long Snapping camp. She has great explosion and an excellent spiral for her age. Widening out her stance and getting her hips straight will help a ton. Great first camp.
