Coach, Please take some time to listen to your Long Snapper

2015 Spring Rubio bannerCoach…Please allow me to warm up before you want me to snap live in practice. Think about it, would you really have your starting QB sit for 30 minutes and then tell him to throw a perfect 45 yard post? I didn’t think so.

Please take my craft seriously. I know you don’t think much of it, but I do. To me, Long Snapping is a main part of who I am now and who I plan to be in the future.

Please don’t just give me some lineman pads because I am on the line. I need to be able to move my arms. They actually make pads for my position. I swear they do. If you can find money in the booster fund for QB pads, maybe there is some funds for me as well.

Please don’t just rush past my snaps on film. Just like  other players can learn from film, so can I. If you don’t want to watch, maybe just allow me some time to watch on my own. I want to get better, allow me to do so.

Please treat me, and my position, with respect. I deserve it and so does anyone that plays Long Snapper. It is not the easiest thing to do and should be highly respected. If you think I am off on this one, try playing a game without a Long Snapper and see how that works out for you and the team.

Please trust me when I tell you that people actually do get recruited for Long Snapping nowadays. It is not like the old days when colleges just “found someone” on the team to do it. Don’t believe me? Look HERE

Coach, please listen to me.

How a High School Coach Should Deal with a Long Snapper

Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping offers up some quick advice to high school coaches and what they should do with their Long Snapper.

ASK RUBIO – Redshirting in High School? Best Looking on 90210? Potential NFL Long Snappers? Liking Sailer?

Dear Rubio…

1) What are your thoughts about holding back/red shirting a high school student athlete for the sole purposes of giving them an edge athletically against their peers? 2) Also I need your 90210 expertise to settle an argument, Valerie right? (Tiffani Amber Thiessen)
JustStartingOut

-JustStartingOut….
Kelly-Kapowski-Pictures
It would depend on when you hold the athlete back. If it is done sooner in life, I feel that is better. When you get into the high school years, it could really mess with their demeanor as they will be losing a lot of friends at that point. Bottom line, if you are going to do it, do it EARLY.

As for the 90210 question (great one by the way), I have to go with Valerie (Tiffany Amber Theissen). How could I not after her dominant performance as Kelly Kapowski on the hit TV show Saved by the Bell!??!?!? The lady was one of my first crushes (as I have a feeling I speak for millions of other men my age as well that grew up in the 80’s and 90’s)

Dear Rubio….

You have explained to us how you are able to recognized college long snappers out of high schoolers, but what do you see in college snappers to be potential NFL Long snappers? Also, how can a snapper adjust to be a more appealing prospect?
-BGSU Long Snapper

Christian Yount

–BGSU Long Snapper….
There are a couple differences between a college Long Snapper and an NFL Long Snapper: Size (NFL Long Snappers usually are right around the 240+ range), Accuracy (an NFL Long Snapper might not always be the fastest Long Snapper you have ever seen but they should RARELY, and I mean RARELY miss….think two out of 100) and Blocking. The last point, blocking, is a massive aspect that kills a lot of guys chances at the next level because they either never did it in college (thank you spread formation) and can’t get used to it quickly by the pro day. The speed jump from high school to college is quadrupled from college to the NFL. Not being able to keep up with that jump is what kills hopes and dreams of a college Long Snapper trying to make the NFL.

At the Rubio Long Snapping College as well as the NFL Free Agent Camp, we will work on blocking a ton to make sure each Long Snapper is a more appealing prospect.

Dear Rubio….

Sailer and Rubio at UCLADid you like Sailer when you guys played together at UCLA?
-WonderingMomma

-WonderingMomma….
Yes, I actually did BECAUSE he never acted like a “kicker” 🙂 He would get back, do his little step thingy and kick the ball. IF he missed, he would never blame me (not that he could, I was throwing pearls back there) and just go to the next kick. He had very much a lineman attitude and, ironically, used to always hang out with me and the lineman.

Long Snappers came out to TX to attend the Nike TX Fall Camp on November 10th from AR, CA, CO, GA , KS, LA, OK and TX to get the best instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers.

The Last Months of High School

The time of the year when your “friends” that don’t have any plans, try to derail yours.

The time of the year when you worry that you may never see your friends again.

The time of the year when the school day gets longer and longer and longer and…

The time of the year when the sun rises earlier and sets later.

The time of the year when temptation beats on your door.

The time of the year when you would rather be anywhere but sitting in a desk.

The time of the year when when you long to just be outside.

The time of the year when you look around and wonder how different your life will be one year from today.

The time of the year when you wonder if anything will be the same one year from today.

The time of the year when so many are relaxing and taking some time off.

The time of the year when a select few are working their tails off.

The time of the year when the good can become average or great and the great can become good or superb.

The time of the year when your parents have hit your last nerve.

The time of the year when your kid has hit your last nerve.

The time of the year when you want to leave.

The time of the year when you wonder if you are ready for the next step.

The time of the year when you are itching to sprint into the next phase of your life.

The time of the year when you wonder if you are ready for it all.

The last months of high school, you make it what it will be…

The last months of school will forever affect you and your life. 

CHOOSE WISELY and THINK AHEAD

New Avenues for Small Town Athletes

I thought I would share with you an article I wrote the Lewiston Tribune that was published today. Enjoy:

If you are a high school athlete reading this, you live in a small town. It may not be the smallest of towns, but it is a small town nonetheless. Twenty years ago, it would have been extremely tricky for you to get recruited by a college. That is no longer the case.

Recruiting is much different now than it was 20 years ago. Before, it was all on your coach and what he/she could do for you. And, since you are in a small town, a coach would degrade your talent as being just the best of what is available. Sad, but true. With less people, usually comes less talent. That is simple math.

Therefore, the athlete has to prove to the college coach that he/she is not only the best in their small town, but they are also one of the best in the country and that the coach should undoubtedly recruit them for the next level.

Nowadays, with the proper use of technology, athletes can easily expose or “sell” themselves to colleges across the country. No matter if you are from a small town or a big city, the playing field is equal for all athletes on the Web. Technology allows even the smallest-of-town athletes to reach the biggest of city universities – instantly and for free.

Athletes can create a YouTube channel to highlight their games, practices and improvement over their careers. An athlete can create a Facebook and/or Twitter account to get in contact with a coach and send them film.

All of the above is fine and dandy, but if you still aren’t a top-tier athlete you won’t get past hello with the coaches.

Once you have set up your social media outlets to get your recruiting process going in the right direction, you need to let your current coach know that you are serious about playing sports in college. Let them know you have the desire to push yourself to do what it takes to play a sport at the next level. Your coach will also be able to contact coaches on your behalf and give you some insight into the whole recruiting process.

Plus, if you have expressed your desire to the coach and shown you have talent, he/she is undoubtedly going to remember your name if a college comes into their office recruiting another athlete. “Oh yeah, Sally is a great right fielder. You should also check out my pitcher Julie.” Now your name is in the coach’s head. They will ask for film (you will simply send them your YouTube link) and now your recruiting starts to pick up speed.

If you are really serious about your athletic ability, you need to look into a very good personal coach that specializes in your exact talent. A high school coach is good but they have to focus on the whole team and not just one athlete. They will often tend to know a little about a lot, while a specialized coach will know a lot about a little (think one particular position or aspect of the sport). Plus, your personal coach, if he or she has been around the block and has put other athletes into college, will have many contacts as well that can help you out in the recruiting process.

Every college will hold camps during the summer that athletes can attend to learn and prove themselves. These camps are less for learning (too many athletes attending) and are more for tryouts. You do not need to be invited to but it helps if you are so they know who you are going into the camp. You really want to focus on these camps between your junior and senior years. However, I would highly recommend going between sophomore and junior years to get your name in their head and get a trial run of what the camp will entail.

To be invited, simply have your current sports coach contact the school and say they think you should be invited. If your coach isn’t really motivated to help you, contact the school yourself. Give them some simple stats and let them know you are very interested in becoming a _____ (mascot of your choice). You are now in the school’s recruiting database and will now start to receive mail from them on a regular basis. Once you get to the camp, you must dominate.

Remember, an immediate knock on you as an athlete will be that, being from a small town, you aren’t playing against top talent simply because there aren’t as many athletes. Now, at the camp, you will be head-to-head with the actual top talent from all over the country. This is the moment when either you prove you have the ability to be playing with the big dogs or are simply the best of the average.

It is all on your shoulders at this point. Yes, you are an athlete from a small town, but you have set yourself up to be on the big stage.

Do you have the talent to be there?

Can I Change my Mind after a Verbal Commitment?

The high school football recruiting process can be a lengthy one, and you may be thrilled to finally receive an offer to play at one of your top choice schools. It’s common to feel pressured to respond to offers quickly, and in many cases, you’ll do this by making a verbal commitment. This is when you tell the recruiter or coach that you are planning to play at their school. However, this verbal commitment is not a binding one. The only binding commitment is signing a written contract.

There are some cases when you may want to change your decision after making a verbal commitment. Maybe your dream school came back with a surprise offer that you would rather accept. Or perhaps the scholarship you thought you were getting from the school you made a verbal commitment to wasn’t as generous as you first thought. After making your verbal commitment, it’s important to do your research and make sure this is the school you actually want to go to. If you decide otherwise, politely let the school know you have changed your mind and will be pursuing other options next year.

Contact Rubio Long Snapping for more information on Verbal Commitments.

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.

Rubio Long Snapper Scott Shockley Needs YOU!

Those of you that have been with me for awhile know about Scott Shockley. Scott is a 2012 Rubio Long Snapper from GA. You can see video of him here from 2011….

 

That was his second camp and you can tell he was definitely headed in the right direction. Long, lean and strong.  Bright future to say the least.

Right after that camp, Scott found out he had cancer. He went from the brightest of futures to not knowing what was going to happen next. As I type this, I can’t help but break down when I think of it all and how difficult it must be for him and his parents.

To clarify, Shockley is an 18-year old Long Snapper and three sport athlete who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in his right femur in May 2011. He underwent surgery to the replace the diseased bone with a titanium endoprosthesis and eight months of chemotherapy treatments. Scott was in remission until September 2012 when the cancer returned in his lungs. He has undergone additional chemotherapy treatments and one lung surgery to remove some of the tumors and part of his left lung. He will be starting a new chemotherapy regimen in hopes of shrinking the remaining tumors so they can be surgically removed. Scott needs everyone’s prayers and support as he continues to fight this battle.

You know I have spoken with you before about Scott in this blog in which I wrote…

Q: Who is the toughest Long Snapper you have worked with?
A: Tough one. Rubio Long Snapper Carson Tinker of Alabama is a solid choice as he has overcome a ton this past year but I am going to go with Rubio Long Snapper Scott Shockley. Scott is a 2012 Long Snapper from GA that, one year ago, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma. He has gone through MANY surgeries in one short year and is continuing to go head to head with chemo. Kid came straight from the hospital to my GA camp this weekend to say hello to me and the guys. He is a soldier and everyone needs to keep him in their thoughts.

SCOTT IS HAVING SOME TROUBLES, big troubles, as you can imagine, and I want you all to get involved IMMEDIATELY. His parents have created a blog, so to speak, that automatically sends out updates to those that register. I want you to register and I want you to do it NOW. I want you to find it in your heart to spray out to Shockley and let him know that you are with him. I want you to keep up with him. I want him, and his parents, to know they are not alone through this extremely trying time in their lives.

Here is what I need you to do. Go to: http://www.carepages.com/signup  and fill out the information and create a password. Once you are a member, go to visit on care pages. Scott’s care page website name is shocman17atl. Enter it and takes you to his webpage.

Let’s show Shockley what being part of the Rubio Long Snapping family is really all about….

Q & A about High School Football Recruiting

As soon as the football season begins to come to an end, questions start to really creep into a recruit, and their parents’, heads. To begin, if you are a Long Snapper, it is still very early in the recruiting process. Many things can happen from now until you actually step foot on a college campus to start your career. Here are some top questions I am getting through email, text, Twitter, Facebook and even Instagram.

1. Is it me or has recruiting been slow this Fall?
– You are correct and it (recruiting) is always slow in the fall. I call it the “First Thing’s First” period of time. College coaches are obviously coaching during the football season and they are spending a massive amount of time doing so with their current team. Up until about late November, they are more worried about what their current team is doing instead of what their future team will be doing. Therefore, when late November rolls around, most coaches have a pretty good idea whether or not their current team is phenomenal or if their current team is pretty much out of the picture and they can start recruiting next year’s crop of talent. Bottom line, if you are a solid recruit, get ready for a wild ride.

2. Should I transfer since my coach just got fired for not winning?
– Absolutely not! I know you didn’t choose your school based on the coach, so that shouldn’t even matter. Unless you have a massive issue (think Penn St.), you will have to sit out a year and won’t be able to play right away. Therefore, you are asking a future school to pick you up, scholarship you and wait. All the while, when they most likely already have a current athlete on scholarship within your position. Coaches are not into “burning” two scholarships on the same position, especially for a specialist. Think about it, would you pay for a car that you aren’t using? Didn’t think so and neither would the coaches.

3. I have several schools that are recruiting me now and I know many others will be coming on board, should I apply to all of them since application deadlines are right around the corner?
– Absolutely not UNLESS you are CERTAIN you can get in on your own academically and without athletic assistance. It is easier for a school to recruit you later in the process, even after the application deadline, and get you into school IF you have not already been denied admittance. If you have already been denied, they have to pull some MAJOR strings to get you in and they hate doing that unless you’re the stud of all studs.

4. Is it a problem if a school starts to recruit me after the application deadline and I didn’t apply to their school?
– Nope. It doesn’t matter. They (the coach) will literally walk your application to the admissions office and have it expedited through the process. The whole operation can easily take less than a day.

5. If a coach wants my film, how should I get it to him? DVD or online? 
– A couple years ago, I would have said both, but today, I am heavily leaning towards simply online. Online is faster, quicker, it won’t get lost, they don’t have to carry it and they can see it anywhere, immediately, if they have their cell or iPad (which is everywhere they are). And, when creating your online highlight tape, be sure to use YouTube and not any other video sharing services. I continue to hear coaches say they only want YouTube since there is NEVER a problem with it’s service.
