Recap of the AZ Spring Camp (4/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to AZ on April 9, 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 Illinois on April 23 and Georgia on April 30th. The Georgia Camp will wrap up the Spring regional camp schedule and lead right in to Vegas 30 on May 13-14. 

This was the fifth 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

Long Snappers from AZ, TX, ID, NM, CO, CA, NE, NV all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping. 

Champion Ross Reiter with Staff Members John Finch and Matt Wigley

The overall camp champion was Ross Reiter! Ross completely dominated the entire day and became the first Rubio Long Snapper to win the speed and RSI portions of any regional camp! He broke the RSI record with an astonishing 65.22! Reiter is a machine and colleges should look at him for his snapping ability and, more importantly, his work ethic and personality. He will be an asset on and off the field for a college coach. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

The finalists, six Long Snappers with the top RSI’s, featured Ross Reiter, Wyatt Rech, A.J. Laux, Austin Riggs, Dustin Inness, and Ethan Hudak. 

Top 2017/JUCO Long Snappers

CJ Shrimpf

CJ Schrimpf is a thick snapper from AZ and snapped the ball well all day. He was easily one of the most confident snappers at the camp and could potentially compete for a starting spot at the next level. 

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Austin Riggs

Austin Riggs might have the most upside of any long snapper in the Class of 2018. He has a tremendous frame and snaps a consistent smooth ball. He isn’t far off from shooting up the rankings in his class and I think he should compete for a Top 12 invite at Vegas 30 in May.

Morgan White is a powerful snapper that will pass any eyeball test for college coaches. He nearly won the speed competition in AZ and was consistently snapping the ball in the high .6s as the day progressed. 

Derek Hahn was one of the more accurate and all around consistent snappers at the camp. He has tremendous form and the work he’s put in privately with Rubio Long Snapping instructor Gabe Miller really showed.

Hunter Burson is a smooth and consistent Long Snapper with good upside. Body is strong with room to grow and he is smart. Great kid.

Notables: J.J. Lord, Wyatt Rech

Top 2019 Long Snappers:

Ethan Hudak

Ethan Hudak stood out as the top 2019 snapper at the AZ camp. He was extremely consistent all day long and advanced to the finals of both the speed and RSI portions of the afternoon. Tremendous upside.

Notables: Dustin Inness, John Farris

Top 2020 and Beyond Long Snappers

AJ Laux

A.J. Laux already looks the part of a college snapper. He has an outstanding frame that college coaches will love and when he get’s hot he’s tough to beat. He snaps with tremendous confidence for someone his age.

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on December 4th, 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 TX, LA, AR, OK, NM, IL, MS, MI, AL & KS all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

CHAMPION JAKE PAGEL!!!

CHAMPION JAKE PAGEL!!!

The overall camp champion was Jake Pagel. Pagel left no doubt that he is easily one of the top Long Snappers in the country. His ball is VERY fast and he can catch a serious groove to dominate. He was one of only about two Long Snappers that has been crowned champion by winning BOTH the speed and accuracy competition. His victory in TX earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between Jake Pagel and John Raines below…

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be AZ (12/11) and GA (12/18)

Top 2017 Long Snappers

drew-wise6289

Drew Wise

Drew Wise was on fire all day long and was actually my horse to win the whole thing. His snaps are very fast and tight. Ball just sticks to the punter’s hands when he catches a snap from Drew. He has excellent size and a tremendous attitude. College coaches should take a very hard look at Drew!

Noah Caldwell looked impressive in TX. Snaps were solid and had good speed. I really liked how smooth and relaxed he was throughout all the day.

John Davis moved well on his feet and was really accurate with his snaps all day. Locking down his spiral and snapping full speed puts him over the top.

Chris Clore is really getting his body in great shop and snapping with good speed and confidence. Locking down his spiral will move him way up.

Jarrod Jacobson has a great frame and form. Uses his body well and gets very good speed on the ball

Caleb Cantrell snaps well under pressure and is very accurate!

Steven Taylor did really well in TX. Ball is VERY smooth and he can easily be one of the most accurate Long Snappers in the country. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Taylor go very far in the finals at VEGAS XXIX.

Hunter Thiem is a very raw Long Snapper with a lot of potential. He moves well on his feet and is built well.

Notables: Justyce Hankins and Joe Smith

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Zach Edwards

Zach Edwards

Zach Edwards was tremendous out in TX. Kid is a PURE athlete that might have the fastest snaps in the country. Zach’s snaps absolutely rocket back to the punter to the point of almost looking fake. He could take the top spot in the country at VEGAS XXIX.

Ron Gaines was very solid in TX. Large Long Snapper with footwork that is definitely improving. Love to see him focus on continuing to improve his athleticism and making sure he is just a tad quicker out of the gate to speed up the overall snap speed.

John Raines was great all day. Looked very polished and was snapping with a good amount of confidence. Made it to the finals and could have easily taken home the championship.

Karsten Battles is absolutely dripping with potential and could easily be one of the top kids in his class. Great frame and he can rip the ball back to the punter. Moves well on his feet. This kid literally did not miss getting points on The Rubio Target….INCREDIBLE!!!

Evan Gibson looked very solid in TX. He is a really accurate Long Snapper that can catch a groove. Consistent and smooth.

Tre Rubio is coming along nicely and is always improving. Rubio (no relation) has some very quick hands that really get the ball out of the gate well.

Grayson Yeager is dripping with potential and could easily fight for a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS XXIX. Great frame and he snaps a smooth ball.

Chandler Moses is a strong Long Snapper with great upside. Raw and can be a top kid in his class…..easily. Will be fun to watch him compete at VEGAS XXIX.

Stephen Elmore handles pressure really well and has solid accuracy.

Notables: Hunter Burson, Dillon Hayes, Cameron Harris, Evan Jennings, Turner Pallissard, Tyler Springer,

Top 2019 Long Snappers

hayden-hood7288

Hayden Hood

Hayden Hood left no doubt he was the best 2019 Long Snapper at the TX camp. He moves really well on his feet and is a true athlete. He can really rip the ball back to the punter with times in the low .7s at times. Consistency of speed will be a major thing I am looking for at VEGAS XXIX.

Luke Rizzo is an athletic Long Snapper with good, raw power. Snapping with confidence will make him dominate at VEGAS XXIX.

Landon Sleeper is a strong and consistent Long Snapper with good potential and a great attitude.

Notables: Chad Wolf, Max Murry, Izeya Floyd, John Farris, Ross Arroyo

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….

Ethan Wells

Ethan Wells

Ethan Wells was excellent all day in TX. He is a very consistent Long Snapper with great explosion and the ability to get the ball in the low .80s. I really like his attitude and the way he snaps the ball. Ethan could easily take the top spot in his class with a good performance at VEGAS XXIX.

Blake Hooker has great consistency and I like his attitude. Strength and power will help him a ton at VEGAS XXIX and beyond.

Phillip Bourque looked good with solid consistency and nice form.

Haydon Wiginton has great form for his age and I like the length of his frame.

JT Sleeper is big, powerful and oozing with potential.

Zachary Clore is overflowing with potential. He is built VERY long and already has some great form. Keep an eye out for Clore over the next couple of years.

Recap of the TX Summer Camp (7/7/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on July 7th, 2016 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be back in Texas on December 4th. You can register for that event HERE.

Long Snappers from TX, LA, MS, SC, KS, OK & NM all traveled to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure drew-wise6289possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was DREW WISE (KS, ’17)! Drew was absolutely on fire all day long and was actually my horse going into the finals. Unlike many before him, the pressure of being “chosen” as the horse did not impact him and he was dominant. He barely lost the accuracy portion, came back to win the speed competition and was nails in the overall. He has great size and snaps a D1 ball right now. Consistency will be huge for him as we head into the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE camp!

2017

jake-pagel6287Jake Pagel (TX) had a good ending to the camp. He has some of the quickest hands you will see in his class and the ball rockets back to the punter. Body is thick and he can hover in the high .6s for punts.

Caleb Cantrell (TX) was excellent all day long. He has some very quick hands and the ball really rips back to the punter. Love to see some more size on him and completely lock down the spiral. He is a very solid Long Snapper.

Reeves Blankenship (LA) had waves of brilliance in TX. When he is on, he is REALLY on. Incredible size and I love the upside on this kid from LA. Keep a very close eye on him. It is all about to click for Reeves.

Joseph Cotton (AZ) was solid in TX. Built long and has a frame that will be incredible in college. Ball can pop back to the punter. Needs to focus on not dragging the ball and making sure he is using all of his lower to get more consistent speed on the ball. Major upside on Joe.

NOTABLES: Noah Caldwell, Steven Taylor, Dominic Brocato, Jarrod Jacobson, Justyce Hankins

2018

evan-gibson6264Evan Gibson (LA) had a great day in TX. Body is strong and he is getting bigger. Hovers right in the low .8s but it is all starting to click for him now. Keep a very close eye on Evan as we get close to VEGAS XXIX.

Hunter Burson (NM) has good form and I like his attitude. He is almost there. Listens well and is coming along nicely. He can do this.

John Raines (MS) has seemed to have found his spiral and that is going to help a lot. His hands are quick and the ball seems to just appear to the punter. Good upside.

Dillon Hayes (MS) has excellent form and is coachable. Uses his whole body well and will dominate with more confidence.

Tre Rubio (TX) has improved a ton over the past year and looks to just keep heading up. Body is getting stronger and his ball can hover in the high .7s. More athleticism and power will move him him up even more.

Karsten Battles (TX) can pass an eyeball test from 50 yards away and is absolutely dripping with potential. Very athletic and built well. CONSISTENCY will be key for Battles moving up by XXIX.

Notables: Braden Thibodeaux, Austin Ortega, Chris Logan

2019hayden-hood7288

Hayden Hood (TX) quickly separated himself to show the TX camp that he was, by far, the best 2019 Long Snapper in attendance. Kid can fly downfield and is a definite factor in punt coverage. Hips are very solid. Form is coming along nicely and he is headed toward growth. Watch him.

Nate McCormack (TX) handles pressure very well and has great form. Starting to grow which is going to be great for him but bad for the rest of his class. Great attitude.

2020

IMG_0526Blake Hooker (TX) has been with Rubio Long Snapping for quite some time and it is quite apparent. Form is excellent and he is already starting to separate himself from the pack. Great attitude and listens well.
