Recap of the IL Summer Camp (7/9/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on July 9th, 2018 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, GA, IL, SC (Top Gun Camp), CA (College, TOP 12, Underclassmen Invitational) and TX!

Long Snappers from KS, IL, GA WA, CA, AZ, TN, MO, IN, OH, MN & MI all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The champion of the camp was David Boan (2020, IL). David was actually the speed AND overall champion with powerful snaps and getting hot at the right time. Boan grows by the hour and has a very smooth snapping motion where his ball tends to pick up speed along the way. Tremendous talent with great potential.

The finals round matchups were Jackson Worthen (53.25), David Boan (53.35), Caden Bolz (50.67), Brad George (46.67), Luke Elmore (37.04), Jaden Mueller (33.33).  You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo

Jude Pedrozo was tremendous out in IL with extremely smooth snaps, a solid body and athleticism that shows me he can be a true factor on the punt coverage team. Form is good and the harder he snaps, the better he looks on the field.

Caden Bolz came out from KS and left no doubt he is one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in the country. Strong based, good balance and has the ability to rip the ball back to the punter. Should be fun with him at the TOP 12 camp.

Brad George has good form and snaps a crisp, powerful ball back to the punter. Very consistent Long Snapper. Each snap looks the same over and over. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for him.

Aidan Hall was moving well on his feet and was outstanding when he led with his elbows and snapped with full power.

Joey Wilson is very athletic and can get the ball out of the gate quickly. Great potential.

Jack Schmitz is extremely athletic, has a great frame and is dripping with potential

Nathan Tokar is thick and powerful with a smooth snapping motion. Getting his eyes through will help a ton to make him ready for the next level.

Notables: Graham Finklea, Michael Cronin, Andrew Downs, Collin Kinniry, Charlie Sullivan

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

David Boan

David Boan was the overall champion of the camp and crushed it all day long. Massive frame that will be able to put some excellent weight on over the next couple of days.

Christo Kelly has a great, thick frame and snaps the ball with solid power. Tight spiral and when he is on, he is very on. Kid is a stud.

Jackson Worthen was very smooth and snapping with great power throughout his whole body. His form is absolutely gorgeous.

Cody White was snapping pearls all day and his ball gets faster every time I see him. Powerful Long Snapper

Will Halkyard might be the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. It is almost poetic to watch him snap the ball.

Jared Lawrence came out and was very impressive with snap speeds and attitude.

Tom O’Keefe is a big Long Snapper with a tight spiral and great upside.

Notables: Nelson Pipes, Hunter Schrock,

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker

Nick Walker looked outstanding in IL. Has the frame of a college Long Snapper right now and he still has several years of high school left. Ball is easily under .80. The sky is the limit for Nick.

Andrew Boan is built long with a frame that can put on some good weight over the next couple of years. Uses all of his whole body extremely well and is ball is very fast for his size.

Sam Long was very impressive in IL with a great frame and solid snaps.

Isaiah Hayse came out to IL and looked very sharp for his first camp. Great frame and upside.

Guillemette, Rubio and Beattie

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on April 7th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Long Snappers from 15 states and two countries all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The Subway Alum and Rubio

For even more exposure, The Subway Alum prep recruiting site came out to get some interviews, take some photos and see all about the Rubio Long Snapping camp in IL.

The overall champions of the camp were Adam Guillemette (speed) and Brendan Beattie (overall). Beattie was the overall winner of the camp and did great all day. In the finals, he got very hot and only missed by inches a couple times. Ball is quick and he is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He absolutely crushed the agility section of the camp. The determination on this kid is off the charts. Really impressed with Beattie all day long in IL!

Recap of the IL Summer Camp (7/13/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on July 13th, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Long Snappers from IL, NE, MS, IA, OH, KS, LA, IN, MO, KY, OR & WI all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

For the overall RSI Scores from the IL Camp, please go HERE

Overall Champion Jude Pedrozo and Speed Champion Pat Szczesniak

The overall champion of the camp was Jude Pedrozo. Jude is no stranger to winning at Rubio Long Snapping Camps as he is a former VEGAS winner and is always hovering around the finals. Very good body, great attitude and the ability to handle pressure really well make Jude one of the best in his class.

The finals were between Ross Hinders (60.87), Brendan Beattie (60.81), Charlie Gambs (45.83), Derek Hahn (28.57), Jude Pedrozo (24.42) & George Walsh (23.08). The full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Michael Vinson had a great day in IL. He has some good size, moves pretty darn well on his feet and can snap a nice ball that can hit in the low .7s. Listens well and is very coachable. Excellent attitude and Vinson is going to make his college coach really happy in the next couple of years.

Ross Hinders throws some severe heat and flies down the field. No doubt he will be a factor on the punt coverage team. Ball is really powerful and his upside is off the charts.

Derek Hahn out of Nebraska continues to improve greatly. He did really well in IL and made it all the way to the finals. He was only a couple of inches away from going very far into the finals brackets. Great attitude and always getting better.

Levi McKinney showed great athleticism and can hover in the .7s. Really like his upside and attitude.

Notables: Alex Rosenbaum, Ryan Jurczak, Nathan Slusarski

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo was excellent all day. His personality is off the charts and will be a leader on and off the field. Body is strong and he can snap a powerful ball. Accuracy and consistency are solid. Moves well on his feet. Great upside.

Patrick Szczesniak was only able to perform in half the camp due to prior commitment but left no doubt in half time time that he has the ability to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. He should be very focused on the TOP 12 Camp next year.

Brendan Beattie throws some severe heat and hovers in the low. 7s. His ball really powers back to the punter. He moves like a cheetah and will definitely be a factor on the punt coverage team.

Charlie Gambs made it deep into the final and had a great day in IL. Love his attitude and upside. Very smooth Long Snapper

Brad George is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. George snaps a really fast ball that is consistently in the mid to low .7s. Strong Long Snapper.

Samuel Wiesbrook is tall drink of water with excellent footwork and great upside. Ball is accurate and very consistent.

David O’Keefe showed tremendous upside and a smooth, consistent snap. The potential on this kid is off the charts.

Ethan Warren is strong, athletic and consistent with his snapping.

Michael Wojciechowski is very smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that will just get better and better as he gets bigger and stronger.

Nathan Tokar is really doing well in transforming his body and it is impacting his snapping in a great way.

Tyler Shaw was very impressive in IL was great snap speeds and a strong frame. Great upside.

Notables: George Walsh, Aidan Hall, Owen Hall, Collin Kinniry, Thomas Peterson, Joey Wilson

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Christo Kelly was excellent in IL. He has an excellent and athletic frame that moved very well all over the field. Ball is very quick for his age with times in the mid to low .7s. He has the ability to be one of the best in his class and should definitely focus on the TOP 12 Camp this January.

Jackson Worthen has some of the best form in the country and is close to greatness. Very excited to see him lock down his consistency and continuing to grow. Quiet and he listens really well.

Robert McCrory is a big framed Long Snapper with quick hands that can get the  ball in the low .8s.

Zachary Pitsenberger was impressive in the way he handled pressure and moved on his feet.

Jesse Smith was one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class with accurate snaps in the mid to low .8s.

Mick Bastuga has good form, a great attitude and a really smooth snap. Getting bigger and stronger along with really driving his upper body through will greatly increase his overall speed on the ball.

Notables: Jaden Mueller

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker is a 2021 Long Snapper that could probably start for most high school varsity teams right now. His ball is quick and he can get it into the .7s and he is just going into his freshman year!

Sam Long is big, strong and moved really well on his feet.

RSI Scores from the IL Summer Camp

Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair.

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 90 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). The highest I have ever encountered is a 86.96 by Karsten Battles! The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid.

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush)

RSI Score Comparisons Between CA, NC, WA, TX, AZ, NJ & IL

As you know by reading this blog, Rubio Long Snapping has adjusted the testing aspect of all regional camps this spring with the “introduction” of the RSI. I put “introduction” in quotes because RSI has been around for MANY years at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS Events but has just recently been worked into the regional camps to add continuity and to track the Long Snappers and their improvement.

For the first Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA, the RSI scores are shown here, the NC RSI scores are shown here, the WA RSI scores are here, the TX RSI scores are shown here, the AZ RSI scores are shown here , the NJ scores are shown here and IL are here. Now that seven camps have concluded, here are  the comparisons and contrasts between the geographical areas and their Long Snappers. Only a couple of spring camps left to knock AZ off the top of the mountain…sorry CA, you held the title for some time but AZ has it now!

RSI Scores from the IL Spring Camp


Starting this spring, all Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will now be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair. 

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend.  Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 80 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). I believe the highest I have ever encountered is a 65.22 by Ross Reiter at The Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in AZ. The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid. 

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

  • Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
  • Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
  • Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
  • Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
  • Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
  • Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
  • Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
  • Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush) If you have ever been to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Event, you know that one of the main parts of competition day is when each Long Snapper gets tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.

Recap of the IL Spring Camp (4/2)

ChicagoRubio Long Snapping traveled to IL  on April 2nd for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from MO, IN, OH, PA, WI, MI, NJ, IA, MS, CA, KY, AL & IL to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Noah Rodriguez-Trammel (CA, ’17)! Noah came all the way out from CA and truly made the trip count. He is a massive Long Snapper that can pass an eyeball test quickly and hits in The Rubio Zone all the time. Very accurate Long Snapper with good speed that handles pressure well. Winning is becoming common for Noah as he also recently won a camp in CA!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Riley John

Riley John

Riley John was the top 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He was snapping in the high to mid .7s all day and has gradually improved every single time I see him at a camp. He is going to be a very good pickup for a college. I really like his attitude and he is snapping a college ball right now.

  • Phillip Thomas looked good in IL. Thick and strong Long Snapper with great form and a very smooth ball. The more he trusts his form and just lets the ball fly, he will be better in the long run.
  • Matt Lewis is a true athlete that can fly downfield. Ball is smooth.
  • Ben Dillion was snapping some good heat in IL. Form is good and he has upside.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Joe Calcagno

Joe Calcagno

Joe Calcagno was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He is a large, strong Long Snapper with great form and lots of power. Ball can get into the high .6s and his hands are very quick. Calcagno is looking very solid and everyone should keep an eye on him at XXVIII in May.

  • Nate Durham was impressive with his accuracy and speed. Very good attitude.
  • Shiloh Mast uses his whole body very well and can catch a groove.
  • Marshall Coluzzi continues to be on the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in his class.
  • Trevor Dhabalt was throwing absolute fire in IL. His snap JUMPS out of the gate very QUICKLY.
  • Dylan Castro is flat out smooth and fun to watch snap. Great ball
  • Cole Stewart will be a completely dominant Rubio Long Snapper when he explodes at the beginning of the process instead of gliding into it. Kid is going to be excellent.
  • Matt Baldeck can be one of the best in his class if he just gets set. Ball is VERY powerful.
  • John Davis looked impressive and is definitely showing he can snap at the next level.
  • Chaz Satnan is a monster of a man and once he locks down his accuracy, he will move way up. Potential is off the charts.
  • Zach Appio is gaining confidence and building steam as we head into XXVIII in May. Great attitude.

Notables: Jackson Bond, Jack Darby, Zach Appio, Kyle Eckelberg, Will Patton

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Ross Hinders

Ross Hinders

Ross Hinders was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. His consistency is off the charts. He is like watching a pitching machine out there. Every snap is the same. Speed is good and he is getting bigger by the hour.

  • Roen McCullough is a beast of a man and can snap major heat when he is on. Consistency of speed and handling pressure will be big things I am looking for at XXVIII in May. Major upside.
  • Jack Hadley has been on the camp circuit with Rubio Long Snapping and it is paying off big time. Kid is coming along VERY nicely and wouldn’t surprise me to see him battle for a spot on the EVENT ELITE. Big man with great power. It’s all starting to come together.
  • Ronald Gaines looked very sharp in IL. Massive man with great form. Getting his whole body and power to go back will help a ton. Good attitude.
  • John Raines is VERY accurate and consistent. Locking down his spiral will be huge as we head to Vegas.

Notables: Camren Wood, Brendan Watson, Jack Halper, Matt Cluchey, Alex Rosenbaum

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Brendan Beattie

Brendan Beattie

Brendan Beattie looked great all day. Kid snaps with some serious speed on the ball and his accuracy is solid. Needs to focus on locking down the spiral as move forward. Lots and lots of potential.

  • Charlie Gambs has some good speed and consistency.
  • Patrick Szezesniak is a very athletic Long Snapper with good upside.
  • Mike Wojciechowski has excellent form and is VERY accurate. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be.

  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.
