Recap of the College Camp

Overall Champion Kyle Varnell of UAB

Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual college camp for Long Snappers either currently in a four year university or those headed to one this fall. Long Snappers from all over the map came to Tampa, FL. to train with and against the best in the world of college football.

The winner of the overall competition was Kyle Varnell of the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Kyle is a long athlete that moves very well on his feet. His ball is very smooth and catchable with excellent speed. Upside on Kyle is off the charts. He has a tremendous personality and is definitely the type of person that will be successful in whatever he chooses to do in life.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire Saturday and Sunday in Tampa. His form is darn near perfect and he is snapping the ball with a lot of power and agression. The thicker and stronger he gets, the better his overall power will be as he moves towards the NFL.

Steven Nixon of Mercer was excellent all weekend. He is strong, built well, moves like an athlete and is extremely consistent with his snapping. Not uncommon for Nixon to snap the ball in the .6s and right on the punter’s hip. Great overall personality and a Long Snapper the next generation could look up to.

Damon Johnson of USC (Southern Cal) was throwing absolute heat all weekend. Ball never even came close to .75 or higher. Damon is a very athletic Long Snapper that is driven to be the best in the country. Very powerful ball in short or long snaps.

Anthony Ratliff of East Carolin University was solid from start to finish with very accurate and consistent snaps to the punters and holders. Physically fit Long Snapper with great form and a smooth snap.

Logan Klusman of the Kansas Jayhawks was very sharp in Tampa. Body is maturing and he is snapping a very smooth and accurate ball. Ball can jump at the punter. The quicker his hands get at the start, the better he will be in the long run.

Jonathan Scandrett of Florida International University was throwing some very fast snaps back on both days. Listens well and has good upside. Ball could sting a punter if they aren’t paying attention. Built very athletically and once he extends a bit more, his ball will be more accurate and even quicker.

Peter Snodgrass of Northwestern looked extremely solid all weekend. Just heading into college and already looks like he has been snapping at the college level for years. Great upside and Snodgrass is definitely one to watch over the next couple of years.

Ian Lauvai of Sacramento State had a great camp. Thick and strong Long Snapper that was snapping pearls non-stop to the punters. Big fan of his demeanor and how calm he is under pressure.

Elias McMurry of Appalachian State is powerful and has done a great job transforming his body into that of a college athlete. When he gets his eyes through, he is as good as anyone in the country.

Grant Gustafson of Texas A&M probably had the most upside of any Long Snapper in attendance. He also can play tight end and he definitely looks the part. NFL frame right now and he can snap an NFL ball when he just lets it go.

Notables: Carson Tebbetts of StonyBrook, Chris Clore of the Colorado School of Mines, Wyman Baxley of South Carolina, Mike Curry of Penn State, Jackson Quiggle of NC State, Steven Wethli of Youngstown State, Aaron Blaylock of the Citadel and Kanyon Combs

Recap of the College Camp (July 16-17, 2016)

J-A-VstrsMany of the top college Long Snappers in the country came out to the incredible IMG ACADEMY in Bradenton, FL for two days of great instruction and camaraderie. This is always one of my favorite camps due to the high level of snapping and getting to see all of the Long Snapper’s personalities.

Josh Appel

Josh Appel

The top overall Long Snapper was Josh Appel of Indiana State. Appel is a back to back champion of this camp and is looking very solid heading into his senior year and future in the NFL. He has great size, an incredibly fast snap (not uncommon to see him in snap in the .6s and EVEN high .5s for 15 yards). Keep a close eye on Appel and you will not be disappointed.

Dillon Paprota

Dillon Paprota

The Accuracy Champion of the camp was Dillon Paprota of Bucknell. Paprota is just heading to Bucknell this fall but already looks like a seasoned vet. He has excellent size and strength with an extremely powerful snap. Accuracy is obviously off the charts and he has a great demeanor. Already expecting him to win this camp next year.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Williams of South Carolina is going to be one of the top overall Long Snappers in college next year with his outstanding speed, solid accuracy and great athleticism for the Gamecocks.

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire at the college camp. This left is very smooth and his accuracy is excellent. Only going into his second season with the Florida Gators and they look to be set for some time with his great snaps.

Tanner Carew of the Oregon Ducks was excellent all camps. Athletic Long Snapper with very good power and an incredibly smooth snap. Always fun to watch Carew snap and see his personality.

Recap of the NC Camp (3/13)

12814074_969087929834004_1802732804974303182_nRubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on March 13th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from NY, VA, GA, IL, SC, MA, OH, NJ, IL, WI, CT, PA, TN, MI & NC to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Noah Turner (NC, ’18)! Noah was on fire all day and deserved the win. Kid snaps with great power for his age and has form. Upside is off the charts for this Long Snapper from NC. He is very good for his age and just looks to keep getting better.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Jack Quiggle

Jack Quiggle

Jack Quiggle was on his game and dominated in NC. VERY athletic Long Snapper that will transition well into the college game with added size. Very good attitude and upside.

  • Harrison Freeman is large and smooth with his snapping. Passes an eyeball test quickly and is really learning to snap with full power. Great attitude.
  • Wyman Baxley has unlimited potential. Incredible athlete that flies down the field.
  • Riley John is coming along nicely. Improving rapidly.
  • Jack Wellenhoffer is flat out just good and getting better.

Notables: Chandler Honeycutt, Charles McDonough and Austin Kliewer

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall is growing like a weed and snapping like a college Long Snapper. Form is impeccable and he rips it back to the punter. Great attitude and he is always improving.

  • Kyle O’Connor is VERY accurate and consistent. Ball is almost always in The Rubio Zone. Watch him VERY closely at XXVIII in May.
  • Marshall Coluzzi had a great day in NC. Incredible accurate and consistent Long Snapper. When he is his groove, he is dominant.
  • Kevin Crabtree is REALLY coming along nicely and could easily nab an EVENT ELITE spot at XXVIII in May.
  • Ryan Culbertson is smooth and very consistent. Really need to see him explode out of the gate instead of sliding into the snapping motion.
  • Kyle Davis was impressive in NC with his power and form.
  • Austin Reeves is a smooth Long Snapper with good upside. Consistency of speed and more snaps in The Rubio Zone is what I will be searching for at XXVIII in May.
  • Callen Davidson is smooth and consistent. Trusting his form to let the ball fly out of his hands will help a ton.
  • Ryan Schwind moves well and can be dominant.

Notables: Ryan Watkins, Jason Anderson, Logan Odum, Nick Low, Carson Tebbetts and Gunner Daniel

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Noah Turner

Noah Turner

Recap Article of the NC Fall Camp (10/10/15)

NC PosterRubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on October 10th for their fall camp. The camp was a wet one but the Long Snappers, and their parents, were champs throughout the whole day.

Long Snappers came out from NC, GA, VA, MD, SC, TN & FL to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp, and new 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper, was Mitch Hall (NC, ’17)! Mitch was snapping with a ton of confidence all day and left no doubt he was on a mission and the best in his class at the camp. He is ready for college now!

2016

This 2016 class was stacked at this camp. The best overall 2016 Long Snapper was Ben Wyatt. He is big, strong and VERY athletic. Kid can move and is built well. Snaps a very powerful ball.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Freeman, Harrison

    Harrison Freeman

    Harrison Freeman continues to improve and impress me. I love this kid’s attitude and his drive. Never has not improved.

  • Jackson Quiggle is VERY close to having it all click. Great attitude and has the ability to really let the ball fly.
  • Jack Wellenhofer is long, lean and has a frame that will put on some good weight in the future. Tremendous Long Snapper
  • Gus Karres runs like the wind and has a frame that can put on some good weight over the next couple of years.
  • Charles McDonough has incredible form and is always smiling. Smooth Long Snapper with good power.
  • Jake Appling moved WAY up the charts and was very impressive all day in NC. TONS OF POWER.
  • Warren Babb is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class.

Notables: Chandler Honeycutt, Cory Rimay and Jarred Young

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Austin Reeves was extremely impressive at the camp with great size and speed on the ball. Always improving and definitely one that could quietly take the top spot.

  • Ryan Culbertson

    Ryan Culbertson

    Ryan Culbertson had another good day of camp and just continues to improve. Confidence will be huge for him in the coming months.

  • Kyle Davis impressed me throughout the day with his great form and power.
  • Jason Anderson was smooth and should dominate VEGAS XXVII.
  • Ryan Watkins has very good upside and he listens well. Kid can flat out snap the ball.

Notables: Kanyon Combs, Tyler Keaton, Nathan Millar, Tucker Mullis, Logan Odum, Cooper Short, William Stover

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Noah Turner is a strong Long Snapper that can really rip the ball back to the punter. Needs to focus on the consistency of his snaps, but when he is on, he is REALLY on.

  • Kent Vines

    Kent Vines

    Kent Vines is definitely one to watch as we move to VEGAS XXVII. He has done some growing and wouldn’t surprise me, at all, for him to take the top spot.

  • Keaton Prevette has good form and is coming along nicely. Confidence will be big for him as we continue on in the process.
  • Trey Gable impressed me with the smoothness of his snaps and how well he uses his body.

Notables: AJ Covan

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Rhys Suter is a long time Rubio Long Snapper and it was quite obvious as he dominated his class in NC. His form is impeccable and he can already get the ball in the .7s. Easily one to watch over the next couple of years.

  • Drew Little

    Drew Little

    Drew Little was excellent all day long in NC. Form is excellent and the kid is very coachable. Great Long Snapper for his age and I expect him to just keep getting better.

  • Tripp Heath did well in NC. He has good starting form and gets his legs going in the right direction quickly

Notables: Garrett Karres, Alex Harper

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on July 25th for their summer camp. This group of Long Snappers absolute blew me away with the talent from top to bottom.

Long Snappers came out from VA, NC, PA, GA, OH, SC, MA, FL, WV, MD, AL, TN, TX, NJ & IL to learn from the best and get the most exposure.

The overall winner of the camp was Jacob Rubinstein (FL, ’17). He handled pressure extremely well and was very accurate. Incredible personality and always smiling. Very consistent Long Snapper.

    Ben Wyatt

    Ben Wyatt left no doubt he was the best Long Snapper at the camp. He is big, strong and very accurate when he is snapping the ball to the punters. Kid is a machine. His misses are by inches.

  • Jackson Quiggle could catch fire and dominate a camp when he catches a groove.
  • Stephen Klotz is VERY close to greatness and definitely someone to watch.
  • Brett DioGuardi has great size and a wonderful attitude. Very smooth Long Snapper.
  • Charles McDonough has the ability to snap at the next level once his spiral is locked down. Great form.
  • Jack Wellenhoffer has all the tools to be a great one. Built very long.
  • Noah Flowers is one of the strongest Long Snappers in his class.
  • Spencer Mamo showed me some great things throughout the day. Consistency will be key.
  • Nathan Millar has TONS of upside and definitely someone to watch in the future.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Mitch Hall

    Mitch Hall

    Mitch Hall was exceptional all day and was the speed champion with times in the low .6s. Locking down the consistency moves him to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

  • Austin Reeves is smooth, accurate and always improving.
  • Tristan Sokach-Minnick was VERY impressive in NC. Ball is tight, on target and VERY fast. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXVII. Trust me on this one.
  • Grant Miller continues to improve and be the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. Tremendous frame.
  • Quinn Stephenson has some of the quickest hands in his class. Ball is fast.
  • Ryan Schwind wooed me throughout the day with his speed and attitude.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Noah Turner

    Noah Turner

    Noah Turner was OUTSTANDING all day in NC. Ball is at D1 speeds right now. Locking down his form and making sure all is smoothed out will make him unstoppable.

Recap of the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in NC on March 1, 2014

Long Snappers came out to NC to attend the Rubio Long Snapping NC Camp on March 1st from NC, SC, FL, VA, PA, MA, KY, DE, MD, OH, NY, TN and CT to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field, had a film and classroom session, a recruiting seminar and ended the day with a competition with Rubio present and running the camp. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

Kyle LandisThe overall winner of the  winner of the camp was Kyle Landis (14) out of PA. Kyle is a very thick Long Snapper that uses his strength very well. He snaps a nice, crisp, hard ball that gets back to the punter quickly. Did a good job of handling the pressure and improved throughout the day.

 

Top 2014 Long Snappers….

  • Alan Lucy (VA) showed exactly why Rutgers took him on scholarship. He is snapping with a great deal of confidence and some great accuracy. Speed is always excellent and his consistency was amazing.
  • Dillon Counts (NC) had a terrific day showing me great form and incredible athleticism of his very strong frame. He has a ton of potential and just continues to get better.
  • Nate Hawkins (OH) was beyond accurate and consistent all day. His body is looking very solid and he is oozing confidence.

Top 2015 Long Snappers…

  • Garrett Wilson (NC) looked exceptional all day long in NC. His body is looking very solid and he is snapping with good pop and confidence. Event Elite should be all over his mind for Vegas.
  • Jamie Land (SC) was very solid throughout the day. He snapped with great aggression and showed me a lot of promise. Keep an eye on this Long Snapper in Vegas.
  • Ben Warner (SC) was snapping good balls all day long. He has a good frame and with more confidence, he will dominate.

Other notable 2015 Long Snappers….Chris Lutzel, Marco Cadavieco, Caleb Hendrix, Hunter Colonna, Tyler Griffiths. Jacob Schwind, Jackson Mahorney, Erik Lawson and Chaska Moon

Top 2016 Long Snappers…..

  • John Murphy (NY) impressed me throughout the day with a steady, consistent snap that was very accurate.
