Oscar Shadley was the overall speed champion of the camp and looked great throughout the day. Excellent frame and he is a true athlete. Ball is crisp and as pure as anyone in the country. He has no problem hitting sub .75 regularly and he is ready for college now.

Jack Hadley came down from NJ with his large, strong frame and was easily one of the most dominant Long Snappers in attendance. Ball is very smooth and on target. Extremely accurate Long Snapper with excellent upside and attitude.

Bryce Bouwens was accurate and consistent with good upside in GA. Body is thick and he is strong. We he snaps with full power and gets his eyes all the way through, he can dominate.

Dillon Hayes is one of the most accurate Long Snappers in his class and can handle pressure as well as anyone else in the country. As he continues to gain strength, he will dominate his class.

Trey Corley showed great promise at the camp in GA. Body is excellent and the potential for Corley is off the charts. Speeding up his hands will make his ball quicker out of the gate and increase the overall speed of his ball.

TJ Harvey came out and had a great day in GA. Ball is smooth and powerful. Very fast Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s. Excellent attitude.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Quentin Skinner is a Long Snapper with great size and power that can hit in the .6s at 15 yards. He could snap in college right now with his frame and accuracy. Looking down his consistency and dominating a camp is the last step for Skinner.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has extremely minimal wasted movement. Lefty that is absolutely incredible when his spiral is on and tight.

JC Vega is a physically fit Long Snapper that can bring a ton of heat on the ball. Moves well on his feet and is quick with his hands. Very good potential on Vega

VEGAS XXIX CONTEST WINNER!!!!

Vegas XXIX_ContestAs you know, Rubio Long Snapping had a GIVE BACK CONTEST for a free admission to VEGAS XXIX.

All of my contests are difficult to judge, but this was one was probably the most tricky as everyone did a great job in expressing themselves and what they do to give back. I saw videos on topics ranging from….

  • Voluntarily mowing a cemetery lawn that takes THREE days…
  • Working with the Special Olympics
  • Volunteering for a Pediatric Cancer Foundation
  • Care packages of food for the needy
  • Organizing kid’s games at the local church
  • Heart screenings for teens
  • Serving meals to the needy
  • Working on a food drive for ELEVEN years
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Traveling to Costa Rica to help the poor
  • A project to keep kid’s in school
  • The Ronald McDonald House
  • It’s About the Warrior Foundation to help soldiers

Honestly, any one of the entries could have won but there are two that really stood out and here they are in alphabetical order….

Needless to say, I was VERY impressed with Nick Tibbetts and Jacob Zuhr for acting as leaders in their community. They not only volunteer, they started a volunteering organization to get others involved.

So, in the spirit of GIVING BACK, I am going to crown them BOTH the winners of the contest and they are both going to be given a FREE admission to VEGAS XXIX!

Congratulations once again to Tibbetts and Zuhr for going above and beyond in helping others. These two, and all of the others, are great examples of what the Rubio Long Snapping family is all about!

Recap of the FL Fall Camp (10/2/16)

Lindale Football Stadium at NightRubio Long Snapping traveled to Florida on October 2, 2016 for their fall camp and the talent there was tremendous. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling across the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them ready for the biggest event for specialists in the country, Vegas XXIX. Next stop is PA on Sunday, October 9th!

Long Snappers from across the state of Florida were on hand to obtain the best instruction and most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Oscar Shadley (FL, ’18)! Oscar was very impressive all day, snapping fast and accurate footballs through the whole morning session. He carried that momentum over to the afternoon where he reached the finals of the winner’s bracket for the accuracy competition, and was dominant in the speed competition having 5 of his 6 snaps in the .6s (and his worst was .72)! He won the camp through a dominant effort in the overall championship round. He is very well developed physically and has the confidence to play at the next level. Expect a huge performance out of Oscar at Vegas XXIX!

Top 2017 Long Snappers

lawless-paul

Paul Lawless

Paul Lawless (FL) was the pick to win the competition after the morning session. He was very smooth all day and effortlessly gets the ball back to the punter. He has a tremendous frame, very long and can put on more weight without any issue. He uses his legs very well for how tall he is, just needs to focus on keeping his butt down when he is getting set in his stance to help his snap from going high.

Ethan Willis (FL) had a great camp and shoed a lot of promise throughout the day. He has extremely long arms and very quick hands that allow him to get the ball back very quickly. After seeing himself during the film session, Ethan started to be more conscious of his legs and needing to be more aggressive and quicker with his leg lock. Continuing to work on that as well as flexibility will be huge for him.

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Clay James

Clay James

Clay James (FL) was off the charts all day and was the winner of the winner’s bracket of the accuracy competition. His form is darn near perfect and really uses it to his advantage to snap very fast times (on top of being in the finals for the accuracy competition, he was also one of the last two in the speed competition with camp champion Oscar Shadley). Clay has the ability to be dominant when all things are clicking, and expect him to show this in Vegas XXIX.

Zach Castano (FL) really impressed through the morning and afternoon sessions. His form was extremely sound and was very accurate. Very athletic kid who moves very well and was hungry to learn everything he could about Long Snapping; was very attentive and engaged in all classroom session. Really enjoyed working with Zach and look forward to see his continued improvement.

Braxton Baker (FL) was probably one of the smoothest Long Snappers at the camp. His ball cut through the air with ease, and everything was effortless to him. Big strong athlete who needs to develop his flexibility a bit more to allow his legs to fully lock out. Once he gets the full power out of his legs, punters better watch out because the ball will be humming back.

Evan Dvorchik (FL) had a great camp. His form is almost there, and with continued focus on not popping up when he snaps will make it perfect. He snapped from very good balls throughout the day, but fine tuning his technique just the tiniest amount will make him more consistent and become very, very good.

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Enzo Anthony

Enzo Anthony

Enzo Anthony (FL) was very close to winning the whole camp. He came back through the knockout round of the accuracy competition and ended up winning the finals vs Clay James. Enzo shows tremendous upside for someone of his age. His form is so sound and he snaps such a tight spiral. As he continues to develop physically and get a little more power in his snap, he is going to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Frank Melgarejo (FL) impressed all day. He is a very physically developed for his age, and with continued work will become a tremendous Long Snapper. A little work on weight distribution (sitting back at the beginning, sitting back down at the end) along with flexibility (not popping up so much as he snaps) will be monumental in his development. I know he will continue to work on those and am excited to see him continue to develop!

Griffin Kaye (FL) had a very good camp. His form is very good, and when he decides to get set, he can snap with the best of them. The six inches between the ears will the biggest hurdle for Griffin, as he needs to stop thinking so much and just get set and snap the ball. When he does that he is great.

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr (FL) is extremely talented for his age. His flexibility is off the charts, and his form is darn near perfect. He snaps a very tight spiral that cuts through the air effortlessly. Excited to see Jacob continue to develop physically as he has a very bright future ahead of him!

Clay Caldwell (FL) took some very purposeful strides in his development at this camp. He came in very raw, but his attentiveness to detail and eagerness to learn from others, he came out a very more polished Long Snapper. I know Clay will continue to take all the fundamentals and skills he learned home and will come back to his next camp a very much improved Long Snapper.

Recap of the FBU TOP GUN Camp (July 14-15, 2016)

CSK_RLS_FBURubio Long Snapping traveled to Rock Hill, SC on July 14-15 to run the FBU TOP GUN Camp and choose the FBU and Army All-Americans. The weather was hot and so were the Long Snappers in attendance. The Long Snappers present were many of the best in the country and the competition did not disappoint. Here are the results of the two day camp….

2017

Thomas Fletcher Army All-American

Thomas Fletcher Army All-American

As expected, the senior class was stacked with Long Snapping talent from all over the country. Previously named Army All-American Thomas Fletcher led the group with very quick hands, incredible form and flawless snaps under pressure. Nick Saban and Alabama got a great one when Fletcher committed on full scholarship to the Tide.

The top four Long Snappers that headed into the competition for the final Army All-American spot were Drew Wise, Kyle Gibbs, Jake Pagel and Mitch Hall. The first ball was between Drew Wise and Kyle Gibbs. Both Long Snappers were excellent over the two day span with VERY fast snaps on a consistent basis. Gibbs proved to be the better Long Snapper by knocking out Wise in just a couple of snaps.

Mitch Hall Army All American

Mitch Hall Army All American

The next battle was between Jake Pagel and Mitch Hall. Both Long Snappers showed great accuracy over the two day span with no let off when heavy pressure or blocking was thrown into the mix. Mitch Hall took the lead early in this one and never let up to defeat Pagel.

The final Army All-American spot came down to a snap off between Kyle Gibbs and Mitch Hall. The heated match went for many snaps as the Long Snappers had to get a total of seven points. They both hit a three right off the bat, but Mitch Hall was able to pull away in the end and earn the coveted Army All-American spot for the East Team!

2018

Max Durschlag

Max Durschlag

The top two Long Snappers in this class were Maddie Golden and Max Durschlag with Durschlag coming out on top in the end to claim the title 2018 TOP GUN MVP Long Snapper. Durschlag started slow but got hot at the right time and was smooth as silk on the final day. Doesn’t say much but doesn’t need to do when he is throwing heat like he did on the final day.

2019

Frank melgarejo

Frank melgarejo

The top two Long Snappers in this class were Drew Little and Frank Melgarejo with Melgarejo edging out Little in the competition to claim the title 2019 TOP GUN MVP Long Snapper. Melgarejo is a very athletic Long Snapper with good upside. Hands are strong and he is aggressive when he is snapping. Working on smoothing out his snapping motion will greatly move him up the ladder. Good potential.

2020

Kameron Hawkins and Aaron Estrada

Kameron Hawkins and Aaron Estrada

Aaron Estrada and Kameron Hawkins were the top 2020 Long Snappers and both earned the honor of being FBU All-Americans at the Alamo Dome in January. Estrada outlasted Jacob Zuhr while Hawkins out performed Jackson Worthen in the finals. Estrada has a nice, long frame with good starting form and can handle pressure well. Hawkins was flat out dominant on both days of the camp and was snapping pearls non-stop. Both of these Long Snappers have the potential to be very dominant over the next couple years.

Carson Garrison was named a 2021 FBU All-American and be invited to the game in January at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio. He was crowned champion by defeating Nick Walker in a snap off on day two of the TOP GUN Camp. Garrison was solid over the two day span with consistent and accurate snaps with times right at the 1 second mark at worst. Very good upside and he handles pressure really well.

Long Snappers came out from FL, AL SC, TX, OK, MS, IL , MI and NC to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Thomas Fletcher (FL, ’17)! Fletcher is the top ranked Long Snapper in the country with offers from Memphis, Florida State, Portland State and Oregon. He left no doubt he deserves those offers and many more. Fletcher handles pressure as well as anyone I have ever had and has no wasted movement in his snap. Ball jumps out of the gate.

2016

Brett DioGuardi

Brett DioGuardi was the top 2016 Long Snapper in attendance in FL. He has good size and is a very accurate and consistent Long Snapper. Trusting his form and really letting the ball fly will assist with speed. Great attitude.

Paul Lawless is a very solid Long Snapper with a great attitude. When it all clicks for him, he will destroy his class. Very good upside

David Demeter is a tremendous athlete that really flies down field on punt coverage. Major factor on the punt team. Like to see him work on being quicker on his initial movement.

Gabe Hantz is a strong Long Snapper that just needs to focus on getting set to truly dominate. Good frame.

Notables: Eli McMullen, Kyle Childers

FBU TOP GUN RECAP

Over 60 Long Snappers came out to the FBU TOP GUN camp in Ohio to compete against each other for spots to the FBU 7th & 8th All-Star games along with the granddaddy of them all, the US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL in San Antonio, TX.

TOP GUN 2015

On the first day, the two best Long Snappers in attendance, John Shannon (’16, IL) and Johnny Den Bleyker (’16, CA) were chosen to battle for the first All-American spot. They went head to head on The Rubio Target to see who would be the first to five. These two didn’t disappoint with both scoring on each snap. Eventually, John Shannon couldn’t be beat and earned the first All-American spot.

Jacob Zuhr FBU

Jacob Zuhr with Erik Richards of the Army All-American Bowl

For the youth, four 2020 Long Snappers were chosen to battle. Kameron Hawkins (CA), Jacob Zuhr (FL), Jackson Worthen (KY and Zane McCracken (GA) competed for one spot for the FBU All-Star game. The snaps were crisp and all did very well but the best of the best on this day was Jacob Zuhr and he was selected to be an FBU All-Star!

On day two of the FBU TOP GUN camp, the Long Snappers were taken through several competitions involving speed, accuracy and athleticism. After two days of charting, the top four 2016 Long Snappers were Jake Cesear (CA), Geron Eatherly (TX), Ben Wyatt (NC) and Johnny Den Bleyker (CA). Geron Eatherly battled Ben Wyatt to start off the finals and both did very well but Eatherly proved to be too much for Wyatt.

Next up was Jake Cesear against Johnny Den Bleyker. Both started slow but then it heated up quickly with Den Bleyker coming out on top. Snaps were crisp and on target for both Long Snappers.

Army All-Americans 2015

Army All-Americans Johnny Den Bleyker and John Shannon

The finals was Eatherly vs Den Bleyker. One of these two would be the final US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN Long Snapper. These two Long Snappers did not disappoint with both averaging in the low .7s with the ball being right on target. In the end, Den Bleyker proved his dominance and earned the spot.

For the 2020 Long Snappers, the final four to compete for the last spot were Kameron Hawkins (CA), Zane McCracken (GA), Michael Bastuga (IN) and Jackson Worthen (KY). It came down to Hawkins vs Worthen in the finals with Worthen being nails and earning the spot. I was VERY impressed with this group of incoming 8th graders. The future is bright with Rubio Long Snapping! (You should see the form on these kids!)

Congratulations to all of the Long Snappers in attendance and I wanted to give a couple shootouts to some of the guys that really stood out in my eyes….
