Recap Article of the IL Camp (11/22)

Chicago_RubioRubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on December 22nd for their fall camp. The camp was filled great Long Snappers on a below freezing day….but Long Snappers were inside so it was balmy:)

Long Snappers came out from IL, MI, OH, IN, PA, IA, NE, MN, WI, MA, UT, MO, KY, SD and even CA to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp and top 2017 Long Snapper was Kasey Kelleher (OH, ’17)! Kasey was on fire all day snapping absolute bullets to the punter. Kasey continues to be one of the most consistent and powerful Long Snappers in his class. He almost won the NJ camp a couple weeks prior. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXVII. Kid is a stud!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Bradley Robinson was the best 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He is incredibly smooth and accurate with a nice, catchable ball. Passes an eyeball test quickly and has a great attitude.

  • Phillip Thomas keeps improving and heading in the right direction. Smooth Long Snapper with unlimited potential.

  • Paul Monaco never stops improving and is making a great name for himself as one of the top Long Snappers in his class.
  • Brad Sorenson passes an eyeball test quickly and has great raw power.
  • Camden Boyle has very good speed and will dominate once his eyes get all the way through on a very consistent basis.
  • Ethan Tabel is a smooth, accurate Long Snapper with a good base. Increasing his speed by leading with his elbows will be key.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2017 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2017 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping National Event: VEGAS XXV!

Approximately 300 Long Snappers came in from nearly every state in the country and even Canada to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snappers. This was what you call a true national event to see how you really compare against the best in the world. As I stated before, there is nothing like Vegas and this one definitely did not disappoint. Testimonials are coming in non-stop regarding the weekend.  With the addition of an agility and tackling station, athleticism really played a role in the rankings.

Next ranking opportunity will be at any Rubio Long Snapping spring and summer camp.

This group was simply amazing with the level of talent they brought out to the field on both days. I could make this post 20 pages long talking about each and every one of them. Here are the best of the best….

  • Thomas Fletcher: Fletcher is the first sophomore to win a VEGAS event.  He was absolute nails under pressure and acted as if it was just a given that he would win the whole thing from the start….love that. His form is very good (could move his butt down just a tad) and he uses his whole body really well. This kid is flat out very good for his age and is almost ready for college now.
  • Mitch Hall: He is snapping with some confidence and the more of that he snaps with, the better he will be in the long run.  Hall has VERY good starting form. The more he trusts it, the higher he goes in the rankings.  Athletically, he moved pretty darn well.  He moved quickly and got up quickly through the agility and tackling station. I love this kid’s attitude. You should keep a very close eye on him.
  • Nate Durham: It looks like there is going to be a severe battle for the top spot in the coming months for the class of 2017.  Durham could easily take the lead. His form is VERY good and he is snapping the ball with good speed. He needs to make sure his eyes are getting all the way through for more speed, accuracy and consistency.  Athletically, he moves well for his size but needs to be able to control his body a bit more when moving forward and laterally over the bags. He has TONS of potential. He should be seriously thinking about EVENT ELITE at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jeremiah Riordan:  Riordan is really moving forward and he is doing it quickly.  I loved what I saw at VEGAS XXV.   This kid has very good size for his age and solid form.  He is using his whole body really well and snaps with power.  I would love to see him have no hiccups with his eyes/head as he drives them through his legs.  That will help with accuracy, consistency and speed.  Athletically, he moved fast and tackled well. Being a little more agile will be something I will be looking for at VEGAS XXVI. Very good upside with this kid.
  • Jake Hess: He is snapping with very good confidence and really letting the ball fly out of his hands. One of the best parts about Hess is how coachable he is….you tell him to work on something, give him some time, you come back and it is done.  He will make a coach very happy in the coming years.  He is driving his head through well and snapping with good power.  Athletically, he needs to make sure he focuses on all aspects of the agility and tackling station or he will remain stuck at 4 stars for some time. He has a VERY good attitude.
  • Kasey Kelleher: This kid has wonderful form and is snapping a nice, crisp ball that has some very good pop on it. I would love to see him lean back a bit more to ensure more power and consistency.  Athletically, he moves well on his feet and has good control all around. Kelleher has tons of potential and could take the top spot at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Joe Calcagno: He is snapping with good form and he is using his body well. It is really simple for Calcagno….the harder he snaps, the better he does in all aspects of his snapping. Athletically, I want him to not be too timid and attack every movement.  This includes the tackling aspect of the agility and tackling drill. He has good potential.
  • Matthew Smith: He is very athletic and moved flawlessly through the agility and tackling section of VEGAS XXV.  I would love to see him lower his butt a bit more to really gain some speed on the ball.  Dropping two inches lower will get him to be consistently in the .7 second range. Smith’s form is very good and he is right on the cusp of greatness. I am telling you, keep a VERY close eye on this kid at VEGAS XXVI and beyond.
  • Devin Noth: He is built long and has a frame that will be able to put on some good weight in the coming years. His hands are like rockets and the ball jumps out of the gate.  So fast in fact, Noth is almost hard to time. He needs to really make sure he gets his eyes and head all the way through to be more accurate and consistent. Athletically, he might be the smoothest in all of his class. He dominated the agility and tackling station. You need to watch this kid VERY closely.  He made a massive jump in the rankings.
  • Trevor Dhabalt: He is one of those Long Snappers that shows waves of brilliance. Some snaps are exceptional and some need work. I would love to see him lift his release point a bit and really snap with full power at all times. When he tries to aim the ball, it dies and we don’t want that.  Dhabalt’s form is good and he needs to trust it. Athletically, he moves smooth and with purpose. Controlling his body will help at VEGAS XXVI.

Recap Article & Video of the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in IL

Long Snappers came out on March 30 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in IL from IL, OH, IN, MS, MD, IA, KY, MI, TN, NY, MO, PA, NJ and NC  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.

Whitehouse, HarleyThe overall winner of the camp was Harley Whitehouse (MO, ’15). Harley had a great day and handled the pressure very well. He was snapping hard and with a lot of confidence. Really came on when he needed to in order to lock up the victory. Love to see him get his spiral locked down and a bit more speed but he is well on his way. Expect to see great things from Harley in Vegas!

TOP 2014 Long Snappers…

  • Wyatt Pfeifer was flat out dominant all day. The Western Michigan commit left no doubt he is worth of a scholarship with smooth and accurate snaps all day long in Chicago.
  • Mitch Hardy showed, yet again, great improvement. He is snapping a very accurate ball and has a lot of confidence. Always getting better and overflowing with an amazing attitude. The coaches will love him at Arkansas St.

TOP 2015 Long Snappers…

  • Tyler Griffiths looked wonderful at the camp. He is built very well with great athleticism and an excellent attitude. He is gaining a lot of confidence and should make serious move in rankings if he keeps this going in Vegas.
  • Matt Foley came out from CA and did well all day. His form is excellent and he is creating a lot of speed with his legs.
  • Hunter Varga is gaining confidence and it is paying off. He is a very consistent and accurate due to his very good form.
