Chris-Rubio-2Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the biggest and best resource for Long Snappers in the country. Offering the best instruction and most exposure in the world. Rubio Long Snapping can help you to become the best snapper you can be!

In just 12 years, Chris Rubio, President and Owner of Rubio Long Snapping, has become the #1 Long Snapping instructor in the country and the go-to man when a college coach needs a Long Snapper. Colleges from across the country rely on “Rubio’s” word day in and day out on who the best Long Snappers are in the country. Rubio Long Snapping has assisted in over 300 Long Snappers earning FULL SCHOLARSHIPS to major colleges and universities just for Long Snapping and many into the NFL as well.

Article & Rankings from the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in CA

The rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in CA!

Long Snappers came out from CA, NV, AZ, WY, WA, UT and CO to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Next ranking opportunity will be at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX on March 15th.

Hoffman, Harrison

Harrison Hoffman

The overall winner of the camp was Harrison Hoffman. Harrison is headed to the Air Force Academy and will do great there. He is a smooth Long Snapper with a frame that will easily be able to pack on the pounds in the coming years. Great kid and always learning

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Jordan Ober snaps so the ball is crisp, tight and moves quickly back to the punter. I would love to see him lower his butt just a tad to get even more speed on the ball. That’s a very simple fix that can be adjusted in less than a week. I also love his attitude.
  • Cody Block is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He moves very well on his feet, no matter what he is doing. His hands are extremely quick. He gets the ball out of the gate as well as anyone else in the country. I would love to see him focus on getting fully set and making sure he is going back instead of just straight up. This will increase the speed of the ball and keep him in the low .7s to even .6s over the course of a day.
  • Jonathan Goldstein is built long and his form has really progressed over the years. He has a frame that can put up some very good weight over the next year. Goldstein uses his whole body really well and he can snap the ball in the .6s at times on punts. He needs to make sure his consistency with that speed is locked down and that he is getting the same release point with all of his snaps. This kid can really snap. Watch him.
  • Peter Comaroto‘s form is excellent and he is always improving. Getting his footwork down and continuing to build his body will help in the long run. It is fun to watch this kid snap. UMASS is lucky to have him in the fall.
  • Richard Wilcox is fantastic when loose. The less thinking he does, the better he is. I love when he drives his elbows and creates some good whip and speed on the ball. He is built thick so he will have to really make sure he stays loose and doesn’t become too bulky which will slow the ball down. He has a great attitude.
  • Matt Foley is snapping the ball with confidence and is sure of himself. He looked good. I REALLY just need to see him focus on one snap and let it fly out of his hands full speed. Once he does that, I want it EVERY SINGLE TIME. He is as close as possible to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. This kid is good.

Notables: Scott Stevens, Jack Dixon, JT Bale

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Johnny Den Bleyker was smooth, strong and fast. Den Bleyker has it all right now. The bigger he gets, the better he will be. Love when he gets fully set. Very dominant at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. UCLA got a good one.
  • Damon Johnson had a great day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. Gets in a groove and is very dominant. His misses are becoming less and less frequent. Big thing for him is to just snap the ball as hard as he can at all times. Kid is flat out good and he will make a college coach very happy in the next couple of years.
  • Conner Kirkegaard had a much better day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. When he lets the ball just fly out of his hands, he is exceptional. Controlling his release point will be huge for him gaining accuracy. Speed is right on target. WORK HORSE.
  • Koby Walsh had another great day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. He is right in the mix with all of the great ones in his class. Now, he needs to lock down the consistency and take it to the next level. Show me he can win a camp and separate himself from those above him. Moves really well on his feet. Body is coming along nicely. I will be testing his blocking and movement a ton at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jake Cesear – Simple: he gets to about 210 lbs and he will have a scholarship. Reminds me a lot of Rubio Long Snappers Aaron Brewer (Denver Broncos) and Chase Dominguez (Utah). TONS of upside. Kid is almost ready for a scholarship now. SMOOOOOOOOTH.
  • James Workman had another big jump in the rankings and well deserved. Workman is really locking down his consistency and is headed towards one of the greats in his class. The harder he snaps, the better he will be. Lowering his butt will help a bit to gain more speed and power. Kid is filled with potential. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXVI. EVENT ELITE?
  • Donald Reiter is coming along nicely and had a good day at the Rubio Long Snapping camp in CA. Needs to really focus on being as quick as possible going back instead of gradually going up. Very good attitude.

Notables: Jack Haney, Curtis Hernandez, Jacob Mimoun,  Jack Munsey, Andrew Tomlinson, Jared Enrico, Blake Gifford, Fletcher Dilley

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Thomas Fletcher is just flat out good. Really good. If I was a college coach, I would be looking at this kid VERY, VERY closely right now. The bigger he gets, the better he will be. Just trust me on this, watch him. It would not surprise me to see him win VEGAS XXVI.
  • Koltin Anderson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. He is snapping the ball with confidence and good power. Like to see him continue to work on eliminating the hitch while still snapping full power. Strong bodied. Great attitude.
  • Alex Michaelsen is snapping the ball with good power and strength. Needs to make sure he is not over-gripping the ball so he keeps his spiral on lock down. Keeping his back flat will help with overall speed and power. VERY good potential and definitely one to watch.
  • Devin Noth of Colorado did well. Plain and simple, the bigger Noth gets, the better he will be. Kid has very good form and is snapping the ball well. He is snapping the ball with very good power and accuracy. Kid is flat out good. Keep a very close eye on him over the next two years and beyond.

Notables: Joey Tanaka, Noah Rodriguez-Trammell, Caleb Laver

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS & FUTURE STARS

  • Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best in his class and it wasn’t even close. Kid is strong, has a great attitude and snaps with power.
  • Brendan Bentley showed QUICK improvement in a very short amount of time. Body is strong and his form is good. Loved what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. Snaps the ball with good power. Like to see him sit down a bit more and make sure he is leaning back. VERY good potential and you should really keep a close eye on him.
  • Simon Samarzich continues to just plug along and dominate his age group in CA. VEGAS XXVI will be big to prove he is dominant at the national level. Wouldn’t put money against him showing up and snapping bullets.

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • 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.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2015 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2015 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….

  • Blake Ferguson was like a machine. Every thing you hear about him is true, plus more. He is that good.
  • Wesley Farnsworth is, easily, the most athletic Long Snapper in the country and I would put him up against any other high school player and still have my money on Farnsworth.
  • Liam McCullough has rockets for hands and catches fire.
  • AJ Carty will put a hole in his punter if he is not paying attention. Timed him several times in the .5s!
  • Tyler Griffiths has never once looked better after a camp. Kid is always improving.
  • Michael Poujol is, by far, the best available Long Snapper in the country.
  • Grant Gluhaich was simply amazing all weekend. Fire comes off his ball it is moving so quickly. Missed winning by two inches.
  • Jordan Ober handles pressure as well anyone in the country.
  • Hayden Sak is a massive man with tons of potential and talent.
  • Travis Baugus was on fire and snapping with great confidence. Passes an eyeball test quickly.
  • Drew McCracken is a pure athlete that rips the ball back to the punter.
  • Ryan Simmons was oozing confidence and he was outstanding all weekend.

Notables: Richard Wilcox, Brendan Lowery, Matt Foley, Chase Urbach, Owen Gilbert, Peter Comaroto, Ryan Parris, Harrison Hoffman, Logan Hamilton, Zach Wood, JT Bale, Kyle Varnell, Marco Cadavieco, Christian Samarzich, Landon Giammalva, Michael Soto, Wyatt Leath and Ryan Oak.

IMG_8035

AJ Carty

This class of Long Snappers has really begun to separate itself as one of the best ever.

  • The best 2015 Long Snapper at the camp was AJ Carty. Carty, a University of Washington commit, was on fire all day long throwing incredible heat and winning the entire camp.
  • Jordan Ober was extremely solid all day with punt snaps that dipped into the low .6s
  • Grant Gluhaich is one of the most amazing Long Snappers in the country. You have to make a point to see him snap at VEGAS XXV
  • Matt Foley is starting to really snap with confidence and he is coming along very well.
  • Ryan Simmons won the accuracy competition and looked exceptional all day long.
  • John Magness looked very solid and is definitely making a move to being a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

EVENT ELITE MEMBER # 14

Congratulations to Jordan Ober (NV, ’15) on being selected to the 2014 Event Elite!

Here was your clue…. EVENT ELITE member: shocked this kid doesn’t snap with his tongue out & he would be at the top row at the hofrbauhaus

1st part:  shocked this kid doesn’t snap with his tongue out  (Michael JORDAN used to always play with his tongue out)

2nd part: he would be at the top row at the hofrbauhaus (The Hofbrauhaus is a German restaurant and OBER means upper in German)

Congratulations to Jordan Ober on being invited to the 2014 TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp where only the best of the best Long Snappers in the country will be competing and learning!

Ober, Jordan

Recap Article and Video of the 12th Annual Spring Event in Las Vegas

Long Snappers came out on May 10-11 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in Las Vegas from from over half of the USA 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 on Satuday with competition on Sunday. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

The overall winner of the camp was Jordan Ober (NV, ’15). Ober was exceptional all weekend in Vegas. The hometown hero snapped a great, accurate ball throughout the two days. He is snapping with confidence and dips into the D1 range. Incredible accuracy and has been improving a great amount in a very short amount of time. Excellent attitude.

The 12 Long Snappers that made the finals round on Sunday due to their exceptional RSI (Rubio Standard Index – score divided by speed with bonus points for more speed) were….Jordan Ober, AJ Carty, George Madden, Grant Gluhaich, Jake Knight, Tommy Bancroft, Liam McCullough, John Aloma, Harrison Goebel, Darren Diffee, Logan Hamilton & Michael Poujol. All were great but Ober just outlasted them all.

TOP 2014/JC Long Snappers (to see any profiles, simply go to RubioLongSnapping.com under Player Rankings)….

 

  • Wesley Bertoni looked exceptional all weekend. Body is strong and his form is perfect. AMAZING improvement in the last year
  • Cody Block did extremely well over the weekend in Vegas. He is transfer from Nevada and looks to being easily able to snap at the next level. The harder he snaps, the better he does.
  • Nick Avantino was snapping hard all weekend and moves well on his feet. Great attitude.
  • Elijah Richardson was throwing heat in Vegas and is built very well. Strong Long Snapper with a ton of upside.

RECAP: 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas

On May 4-5, 2013 well over 100 Long Snappers from around the globe came out to Las Vegas to participate in the 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas sponsored by Nike. The talent was excellent and so were the conditions. The staff was overflowing with one staff member per three Long Snappers so everyone was able to get the full experience throughout the weekend. Day one of the Event was all about instruction and many Long Snappers stood out immediately to make a name for themselves.

After it was all said and done, the winner of the camp was CJ Keller (2014, AZ). CJ handles pressure as well as anyone in the country, was snapping bullets all day and is very, very accurate and consistent. Kid is a machine and outlasted the rest of the competitors to take home the title!
