TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Matt Hembrough

Matt Hembrough was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was absolutely ripping the ball back to the punter and his body is starting to thicken up. Oklahoma State got a good one in Hembrough as he is definitely looking ready for the college level at this point.

Nate Durham was smooth, consistent and showed great accuracy throughout the day in IL. Frame is solid and he has great form. Absolutely love to watch Nate snap when he is putting full power on the ball.

Dylan Castro is beyond smooth and left no doubt he is ready for the college level with his snapping. He has a great attitude and uses his body well. Very good upside for Castro over the next couple of years.

Shiloh Mast did very well in IL and could have ended up winning the whole thing! Attitude is excellent and so is his form. Uses his whole body well and snaps a very smooth ball.

Mario Rodrigues has improved a ton and looks ready for the next level. Form is good and he does a great job of being consistent with each and every snap.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Roen McCullough

Roen McCullough won the speed competition and has really improved a ton with his consistency. Kid snaps with a great deal of power and accuracy. He looked very sharp throughout the day and left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country.

Ron Gaines is a massive human being that snaps a smooth ball and uses his body well. Ball hits the punter with good power and he has a solid spiral. Very good attitude and upside on Gaines.

Ross Hinders is a great Long Snapper with excellent form. He can hit in the .7s and he has solid accuracy. Quiet but does all of his talking with his snapping. He is going to do well in college.

Jesse Hooper came out from UT and did really well. He is snapping with a lot of confidence and the ball is flying well to the punter. He is a very thick and strong Long Snapper with a lot of upside.

Matt Tokos looked very sharp in IL and proved his trip from NV was worth it. He definitely impressed me throughout the day with his very quick hands and great attitude.

Michael Vinson is a large Long Snapper with a good frame and snap. Using his body well and can snap consistently in the mid .7s. Lot of upside on Vinson.

Jack Halper is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in the country. The kid can flat out fly down field and will easily be a factor on punt coverage. Consistent snapper in the mid to high .7s.

Zach Drevno is thick, strong and showed good promise. Being a bit quicker and making sure he is always going back will help in the long run. Very good attitude.

Charles DeRosier came out from CA and showed great promise. Consistent and smooth Long Snapper that hovers in the high .7s. Good attitude and potential

Turner Pallissard is an athletic Long Snapper with a good frame that can get the ball back to the punter well. Smooth on his feet and with his snapping.

Brendan Watson did well in Chicago. Very accurate Long Snapper that is always improving.

Notables: Evan Jennings, Levi McKinney, Sam Rogers, Alex Rosenbaum, Jacob Walker, Axel Raarup

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Little

Drew Little showed great consistency in his snaps and excellent form. His ball really pops back to the punter and his use of his body is off the charts. Hard worker that is always working to get better.

Brad George was on fire and absolutely ripping the ball back to the punters. He had no problem hitting in the low .7s and even .6s at times. George was snapping the ball so hard it was almost shocking…in a good way. Keep an eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Jude Pedrozo was very solid all day in Chicago. Good frame, great attitude and excellent form means Jude is definitely one to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.

David O’Keefe had very quick hands and really got the ball out of the gate well. Thick frame and strong throughout. Very good upside on O’Keefe.

Mike Wojciechowski has great form and is snapping with some solid confidence. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he does. Over the next two years, he will make his high school coach very happy.

Nathan Tokar has improved his frame and his snaps are looking better as well. Uses his body really well and is snapping with confidence. I really liked what I saw out of Tokar in Chicago.

Thomas Peterson was consistent and smooth with his snaps all day in Chicago. Good upside.

Dylan McCardel was a stud on his feet and snapped very well all day. Ball is quick and his ball jumps out of the gate well. Love his demeanor and he is always improving.

Hayden Snyder was consistent with his speeds and showed solid accuracy. Very good upside.

Nolan Rossback had his best day at a Rubio Long Snapping camp. He looks to be growing like a weed and using his newer frame to get more power on the ball. As he continues to grow, he should continue to dominate. Great kid.

Patrick Szczesniak looked very solid in Chicago. He has a great frame and snaps a smooth and consistent ball. Excellent upside on Patrick.

Notables: Kuper Imrem, Ethan Warren, George Walsh

TOP 2020 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Jackson Worthen

Jackson Worthen left no doubt he was the best overall freshman Long Snapper in attendance. His form is great and he snaps with great force. You can hear his hands whipping back as he snaps the ball to the punter. He is going to be excellent if he keeps going at this pace.

Christo Kelly showed great upside and promise. Nice frame and he can get in the low .8s when he is on.

David Boan is a monster for his age and is headed towards greatness. Form is good and he has the potential to completely dominate his class over the next couple of years.

Michael Bastuga has good form, a great attitude and tons of upside. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will become over the next couple of years.

Recap the NJ Spring Camp (4/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on April 9th, 2017 for their spring camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this spring instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the 2nd biggest event of the year (the largest is our January Vegas Event), VEGAS 30!

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Chicago on April 23rd.

This was the sixth Rubio Long Snapping regional camp that featured the RSI Testing to track a Long Snappers progress throughout the year and it was an overwhelming success. You can find out more about this new format HERE and the RSI’s from this actual camp already posted HERE

Long Snappers from NY, NJ, MD, VA, MA, PA, CT, OH, and NC all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

Senior Staff Member Corey Adams with Champion Corbin Robertson

The overall camp champion was Corbin Robertson (2018)! Corbin is incredibly smooth and his catchability is off the charts. He was the most accurate snapper of the camp, hitting 5 consecutive 3s on the target to go from 6th seed to camp champion! He was unflappable in the finals and handled the pressure very well. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

The finals included Kevin Crabtree, Billy Taylor, Rino Monteforte, Jack Hadley, Jude Pedrozo and Corbin Robertson
TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Billy Taylor

Billy Taylor was dominant all day in NJ. His combination of speed (he was the speed champion of the camp!) and accuracy is top notch and Rutgers is lucky to have him on their team next year. His ball comes out so fast and in such a tight spiral, it looks like it is fired out of a jugs machine. He continues to develop physically and looks like he can step onto college field and play today.

Kevin Crabtree is a massive human being and was throwing heat all day. He went head to head with Billy in the speed finals, and was barely edged out. He moves very well for his size and his accuracy was consistently solid all day.

Mario McIntyre (JC) really impressed with his speed and physical ability. A lot of punters were caught off guard by his snaps as they pop out of his hands so quickly. Very solid long snapper, one of the most athletic people at the camp as well.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Jack Hadley

Jack Hadley has everything you look for in a top long snapper: size, power, accuracy, athleticism. VERY large man who moves incredibly well. His form and flexibility is incredible for a person of his size. Ball comes out so effortlessly and just cuts through the air. Expect big things out of him in the future

Jon Jarrett really surprised at this camp. Was firing bullets back all day and was soaking up all the instruction and film work like a sponge. Very eager long snapper who will apply everything he learned and take the next step to being great.

Corbin Robertson obviously stood out as the camp champion, but even before then he was competing a high level. His ball is silky smooth and accurate; you could almost catch it with your eyes closed. Big kid who continues to improve at every camp. Excited to see him compete at Vegas 30!

Matt Aloni is a very technically sound long snapper who performed great all camp. Has great size and showed consistent accuracy all day. His form is something you can use as a video example for younger snappers. Very attentive all camp and will continue to improve like he has in the past!

Brian Richards had a great day and improved through it all. He has a very athletic build and can be a factor in coverage and blocking. With some work he can really climb the ranks.

Matt Gannon showed great accuracy all day. His form improved consistently after the film review in the afternoon. Great footwork in blocking, and crushed the agility portion of the camp.

Notables: Josh Windsor, Joseph O’Rourke, Robbie Wiley, Joseph Crima

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo

Jude Pedrozo was locked in all day with his speed and accuracy. Very athletic underclassman who has tons of confidence to go with his ability. Already competing at a high level for his age, time will only tell how amazing he can potentially be.

Drew Brenowitz showed tons of power all day. He snaps the ball so hard that he was missing high. Once he grasped the concept that is ball is climbing the whole way to the punter and to adjust his release point a little earlier, he was deadly accurate. Tons of potential.

Ryan Flowers is a big kid who very rarely misses. His accuracy was impressive all day and he really took in all the coaching through the day. A couple tweaks to get his speed down and he will be a dangerous snapper to look out for.

Evan Davis has tons of potential. Physically gifted and is very athletic for his size. Accuracy was spot on all day. Once he tightens up his spiral he will be one to keep an eye on.

Dom Serapigilia is a snapper who continues to improve every time I see him. His form for his size is incredible, and his consistency is directly correlated to it. He is a great kid who is un-rattled by any situation you put him in. Speed will continue to develop and he will start to become dominant.

Ryan Sullivan snaps such a smooth ball it looks effortless on the field. He has tons of potential once he starts to snap hard and focus on his speed. Excited to see him develop.

John Morton is a very big underclassman who has his accuracy down. Once he starts to use his big body and put some power behind the snap he will jump the rankings quickly.

Notables: Stephen Sokach-Minnick, Matt Blount, Joseph Shimko, Holden Ford

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS AND BEYOND…

Rino Monteforte

Rino Monteforte (class of 2022!) competed with the upperclassman as one of the top 6 for the accuracy portion of the camp. Has tons of confidence for his age and his form is very advanced. Very advanced for this point of his career and excited to see him grow!

Declan McCauley is a massive underclassman and looks like he could be a senior in high school. Frame is exactly what you want and he already has it filled out. His speed and accuracy is well beyond his age as well. Very impressed with his development and can’t wait to see what he develops into!

Bryce Eimer impressed all day. He advanced the furthest out of this age group in the speed portion of the camp. His form is very solid, and once he gets his accuracy locked in, he is going to be dominant.

Jake Deluccia absolutely fires the ball back to the punter. The ball jumps out of his hands and has a tight spiral. Transitioned into blocking very well. A few small adjustments to his stance and everything will come together.

Connor Rhinehart has come a long way in a short period of time. His body is starting to develop and it shows with the speed of his snap. He is very accurate and snaps a very smooth ball. Excited to see him to continue to develop physically and see what he grows into.

Luke Byrne is going to be something special once he develops a bit more physically. His ball has a very tight spiral and is very accurate. Once he can grow some strength and develop some flexibility he will be extremely impressive. One to watch.

Zack Taylor has big shoes to fill (older brother is Billy from class of 2017) but he is well on his way. His form is almost identical to his brothers (which is pretty darn good). Once he develops a bit more physically, the sky is the limit. Very excited to watch him grow.

Andrew Dufault (class of 2023!) shows incredible potential this early on. His form is very sound and he snaps a very good spiral. Once he makes a few small adjustments he is going to grow into something special.

Notables: Connor Montgomery, Colin Blount, Patrick Cooney, Spencer Rhinehart

Top 2019 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2019 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Mike Zahara, WA
Super laid back kid. Didn’t get overly worked up about anything. Kept his cool and took instruction well. Thought it was a great sign from a kid of his age, not getting frazzled or frustrated. Really good form. Has long frame that can fill out nicely. Once he puts on some muscle and snaps hard, he will be great.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Simon Samarzich, CA
Simon had a good weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a true athlete that can be as good, or great, as he chooses to be with his Long Snapping. Once he fully dedicates himself to snapping, he could easily take the top spot and run with it. Accuracy is solid and his form is excellent for his age. Handles pressure well and could have actually won the whole thing in the desert. Like to see some more speed on the ball and that will come with consistency of snapping motion and size. Tremendous potential on Simon.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Hayden Hood, TX
Hood was excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and showed no mercy in TX. His confidence is starting to come along VERY nicely and I love it. Needs to make sure he is focus on gaining some size as that will assist him in blocking, getting down field and the overall speed of the ball. Kid is very good and just looks to get better. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and definitely at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Tyler Shaw, WI
Really liked what I saw out of Tyler at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He is a long athlete that is snapping with good power and confidence. Love to see him focus on leaning back more so he goes towards the punter and not up/forward. Falling forward will cause the ball to rise a bit and lose some accuracy. Kid has tremendous upside and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. WATCH HIM at VEGAS XXIX.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Caden Bolz, KS
Caden did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good power in his hands. Ball is quick and he has no problem hovering in the .8s at all times. By VEGAS XXIX, I want to make sure he is getting his eyes/head all the way through as this will greatly increase the overall speed of the ball AND the accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Jude Pedrozo, OH
Jude continues to impress me and didn’t let up at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and is snapping with a great deal of confidence. The upside on this kid is off the charts and he could make the TOP 12 in January if he continues to snap well. Overall accuracy and consistency is what I will be focused on seeing at VEGAS XXIX. He needs to know he can be one of the greats.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Austin Sullivan, NY
I liked what I saw out of Austin at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is very large Long Snapper for his age and has a good snapping motion. Very fluid Long Snapper. I like his form and I want him to trust it. If he was to trust his form and really let the ball fly, he will be able to get well under .90 by fall and definitely by XXIX in January. TONS OF POTENTIAL on Austin and when his legs get fully locked and timed up, he will dominate. LOVE HIS ATTITUDE.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Dominic Serapiglia, PA
Dominic did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good overall form. Ball is tight and he is showing some good accuracy. Like to see him increase the speed of his legs as they are just a tad behind his very quick hands. If he can get his timing locked down, he will be snapping under .77 by VEGAS XXIX…easily. Increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings as well. Good upside and always improving.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Quentin Skinner, GA
Skinner, AKA Mad Dog, had a solid weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He can EASILY snap a D1 ball right now when he is on. Every once in awhile, he will forget to follow through and the ball will die. If he can fix that, and I know he can, he can be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by next Vegas if not sooner. CONSISTENCY will be his biggest thing to focus on.

Recap Article of GA Fall Camp (10/11)

Georgia PosterRubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on October 11th for their fall camp. The camp had perfect weather and the talent was absurd.

Long Snappers came out from GA, TN, KY, AL FL, SC, TX, MS & OH 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 Anthony Ratliff (GA, ’16)! Ratliff, who has recently been offered a preferred walk-on to Penn St., was on fire all day. He was snapping with incredible confidence and was dominant in the speed competition. Kid was handling pressure as well as anyone around. He is ready for college now!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Jake Munoz

    Jake Munoz

    Scott Meyer was outstanding all day in GA. The more he just lets the ball go, the better he is. Might be the smoothest Long Snappers in the country.

  • Jake Munoz continues to have some of the quickest hands I ever worked with at Rubio Long Snapping. Once he locks down his consistency, it is all over for the rest of his class.
  • Sean Somers is one of the toughest and hardest working Long Snappers in the country and it showed in GA. Kid has really improved.
  • Colton Piatt was snapping with solid confidence and showed very good accuracy.

Notables: Dan Patterson, Koby Pyrz, Wyman Baxley, Connor Caffrey and Jacob Holman

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Matthew Smith

    Matthew Smith

    Jacob Potter is as strong as they come and has done a good job of being looser. Time for him to dominate a camp from start to finish.

  • Matthew Smith might have the most potential of anyone in his class. Once it clicks, he will crush the rest of the 2017 kids.
  • Raymond Freeman is built very long and was just dripping with potential. Kid can throw heat and just needs to make sure it gets under control.
  • Thomas Bowling was smooth, accurate and right on target all day.
  • Callen Davidson has an excellent attitude and ball. Kid is ALWAYS moving up the charts.

Notables: Pierce Brennan, Willis Brown, Joe Christian, Jack Colwell, Brandon Whitfield, Brooks Tryon, Colin Scott, Jacob Rubenstein, Chandler Moody, Ryan McNeil, Gabe Hantz

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • James Rosenberry

    James Rosenberry

    Jarrett Key was VERY impressive all day in GA. He is built well, always smiling and throws good height. Keep a close eye on him at VEGAS XXVII.

  • James Rosenberry is smooth as they come and always moving in the right direction. Uses his whole body very well.
  • John Raines showed me great things all day in GA.
  • Parker Lefton is big, strong and has great form. Like a machine when he is snapping the ball.
  • Dillon Hayes was hovering in the .7s all day and is one to keep an eye on at VEGAS XXVII.

Notables: Trey Corley, Camren Wood, Jacob Hall

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Luke Smith

    Luke Smith

    Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner left absolutely no doubt he is the best Long Snapper for the class of 2019 in the country. He already has the ability to snap in the .5s and already has a full scholarship offer. Form is impeccable and he has the strength of a college athlete. Consistency and crushing his opponents are the next step.

  • Luke Smith looks like a high school senior and can snap like one as well. Huge upside for this kid from GA.
  • JC Vega is a very smooth Long Snapper with wonderful form and he is really coachable.
  • Jude Pedrozo came down from OH and left no doubt the midwest will be good for Long Snappers in the coming years. Built well and snaps hard.
  • Thomas Johnstone was impressive from start to finish.

Notables: John Farris, Mason Napper
