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.

Rubio Long Snapper Keaston Sinicki Commits to UNC at Charlotte!

Rubio Long Snapper Keaston Sinicki (NC, ’13) has committed to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte as a preferred walk-on!

Sinicki, a TOP 12 member, has steadily improved since starting with Rubio Long Snapping in 2011. He has always handled pressure extremely well and even won the NC Spring Camp in 2012.

He is a great, smooth Long Snapper with excellent speed and a wonderful attitude. I am very proud of how far he has come with his Long Snapping.

Congratulations to Keaston Sinicki!

The Final Snap of the 11th Annual Event

Every year, Rubio Long Snappers impress me more and more. Their snapping has become jaw-dropping at earlier ages. They are bigger, stronger, faster much sooner than they used to be with their bodies and, yup, even minds.  They, and their parents, have grown into a massive family (which is what I have always hoped for with Rubio Long Snapping). Seriously, think about it, you really don’t see a lot of Long Snapping families eating solo out in Vegas:)

The big national events really bring everyone together. You have Long Snappers, and their families, from all over the world coming to one place to do their best in an extremely stressful environment. Many come and do wonderful their first trip out, while many come and absolutely bomb on their first venture to the desert. More often than not, it is the later (hence why I always say to go as soon as you can in your career).

This video, is yet another example of what I am talking about in being a Rubio Long Snapper. This video personifies emotion and desire.

To say Emmett Odegard, the Long Snapper in the video, has come along way with his snapping would be like saying the Grand Canyon is a crack in the ground. He has been with Rubio Long Snapping for three years and started slow but listened….and listened….and listened….until it all paid off.

Emmett, who was absolutely fantastic all weekend, stormed into the finals as the #2 seed and had some intense battles along the way (7 total snaps against Keaston Sinicki, 5 of which they both scored on!) and was ready to take on, cue the music, Cole Mazza (who was the top seed).

In the video, Emmett was down three points behind Mazza and had to make a 3 pointer to stay alive in the finals. Basically, he had to be perfect and snap the ball through the middle rectangle (one with the chains) or he was done and Mazza would win.

This video shows the emotion of the Long Snapper AND the crowd. This video shows the camaraderie, that so many Long Snappers now possess and I love it. This video shows the desire and compassion of two Long Snappers. Both were exceptional and both should be proud of themselves. I am.

Two great examples of Rubio Long Snappers.
