Recap of the CA Camp (3/6/16)

CA Camp2016Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 6th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from CA, AZ, NV, CO & UT to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was John Aloma! Aloma was on fire all day and Utah Ute commit was the first Long Snapper to ever win the accuracy and speed competition. His confidence is overflowing right now and his ball jumps back to the punter. He is looking ready for college now!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker was the best overall Long Snapper in attendance. His form is fantastic and his hands are rockets. ZERO wasted movement. Ball pops right out of the gate. UCLA got a great one.

  • Damon Johnson was outstanding all day. His ball seems to pick up speed on the way back to the punter. Very driven Long Snapper that does all of his speaking with his snaps. USC is lucky to get him

  • Riley Shackelford just committed to Portland State and you could see why they offered him a full ride. Kid is good, thick, strong and powerful with his snaps. Ball moves and his smooth.
  • Koby Walsh, who recently committed to UCLA as a preferred walk on, handled pressure very well and could have won the whole thing
  • Curtis Hernandez might just be the smoothest Long Snapper in the class of 2016. Definitely a sleeper of that class right now. Good upside.

Notables: Tim O’Donnel, Blake Gifford, James Kozachenko, Tanner Miller and Jacob Mimoun

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs was purely poetic in his snapping all day in CA. Ball is FAST and he has really improved on his accuracy and consistency. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be. 5 Stars by XXVIII should be his goal.

  • Devin Noth showed great athleticism and when he is on, he is REALLY on. Gaining some consistency will be huge before XXVIII.
  • Karson Thomas has great size and snaps the ball with power. Could be the sleeper of his class. Great upside.
  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel has tons of potential and is a flat out stud when snaps with full power.
  • Peter Snodgrass was impressive all day. Little tweaks will make him unstoppable. Great improvement of the last year.

Notables: Koltin Anderson, Gavin Cambell, Johnny Fuentes, Michael Lacilento, Caleb Lawver, Alex Michaelsen, Andrew Toothman

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. I timed him in the low .6s and he has an excellent spiral on his ball. Very catchable. If he can get his eyes through each time, have fun out there and get set, he will be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by XXVIII.

  • Brendan Bentley had waves of brilliance, when he is on…he is really on. Needs to focus heavily on making sure he gets both of his hands on the ball and THEN snaps.
  • Charles DeRosier was very consistent and has done a great job of improving over the years.
  • Kyle Petrucci has major upside and when he trusts his form, he will punish the punter.
  • Joseph Ramos is a massive man that will simply be as good as he wants to be. If he pushes himself, he could take the top spot in his class.

Notables: Rob Fiene, Jake Radwan, Ace Thayer, James Townsend, Jac Casasante, Gabriel Cervantes and Matt Garcia

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich had a great day in CA. He moves well on his feet and can snap the ball back in the .7s. If he pushes himself a bit more with his Long Snapping, he could be one of the best ever. Consistency will be key by XXVIII in May.

  • Nathan Weneta is right on the cusp of greatness. He is growing by the second and might be the fastest running Long Snapper in his class. Kid flies through agility drills. 

  • Ryan Aguilar has tons of upside and could be one of the greats
  • Dylan Black showed good poise and he has some solid speed on the ball.

Notables: Ryan Aguilar

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS:

I was equally impressed with three 8th grade Long Snappers in attendance: Aaron Estrada, Kameron Hawkins and AJ Laux. All are working with great form and are handling pressure well. Definitely keep an eye on these three over the next couple of years.

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target

  • 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.

Recap Article of the CA Fall Camp (10/18/15)

CA
Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on October 18th for their fall camp. The camp had perfect weather and the talent was off the charts. CA is quickly becoming the hotbed of Long Snapping talent from top to bottom.

Long Snappers came out from CA, NV, AZ, CO & TX 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 Conner Kirkegaard (CA, ’16)! Kirkegaard, who has recently committed to Air Force, was outstanding all day in CA. He was snapping with a great deal of confidence (as he should be) and just letting the ball rip back to the punter. I was very impressed with Kirkegaard and Air Force will be as well!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Damon Johnson

    Damon Johnson

    Jake Cesear, who has recently committed to Wisconsin on full scholarship, left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country. Incredibly athletic and has the most upside of anyone in his class.

  • Damon Johnson, who has recently committed to West Virginia on full scholarship, was snapping smooth, crisp balls all day long. Speed is very strong and so is his attitude. His turn to win a big one.
  • John Aloma throws absolute heat back to the punter. VERY catchable ball and, EASILY, one of the best attitudes in the country. He will make a college coach very happy next year.
  • Koby Walsh continues to impress me with his drive and work ethic. Very smooth Long Snapper that will dominate when ALL of his snaps are full power.
  • Riley Shackelford can pass an eyeball test quickly and throw some severe heat back to the punter when it all clicks. Great attitude.
  • Matt O’Donoghue is thick, strong and snaps a great ball. This sleeper might no longer be sleeping.
  • Jacob Mimoun has improved as much as anyone over the past couple of years. Built very long and starting to really snap with confidence.
  • Jack Brennan has come out of nowhere and is very much in the conversation as one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Very athletic and always improving.

Notables: Kody Allen, Max Burcher, Patt Coughlin, Biago Capp, Grant Crum, Ryan DeLucia, Blake Gifford, Curtis Hernandez

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel

    Noah Rodriguez-Trammel

    Kyle Gibbs was simply a force to be reckoned with in CA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps fire back to the punter. Love to see him focus on consistency and flat out knowing he will dominate. Watch this kid at VEGAS XXVII.

  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammell has an incredible amount of upside and is great….NOW! He can pass an eyeball test from 100 yards away. Ball is quick and fast. He is VERY good.
  • Devin Noth has a frame that will be able to put on some good weight over the next couple of years. Great attitude on this Long Snapper with a nice, smooth ball.
  • Peter Snodgrass has great form and is coming along nicely. Always, and I mean always, improving.
  • Andrew Toothman has come A LONG way with his snapping and was very impressive in CA. Form is impeccable and he is doing a great job of using his whole body.

Notables: Koltin Anderson, Mark Casillas, Drake Maningo, Alex Michaelsen, Nick Rovetti

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Kyle Petrucci

    Kyle Petrucci

    James Townsend was dominant all day and proved he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. EXTREMELY athletic. Might be able to play two positions in college.

  • Kyle Petrucci is a mountain of a man with great form and potential. Needs to learn to trust his form and really let the ball fly out of his hands at all times. Incredible upside.
  • Brendan Bentley is a very smooth Long Snapper that is always improving. Kid is a workhorse and continues to impress me.
  • Andrew Domingo, pound of pound, was one of the best Long Snappers in CA. Of course, he needs to gain some pounds, but man can this kid snap the ball. Very impressive to watch him use ALL of  his body.
  • Matt Garcia has tremendous form and is the silent assassin of his class. Confidence will be key as we move forward.

Notables: Charles De Rosier, Matt Tokos

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Simon Samarzich, who has been with Rubio Long Snapping for quite some time, did really well in CA. Impeccable form and good size give him a massive leg up against the competition in CA. Good attitude and he can snap the ball in the .7s. Should be a great weekend for him at VEGAS XXVII.
  • Nathan Weneta

    Nathan Weneta

    Nathan Weneta has improved drastically over the past couple of years and is a legit contender for the top Long Snapper for the class of 2019 Long Snappers. Good frame, wonderful form and an incredible attitude make him one to watch over the next couple of years.

  • Jesse Vasquez showed me excellent form and coachability all day long in CA. Great Long Snapper already. Strength and confidence will be huge as we progress into VEGAS XXVII.

Notables: Reed Simons, Keelan O’Riordan, Owen Larson

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.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2016 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2016 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….

  • John Shannon:  This kid snaps with as much power as anyone I have ever worked with in over a decade.  The ball explodes out his hands towards the punter.  He uses his whole, strong, body really well.  Athletically, he moves with purpose and runs very hard.  His lateral movement is excellent.  I would like to see him control his body a bit more by VEGAS XXVI.  He is ready NOW for the next level.
  • Johnny Den Bleyker: Den Bleyker is EXTREMELY athletic and just destroyed the agility and tackling station at VEGAS XXV.  He moved flawlessly and made it look effortless.  Not only is he a great Long Snapper, but a true athlete as well.  Den Bleyker has very quick hands when he is snapping.  The ball flies out of the gate and is almost hard to time.  He has a great attitude and work ethic.  He is always improving. He is ready now for the next level.
  • Jake Cesear:  He is built EXTREMELY long and is, easily, one of the top athletes in his class.  Cesear has a frame that will be able to put on another 40 pounds in the next couple of years.  That will definitely make a difference on punt coverage. His starting form is very good and he is using his whole body really well. He needs to make sure he is keeping his weight back so he doesn’t fall forward and is able to block more efficiently.  There is TON of upside on this kid.
  • Ben Wyatt:  It was easy to choose Wyatt to be a member of the TOP 12.  Athletically, he ran very well and had a nice release.  He moved with purposed and was full of aggression.  He has very good control of his body.  Wyatt is a true student of Long Snapping and is always improving. He has made incredible advances in a very short amount of time. This kid has some severe raw power and tries to hurt the punter.  I love it.  Watch this kid.
  • Geron Eatherly:  Eatherly is definitely coming into his own and making a name for himself as one of the best Long Snappers in the country in his class.  His form is excellent and he uses all of his body.  I want to see him snapping as hard as possible each time, making sure he is fully reaching back on his follow through, and that he remembers to keep his balance back.  He has really easy fixes that I would expect are completed by VEGAS XXVI.  Athletically, Eatherly needs to be able to control his body a bit more when moving forward and laterally. He runs very hard.  I would like to see him have lighter feet over the bags.  He is headed towards greatness…quickly.
  • Koby Walsh:  He snaps with an incredible amount of confidence.  He is a Long Snapper that ALWAYS expects to win and I love it.  Athletically, he runs hard and with a purpose.  Walsh blocked well, had a good release, and a solid tackle.  The more he drives his elbows and just lets the ball fly, the better he will be.  He ALWAYS improves for me. He will make a college coach very happy in the near future.
  • Damon Johnson:  Athletically, he was, EASILY, one of the top Long Snappers throughout the weekend.  He runs really well.  He was fast, agile, and moved effortlessly through the agility and tackling station.  Johnson is definitely going to be a factor on punt coverage.  His form is excellent and the more he trusts it, the better he will be in the long run.  He can easily snap in the .7s and can get in the .6s IF he snaps as physically as hard as possible.  Getting his head up quickly after he snaps and making sure his spiral is completely locked down is going to be key in moving up.  You should keep a close eye on him as we finish off his junior year.
  • Charles McDonough:  Another solid jump in the rankings by McDonough after his performance at VEGAS XXV.  His form is looking very good and he is snapping with good power.  Locking down his spiral is going to be key for him.  He is rapidly moving up the rankings and could take the top spot by the summer time.  Athletically, he moves really well and showed great agility throughout the weekend. Keep a very close eye on him.
  • Logan Klusman:  Klusman really came on the scene and did very well at VEGAS XXV. He is an EXTREMELY smooth Long Snapper that snaps a very catchable ball.  The ball is tight and really quick.  Making sure he is fully following through will help a ton with his accuracy.  I want to see him throw his fingers all the way back and not just flicking them to the punter.  He won’t miss at that point.  Athletically, he runs hard with good lateral movement. He needs to get a bit more control of his body.  This kid should be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by VEGAS XXVI or the TOP 12 camp. Watch him.
  • John Aloma:  The kid snaps the ball as if he is trying to put a hole in the punter.  The ball is beyond fast. His snaps are smooth and very accurate.  Aloma is a true student of the position. I would love to see him KNOW how good he is and never snap without confidence…ever. His release point is huge for him and when he adjusts it, it is the only time he even misses his target.  Athletically, Aloma snapped, blocked, and released very well.  Being smooth and not heavy while going forward and laterally will be huge for him getting to the next level.  If he can lock down his athleticism, he is an EASY 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.
  • Connor Kirkegaard:  When he was on, he was REALLY on.  By VEGAS XXVI, I want it to be one constant weekend of domination.  Snapping full speed and with max power will be crucial in getting him to be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.  This kid can EASILY do it and needs to know he can do it. Giving his full effort with all snaps will be key.  Athletically, he runs very hard and accelerates well.  He needs to make sure he is in full control of his body at all times.  The ball is in his court and he will be as GREAT as he chooses to be.
  • Erik Dickerson:  He did exceptionally well at the agility and tackling station showing that he is a true athlete.  His movements were very smooth and fluid.  I have no doubt he will be a presence on punt coverage.  His snapping is very solid with good accuracy and speed.  He is able to hit in the .7s and has a good spiral.  Dickerson needs to make sure he is focused on getting his strong lower half fully involved to create more power on his punt snaps.  To increase his accuracy, I would love to see him make sure he gets his eyes all the way through and not pausing them towards the middle of the snap. There is TONS of potential and upside on Dickerson.
  • Scott Meyer:  Meyer is a very smooth Long Snapper with tons of upside.  When he is relaxed and just letting the ball fly, there is no one better in the country.  Athletically, he blocked well but needs to work on his agility.  Moving forward and laterally should be pretty darn flawless.  Aggression with his running and snapping will be key as well as he moves towards the next level. I would like to see him make sure he doesn’t pop out his feet when he is snapping so he doesn’t lose any power.  Snapping with his full power will be big for him.  Keep an eye on him.
  • Anthony Ratliff:  Ratliff had a great weekend at VEGAS XXV and is certainly in the lead for EVENT ELITE at VEGAS XXVI.  He is snapping with some very good power on his punts. He snaps with anger and I like it.  I would love to see him continue to work on the speed of his hands out of the gate. Quickness and no catchable hitch will be key in rising in the rankings.  Release point with his fingers will be a big help with his accuracy.  Athletically, he moved with good agility and speed. Ratliff needs to make sure he remains smooth and doesn’t look awkward when moving forward and laterally.  Trust me, keep a very close eye on this Long Snapper.

  • 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.

For the rankings section, simply go to RubioLongSnapping.com  rollover PLAYER RANKINGS, rollover which CLASS you are looking for, click that CLASS, click LONG SNAPPERS and find your name.

Be sure to check out the amazing recap video below from the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in CA. You will love the drone footage.

The FINAL EVENT ELITE Announcement!

Here it is, the final announcement declaring who will be in the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE Camp this summer in Los Angeles.

This decision was very difficult due to the amazing talent that was present in Las Vegas at the Rubio Long Snapping 12th Annual Snapping Spring Event.

I personally would have liked to continue to announce the members over time but, as you have been noticing on social media, I have been speeding it up since I know people need to get flights.

So, here we go…..you final Event Elite announcement is that……

Congratulations to these Long Snappers and trust me when I tell you, this was NOT an easy decision at all. There are several other Long Snappers that are right on the cusp of making it.

Recap of the Rubio Long Snapping CA Camp on Feb. 23, 2014

Long Snappers came out to CA to attend the Rubio Long Snapping CA Camp on February 23rd from CA, AZ, NV, IA, OR and TX  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.

The overall winner of the camp was Oregon Duck commit and current #1 Long Snapper in the country, Tanner Carew (CA, ’14)! Carew left no doubt that he is the top Long Snapper in the country. Whether he was running down field like a gazelle or snapping an absolute rocket, Carew was the man. He was calm, handled pressure very well and almost nonchalant the whole day. He is flat out ready for the next level right now. Oregon got a great one in Carew.

Top 2014 Long Snappers

  • Niko Walsh (JC, CA) continues to become more and more confident with each snap. Might just be the best PAT snapper in the country and he is always working towards becoming better. Excellent snapper and person.
  • Colin Duffy (CA) was snapping great all day and showed me that the Duke commit is working his tail off to get ready for fall camp. Kid is always improving and he is snapping the ball hard.
  • Wes Bertoni (CA) is a JC Long Snapper that has not been snapping for that long but you would  never know. He rips the ball back to the punter and is oozing with confidence.
  • Elijah Richardson (CA) might snap the hardest ball in the country. He is built strong and thick with a ton of power from his body. He has an excellent attitude and has the ability to be a great college Long Snapper.

Other notable 2014 Long Snappers in attendance: Nick Avantino, Bo Smith, Zach Smith and Sam Vea

Top 2015 Long Snappers

  • Ryan Farr (NV) is coming off his win at the 12th Annual Rubio Long Snapping camp and is still riding the wave. He is VERY confident and smooth when he snaps a ball. He was recently offered a full ride to Oregon St. and that will not be a wasted scholarship on their part, this kid can snap!
  • AJ Carty (CA) was on fire all day in CA. He is built like a D1 Long Snapper already and snaps as fast as college snapper as well. Hands are quick and he has great form. Soon, he will flat out dominate a camp from start to finish.
  • Wesley Farnsworth (NV) has some of the quickest hands in the country and, when you combine that with solid form, just makes a flat out great Long Snapper. This kid can absolutely fly on his feet.
  • Matt Foley (CA) is a Long Snapper that just continues to plug away and never stay stagnant. Always improving with his form, speed and athleticism. Well on the way to greatness.
  • Michael Poujol (TX) has an absolutely great frame and snaps a rocket back to the punter. Once he locks down his spiral, he will be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper
  • Cody Block (AZ) is a JC Long Snapper built very strong with a nice, solid, consistent ball that is always on target. He will be ready to move on in December and will be a solid pick up for someone.
  • Ryan Simmons (CA) is quite possibly the most accurate and consistent Long Snapper in the country.
  • Grant Gluhaich (CA) is, pound for pound, has the strongest snap in the country. Watching this kid snap a ball is a pure joy.

Other notable 2015 Long Snappers in attendance: Richard Wilcox, Jordan Ober, JT Bale, Peter Comaroto, Harrison Hoffman, Tommy Merickel, Mike Soto and Paul Mesa

Top 2016 Long Snappers

  • Damon Johnson (CA) was a joy to watch all day long in CA. He continues to get bigger and stronger while still maintaining his form. His ball is quick and he is definitely headed in the right direction. The more confidence he gets, the better he will be.
  • Johnny Den Bleyker (CA) might be the most athletic Long Snapper in his class. Kid moves very well on his feet and snaps a great ball.
  • John Aloma (CA) showed great promise all day. Form is nearly perfect and he snaps the ball very hard. The more athletic he gets, the higher he goes in the rankings.
  • Koby Walsh (CA) Has exceptional form and is really coming into his own. Confidence is rising and you can tell when he competes. The more athletic he gets, the higher he goes in the rankings.

Other notable 2016 Long Snappers in attendance: Grant Crum

Top 2017 Long Snappers –

  • Trevor Dhabalt (IA) was very impressive to me all day in CA. He has great form and snaps the ball with a ton of power. Keep an eye on him.
  • Caleb Lawver (UT) has improved as much as anyone in the past couple months. His form is good and he is snapping with some great confidence.
  • Peter Snodgrass (CA) showed me some very quick hands and great form. Definitely headed in the right direction.

Other notable 2017 Long Snappers in attendance: Austin Roberts
