Recap of the College Camp

Overall Champion Kyle Varnell of UAB

Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual college camp for Long Snappers either currently in a four year university or those headed to one this fall. Long Snappers from all over the map came to Tampa, FL. to train with and against the best in the world of college football.

The winner of the overall competition was Kyle Varnell of the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Kyle is a long athlete that moves very well on his feet. His ball is very smooth and catchable with excellent speed. Upside on Kyle is off the charts. He has a tremendous personality and is definitely the type of person that will be successful in whatever he chooses to do in life.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire Saturday and Sunday in Tampa. His form is darn near perfect and he is snapping the ball with a lot of power and agression. The thicker and stronger he gets, the better his overall power will be as he moves towards the NFL.

Steven Nixon of Mercer was excellent all weekend. He is strong, built well, moves like an athlete and is extremely consistent with his snapping. Not uncommon for Nixon to snap the ball in the .6s and right on the punter’s hip. Great overall personality and a Long Snapper the next generation could look up to.

Damon Johnson of USC (Southern Cal) was throwing absolute heat all weekend. Ball never even came close to .75 or higher. Damon is a very athletic Long Snapper that is driven to be the best in the country. Very powerful ball in short or long snaps.

Anthony Ratliff of East Carolin University was solid from start to finish with very accurate and consistent snaps to the punters and holders. Physically fit Long Snapper with great form and a smooth snap.

Logan Klusman of the Kansas Jayhawks was very sharp in Tampa. Body is maturing and he is snapping a very smooth and accurate ball. Ball can jump at the punter. The quicker his hands get at the start, the better he will be in the long run.

Jonathan Scandrett of Florida International University was throwing some very fast snaps back on both days. Listens well and has good upside. Ball could sting a punter if they aren’t paying attention. Built very athletically and once he extends a bit more, his ball will be more accurate and even quicker.

Peter Snodgrass of Northwestern looked extremely solid all weekend. Just heading into college and already looks like he has been snapping at the college level for years. Great upside and Snodgrass is definitely one to watch over the next couple of years.

Ian Lauvai of Sacramento State had a great camp. Thick and strong Long Snapper that was snapping pearls non-stop to the punters. Big fan of his demeanor and how calm he is under pressure.

Elias McMurry of Appalachian State is powerful and has done a great job transforming his body into that of a college athlete. When he gets his eyes through, he is as good as anyone in the country.

Grant Gustafson of Texas A&M probably had the most upside of any Long Snapper in attendance. He also can play tight end and he definitely looks the part. NFL frame right now and he can snap an NFL ball when he just lets it go.

Notables: Carson Tebbetts of StonyBrook, Chris Clore of the Colorado School of Mines, Wyman Baxley of South Carolina, Mike Curry of Penn State, Jackson Quiggle of NC State, Steven Wethli of Youngstown State, Aaron Blaylock of the Citadel and Kanyon Combs

Recap of TX Summer Camp (7/23)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on July 23rd for their summer camp. It was, by far, the most talent I have seen in TX in quite some time.

Long Snappers came out from TX, OK, LA, NM, FL, CO, KS, AR, MI, MS, OH, SD & Canada to learn from the best and get the most exposure.

The overall winner of the camp was Jordan Silver (MO, ’17). Silver was handling pressure like a champ all day and has a very smooth ball. All the tools to be a great one over the next couple of years.


TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • IMG_2384

    Logan Klusman

    Logan Klusman was tremendous all day in TX with snap speeds continuously in the .6s and even dipping into the .5s. He is a D1 Long Snapper.

  • Geron Eatherly did as he always does…snaps a perfect, smooth ball that is right on target. VERY good Long Snapper.
  • Alex Edwards has great form and was snapping rockets all day long. Love his confidence.
  • IV Seacat looked solid as he was snapping punts and pats. Little tweaks will make him flat out tremendous.
  • Bradey Sorenson was terrific at times. Smoothing out the overall package will make him incredible.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Fletcher, Thomas

    Thomas Fletcher

    Thomas Fletcher was smooth, efficient and on fire during the whole day in Texas. When he lowers his butt and really snaps the ball hard, there is no one even close.

  • Jake Pagel was snapping fire all day long. Kid is VERY good and definitely someone to watch in his class.
  • Drew Wise showed me waves of brilliance and I know he can do this at the next level.
  • Chris Clore has really trimmed up his frame and it is paying off with his snapping. Snapping full speed at all times will be huge for him.

Notables: Reeves Blankenship, Beau Branum, Justin Hathoot

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • John Raines

    John Raines

    John Raines locked down the title as the best overall 2018 Long Snapper with great snaps all day long. Very impressive young man.

  • Evan Gibson is a very strong Long Snapper that snaps with good power and I like his attitude. Form will be key.

Article & Rankings from the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in TX

TX PosterThe rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in TX on March 15th!

Champion Aaron Blaylock

Champion Aaron Blaylock

Long Snappers came out from FL, IA, CA, MO, MS, CO, AR, KS, NE, LA and TX to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Next ranking opportunities will be at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camps in NC on March 28TH and GA on March 29th.

The overall winner of the camp was Aaron Blaylock. Blaylock came on very strong in the end and was snapping with a great deal of confidence. Very proud of how far he has come in the past year.

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPER

Boudreaux, Tyler

  •   Tyler Boudreaux – He is a very good size and has a nice, solid frame.    When he is on, he is really on. His form is exceptional and he needs to    realize it by snapping full speed all of the time. Consistent, great snaps  will help him a ton in the long run; no more waves of brilliance. I just to  see one dominant snap after another. THIS KID HAS POTENTIAL.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS

Eatherly, Geron

  •  Geron Eatherly -He could easily be the most accurate and consistent Long Snapper in his class. Need to see him lower his butt just a tad more and make his hands a bit quicker. Should be solely focused on winning VEGAS XXVI and getting to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Both goals are easily obtainable. VERY good kid and will make a college coach really happy in the future.
  •  Greg Royal – He has a great frame and is one of the smoothest Long  Snappers in his class. Royal needs to make sure he follows through and  snaps the ball with full power on  all punt snaps. His form is good and he needs to trust it. He has VERY  high potential. Keep a very close eye  on him at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Parker Robinson – He is built strong and uses his power well. I would love to see him lock down his spiral  and focus on getting his eyes through quickly at all times. Parker is always improving and should be looked  at on the weekend of VEGAS XXVI.
  • Logan Klusman –  Klusman is bordering on full domination and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it happen at  VEGAS XXVI. He is big, strong and snaps with great power. He is very athletic. He also needs to make sure  he always follows completely through. His power is very good. Keep a very, very close eye on him for the  next couple of months.
  • Dylan Alexander –  When he snaps as hard as he possibly can, he is tremendous. He has good form and he  needs to trust it and just let the ball go. Dylan makes good use of his whole body when he is snapping the  ball. He is always improving. Athletically, he runs hard but needs to gain some control of his body when he  is going forward and laterally. This kid has a VERY good attitude.
  • Travis Arroyo -STRONG is an understatement. Excellent movement and flexibility for someone his size. When he snaps as hard as he physically can, he is unstoppable. Great attitude and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him win the whole event at VEGAS XXVI. Coming into his own at the right time.
  • Jon Letter – Form is darn near flawless and he is definitely one of those Long Snappers that is always improving. Love to see him snap with full power at all times. He has increased his body size and it (along with his great form) is helping a ton. REALLY want to see him focus on locking down his spiral. The ball is quick but if it has a heavy wobble on it, the punter will have a great deal of difficulty catching the snap. Once spiral is locked down, he will move way up the charts and his speed will increase, my bet is, into the .6s for a punt snap. POTENTIAL.

Notables: Bleu Willis, Eric Ryan, Alex Edwards, Cooper Cox & Tristan Thompson

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Pagel, Jake

  • Jake Pagel – Pagel really stepped up his game and dominated the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX. He absolutely explodes when he snaps the ball. There is tons of promise for this Long Snapper from TX. He has great form and lets the ball rip out of the gate. I would keep a VERY close eye on him at VEGAS XXVI. He could easily challenge for the top spot.
  • Reeves Blankenship – Reeves has a great frame and looks like a D1 athlete already at this point and he is only a sophomore. He is big framed and I would like to see him widen out a bit more to make sure he can use all of his frame without being cramped. There are tons of upsides with him. I would keep an eye on him at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jacob Rubenstein – His form is great and he keeps improving. I would love to see his eyes be a little quicker and really explode with his body.  This kid is filled with potential.
  • Caleb Cantrell – Big jump for Caleb and well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX. I love his starting form and the way he explodes with his upper body. This kid has power. His form is good. The more he trusts it, the better he will be in the long run. He can dip into the .7s and if he gets his lower half involved I can’t see him not hitting in the .6s by VEGAS XXVI.
  • Chris Clore – He is a large man that has the ability to snap a very quick ball when he just lets it go. Clore’s form is good and he needs to trust it and his strength. He has TONS of potential. He needs to keep himself leaning back, and that will help all aspects of his snapping. I will be looking for athleticism and hard snapping from him at VEGAS XXVI and beyond. Chris has a good attitude.

Notables: Jordan Silver

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS & FUTURE STARS

Edwards, Zach

  •  Zach Edwards – Zach is coming along VERY nicely. His form is looking exceptional and he is already  snapping in the .8s at 15 yards. I would like to see him extend his arms to create more whip. He is  extremely close to already having his legs be fully involved in the process. This kid is dripping with  potential and could be the next great one. Watch him.
  •  John Raines – Raines is built long and has great form already for his age. He really uses his lower half well.  The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be. He has TONS of potential and could easily take the  top spot by VEGAS XXVI.
  • Tre Rubio – His form is excellent for his age. He has come a long with his form and is always improving. The bigger and stronger he gets the better he will be. Rubio has tons of potential since he is so coachable. Watch him. His hands are quick. Locking down his spiral will help a ton in the long run.

Future Stars: Eli Chism & Phillip Borque

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.

FULL Article from the Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp in GA (11/23)

The rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping fall Camp in GA.

Long Snappers came in from FL, MS, TN, AL, OH, SC, KY and, of course, GA to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snappers.

Next ranking opportunity will be in TX on December 7th and at VEGAS XXV.

Blake Ferguson

Blake Ferguson

The best 2015 Long Snapper at the camp was Blake Ferguson. The accuracy and consistency Blake showed was uncanny. His misses were by inches and every snap is within milliseconds of each other.  The kid is a machine right now.

  • Liam McCullough left absolutely no doubt he is one of the most dominant Long Snappers in the country. I timed him a couple times in the .5s!
  • Drew McCracken was snapping with great confidence and poise. Definitely a top tier Long Snapper.
  • Hunter Womac showed great promise and improvement. Watch this TALL Long Snapper.
  • Kyle Varnell might have the most potential of any Long Snapper in the country.
  • Logan Hamilton looked very sharp and smooth. Tons of greatness from him throughout the day.
  • Ryan Parris is a very strong Long Snapper that has waves of brilliance.

Notables: Tyler Gilliam, Ben Warner, Braxton Hale and Ty Mimbs.

Meyer, Scott

Scott Meyer

The best 2016 Long Snapper at the camp was Scott Meyer. Meyer was on fire all day with speeds in the .6s and handling pressure like a champ…which he was at the end of the camp. Major move for Meyer in the rankings and well deserved.

    • Anthony Ratliff had an excellent day in GA. He has really improved his overall balance and form. Kid was throwing some very fast snaps all day. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXV. TOP 12?

    Jake Munoz was throwing some severe heat all day and will dominate once his spiral locked down. This kid is always improving.

  • Josh Brady has a tremendous frame, good form and is beginning to snap with a lot of confidence.
  • Jacob Fuqua was very sharp and impressive all day in GA.
  • Logan Klusman moved way up the charts after his tremendous performance at the GA camp. Definitely one to watch.
  • Thomas Newberg has the frame and form to take him a long way with his snapping. Size and speed will be big for him at VEGAS XXV and beyond.

Notables: Gabe Skrobot, Bradley Watkins, Tanner Sineath, Koby Pyrz, Colton Piatt and Sandy Barstow

Potter, Jacob

Jacob Potter

The best 2017 Long Snapper at the camp was Jacob Potter. Jacob had a great camp and looks to compete for the top spot at VEGAS XXV. He is built very well and snaps a strong, powerful ball.

  • Grant Miller has come A LONG, LONG way and has really transformed himself into one heck of a Long Snapper. Has all of the tools to dominate his class in due time.
  • Eli McMullen looked very impressive all day long in GA. Good frame and he listens well. Definitely headed in the right direction.

Notables: Javier King and Callen Davidson

Roen McCullough

Roen McCullough

The best 2018 Long Snapper at the camp was Roen McCullough. Roen is filled with potential and showed some great things at the camp. He looks and snaps like a junior in high school. Keep a very close eye on him throughout the next couple of years and beyond.

  • Clay James was very solid all day long in GA. Some little tweaks will really help him out. Very quick hands.
  • Cade Long impressed me with his good form and leg pop. One to watch.
  • Parker Lefton has very good form and is always improving.
  • Jarrett Key had an excellent day and could push for the top spot at VEGAS XXV.

Notables: Dillon Hayes and Camren Wood
