You Are Who You Want to Be….

Just put this on Twitter and couldn’t help but elaborate….

At some point, an average Long Snapper becomes a great one when they realize they can be as good as THEY want to be. You control yourself.

No matter how physically gifted you are, without the proper form and work ethic, you will never advance to the next level. No matter what level that may be.

Form is one thing. Having a solid attitude and believing you can do it makes you a complete package. Too many times I have seen a good Long Snapper stay just that….a good Long Snapper. Why did they not advance? Either they did not have the drive (working on form, drills, etc) or they did not believe they could do it. Coach bringing you down, parents not supportive, you are tired….suck it up. Get off your butt and MAKE YOURSELF the best. Make it happen. Stop making excuses. Do it. Done.

The great ones know they are great. Splash of cockiness in the Long Snapping world is accepted by me WHEN you can back it up and know how to toe the line. Are you hiding from a challenge (lessons, camps, events) or are you sticking your chest simply waiting for the next person/victim?

The great Long Snappers realize their potential, see it, grabs it and runs, no sprints, with it. Is that you?

VEGAS XXIX RSI Scores

Here, in alphabetical order, are the RSI scores from VEGAS XXIX! The top 12 scorers (found in bold below) advanced to the finals.

All Long Snappers were tested on The Rubio Target. Each Long Snapper was tested on 12 punt snaps where they had three normal snaps, three blocking left, three blocking right, three speed punt snaps (running in from the side and have three seconds to get the ball off once their feet are set) and 12 pat snaps where they had three normal snaps, three blocking left, three blocking right, three speed punt snaps (running in from the side and have three seconds to get the ball off once their feet are set). Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI (Rubio Standard Index): The RSI is the score divided by the average speed on The Rubio Target. You may obtain 2 bonus points for an average of .75-.79, 2 more bonus points for an average of .70-.74 and an additional 2 more bonus points if you average below .70.

Recap of the GA Fall Camp (12/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on December 18th, 2016 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from MS, AL, VA, GA, LA, SC, TN, FL, NC, IL, MI, IN, OH, MO, SC, KY & Canada all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.
The overall camp champion was Jacob Potter. Potter was excellent all day. His hands were like rockets as his ball jumped out of the gate on all snaps. Accuracy was off the charts and he was very calm and collected when he was snapping throughout the finals. He was definitely snapping with a ton of confidence and I loved watching him all day. His victory in GA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between Jacob Potter and Brock Assel below.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Prep Camps in CA, TX & GA on January 8th followed by the granddaddy of them all, VEGAS XXIX on January 13-15!

Top 2017 Long Snappers
Jacob Potter was the top 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was smooth, powerful and snapping with confidence. Ball moves quickly and jumps out of the gate on a mission. Body is strong and he has no problem getting the ball under .75. Impressive improvement on Potter.

Chandler Moody really caught my eye several times in GA. Ball is quick and he can hit under .7 when he catches a groove. I like his attitude and he has a frame that can pack on about another 40. Moody could be the sleeper of the 2017 class. Keep a close eye on him.

Dillon Manning showed great improvement and is one of the stronger Long Snappers in his class. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and can move well on his feet. Quiet and determined Long Snapper that has some VERY quick hands.

Tuck Gill was impressive in GA. His body is thick and he has a nice spiral. Impressive use of his overall solid frame. Ball is accurate and consistent.

Dominic Brocato made it deep into the finals and snaps with confidence. Coming along very nicely and always improving.

Notables: Austin Gean, Jacob Helton, Gio Miller, Ben Shirley

Top 2018 Long Snappers
Oscar Shadley was the best overall Long Snapper in this class. He is an incredible athlete and snaps one of the most consistent hard balls I have felt in some time. He is CONSISTENTLY at .68 and on target. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he does. The potential on Shadley is off the charts and he could be a tremendous Long Snapper in college.

Roen McCullough had a solid day in GA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps a smooth, powerful ball. He has no problem hitting sub .70 and has good accuracy. Moves well on his feet and snaps with a good attitude. Massive upside.

Cade Long looked great in GA. Ball is so clean and crisp every single time to the punter. Cade makes everything look effortless as he continuously snaps the ball back to the punter. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes in his class.

AJ Covan continues to impress me with his accuracy and consistency with his snaps. Notable improvement on his athleticism and speed. Covan is focused and dialed in for VEGAS XXIX and could EASILY win it.

Evan Dvorchik was beyond solid in GA. I saw him recently in WA and he was night and day better this time around. He is snapping with a ton of confidence as his ball hits under .77 consistently. Body is good and I love his attitude.

Jarrett Key was smooth and accurate. Quiet Long Snapper that is always in the mix of dominance. The more he snaps with confidence, the better he does in the long run. VERY good attitude that a coach will love in the coming years.

Brock Assel made it all the way to the finals and could have easily won the whole thing. His accuracy and consistency are off the charts. Large man with decent athleticism for his frame. Great attitude and definitely improving. Should do really well at VEGAS XXIX.

Parker Lefton looked good in GA. Thick bodied with quick hands and a consistent snap in the high .7s.

Camren Wood was VERY impressive in GA. Easily the best day he has had with Rubio Long Snapping. He is doing an excellent job of improving. Over and over throughout the day, I was wooed by Camren and his snapping.

Jake Rudolph is a good athlete with solid upside. When he is on, he is really on and has excellent athleticism.

Notables: Aidan Brock, Heath Crabtree, Dillon Hayes, Noah Hightower, Evan Jennings, Richard Landry, Brock Powers, Eli Spivey, Bailey Williams

Top 2019 Long Snappers
Quentin Skinner is a physically monstrous Long Snapper that is completely dominant and still hasn’t filled all of his potential yet. When it all clicks, Skinner could be one of the greatest Rubio Long Snappers of all time. His hands are quick and his ball is powerful. Strength is off the charts.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Great form and he is using all of his body well. He had some great snap times throughout the day and left no doubt he has really been working hard and smart. Great upside on Drew.

Christian Johnstone looked very solid in GA with his accurate and consistent snaps. Love his frame, his attitude and his upside. He could easily earn a roster spot at The TOP 12 Camp at VEGAS XXIX.

William Wagner came on strong at the end of the day in GA and left a very good taste in my mouth. Body is thick and he uses a good amount of his body. Keep an eye on him.

Chad Becker looked great in GA. His snaps get out of the gate very quickly and he has no problem getting the ball under .7. Upside on Becker is huge. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXIX.

Codey Bennett is a strong Long Snapper with quick hands and a consistent, accurate snap. He moved well on his feet and was impressive throughout the day in GA. He is definitely one to watch at VEGAS XXIX.

Mason Napper has a good frame and a smooth snap. Very good potential and I like his attitude. He has the ability to be the real deal in just a couple months. Napper might be the sleeper of his class.

JC Vega is an incredible athlete with excellent upside. Snaps speeds are good and bordering on great. Lots and lots of upside.

Zach Lassiter made it deep into the finals and could have walked away with the victory. Built long with a frame that will hold some good weight over the next couple of years. Handled pressure well.

Notables: Carson Crisp, Cade Degraw, Ford Hayes, Tripp Heath, Graham Leslie, Dylan McCardel, Cody Olszewski, Justin Wright

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….
Zane McCracken was by far the best 2020 Long Snapper in attendance and it wasn’t even close. Form is exceptional as he has been with Rubio Long Snapper for about five years! He can already snap in the .6s which is exceptional for his age. Zane is well above his age for talent level.

Jackson Worthen has great form and a solid attitude. Ball is quick and his overall use of his body is very solid for his age.

Will Benton was solid all day in GA. I like his attitude and the way he snaps the ball. Fine tuning his overall form and locking down his spiral will push him way up the rankings.

Eli Pyrz is a consistent Long Snapper with very quick hands. He moved well on his feet.

Kneeland Hibbett is a 2021 Long Snapper that was impressive for his first camp with Rubio Long Snapping. Good overall form and a solid attitude. He is already using his whole body well. Good upside.

Notables: Jake Sayer, Colby Cox, Bryan Applefield

Top 2017 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2017 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Matt Baldeck, ID
Baldeck did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in WA on October 23, 2016. He is easily one of the most powerful Long Snappers in the country. His snaps almost punish the punter when they get to him. Not uncommon for him to be in the low .7s to high .6s. Form is very good and he is using his whole body really well. Body is thick and his frame is solid. Baldeck is always improving and his athleticism is moving forward. Plays on the top team in Idaho so he is used to handling pressure. Going to be a solid pick up for a college in the next couple of months.

Eli Jenkins, WA
Eli showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on August 31, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper and his body is definitely maturing and turning into a college frame. It is really simple with Eli…the harder he snaps, the better he does. His form is very good and he really needs to trust it by just letting the ball fly out of his hands. If he can do that, he will move way up the rankings. CONFIDENCE will be key with Eli. Good attitude and listens well. Smart Long Snapper.

Jake Gibson, OR
Gibson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class and is like a machine when he snaps the ball. Uses his body well and has great form. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be. Form is so good that he just needs to trust it and never stop. Excellent person and Long Snapper.

Zachary England, WA
Zach did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is built strong with some decent feet on him. Love to see him snap AND move with the utmost confidence. Trust in his own self will help a ton in the long run. His hands are VERY quick and he does a great job of getting the ball out of the gate. Need to see him make sure he gets his hands locked on the ball before he snaps it so the spiral is there with each snap. He is so quick that he can almost jump his own gun. Very good potential.

Dan Cantrell, ID
Cantrell is a very athletic Long Snapper that was really impressive at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVII Event on January 21-22, 2016. Kid can move down field and shows good aggression. He has good power on his snaps and his accuracy is solid. Love to see him lock down the spiral and make sure he gets his lower half fully involved to gain more speed and fluidity on the ball. TONS and TONS of upside. Could be the type of player that plays two positions in college.

Luke Miller, WA
Luke did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is long athlete that moves well on his feet. True mover down field and will be a factor on punt coverage. Love to see him narrow down his stance just a tad just to increase the overall use of his legs which will give much more speed on the ball. If he can get to average under .8 by XXIX, he will move WAY up the rankings. TONS of potential on this athletic Long Snapper.

Cody Schwindt, WA
Cody showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He is a very long athlete that moves really well on his feet. Very raw talent with big upside. Form is very good and he is close to using all of his legs at all times. Love his attitude. Need to see him put on some weight and snap with full power at all times. Consistency will be key as we head into VEGAS XXVIII and beyond.

Cody Clements, WA
Cody showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in WA on October 23, 2016. Body is very thick and he has good form and power. Love to see him snap with CONFIDENCE and really let the ball fly out of his hands. Needs to move back to 25-30 yards when snapping at home to see how strong he is. Cody is absolutely dripping with potential and can be one of the best in his class.I know it and I need him to know it. Increasing his athleticism by VEGAS XXIX will help a ton in rankings. Kid can do it.

Derek Smith, WA
Liked what I saw out of Derek at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He has a good frame and is built well. Form is solid and he is using all of his body during the snapping motion really well. Athletically, he moves quickly but I would like to see him get a little more control of his body. During the snapping motion, if he can lock down his release point and snap the ball with FULL power at all times, he will definitely increase his speed to get under .8 and knock out his accuracy. GOOD potential.

Calvin Maher, WA
Calvin showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He is built very long with a frame that can easily put on some good weight in one year before college. Starting form is very good and he does a solid job of getting all the way through with his upper body. Slow motion drills to get his lower half fully involved will help a ton in gaining speed and consistency. Not thinking so much will help as well. Good potential.

Zack Jenkins, WA
Zack did well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He has a very good follow through and has the ability to hit some snaps in the .7s….at times. Need to focus on having consistent form so all of his snaps are the same. Getting his lower half fully involved will greatly increase the speed of his ball. Excellent athletic ability. Tons of potential and I liked what I saw out of him in WA.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Kyle Gibbs, CA, Committed to the Naval Academy!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Gibbs had VERY good showings at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL in July, 2016. Body is solid and he can rip the ball back to the punter. Missed being an Army All-American by about a 1/4 of an inch at best. Moves well on his feet and is really finding his groove out on the field. The more he can dominate pressure situations and not overgrip or oversnap the ball, the better he will be. Definitely headed in the right direction when he is snapping the ball and looks to only get better over the next year as he moves towards the college level.

Noah Rodriguez-Trammell, CA, Offer from Colorado State!
Noah had a solid couple days at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and moves pretty darn well on his feet for a man of his size. Extremely smooth PATs and his punts are like a machine…same snap every single time. Love to see him make his hands just a tad quicker and have no wasted movement at the start of the snap. VERY close to being a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. He is the type of Long Snapper that can just get better and better throughout college….definitely has not hit his peak yet and he is already excellent.

Alex Michaelsen, CA, Offer from Army!
Michaelsen did very well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He shows good athleticism on his feet and has the ability to be a factor in punt coverage. Ball is smooth and when he lets it fly out of his hands, he dominates and can get in the low .7s. Confidence will be big for him moving farther up the charts. Time for Michaelsen to KNOW he is one of the best in the country instead of HOPING he is. Keep a very close eye on this Long Snapper this fall and at VEGAS XXIX in January.

Harrison Hoffman, CA
Harrison did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is a very long athlete with room to easily put on about forty pounds over the next couple of years. Coming back after a year at Air Force and he is ready to go now. Ball is smooth and he does a great job in reaching all the way back to the punter. Needs to work on getting his lower half fully involved to gain more speed on the ball. Love to see him below .79 at all times by VEGAS XXIX. Hard worker and just an all-around great kid.

Jonathan Goldstein, CA
Goldstein did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is a long athlete with a frame that can put on about forty pounds over the next couple of years with the right condition coach. His snapping motion is smooth and he really gets some good speed on the ball. His snaps will be even faster once the spiral is locked down on each and every snap. Adjusting non-dominant hand will help this process. Very good upside. Size will be a major key in moving up the rankings.

Karson Thomas, NV, Committed to Nevada!
Karson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He has an excellent frame and can pass an eyeball test right now. Definitely looks the part of a college athlete. Needs to make sure he is snapping at full power at all times. Ball can be in the low .7s and I want to see it down there with each and every snap. FULL CONFIDENCE in his form and snapping motion will be in moving up the rankings. Kid is absolutely dripping with potential. Major upside.

Jeff Hansen, CA
Hansen did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is a very smooth Long Snapper with good balance and a nice snapping motion. His hands are quick and he is very accurate. I would feel pretty darn comfortable in him playing in a college game right now. It will be interesting to see how he handles the pressure of VEGAS XXIX but I have a feeling it won’t disturb him at all. Like to see him work on his athleticism and focus on snapping with full power at all times. Hansen is very solid.

Peter Snodgrass, CA
Snodgrass did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is one of those Long Snappers that is is right on the cusp of greatness and once it all clicks (hint: it will be soon), he will absolutely dominate. I have seen him snap a major D1 ball at times, but I need to see it ALL of the time. Like to see him focus on just smoothing out everything and making sure every snap is the same. CONSISTENCY of dominance is the big thing. Making sure his butt is down, making sure his hands follow through the proper way, making sure his spiral is locked down. This kid is CLOSE.

Zac Grant, NV
Zac did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is large man with good power and I like his athletic ability. Big man and he moves well for his size. Love to see him narrow down his stance a bit to create more overall speed on the ball and make sure he is not running and/or moving too high so it will be easy for him to cut and break down. Ball is smooth and he has a ton of potential. Consistency is going to be the key for him moving up the charts. I am very interested to see him in the fall and at VEGAS XXIX.

Koltin Anderson, CA
I liked what I saw out of Koltin at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. Big and strong Long Snapper with a great work ethic and attitude. Coaches dream in college. Eyes and head getting through smoothly every single time will be key in him moving forward as that will really increase his overall speed and accuracy.

 

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado)
Devin Noth, CO
Noth showed me some great things at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. VERY athletic Long Snapper that will definitely be a factor heading downfield on punts. Punt returns will have to keep an eye on him at all times he is on the field. Ball is crisp and his hands are quick. Once his butt gets down just a tad more and his back becomes parallel to the ground, he will move even farther up the rankings as he will greatly increase his speed and accuracy.

Caleb Lawver, UT
I was VERY impressed with Lawver at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a smooth Long Snapper with great accuracy and consistency. Moves well on his feet. Locking down his overall accuracy by his release point will get him into the 30’s on the Target. Literally, wouldn’t surprise me to see him when VEGAS in January. The more athletic he gets, the higher he goes up the rankings. VERY good attitude.

Steven Green, CO
Steven showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper with good starting form and powerful hands. Love to see him slow it down so he can lock down the snapping motion. Built well so if he can get his lower half fully involved, he will create a lot of speed on the ball. Legs fully locked will help a ton to get him under .8 for a punt snap. Making sure he does lay down drills to ensure a very tight spiral will help with speed and catchability as well.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Jake Pagel, TX
Pagel showed me some good things at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL in July, 2016. He is a thick Long Snapper with very quick hands that can really get the ball moving back to the punter. When he is on, he is REALLY on and has a ball that is as quick as any Long Snapper in the country. Like to see him focus on making sure he is always leaning back to maintain more accuracy and that he really locks down snapping under pressure. The kid has great upside and could be one of the greats in college with simple fixes. Solid attitude that will do well in college.

Justin Hathoot, NM
Hathoot looked VERY solid at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on August 31, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper that is a true factor in punt coverage. Body frame is good and he has room to put on some good size over the next couple of years. Needs to make sure he locks down his release point to really focus on accuracy and making sure he is hitting the target. Ball is coming out hot and he has good speed. Locking down the location will move him up to a 4.5 and even 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Keep a very close eye on Hathoot at VEGAS XXIX.

Caleb Cantrell, TX
Nice jump in the rankings and very well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. Body is athletic and his form is solid. Does a really nice job of using his whole body well and getting his speed locked down. Not uncommon to see him snapping in the low .7s. VERY quick hands and the ball continues to rise to the punter. Putting on some size and making sure he is getting all the way up a bit quicker will help out a ton. KEEP A VERY CLOSE EYE ON THIS KID AT VEGAS XXIX!

Jarrod Jacobson, TX
Jarrod showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He has a good frame and an excellent attitude. Tell him to do something and just consider it done. Hands are quick and he is always improving. Snapping with full confidence and making sure his head gets all the way through with each snap will help his speed get into the low .7s and even high .6s. Form is good and he needs to trust it. Good upside. Coaches will love him in college.

Chris Clore, TX
Clore showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He continues to work on his body and he is looking more and more like a D1 athlete all of the time. Incredible transformation of his overall frame and I am very proud of him for it. Times are right in the .7s over the summer which is a very good improvement since VEGAS XXVIII in May. Kid has been working hard and smart, and it is obvious. Love to see him focus on making sure he is really whipping his elbows through so he creates more whip on the ball and is not so rigid. Improving athleticism will be another key in moving up. Great attitude.

Noah Caldwell, TX, Offer from South Eastern OK. State!
Noah showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper with a frame that can grow and dominate in the next couple of years. Ball is smooth and he has some very quick hands. Needs to make sure he gets fully set before he snaps in two ways: with his left hand on the ball (this will help with any spiral issues) and also with his butt getting all the way down (this will help with accuracy and speed). Love his working man’s attitude and I know he can do well in college.

Steven Taylor, TX
Steven showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is getting bigger and stronger every time I see him and you can definitely tell he has been working on the side with a Rubio instructor. Form is coming along nicely. Love to see him focus on a couple things: not dragging the ball at all, making sure his balance is back and not rocking into the snapping motion. At times, he basically slowly moves into the initial snap motion and that will alert the timer, and, more importantly, the defender when he is about to snap. Needs to make sure that once he is ready, he EXPLODES! out of the gate so he is quicker. Always improving.

Caleb McKee, TX
Caleb showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper with VERY quick hands. The ball really jumps out of the gate well. So quick that I would actually like to him to make sure he gets fully set before starting the snapping motion so he gets a good grip (and spiral) on the ball. If he can get his lower half fully involved, he will absolutely crush the competition. I really think getting fully set and following through with his fingers will increase his overall accuracy. Excellent potential. Watch him this summer in TX and at VEGAS XXIX.

Ethan Zenzen, TX
Massive jump in the rankings and well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in TX. Good frame and moves well on his feet. Athletic. Form has improved immensely and he is getting some decent pop on the ball. Needs to make sure he locks down his release to gain more accuracy. LOTS of upside. Great attitude.

George Rios, TX
George did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on January 21-22, 2016. He moves well on his feet and gets his upper body through really well when he is snapping punts. Practically hands the ball to the punter. Love to see him not think so much prior to the snap and focus on getting his lower half fully involved to gain more speed on the ball. Upper body is solid and when his lower body catches up, he will dominate.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Trevor Dhabalt, IA
Dhabalt did well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a strong and stocky Long Snapper who can, at times, easily have the fastest snap in the country. He gets set, looks at you and then BOOM! the ball is in the punter’s hands. It is almost intimidating at first. Hands are so quick, it can be hard to time him. Once he gets his form fully settled in and has the same snapping motion over and over, he will lock down his accuracy/consistency and then he is unstoppable. Moves really well on his feet and is a factor on punt coverage. Quiet and solid.

Kobe Paez, NE, Committed to Chadron State!
Kobe showed me some good things at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a very athletic Long Snapper that can really fly down the field on punt coverage. Form is good and he has the ability to get some good speed on the ball. Like to see him focus on really driving his elbows more to create more whip and speed on the ball. Also, making sure he has the same form and snapping motion on every single snap will allow him to be much more consistent with his snaps. Very close to getting “it”.

Ryan Langan, NE
Ryan did VERY well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Took him a while to catch his groove in IL, but, once he did, WATCH OUT! Easily could have won the whole camp and would’ve looked great doing it. Form is solid and he is snapping a nice, hard ball back to the punter. Ryan has INCREDIBLE upside and reminds me a lot of Rubio Long Snapper Wesley Farnsworth of Nevada. True athlete that can snap. CONSISTENCY will be the key to him getting to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. KEEP A VERY CLOSE EYE ON HIM AT VEGAS XXIX.

Kyle Eckelberg, WI
Kyle showed me some great things at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Frame is solid and he uses his whole body really well. His hands are quick and he gets the ball out of the gate with no hesitation. Love to see him focus on getting his eyes through to improve his speed a bit and make sure he gets back up quicker after the snap. Blocking and being able to stop a D1 player getting through the A gap will be huge for him. GREAT upside and he should be able to show it at VEGAS XXIX.

David Bryan, WI
David did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA. He has a good frame and shows good athleticism. Very strong upper body really gets the ball back to the punter quickly. Needs to focus on making sure he gets his head AND eyes through for more accuracy and consistency. Right on the cusp of greatness and I am interested to see his progress at VEGAS XXVII.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Drew Wise, KS
Wise was on fire at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Body is VERY solid and he can pass an eyeball test from a college coach quickly. Wise’s snaps can be VERY quick and really punish the punter. He definitely goes with the notion of snapping the ball THROUGH the punter. Like to see him focus on making sure he is not overthinking the process and keeps his hands steady on the ball. I would be absolutely shocked if he isn’t a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper BEFORE VEGAS XXIX. He is good and knocking on greatnesses door.

Benji Gormley, MO
Benji looked excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He has grown a good deal and is snapping with a ton of confidence. Loved watching him snap in IL with a swagger. It was almost like he was shocked he didn’t win the whole thing. The bigger he gets, the better he will be in the long run. Kid is looking good and could/should dominate XXIX in January! WATCH THIS LONG SNAPPER.

Reid Williams, MO
Reid did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He has a thick frame and strong hands. Form is good and he showed me some good speed in IL. Love to see him not tap the ball prior to the snap as he is creating a patter which we don’t want or need. Also, making sure he is snapping with full power at all times will allow him to NEVER have a snap in the .8s again. I am really looking forward to watching him this fall and at VEGAS XXIX! Kid is dripping with potential and can be one of the greats.

Chaz Satnan, MO
Chaz did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Kid is a monster and his Long Snapping form gets better by the second. When he gets his butt down and his back parallel to the ground, he can absolutely throw heat and almost punish the punter. Hovers right in the mid to low .7s and can dip into the .6s when he trust his good form and lets the ball. Controlling that speed with the proper and consistent release point will help with accuracy. Blocks well and hard to get by him. Big upside for a pro style team. Chaz has improved EVERY SINGLE TIME I have seen him in action and that says a lot about his work ethic.

Reeves Blankenship, LA
Impressed with what I saw out of Reeves at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He has a great frame and is built thick. Definitely headed to a college body now let alone in a year from now. Ball is pretty darn smooth and accurate. Like to see him extend the ball out a bit more to gain more speed and to trust himself. Confidence will be key. Very good upside on Blankenship. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and at VEGAS XXIX.

Jordan Silver, MO
SMOOOOOOOTH is how I would describe Silver at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in TX. Frame is very good and athletic. Moves well on his feet. Passes an eyeball test and will crush it when he puts on just a tad more weight. GREAT attitude. Love to see him lower his butt a bit more in order to get more of his legs involved. This will greatly increase the speed of his ball and get him into the .7s and possibly .6s sooner than he thinks. MASSIVE UPSIDE on Silver.

Trey Icamina, LA
Icamina did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper with good, quick hands that get the ball out of the gate very quickly. Like to see him rise up a bit to use more of his large frame. Also, slow motion drills to get his lower half fully involved will help a ton to ensure he gets more speed on the ball and get up under .8 by the fall camp in TX and definitely by VEGAS XXIX. Kid has a ton of potential.

Justyce Hankins, OK
Justyce did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He has a very good frame and tons of potential. He can definitely pass an eyeball test quickly. Love to see him focus on using his whole body to gain more speed on the ball. Slow motion drills will be key to make his snapping motion smoother and lock down his consistency. Kid is dripping with potential. Spiral will be another key I will be focused on over the next couple of months as we head into VEGAS XXIX.

Dominic Brocato, LA
Dominic 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 starting form. Love to see him focus on making sure he is not bouncing prior to the snap and that he gets fully settled in before he starts his snapping motion. That will really help his overall speed and get him into the .7s by VEGAS XXIX in January. I like his attitude and he works hard.

JP Morris, OK, Committed to Mount St. Mary’s!
JP is absolutely oozing with potential after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX on February 28th, 2016. Kid can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile away and looks like a D1 tight end right now. Built really well. Needs to flatten his back at the start and then make sure he gets his lower half fully involved to gain more speed. Need to see him hitting in the .7s, with a tight spiral, by VEGAS XXVIII in May. The upside on JP is off the charts. Once it clicks, he destroys others in his class.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Joe Calcagno, IL, Committed to Penn State!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Calcagno is a monster physically and did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Built thick and he has great power throughout his body. Ball is crisp and he is snapping with very good speed right now. He has the ability to block and get his head up quickly after a great snap. In college, he will most likely drop a tad bit of weight to get his body downfield a little quicker, but right now, since he also plays line in the CCL, he has to maintain his size. Kid works hard and has very good upside. Love his attitude. The harder he snaps, the better he is. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit to see him leave VEGAS XXIX with a win and a scholarship.

Kasey Kelleher, OH, Offers to Bowling Green and Toledo!
Kelleher did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Strong Long Snapper that can move well on his feet. Ball is powerful and really explodes back to the punter. He can catch a groove and really dominate a camp and all the Long Snappers around him. Locking down his accuracy and consistency will be key as his speed is already at the D1 level. Love his attitude and he has very good upside.

Nate Durham, IL
Nate was a stud at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016 and ended up winning the whole camp! Ball is powerful and he is snapping consistently in the .7s. Body is solid and he can pass an eyeball test.

Matt Hembrough, IL
Hembrough did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. His snaps are crisp, powerful and have solid speed. He is right in the .7s and will be in the .6s by VEGAS XXIX with some more size. Love to see him be at 210 in January. Kid is an athlete and has great upside. Heck of an attitude and he works hard. Getting up when blocking is going to be a big key in getting to that 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper mark.

Kyle O’Connor, OH, Offer from Army!
Kyle did well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in PA on October 9th, 2016. He has arguably the quickest hands in the country. It is seriously hard to time Kyle at 15 yards. Love to see him adjust his tempo a bit so he doesn’t always just the snap ball right when he gets his hands set. If he can change it up a bit, he will throw off the defensive players a bit and not allow them to predict his snap. Also, his form is EXCELLENT and he needs to TRUST it by just letting the ball fly out of his hands. FULL POWER will push him into the low .6s and completely ready for college. Quiet and dominant is how I expect him to be at VEGAS XXIX.

Zach Appio, IL
Appio looked excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. CONFIDENCE is through the roof and he was snapping some absolute heat all day. He definitely had some of the fastest times throughout the day with snaps consistently in the .7s and even some dipping into the high .6s. Love to see him focus on putting on some size and making sure he gets back up quicker for blocking purposes. Ball is really crisp and pops to the punter. An extra ten to 15 lbs will do wonders for him and stopping a defender coming through the A gap. Easily could be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by the end of Sunday night at VEGAS XXIX.

Marshall Coluzzi, IL
Coluzzi was solid at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He has a good frame and can move well on his feet going forward or to the side. Form is good and he is a very smooth Long Snapper. Type of kid that just doesn’t miss and his consistency is off the charts. Every single snap looks exactly the same. Over and over. Almost can put you to sleep and that is a good thing for a punter. You always know exactly what you are going to get with Coluzzi. Love to see him to continue to focus on really driving his legs and getting all of his thick body back to the punter to increase overall speed while locking down the spiral and not overthinking. Less thinking will definitely help Coluzzi in the long run. Smooth Long Snapper that will make his punter happy.

Dylan Castro, IL
Dylan looked very solid at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Body is thick, he has good power and he is looking more and more athletic every single camp. Ball is extremely smooth and he might be one of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country. He is like a machine with his accuracy. When he really explodes out of the gate, he can EASILY snap in the .7s. Love to see him continue to work on his athleticism and make sure he is getting his head up a bit quicker after the snap to stop a rusher. Quiet assassin out on the field. Wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him break the high score on the Target at VEGAS XXIX.

Cole Stewart, IL
Stewart did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. Body is strong and his ball is catchable. Accurate Long Snapper with very good consistency. Mark my words, Stewart can easily be one of the best Long Snappers in his class IF he can speed up the starting motion of his hands. Ball tends to be a little slow out of the gate and that gives the defensive man a moment to jump him. If he can speed up his hands, he moves WAY up the rankings. I predict he dominates VEGAS XXIX.

John Davis, IL
Davis did well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He has an athletic build and snaps a very smooth ball. Form is good and he shows good accuracy. Like to see him snap with more confidence and just let the ball go. Trusting in himself and his form will push him well under the .78 mark of snapping to the punter. Confidence will be key in everything he does: snapping, blocking and running. Getting closer and I like his attitude. He has the ability to handle pressure well.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Kevin Crabtree, MA, Committed to Villanova!
Crabtree did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a large Long Snapper with good upper body power. Smooth and quick snap that is right on with his accuracy. Love to see him get his large lower half down a bit more to ensure more overall speed on the ball. Tends to keep his butt up and rush the process just a tad. Settling and really exploding will get him in the .6s and be more accurate as well. Just about to hit his stride. I would bet by XXIX, he dominates the whole thing.

Brian Keating, CT
Brian had a solid performance at the Spring Rubio Long Snapping Camp in New Jersey. Was very accurate all day, and had decent velocity on the ball. Needs to engage his legs more and try to reduce a slight hitch in his snap to make everything quicker. Know he will put the effort in and work to be great.

Carson Tebbetts, CT
Carson showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He has a good frame and moves with power through agility parts of Vegas. Like to see him gain a bit more control on his feet. Definitely comes in hot but can be a tad out of balance. Snaps are very smooth, accurate and consistent. He is like a machine when snapping. TRUSTING in his good form will help a lot with speed and getting him under .80 on a regular basis. He can do this and I know it….I need him to know it.

Harry Blair, NY
Harry showed a ton of potential at the Rubio Long Snapping camp in New Jersey. He is extremely long and was snapping very accurately all day. Think if he shifts his weight back slightly, and really explodes back to the punter rather than falling forward after he snaps he can put more heat on the ball. Combine that with the consistency he showed with his accuracy and he can be very good.

Ryan McNeil, MA
McNeil had waves of brilliance at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVII Event on January 21-22, 2016. He has a good frame and that ability to put on some good weight over the next year. Ball is smooth, catchable and he has very good accuracy. Hands are quick and they reach back well (why the good accuracy). LOVE to see him do slow motion drills to focus on using all of his legs. If he can get his long legs involved, he will put a hole in the punter and easily be in the low .7s. TONS of upside. Good attitude. At XXVIII in May, he should be focused on EVENT ELITE and nothing else.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Billy Taylor, NJ
Liked what I saw out of Billy at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Billy has a good frame and he can move well on his feet. Form is solid and he can snap a quick ball. Confidence will be key as he moves up the rankings. Love to see him not think so much and really just let the ball fly out of his hands.Trusting his form and believing in himself will help a ton. Ball can pop back to the punter when he follows all the way through. Right on the cusp of greatness.

Tristan Sokach-Minnick, PA
Tristan showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVII Event on January 21-22, 2016. First off, he can pass an eyeball test quickly. Moves well on his feet but I would like to see him focus on not running so high so he be a bit more agile. Ball has power when it comes off his hands. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the .6s by XXVIII in May and throughout his senior year. He was on my short list of TOP 12 members. He should be all over the EVENT ELITE if he does what I know he can. Very good attitude and lots of upside.

Ryan Schwind, VA
Ryan did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a very smooth and consistent Long Snapper with each snap looking the same. It is like a machine snapping out there. His overall form is good and he has solid accuracy. Love to see him focus on getting his eyes all the way through with each snap to ensure even more speed and accuracy. Ryan is right on the cusp of greatness. I KNOW he can be dominant and I need him to know it as well. He could/should DOMINATE the fall and VEGAS XXIX!

Ryan Cassidy, NJ
Ryan showed a ton of promise at the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in New Jersey on May 7th, 2016. Extremely athletic and long with a powerful snap. Needs to aim a little lower and let the ball climb naturally back to the punter. Small tweaks away from being dominant.

Nick Low, VA, Committed to Chicago!
Low did well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in NC. Body is thick and he has good power. Hands are VERY quick and his form is coming along really nicely. SMART Long Snapper with good zip. More he trusts his form to let the ball go and locks down his spiral, he will dominate. Great attitude.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Thomas Fletcher, FL, Committed to Alabama!
OFFER HIM YESTERDAY!!! COMPLETELY DOMINATED at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL and it wasn’t even close. His form is flawless, his hands are quick and he is getting bigger. No one is even close to him right now and he is, easily, the best Long Snapper in the country. You could put him in a competition with any other high school, and a heavy majority of college kids, and Fletcher would win. Just start the competition and walk away as the winner will be decided for you as soon as Fletcher touches the ball. I will say it again, Fletcher is THE BEST LONG SNAPPER IN THE COUNTRY AND IT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE

Mitch Hall, NC, Committed to Louisville!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Mitch did really well at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is still growing like a weed and has a frame that will hold at least another forty lbs in college. Ball is smooth, very accurate and he handles pressure like a champ. Snaps are fast and will be even quicker when he doesn’t ease into the snapping motion. Being a little quicker out of the gate will really get the ball flying out of his hands and make him pop in front of the recruiters. Memphis offered a great one in Mitch. EXCELLENT ATTITUDE.

Jacob Potter, GA
Potter did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a thick, strong Long Snapper with great power in his snap. Body is tough. Moving better on his feet and starting to be a factor heading downfield. Ball is smooth and catchable. Like to see him continue to get his butt down a bit more to get more of his massive lower half involved which will give him more speed. Also, driving his elbows will help with speed as well. Kid has come a long way and just continues to improve.

Raymond Freeman, FL, Committed to Air Force!
Freeman did extremely well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper that is a true factor on punt coverage. Ball is VERY fast and can punish the punter. Air Force definitely got a player in Freeman. His hands are like rockets and the ball will jump back to the punter. When Freeman just snaps with confidence and lets the ball fly, he is absolutely incredible. Locking down the spiral will move him even farther up. I would be shocked to not see him as a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper at XXIX in January.

Austin Reeves, NC
Reeves is hitting his stride and showed me some great things at the FBU TOP GUN camp and the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Reeves has a solid frame and moves well on his feet. Smart Long Snapper with a smooth release and great accuracy. Power and confidence will be the biggest factors I look for in making him a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by XXIX. Love his attitude and he is a workhorse.

Paul Lawless, FL
Lawless had a great early October fall camp in Florida. He is very long and athletic and snapped well all day. Some small tweaks in his stance by dropping his hips a little will help his ball from rising up. Great kid and attitude who is very close to being great. Relaxing and letting his body do all of the work. CONFIDENCE will be huge with him at VEGAS XXIX. No need to think at all for Lawless.

Matthew Smith, GA
Matthew did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is an excellent athlete that moves extremely well on his feet. Ball is crisp and powerful back to the punter. Ball can be very fast and when he lowers his back to parallel, he can get in the .6s. When he focuses on getting his butt down and just Long Snapping, he is EASILY one of the top kids in the state and even country. Massive amount of upside on Matthew. Watch him dominate at VEGAS XXIX.

Ryan Culbertson, SC
Culbertson did well at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Good, solid frame and he is a hard worker. Starting form is solid and he snaps a very smooth and catchable ball. Needs to make sure he just completely unleashes all of his power on every snap. When he is timid, he doesn’t drive his elbows and the ball will fall of the table towards the end of the snap to the punter BUT when he snaps with confidence and lets the ball fly, he is completely different and dominates. Moving in the right direction and has good upside. Great kid.

Thomas Zozus, FL
Tommy did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is sitting on a ton of potential and is definitely one to watch over the next year. I fully expect him to dominate this fall and make a major name for himself at VEGAS XXIX in January. Body is good and he can pass an eyeball test. For his size, he moves really well on his feet and is an athlete. Love to see him focus on not rolling into his snap and making sure he is VERY quick out of the gate. Kid is dripping with promise. WATCH HIM.

William Stover, NC
Stover showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He moved well on his feet during the agility section of Vegas and his hands are quick. Nice, powerful snap that gets back to the punter with good accuracy. Love to see him really focus on getting his lower half fully involved to create even more speed on the ball. Also, locking down his release point will help with his consistency. He is very close to being “there” with his snaps. Keep a very close eye on him this summer and fall. He should absolutely dominate XXIX.

Recap of the FL Fall Camp (10/2/16)

Lindale Football Stadium at NightRubio Long Snapping traveled to Florida on October 2, 2016 for their fall camp and the talent there was tremendous. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling across the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them ready for the biggest event for specialists in the country, Vegas XXIX. Next stop is PA on Sunday, October 9th!

Long Snappers from across the state of Florida were on hand to obtain the best instruction and most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Oscar Shadley (FL, ’18)! Oscar was very impressive all day, snapping fast and accurate footballs through the whole morning session. He carried that momentum over to the afternoon where he reached the finals of the winner’s bracket for the accuracy competition, and was dominant in the speed competition having 5 of his 6 snaps in the .6s (and his worst was .72)! He won the camp through a dominant effort in the overall championship round. He is very well developed physically and has the confidence to play at the next level. Expect a huge performance out of Oscar at Vegas XXIX!

Top 2017 Long Snappers

lawless-paul

Paul Lawless

Paul Lawless (FL) was the pick to win the competition after the morning session. He was very smooth all day and effortlessly gets the ball back to the punter. He has a tremendous frame, very long and can put on more weight without any issue. He uses his legs very well for how tall he is, just needs to focus on keeping his butt down when he is getting set in his stance to help his snap from going high.

Ethan Willis (FL) had a great camp and shoed a lot of promise throughout the day. He has extremely long arms and very quick hands that allow him to get the ball back very quickly. After seeing himself during the film session, Ethan started to be more conscious of his legs and needing to be more aggressive and quicker with his leg lock. Continuing to work on that as well as flexibility will be huge for him.

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Clay James

Clay James

Clay James (FL) was off the charts all day and was the winner of the winner’s bracket of the accuracy competition. His form is darn near perfect and really uses it to his advantage to snap very fast times (on top of being in the finals for the accuracy competition, he was also one of the last two in the speed competition with camp champion Oscar Shadley). Clay has the ability to be dominant when all things are clicking, and expect him to show this in Vegas XXIX.

Zach Castano (FL) really impressed through the morning and afternoon sessions. His form was extremely sound and was very accurate. Very athletic kid who moves very well and was hungry to learn everything he could about Long Snapping; was very attentive and engaged in all classroom session. Really enjoyed working with Zach and look forward to see his continued improvement.

Braxton Baker (FL) was probably one of the smoothest Long Snappers at the camp. His ball cut through the air with ease, and everything was effortless to him. Big strong athlete who needs to develop his flexibility a bit more to allow his legs to fully lock out. Once he gets the full power out of his legs, punters better watch out because the ball will be humming back.

Evan Dvorchik (FL) had a great camp. His form is almost there, and with continued focus on not popping up when he snaps will make it perfect. He snapped from very good balls throughout the day, but fine tuning his technique just the tiniest amount will make him more consistent and become very, very good.

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Enzo Anthony

Enzo Anthony

Enzo Anthony (FL) was very close to winning the whole camp. He came back through the knockout round of the accuracy competition and ended up winning the finals vs Clay James. Enzo shows tremendous upside for someone of his age. His form is so sound and he snaps such a tight spiral. As he continues to develop physically and get a little more power in his snap, he is going to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Frank Melgarejo (FL) impressed all day. He is a very physically developed for his age, and with continued work will become a tremendous Long Snapper. A little work on weight distribution (sitting back at the beginning, sitting back down at the end) along with flexibility (not popping up so much as he snaps) will be monumental in his development. I know he will continue to work on those and am excited to see him continue to develop!

Griffin Kaye (FL) had a very good camp. His form is very good, and when he decides to get set, he can snap with the best of them. The six inches between the ears will the biggest hurdle for Griffin, as he needs to stop thinking so much and just get set and snap the ball. When he does that he is great.

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr (FL) is extremely talented for his age. His flexibility is off the charts, and his form is darn near perfect. He snaps a very tight spiral that cuts through the air effortlessly. Excited to see Jacob continue to develop physically as he has a very bright future ahead of him!

Clay Caldwell (FL) took some very purposeful strides in his development at this camp. He came in very raw, but his attentiveness to detail and eagerness to learn from others, he came out a very more polished Long Snapper. I know Clay will continue to take all the fundamentals and skills he learned home and will come back to his next camp a very much improved Long Snapper.

Advice to Incoming Freshman from College Long Snappers

I offer up a ton of advice on this blog, my Twitter, my Facebook, through texts, e-mails and my camps. In my opinion, it is all good.

But, sometimes, the youth would like to hear from others as close to their own age as possible. No problem.

I asked several Rubio Long Snappers, who have just finished their first collegiate season of football, a simple question, “What is one bit of advice you would give to an incoming freshman Long Snapper now that you have essentially wrapped up your first year?

Here are their responses….

“Earn the respect of non specialists by working hard in the weight room and conditioning so they don’t just stereotype you as being just a “longsnapper”. Will go a long way with the coaches and put you a step ahead of the guy in front of you if there is one.” Conor Fry – North Carolina

“Never be satisfied. Although you may not come in and be the starter the first day you step on campus, once you earn that starting spot on the team you cannot get complacent. If you get complacent, somebody will catch up to you. While you are resting, someone else is getting better. Are you working? Or are you resting?” Reid Ferguson – LSU

“Have fun with it, enjoy the experience. If you redshirt embrace it, and get better. Make sure you are healthy and physically fit coming into your first year. The weight room and running will be difficult, so make sure you are prepared, and finally make sure to always be on time, which is 10 minutes early. That’s the best advice I can give, really kids just got to enjoy the gift they have been given.” Nolan Dowling – Western Kentucky

“Come in CONFIDENT, not cocky. They need to remember that they are a freshman again, no one cares that you were number 1 in the nation or a 5 star snapper. Although they should because they couldn’t do it. And don’t expect special treatment from coaches anymore. Once you step on that field you’re just another player, not someone they have to impress anymore.” Jake Abraham – Georgia Southern

“Realize that the strength staff is on your side. They will make fun of your athleticism and your position at first just keep working hard and keep your confidence up and they will come around. Also, to Enjoy the Process. The off season workouts, summer lifts, practices, and season are really hard and tiring. Find your own way to make them fun. Lastly, dont think of what you’re losing out on (parties & junk) but think about how much you’re gaining. (Discipline & work ethic)” John DePalma – West Virginia

“Be prepared for anything! Coaches will go to extreme lengths just to see how mentally tough a snapper is.  You’re gonna have bad days or a bad snap every now and then; it is how you respond to adversity that matters.  If coach is chewing you out and up in your face just nod yes sir and move on to the next snap.  Mental toughness is key!” Steven Romero – New Mexico

Have a short memory.  If you have a bad snap, coaches are going to get on you for it but you need to come back and respond.Duke Moran – CAL

Listen to the guys who currently share your position on the team. You may think you know all there is about physically snapping, but being a snapper entails much more than just throwing the ball between your legs (as you know). The mental aspect is more than half the game, and by creating a comfortability level with the men you share all your time with is essential to your success. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others for help, because in reality, the people you want to ask were all freshman at one point and have taken your path before. They don’t care how good you were in high school, they want you to excel at the collegiate level and to benefit the team in all possible ways.” Joe Marvin – Penn St. 

For me one thing I never did was really practice snapping on a command and I really struggled with that coming into camp. So if I was going to give advice going into your first year for a long snapper I would say to be able to snap on a command along with on your own. Be able to snap out of your comfort zone for sure.Matt Cincotta – Marshall

You have to come in with a mindset that you are the best but practice like you are second string and fighting for a job. Football has a lot of distractions but the reason you are there is to get your education first. Basically this is something you have never experienced so you have to do something you have never done before.Daniel LaMontagne – Furman

Make a great first impression on your coaches, teammates, and professors. Also to enjoy and soak it all in because it’ll fly by before you know it.Scott Daly – Notre Dame

Not everything is gonna go exactly how you planned out in your head but just keep grinding, it’ll be worth it in the end.” William Eads – Middle Tennessee

GO TO CLASS!!! If you don’t go, YOU FAIL! Also learn how to manage your time. Time management is key for a college football player, especially of you make the travel squad. Study, study, study. If your grades are not up to par the coaches will leave you at home, it happened to a few guys here.Ryan Eustace – Arkansas St.

Always stay warm and make sure you’re paying attention to the game because standing on the sidelines will cause your legs to get cold, and there are a lot of distractionsRyan DiSalvo – San Jose St.

Come to the practice, lift, or run with an intense intrinsic attitude to improve yourself because it so easy to just go through the motions being that specialists are sort of dismissed by the coaching staff at times.” Jeff Overbaugh – San Diego St. 

“The most important thing to remember as a freshman long snapper on a college team is to have fun. Seriously, it sounds cheesy but taking this sport too seriously will be the death of you. You have worked so hard to get to where you are, and now that you’re here it’s important to take a step back and appreciate what you’re a part of. I wish all of you the best of luck. You have accomplished something few people can, and you should be beyond proud.Sodie Orr – Cal Poly SLO

You’ve made it to college however you have not arrived. You must work just as hard as you did making it to where you are now.Greg Hohenstein – Bowling Green

Which Rubio Long Snapping Camps Should I Attend and When?

One of the most common questions that I get asked is, “Which camps should my son attend and when?”.

I have been running Long Snapping lessons, camps, and national events for over a decade now so I know what works out the best for the athletes. In a perfect world, here is exactly what I would do as a parent, and most likely will be doing before you know it.

6th Grade

  • If you feel your son is NOT ready mentally and physically, have him attend at least one Rubio Long Snapping camp as a spectator.  See what it is all about.  I would choose a 1 Day Camp in CA, NC, GA, TX, NJ, FL, WA or IL.  This will give you a chance to meet me and understand the way I work and speak.  Listen to instruction.  Become familiar and comfortable with the camp scene. There is no charge for this.
  • If you feel your son is ready mentally and physically, contact me and we can discuss him actually participating in a Rubio Long Snapping camp. I would choose a 1 Day Camp in CA, NC, GA, TX, NJ, FL, WA or IL. The sooner they get the form down, the better they will be in the long run. Once I get their form down, we just wait for their body to develop and BOOM, you have greatness.

7th Grade

  • If mentally and physically mature enough, I will allow a 7th grader to attend my camps. The sooner they get the form down, the better they will be in the long run. Once I get their form down, we just wait for their body to develop and BOOM, you have greatness.
  • If you feel your son is NOT ready mentally and physically, have him attend at least one Rubio Long Snapping Camp as a spectator.  See what it is all about.  I would choose a 1-day Nike Camps in CA, NC, GA, TX or IL.  This will give you a chance to meet me and understand the way I work and speak.  Listen to instruction.  Become familiar and comfortable with the camp scene. There is no charge for this.
  • Start private lessons with either me or someone I recommend.  Contact me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) and I will discuss the options.
  • Buy the Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping Instructional DVD.  This is the best way to learn.  Plus, you can watch it over and over again.

8th Grade

  • This is the time to begin attending Chris Sailer Kicking Camps.  I would choose the 1 Day Camp in CA, NC, GA, TX, NJ, FL, WA or IL.  I would attend ALL 3 camps when Rubio Long Snapping comes to your region of the U.S.  We come to each of these locations 3 times per year (Fall, Winter / Spring, and Summer).
  • At this age, if mentally and physically mature enough (major bonus if they have been to my camps), they should start the Vegas Events. No one will expect anything from an 8th grader, so this should be the least stressful Vegas they will ever encounter. Once again, the sooner they go this, the better they will be in the long run.
  • Continue private and group lessons with Rubio and/or a Rubio Long Snapping private coach.  Contact me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) and I will discuss the options.

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 2018 Long Snappers from the NC Camp (11/22)

The rankings are completed for ALL  2018 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping fall Camp in NC.

Long Snappers came in from VA, GA, SC, OH, FL, MD, PA TN, NY and, of course, NC 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.

Turner, Noah

Noah Turner

The best 2018 Long Snapper at the camp was Noah Tuner. Noah was great all day. He can already snap in the mid .7s and snaps with a lot of power. Really like his attitude and his drive.

  • Oscar Shadley showed great athleticism and tons of potential. Once he widens out a bit, he will dominate.

Notables: Drew McDaniel, Chase McPherson

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.

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 highlight tape from the Rubio Long Snapping fall camps in NC and GA below…
