Recap of the NC Spring Camp (3/11/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on March 11th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Maddie Golden, Rubio and Joe Shimko!

Long Snappers from 13 states all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was overflowing with talent with many committed seniors and also tons of new Long Snappers.

The overall champions of the camp were Maddie Golden (speed) and Joe Shimko (overall). Shimko has won four camps in the past year and continues to be amazing on the field. He is one of the only Long Snappers I have ever seen that actually gets better as the day goes on. The more tired Shimko gets, the better he ends up snapping the ball.

You can see the full finals video with Drew Little, Will Cobb, Christian Johnstone, Joseph Shimko, Aaron Brannock and Bryce Eimer below…

Maddie Golden

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Maddie Golden was amazing in NC. His speeds were so good that I had to re-time him several times as they were so good. Easily was snapping sub .75 at 15 yards with tons of snaps in the .6s. He won the overall speed competition with snaps in the low .6s.

Brock Assel is looking very solid (be sure to check out his hair!) and was snapping with great consistency. Upside is very solid and I am loving his work ethic. Air Force got a great one.

Trey Gable was very impressive in NC. Form is excellent, he snaps well under a pressure and he has a tremendous attitude. His snapping motion has minimal wasted movement and he can rip the ball back to the punter.

Notable: Graham Finklea

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Mad Dog

Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner left absolutely no doubt he is the best junior in the country. Moves well on his feet, he is massive and he is as consistent as anyone in the country. Ball is so smooth yet so powerful. It is a pure joy to watch and LSU is lucky to have him coming in two years. Kid is a flat out stud.

Drew Little was on fire in NC and continues to show me why NC State had no problem offering him a full scholarship during his junior year. Form is excellent and he snaps the ball with great force. So smooth and a tremendous worker that is always improving. Great attitude.

Christian Johnstone can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile away, moves well on his feet and has a great personality. He snaps a really catchable ball that will stick to your hands.

Joe Shimko was incredible in the finals and just ripped the ball back, time after time, right into the three hole. The more exhausted he gets, the more dominant he becomes. It’s just crazy to watch.

Douglas McLaughlin was solid all day in NC. He has a great frame and is one of the most accurate/consistent Long Snappers in the country.

William Wagner has done a great job improving his overall frame and was snapping with a purpose. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Luke Hosford was impressive in NC. Form is great and he has excellent size. Watch this kid.

Rhys Suter is coming off an injury and you would never even know it. Form is great and he was having no problem snapping in the mid .7s.

Luke Payne had a solid day in NC with extremely accurate and consistent snaps. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be in the long run.

Brandon Hurst showed me tremendous upside. When he is quick with his snapping motion and snaps hard, he is as good as they get.

Mark Fuchs has great starting form and is smooth when snapping the ball. Leading with his elbows and snapping with full power will help a ton.

Griffin Kaye showed incredible upside and there is no doubt he can snap at the next level.

Liam Crowley did well in NC. Looks like he is continuing to grow and has no problem snapping a ball sub .79. Great upside.

Notables: Peter Griffith, Alex Harper, Carson Knight, Matt Parrino, Justin Pollock, Nathan Smith, Kevin Thompson, Heath Tripp

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Will Albright

Will Albright looked excellent in NC. He moves extremely well on his feet, he has a frame that can easily put on some good weight over the next couple of years.

Zane McCracken is really improving well as he is snapping with confidence and snapping an extremely smooth ball. When his eyes go all the way through, he can easily get sub .75. Getting bigger by the second.

Bryce Eimer made it into the finals with an incredible RSI score. Accuracy is tremendous and he is starting to really snap well under pressure. Great attitude.

Jake Foggia was very solid in NC. Form is coming along nicely and he is beginning to snap with a great deal of confidence. Excellent attitude.

Will Cobb was snapping with excellent accuracy and made it to the finals. Easily could have won and only lost by inches. Gaining power and strength will be huge for Cobb as we head towards VEGAS XXXII in May.

John Bergeron looked very good with excellent form and a solid attitude. Balance is very good and he is always improving.

Byron Floyd is big, strong, powerful and can rip the ball back to the punter sub .75. Really impressive Long Snapper and person.

Ryan Purcell is smooth, accurate and is growing by the second. Great upside.

Peter Haynes is an athletic Long Snapper that is using his whole body very well. Locking down his consistency will be huge as we move ahead.

Notables: Alex Applefield, Ethan Lane, Ted Busbee, Will McCoy, Zach Cowan, and Cheyenne Wray

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker

Nick Walker looked very solid in NC. He is growing by the second and can already get the ball back to the punter in under .75! The upside on Walker is off the charts if he keeps improving at this rate.

Austin Turner

Austin Turner was excellent in NC. I just saw him a couple of months ago and, I kid you not, he looked like he had grown a foot in the last couple of months. Form is excellent, ball is tight and his upside is off the charts. He could easily be the top Long Snapper in his class at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Aaron Brannock had a great day in NC and made it all the way to the finals. Tremendous accomplishment for a freshman. The less he thinks, the better Brannock will do in the long run.

Oden Pierce showed me good things in NC. Great frame and he moves very well on his feet.

Alex McLaughlin did well in NC with solid athleticism and a nice, catchable ball. If he can eliminate his hitch by VEGAS XXXII in May, he could find himself staring down a TOP 12 Camp Invite.

Recap of the Underclassmen Invitational

On July 20-21, Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual Underclassmen Invitational. This camp has quickly grown to be a favorite amongst Long Snappers, the parents and the staff of Rubio Long Snapping. It is basically like a mini TOP 12 Camp with Long Snappers from the classes of 2019-2022.

Day 1 was filled with instruction, lively competitions, social media seminar by Terry Crosby (always a good time), a game show (Long Snappers dominated!) and a catered pasta dinner for all participants and their families. One of the great things about this camp is some of the meetings are done without the other party. For instance, when Terry Crosby was speaking to the parents, the specialists were in another area learning about nutrition and lifting. Then, on the flip side, when Crosby was speaking to the kids, the parents were not in the room. This definitely leads to some great moments within the Rubio Long Snapping family.

Day 2 was all about competition and one-on-one instruction. When the Long Snappers weren’t going head to head on The Rubio Target, they, and their parents, were brought over to work with Rubio in a one-on-one setting. Time and time again, you could hear “Ahhhhhh!” “Ohhhhhhhhh” “I knew there was something off, thanks for clearing it up Rubio!” It was a great four hours for all involved and everyone got better!

The overall winner was Luke Payne (2019, GA). Luke was hot off a win at the Rubio Long Snapping GA Summer Camp and he left no doubt he is headed for greatness. His ball is beyond accurate, he has good consistency and the kid handles pressure like a true champion. If any Long Snapper is going against Luke and he scores first, the game is usually over.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Evan Dvorchik looked great out in GA. He continues to fine tune his body and he is leaving no doubt he can snap at the next level. Strong Long Snapper that can snap in the low .7s when he is on. I am looking forward to watching Evan snap at the TOP 12 Camp. Great attitude.

Dillon Hayes was smooth as silk in GA. His ball speed was picking up really nicely and he continues to be one of he most accurate Long Snappers in his class. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for him in the coming months.

JC Vega looked outstanding in GA. Easily one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. When he gets fully set, he can absolutely rip the ball back to the punter. Hitting in the .6s is child’s play for JC. Consistency of snapping motion and putting on some size will be huge for him.

Evan Dvorchik has good size for a Long Snapper and he can snap the ball into the low .7s and even high .6s when he is on. The more athletic he becomes, the higher he will move up the rankings. Great attitude and he works yards.

Trey Corley showed great promise at the camp in GA. Body is excellent and the potential for Corley is off the charts. Speeding up his hands will make his ball quicker out of the gate and increase the overall speed of his ball.

Payton Dunagan has incredible flexibility and hovers right in the middle of the .7s. His athleticism is solid and he is always improving.

TJ Harvey came out and had a great day in GA. Ball is smooth and powerful. Very fast Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s. Excellent attitude.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has extremely minimal wasted movement. Lefty that is absolutely incredible when his spiral is on and tight.

JC Vega is a physically fit Long Snapper that can bring a ton of heat on the ball. Moves well on his feet and is quick with his hands. Very good potential on Vega

Christian Johnstone is a tall, athletic Long Snapper that is right on the cusp of greatness. He can hit in the .7s and looks to dominate VEGAS 30 this May. Keep a very close eye on Johnstone.

Mason Napper is a thick and strong Long Snapper that has a nice ball back to the punter and holder. Body is great for a Long Snapper. Getting his eyes through will really push him up.

Zach Lassiter was snapping some great balls in the speed competition. He was hitting in the .7s. He could dominate VEGAS 30 and find himself a TOP 12 Camp spot

Cody Olszewski is a thick and strong Long Snapper that was snapping some heat in GA. Love how quick his hands are and you should definitely keep an eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Carson Knight showed good promise and was able to get the ball into the upper .7s on occasion. Great upside

TOP 2020 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr left no doubt he is the best freshman Long Snapper in the country. He was snapping, easily, in the .6s and was accurate while doing it. Form is excellent and he is gaining some good size. He is absolutely incredible to watch at his age.

Jackson Worthen is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class and handles pressure well. Very accurate and consistent that works hard.

Zane McCracken has great form and is gaining some solid size. Smooth and accurate Long Snapper with a great upside.

Notables: Michael Bowles, Sam Doughty, Xander Echols, Jake Foggia, Grant Reid

Recap of the GA Summer Camp (7/12/16)

10150696_968472283228902_7682949758643236322_nRubio Long Snapping traveled to Georgia on July 12th, 2016 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be back in Georgia on December 18th. You can register for that camp HERE

Long Snappers from MS, OH, GA, IL, FL, MA, TN, SC, TX, AL & VA all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

Raymond Freeman

Raymond Freeman

The overall camp champion was RAYMOND FREEMAN (FL, ’17)! Freeman caught fire early in the day and never stopped. Came close in the accuracy contest, did well through the agility section and was outstanding in the speed competition. He left no doubt in the end that he was one of the top Long Snappers in the country.

Raymond snaps with great power and can get the ball back to the punter in under .7 very consistently. I like his size and he is moving well on his feet. The more he snaps the ball with absolute full power and confidence, the better he does. TONS of upside on this Long Snapper from Florida.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter was solid all day long in GA. Very thick and strong Long Snapper with great power and very quick hands. Ball really jumps out of the gate and gets back to the punter in a jiffy. Continuing to work on his athleticism will just continue to move him up the ladder.

Quinn Stephenson is a solid Long Snapper with a good frame and a smooth snap. Ball is like butter coming back to the punter. Being quicker with his get off will push him up the rankings.

Matthew Newsome was impressive in GA. He is a big Long Snapper with good power and a nice, accurate snap. Good potential and I like his attitude. Keep a very close eye on him

Chris Clore continues to impress me with his attitude, dedication to his size and the smoothness of his ball. Driving his elbows and snapping with confidence will be huge as move towards XXIX.

Tommy Zozuz did well for his first Rubio Long Snapping camp. Upper body is very solid and he can get the ball back in the high .7s. Love to see him focus on not rocking to start the process and getting his lower half fully involved to gain more speed.

Matthew Smith is coming along nicely and will dominate once he gets his butt down a bit more and allows his eyes to rip all the way through to the punter.

NOTABLES: Javier King, Dillon Manning, Ben Shirley

Clay James

Clay James

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Clay James had a great day in GA. Body is thick, strong and he has great form. Really starting to lock in and get laser focused. Confidence is coming along nicely and he can catch a groove. Snapping with full power at all times is the key for James. Excellent attitude and always improving.

Cade Long was only able to participate in half the camp but still was able to show his full dominance. Ball is tight and really rips back to the punter. Continuing to put on some size and make sure he is snapping with confidence will be huge as we head into TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE.

Jarret Key was impressive in GA. Body is strong and he is smooth. Times are in the high .7s and I want them in the low .7s by XXIX. Love to see him snap KNOWING he is one of the best rather than hoping he is. Kid has very good upside and attitude.

Bryce Chason is absolutely dripping with potential. The better he handles pressure, the higher he will go. Keep a VERY close eye on this Long Snapper from GA.

Parker Lefton looked very good with his snapping (when he is snapping with full power) and his body is coming along nicely. Love his attitude.

NOTABLES: Zac Castano, Camren Wood

Quentin Skinner

Quentin Skinner

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Quentin Skinner was in attendance for half the camp but was dominant enough to show he was the top 2019 Long Snapper in attendance. Built like a brick house and can snap in the .6s when he is fully following through. Very strong Long Snapper with great form. Excited to see the future of this Long Snapper. Works hard.

Thomas Johnstone has excellent upside and definitely headed in the right direction. Built very long and has a frame that will hold another 30 lbs in the next two years. Ball is smooth and he has great form. Keep a very close eye on this kid.

Brendan Beattie was throwing heat all day in GA. Form is good and he has strong hands. Needs to really focus on locking down his spiral or the ball will be very hard to catch for the punter.

NOTABLES: Luke Payne

Zane McCracken

Zane McCracken

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Zane McCracken was easily the best 2020 Long Snapper in attendance. Zane is a long time Rubio Long Snapper and you can easily tell. Form is darn near flawless and he can already throw the ball in the .8s, which is very impressive for his age. The bigger he gets over the next four years, the better he will be. Kid is VERY good for his age or for someone a couple years older.

Eli Pyrz showed me some good upside. Love his size and how well he listens. Watch this kid over the next couple of years.

Long Snappers came out from FL, MI, IL, AL, WI, TN, NC, KY, IN, MS & GA to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Quentin Skinner (GA, ’19)! Skinner (or Mad Dog as he is known) was very powerful all day with snaps in the .6s and great form. Kid is way beyond his years and the first freshman ever to win a Rubio Long Snapping camp. He is beyond great and actually ready for college right now.
