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 GA Fall Camp

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on December 3rd, 2017 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following GA, Rubio Long Snapping will head to AZ on 12/10, OH on 12/17 and then the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 1-15, 2018.

Camp Champion Oscar Shadley

The overall champion of the camp was Oscar Shadley (FL, ‘18). The current #1 Long Snapper in the country and Virginia Tech commit has had quite the week. Friday, he received his Army All-American jersey and on Sunday, he dominated the GA Camp. He is thick, strong, moves well on his feet and is smooth with his snapping motion. Ball jumps out of the gate well and can easily be under. 75. Handles pressure very well and is beyond accurate.

Long Snappers from GA, TN, LA, AL, MA, SC, FL TX, MS, IL, NJ, KY & KS all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the GA Camp…
The finals, which could be the most talented group of Long Snappers I have seen in a finals, were Drew Little (59.72), Oscar Shadley (54.79), Quentin Skinner (50.00), Jacob Zuhr (46.58), Doug McLaughlin (41.56) and JC Vega (40.91)

You can see the full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley had a great day in GA. Looks ready for college right now, let alone in one year. He has zero wasted movement with his snapping motion. Very smooth Long Snapper that can continue on for as long as he wants

Cade Long looked exceptional in GA. He is thickening up well and snaps one of the smoothest balls in the country. It is a joy to watch him snap a 15 yard snap as each one is exactly the same. Smart Long Snapper.

Cade Long

Evan Dvorchik came up from FL and left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class. His ball has picked up some good speed and he is always improving. Love his attitude and the more athletic Evan becomes, the more dominant he will be.

John Raines can snap some severe heat and has some of the quickest hands in the country. His hands are so quick it can be hard to time him. Body is looking solid and he continues to be on his way to greatness.

Evan Dvorchik

Payton Dunagan looked very sharp with punt snap times consistently in the .7s. Flexibility is off the charts and he continues to improve. Best I have seen Payton look!

Trey Corley was solid in GA. Body is great and he can easily pass an eyeball test. When Trey is on, he is very on and can easily snap at the next level. The more Trey can drive his upper body through, the more dominant he becomes.
Sam DeLuke is big, solid and has a great attitude. Powerful Long Snapper that can easily get the ball sub .75 when he is on. Great upside.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Quentin Skinner

Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner was an absolute machine in GA. He is thick, powerful and very strong. Zero wasted movement with his snapping motion. Easily can get punt snaps well under .75. Mad Dog is the best Long Snapper in the country and with his consistency, I don’t see that changing soon.

Drew Little was exceptional in GA. I have seen him many times and this was easily the most dominant I have seen Drew. Body is solid and he has a fluid snapping motion that allows the ball to just appear in the punter’s hands. Drew is never stagnant and always improving. NC State got a good one.

Drew Little

JC Vega was snapping absolute fire all day long and was the overall speed champion with times in the low .6s! The ball was actually picking up speed along the way and was so fast, you could hear it humming. Body is muscular and the kid is a pure athlete.

Christian Johnstone was solid in GA. Body is good and he can pass an eyeball test quickly. Consistent Long Snapper with great upside. The more he drives his upper body through, the more college ready he becomes.
Griffin Kaye had a great day in GA. Athletic Long Snapper that can San the ball with some good heat on the ball. Fluid snapping motion and speeds sub .75. Very excited to see him at VEGAS XXXI.
William Wagner had a great day in GA. Body is thick and he has lost some weight. Body is looking good and he has improved his snapping. Best I have seen Wagner look and he seems poised to grab a TOP 12 spot at VEGAS XXXI.

Speed Champion JC Vega

Carson Knight was snapping some good heat and left no doubt he could be one of the top overall Long Snappers in his class. Love how he snaps with so much power and passion

Zach Lassiter is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and is easily a factor on the punt coverage team. Locking down his spiral will be key in moving forward. Definitely could be a TOP 12er.
Doug McLaughlin made it to the finals again and proved he is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. Very nice frame and he can pass an eyeball test quickly.
Mason Napper is thick, strong and powerful with a smooth snapping motion. The lower he gets his butt and the more he snaps with full power, the more dominant Napper becomes.
Cody Olszewski was smooth, accurate and consistent. Thick bodied.
Luke Payne continues to be one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in his class. Every single snap for Payne is the exact same. Kid is like a machine. Strength is going to be huge for Payne as we continue to advance.
Nathan Tokar was smooth and accurate with good form and a thick, strong body. Driving his massive chest through will help his overall accuracy and speed.
Mark Fuchs is athletic, built well and has quick hands. Getting his legs to catch up to his hands will be key in getting his snaps ready for college level speeds. Great attitude and he works hard.
Notables: Jack Harrison, Ford Hayes, Nik Heino, Avery Kingston, Justin Wright, Graham Finklea

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Jacob Zuhr

Jacob Zuhr was a machine all day in GA. He left absolutely no doubt he is the top sophomore Long Snapper in the country with a great attitude, tremendous handling of pressure and speeds that are ready for college right now. It is almost shocking to see just how good he is. Zuhr is flat out great and doesn’t seem to be letting up.

Zane McCracken is coming off an injury and looks to be headed right back to greatness. He has grown up and his body is looking solid. Driving his head through ad leaning back will be huge for McCracken.
Jake Foggia continue to impress me with his great form and how he is starting to handle pressure. Ball is getting faster and I like his attitude. Jake is always improving.

Zane McCracken

Jackson Worthen had a great day in GA. Form is excellent and he can be consistent with speeds sub .80 and even dip into the .6s! Locking down his accuracy and improving his athleticism will push him way up the rankings.

Blake Hooker came all the way from Texas and showed just how good he is within his class. Form is good and he has quick hands that will get his ball sub .80. Locking down his spiral will be a major key at VEGAS XXXI.
John Bergeron has great form and solid upside. Needs to make sure he is not aiming too far downfield when he is snapping the ball and that he snaps with great confidence at all times. Great attitude.
Miller Jones was smooth, accurate and can be one of the best Long Snappers in his class.
Will Albright has all of the tools to be a great one. True athlete that moves well on his feet and can pass an eyeball test quickly.
Notables: Will Benton, Colby Cox, William Long, Grant Reid, Jake Sayer, William Stewart, Brody Butler

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Zach Taylor

Zach Taylor did really well in GA. His form is well beyond his years and he can even dip into the .7s when he is snapping with some great power on his punt snaps. Strength and confidence are going to be keys moving forward. Keep a close eye on Zach.

Kneeland Hibbett is smooth, accurate and snaps consistently in the mid to low .8s which is very good for his age. Really like Kneeland’s overall attitude.

Kneeland Hibbett

Holden Casperson showed me some good tings in GA. Solid accuracy and consistency make Holden one to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.

Josh Mullinix did well in GA. Consistency is good in the mid to high .8s. Need to see his spiral be locked down and he will dominate.
Jonathan Washburn might have been the most consistent freshman Long Snapper at the camp in GA. Each and every snap looks the same and I love it. Keep an eye on him at VEGAS XXXI.

Rubio Long Snapper Quentin Skinner Gets Offer AT 13 years old!

Skinner, QuentinYup, you read that correctly….Rubio Long Snapper Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner got his first full ride scholarship AT 13 YEARS OLD! Mad Dog (once you meet him, you will really understand the nickname) confirmed with me this morning. He is going into the 8th grade and he has picked up a full scholarship offer to Southern University in LA!

Mad Dog started attending Rubio Long Snapping Camps when he was in the 4th grade and has been a steady returner ever since. He averages .77 for a 15 yard snap, can bench press 280 lbs and squats 315 for a set of ten. His form is exceptional and he already passes the eye-ball test very quickly.

He is the real deal in every aspect and looks to destroy all Rubio Long Snapping records (Christian Yount of the Cleveland Browns, at one point, was the earliest to get offered when Boston College offered him his junior year. That record was broken by Blake Ferguson who was offered by LSU at the end of his sophomore year). Good luck breaking Mad Dogs record.

Here is some video of Mad Dog snapping at the FBU TOP GUN Camp this past weekend where he was selected to play in the Eastbay All- Star Game!

FYI: If you are keeping track, Coach Marty Biagi offered two Rubio Long Snappers (David Michael Carrell and Quentin Skinner) on the same day! The guy is obviously well ahead of his time.
