Recap of the NC Summer Camp (7/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on July 9th, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Speed Champion, Oscar Shadley and Overall Champion, Drew Little

Long Snappers from NC, TX, MS, VA, CA, SC, NJ, WV, OH, FL & DE all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

For the overall RSI Scores from the NC Camp, please go HERE

The overall champion of the camp was Drew Little (NC, ’19). Drew was on fire all day long in NC and left no doubt he is 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. His ball is extremely fast and his accuracy is college level right now. He could snap in college tonight, let alone in two years. NC State offering him was great move in my opinion.

The finals were between Oscar Shadley (75.00), Drew Little (66.18), Dillon Hayes (61.64), Sam DeLuke (58.33), Kameron Hawkins (56.76) and Karsten Battles (52.77). The full finals video can be seen below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley left absolutely no doubt he is the best Long Snapper in the country. His ball rarely gets above .72, his accuracy is incredible and he has ice going through his veins. Athletically, he will dominate on the field. I simply can’t say enough good things about him.

Karsten Battles did extremely well in NC. He has great size, is very solid with his frame and he can move on his feet. One of the most accurate Long Snappers in the country. Ball is quick and very powerful back to the punter. When he gets his eyes all the way through, he never misses.

Brock Assel was very solid in NC. Body is looking very good and he is snapping with a lot of confidence. He hovered in the low .7s to high .6s all day long and is definitely looking ready for the next level.

Sam DeLuke made it to the finals round and could have easily won it if he just had bit more gas in the tank. In one of his matches, he went through twelve rounds of snaps and that wore him down a bit. Body is thick and strong. Ball has very good power on it.

Dillon Hayes was looking very accurate and consistent all day. Body is thickening up well and his ball jumps out of the gate quickly. Locking down his spiral will be the key to moving up the rankings.

Corbin Robertson is a large Long Snapper with good form and a solid attitude. The more athletic he gets, the better he will be in the long run.

Collin Springer showed good promise in NC. I really like his attitude and drive. Showed good hips and he can move pretty well on his feet.

Marshall Eury had a great day in NC and left no doubt he is improving with his snapping. Tremendous attitude and he is built strong.

Trey Gable showed great athleticism and has an excellent attitude. His snapping is coming along very nicely.

Notables: Nathan Allen, Jon Eric Kirkland, Ken King, Keelan Grainger, Brett Duffey

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Little left no doubt he is, easily, one of the best 2019 Long Snappers in the country. Ball is a rocket and his form is perfect. He creates an incredible amount of power on his ball as it roars back to the punter. Great attitude on this hardworking Long Snapper.

Kevin Thompson was impressive in NC was great snap speeds that hovered under .80 all day long. Built strong and has good power in his body.

Sam Katz was solid all day in NC. Moved well on his feet and can snap under. 75 when he is on. Good upside and I like his attitude.

Brandon Hurst is dripping with potential. Athletic frame and he moves very well on his feet. Focusing on form will help him greatly over the next couple of years and beyond.

Jacob Gibbons is starting to really shine and snap with some power. The more confidence he has, the better he will be.

Notables: Milton Johnston, Christian Mitchell

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Kameron Hawkins came all the way out from CA and was on a mission. He was snapping with great power and can snap a college level ball right now….let alone in 3 years. Improving his athleticism will move him closer to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

Jake Foggia was very accurate and consistent all day in NC. Form is coming along nicely and I am impressed with his attitude.

Will Mitchell is dripping with potential. He looked solid in NC and he has a great attitude. Keep a very close eye on Will over the next couple of years.

Mason Williams is a strong Long Snapper with good form. His ball is quick and he can already get it under. 80 at times. Lots of upside on Mason.

Notables: Cody White, Logan Watson, Michael Bowles

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Alex McClaughlin had a great day in NC and really impressed me with his overall snap speeds. He had no problem hitting in the low .8s!

The Ortiz Brothers

Antonio Ortiz was a newcomer that left no doubt he could, easily, be one of the top Long Snappers in the country. Made it all the way to the finals on his first camp and might have the most potential of anyone in the country besides his bother (see below).

Marco Ortiz was one of the most dominant newcomers I have come across in about ten years. The potential on Marco and Antonio is so off the charts, it is unbelievable. They are big, the can run and they are very smooth. The sky is the limit for these two.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall, who recently committed to Louisville on full scholarship, was tremendous from the first to last snap of the day. He is extremely smooth and snapping with an incredible amount of confidence. Lousiville got a good one in Mitch.

Austin Reeves looked VERY good in NC. Body is solid and so is his attitude. Reeves was snapping like he knows he is a D1 Long Snapper and I love that. Ball is accurate and clean. Great kid.

Shiloh Mast came down from Indiana and was very impressive. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper that uses his body really well. Incredible personality that will be a hit on the field and in the locker room. The recent Indiana State commit has a great day.

Ryan Culbertson looked very smooth and showed great consistency all day. Moved well on his feet and showed excellent potential. Snapped with confidence and uses his body well.

Matthew Newsome was excellent in NC. Ball is very quick and his upside is off the charts. Should dominate VEGAS XXIX.

Tyler Keaton was one of the most consistent Long Snappers in attendance. Form is very good and I love his attitude. As he continues to put on more size, the speed of his ball will definitely increase.

Ryan Watkins has great form and did very well even though he is a bit nicked up. Incredible drive and attitude.

George Chestnut has improved a ton since the last time I saw him in TX. Body is maturing well and he has good athleticism for his size. Snapping with confidence will be key as he has great form and I want him to trust it. Lots of upside on this big, strong Long Snapper.

Nick Chiaravalloti has some very quick hand and moves well on his feet. Love to see him lean back a bit more to get his ball down a tad more as it will really increase his accuracy. VERY good upside on Nick.

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Maddie Golden

Maddie Golden

Maddie Golden was outstanding in NC. His snap speeds are well into the college level right now and the ball jumps out of the gate. Hands are quick and he has great form. He moves well on his feet and he does well under pressure. Like to see a bit more size on him but he is already one heck of a Long Snapper and should be focused on making The TOP 12 Camp at VEGAS XXIX.

Payton Dunagan looked VERY sharp out in NC. He has good size and moved well on his feet. Ball can be really quick and precise. If he can improve his accuracy and consistency by VEGAS XXIX, he will punch his ticket to The TOP 12 Camp.

Jack Hadley came down from NJ and left no doubt he has the ability to be one of the top Long Snappers in the country. Body is maturing really well and I like the way he moves his feet for a bigger man. Overall consistency of speed is what I will be focused on at VEGAS XXIX.

Noah Turner is a thick, strong Long Snapper with good power. Ball is quick and has good accuracy. Powerful Long Snapper that needs to make sure he doesn’t get too stiff. If he stays loose, he could take the top spot in his class at VEGAS XXIX.

Kent Vines is a big man with a great snap. Really enjoy watching him throughout the day. TONS of upside.

James Rosenberry is a tremendously consistent Long Snapper with speeds in the mid to high .7s. Form is good and he uses his whole body really well. Definitely one to watch as he could EASILY get a TOP 12 spot by the end of the first day of VEGAS XXIX.

Brennan Milliron was very impressive in NC with his quick hands, good snaps and athleticism throughout the day. Love his attitude as he is always improving.

Max Durschlag had a great day in NC and almost ended up winning the whole thing! Handles pressure really well and is built extremely solid. Like to see him focus on trusting his body and just letting the ball fly out of his hands.

Marshall Eury has a great attitude and good upside. Consistent speed means he is definitely one to watch at VEGAS XXIX.

Jon Kirkland might have the most upside of anyone in his class. This kid fine tunes some things and he is going to find himself with colleges drooling all over him right after VEGAS XXIX.

Drew Little has great form and is growing well. Ball pops back to the punter and has good accuracy. VERY close to ending a camp with a victory and it should happen in the near future.

Liam Crowley has tons of upside and could easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Alexander Harper was impressive when he was snapping the ball AND when he was moving on his feet.

Kevin Thompson might just be one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He absolutely destroyed the agility section of the camp.

Mike Wojciechowski is extremely accurate and is growing nicely.

Notables: Brendan Beattie, Shane Wilson, Zach Lassiter

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….
