Long Snappers from AZ, CA, CT, DE, FL, GA, MA, NC, NJ, NY, SC, TX, VA & WV all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The champion of the camp was Joe Shimko! Shimko was the overall and speed champion. He has become as dominant a Long Snapper that has gone through Rubio Long Snapping in quite some time. He has now won six camp in the last year and a half. He recently committed to NC State on full scholarship and they got a great one. He snaps as hard as anyone in his class, moves extremely well and handles pressure as well as anyone in the country. He is an absolute machine that gets better with each and every camp. Flat out stud.

The finals round matchups were Rhys Suter (53.73), Joe Shimko (42.86), Carson Knight (42.67), Drew Little (39.13), Ben Wheless (38.36) and Cody White (37.50). You can see the full finals video below….

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.

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.

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.
