Recap of the College Camp (July 16-17, 2016)

J-A-VstrsMany of the top college Long Snappers in the country came out to the incredible IMG ACADEMY in Bradenton, FL for two days of great instruction and camaraderie. This is always one of my favorite camps due to the high level of snapping and getting to see all of the Long Snapper’s personalities.

Josh Appel

Josh Appel

The top overall Long Snapper was Josh Appel of Indiana State. Appel is a back to back champion of this camp and is looking very solid heading into his senior year and future in the NFL. He has great size, an incredibly fast snap (not uncommon to see him in snap in the .6s and EVEN high .5s for 15 yards). Keep a close eye on Appel and you will not be disappointed.

Dillon Paprota

Dillon Paprota

The Accuracy Champion of the camp was Dillon Paprota of Bucknell. Paprota is just heading to Bucknell this fall but already looks like a seasoned vet. He has excellent size and strength with an extremely powerful snap. Accuracy is obviously off the charts and he has a great demeanor. Already expecting him to win this camp next year.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Williams of South Carolina is going to be one of the top overall Long Snappers in college next year with his outstanding speed, solid accuracy and great athleticism for the Gamecocks.

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire at the college camp. This left is very smooth and his accuracy is excellent. Only going into his second season with the Florida Gators and they look to be set for some time with his great snaps.

Tanner Carew of the Oregon Ducks was excellent all camps. Athletic Long Snapper with very good power and an incredibly smooth snap. Always fun to watch Carew snap and see his personality.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2015 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2015 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping National Event: VEGAS XXV!

Approximately 300 Long Snappers came in from nearly every state in the country and even Canada to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snappers. This was what you call a true national event to see how you really compare against the best in the world. As I stated before, there is nothing like Vegas and this one definitely did not disappoint. Testimonials are coming in non-stop regarding the weekend.  With the addition of an agility and tackling station, athleticism really played a role in the rankings.

Next ranking opportunity will be at any Rubio Long Snapping spring and summer camp.

This group was simply amazing with the level of talent they brought out to the field on both days. I could make this post 20 pages long talking about each and every one of them. Here are the best of the best….

  • Blake Ferguson was like a machine. Every thing you hear about him is true, plus more. He is that good.
  • Wesley Farnsworth is, easily, the most athletic Long Snapper in the country and I would put him up against any other high school player and still have my money on Farnsworth.
  • Liam McCullough has rockets for hands and catches fire.
  • AJ Carty will put a hole in his punter if he is not paying attention. Timed him several times in the .5s!
  • Tyler Griffiths has never once looked better after a camp. Kid is always improving.
  • Michael Poujol is, by far, the best available Long Snapper in the country.
  • Grant Gluhaich was simply amazing all weekend. Fire comes off his ball it is moving so quickly. Missed winning by two inches.
  • Jordan Ober handles pressure as well anyone in the country.
  • Hayden Sak is a massive man with tons of potential and talent.
  • Travis Baugus was on fire and snapping with great confidence. Passes an eyeball test quickly.
  • Drew McCracken is a pure athlete that rips the ball back to the punter.
  • Ryan Simmons was oozing confidence and he was outstanding all weekend.

Notables: Richard Wilcox, Brendan Lowery, Matt Foley, Chase Urbach, Owen Gilbert, Peter Comaroto, Ryan Parris, Harrison Hoffman, Logan Hamilton, Zach Wood, JT Bale, Kyle Varnell, Marco Cadavieco, Christian Samarzich, Landon Giammalva, Michael Soto, Wyatt Leath and Ryan Oak.

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.

Recap Article and Video of the 12th Annual Spring Event in Las Vegas

Long Snappers came out on May 10-11 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in Las Vegas from from over half of the USA to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers.

The overall winner of the camp was Jordan Ober (NV, ’15). Ober was exceptional all weekend in Vegas. The hometown hero snapped a great, accurate ball throughout the two days. He is snapping with confidence and dips into the D1 range. Incredible accuracy and has been improving a great amount in a very short amount of time. Excellent attitude.

The 12 Long Snappers that made the finals round on Sunday due to their exceptional RSI (Rubio Standard Index – score divided by speed with bonus points for more speed) were….Jordan Ober, AJ Carty, George Madden, Grant Gluhaich, Jake Knight, Tommy Bancroft, Liam McCullough, John Aloma, Harrison Goebel, Darren Diffee, Logan Hamilton & Michael Poujol.

He is flat out ready for the next level right now. Oregon got a great one in Carew.

Top 2015 Long Snappers

  • Ryan Farr (NV) is coming off his win at the 12th Annual Rubio Long Snapping camp and is still riding the wave. He is VERY confident and smooth when he snaps a ball. He was recently offered a full ride to Oregon St. and that will not be a wasted scholarship on their part, this kid can snap!
  • AJ Carty (CA) was on fire all day in CA. He is built like a D1 Long Snapper already and snaps as fast as college snapper as well. Hands are quick and he has great form. Soon, he will flat out dominate a camp from start to finish.
  • Wesley Farnsworth (NV) has some of the quickest hands in the country and, when you combine that with solid form, just makes a flat out great Long Snapper. This kid can absolutely fly on his feet.
  • Matt Foley (CA) is a Long Snapper that just continues to plug away and never stay stagnant. Always improving with his form, speed and athleticism. Well on the way to greatness.
  • Michael Poujol (TX) has an absolutely great frame and snaps a rocket back to the punter. Once he locks down his spiral, he will be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper
  • Cody Block (AZ) is a JC Long Snapper built very strong with a nice, solid, consistent ball that is always on target. He will be ready to move on in December and will be a solid pick up for someone.
  • Ryan Simmons (CA) is quite possibly the most accurate and consistent Long Snapper in the country.
  • Grant Gluhaich (CA) is, pound for pound, has the strongest snap in the country. Watching this kid snap a ball is a pure joy.

Top 2016 Long Snappers

  • Damon Johnson (CA) was a joy to watch all day long in CA. He continues to get bigger and stronger while still maintaining his form. His ball is quick and he is definitely headed in the right direction. The more confidence he gets, the better he will be.
  • Johnny Den Bleyker (CA) might be the most athletic Long Snapper in his class. Kid moves very well on his feet and snaps a great ball.
  • John Aloma (CA) showed great promise all day. Form is nearly perfect and he snaps the ball very hard. The more athletic he gets, the higher he goes in the rankings.
  • Koby Walsh (CA) Has exceptional form and is really coming into his own. Confidence is rising and you can tell when he competes. The more athletic he gets, the higher he goes in the rankings.

Nike Spring Camp in GA – RECAP

Long Snappers came out to GA on Sunday, April 14th from AL, MS, TN, KY, CA, FL, OH, VA, TX, IL, IN and GA to get the best instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. The talent level at this camp was off the charts. Easily, the best I have seen in one location. The overall winner of the camp was Warren Wynn (FL, ’14).
