Recap of the NC Spring Camp (3/12/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on March 12th, 2017 for their spring camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this spring instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the 2nd biggest event of the year (the largest is our January Vegas Event), VEGAS 30!

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Seattle on March 19th, Texas on March 26th, Arizona and New Jersey on April 9th, April 23 in Illinois and April 30th in Georgia.

This was the second Rubio Long Snapping regional camp that featured the RSI Testing to track a Long Snappers progress throughout the year and it was an overwhelming success. You can find out more about this new format HERE and the RSI’s from this actual camp already posted HERE

Long Snappers from TN, NC, NY, PA, GA, OH, SC, FL, VA, MO, IN, MA & NJ all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

Drew Little

The overall camp champion was Drew Little (NC, ’19). Little was the first Long Snapper chosen to the TOP 12 Camp at VEGAS XXIX and he hasn’t let up one bit since that weekend. He is a very consistent Long Snapper with great form, quick hands and handles pressure extremely well. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

You can see the full finals below….

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall did really well and was snapping an extremely consistent ball. Each snap, one after the other, looked exactly the same. Accuracy is on point and Louisville got a good one in Mitch.

Austin Reeves was an absolute machine out in NC. Ball is tight, he looked confident and his form is darn near perfect. Great kid and Long Snapper.

Cooper Short had his best day as a Rubio Long Snapper. The new Presbyterian commit was on fire snapping with good speed and great power throughout the day. You can tell Cooper has been working!

Ryan Culbertson was his usual consistent and accurate self. He is like a pitching machine with each snap being the same over and over again.

Erik Lawson is a large man with great power. Ball came humming off his fingers and was one of the fastest Long Snappers in attendance.

Notables: Ben Shirley

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley left no doubt he is the best Long Snapper in the country. His ball is quick and powerful while his form has no wasted movement. Kid is a true athlete and will be an easy choice for a college to scholarship.

Jack Hadley had an incredible day and was snapping with raw power in NC. He is a large man, has good form and listens well. When he is on, he is EASILY one of the best in the country.

Maddie Golden was snapping fast pearls all day. His snaps were humming and I even caught him a couple times in the .6s. Form is excellent and he snaps well under pressure.

Noah Turner is thick, strong and snaps a good ball. Always improving and he has the size to stop a defender.

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.

Kent Vines was smooth, accurate and has very good size. Flat out solid Long Snapper. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Michael Vojvodich was very solid all day in NC. He has great size, he can move on his feet and he is consistent with his speed. Great upside on Michael.

Trey Gable had a great day in NC and was impressive with his snaps. I LOVE his attitude and the kid can move on his feet.

Max Durschlag was snapping some heat in NC and made it quite clear he could earn a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS 30.

Matt Aloni showed me some good things throughout the day. Very accurate and consistent Long Snapper.

Brock Assel is large, snaps a great ball and is consistent. Some more speed on the ball and his feet will be huge for him come VEGAS 30!

Notables: Hunter Becker, Zach Chamblee, Bailey Williams, Collin Springer, Reed Harper, Marshall Eury, Sam DeLuke,

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Christian Johnstone

Christian Johnstone did well all day long in NC. He has great size, he can move on his feet and shows solid speed on the ball. Locking down his snaps under high pressure situations will make him an EASY pick for a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS 30

Alex Harper was very consistent and accurate throughout the day. Listens well and has good upside.

Tripp Heath was snapping a powerful ball throughout the day and had some quick hands.

Notables: Graham Finklea, Garrett Karres, Luke Payne, Grayson Owens

Will Albright was very good all day in NC. Snaps a nice ball that can hit in the .8s with his quick hands.

Ethan Roberts showed solid consistency throughout the day in NC.

Stewart Jones is a 2021 Long Snapper that was impressive with his handling of pressure.

Recap of the NC Fall Camp (11/20)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to North Carolina on November 20th, 2016 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

AJ Covan

AJ Covan

Long Snappers from NY, SC, OH, PA, VA, GA, FL, TN , WB, IN, NJ & NC all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was AJ COVAN (SC, ’18)! Covan is EASILY one of the most consistent and accurate Long Snappers in the country. Once he catches his stride, there is no stopping him in a competition. He is excellent on the Target and has very little wasted movement with his snapping. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see him win the whole thing in Vegas. His victory in NC earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between AJ Covan and Maddie Golden below…

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be TX (12/4), AZ (12/11) and GA (12/18)

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.

Notables: Zach Cannon, Jason Anderson, Chad Quick, Logan Odum, Jake Goldberg, 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.

Notables: Trent Grotelueschen, Same Deluke, Griffin Hicks, Frank Hudgins, Brett Duffey, Matt Cronin, Corbin Robertson, Jack McCauley, Kenneth King, Zach Chamblee, Hunter Becker, Dominic Cesta

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Rhys Suter

Rhys Suter

Rhys Suter looked very solid in NC. Ball is consistently in the low .8s and he can dip into the high .7s when he really lets is fly. Good attitude and he has a good shot for The TOP 12 Camp 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.

Tripp Heath has good upside and I like his attitude. Ball moves well.

Mike Wojciechowski is extremely accurate and is growing nicely.

Notables: Brendan Beattie, Shane Wilson, Zach Lassiter

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….

Declan McCauley was tremendous out in NC. He could pass for a freshman in college, let alone a freshman in high school. Snap speed is very solid and he can already hit in the .7s. The upside on Declan is off the charts.

Mason Williams showed me a lot of good things in NC. Good Long Snapper with lots of upside. Consistent speeds in the .8s. Watch him at VEGAS XXIX.

Ryan Purcell has a great attitude and good form. Smooth Long Snapper that is impressive for his age.

Alexander Shuran is ONLY a 2024 Long Snapper and already has great form. Remember his name.

Top 2017 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2017 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Matt Baldeck, ID
Baldeck did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in WA on October 23, 2016. He is easily one of the most powerful Long Snappers in the country. His snaps almost punish the punter when they get to him. Not uncommon for him to be in the low .7s to high .6s. Form is very good and he is using his whole body really well. Body is thick and his frame is solid. Baldeck is always improving and his athleticism is moving forward. Plays on the top team in Idaho so he is used to handling pressure. Going to be a solid pick up for a college in the next couple of months.

Eli Jenkins, WA
Eli showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on August 31, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper and his body is definitely maturing and turning into a college frame. It is really simple with Eli…the harder he snaps, the better he does. His form is very good and he really needs to trust it by just letting the ball fly out of his hands. If he can do that, he will move way up the rankings. CONFIDENCE will be key with Eli. Good attitude and listens well. Smart Long Snapper.

Jake Gibson, OR
Gibson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class and is like a machine when he snaps the ball. Uses his body well and has great form. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be. Form is so good that he just needs to trust it and never stop. Excellent person and Long Snapper.

Zachary England, WA
Zach did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is built strong with some decent feet on him. Love to see him snap AND move with the utmost confidence. Trust in his own self will help a ton in the long run. His hands are VERY quick and he does a great job of getting the ball out of the gate. Need to see him make sure he gets his hands locked on the ball before he snaps it so the spiral is there with each snap. He is so quick that he can almost jump his own gun. Very good potential.

Dan Cantrell, ID
Cantrell is a very athletic Long Snapper that was really impressive at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVII Event on January 21-22, 2016. Kid can move down field and shows good aggression. He has good power on his snaps and his accuracy is solid. Love to see him lock down the spiral and make sure he gets his lower half fully involved to gain more speed and fluidity on the ball. TONS and TONS of upside. Could be the type of player that plays two positions in college.

Luke Miller, WA
Luke did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is long athlete that moves well on his feet. True mover down field and will be a factor on punt coverage. Love to see him narrow down his stance just a tad just to increase the overall use of his legs which will give much more speed on the ball. If he can get to average under .8 by XXIX, he will move WAY up the rankings. TONS of potential on this athletic Long Snapper.

Cody Schwindt, WA
Cody showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He is a very long athlete that moves really well on his feet. Very raw talent with big upside. Form is very good and he is close to using all of his legs at all times. Love his attitude. Need to see him put on some weight and snap with full power at all times. Consistency will be key as we head into VEGAS XXVIII and beyond.

Cody Clements, WA
Cody showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in WA on October 23, 2016. Body is very thick and he has good form and power. Love to see him snap with CONFIDENCE and really let the ball fly out of his hands. Needs to move back to 25-30 yards when snapping at home to see how strong he is. Cody is absolutely dripping with potential and can be one of the best in his class.I know it and I need him to know it. Increasing his athleticism by VEGAS XXIX will help a ton in rankings. Kid can do it.

Derek Smith, WA
Liked what I saw out of Derek at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He has a good frame and is built well. Form is solid and he is using all of his body during the snapping motion really well. Athletically, he moves quickly but I would like to see him get a little more control of his body. During the snapping motion, if he can lock down his release point and snap the ball with FULL power at all times, he will definitely increase his speed to get under .8 and knock out his accuracy. GOOD potential.

Calvin Maher, WA
Calvin showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He is built very long with a frame that can easily put on some good weight in one year before college. Starting form is very good and he does a solid job of getting all the way through with his upper body. Slow motion drills to get his lower half fully involved will help a ton in gaining speed and consistency. Not thinking so much will help as well. Good potential.

Zack Jenkins, WA
Zack did well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He has a very good follow through and has the ability to hit some snaps in the .7s….at times. Need to focus on having consistent form so all of his snaps are the same. Getting his lower half fully involved will greatly increase the speed of his ball. Excellent athletic ability. Tons of potential and I liked what I saw out of him in WA.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Kyle Gibbs, CA, Committed to the Naval Academy!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Gibbs had VERY good showings at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL in July, 2016. Body is solid and he can rip the ball back to the punter. Missed being an Army All-American by about a 1/4 of an inch at best. Moves well on his feet and is really finding his groove out on the field. The more he can dominate pressure situations and not overgrip or oversnap the ball, the better he will be. Definitely headed in the right direction when he is snapping the ball and looks to only get better over the next year as he moves towards the college level.

Noah Rodriguez-Trammell, CA, Offer from Colorado State!
Noah had a solid couple days at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and moves pretty darn well on his feet for a man of his size. Extremely smooth PATs and his punts are like a machine…same snap every single time. Love to see him make his hands just a tad quicker and have no wasted movement at the start of the snap. VERY close to being a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. He is the type of Long Snapper that can just get better and better throughout college….definitely has not hit his peak yet and he is already excellent.

Alex Michaelsen, CA, Offer from Army!
Michaelsen did very well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He shows good athleticism on his feet and has the ability to be a factor in punt coverage. Ball is smooth and when he lets it fly out of his hands, he dominates and can get in the low .7s. Confidence will be big for him moving farther up the charts. Time for Michaelsen to KNOW he is one of the best in the country instead of HOPING he is. Keep a very close eye on this Long Snapper this fall and at VEGAS XXIX in January.

Harrison Hoffman, CA
Harrison did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is a very long athlete with room to easily put on about forty pounds over the next couple of years. Coming back after a year at Air Force and he is ready to go now. Ball is smooth and he does a great job in reaching all the way back to the punter. Needs to work on getting his lower half fully involved to gain more speed on the ball. Love to see him below .79 at all times by VEGAS XXIX. Hard worker and just an all-around great kid.

Jonathan Goldstein, CA
Goldstein did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is a long athlete with a frame that can put on about forty pounds over the next couple of years with the right condition coach. His snapping motion is smooth and he really gets some good speed on the ball. His snaps will be even faster once the spiral is locked down on each and every snap. Adjusting non-dominant hand will help this process. Very good upside. Size will be a major key in moving up the rankings.

Karson Thomas, NV, Committed to Nevada!
Karson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He has an excellent frame and can pass an eyeball test right now. Definitely looks the part of a college athlete. Needs to make sure he is snapping at full power at all times. Ball can be in the low .7s and I want to see it down there with each and every snap. FULL CONFIDENCE in his form and snapping motion will be in moving up the rankings. Kid is absolutely dripping with potential. Major upside.

Jeff Hansen, CA
Hansen did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is a very smooth Long Snapper with good balance and a nice snapping motion. His hands are quick and he is very accurate. I would feel pretty darn comfortable in him playing in a college game right now. It will be interesting to see how he handles the pressure of VEGAS XXIX but I have a feeling it won’t disturb him at all. Like to see him work on his athleticism and focus on snapping with full power at all times. Hansen is very solid.

Peter Snodgrass, CA
Snodgrass did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. He is one of those Long Snappers that is is right on the cusp of greatness and once it all clicks (hint: it will be soon), he will absolutely dominate. I have seen him snap a major D1 ball at times, but I need to see it ALL of the time. Like to see him focus on just smoothing out everything and making sure every snap is the same. CONSISTENCY of dominance is the big thing. Making sure his butt is down, making sure his hands follow through the proper way, making sure his spiral is locked down. This kid is CLOSE.

Zac Grant, NV
Zac did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is large man with good power and I like his athletic ability. Big man and he moves well for his size. Love to see him narrow down his stance a bit to create more overall speed on the ball and make sure he is not running and/or moving too high so it will be easy for him to cut and break down. Ball is smooth and he has a ton of potential. Consistency is going to be the key for him moving up the charts. I am very interested to see him in the fall and at VEGAS XXIX.

Koltin Anderson, CA
I liked what I saw out of Koltin at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on July 31, 2016. Big and strong Long Snapper with a great work ethic and attitude. Coaches dream in college. Eyes and head getting through smoothly every single time will be key in him moving forward as that will really increase his overall speed and accuracy.

 

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado)
Devin Noth, CO
Noth showed me some great things at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. VERY athletic Long Snapper that will definitely be a factor heading downfield on punts. Punt returns will have to keep an eye on him at all times he is on the field. Ball is crisp and his hands are quick. Once his butt gets down just a tad more and his back becomes parallel to the ground, he will move even farther up the rankings as he will greatly increase his speed and accuracy.

Caleb Lawver, UT
I was VERY impressed with Lawver at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a smooth Long Snapper with great accuracy and consistency. Moves well on his feet. Locking down his overall accuracy by his release point will get him into the 30’s on the Target. Literally, wouldn’t surprise me to see him when VEGAS in January. The more athletic he gets, the higher he goes up the rankings. VERY good attitude.

Steven Green, CO
Steven showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper with good starting form and powerful hands. Love to see him slow it down so he can lock down the snapping motion. Built well so if he can get his lower half fully involved, he will create a lot of speed on the ball. Legs fully locked will help a ton to get him under .8 for a punt snap. Making sure he does lay down drills to ensure a very tight spiral will help with speed and catchability as well.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Jake Pagel, TX
Pagel showed me some good things at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL in July, 2016. He is a thick Long Snapper with very quick hands that can really get the ball moving back to the punter. When he is on, he is REALLY on and has a ball that is as quick as any Long Snapper in the country. Like to see him focus on making sure he is always leaning back to maintain more accuracy and that he really locks down snapping under pressure. The kid has great upside and could be one of the greats in college with simple fixes. Solid attitude that will do well in college.

Justin Hathoot, NM
Hathoot looked VERY solid at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA on August 31, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper that is a true factor in punt coverage. Body frame is good and he has room to put on some good size over the next couple of years. Needs to make sure he locks down his release point to really focus on accuracy and making sure he is hitting the target. Ball is coming out hot and he has good speed. Locking down the location will move him up to a 4.5 and even 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Keep a very close eye on Hathoot at VEGAS XXIX.

Caleb Cantrell, TX
Nice jump in the rankings and very well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. Body is athletic and his form is solid. Does a really nice job of using his whole body well and getting his speed locked down. Not uncommon to see him snapping in the low .7s. VERY quick hands and the ball continues to rise to the punter. Putting on some size and making sure he is getting all the way up a bit quicker will help out a ton. KEEP A VERY CLOSE EYE ON THIS KID AT VEGAS XXIX!

Jarrod Jacobson, TX
Jarrod showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He has a good frame and an excellent attitude. Tell him to do something and just consider it done. Hands are quick and he is always improving. Snapping with full confidence and making sure his head gets all the way through with each snap will help his speed get into the low .7s and even high .6s. Form is good and he needs to trust it. Good upside. Coaches will love him in college.

Chris Clore, TX
Clore showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He continues to work on his body and he is looking more and more like a D1 athlete all of the time. Incredible transformation of his overall frame and I am very proud of him for it. Times are right in the .7s over the summer which is a very good improvement since VEGAS XXVIII in May. Kid has been working hard and smart, and it is obvious. Love to see him focus on making sure he is really whipping his elbows through so he creates more whip on the ball and is not so rigid. Improving athleticism will be another key in moving up. Great attitude.

Noah Caldwell, TX, Offer from South Eastern OK. State!
Noah showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper with a frame that can grow and dominate in the next couple of years. Ball is smooth and he has some very quick hands. Needs to make sure he gets fully set before he snaps in two ways: with his left hand on the ball (this will help with any spiral issues) and also with his butt getting all the way down (this will help with accuracy and speed). Love his working man’s attitude and I know he can do well in college.

Steven Taylor, TX
Steven showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is getting bigger and stronger every time I see him and you can definitely tell he has been working on the side with a Rubio instructor. Form is coming along nicely. Love to see him focus on a couple things: not dragging the ball at all, making sure his balance is back and not rocking into the snapping motion. At times, he basically slowly moves into the initial snap motion and that will alert the timer, and, more importantly, the defender when he is about to snap. Needs to make sure that once he is ready, he EXPLODES! out of the gate so he is quicker. Always improving.

Caleb McKee, TX
Caleb showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper with VERY quick hands. The ball really jumps out of the gate well. So quick that I would actually like to him to make sure he gets fully set before starting the snapping motion so he gets a good grip (and spiral) on the ball. If he can get his lower half fully involved, he will absolutely crush the competition. I really think getting fully set and following through with his fingers will increase his overall accuracy. Excellent potential. Watch him this summer in TX and at VEGAS XXIX.

Ethan Zenzen, TX
Massive jump in the rankings and well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in TX. Good frame and moves well on his feet. Athletic. Form has improved immensely and he is getting some decent pop on the ball. Needs to make sure he locks down his release to gain more accuracy. LOTS of upside. Great attitude.

George Rios, TX
George did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on January 21-22, 2016. He moves well on his feet and gets his upper body through really well when he is snapping punts. Practically hands the ball to the punter. Love to see him not think so much prior to the snap and focus on getting his lower half fully involved to gain more speed on the ball. Upper body is solid and when his lower body catches up, he will dominate.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Trevor Dhabalt, IA
Dhabalt did well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a strong and stocky Long Snapper who can, at times, easily have the fastest snap in the country. He gets set, looks at you and then BOOM! the ball is in the punter’s hands. It is almost intimidating at first. Hands are so quick, it can be hard to time him. Once he gets his form fully settled in and has the same snapping motion over and over, he will lock down his accuracy/consistency and then he is unstoppable. Moves really well on his feet and is a factor on punt coverage. Quiet and solid.

Kobe Paez, NE, Committed to Chadron State!
Kobe showed me some good things at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a very athletic Long Snapper that can really fly down the field on punt coverage. Form is good and he has the ability to get some good speed on the ball. Like to see him focus on really driving his elbows more to create more whip and speed on the ball. Also, making sure he has the same form and snapping motion on every single snap will allow him to be much more consistent with his snaps. Very close to getting “it”.

Ryan Langan, NE
Ryan did VERY well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Took him a while to catch his groove in IL, but, once he did, WATCH OUT! Easily could have won the whole camp and would’ve looked great doing it. Form is solid and he is snapping a nice, hard ball back to the punter. Ryan has INCREDIBLE upside and reminds me a lot of Rubio Long Snapper Wesley Farnsworth of Nevada. True athlete that can snap. CONSISTENCY will be the key to him getting to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. KEEP A VERY CLOSE EYE ON HIM AT VEGAS XXIX.

Kyle Eckelberg, WI
Kyle showed me some great things at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Frame is solid and he uses his whole body really well. His hands are quick and he gets the ball out of the gate with no hesitation. Love to see him focus on getting his eyes through to improve his speed a bit and make sure he gets back up quicker after the snap. Blocking and being able to stop a D1 player getting through the A gap will be huge for him. GREAT upside and he should be able to show it at VEGAS XXIX.

David Bryan, WI
David did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in CA. He has a good frame and shows good athleticism. Very strong upper body really gets the ball back to the punter quickly. Needs to focus on making sure he gets his head AND eyes through for more accuracy and consistency. Right on the cusp of greatness and I am interested to see his progress at VEGAS XXVII.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Drew Wise, KS
Wise was on fire at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Body is VERY solid and he can pass an eyeball test from a college coach quickly. Wise’s snaps can be VERY quick and really punish the punter. He definitely goes with the notion of snapping the ball THROUGH the punter. Like to see him focus on making sure he is not overthinking the process and keeps his hands steady on the ball. I would be absolutely shocked if he isn’t a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper BEFORE VEGAS XXIX. He is good and knocking on greatnesses door.

Benji Gormley, MO
Benji looked excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He has grown a good deal and is snapping with a ton of confidence. Loved watching him snap in IL with a swagger. It was almost like he was shocked he didn’t win the whole thing. The bigger he gets, the better he will be in the long run. Kid is looking good and could/should dominate XXIX in January! WATCH THIS LONG SNAPPER.

Reid Williams, MO
Reid did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He has a thick frame and strong hands. Form is good and he showed me some good speed in IL. Love to see him not tap the ball prior to the snap as he is creating a patter which we don’t want or need. Also, making sure he is snapping with full power at all times will allow him to NEVER have a snap in the .8s again. I am really looking forward to watching him this fall and at VEGAS XXIX! Kid is dripping with potential and can be one of the greats.

Chaz Satnan, MO
Chaz did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Kid is a monster and his Long Snapping form gets better by the second. When he gets his butt down and his back parallel to the ground, he can absolutely throw heat and almost punish the punter. Hovers right in the mid to low .7s and can dip into the .6s when he trust his good form and lets the ball. Controlling that speed with the proper and consistent release point will help with accuracy. Blocks well and hard to get by him. Big upside for a pro style team. Chaz has improved EVERY SINGLE TIME I have seen him in action and that says a lot about his work ethic.

Reeves Blankenship, LA
Impressed with what I saw out of Reeves at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He has a great frame and is built thick. Definitely headed to a college body now let alone in a year from now. Ball is pretty darn smooth and accurate. Like to see him extend the ball out a bit more to gain more speed and to trust himself. Confidence will be key. Very good upside on Blankenship. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and at VEGAS XXIX.

Jordan Silver, MO
SMOOOOOOOTH is how I would describe Silver at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in TX. Frame is very good and athletic. Moves well on his feet. Passes an eyeball test and will crush it when he puts on just a tad more weight. GREAT attitude. Love to see him lower his butt a bit more in order to get more of his legs involved. This will greatly increase the speed of his ball and get him into the .7s and possibly .6s sooner than he thinks. MASSIVE UPSIDE on Silver.

Trey Icamina, LA
Icamina did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a strong Long Snapper with good, quick hands that get the ball out of the gate very quickly. Like to see him rise up a bit to use more of his large frame. Also, slow motion drills to get his lower half fully involved will help a ton to ensure he gets more speed on the ball and get up under .8 by the fall camp in TX and definitely by VEGAS XXIX. Kid has a ton of potential.

Justyce Hankins, OK
Justyce did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He has a very good frame and tons of potential. He can definitely pass an eyeball test quickly. Love to see him focus on using his whole body to gain more speed on the ball. Slow motion drills will be key to make his snapping motion smoother and lock down his consistency. Kid is dripping with potential. Spiral will be another key I will be focused on over the next couple of months as we head into VEGAS XXIX.

Dominic Brocato, LA
Dominic did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good starting form. Love to see him focus on making sure he is not bouncing prior to the snap and that he gets fully settled in before he starts his snapping motion. That will really help his overall speed and get him into the .7s by VEGAS XXIX in January. I like his attitude and he works hard.

JP Morris, OK, Committed to Mount St. Mary’s!
JP is absolutely oozing with potential after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX on February 28th, 2016. Kid can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile away and looks like a D1 tight end right now. Built really well. Needs to flatten his back at the start and then make sure he gets his lower half fully involved to gain more speed. Need to see him hitting in the .7s, with a tight spiral, by VEGAS XXVIII in May. The upside on JP is off the charts. Once it clicks, he destroys others in his class.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Joe Calcagno, IL, Committed to Penn State!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Calcagno is a monster physically and did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Built thick and he has great power throughout his body. Ball is crisp and he is snapping with very good speed right now. He has the ability to block and get his head up quickly after a great snap. In college, he will most likely drop a tad bit of weight to get his body downfield a little quicker, but right now, since he also plays line in the CCL, he has to maintain his size. Kid works hard and has very good upside. Love his attitude. The harder he snaps, the better he is. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit to see him leave VEGAS XXIX with a win and a scholarship.

Kasey Kelleher, OH, Offers to Bowling Green and Toledo!
Kelleher did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Strong Long Snapper that can move well on his feet. Ball is powerful and really explodes back to the punter. He can catch a groove and really dominate a camp and all the Long Snappers around him. Locking down his accuracy and consistency will be key as his speed is already at the D1 level. Love his attitude and he has very good upside.

Nate Durham, IL
Nate was a stud at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016 and ended up winning the whole camp! Ball is powerful and he is snapping consistently in the .7s. Body is solid and he can pass an eyeball test.

Matt Hembrough, IL
Hembrough did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. His snaps are crisp, powerful and have solid speed. He is right in the .7s and will be in the .6s by VEGAS XXIX with some more size. Love to see him be at 210 in January. Kid is an athlete and has great upside. Heck of an attitude and he works hard. Getting up when blocking is going to be a big key in getting to that 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper mark.

Kyle O’Connor, OH, Offer from Army!
Kyle did well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in PA on October 9th, 2016. He has arguably the quickest hands in the country. It is seriously hard to time Kyle at 15 yards. Love to see him adjust his tempo a bit so he doesn’t always just the snap ball right when he gets his hands set. If he can change it up a bit, he will throw off the defensive players a bit and not allow them to predict his snap. Also, his form is EXCELLENT and he needs to TRUST it by just letting the ball fly out of his hands. FULL POWER will push him into the low .6s and completely ready for college. Quiet and dominant is how I expect him to be at VEGAS XXIX.

Zach Appio, IL
Appio looked excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. CONFIDENCE is through the roof and he was snapping some absolute heat all day. He definitely had some of the fastest times throughout the day with snaps consistently in the .7s and even some dipping into the high .6s. Love to see him focus on putting on some size and making sure he gets back up quicker for blocking purposes. Ball is really crisp and pops to the punter. An extra ten to 15 lbs will do wonders for him and stopping a defender coming through the A gap. Easily could be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by the end of Sunday night at VEGAS XXIX.

Marshall Coluzzi, IL
Coluzzi was solid at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He has a good frame and can move well on his feet going forward or to the side. Form is good and he is a very smooth Long Snapper. Type of kid that just doesn’t miss and his consistency is off the charts. Every single snap looks exactly the same. Over and over. Almost can put you to sleep and that is a good thing for a punter. You always know exactly what you are going to get with Coluzzi. Love to see him to continue to focus on really driving his legs and getting all of his thick body back to the punter to increase overall speed while locking down the spiral and not overthinking. Less thinking will definitely help Coluzzi in the long run. Smooth Long Snapper that will make his punter happy.

Dylan Castro, IL
Dylan looked very solid at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in IL on September 25, 2016. Body is thick, he has good power and he is looking more and more athletic every single camp. Ball is extremely smooth and he might be one of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country. He is like a machine with his accuracy. When he really explodes out of the gate, he can EASILY snap in the .7s. Love to see him continue to work on his athleticism and make sure he is getting his head up a bit quicker after the snap to stop a rusher. Quiet assassin out on the field. Wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him break the high score on the Target at VEGAS XXIX.

Cole Stewart, IL
Stewart did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. Body is strong and his ball is catchable. Accurate Long Snapper with very good consistency. Mark my words, Stewart can easily be one of the best Long Snappers in his class IF he can speed up the starting motion of his hands. Ball tends to be a little slow out of the gate and that gives the defensive man a moment to jump him. If he can speed up his hands, he moves WAY up the rankings. I predict he dominates VEGAS XXIX.

John Davis, IL
Davis did well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He has an athletic build and snaps a very smooth ball. Form is good and he shows good accuracy. Like to see him snap with more confidence and just let the ball go. Trusting in himself and his form will push him well under the .78 mark of snapping to the punter. Confidence will be key in everything he does: snapping, blocking and running. Getting closer and I like his attitude. He has the ability to handle pressure well.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Kevin Crabtree, MA, Committed to Villanova!
Crabtree did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a large Long Snapper with good upper body power. Smooth and quick snap that is right on with his accuracy. Love to see him get his large lower half down a bit more to ensure more overall speed on the ball. Tends to keep his butt up and rush the process just a tad. Settling and really exploding will get him in the .6s and be more accurate as well. Just about to hit his stride. I would bet by XXIX, he dominates the whole thing.

Brian Keating, CT
Brian had a solid performance at the Spring Rubio Long Snapping Camp in New Jersey. Was very accurate all day, and had decent velocity on the ball. Needs to engage his legs more and try to reduce a slight hitch in his snap to make everything quicker. Know he will put the effort in and work to be great.

Carson Tebbetts, CT
Carson showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He has a good frame and moves with power through agility parts of Vegas. Like to see him gain a bit more control on his feet. Definitely comes in hot but can be a tad out of balance. Snaps are very smooth, accurate and consistent. He is like a machine when snapping. TRUSTING in his good form will help a lot with speed and getting him under .80 on a regular basis. He can do this and I know it….I need him to know it.

Harry Blair, NY
Harry showed a ton of potential at the Rubio Long Snapping camp in New Jersey. He is extremely long and was snapping very accurately all day. Think if he shifts his weight back slightly, and really explodes back to the punter rather than falling forward after he snaps he can put more heat on the ball. Combine that with the consistency he showed with his accuracy and he can be very good.

Ryan McNeil, MA
McNeil had waves of brilliance at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVII Event on January 21-22, 2016. He has a good frame and that ability to put on some good weight over the next year. Ball is smooth, catchable and he has very good accuracy. Hands are quick and they reach back well (why the good accuracy). LOVE to see him do slow motion drills to focus on using all of his legs. If he can get his long legs involved, he will put a hole in the punter and easily be in the low .7s. TONS of upside. Good attitude. At XXVIII in May, he should be focused on EVENT ELITE and nothing else.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Billy Taylor, NJ
Liked what I saw out of Billy at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Billy has a good frame and he can move well on his feet. Form is solid and he can snap a quick ball. Confidence will be key as he moves up the rankings. Love to see him not think so much and really just let the ball fly out of his hands.Trusting his form and believing in himself will help a ton. Ball can pop back to the punter when he follows all the way through. Right on the cusp of greatness.

Tristan Sokach-Minnick, PA
Tristan showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVII Event on January 21-22, 2016. First off, he can pass an eyeball test quickly. Moves well on his feet but I would like to see him focus on not running so high so he be a bit more agile. Ball has power when it comes off his hands. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him in the .6s by XXVIII in May and throughout his senior year. He was on my short list of TOP 12 members. He should be all over the EVENT ELITE if he does what I know he can. Very good attitude and lots of upside.

Ryan Schwind, VA
Ryan did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a very smooth and consistent Long Snapper with each snap looking the same. It is like a machine snapping out there. His overall form is good and he has solid accuracy. Love to see him focus on getting his eyes all the way through with each snap to ensure even more speed and accuracy. Ryan is right on the cusp of greatness. I KNOW he can be dominant and I need him to know it as well. He could/should DOMINATE the fall and VEGAS XXIX!

Ryan Cassidy, NJ
Ryan showed a ton of promise at the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in New Jersey on May 7th, 2016. Extremely athletic and long with a powerful snap. Needs to aim a little lower and let the ball climb naturally back to the punter. Small tweaks away from being dominant.

Nick Low, VA, Committed to Chicago!
Low did well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in NC. Body is thick and he has good power. Hands are VERY quick and his form is coming along really nicely. SMART Long Snapper with good zip. More he trusts his form to let the ball go and locks down his spiral, he will dominate. Great attitude.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Thomas Fletcher, FL, Committed to Alabama!
OFFER HIM YESTERDAY!!! COMPLETELY DOMINATED at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL and it wasn’t even close. His form is flawless, his hands are quick and he is getting bigger. No one is even close to him right now and he is, easily, the best Long Snapper in the country. You could put him in a competition with any other high school, and a heavy majority of college kids, and Fletcher would win. Just start the competition and walk away as the winner will be decided for you as soon as Fletcher touches the ball. I will say it again, Fletcher is THE BEST LONG SNAPPER IN THE COUNTRY AND IT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE

Mitch Hall, NC, Committed to Louisville!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Mitch did really well at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is still growing like a weed and has a frame that will hold at least another forty lbs in college. Ball is smooth, very accurate and he handles pressure like a champ. Snaps are fast and will be even quicker when he doesn’t ease into the snapping motion. Being a little quicker out of the gate will really get the ball flying out of his hands and make him pop in front of the recruiters. Memphis offered a great one in Mitch. EXCELLENT ATTITUDE.

Jacob Potter, GA
Potter did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a thick, strong Long Snapper with great power in his snap. Body is tough. Moving better on his feet and starting to be a factor heading downfield. Ball is smooth and catchable. Like to see him continue to get his butt down a bit more to get more of his massive lower half involved which will give him more speed. Also, driving his elbows will help with speed as well. Kid has come a long way and just continues to improve.

Raymond Freeman, FL, Committed to Air Force!
Freeman did extremely well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper that is a true factor on punt coverage. Ball is VERY fast and can punish the punter. Air Force definitely got a player in Freeman. His hands are like rockets and the ball will jump back to the punter. When Freeman just snaps with confidence and lets the ball fly, he is absolutely incredible. Locking down the spiral will move him even farther up. I would be shocked to not see him as a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper at XXIX in January.

Austin Reeves, NC
Reeves is hitting his stride and showed me some great things at the FBU TOP GUN camp and the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Reeves has a solid frame and moves well on his feet. Smart Long Snapper with a smooth release and great accuracy. Power and confidence will be the biggest factors I look for in making him a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by XXIX. Love his attitude and he is a workhorse.

Paul Lawless, FL
Lawless had a great early October fall camp in Florida. He is very long and athletic and snapped well all day. Some small tweaks in his stance by dropping his hips a little will help his ball from rising up. Great kid and attitude who is very close to being great. Relaxing and letting his body do all of the work. CONFIDENCE will be huge with him at VEGAS XXIX. No need to think at all for Lawless.

Matthew Smith, GA
Matthew did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is an excellent athlete that moves extremely well on his feet. Ball is crisp and powerful back to the punter. Ball can be very fast and when he lowers his back to parallel, he can get in the .6s. When he focuses on getting his butt down and just Long Snapping, he is EASILY one of the top kids in the state and even country. Massive amount of upside on Matthew. Watch him dominate at VEGAS XXIX.

Ryan Culbertson, SC
Culbertson did well at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Good, solid frame and he is a hard worker. Starting form is solid and he snaps a very smooth and catchable ball. Needs to make sure he just completely unleashes all of his power on every snap. When he is timid, he doesn’t drive his elbows and the ball will fall of the table towards the end of the snap to the punter BUT when he snaps with confidence and lets the ball fly, he is completely different and dominates. Moving in the right direction and has good upside. Great kid.

Thomas Zozus, FL
Tommy did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is sitting on a ton of potential and is definitely one to watch over the next year. I fully expect him to dominate this fall and make a major name for himself at VEGAS XXIX in January. Body is good and he can pass an eyeball test. For his size, he moves really well on his feet and is an athlete. Love to see him focus on not rolling into his snap and making sure he is VERY quick out of the gate. Kid is dripping with promise. WATCH HIM.

William Stover, NC
Stover showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He moved well on his feet during the agility section of Vegas and his hands are quick. Nice, powerful snap that gets back to the punter with good accuracy. Love to see him really focus on getting his lower half fully involved to create even more speed on the ball. Also, locking down his release point will help with his consistency. He is very close to being “there” with his snaps. Keep a very close eye on him this summer and fall. He should absolutely dominate XXIX.

Chris-Rubio-2Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the biggest and best resource for Long Snappers in the country. Offering the best instruction and most exposure in the world. Rubio Long Snapping can help you to become the best snapper you can be!

In just 12 years, Chris Rubio, President and Owner of Rubio Long Snapping, has become the #1 Long Snapping instructor in the country and the go-to man when a college coach needs a Long Snapper. Colleges from across the country rely on “Rubio’s” word day in and day out on who the best Long Snappers are in the country. Rubio Long Snapping has assisted in over 300 Long Snappers earning FULL SCHOLARSHIPS to major colleges and universities just for Long Snapping and many into the NFL as well.

The Top 10 Overall Long Snappers in the Country

Here is your list of the TOP 10 Long Snappers for the class of 2017….

1. Thomas Fletcher – Committed to Alabama on full scholarship!
OFFER HIM YESTERDAY!!! COMPLETELY DOMINATED at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL and it wasn’t even close. His form is flawless, his hands are quick and he is getting bigger. No one is even close to him right now and he is, easily, the best Long Snapper in the country. You could put him in a competition with any other high school, and a heavy majority of college kids, and Fletcher would win. Just start the competition and walk away as the winner will be decided for you as soon as Fletcher touches the ball. I will say it again, Fletcher is THE BEST LONG SNAPPER IN THE COUNTRY AND IT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE

 

2. Mitch Hall, Scholarship offers to Memphis and Louisville, preferred walk-on to Florida State!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Mitch did really well at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is still growing like a weed and has a frame that will hold at least another forty lbs in college. Ball is smooth, very accurate and he handles pressure like a champ. Snaps are fast and will be even quicker when he doesn’t ease into the snapping motion. Being a little quicker out of the gate will really get the ball flying out of his hands and make him pop in front of the recruiters. Memphis offered a great one in Mitch. EXCELLENT ATTITUDE.

 

3. Kyle Gibbs, Committed to the Naval Academy!
OFFER HIM NOW!!! Gibbs had VERY good showings at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL in July, 2016. Body is solid and he can rip the ball back to the punter. Missed being an Army All-American by about a 1/4 of an inch at best. Moves well on his feet and is really finding his groove out on the field. The more he can dominate pressure situations and not overgrip or oversnap the ball, the better he will be. Definitely headed in the right direction when he is snapping the ball and looks to only get better over the next year as he moves towards the college level.

 

4. Kasey Kelleher, Offers to Bowling Green and Toledo!
Kelleher did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Strong Long Snapper that can move well on his feet. Ball is powerful and really explodes back to the punter. He can catch a groove and really dominate a camp and all the Long Snappers around him. Locking down his accuracy and consistency will be key as his speed is already at the D1 level. Love his attitude and he has very good upside.

 

5. Devin Noth
Noth showed me some great things at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. VERY athletic Long Snapper that will definitely be a factor heading downfield on punts. Punt returns will have to keep an eye on him at all times he is on the field. Ball is crisp and his hands are quick. Once his butt gets down just a tad more and his back becomes parallel to the ground, he will move even farther up the rankings as he will greatly increase his speed and accuracy.

 

6. Noah Rodriguez-Trammell, Offer to Colorado State!
Noah had a solid couple days at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and moves pretty darn well on his feet for a man of his size. Extremely smooth PATs and his punts are like a machine…same snap every single time. Love to see him make his hands just a tad quicker and have no wasted movement at the start of the snap. VERY close to being a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. He is the type of Long Snapper that can just get better and better throughout college….definitely has not hit his peak yet and he is already excellent.

 

7. Joe Calcagno, Committed to Penn State!
Calcagno had a great couple days FBU TOP GUN Camp and at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Body is thick and he is as strong as a bull. Kid has power throughout and uses it well when he is snapping. Love to see him use all of that massive power with each and every snap. If he can snap at full speed every time AND get his eyes through with each snap, he could win XXIX…easily. Once he fully focuses on Long Snapping and doesn’t have to be 260 to play lineman, he will just improve even more. Great attitude that coaches will love. He will be a leader in the locker room and on the field. Penn St. got a good one in Calcagno.

 

8. Jacob Potter
Potter did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a thick, strong Long Snapper with great power in his snap. Body is tough. Moving better on his feet and starting to be a factor heading downfield. Ball is smooth and catchable. Like to see him continue to get his butt down a bit more to get more of his massive lower half involved which will give him more speed. Also, driving his elbows will help with speed as well. Kid has come a long way and just continues to improve.

 

9. Raymond Freeman, Committed to Air Force!
Freeman did extremely well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in GA on July 12, 2016. He is an athletic Long Snapper that is a true factor on punt coverage. Ball is VERY fast and can punish the punter. Air Force definitely got a player in Freeman. His hands are like rockets and the ball will jump back to the punter. When Freeman just snaps with confidence and lets the ball fly, he is absolutely incredible. Locking down the spiral will move him even farther up. I would be shocked to not see him as a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper at XXIX in January.

 

10. Jake Pagel
Pagel showed me some good things at the FBU TOP GUN camp and at the Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL in July, 2016. He is a thick Long Snapper with very quick hands that can really get the ball moving back to the punter. When he is on, he is REALLY on and has a ball that is as quick as any Long Snapper in the country. Like to see him focus on making sure he is always leaning back to maintain more accuracy and that he really locks down snapping under pressure. The kid has great upside and could be one of the greats in college with simple fixes. Solid attitude that will do well in college.

Recap of the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp (July 18-20, 2016)

J-A-Vstrs

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the best high school Long Snappers in the country visited the IMG Academy to train with Rubio Long Snapping and compete at the prestigious TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE camp!

Thomas Fletcher

Thomas Fletcher

This camp is obviously filled with talent as all Long Snappers are great and could be written about in this blog, but I will only mention a few that really stood out to me.

The top overall Long Snapper and champion (second time in a row!) was Thomas Fletcher! The recent Alabama commit left absolutely no doubt he is the best Long Snapper in the country and it is not even close. He handles pressure (check out the domination in the finals HERE) as well as anyone I have ever had, has absolutely zero wasted movement and has tremendous hips. The bigger and stronger he gets, the more dominate he will become in college and beyond. Fletcher is easily one of the top Long Snappers to ever go through Rubio Long Snapping.

Notable 2017 Long Snappers

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs has been improving drastically as of late and is really coming along. He was very consistent throughout the camp and had good speed on all three days. Moves well on his feet and was impressive.

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall showed excellent accuracy and consistency in FL. Body is built long and he has room to put on some good weight and size over the next couple of years. Smooth Long Snapper with great form. More explosion at the start of the snapping motion will help a bit with overall speed.

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter was very impressive over the three day span at IMG. Body is beyond strong and he is doing much better moving his feet and being more agile on them. He is starting to snap with great power and confidence which is great for him but bad for the others in his class. Potter had a great three days under a lot of pressure.

IMG_1234 copyJoe Calcagno is a thick, strong and snaps with great power. Ball can be very tight and right on target when he follows through and snaps hard. Upside is tremendous on this recent Penn St. commit. Make sure you continue to watch him this year and beyond as he can be one of the best out there.

 

 

 

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter

Notable 2018 Long Snappers

Ross Reiter was unshakeable all week in FL. He is a very thick, strong Long Snapper with a tight spiral and excellent accuracy. Ball really pops back to the punter and is catchable. One of the prettiest snaps you will see in the country. Excellent attitude.

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley is a very athletic Long Snapper with a D1 frame and he still has a year of high school left. Powerful Long Snapper that looks like he could play multiple positions in college. The sky is the limit for this Long Snapper.

Roen McCullough

Roen McCullough

Roen McCullough looks to have the most upside of the 2018 Long Snappers. When Roen is on, there is no one that is even close to him in his class. Body is large, he is strong and he can rip the ball back to the punter. Consistency of his greatness will be the key for Roen moving up the rankings and taking the top spot!

 

Belly Flop Champions!

Congratulation to Marshall Coluzzi as he took back the title for the Long Snappers in the annual belly flop contest! You can actually watch the whole contest HERE on Periscope.

Be sure to check out Rubio Long Snapping on Twitter and Facebook as many videos were created highlighting the weekend!

Recap of the FBU TOP GUN Camp (July 14-15, 2016)

CSK_RLS_FBURubio Long Snapping traveled to Rock Hill, SC on July 14-15 to run the FBU TOP GUN Camp and choose the FBU and Army All-Americans. The weather was hot and so were the Long Snappers in attendance. The Long Snappers present were many of the best in the country and the competition did not disappoint. Here are the results of the two day camp….

2017

Thomas Fletcher Army All-American

Thomas Fletcher Army All-American

As expected, the senior class was stacked with Long Snapping talent from all over the country. Previously named Army All-American Thomas Fletcher led the group with very quick hands, incredible form and flawless snaps under pressure. Nick Saban and Alabama got a great one when Fletcher committed on full scholarship to the Tide.

The top four Long Snappers that headed into the competition for the final Army All-American spot were Drew Wise, Kyle Gibbs, Jake Pagel and Mitch Hall. The first ball was between Drew Wise and Kyle Gibbs. Both Long Snappers were excellent over the two day span with VERY fast snaps on a consistent basis. Gibbs proved to be the better Long Snapper by knocking out Wise in just a couple of snaps.

Mitch Hall Army All American

Mitch Hall Army All American

The next battle was between Jake Pagel and Mitch Hall. Both Long Snappers showed great accuracy over the two day span with no let off when heavy pressure or blocking was thrown into the mix. Mitch Hall took the lead early in this one and never let up to defeat Pagel.

The final Army All-American spot came down to a snap off between Kyle Gibbs and Mitch Hall. The heated match went for many snaps as the Long Snappers had to get a total of seven points. They both hit a three right off the bat, but Mitch Hall was able to pull away in the end and earn the coveted Army All-American spot for the East Team!

2018

Max Durschlag

Max Durschlag

The top two Long Snappers in this class were Maddie Golden and Max Durschlag with Durschlag coming out on top in the end to claim the title 2018 TOP GUN MVP Long Snapper. Durschlag started slow but got hot at the right time and was smooth as silk on the final day. Doesn’t say much but doesn’t need to do when he is throwing heat like he did on the final day.

2019

Frank melgarejo

Frank melgarejo

The top two Long Snappers in this class were Drew Little and Frank Melgarejo with Melgarejo edging out Little in the competition to claim the title 2019 TOP GUN MVP Long Snapper. Melgarejo is a very athletic Long Snapper with good upside. Hands are strong and he is aggressive when he is snapping. Working on smoothing out his snapping motion will greatly move him up the ladder. Good potential.

2020

Kameron Hawkins and Aaron Estrada

Kameron Hawkins and Aaron Estrada

Aaron Estrada and Kameron Hawkins were the top 2020 Long Snappers and both earned the honor of being FBU All-Americans at the Alamo Dome in January. Estrada outlasted Jacob Zuhr while Hawkins out performed Jackson Worthen in the finals. Estrada has a nice, long frame with good starting form and can handle pressure well. Hawkins was flat out dominant on both days of the camp and was snapping pearls non-stop. Both of these Long Snappers have the potential to be very dominant over the next couple years.

Carson Garrison was named a 2021 FBU All-American and be invited to the game in January at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio. He was crowned champion by defeating Nick Walker in a snap off on day two of the TOP GUN Camp. Garrison was solid over the two day span with consistent and accurate snaps with times right at the 1 second mark at worst. Very good upside and he handles pressure really well.

Recap of the NC Summer Camp (7/11/16)

12814074_969087929834004_1802732804974303182_nRubio Long Snapping traveled to North Carolina on July 11th, 2016 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be back in Illinois on November 20th. You can register for that camp HERE.

Long Snappers from NC, VA, OH, NY, PA, KY, SC, MA, IL, TX & TN all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

tyler-keaton7087

CHAMPION TYLER KEATON!

The overall camp champion was TYLER KEATON (NC, ’17)! Keaton was nails under pressure winning the accuracy and overall championship in NC. Body is thick and he moves well on his feet. Locking down his spiral and increasing his speed a bit will really push him up the rankings.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall was a machine in NC. Ball is extremely smooth and he didn’t have a bad snap all day. Kid was on fire and can snap at the next level right now. Very accurate Long Snapper that continues to impress me with his snapping and attitude.

Kanyon Combs looked excellent with very fast snaps that can hover in the low .7s and great athleticism.

Ryan Schwind can pass an eyeball test well and snaps with good power. Ball is consistently in the .7s and on target. Great upside. keep a very close eye on this Long Snapper from VA.

Thomas Bowling is a very athletic Long Snapper with good pop and a smooth ball to the punter. Always improving.

Austin Reeves is very smooth and always snapping a catchable ball. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he does.

Bryant Sasser has a long frame, good snap speed and upside. Love to see him put on some size and snap with more confidence. Good potential.

NOTABLES: Joe Christian, Zach Cannon, John Lawson, Ryan Watkins, Tucker Mullis

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Maddie Golden

Maddie Golden

Maddie Golden was throwing some severe heat. Strong framed and has great form. The bigger he gets, the better he does. Laser focused and can dominate a camp. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit to see him win a big Event soon.

Brock Assel has grown about a foot and it has really paid off with his snapping. He looked the best I have seen him in the past year and looks to move way up the charts. Watch him closely.

Matt Aloni is a thick Long Snapper with good form and upside. His hands are like rockets.

AJ Covan is one of the smoothest and most accurate Long Snappers in his class. Locking down some more speed and getting him into the .7s by XXIX will be huge for him as he shoots for TOP 12.

NOTABLES: Trey Gable, Michael Vojvodich, Corbin Robertson, Max Durschlag,

Drew Little

Drew Little

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Drew Little did really well all day in NC. Form is excellent for his age and he is starting to grow to dominate. When he snaps with absolute full power, he is incredible. Great work ethic.

Luke Rizzo is a good physical athlete that is coming along nicely. The more I see him, the better he looks. Keep a very close eye on him in Texas and at XXIX.

NOTABLES: Garrett Karres, Brad George, Matthew Gastaldo, Liam Crowley

Ryan Purcell

Ryan Purcell

Top 2020 and 2021 Long Snappers

Ryan Purcell was the best overall 2020 Long Snapper in attendance. He can already hit in the .8s with his great form and strong snaps.

Michael Bowles is a very smooth Long Snapper with great form. As he continues to mature, he will gain speed and power.

Will Mitchell is a very good Long Snapper with excellent form for his age. Good upside and he is going to be big.

Stewart Jones was a solid 2021 Long Snapper with good power and quick hands.

Trent McGaughey is a massive Long Snapper for his age that is absolutely dripping with potential. Once he gets the snapping motion down, he will crush the punter. Quick learner.

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target and will always be announced when they are completed on social media. For summer camps, they have been promised by October 1, 2016 due to the amount of travel Rubio Long Snapping will have to do.
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and my several select member of my senior staff. 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 of the NC Camp (3/13)

12814074_969087929834004_1802732804974303182_nRubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on March 13th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from NY, VA, GA, IL, SC, MA, OH, NJ, IL, WI, CT, PA, TN, MI & NC to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Noah Turner (NC, ’18)! Noah was on fire all day and deserved the win. Kid snaps with great power for his age and has form. Upside is off the charts for this Long Snapper from NC. He is very good for his age and just looks to keep getting better.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Jack Quiggle

Jack Quiggle

Jack Quiggle was on his game and dominated in NC. VERY athletic Long Snapper that will transition well into the college game with added size. Very good attitude and upside.

  • Harrison Freeman is large and smooth with his snapping. Passes an eyeball test quickly and is really learning to snap with full power. Great attitude.
  • Wyman Baxley has unlimited potential. Incredible athlete that flies down the field.
  • Riley John is coming along nicely. Improving rapidly.
  • Jack Wellenhoffer is flat out just good and getting better.

Notables: Chandler Honeycutt, Charles McDonough and Austin Kliewer

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall is growing like a weed and snapping like a college Long Snapper. Form is impeccable and he rips it back to the punter. Great attitude and he is always improving.

  • Kyle O’Connor is VERY accurate and consistent. Ball is almost always in The Rubio Zone. Watch him VERY closely at XXVIII in May.
  • Marshall Coluzzi had a great day in NC. Incredible accurate and consistent Long Snapper. When he is his groove, he is dominant.
  • Kevin Crabtree is REALLY coming along nicely and could easily nab an EVENT ELITE spot at XXVIII in May.
  • Ryan Culbertson is smooth and very consistent. Really need to see him explode out of the gate instead of sliding into the snapping motion.
  • Kyle Davis was impressive in NC with his power and form.
  • Austin Reeves is a smooth Long Snapper with good upside. Consistency of speed and more snaps in The Rubio Zone is what I will be searching for at XXVIII in May.
  • Callen Davidson is smooth and consistent. Trusting his form to let the ball fly out of his hands will help a ton.
  • Ryan Schwind moves well and can be dominant.

Notables: Ryan Watkins, Jason Anderson, Logan Odum, Nick Low, Carson Tebbetts and Gunner Daniel

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Noah Turner

Noah Turner

Noah Turner was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. Strong, powerful and uses his whole body really well. Upside is very good.

  • Jack Hadley is strong and getting better by the second. Keep a VERY close eye on this Long Snapper from NJ.
  • Maddie Golden came out and really impressed me. This kid is good and going to be great.
  • Kent Vines was on par all day with the top Long Snappers in NC. Always improving.
  • James Rosenberry is one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in his class.
  • AJ Covan can find a groove and then it is over for the rest of his class. VERY accurate.

Notables: Max Durschlag, Matt Aloni

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Rhys Suter

Rhys Suter

Rhys Suter shows great poise, form and speed for his age. Dominant freshman in NC and the sky is the limit.

  • Drew Little has great form, a tremendous attitude and is always improving.
  • Dylan McCardel was good from start to finish. Upside.

Notables: Garrett Karres, Liam Crowley and John Morton
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 of the NC Summer Camp (7/25)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on July 25th for their summer camp. This group of Long Snappers absolute blew me away with the talent from top to bottom.

Long Snappers came out from VA, NC, PA, GA, OH, SC, MA, FL, WV, MD, AL, TN, TX, NJ & IL to learn from the best and get the most exposure.

The overall winner of the camp was Jacob Rubinstein (FL, ’17). He handled pressure extremely well and was very accurate. Incredible personality and always smiling. Very consistent Long Snapper.

    Ben Wyatt

    Ben Wyatt left no doubt he was the best Long Snapper at the camp. He is big, strong and very accurate when he is snapping the ball to the punters. Kid is a machine. His misses are by inches.

  • Jackson Quiggle could catch fire and dominate a camp when he catches a groove.
  • Stephen Klotz is VERY close to greatness and definitely someone to watch.
  • Brett DioGuardi has great size and a wonderful attitude. Very smooth Long Snapper.
  • Charles McDonough has the ability to snap at the next level once his spiral is locked down. Great form.
  • Jack Wellenhoffer has all the tools to be a great one. Built very long.
  • Noah Flowers is one of the strongest Long Snappers in his class.
  • Spencer Mamo showed me some great things throughout the day. Consistency will be key.
  • Nathan Millar has TONS of upside and definitely someone to watch in the future.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Mitch Hall

    Mitch Hall

    Mitch Hall was exceptional all day and was the speed champion with times in the low .6s. Locking down the consistency moves him to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

  • Austin Reeves is smooth, accurate and always improving.
  • Tristan Sokach-Minnick was VERY impressive in NC. Ball is tight, on target and VERY fast. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXVII. Trust me on this one.
  • Grant Miller continues to improve and be the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. Tremendous frame.
  • Quinn Stephenson has some of the quickest hands in his class. Ball is fast.
  • Ryan Schwind wooed me throughout the day with his speed and attitude.
  • Ryan Culbertson is starting to move into place to dominate a camp. Wouldn’t surprise me to see him win a camp soon.
  • Kanyon Combs showed waves of brilliance.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Noah Turner

    Noah Turner

    Noah Turner was OUTSTANDING all day in NC. Ball is at D1 speeds right now. Locking down his form and making sure all is smoothed out will make him unstoppable.

  • Ryan Walsh was smooth and accurate. Strength and confidence will be key in moving up the rankings.
  • AJ Covan showed great poise throughout the competition aspect of the camp. Very impressed with his demeanor.

OVERALL NOTABLES FROM THE CAMP: Jacob Zuhr, Drew Little, Jarrod Jacobson, Carson Tebbets, Ryan Watkins

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.
