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.

TOP 12 Recap – Day Three

The best of the best Long Snappers in the country came to Los Angeles, CA for the annual Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE Camp! The three day event featured instruction, evaluation and top snappers competing against one another for 72 hours straight!

Long Snappers came in Los Angeles from TX, NC, AZ, CA, MS, AR, KS, OH, IL, IN, WA, GA, MN, WI and VA to compete against one another and learn from the best. The first day of camp was used to halt the butterflies and knock off the rust from a long travel day for many of the athletes. The second day was all about letting the Long Snappers show their skill while perfecting their blocking and snapping under pressure. The third day was all about competition, filming and camaraderie.

At this camp there are several Long Snappers already with full ride offers. Tanner Carew has committed to Oregon, Blake Ferguson has been offered a scholarship to LSU and Liam McCullough has picked up two offers this week: one from Michigan St and one from Wisconsin.

The overall winner of the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp was Liam McCullough! Liam was challenged by Kyle Murphy in the finals but Liam outlasted Kyle in a great battle. Liam caught a groove on Saturday and simply never let it go. He was extremely smooth and dominant on Sunday. The Target was his friend and the ball’s home was the 3 point slot.

Liam McCullough

This camp, which is definitely one of my favorites since you get to see the personalities of the Long Snappers over the weekend, did not disappoint. The overall talent was absurd. From top to bottom, the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE Long Snappers left no doubt they were the best in the country. They snapped with confidence as their slowest timed snap of the weekend is a very good .81 with a fastest at a .59. This group should go down in the books as one of the more accurate and consistent groups of Long Snappers to tackle this camp. Great snappers, excellent people and solid personalities made it a great weekend.

Some Long Snappers that just continuously stood out during the weekend were….

Tanner Carew – Beyond smooth and athletic. His ball just jumps back at you, yet it still hits your hands smoothly. Tremendous attitude.

Alan Lucy – Excellent speed, accuracy and just keeps improving. Easily the best available Long Snapper in the country and should pick up an offer in the very near future. He absolutely rips the ball back there.

Wyatt Tucker Smith – Is built like a D1 Long Snapper, he snaps like a D1 Long Snapper and will be a D1 Long Snapper. He has all the tools and should have an offer quickly.

Blake Ferguson – Already with one offer in hand, I wouldn’t be surprised to see many more by the time he is ready to sign. Built extremely well and is overflowing with confidence when he is snapping. He could snap a ball in college right now…easily.

Davis Winkie – Massive man that looked very solid all weekend. He is really smoothing his snap out and fine-tuning his form. When he is on, he is the best in the country…and he is very close to always being on.

Wyatt Pfeifer – Big frame and was really using it all weekend. Snapping hard and with a ton of confidence.

Casey Wilson – Easily the smoothest Long Snapper in the country. He has really improved his blocking and it is paying off. Great overall Long Snapper.

Joel Baldwin – Flat out impressive all weekend. Not very boisterous but doesn’t need to be. He lets his snapping do his talking for him. Body is improving by the minute and he is snapping the ball well.

Seth Combs – Snapped hard all weekend and let his great form do all the work. Tremendous improvement and I don’t see him stopping. Keep a very close eye on him.

Nate Adams – Built like a college linebacker. Snaps a very, very accurate and consistent ball. Form has improved tremendously and he is close as possible to being “there.” Moves extremely well on his feet.

CJ Keller – He has an extremely tight spiral and might be the most consistent Long Snapper in the country. He is like a pitching machine when he snaps…they are all exactly the same. The more athletic he gets, the more offers he will pick up.

Next stop for Rubio Long Snapping is the Underclassmen Invite Event next weekend in CA where the top 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 Long Snappers will embark to compete.

All-American Team

Starting this year, Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer Kicking will be choosing an All-American Team!

We will be choosing 4 High School and 4 College All-Americans. We will also be choosing a Most Improved Kicker, Punter and Long Snapper for the year as well.

One of the best parts about these awards, besides the honor itself, is that they will be announced on Friday, January 17th in Las Vegas. Yup, that is the day before the world’s largest kicking, punting and Long Snapping event and everyone will be on hand for the ceremony.

Also, in Vegas on that same night, Herbalife 24 will be announcing the Chris Rubio Award and Chris Sailer Award for top High School Long Snapper and Kicker of the Year!

Therefore, instead of just a handful of lucky families being able to see the Chris Rubio and Chris Sailer Award presentations, there will now be hundreds. The awards ceremony will take place in a ballroom at the JW Marriott with the front tables being reserved for the finalists and their families, while the rest of the ballroom will be open seating and free to the public. Imagine the NFL draft in your head….that is what this will look like in Vegas.

With no further adieu, here are the Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer Kicking Pre-Season All-Americans….

RECAP: 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas

On May 4-5, 2013 well over 100 Long Snappers from around the globe came out to Las Vegas to participate in the 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas sponsored by Nike. The talent was excellent and so were the conditions. The staff was overflowing with one staff member per three Long Snappers so everyone was able to get the full experience throughout the weekend. Day one of the Event was all about instruction and many Long Snappers stood out immediately to make a name for themselves.

After it was all said and done, the winner of the camp was CJ Keller (2014, AZ). CJ handles pressure as well as anyone in the country, was snapping bullets all day and is very, very accurate and consistent. Kid is a machine and outlasted the rest of the competitors to take home the title!

CJ Keller

Winner of the 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event: CJ KELLER!

The 12 finalists that earned their spot through their RSI score on the Target were: Nate Adams (AZ), Wyatt “Tucker” Smith (MS), RC Brunstetter (NC), Jordan Frese (TX), Tanner Carew (CA), Justin Garza (CA), Jake Knight (MI), CJ Keller (AZ), Bryan Scanlan (IL), Blake Ferguson (GA), Jordan Ober (NV) and Chris Nieto (CA).

Meet the 2013 Members of the TOP 12!

After every National Snapping Event in Las Vegas in January, I choose the TOP 12 underclassmen Long Snappers. They are the best of the best out in Vegas and are selected to participate in the Invite Only TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE (these Long Snappers will be chosen after the Spring Event in Vegas) during the summer.

The percent of Long Snappers that have been invited to this camp and continued their careers into college is well over 95%!

If you make this list, you obviously can snap the ball and do it well. Now, I wanted to give you a bit of insight on them off the field. In alphabetical order….
