Recap of the TX Spring Camp (3/26/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on March 26th, 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 Arizona and New Jersey on April 9th, April 23 in Illinois and April 30th in Georgia.

This was the fourth 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

Champion Dillon Hayes

Long Snappers from TX, AR, OK, LA, CT, ID, IL, MS, KS all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Dillon Hayes! Dillon is coming off several days of private lessons in Idaho and you can tell it definitely paid off. He was smooth, accurate, VERY consistent and handles pressure like, well, a champion. This is his second victory in a row as Dillon also was crowned the champion of VEGAS XXIX!  His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

You can see the full finals (Jax Wilson, Karsten Battles, Dillon Hayes, Jake Pagel, Trevor Fleming, Chris Clore) below ….

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Jake Pagel

Jake Pagel left no doubt he is just a flat out stud when snapping the ball. His hands are some of the quickest I have seen and it shows with the speed of his ball as it is rarely above .75. He will do great at Texas A&M.

Drew Wise was on fire throughout the day as he prepares to head to Missouri in the summer. Body is big and he throws a ton of heat on the ball. Love the direction he is headed and he is always improving.

Noah Caldwell looked very solid. Body is thicker and he was snapping with good power. Form is good and his hands are like rockets.

Caleb Cantrell is headed to Wyoming and he left no doubt he can succeed there with his quick hands and great form. Love his attitude.

Chris Clore is a large Long Snapper with tons of intelligence and great form. When he is reaching back all the way and snapping hard, there are few that are better.

Trevor Fleming made it to the finals and got at the right time. Good form and I like his attitude. Moved well on his feet and handles pressure well. Well done to Grambling State getting Trevor.

Notables: Pierce Warn, Andrew Morrison, Dillon Hall

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles had a great day in TX. He is big, powerful and snaps a great ball back to the punter. Almost ended up winning the whole thing and I don’t think it will be long until he claims a championship of his own. Lots of upside and he just keeps getting better.

Zach Edwards is one of the smoothest and most consistent Long Snappers in his class. Major athlete and he just keeps getting better. Hands are rockets and the ball is at college level speed right now!

John Raines was throwing incredible heat all day in TX. Form is good and he is using his whole body really well. Love his improvement and if he can get his spiral locked down at VEGAS 30 in May, he could easily be a TOP 12 Camp member.

Evan Gibson continues to improve and impress me. Moving well on his feet and snapping with confidence. The harder he snaps, the better he does. Great attitude and upside.

Tre Rubio had a great camp and has done an incredible job of improving over the years. Ball is VERY smooth  and extremely catchable. Tight spiral and his form is almost perfect.

Jax Wilson had the highest RSI score of the camp and is absolutely dripping with potential. MASSIVE human being that could easily find himself on a college roster for Long Snapping if he focuses on his form and being more consistent. Incredible talent.

Cole Voyles is long, lean and dripping with potential. I love the upside on this kid from TX. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Tyler Springer threw some great snaps throughout the day and was always snapping sub .75. He definitely has the ability to snap at the next level and can be a TOP 12 member with some more accuracy.

Turner Pallisard is a strong Long Snapper that practically looks like a college tight end right now. Potential is off the charts and his consistency will be the thing that makes or breaks him at VEGAS 30.

Notables: Brayden Adams, Grayson Broussard, Jack Fisher, Justin Hutyra, Ryan Rey, Chris Stoneking,

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Hayden Hood

Hayden Hood was exceptional all day in TX. His snaps were absolutely screaming back to the punter and the kid moves well on his feet. Smoothing out his snapping motion will help in the long run but he is already on his way to greatness.

Luke Rizzo is coming along very nicely. He is thick and strong with quick hands. he can really whip the ball back to the punter. His snaps are consistently in the .7s and just getting faster. Great upside on Rizzo.

Samuel Wiesbrook has a lot of potential on his very long body. Has a frame that could easily put on 50 lbs over the next couple of years. His snaps are quick and he has tons of upside.

Braedy Wilson showed me some great movement on his feet and consistent snaps. Putting on some size will be huge for him as we get ready for VEGAS 30 and beyond.

Jay Dempsey has a nice frame, quick hands and moves well on his feet. Athletic with tons of potential.

Landon Sleeper has good form, a powerful body and a good attitude. Hard worker that will make a college coach happy in the long run

Notables: John Farris, Nate McCormack, David Medrano, Max Murry, Chad Wolf

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS AND BEYOND…

Blake Hooker

Blake Hooker looked VERY solid in TX. He was snapping with confidence and his ball was zipping back to the punter. Never even saw him snap a ball above .80 all day. Great day for Hooker.

Eli Chism looks like he has grown a foot and put on some good weight. Definitely paying off with his snapping as this was the best I have seen him do at a camp. Great upside.

Oden Pierce is a 2021 Long Snapper with good length and lots of upside. Impressive throughout the day.

Haydon Wiginton continues to impress  me. He will be as good as he wants to be with his Long Snapping.

Phillip Bourque has good form, a great attitude and a thick body. He is always improving.

Notables: JT Sleeper, Johnny Bergeron, Zach Chlore, Jake Foggia, Coltin Knape, Alec Eckert, Jackson McFarland, Jake Eldridge, Thad Baker

Recap of the TX Summer Camp (7/7/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on July 7th, 2016 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be back in Texas on December 4th. You can register for that event HERE.

Long Snappers from TX, LA, MS, SC, KS, OK & NM all traveled to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure drew-wise6289possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was DREW WISE (KS, ’17)! Drew was absolutely on fire all day long and was actually my horse going into the finals. Unlike many before him, the pressure of being “chosen” as the horse did not impact him and he was dominant. He barely lost the accuracy portion, came back to win the speed competition and was nails in the overall. He has great size and snaps a D1 ball right now. Consistency will be huge for him as we head into the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE camp!

2017

jake-pagel6287Jake Pagel (TX) had a good ending to the camp. He has some of the quickest hands you will see in his class and the ball rockets back to the punter. Body is thick and he can hover in the high .6s for punts.

Caleb Cantrell (TX) was excellent all day long. He has some very quick hands and the ball really rips back to the punter. Love to see some more size on him and completely lock down the spiral. He is a very solid Long Snapper.

Reeves Blankenship (LA) had waves of brilliance in TX. When he is on, he is REALLY on. Incredible size and I love the upside on this kid from LA. Keep a very close eye on him. It is all about to click for Reeves.

Joseph Cotton (AZ) was solid in TX. Built long and has a frame that will be incredible in college. Ball can pop back to the punter. Needs to focus on not dragging the ball and making sure he is using all of his lower to get more consistent speed on the ball. Major upside on Joe.

NOTABLES: Noah Caldwell, Steven Taylor, Dominic Brocato, Jarrod Jacobson, Justyce Hankins

2018

evan-gibson6264Evan Gibson (LA) had a great day in TX. Body is strong and he is getting bigger. Hovers right in the low .8s but it is all starting to click for him now. Keep a very close eye on Evan as we get close to VEGAS XXIX.

Hunter Burson (NM) has good form and I like his attitude. He is almost there. Listens well and is coming along nicely. He can do this.

John Raines (MS) has seemed to have found his spiral and that is going to help a lot. His hands are quick and the ball seems to just appear to the punter. Good upside.

Dillon Hayes (MS) has excellent form and is coachable. Uses his whole body well and will dominate with more confidence.

Tre Rubio (TX) has improved a ton over the past year and looks to just keep heading up. Body is getting stronger and his ball can hover in the high .7s. More athleticism and power will move him him up even more.

Karsten Battles (TX) can pass an eyeball test from 50 yards away and is absolutely dripping with potential. Very athletic and built well. CONSISTENCY will be key for Battles moving up by XXIX.

Notables: Braden Thibodeaux, Austin Ortega, Chris Logan

2019hayden-hood7288

Hayden Hood (TX) quickly separated himself to show the TX camp that he was, by far, the best 2019 Long Snapper in attendance. Kid can fly downfield and is a definite factor in punt coverage. Hips are very solid. Form is coming along nicely and he is headed toward growth. Watch him.

Nate McCormack (TX) handles pressure very well and has great form. Starting to grow which is going to be great for him but bad for the rest of his class. Great attitude.

2020

IMG_0526Blake Hooker (TX) has been with Rubio Long Snapping for quite some time and it is quite apparent. Form is excellent and he is already starting to separate himself from the pack. Great attitude and listens well.
