Recap of the NJ Summer Camp (7/15/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on July 15th, 2017 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this upcoming summer and fall (dates being posted soon) instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Long Snappers from NJ, VA, PA, NY and MD all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

Overall Champion Joe Shimko with Corey Adams

For the overall RSI scores from the NJ camp, please go HERE

The overall champion of the camp was Joe Shimko. Joe has been a Rubio Long Snapper for quite some time now and has shown tremendous improvement in a short period of time. Not only was he the overall champion, he was also the speed champion, beating out Austin Mosier in a sudden death finals. Joe is a great kid who works very hard.

The finals were between Declan McCauley (31.03), Nick Wissinger (28.57), Joe Shimko (23.08), Joe McCabe (21.88), Jake Foggia (19.78), and Zach Zimmerman (18.56).

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Nick Wissinger had a great day in NJ. He snaps the ball with a lot of aggression and power. The ball jumps back towards the punter in a hurry and is very accurate at the same time. Needs to watch picking the ball a tiny bit as he snaps and watch his weight distribution, but he showed great coachability and know he will work on those immediately.

Brian Richards showed a tremendous amount of athletic and physical talent during the camp in NJ. Massive human being who looks like he could play TE in college right now. Very raw and with some fine tuning of his form he can be excellent. Snaps with a lot of power and will only get better from here on out.

Kenneth King soaks up every single thing you say to him and works to incorporate them immediately on the field. Beyond coachable and has a great attitude. Has come a long way with his form, and with more consistent and explosive snapping he will see a night and day difference in his speed.

Matt Gannon may have been one of the most improved snappers at the camp. His form looks night and day difference from the last NJ regional camp, and has a bright future ahead of him if he continues to improve like he has. Very good athlete who crushed the agility drill.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Austin Mosier is so big and powerful for his age it is almost unfair. He was ripping the ball back all day and was barely missing. The scary thing is he has more power in him if he can get his butt down just a tad more and use his legs fully. Very high ceiling for this snapper and am excited to see him improve!

Joe Shimko was great all day. Snaps a very quick ball and his accuracy continues to improve. Absolutely destroyed the agility drill and showed he can be effective in coverage after snapping the ball. His blocking has improved as well and he is starting to develop into the full package.

Zach Zimmerman had a great first outing at his first Rubio Long Snapping camp. His form is darn near perfect, just needs to get his legs engaged a little sooner and it will be flawless. He made the later rounds of the speed competition with his quick hands. Am excited to see how much progress he has made at his next Rubio Long Snapping camp!

Brian Cocciolillo showed some very technically sound form all day and showed a lot of improvement on the minor details as well. As he continues to snap harder and more power things will click for him. On the verge of it all coming together and jumping up the charts.

Andrew McGimpsey is a very large and athletic snapper who has all the tools to be great. His frame is so long that if he can get his legs fully involved in the snap, he will snap bullets back to the punter. Great kid and attitude and know he will take everything taught at the camp home with him and get better.

Michael O’Keefe had a strong showing all day. Very strong kid who shows flashes of excellence when everything works together. Becoming more consistent will be the next major hurdle for him, but know that with continued drill work and smart training he can achieve it!

Thomas Dougherty has tons of upside that he on the verge of capturing. Very coachable kid who was hungry to get better all day. Very close to it all coming together for him, and am excited to see his improvement at the next Rubio Long Snapping Camp!

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Bryce Eimer was excellent all day, and his snapping well beyond his age. Snaps a very hard ball and the only time he misses is high because the ball continues to climb back at such a great rate to the punter. Sky is the limit for Bryce and expect big things out of him in the next few years.

Declan McCauley is so big and smooth it is unbelievable, and then factor his age into the equation and it is unheard of! Will be able to get more speed on his ball when he can incorporate his legs fully, and when that happens there is a very strong chance he could be one of the top snappers in his class.

Jake Foggia has improved so much over the past 6 months it is exciting to see. He snaps a very smooth, catchable, accurate ball. Once he is able to consistently snap hard and gain a bit more strength he is going to put a lot of people in his class on notice.

Joe McCabe is a very accurate snapper which tons of potential. Once he can fine tune some things with his lower body and his follow though, everything will come together for him nicely. Great kid who is very coachable and look forward to seeing him at the next Rubio Long Snapping camp!

Frank Lord had a very productive camp, showing a lot of improvement throughout the day. He is a good athlete with great flexibility, and as he continues to work on the small details in his snap, he will see rapid improvement. Snapping hard and trusting his form will be big for him, but seeing how coachable he was on the field and in the class room I know he will be up for the challenge!

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS
Zack Taylor shows tremendous skill for his age. His form is off the charts and the only thing he will need is time. More strength and size will be big for him, just needs to be patient. Excited to see him develop over the next four years!

Paul Meyers is dripping with so much potential it is scary. He is very tall with a great long frame. Getting his form down now prior to putting on muscle will be extremely important, and he is already well on his way. His ceiling is very high, just needs to be persistent and put in work – which I know he will!

RSI Scores from the NJ Summer Camp

Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair.

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 90 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). The highest I have ever encountered is a 86.96 by Karsten Battles! The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid.

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush)

Long Snappers from GA, TN, FL, KY, AL & MS all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

For the overall RSI Scores from the GA Camp, please go HERE

Overalll Camp Champ, Luke Payne and Speed Champ, Quentin Skinner

The overall champion of the camp was Luke Payne (GA, ’19). Luke caught fire late in the back and didn’t let up. He handles pressure really well and is very accurate with his snapping. Smooth Long Snapper that is coming along nicely and can snap consistently in the low .8s. Really proud of Luke and how he is progressing.

The finals were between Evan Dvorchik (42.31), JC Vega (42.25), Zach Lassiter (36.49), Quentin Skinner (36.00), Carter Short (35.53) and Luke Payne (33.75). The full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Evan Dvorchik looked great out in GA. He continues to fine tune his body and he is leaving no doubt he can snap at the next level. Strong Long Snapper that can snap in the low .7s when he is on. I am looking forward to watching Evan snap at the TOP 12 Camp. Great attitude.

Dillon Hayes was smooth as silk in GA. His ball speed was picking up really nicely and he continues to be one of he most accurate Long Snappers in his class. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for him in the coming months.

Camren Wood was pretty impressive in GA. He has grown and put on some good size which is helping with the speed of his snaps. He has the ability to snap in the low .7s and he has excellent form.

Notables: Michael Shible, Patrick Rahiya, Nicholas Gleaton

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Quentin Skinner had a great day in GA with his very large and strong frame. He was the faster overall Long Snapper in attendance and salon one of the most athletic. Form is excellent and he simply doesn’t miss when he follows all the way through to the punter. Hard worker that is always improving. LSU got a great one in Mad Dog.

JC Vega looked outstanding in GA. Easily one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. When he gets fully set, he can absolutely rip the ball back to the punter. Hitting in the .6s is child’s play for JC. Consistency of snapping motion and putting on some size will be huge for him.

Christian Johnstone has an excellent frame and a very smooth snap. Ball can hit in the mid .7s and he moves well on his feet. Massive upside for Christian.

Mason Napper looked very solid in GA. He has a great body and is an athlete on the field. Starting to really come into his own and I love the direction he is headed with his excellent attitude.

William Wagner is a thick and strong Long Snapper with very good power. Locking down the consistency of his snapping motion and increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings. Love his attitude.

Zach Lassiter has the ability to be one of the best overall Long Snappers in his class. At times, he can absolutely rip th ball back to the punter. Moves well on his feet and listens well.

Codey Bennett has good accuracy and is a consistent Long Snapper. Pretty much locked into the mid .7s on his time and his body is thickening up well. Very good attitude.

Cade DeGraw showed great promise in GA. Strong Long Snapper that, when he is on, can easily be in the top ten in his class. Massive upside on Cade.

Cody Olszewski showed good snaps throughout the day in GA. Thick and strong Long Snapper that can hit in the .7s. Consistency of his snapping motion will help him as we progress.

Mark Fuchs showed me some good things in GA. Big fan of his attitude and upside. Extremely athletic Long Snapper that will be a factor on punt coverage.

Notables: Graham Leslie, Carson Knight, Jack Harrison, Connor Bullard

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Grant Reid was the best overall 2020 Long Snapper in attendance at the GA Camp. Built long and has the ability to snap in the .7s with good consistency. Really solid upside on Grant. He has quick hands and moved well on his feet.

Jake Sayer was solid all day long in GA. His hands are very quick and I loved how well he moved on his feet.

William Long was consistent with his snaps and moved well on his feet.

Notables: Dylan Hughes, Kaleb Shottenkirk, Colby Cox, Dawson Roe

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Carter Short was very solid in GA and actually made it to the finals! Ball can be very quick for his age and he has a good attitude.

Recap of the NC Summer Camp (7/9/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NC on July 9th, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Speed Champion, Oscar Shadley and Overall Champion, Drew Little

Long Snappers from NC, TX, MS, VA, CA, SC, NJ, WV, OH, FL & DE all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

For the overall RSI Scores from the NC Camp, please go HERE

The overall champion of the camp was Drew Little (NC, ’19). Drew was on fire all day long in NC and left no doubt he is 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. His ball is extremely fast and his accuracy is college level right now. He could snap in college tonight, let alone in two years. NC State offering him was great move in my opinion.

The finals were between Oscar Shadley (75.00), Drew Little (66.18), Dillon Hayes (61.64), Sam DeLuke (58.33), Kameron Hawkins (56.76) and Karsten Battles (52.77). The full finals video can be seen below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley left absolutely no doubt he is the best Long Snapper in the country. His ball rarely gets above .72, his accuracy is incredible and he has ice going through his veins. Athletically, he will dominate on the field. I simply can’t say enough good things about him.

Karsten Battles did extremely well in NC. He has great size, is very solid with his frame and he can move on his feet. One of the most accurate Long Snappers in the country. Ball is quick and very powerful back to the punter. When he gets his eyes all the way through, he never misses.

Brock Assel was very solid in NC. Body is looking very good and he is snapping with a lot of confidence. He hovered in the low .7s to high .6s all day long and is definitely looking ready for the next level.

Sam DeLuke made it to the finals round and could have easily won it if he just had bit more gas in the tank. In one of his matches, he went through twelve rounds of snaps and that wore him down a bit. Body is thick and strong. Ball has very good power on it.

Dillon Hayes was looking very accurate and consistent all day. Body is thickening up well and his ball jumps out of the gate quickly. Locking down his spiral will be the key to moving up the rankings.

Corbin Robertson is a large Long Snapper with good form and a solid attitude. The more athletic he gets, the better he will be in the long run.

Collin Springer showed good promise in NC. I really like his attitude and drive. Showed good hips and he can move pretty well on his feet.

Marshall Eury had a great day in NC and left no doubt he is improving with his snapping. Tremendous attitude and he is built strong.

Trey Gable showed great athleticism and has an excellent attitude. His snapping is coming along very nicely.

Notables: Nathan Allen, Jon Eric Kirkland, Ken King, Keelan Grainger, Brett Duffey

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Little left no doubt he is, easily, one of the best 2019 Long Snappers in the country. Ball is a rocket and his form is perfect. He creates an incredible amount of power on his ball as it roars back to the punter. Great attitude on this hardworking Long Snapper.

Kevin Thompson was impressive in NC was great snap speeds that hovered under .80 all day long. Built strong and has good power in his body.

Sam Katz was solid all day in NC. Moved well on his feet and can snap under. 75 when he is on. Good upside and I like his attitude.

Brandon Hurst is dripping with potential. Athletic frame and he moves very well on his feet. Focusing on form will help him greatly over the next couple of years and beyond.

Jacob Gibbons is starting to really shine and snap with some power. The more confidence he has, the better he will be.

Notables: Milton Johnston, Christian Mitchell

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Kameron Hawkins came all the way out from CA and was on a mission. He was snapping with great power and can snap a college level ball right now….let alone in 3 years. Improving his athleticism will move him closer to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

Jake Foggia was very accurate and consistent all day in NC. Form is coming along nicely and I am impressed with his attitude.

Will Mitchell is dripping with potential. He looked solid in NC and he has a great attitude. Keep a very close eye on Will over the next couple of years.

Mason Williams is a strong Long Snapper with good form. His ball is quick and he can already get it under. 80 at times. Lots of upside on Mason.

Notables: Cody White, Logan Watson, Michael Bowles

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Alex McClaughlin had a great day in NC and really impressed me with his overall snap speeds. He had no problem hitting in the low .8s!

Recap of the TX Summer Camp (6/30/2017)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on June 30, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

Karsten Battles (Speed Champion) and John Raines (Overall Champion)

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be the FBU TOP GUN Camp (July 7-8), North Carolina (July 9), Georgia (July 11), Illinois (July 13), College Camp (July 14-16), New Jersey (July 15), TOP 12 Camp (July 17-19), Underclassmen Invitational (July 20-21) and California (July 27)!

Long Snappers from TX, KS, LA, S, FL OK, OH, NM, AR, CO, MN, NY & CA all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping.

The overall camp champion was John Raines of MS. Raines got fire in the afternoon and hit three after three after three to claim the title of champion! His form is good and he was snapping with some good pop back to the punter. He also came in second place in the speed competition! Easily one of the best days Raines has had in front of me. Very impressed and so will college coaches if he continues at this pace.

The finals were between Karsten Battles (86.96), Zach Edwards (57.33), John Raines (53.42), Hayden Hood (50.65), Evan Gibson (40.74) and Nate McCormack (26.26). The full finals video can be seen below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles absolutely destroyed the RSI beating the previous high RSI score by over 20 points. He literally scored every single point you could and averaged under .70 for each snap! Battles ended up being the overall speed champ of the camp. This kid is ready for college…NOW!

Zach Edwards is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and he crushed the agility section of the camp. Form is very good and when he is on, he is really on. Very close to greatness.

Evan Gibson looked very smooth and strong throughout the day in TX. Confidence is starting to come along nicely and his accuracy is solid. Always improving and the kid is a workhorse.

Cole Voyles was impressive in TX with good speed and solid hip movement through the agility section. Built long and has room to put on some good weight over the next year.

Dillon Hayes showed good accuracy and consistency. Really driving his chest through will pick up his speed and make him a top Long Snapper.

Tre Rubio was snapping pearls all day long in TX. Form is good and his spiral is on point. Very impressed with Tre’s improvement over the last year.

Tyler Springer showed great athleticism and quick hands getting the ball back to the punter.

Notables: Freddy Barnes, Ryan Jurczak, Marshall Ballard, Grayson Broussard

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Hayden Hood

Hayden Hood is beyond athletic and snaps a powerful ball back to the punter. When he is on, he is very on. Great speed on his ball with very little wasted movement makes Hayden one of the best in his class.

Enzo Anthony has great form and is one of the best lefties in the country. Growing really well and his athleticism is picking up nicely. Ball can pop back to the punter with good power.

Caden Bolz did really well in TX. Power is solid and he is snapping the ball consistently in the mid to high .7s. Some slight tweaks to his form will really increase his overall accuracy and consistency. Great start to Caden.

Nate McCormack is coming along nicely with good pop and some speeds in the low .8s. Extending out a bit will really help increase the speed of the ball and move him way up the rankings. Good improvement and I like the direction he is headed.

Chad Wolf is a Long Snapper with great size and potential. Consistency is solid and his speeds are in the high .7s. Sky is the limit for Wolf.

Notables: Austin Adams, Chase Crabtree, Hudson Brown, Izeya Floyd, Landon Sleeper, Max Murry, John Farris, Tyler Hanes

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Blake Hooker

Blake Hooker was solid all day in TX. Form is very good and so is his attitude. His hands are really quick and he can already snap, consistently, in the mid .7s. Great upside and always improving.

Ethan Wells was snapping with some good heat all day in TX. Athletically, he does really well and is definitely going to be a factor on the punt coverage team. Pop is very good for his size.

Phillip Bourque has good starting form and lots of potential. I like the way he is exploding and he is getting stronger. Really driving through will increase his overall speed and accuracy. Very good attitude.

John Bergeron showed solid consistency and a good attitude. Always improving.

Nick Wagner has good form, quick hands and solid upside. Moved really well on his feet and is a great athlete on the punt team.

Notables: Zach Clore, Cooper Frazier, Jackson McFarland, Luke Malone, Nolan Pope

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

JT Sleeper

JT Sleeper showed excellent power and very good form. The less he thinks and the harder he snaps, the better he will be in the long run.

Zach Stricker is a solid athlete that moved really well on his feet and snapped with good consistency.

VEGAS 30 – RSI Scores

At VEGAS 30, each Long Snapper was tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend.  Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 80 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). I believe the highest I have ever encountered a 65.22 by Ross Reiter at the AZ Spring Camp. The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid. 

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

  • Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
  • Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
  • Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
  • Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
  • Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
  • Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
  • Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
  • Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush) If you have ever been to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Event, you know that one of the main parts of competition day is when each Long Snapper gets tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.

Rubio Virtual Lessons!

As many of you have noticed at camps, on social media, and through conversation, Rubio Long Snapping is improving every time you see us. We add new drills, new online interviews, change up the TOP 12 format, and market our private instruction all in the efforts to create MAXIMUM exposure for the Rubio Long Snapping family.

Well, we’re improving….AGAIN!

Starting in June, Rubio Long Snapping will be launching Rubio Virtual Lessons which will exclusively be run by long-time senior staff member, John Finch. Over the past eight years, Finch has been my top private instructor (other than yours truly, of course) and he wants to help Long Snappers from all around the world, at every level. Finch has worked privately with over 30 Rubio Long Snappers that have taken their career to the collegiate level including seven TOP 12 Long Snappers in the past three years.

The goal for Rubio Long Snapping is for every Long Snapper to have the opportunity to snap in college and the NFL. Private instruction is a great way to make that happen and we know that not every member of the Rubio family lives near a private instructor. Rubio Virtual Lessons changes that and opens up private instruction to all….no matter the Long Snapper’s location!

You will be able to sign up for online private instruction with Finch through the Rubio Long Snapping registration page. Think of these lessons as the regional camp film session but one on one with just the Long Snapper, the parents and Finch (and possibly even Rubio at times). You will submit film from ten snaps to Finch and he will go through them one by one with each snapper via video chat. He will then give each Long Snapper specific drills to work on before their next session. Every single lesson will be one on one and completely tailored to what the Long Snapper needs. Each Long Snapper will be able to have a top notch private lesson with Rubio Long Snapping!

Packages will be laid out in multiple options and you can register for them HERE….

  • Solo Lesson
  • 4-pack (1 lesson per week for 1 month – 10% overall savings)
  • 8-pack (2 lessons per week for 1 month – 15% overall savings)
  • 12-pack (1 lesson per week for 3 months – 20% overall savings)
  • 24-pack (2 lessons per week for 3 months – 25% overall savings)

Be on the lookout for more information regarding the Rubio Virtual Lessons coming soon and be sure to contact Finch asap to reserve spots as he is only taking a limited number at the beginning of the Rubio Virtual Lessons.

Feel free to reach out to Finch@RubioLongSnapping.com with questions.

Rubio Virtual Lessons does not take place of a private lesson with Rubio or a certified Rubio instructor and will not allow a Long Snapper to be reranked. Only a private lesson with Rubio will do that for a Long Snapper. For more information on a private lesson with Rubio, please email Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com

r4ubio5Rubio 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 13 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.

RSI Scores from the GA Spring Camp (4/30/17)

Starting this spring, all Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will now be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair. 

The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend.  Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.

RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 80 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). I believe the highest I have ever encountered is a 65.22 by Ross Reiter at The Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in AZ. The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid. 

Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:

  • Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
  • Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
  • Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
  • Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
  • Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
  • Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
  • Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
  • Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush) If you have ever been to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Event, you know that one of the main parts of competition day is when each Long Snapper gets tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.

RSI Comparisons between CA, NC, WA, TX, AZ, NJ, IL & GA

As you know by reading this blog, Rubio Long Snapping has adjusted the testing aspect of all regional camps this spring with the “introduction” of the RSI. I put “introduction” in quotes because RSI has been around for MANY years at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS Events but has just recently been worked into the regional camps to add continuity and to track the Long Snappers and their improvement.

For the first Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA, the RSI scores are shown here, the NC RSI scores are shown here, the WA RSI scores are here, the TX RSI scores are shown here, the AZ RSI scores are shown here , the NJ scores are shown here, IL are here and GA is shown here. Now that all eight camps have concluded, here are  the comparisons and contrasts between the geographical areas and their Long Snappers. With no more spring camps left, AZ is the champion of the spring RSI!

Rubio Long Snapping at College Camps

Chris Rubio of Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer of Chris Sailer Kicking will NOT be running any college specialist camps during the summer of 2017.  The NCAA has passed a new rule (April 2017) that prohibits us from coaching at these camps.   The SEC, PAC-12,  BIG 12, etc. have informed us that it would be against NCAA rules to hire us, or anyone else that attempts to do what we do, as they have in the past. 

Most University specialist camps will proceed as usual, but will simply be run by the college football staffs themselves.  No outside coaches will be allowed to help out and if they do, they and the school will be under NCAA penalty.

We still encourage attendance at these camps for 2018 prospects.  However, as always we caution you as to how many you choose to attend.  We recommend 3-5 college camps total.  It is important that you are always fresh and healthy at these camps.  Never snap on back to back days, especially with the travel involved.  Remember, word of mouth will spread very quickly amongst coaches.  Three to five strong performances will go a long way.  One poor performance will spread even quicker.

Rest assured, Sailer and I will be in communication with nearly every program in the nation. College coaches will know who the top Rubio and Sailer prospects are, well before the camps.  Having said that, be sure to attend college camps that match your athletic and academic abilities. Best of luck and be sure to keep us posted on your experiences and performances.

P.S. this does mean my June is opened up a bit and I will be having private lessons. For more information, please email Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com sooner than later as many days have already been locked down.

Long Snappers from AL, GA, OH, MI, FL, TN, CT, MS, MA, NJ, SC, VA, NC & KY all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping. 

The overall camp champion was was Jarrett Key (TN, ’18)Jarrett was on fire all day and definitely proved that he was worthy of the TOP 12 shirt he received at the start of the camp from his dominance at VEGAS 29. His form is excellent and he is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. Great attitude and always rock steady with his snapping. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

The finals were between Jacob Potter (60.81 RSI), Jarrett Key (50.60 RSI), Clay James (45.21 RSI), Oscar Shadley (44.59 RSI), Cade DeGraw (38.96 RSI) and Jackson Worthen (34.09 RSI) can be seen below…

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter was the top overall seed in the finals and was about one inch away from winning the whole thing. He was was snapping with great confidence and he was beyond solid all day long in GA. Kennesaw St. is getting a very good Long Snapper and a great person.

David Demeter looked very good in GA. Kid is a pure athlete that will definitely be a factor on punt coverage in college. Very impressed with his footwork and overall drive. Form is solid and he snaps a quick ball. Good attitude on Demeter

Connor Finnicum did well in GA with his good size and solid form. Ball is accurate and he has the ability to snap in the .7s. Very good upside on size and consistency.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley was the overall speed champion of the camp and looked great throughout the day. Excellent frame and he is a true athlete. Ball is crisp and as pure as anyone in the country. He has no problem hitting sub .75 regularly and he is ready for college now.

Jack Hadley came down from NJ with his large, strong frame and was easily one of the most dominant Long Snappers in attendance. Ball is very smooth and on target. Extremely accurate Long Snapper with excellent upside and attitude.

Cade Long was on fire in GA and left absolutely no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Ball is clean and he has put on some good weight over the last couple of months. Easily one of the most consistent and accurate Long Snappers in his class.

Clay James came up from Florida and left no doubt he was on a mission to show his dominance. He was snapping with a purpose and I loved watching him all day. Body is thickening up very well and he was inches away from being crowned champion. Great attitude and always improving.

Bryce Bouwens was accurate and consistent with good upside in GA. Body is thick and he is strong. We he snaps with full power and gets his eyes all the way through, he can dominate.

Dillon Hayes is one of the most accurate Long Snappers in his class and can handle pressure as well as anyone else in the country. As he continues to gain strength, he will dominate his class.

Maddie Golden has a very solid quick snap motion with a powerful ball. Love to see focus on consistency of speed to improve his ranking. Works hard and he is always improving.

Evan Dvorchik has good size for a Long Snapper and he can snap the ball into the low .7s and even high .6s when he is on. The more athletic he becomes, the higher he will move up the rankings. Great attitude and he works yards.

Trey Corley showed great promise at the camp in GA. Body is excellent and the potential for Corley is off the charts. Speeding up his hands will make his ball quicker out of the gate and increase the overall speed of his ball.

Payton Dunagan has incredible flexibility and hovers right in the middle of the .7s. His athleticism is solid and he is always improving.

TJ Harvey came out and had a great day in GA. Ball is smooth and powerful. Very fast Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s. Excellent attitude.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Quentin Skinner

Quentin Skinner is a Long Snapper with great size and power that can hit in the .6s at 15 yards. He could snap in college right now with his frame and accuracy. Looking down his consistency and dominating a camp is the last step for Skinner.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has extremely minimal wasted movement. Lefty that is absolutely incredible when his spiral is on and tight.

JC Vega is a physically fit Long Snapper that can bring a ton of heat on the ball. Moves well on his feet and is quick with his hands. Very good potential on Vega

Christian Johnstone is a tall, athletic Long Snapper that is right on the cusp of greatness. He can hit in the .7s and looks to dominate VEGAS 30 this May. Keep a very close eye on Johnstone.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Georgia on April 30th. The Georgia Camp will wrap up the Spring regional camp schedule and lead right in to Vegas 30 on May 13-14. 

This was the seventh 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 are already posted HERE

Long Snappers from IL, IN, MO, MN, OH, IA, UT, MI, NC, SC, WI, NV, SD, and KY all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping. 

The overall camp champion was was James Rosenberry (OH, ’18). Rosenberry is a very consistent Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s and low .7s. Ball is smooth, crisp and very accurate. He handles pressure well and left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

You can see the finals between Matt Hembrough, Nate Durham, Shiloh Mast, James Rosenberry, Aidan Hall and Joe Halderon below…

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Matt Hembrough

Matt Hembrough was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was absolutely ripping the ball back to the punter and his body is starting to thicken up. Oklahoma State got a good one in Hembrough as he is definitely looking ready for the college level at this point.

Nate Durham was smooth, consistent and showed great accuracy throughout the day in IL. Frame is solid and he has great form. Absolutely love to watch Nate snap when he is putting full power on the ball.

Dylan Castro is beyond smooth and left no doubt he is ready for the college level with his snapping. He has a great attitude and uses his body well. Very good upside for Castro over the next couple of years.

Shiloh Mast did very well in IL and could have ended up winning the whole thing! Attitude is excellent and so is his form. Uses his whole body well and snaps a very smooth ball.

Mario Rodrigues has improved a ton and looks ready for the next level. Form is good and he does a great job of being consistent with each and every snap.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Roen McCullough

Roen McCullough won the speed competition and has really improved a ton with his consistency. Kid snaps with a great deal of power and accuracy. He looked very sharp throughout the day and left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country.

Ron Gaines is a massive human being that snaps a smooth ball and uses his body well. Ball hits the punter with good power and he has a solid spiral. Very good attitude and upside on Gaines.

Ross Hinders is a great Long Snapper with excellent form. He can hit in the .7s and he has solid accuracy. Quiet but does all of his talking with his snapping. He is going to do well in college.

Jesse Hooper came out from UT and did really well. He is snapping with a lot of confidence and the ball is flying well to the punter. He is a very thick and strong Long Snapper with a lot of upside.

Matt Tokos looked very sharp in IL and proved his trip from NV was worth it. He definitely impressed me throughout the day with his very quick hands and great attitude.

Michael Vinson is a large Long Snapper with a good frame and snap. Using his body well and can snap consistently in the mid .7s. Lot of upside on Vinson.

Jack Halper is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in the country. The kid can flat out fly down field and will easily be a factor on punt coverage. Consistent snapper in the mid to high .7s.

Zach Drevno is thick, strong and showed good promise. Being a bit quicker and making sure he is always going back will help in the long run. Very good attitude.

Charles DeRosier came out from CA and showed great promise. Consistent and smooth Long Snapper that hovers in the high .7s. Good attitude and potential

Turner Pallissard is an athletic Long Snapper with a good frame that can get the ball back to the punter well. Smooth on his feet and with his snapping.

Brendan Watson did well in Chicago. Very accurate Long Snapper that is always improving.

Drew Little showed great consistency in his snaps and excellent form. His ball really pops back to the punter and his use of his body is off the charts. Hard worker that is always working to get better.

Brad George was on fire and absolutely ripping the ball back to the punters. He had no problem hitting in the low .7s and even .6s at times. George was snapping the ball so hard it was almost shocking…in a good way. Keep an eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Jude Pedrozo was very solid all day in Chicago. Good frame, great attitude and excellent form means Jude is definitely one to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.

David O’Keefe had very quick hands and really got the ball out of the gate well. Thick frame and strong throughout. Very good upside on O’Keefe.

Mike Wojciechowski has great form and is snapping with some solid confidence. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he does. Over the next two years, he will make his high school coach very happy.

Nathan Tokar has improved his frame and his snaps are looking better as well. Uses his body really well and is snapping with confidence. I really liked what I saw out of Tokar in Chicago.

Thomas Peterson was consistent and smooth with his snaps all day in Chicago. Good upside.

Dylan McCardel was a stud on his feet and snapped very well all day. Ball is quick and his ball jumps out of the gate well. Love his demeanor and he is always improving.

Hayden Snyder was consistent with his speeds and showed solid accuracy. Very good upside.

Nolan Rossback had his best day at a Rubio Long Snapping camp. He looks to be growing like a weed and using his newer frame to get more power on the ball. As he continues to grow, he should continue to dominate. Great kid.

Patrick Szczesniak looked very solid in Chicago. He has a great frame and snaps a smooth and consistent ball. Excellent upside on Patrick.

Notables: Kuper Imrem, Ethan Warren, George Walsh

TOP 2020 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Jackson Worthen

Jackson Worthen left no doubt he was the best overall freshman Long Snapper in attendance. His form is great and he snaps with great force. You can hear his hands whipping back as he snaps the ball to the punter. He is going to be excellent if he keeps going at this pace.

Christo Kelly showed great upside and promise. Nice frame and he can get in the low .8s when he is on.

David Boan is a monster for his age and is headed towards greatness. Form is good and he has the potential to completely dominate his class over the next couple of years.

Michael Bastuga has good form, a great attitude and tons of upside. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will become over the next couple of years.

Jaden Mueller is a smooth Long Snapper with good upside. Good consistency of speed.

Notables: Nick Walker, Nick Love, Andrew Boan, Andrew Gorman
