Recap of the WA Spring Camp (3/18/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on March 18th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Long Snappers from seven states and two countries all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was overflowing with talent with many committed seniors and also tons of new Long Snappers.

The overall champions of the camp were Matt Tokos (speed) and Bryce Felt (overall). Felt came on very strong in the end and handled pressure like a true champion. His misses (not a lot of them, obviously) were all close to scoring and I am very impressed with how quickly he is improving! Felt represented the class of 2020 extremely well and I am proud how he handled himself coming up the Northwest from CA.

Tokos, Rubio & Felt

You can see the full finals video with Bryce Felt, Dalton Riggs, Jack Laurin, Tom Schnitzer, JJ Lindsay and Austin Duelman, below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Matt Tokos

Matt Tokos was the speed champion with a great pressure snap under .69! His ball is very tight and he snaps well on a cadence. Tokos has an excellent attitude and is always improving. He is going to make his college coach very happy for four to five years.

Kellen Dyer snaps a smooth and accurate ball with good consistency of his speed. He has the ability to get the ball back to the punter under .80 when he is really trusting his form and ripping the ball back to the punter. The more he improves his frame and athleticism, the better he will be in college.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

James Durr

James Durr was on fire all day in WA and seemed to get better as the day progressed. He was very consistently snapping in the high .8s and he moved well on his feet. Very intrigued to watch him under a massive amount of pressure at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Walker Harden has a great frame and his built extremely well. Snaps the ball hard and when the spiral is on, it is in the low .7s. Tremendous potential.

JJ Lindsay is a smooth lefty with an accurate ball. Really driving his chest through and making sure his spiral is locked down will help him a ton. Great kid.

Dalton Riggs is absolutely dripping with potential. Excellent frame and his upper body is extremely quick. If he can get his legs to match his upper body in quickness, he will end up putting a hole in the punter. When it clicks for this kid, he will dominate.

Josiah Hirsch is a big, thick Long Snapper with good form and a great personality. The harder he snaps, the better he does. Confidence is going to be huge for Josiah.

Alex Sheehan was impressive with good form and great speed. Locking down his spiral is going to be a massive key for him.

Notables: Austin Dueman, Gavin Gately, Neo Sather, Tyler Sato and Drew Maycumber

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Grayson Pibal

Grayson Pibal was extremely smooth and almost hypnotic with how smooth his snaps were throughout the whole day. Built very long with a frame that can easily put on 50 lbs over the next couple of years. The quicker he gets the ball out of the gate, the better he will be in the long run.

Cameron Landes is also another very long athlete that was smooth with his snaps and on his feet. The bigger he gets and the harder he snaps will easily make Landes one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Jack Laurin was smooth and was handling pressure very well. Made it deep into the finals and was close to winning it all. Like to see him focus on getting his butt up just a tad so his whole snapping motion is quicker.

Michael Tokos had some of the quickest hands at the camp. It was almost hard to time him during the speed competition. Like to see Tokos get his elbows more involved and really lock down the spiral.

Notables: Dakota Lepine, Tommy Sullivan

TOP 2021 and Beyond LONG SNAPPERS

Jesse Tomica

Jesse Tomica had a great attitude, moved well on his feet and was consistent with his snaps right around .85 at 15 yards. Good upside and I definitely like what I saw out of Tomica in WA.

Kayden Roxburgh showed good consistency and some solid form. Good attitude.

Carson Jensen had a great attitude and snapped with some good speed on the ball. Very good upside.

Jackson Plieth was impressive all day and is always improving.

TOP 12 Camp

In order to create the maximum amount of targeted exposure for my Long Snappers, The TOP 12 Camp was adjusted last year.

At each of my Vegas Events (January and May), I will select 20 athletes that dominated each camp and I feel could potentially be ready for the next level.

I will also have a maximum of FIVE Wild Card invites each that we can give throughout the year. My choice. Any camp. All on me and what I have seen and/or read about throughout the year.

Curious as to what I am looking for in a Long Snapper, click HERE

Now, here is where things REALLY get interesting. During the summer, at The TOP 12 camp  (the term “Event Elite” is officially retired), not only will the athletes have to perform on the field, they will have to perform off the field as well. Each athlete will undergo a full interview process along with several meetings so that we can really grasp who they are and how they will handle the life of a college and/or pro athlete.

When a Long Snapper is announced on the Rubio Long Snapping Twitter account, they will now be part of an exclusive group. They will now receive a black TOP 12 shirt at their regions Rubio Long Snapping spring camp which they can wear at that camp, VEGAS XXXII in May and definitely at the TOP 12 Camp in July. At the end of the TOP 12 camp, when we unveil the TOP 12, each one of those campers will receive the elusive yellow shirt AND a special hoodie designed by Adidas specifically for those Long Snappers.

Stay with me here, The TOP 12 will be chosen at the end of the camp. They will be selected at individual meetings in a war room at the end of camp while the other Long Snappers will be waiting and feeling the pressure, wondering “How many spots are left?”

They will be selected by their mental and physical ability over the three days of the camp.

Now, we will REALLY get to see who are The TOP 12 of Rubio Long Snapping!

HERE are the 45 invited last year and below are the TOP 12 Long Snappers that made the cut!

The Winner of VEGAS XXXI

Reporter Ritz

My 15 year old son, Alec (I call him Ritz) has expressed some interest in becoming a journalist. I told him to choose a topic and I would “publish” it for him. Here it is….

_______________________________

The date is January 14, 2018. Zach Edwards bends down to pick up his final ball of the evening and silence swarms the crowd of 300 teenagers gathered on that small field in Las Vegas, Nevada…

This is the finals of VEGAS XXXI.

Tied 7-7, four and a half star Rubio Long Snapper, Zach Edwards gets his feet set and looks at the target looming 15 yards away. Other Rubio long snappers are gathered on all sides, awaiting the snap. This is Zach’s moment.

He tucks his TOP 12 Camp t-shirt under his chin, ensuring that his vision will not be impaired and reaches out for the ball. This is it. All his hard work and preparation for the event have led up to this one moment. Perspiration builds on his head as he takes his final breath before the snap.

Without hesitation, his hands and fingers flash simultaneously with his legs and arms. Black rubber shoots out in all directions as his feet slide across the turf field. Head through, eyes up, wrists together. Just like Zach practiced. The ball whips off of his fingertips, slicing through the air like a 15 ounce leather spacecraft. It’s literally out of his hands now, nothing more he can do as the ball continues to fly through the air in a mind boggling fast 360 degree spiral. It inches closer and closer towards that coveted chain link target brought out specifically for the occasion. The oxygen is stole from the crowd. Time slows down. Rubio’s face becomes engulfed in anticipation as the ball finally reaches its target destination…

KA-PLING!!!

The Rubio stamped Adidas football comes to rest capitulated at the bottom of the 2 point target square.

One snap later with many unblinking eyes watching, his opponent Kameron Hawkins would miss the final snap of the event.

Zach Edwards has just won VEGAS XXXI!

Recap of the OH Fall Camp

Great group of instructors in Ohio!

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to OH on December 17th, 2017 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping has traveled the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following OH, Rubio Long Snapping will head to the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 12-14, 2018.

Long Snappers from IL, IA, NY, NJ, OH, NE, DE, SD, IN, MI, VA, WI, GA, TX, MS & PA all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the OH Camp…

Champion Joe Shimko

 

The overall winner of the camp was Joseph Shimko (NJ, ‘19). Shimko is one of the rare Long Snappers in he world that actually gets better over the day. When others are getting tired, Shimko gets more polished. He was actually the overall speed champion with a snap of a .65 and he also won the NJ summer and fall camps! To say Shimko is on a roll is a gross understatement. TONS of athleticism and his ball rips back to the punter. Kid just keeps on improving and improving.

The finals in Brad George (50.00), John Morton (45.88), Roen McCullough (43.66), Aidan Hall (43.37), Michael Vinson (42.67) and Joe Shimko (39.44). You can see the full finals video below…

TOP 2018 & JC LONG SNAPPERS

Roen McCullough

Roen was very solid in OH and left no doubt he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. Body is strong and he rips the ball back to the punter. When Roen reaches all the way through, he is as good as anyone in the country.

Michael Vinson has good size, moves well on his feet and snaps a nice, consistent ball in the mid .7s all day long. Ball is quick and hits in The Rubio Zone over and over. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for Vinson.

Evan Jennings is thick and powerful with great overall body snapping. Big fan of how Jennings was using all of his body in Ohio.

Levi McKinney is athletic and can snap a quick ball. Always improving and has a very good attitude.

Bailey Pickering is a JC Long Snapper that can hit in the high .7s and moved really well on his feet.

Notables: Corey Fichter, Freddy Barnes, Dylan Remington, Jase Whittner

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Joe Shimko

Joe Shimko was a machine in OH. Runs like the wind and snaps like a champion because that is what he is…..in NJ this summer, NJ this fall and OH in the fall. He is on fire and I don’t see him slowing down. The bigger and stronger he gets, the more dominate Shimko becomes.

JC Vega came up from GA and was one of the final three Long Snappers in the speed competition and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. His ball can hit in the low .6s! He is very athletic and could easily be a factor on any college punt team. Locking down his release point will be huge in increase his accuracy.

Samuel Wiesbrook is extremely long with a frame that could easily put on another fifty pounds over the next couple of years. Hovers from mid .6s to high .7s and locking down his consistent form will push him way over the edge. Samuel could easily be a TOP 12 member at VEGAS XXXI.

Donato Crisanti is another tall drink of water with massive upside. When he is on, Donato is very on and could be a TOP 12 member at VEGAS XXXI. Athletic and full of upside.

Jude Pedrozo is strong, has a good frame and is one of the most smooth Long Snappers in the country. Snapping with full power and strength is going to be huge for Jude.

John Morton made it to the finals once again and is proving time and time again that he is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country.

Brad George can snap a very quick ball with his solid form and tremendous attitude.

Sean Wracher is an athletic Long Snapper with great upside. Follows through well and has the ability to get the ball in the .7s when he really lets it go. Keep an eye on Wracher.

Thomas Peterson is big, smooth and extremely consistent. Hovered right at .75 throughout the whole day.

Brendan Beattie has a quick ball that jumps out of the gate well and is really accurate.

Aidan Hall is accurate, consistent and always improving.

Cayson Pfeiffer has a good frame and I like his attitude. Ball is powerful and his upside is solid.

Kuper Imrem was snapping with confidence and hitting in the mid to high .7s. Always improving.

Luke Hosford was impressive with his athleticism and consistency of speed. Locking down his spiral will be huge.

Notables: Nolan Rossback, Mike Wojciechowski, Collin Kinniry, Caiden Hahn

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Jake Foggia

Jake Foggia was the most consistent sophomore Long Snapper at the OH camp with his very fluid and smooth snaps.

Cooper Frazier is a massive sophomore from MS that got better as the day went on. If he can get his body straight when he is snapping back to the punter, his accuracy will be off the charts. Cooper was very impressive and definitely someone to keep an eye on at VEGAS XXXI.

Samuel Merryman was ne of the most athletic Long Snappers in OH and is absolutely dripping with potential. Leaning back is going to be massive for him in the future.

Notables: Jesse Smith and Mick Bastuga

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Zach Tylor

Zach Taylor came over from NJ and was easily the best freshman Long Snapper in attendance. He is accurate, has great form and can already snap sub .80 when he lets the ball fly.

Aaron Brannock had a great day in OH and was snapping a very consistent ball all day long. Great attitude and always improving.

Triston O’Brien is long, lean and has good upside. Locking down his hands on the ball pre-snap, will really increase his overall speed and accuracy.

Recap of the 2017 TX Fall Camp

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on November 12, 2017 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following TX, Rubio Long Snapping will head to NC on 11/19, GA on 12/3, AZ on 12/10, OH on 12/17 and then the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 1-15, 2018.

Long Snappers from TX, KS, LA, OK, CA, MO, MS & IL all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the TX Camp…

The overall winner of the camp was Luke Rizzo. Rizzo is a TOP 12 Camp invitee that left no doubt that invitation was well deserving. One of the hottest Long Snappers from the start of the camp to the finish. Form is good and he is snapping with great power. Even his misses were simply off by minimal inches. Size is good and he is moving well on his feet. Rizzo is getting better by the second and continues to learn how to dominate.

The finals in TX were between Luke Rizzo (48.1), John Farris (47.56), Dillon Hayes (42.67), Evan Gibson (34.21), Tre Rubio (33.78) and Kuper Imrem (32.53)

You can see the full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Karsten Battles

Karsten Battles was an absolute machine all day in TX. It is so fun to watch battles snap as he locks in and just crushes it….every single time. He has some of the quickest hands in the country and he can easily hit sub .75 on a very consistent basis. Body is looking solid and he is very determined. Just a flat out machine snapping the ball and is easily a scholarship Long Snapper.

Zach Edwards was the overall winner of the speed competition with snaps well under .70…yes, .70. His ball was picking up speed as the day progressed. One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes with his snapping.

Zach Edwards

Dillon Hayes continues to find his way into the finals of each camp with his great poise under pressure and his incredible consistency and accuracy.

Jax Wilson looks like a college tight end right now and has some of the most amazing upside I have seen in years from a Long Snapper. Body is great and his potential is off the charts. When he is on, there is no one better.

Evan Gibson is looking very smooth and strong. Body is powerful and he is really starting to snap with lots of confidence. Love his attitude.

Tre Rubio was snapping a great spiral all day and had many snaps sub .75. Tre was on fire all day and looked very impressive.

Chandler Moses was snapping with great confidence, a nice frame, and some good zip on the ball.

Cole Voyles has some increadile form and a frame that is able to put on some good weight over the next couple of years.

Notables: Austin Ortega, Grayson Broussard

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Luke Rizzo

Luke Rizzo was incredible all day long in TX. This is obvious as he was the overall winner of the whole camp and made it deep into the speed finals round as well. The more confidence he snaps with and the more he knows how great he truly is, the better he will be in the long run.

Braedy Wilson

Braedy Wilson is a tall drink water with upside that is off the charts. Ball is fast as he can easily be sub .75 when he lets the ball fly out of his hands. Frame is great with room to put on some good weight over the next year.

Caden Bolz came our from KS and was very solid. Ball was quick, body is thick and he has great power throughout.

Nathan Tokar is really starting to snap with some solid confidence and had no problem getting the ball under .80 on a regular basis. Every time I see Tokar he is looking more and more physically fit.

Chad Wolf is big, strong and overflowing potential. The upside on Wolf is off the charts. Good form and attitude.

Nick Stoia has good follow through and the ability to easily get the ball under .80. Smoothing out his form and becoming more and more consistent will move him way up the rankings.

David Medrano showed great upside and I love his attitude. Body is strong and he snaps a smooth ball back to the punter.

Kuper Imrem did well all day in TX and made it to the finals. The more confidence he snaps with, the better he does.

Nate McCormack did really well all day in TX. Very impressed with his attitude and how much he has improved over the last couple of months.

John Farris made it to the finals and was close to taking his talents deep into the finals. Always improving and one of the best attitudes of all the Long Snappers in the 2019 class.

Connor Able showed great upside in TX with snaps consisntely under. 82 and a nice, long frame.

Nate Adams might have the most potential of any 2021 Long Snapper in the country. Kid is massive and looks like a college tight end right now. If he works on his form, he could easily dominate his class at VEGAS XXXI.

The overall winner of the camp was Kameron Hawkins. Kam is a 2020 Long Snapper from CA that was just coming off a win in Seattle last week. Just like last week, Kameron was the overall champion as well as the speed champion. His confidence is building and he doesn’t look to be letting up on the gas. He left no doubt of his dominance in the finals by only hitting threes! Not to mention, every single three Kameron hit, was a pure “swish” going into the opening. It was incredible to watch as he only took three snaps total in the finals. Kameron is an absolute workhorse that continues to improve on a daily basis with his Long Snapping, attitude and athleticism. As for snapping the ball, Kameron is at the college level right now.

Recap of the 2017 WA Fall Camp

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on October 22, 2017 for the northwest’s fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will travel the country this fall instructing Long Snapper and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following WA, Rubio Long Snapping will head to CA on 10/29, TX on 11/12, NC on 11/19, GA on 12/3, AZ on 12/10, OH on 12/17 and then the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXI on January 1-15, 2018.

Long Snappers from WA, MN, CA, NV, OR, ID, CO & CAN all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the NJ Camp…

The overall winner of the camp was Kameron Hawkins. Kam is a 2020 Long Snapper from CA that was absolutely dominant all day long in Seattle. There is literally no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class in CA, and the entire country. Kam actually was the speed and RSI champ of the camp. This definitely does not happen often but was well deserved with Kam with his excellent accuracy and speeds that were sub .7 when it mattered most. 

Kameron is an absolute workhorse that continues to improve on a daily basis with his Long Snapping, attitude and athleticism. Very impressed with this kid’s drive and never slow down attitude.

The finals in WA were between Kameron Hawkins (CA, 2020), Axel Raarup (MN, 2018), Kellen Dyer (ID, 2018), Karl Von Einsiedel (Canada, 2020), JJ Lindsay (CA, 2019) and Ben Schumock (WA, 2020).

You can see the full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Matt Tokos was an absolute machine all day in WA. He could easily have one of the tightest spirals in the country as his ball almost sticks to your hands when it hits. His snaps are quick with times easily in the .7s and his attitude is excellent. He is going to make any coach he plays for extremely happy on and off the field.

Kellen Dyer was snapping a very smooth and accurate ball that took him all the way to the finals and was about 3 inches from winning the whole camp! Dyer’s attitude is great and he works hard. The more he increases his overall athleticism and strength, the better he will be in the long run.

Axel Raarup came out on a solo trip all the way from MN and definitely did not waste the trip. Kid is VERY athletic and can rip the ball back to the punter with consistent sub .80 times. Fun to watch this kid move and snap. Great upside.

Morgan White came all the way from NV and left no doubt he has all of the tools to be a great one for his class. Thick and strong with tons of power that just needs to be pushed in the right direction.

Anthony Laveroni is 2017 Long Snapper that came out to get finely tuned to walk on to a major university this spring and he showed me that he can definitely do it. Kid has great size and has the ability to get the ball sub .80. Increasing his athleticism and confidence will be huge for Anthony.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
JJ Lindsay came to the northwest from Nor Cal and represented the Sunshine state very well. This left has great form and moved really well side to side. The more he snaps with pure confidence and trusts his great form, the more dominant he will be in his class. Great kid.

James Durr is looking thick and gaining good strength throughout his entire body. Ball can dip under .80 and the more he can do that consistently, the higher up the rankings he will go. Love his attitude.

Josiah Hirsch is a thick and powerful Long Snapper that could easily be a top 10 Long Snapper in his class when he realizes just how powerful and strong he truly is.

Alex Sheehan moved well side to side on his feet and was snapping the ball with tons of force all day. If he can control the spiral and lock down his accuracy, he will dominate VEGAS XXXI. I absolutely love the oomph he puts on each and every single snap.

Gavin Gately is dripping with potential. Big, tall man with an excellent frame that a college strength coach is going to manipulate into a monster. His hands are really quick.

Neo Sather is extremely athletic and has very quick hands. Locking down his spiral and increasing the overall speed of the ball is gong to be huge.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Michael Tokos was impressive to me, and I think himself as well, all day in the northwest. It was funny to watch Tokos become more and more surprised each time he would hear his snap times as if to say “WOW! Am I really snapping the ball that fast?!?!?!?” Yes, you are Tokos and keep up the good work.

Karl von Einseidel was one of the more athletic Long Snappers in his class (and at the camp for that matter). Raw Long Snapper that crushed all the agility tests and has great upside.

Cameron Landes showed me some great footwork and that he should easily be a factor on the punt coverage team. The more he can get his upper body to get through and not up first, the faster his ball will be in the long run. Great attitude.

Ben Schumock had very quick hands and tons of upside. His snaps can easily hit sub .80 and his potential is incredible. Smoothing out his overall snapping motion is going to be huge as we head to VEGAS XXXI.

Grayson Pibal is sitting on a mountain of potential. One of the smoothest Long Snappers out there and the more he can snap with just raw power, the better he will be.

Jack Laurin was great with his athleticism and his attitude. Locking down his spiral and continuing to put on size will increase his overall snap speeds.

Notables: Joel Antush, Colin Dolynski, Dakota Lepine, Tommy Sullivan

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS and BEYOND
Alec Eckert showed great promise with his very long frame. Confidence is going to be huge for Alec has he continues to progress. When he allows his strong body to just rip the ball back to the punter, he can easily get bus .80 snap speeds at 15 yards. The less Alec thinks, the better he will do in the long run. Great upside and he can be as good as he wants to be.

Devin Claridge is an intense Long Snapper with good power and balance. His upside is very solid.

Anna DeCaprio (2022) has improved a great deal over the past year as she is now very close to using all of her lower half and is beginning to trust her form more and more.

Jackson Plieth (2022) impressed me with his overall attitude and athleticism for his age.

Blake Gorski (2022) shows great promise and excellent improvement over the past couple of months.

Rubio Long Snapping Year Round Package

Rubio Long Snapping has always been about the athletes above everything else, the unmistakable #1 priority.  Our mission is to deliver the very best technical training to fuel growth and development as a Long Snapper, and secondly to provide and the best possible exposure to NCAA and NFL Football Coaches and Staffs.

It is a rather simple formula.  We provide the framework for athletes to grow their Long Snapping skill through drills and exercises that translate into technique, accuracy, and speed over time.  The more frequently we have the opportunity to work with Long Snappers at Regional and National Camps the faster we see the development typically.  However merely attending camps alone will not work, it is the dedication to hard work in between camps that will pay the greatest dividend.  As the athlete grows and develops, Rubio Long Snapping creates awareness and exposure to NCAA and NFL  Coaches through our personal relationships, our website, and via Social Media better than any other Long Snapping instructor.  Camp attendance is the basis for us being able to document growth and development through video, competition results, and rank athletes within each class.  Rankings are based solely on how the athletes at every camp perform and compete with their peers, those who attend more frequently give themselves the most chances succeed and thereby climb the rankings.

That being said, Rubio Long Snapping fully understands the enormous commitment that it takes to get your athlete to Regional and National Camps.  It is a huge commitment and investment of time and money.  And while Rubio Long Snapping is in fact a business, it has always been about the athletes first and foremost.  So in an attempt to help provide athletes and their families with the greatest possible access to Regional and National Events we would like to announce the 2017 / 2018 Rubio Long Snapping All Access Program.

Starting with our 2017 Fall Camp Schedule, our Rubio Long Snapping Families will be able to pay one flat cost per year for their athletes to attend all of the Regional and National Camps they would like for one fee.  This new program will cover Fall, Spring, and Summer Camps (in any city / state) and both the January and May Las Vegas Events.  The Rubio Long Snapping All Access Program will start with the Fall 2017 Camps and run through the Summer 2018 Camps.  The only camps this program will not include are The Top 12 Camp and the Underclassmen Invitational, those camps will be separate costs to attend.  This program is a direct result of feedback from our Rubio Long Snapping Families, and we are thrilled to offer it.  We hope it is an accurate reflection of how we feel about having most opportunities to develop Long Snappers in the coming year.

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

Speed Champion, Jac Casasante and Overall Champion, Max Nieland 

The overall winner of the camp was Max Nieland (CA, ’18). Max was solid all day long in CA and really caught fire late in the day. On the Target, in the finals, he only missed a couple of times and his misses were by inches. His accuracy is excellent, consistency is off the charts and he has an excellent attitude. Max does an excellent job of not remaining stagnant and is always improving. Very proud of Max and how far he has come with his Long Snapping.

The finals in CA were between Peter Bowden (56.76), JJ Lindsay (55.26), Matt Tokos (46.15), Max Nieland (45.32), Cruz Rubio (43.42) and Simon Samarzich (41.67). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
– Jac Casasante was the speed champion of the day with 15 yard snaps in the low .6s! His attitude is incredible, he can run with the best of them and his ball is obviously at college speeds right now. He is going to be a great pick up for a college coach.
– Matt Tokos had a great day making it into the finals of the speed and accuracy competitions. Excellent attitude and one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. He is going to be a great asset to a coach on and off the field.
– Gabriel Cervantes is a long, pure athlete that is improving week to week. He is a coachable Long Snapper with excellent upside and a frame that can easily put on another forty pounds throughout college.
– Hunter Becker is a smart Long Snapper that is thick, strong and has great form. High academics make him a big pickup for the right college. Always improving.
– Morgan White has great power and the ability to really rip the ball back to the punter. I was impressed with his size and upside. Locking down the spiral and consistency will be huge for him.
– Chance Nelson is a great JC Long Snapper that runs like the wind and has solid accuracy with every ball he snaps to the punter.
– Robert Fiene is a strong and athletic Long Snapper with great upper body follow through.
Notables: Michel Heller, Jack Hughes, Jacob Mauch, Dante Mirogilo, Axel Raarup, Wyatt Rech, Mason Somerman, Tanner Williams

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
– Simon Samarzich is a pure athlete with great form and excellent consistency. Made it into the finals, again, and showed great snaps throughout the day. Smooth and accurate with an excellent attitude.
– Luke Rizzo looked very powerful and was snapping the ball with some solid confidence all day. When he snaps with absolute full power, he is easily one of the best in his class.
– JJ Lindsay looked extremely smooth throughout the day and left no doubt he has been working hard and smart the past couple of months. Keep a close eye on him this fall and at VEGAS XXXI.
– Jack Landherr has the ability to be one of the best Long Snappers in his class. Good frame that is strong and still has room to put on some good size over the next two years of high school.
– Dean Lau is one the purest athletes in his class. He has put on some good size and has quick hands to get the ball back to the punter with good pop.
– Peter Bowden had the top RSI of the camp and was impressive in CA. Built very long with room to put on some good weight. Form is good and he can get the ball ball back in the high .7s to low .8s. Once he makes sure he is really getting his upper body all the way through and not turning so quickly after the snap, he will dominate his class. Keep an eye on Bowden.
– Kyler Greenway looked solid with good form and consistency. Listens well and is very coachable. Good upside on Kyler.
Notables: Josiah Hirsch, Nathan Hedberg, Brian Rea, Jesse Vasquez, Nick Wade

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
– Kameron Hawkins continues on his path to greatness. Form is excellent, ball is clean and his hands are quick. He is now able to get the ball, consistently, under .78 and he shows no signs of letting his foot off the gas. Great Long Snapper on and off the field.
– Cruz Rubio is a big and powerful Long Snapper that can already get the ball in the .7s. Moves well on his feet and has good form. Making sure he is leaning back, following through with his fingers and keeping up with his athleticism could push him to the top of his class.
– Aaron Estrada looked very solid athletically and with his snapping. His hands are quick and that really helps get the ball out of the gate well. Estrada is a very hard working Long Snapper that will be an asset to any team he is on.
– Michael Munoz handles pressure really well and has all of the tools to be a great one. Built with good length and a smooth snap, the sky is the limit for Munoz.
– Jaden Sanchez is beyond strong and built for his age. Moves well on his feet and has one of the most powerful balls in his class. Locking down the spiral is going to be massive for Sanchez moving up the rankings.
– Cody White had a great day in CA. I thought he looked solid at the Underclassmen Invitational and he went beyond that on Sunday. Really impressed with the direction “Drago” is headed.
– Michael Tokos is beyond consistent and might be the overall quickest Long Snapper his class. I love his attitude and how the ball gets out of the gate. Getting fully set and putting on some size will be huge for Tokos.
– Tony Villarreal looked beyond smooth in CA. His ball just flies out of his hands and appears in the punters hand. I love to watch him snap and I know his punter will love catching snaps from him.
Notables: Brendan Duffy, Davis Salom, Troy Sicaeros

TOP 2021 & 2022 LONG SNAPPERS

Recap of the Underclassmen Invitational

On July 20-21, Rubio Long Snapping held it’s annual Underclassmen Invitational. This camp has quickly grown to be a favorite amongst Long Snappers, the parents and the staff of Rubio Long Snapping. It is basically like a mini TOP 12 Camp with Long Snappers from the classes of 2019-2022.

Day 1 was filled with instruction, lively competitions, social media seminar by Terry Crosby (always a good time), a game show (Long Snappers dominated!) and a catered pasta dinner for all participants and their families. One of the great things about this camp is some of the meetings are done without the other party. For instance, when Terry Crosby was speaking to the parents, the specialists were in another area learning about nutrition and lifting. Then, on the flip side, when Crosby was speaking to the kids, the parents were not in the room. This definitely leads to some great moments within the Rubio Long Snapping family.

Day 2 was all about competition and one-on-one instruction. When the Long Snappers weren’t going head to head on The Rubio Target, they, and their parents, were brought over to work with Rubio in a one-on-one setting. Time and time again, you could hear “Ahhhhhh!” “Ohhhhhhhhh” “I knew there was something off, thanks for clearing it up Rubio!” It was a great four hours for all involved and everyone got better!

The overall winner was Luke Payne (2019, GA). Luke was hot off a win at the Rubio Long Snapping GA Summer Camp and he left no doubt he is headed for greatness. His ball is beyond accurate, he has good consistency and the kid handles pressure like a true champion. If any Long Snapper is going against Luke and he scores first, the game is usually over.

Free Fall Camp Contest!

As always, Rubio Long Snapping is offering up a way to attend a Rubio Long Snapping camp in the fall for free! I usually end up having one winner but this time I am going to do something different….I am going to have one possible winner from each location Rubio Long Snapping is running a camp. Therefore, there could be possibly EIGHT winners announced when the contest is over!!! So, if you say live in Idaho and win, you will earn a free admission to the WA camp on October 22nd. If you live in Florida and win, you will earn a free admission to the GA camp on December 3rd.

If you have been on the line at all lately, you have seen the Drive By Dunk Challenge. Some are incredible and some don’t end up so well….

Bottom line, here is the contest…

WHO: Any Long Snapper from 6th grade to 2nd year of JC that wants to earn a free admission to a Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp!

WHAT: The Long Snapper must film themselves doing FIVE random snaps in random locations with a lot of pressure on themselves. The better the snap with the more hoopla around it (think massive crowd), the more chance you have of winning. The Long Snapper can’t break any laws while doing this and safety must be the priority. I am thinking more like snapping at a food court in a mall and not on top of a moving car. I will take less than five entries but I will not take more than five. You can only enter one total video to me, so make sure all snaps are on that video. Any entries that break any laws or are deemed unsafe by the Rubio Long Snapping staff, will not be accepted.

WHEN: The Long Snapper must have the five videos submitted on YouTube with the title, Rubio Long Snapping 2017 #DriveBySnapping Contest. That video must be sent to my email, Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com, by no later than August 26th at noon pst. Any entries after that, will be not be accepted.

Recap of the TOP 12 Camp

The Rubio Long Snapping TOP 12 Camp was on July 17-19, 2017 and featured, quite possibly, the most talented group of Long Snappers to ever come through the system. There was Long Snappers committed to school such as Virginia Tech, Colorado State, Air Force along with offers from Oregon, Marshall, you know what, it might be easier just to show you….

This TOP 12 camp was different from years past as 20 Long Snappers were chosen from the January Vegas Event, 20 were chosen from the May Vegas Event along with five wild cards. All of these terrific Long Snappers competed against one another to see who the actual TOP 12 would be on Wednesday. As if that wasn’t enough pressure, the whole thing was going to be filmed for a new web series called the TOP 12 Series!

So, we still had the annual belly flop contest with the kickers (I am choosing not to think about the outcome so we will move past it) and the night out on the town with the kids to see how they handle themselves socially. That was the same, but the exit interviews were different where we actually met with each Long Snapper and let them know right then and there if they had earned the TOP 12 gold shirt! You want to talk about stressful for them and myself.

If you are looking to see all of the photos put up by Nick Monaghan, I highly recommend checking out his website. He is the best in the business and took thousands of photos over the three day span to provide the most exposure for the Long Snappers.

Great shot by Nick Monaghan in the War Room during one of the exit interviews.

After all of the snapping, dinner, socializing, and interviews, the TOP 12 Long Snappers in the country were (in alphabetical order)…

Karsten Battles
Cade Long
Antonio Ortiz
Marco Ortiz
Roen McCullough
Kyle Petrucci
Gabriel Pugh
John Raines
Ross Reiter
Simon Samarzich
Oscar Shadley
Quentin Skinner

The overall camp champion was Oscar Shadley. The Virginia Tech commit left no doubt he was the top overall Long Snapper of the group with incredible athleticism. His ball seemed to get quicker and more powerful as the days progressed. No matter what was thrown at him, Shadley dominated.

Here is a detailed recap of each TOP 12 Long Snapper followed by a quick write up on all that attended as they are all deserving of recognition.

Karsten Battles – Thick, strong and powerful Long Snapper that locks in and rarely misses. Very detail oriented Long Snapper that is like a machine out on the field. He already holds several offers and will make any college coach happy over the next couple years.

Cade Long is one of the most efficient Long Snappers in the country. Rarely, and I mean very rarely, has a bad ball. Accuracy and consistency are his strengths. Body is getting bigger and stronger. Overall, a tremendous Long Snapper.

Antonio Ortiz – might have the most potential of any Long Snapper that has ever gone through Rubio Long Snapping. Antonio has an absolute tremendous frame and runs like wind. Type of Long Snapper that could play for the next twenty years. If he puts his mind to it, he could be the best to come out of Rubio Long Snapping.

Marco Ortiz – simply duplicate what I said for Antonio. Marco is a little less polished that Antonio at this point but still has just as much upside. Both are full easy scholarship picks and any coach would be lucky to have them.

Roen McCullough – Strong and powerful Long Snapper that can snap a ball right through the punter. Kid is a machine on the field and works like a horse to be the best. Handing pressure really well and love is attitude.

Kyle Petrucci – He continues to improve athletically and with his snapping. Still has some slight issues with getting his upper body all the way through but his overall size is so dominant, that it can be overlooked. When he really drives his upper body through, he can put the ball in the low .7s and right in The Rubio Zone. Smart Long Snapper with tons of upside.

Gabriel Pugh – a 2019 Long Snapper that has one of the most powerful snaps I have ever witnessed. His ball almost feels like a wet, heavy ball about to break your hands. Built like a college tight end and he still has two years left of high school. Upside for him is off the charts and I love his attitude.

John Raines – Quick hands and a very crisp ball that really flies out of his hands. Recent Ole Miss commit never stops improving and is always right in the finals but no one really ever notices. Excellent Long Snapper that is truly dedicated to his craft.

Ross Reiter – Great personality along with being a tremendous Long Snapper makes Reiter one of the best recruits of his class. Ball is beyond tight and always right on target. Body is improving by the second and he has one of the most crisp and precise balls you will ever encounter.

Simon Samarzich – extremely athletic 2019 Long Snapper that snaps a smooth and consistent ball. The more he works on his craft, the better he will be. Coming out of his shell with his snapping and his personality is making Simon a major recruit over the next couple of years.

Oscar Shadley – He left literally no doubt he is the top Long Snapper in the country. Incredibly impressed with how well he handles adversity and just gets better with more pressure. Ball is beyond fast with snap speeds under .65 and he just gets more accurate with the more snaps he takes.

Quentin Skinner – 2019 Long Snapper that could end up being the best to roll through Rubio Long Snapping. Extremely strong athlete that looks like a college linebacker and is as strong as one (already can bench 400 lbs!). I have watched Mad Dog snap in tons of camps and he was the best I have seen him this good. Just flat out awesome!

Rest of the best in alphabetical order…..

Ryan Aguilar – Athletic with tons of potential. Smoothing out the consistency will make him a sure fire recruit.

Matt Aloni – Thick bodied and smooth Long Snapper that can be the best in the upper east coast….easily.

Brock Assel – Air Force commit with tons of power and a solid attitude. Locking down his accuracy puts him at the top.

Brenden Bentley – Snapped a powerful ball with good consistency. Locking down his spiral and quickness will push him up the ladder.

Jac Casasante – One of the fastest Long Snappers with his ball and feet in the country.

Gabriel Cervantes – Long, pure athlete with tons of upside. Smoothing it all out will get him to the top.

AJ Covan – He might be the most accurate Long Snapper to ever go through Rubio Long Snapping. Made it to the finals and literally just doesn’t miss The Rubio Zone. If you are looking for pure accuracy, there is literally no one better.

Zach Drevno – Thick and strong Long Snapper that has improved a ton over the past year. Continuing to lead with his elbows with create more overall speed on the ball. Tremendous attitude.

Payton Dunagan – Incredibly flexible Long Snapper that hands the ball to the punter. Locking down his spiral will be huge for Payton.

Evan Dvorchik – Great competitor with a solid snap. The tighter his body gets and more athletic he becomes, the more of a full fledged recruit he becomes.

Zach Edwards – One of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. Smooth and consistent. The more confidence he gets, the more dominant he becomes.

Ron Gaines – Massive Long Snapper with a smooth ball that has solid accuracy and consistency . Snapping with full power and increasing his athleticism makes him top dog.

Evan Gibson – He is improving drastically and is already one of the top Long Snappers in his class. More overall speed pushes him to the top.

Maddie Golden – incredible Long Snapper that can rip the ball back to the punter. Also overflowing with an amazing personality. Easily the top of Long Snapper that could dominate on and off the field.

Kameron Hawkins – Late invite to the TOP 12 Camp and it was well deserved. Only a 2020 Long Snapper but already is snapping at D1 speeds and accuracy. Athleticism and strength will be huge. No one works harder and smarter.

Dillon Hayes – Incredibly accurate and consistent Long Snapper. Locking down his spiral is the key to greatness.

Hayden Hood – Athletic Long Snapper with massive upside. Getting bigger and more powerful is going to be key for Hood.

Noah Howell – Might be the most improved Long Snapper in his class over the past year. Built thick and strong. Great upside.

Clay James – Recent University of Miami commit is beyond accurate and consistent with his snaps. Strength with his snaps and consistency of speed will be huge for Clay.

Jarrett Key – Looked solid and was impressive. Overall strength is going to be huge for Key advancing up the rankings.

Drew Little – Easily one of the top 2019 Long Snappers in his class. Strong with a very a efficient snap. If his spiral was completely locked down, he would have had a TOP 12 spot.

Chance Nelson – Massive upside on this Long Snapper that is a tremendous JC athlete. Kid flies down the field and is a massive factor on punt coverage. Making sure his ball is spiraling is the key.

Jude Pedrozo – Thick and strong Long Snapper that will be as good as he wants to be. Confidence with his snapping will be huge. Incredible personality that can dominate a team.

Randen Plattner – One of the most impressive Long Snappers at the camp and right on the cusp of making the TOP 12. Consistency of speed is the key for Randen.

Austin Riggs – Long Snapper that rises to the level of competition around him. Great personality that is going to be successful in whatever he chooses to do.

Luke Rizzo – Overall dedication is going to be key Rizzo.

Michael Vinson – Really impressed with Vinson’s attitude and snaps. Making sure his spiral is fully locked down and continuing to build on his strength will be key.

Nathan Weneta – athletic Long Snapper that was very close to making the TOP 12. Increasing his overall strength and confidence will be huge for him as we go through the next couple of years.

Jax Wilson – Incredible upside and he could easily end up being one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Smoothing out his snapping motion will be huge for Jax.

Jacob Zuhr – 2020 Long Snapper that left no doubt he is the best in his class with his powerful snaps that can easily hit sub .70 and he is only going to be a sophomore!!!

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).

For the full finals video, please go HERE

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!
