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.

Recap of the CA Spring Camp (3/5/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 5th, 2017 for their spring camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this spring instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the 2nd biggest event of the year (the largest is our January Vegas Event), VEGAS 30!

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

Simon Samarzich

Long Snappers from CA, NV, TX, IL, GA & UT all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Simon Samarzich (CA, ’19).  VEGAS 30! Samarzich has been on a tear ever since VEGAS XXIX in January where he was one of the most dominant Long Snappers in his class. You can tell he has been working hard and smart to fine tune his overall snapping motion. He is very athletic and extremely consistent with his snapping speed. Tons of upside on Simon as he just continues to improve.

You can see the full finals below….

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Noah Rodriguez-Trammell

Noah Rodriguez-Trammell looked his usual casual and comfortable self. He has great size, snaps a really smooth ball and is easily one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. Utah is getting a good one.

Harrison Hoffman was very solid all day and even got an offer from San Jose St. right after the camp. Easily the smoothest Long Snapper in CA and possibly the country. Never stops impressing me.

Chance Nelson is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in the country. Kid can fly downfield and is snapping a solid ball back to the punter.

Scott Stevens snaps a powerful ball and can pass an eyeball test from three miles away. Kid is massive and can play right now in college.

Notables: Johnny Fuentes and Nick Rovetti

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Brendan Bentley

Brendan Bentley was on fire all day in CA. Body is looking very solid and he is definitely moving better on his feet. Should be a flat out pure athlete by VEGAS 30. Love his attitude and work ethic.

Gabriel Cervantes continues to impress me with his overall frame and his snapping. Kid has grown about a foot in one year and he is using all of his body really well when he is snapping. Sky is the limit for this kid.

Kyle Petrucci was very impressive when he was snapping the ball hard back to the punter. Massive human being that is beginning to move better on his feet.

James Townsend is incredibly athletic and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. When he has everything click, his snaps are glorious.

Jesse Hooper was impressive in CA with his strong frame and powerful snaps.

Noah Howell is starting to really pick up steam and was looking solid in CA. Kid has great upside and starting to show off his true potential

Matt Tokos has a great personality and a smooth snap. He is the type of kid that a coach will love on and off the field.

Notables: Waide Brummer, Andrew Domingo, Max Nieland

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Ryan Aguilar

Ryan Aguilar had a very good day in CA. His snapping form is solid and he is able to handle pressure well. Consistency of his speed and just becoming more fluid throughout will really help him out at VEGAS 30.

Mason Napper came all the way out from GA and was impressive. I love his large from and he has great consistency with his snaps. He hovered right around .77 all day long. Excellent upside on Napper.

Nathan Weneta had a solid day in CA. Great from and moves extremely well on his feet. The less he thinks, the better he does. Upside is huge.

Dean Lau won the overall speed competition with a snap of a .72 at 15 yards! Not only can Lau snap the ball fast, the kid can run like the wind. Definite factor on punt coverage.

Brad George is athletic and snaps with rage…..and I love it. Great attitude on a terrific Long Snapper and person.

Dylan Black had a good day with snaps in the .7s. Consistency of speed and size will be huge for Dylan as we creep towards VEGAS 30.

Aidan Livingston impressed me with his work ethic, form and his accuracy. More power and confidence will push him well into the .7s by VEGAS 30.

Notables: JJ Lindsay, Jesse Vasquez, Reed Simmons, Derek Bedell

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….

Aaron Estrada

Aaron Estrada had a great day and made into the finals even though he had an ear infection and was sick. Starting form is good and he handles pressure well. Estrada got a little fatigued in the end but I have a feeling it was due to his body just saying “that’s enough” Very impressive day for Estrada.

Kameron Hawkins has, quite possibly, the best form in his class. He uses his body extremely well and can hit in the low .8s very consistently. Works hard and smart at all times.

Cruz Rubio is a thick, strong Long Snapper that moves well on his feet for his size. When Cruz gets set, he is the best in his class and can hit in the low .7s. Consistency of speed is going to be huge for him.

Jacob Garcia snaps a really nice tight spiral with good consistency. Need to see him get some more pressure on his left hand to center the ball more on the punter. Really good improvement over the past couple of months.

Recap of the CA Camp (3/6/16)

CA Camp2016Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 6th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from CA, AZ, NV, CO & UT to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was John Aloma! Aloma was on fire all day and Utah Ute commit was the first Long Snapper to ever win the accuracy and speed competition. His confidence is overflowing right now and his ball jumps back to the punter. He is looking ready for college now!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker was the best overall Long Snapper in attendance. His form is fantastic and his hands are rockets. ZERO wasted movement. Ball pops right out of the gate. UCLA got a great one.

  • Damon Johnson was outstanding all day. His ball seems to pick up speed on the way back to the punter. Very driven Long Snapper that does all of his speaking with his snaps. USC is lucky to get him

  • Riley Shackelford just committed to Portland State and you could see why they offered him a full ride. Kid is good, thick, strong and powerful with his snaps. Ball moves and his smooth.
  • Koby Walsh, who recently committed to UCLA as a preferred walk on, handled pressure very well and could have won the whole thing
  • Curtis Hernandez might just be the smoothest Long Snapper in the class of 2016. Definitely a sleeper of that class right now. Good upside.

Notables: Tim O’Donnel, Blake Gifford, James Kozachenko, Tanner Miller and Jacob Mimoun

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs was purely poetic in his snapping all day in CA. Ball is FAST and he has really improved on his accuracy and consistency. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be. 5 Stars by XXVIII should be his goal.

  • Devin Noth showed great athleticism and when he is on, he is REALLY on. Gaining some consistency will be huge before XXVIII.
  • Karson Thomas has great size and snaps the ball with power. Could be the sleeper of his class. Great upside.
  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel has tons of potential and is a flat out stud when snaps with full power.
  • Peter Snodgrass was impressive all day. Little tweaks will make him unstoppable. Great improvement of the last year.

Notables: Koltin Anderson, Gavin Cambell, Johnny Fuentes, Michael Lacilento, Caleb Lawver, Alex Michaelsen, Andrew Toothman

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. I timed him in the low .6s and he has an excellent spiral on his ball. Very catchable. If he can get his eyes through each time, have fun out there and get set, he will be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by XXVIII.

  • Brendan Bentley had waves of brilliance, when he is on…he is really on. Needs to focus heavily on making sure he gets both of his hands on the ball and THEN snaps.
  • Charles DeRosier was very consistent and has done a great job of improving over the years.
  • Kyle Petrucci has major upside and when he trusts his form, he will punish the punter.
  • Joseph Ramos is a massive man that will simply be as good as he wants to be. If he pushes himself, he could take the top spot in his class.

Notables: Rob Fiene, Jake Radwan, Ace Thayer, James Townsend, Jac Casasante, Gabriel Cervantes and Matt Garcia

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich had a great day in CA. He moves well on his feet and can snap the ball back in the .7s. If he pushes himself a bit more with his Long Snapping, he could be one of the best ever. Consistency will be key by XXVIII in May.

  • Nathan Weneta is right on the cusp of greatness. He is growing by the second and might be the fastest running Long Snapper in his class. Kid flies through agility drills. 

  • Ryan Aguilar has tons of upside and could be one of the greats
  • Dylan Black showed good poise and he has some solid speed on the ball.

Notables: Ryan Aguilar

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS:

I was equally impressed with three 8th grade Long Snappers in attendance: Aaron Estrada, Kameron Hawkins and AJ Laux. All are working with great form and are handling pressure well. Definitely keep an eye on these three over the next couple of years.
