Recap of the IL Spring Camp (4/7/18)

Guillemette, Rubio and Beattie

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on April 7th, 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 15 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 a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The Subway Alum and Rubio

For even more exposure, The Subway Alum prep recruiting site came out to get some interviews, take some photos and see all about the Rubio Long Snapping camp in IL.

The overall champions of the camp were Adam Guillemette (speed) and Brendan Beattie (overall). Beattie was the overall winner of the camp and did great all day. In the finals, he got very hot and only missed by inches a couple times. Ball is quick and he is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He absolutely crushed the agility section of the camp. The determination on this kid is off the charts. Really impressed with Beattie all day long in IL!

Recap of the IL Summer Camp (7/13/17)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on July 13th, 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!

Long Snappers from IL, NE, MS, IA, OH, KS, LA, IN, MO, KY, OR & WI 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 IL Camp, please go HERE

Overall Champion Jude Pedrozo and Speed Champion Pat Szczesniak

The overall champion of the camp was Jude Pedrozo. Jude is no stranger to winning at Rubio Long Snapping Camps as he is a former VEGAS winner and is always hovering around the finals. Very good body, great attitude and the ability to handle pressure really well make Jude one of the best in his class.

The finals were between Ross Hinders (60.87), Brendan Beattie (60.81), Charlie Gambs (45.83), Derek Hahn (28.57), Jude Pedrozo (24.42) & George Walsh (23.08). The full finals video below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Michael Vinson had a great day in IL. He has some good size, moves pretty darn well on his feet and can snap a nice ball that can hit in the low .7s. Listens well and is very coachable. Excellent attitude and Vinson is going to make his college coach really happy in the next couple of years.

Ross Hinders throws some severe heat and flies down the field. No doubt he will be a factor on the punt coverage team. Ball is really powerful and his upside is off the charts.

Derek Hahn out of Nebraska continues to improve greatly. He did really well in IL and made it all the way to the finals. He was only a couple of inches away from going very far into the finals brackets. Great attitude and always getting better.

Levi McKinney showed great athleticism and can hover in the .7s. Really like his upside and attitude.

Notables: Alex Rosenbaum, Ryan Jurczak, Nathan Slusarski

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo was excellent all day. His personality is off the charts and will be a leader on and off the field. Body is strong and he can snap a powerful ball. Accuracy and consistency are solid. Moves well on his feet. Great upside.

Patrick Szczesniak was only able to perform in half the camp due to prior commitment but left no doubt in half time time that he has the ability to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. He should be very focused on the TOP 12 Camp next year.

Brendan Beattie throws some severe heat and hovers in the low. 7s. His ball really powers back to the punter. He moves like a cheetah and will definitely be a factor on the punt coverage team.

Charlie Gambs made it deep into the final and had a great day in IL. Love his attitude and upside. Very smooth Long Snapper

Brad George is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. George snaps a really fast ball that is consistently in the mid to low .7s. Strong Long Snapper.

Samuel Wiesbrook is tall drink of water with excellent footwork and great upside. Ball is accurate and very consistent.

David O’Keefe showed tremendous upside and a smooth, consistent snap. The potential on this kid is off the charts.

Ethan Warren is strong, athletic and consistent with his snapping.

Michael Wojciechowski is very smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that will just get better and better as he gets bigger and stronger.

Nathan Tokar is really doing well in transforming his body and it is impacting his snapping in a great way.

Tyler Shaw was very impressive in IL was great snap speeds and a strong frame. Great upside.

Notables: George Walsh, Aidan Hall, Owen Hall, Collin Kinniry, Thomas Peterson, Joey Wilson

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Christo Kelly was excellent in IL. He has an excellent and athletic frame that moved very well all over the field. Ball is very quick for his age with times in the mid to low .7s. He has the ability to be one of the best in his class and should definitely focus on the TOP 12 Camp this January.

Jackson Worthen has some of the best form in the country and is close to greatness. Very excited to see him lock down his consistency and continuing to grow. Quiet and he listens really well.

Robert McCrory is a big framed Long Snapper with quick hands that can get the  ball in the low .8s.

Zachary Pitsenberger was impressive in the way he handled pressure and moved on his feet.

Jesse Smith was one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class with accurate snaps in the mid to low .8s.

Mick Bastuga has good form, a great attitude and a really smooth snap. Getting bigger and stronger along with really driving his upper body through will greatly increase his overall speed on the ball.

Notables: Jaden Mueller

TOP 2021 and BEYOND LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker is a 2021 Long Snapper that could probably start for most high school varsity teams right now. His ball is quick and he can get it into the .7s and he is just going into his freshman year!

Sam Long is big, strong and moved really well on his feet.

Top 2019 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2019 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Mike Zahara, WA
Super laid back kid. Didn’t get overly worked up about anything. Kept his cool and took instruction well. Thought it was a great sign from a kid of his age, not getting frazzled or frustrated. Really good form. Has long frame that can fill out nicely. Once he puts on some muscle and snaps hard, he will be great.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Simon Samarzich, CA
Simon had a good weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a true athlete that can be as good, or great, as he chooses to be with his Long Snapping. Once he fully dedicates himself to snapping, he could easily take the top spot and run with it. Accuracy is solid and his form is excellent for his age. Handles pressure well and could have actually won the whole thing in the desert. Like to see some more speed on the ball and that will come with consistency of snapping motion and size. Tremendous potential on Simon.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Hayden Hood, TX
Hood was excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and showed no mercy in TX. His confidence is starting to come along VERY nicely and I love it. Needs to make sure he is focus on gaining some size as that will assist him in blocking, getting down field and the overall speed of the ball. Kid is very good and just looks to get better. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and definitely at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Tyler Shaw, WI
Really liked what I saw out of Tyler at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He is a long athlete that is snapping with good power and confidence. Love to see him focus on leaning back more so he goes towards the punter and not up/forward. Falling forward will cause the ball to rise a bit and lose some accuracy. Kid has tremendous upside and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. WATCH HIM at VEGAS XXIX.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Caden Bolz, KS
Caden did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good power in his hands. Ball is quick and he has no problem hovering in the .8s at all times. By VEGAS XXIX, I want to make sure he is getting his eyes/head all the way through as this will greatly increase the overall speed of the ball AND the accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Jude Pedrozo, OH
Jude continues to impress me and didn’t let up at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and is snapping with a great deal of confidence. The upside on this kid is off the charts and he could make the TOP 12 in January if he continues to snap well. Overall accuracy and consistency is what I will be focused on seeing at VEGAS XXIX. He needs to know he can be one of the greats.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Austin Sullivan, NY
I liked what I saw out of Austin at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is very large Long Snapper for his age and has a good snapping motion. Very fluid Long Snapper. I like his form and I want him to trust it. If he was to trust his form and really let the ball fly, he will be able to get well under .90 by fall and definitely by XXIX in January. TONS OF POTENTIAL on Austin and when his legs get fully locked and timed up, he will dominate. LOVE HIS ATTITUDE.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Dominic Serapiglia, PA
Dominic did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good overall form. Ball is tight and he is showing some good accuracy. Like to see him increase the speed of his legs as they are just a tad behind his very quick hands. If he can get his timing locked down, he will be snapping under .77 by VEGAS XXIX…easily. Increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings as well. Good upside and always improving.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Quentin Skinner, GA
Skinner, AKA Mad Dog, had a solid weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He can EASILY snap a D1 ball right now when he is on. Every once in awhile, he will forget to follow through and the ball will die. If he can fix that, and I know he can, he can be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by next Vegas if not sooner. CONSISTENCY will be his biggest thing to focus on.

Joe Calcagno is a large Long Snapper with very good power and I love his form. Kid is right on the cusp of greatness. By January, he should have his body completely modified and ready to be a college Long Snapper.

Nate Durham is a VERY smooth and accurate Long Snapper that has great form. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he will be. Great kid.

Devin Noth is one of the most athletic and smart Long Snappers in his class. Listens really well and sucks up everything like a sponge. Getting fully down and set will make him one of the greats.

John Davis showed great things all day. Form is good and when he lets the ball fly, he is off the charts.

Matt Hembrough continues to grow with his body and his snapping. Confidence is going to be a huge factor as he moves towards the next level. Tons of potential.

Marshall Coluzzi is a very solid Long Snapper that is smooth, accurate and consistent. Moves well on his feet.

Cole Stewart has a good frame, a solid spiral and I love his accuracy. Adjusting the prior movement with his hands will help his timing a ton.

Chaz Satnan is a monster of a man that never stops improving. Starting to really hit stride and coming along nicely. Tons of upside.

Shiloh Mast has a great form, a solid body and tremendous attitude. Getting his butt down and snapping with full power will move him way up the charts.

KEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target and will always be announced when they are completed on social media. For summer camps, they have been promised by October 1, 2016 due to the amount of travel Rubio Long Snapping will have to do.
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and my several select member of my senior staff. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.
