Underclassmen Invite Event – RECAP

Over 50 Long Snappers from around the country came out the Underclassmen Invite Event in Los Angeles, CA for the weekend of June 29-30. This camp is special, not simply for it being the top 2017, 2016 and 2015 Long Snappers in the country, but also because it completely allows the parents/guardians to become a member of it as well. Over half of the weekend is spent in the classroom learning about recruiting from a parent’s point of view, fitness/nutrition, NCSA, Herbalife and social media. To say the weekend is packed with information would be a massive understatement. Not only did these Long Snappers gain knowledge on the field and in the classroom, they also gained many lifelong friends. The camaraderie of the group was overwhelming.

Terry Thompson was exceptional in guiding the parents through the recruiting process

The weekend started off with a phenomenal classroom session led by Rich Goudis and Terry Thompson advising the parents about the recruiting process through a parent’s eyes. Rich and Terry have had a kicker and Long Snapper, respectively, go through the Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping process and were able to guide the parents in the process. I have heard nothing but good things about their speeches/q&a session from parents that were in the room.

All of the specialists were in a separate room with myself and Chris Sailer running over the details off the weekend and getting them ready for greatness…physically and mentally.

After the morning session, the specialists were led on the field to gain the best instruction possible in two sessions. The Long Snappers were attentive, listened well and all improved. The first day was a massive success.

Terry Crosby did a great job in leading the social media seminar.

The second day started off with Chris Sailer and myself going through a year by year recruiting breakdown in high school for parents and specialists. After this, an amazing social media seminar was led by Terry Crosby who led the audience through a journey of ups and downs in social media with MANY solid examples. After this segment, there is no excuse for all parties knowing the ins and outs of social media.

Hook

Van Hook was outstanding when he spoke to the parents and Long Snappers.

Following Terry Crosby was Brian Van Hook talking to the parents and Long Snappers about lifting, nutrition and stretching. Van Hook was overflowing with information and the audience couldn’t ask questions fast enough. This entire segment, like the others, was fantastic for all involved.

The final two classroom sessions were led by Herbalife and NCSA. Two dynamic speakers were brought in and they did not disappoint.

After lunch, all Long Snappers were on the field for competition and their YouTube videos (which are already uploaded). The Long Snappers did not disappoint. The overall winner of the camp was Garrett Wilson (2015, NC). Garrett is built very long and has quick hands. Sky is the limit for him as he has a huge upside. Handles pressure well and was great all weekend.

Some other top Long Snappers were….

2017/2016

Mitch Hall – (2017) Long Snapper has tremendous form is growing rapidly and is showing no signs of slowing down.

John Aloma – (2016) Long Snapper left no doubt he is one of the best in the country. He has exceptional form and snaps a very quick ball for his age.

Travis Arroyo – (2016) Massive Long Snapper with great form and attitude. Keep an eye on him over the next three years…and beyond.

Josh Brady – (2016) Showed a big upside and listens well. VERY quick learner.

Damon Johnson – (2016) Improving by the second and is extremely close to having it all click. When it does, this will be bad news for other Long Snappers in his class. Consistency will be key.

Conner Kirkegaard – (2016) Great speed and power from this Long Snapper. Very close to putting it all together.

Scott Meyer – (2016) Was very impressive with his size and smoothness of his snap. Big upside.

Donald Reiter – (2016) Has a great attitude, a tight spiral and is extremely accurate. Love the direction he is headed, physically and mentally.

John Shannon – (2016) Did as expected all weekend: GREAT. Built well and is solid with his form. Some slight tweaks will make him one of the greats.

2015

Jeremy Ashworth – Did a tremendous job all weekend. Great form and quick hands. Solid improvement.

Peter Comarato – When he is on, he is really on. Has the ability to easily snap a D1 ball at times.

Darren Diffee – Continues to impress me with his form and snapping. The more aggressive he gets, the better he will be with his snapping.

Tyler Douglas – Built like a senior and snaps like one at times. Consistency will be huge for him.

Wes Farnsworth – Long, athletic and massive upside. Watch him. Could be the dark horse of the group.

Ryan Farr – Was the best Long Snapper at the camp all weekend. Almost blasé when he snaps the ball. SKY IS THE LIMIT for Farr.

Matt Foley – Has improved a ton and is looking to make quite a name for himself.

Harrison Goebel – Massive frame, long arms, BIG upside. I really like what I see from him. Easy TOP 12 choice next year if he continues on this path.

Tyler Griffiths – Built well and snaps hard. Great direction and drive.

Ben Makowski – VERY impressed with Makowski all weekend. Works hard and smart….and it is obvious. Great Long Snapper and person.

Steven Nixon – Was snapping bullets all weekend. He just keeps getting better.

Jordan Ober – LONG athlete that will be top kid as he gets some size.

Ryan Simmons – Excellent form and attitude. Very accurate. The harder he snaps, the better he will be.

Garrett Stotts – Caught my eye all weekend with his size (thick and strong) and his snapping. Great attitude.

Austin Spence – Built very long. Massive upside.

Chase Urbach – Body is coming along nicely. Great form. The more confidence he has with his snapping, the better he will be.

Hunter Varga – Solid all weekend. He snaps hard and he is great…when he snaps hard.

Next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be CA on July 11, LSU on July 13, NC on July 15, GA on July 17, College Camp in CA on July 19-21, MA on July 25, IL on July 27 and CA Season Prep Camp on July 29th.

So, You Didn’t Make the Underclassmen Invite Event Cut….Now What?

As you know, Chris Sailer and I sent out the invites to the Underclassmen Invite Event in CA yesterday. Many woke up happy today, while many were left wondering what happened.

The world is not ending. If you did not get invited, you can still prove yourself to us either at the remaining spring camps (NC, GA and even CA Prep) and, more importantly, at the 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas on May 4-5, 2013. Sailer and I will be choosing a couple deserving athletes from these locations.

Therefore, if you feel that you are deserving of being invited, prove it to us in either NC, GA, CA and/or VEGAS!

Confused as to what this camp really is all about? Here you go:

Underclassmen Invite Event –
Date: June 29-30, 2013

Location: Sherman Oaks Notre Dame HS, CA

Description: This two day event is the first time that Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping will be completely gearing a camps towards the athletes and their parents/guardians.  This camp is meant to not only get the athletes headed in the right direction in the beginning of their high school careers, but also the parents as well.  It will provide information regarding nutrition, social media, recruiting, film, education and, of course, on field instruction. This event is just as much for the parents/guardians as it is the athletes!

There will be formal meetings/classroom sessions on individual topics such as….

1. Training (what level is right for the underclassmen athlete, how often, proper techniques)

2. Nutrition and Lifting (Good habits, bad habits)

3. Social Media (Setting up and using the proper social media outlets – this has become a must)

4. Filming (proper angles, techniques, times, set up)

5. Education (the importance of it, standards, year by year plan)

College recruiting for Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers is finally getting where it needs to be.  Scholarships are being offered earlier and earlier each year.  Early exposure is necessary these days.  The Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping Nike Underclassmen “Invite Only” Event is the perfect opportunity to make a name for yourself and solidify your national ranking at the perfect time.  The middle of the summer is now the time college coaches build their underclassmen lists.  You want to be on that list.  This camp will get you there.  It is also your first opportunity to prove that you are a “TOP 12” candidate in your class.  The camp is set for early July for a reason, college coaches asked us to do this.  They want the inside track early.  Don’t be surprised to see more and more underclassmen offered during the season in the near future.
