Recap of the College Camp (July 16-17, 2016)

J-A-VstrsMany of the top college Long Snappers in the country came out to the incredible IMG ACADEMY in Bradenton, FL for two days of great instruction and camaraderie. This is always one of my favorite camps due to the high level of snapping and getting to see all of the Long Snapper’s personalities.

Josh Appel

Josh Appel

The top overall Long Snapper was Josh Appel of Indiana State. Appel is a back to back champion of this camp and is looking very solid heading into his senior year and future in the NFL. He has great size, an incredibly fast snap (not uncommon to see him in snap in the .6s and EVEN high .5s for 15 yards). Keep a close eye on Appel and you will not be disappointed.

Dillon Paprota

Dillon Paprota

The Accuracy Champion of the camp was Dillon Paprota of Bucknell. Paprota is just heading to Bucknell this fall but already looks like a seasoned vet. He has excellent size and strength with an extremely powerful snap. Accuracy is obviously off the charts and he has a great demeanor. Already expecting him to win this camp next year.

TOP LONG SNAPPERS

Drew Williams of South Carolina is going to be one of the top overall Long Snappers in college next year with his outstanding speed, solid accuracy and great athleticism for the Gamecocks.

Ryan Farr of the Florida Gators was on fire at the college camp. This left is very smooth and his accuracy is excellent. Only going into his second season with the Florida Gators and they look to be set for some time with his great snaps.

Tanner Carew of the Oregon Ducks was excellent all camps. Athletic Long Snapper with very good power and an incredibly smooth snap. Always fun to watch Carew snap and see his personality.

Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2015 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2015 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping National Event: VEGAS XXV!

Approximately 300 Long Snappers came in from nearly every state in the country and even Canada to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snappers. This was what you call a true national event to see how you really compare against the best in the world. As I stated before, there is nothing like Vegas and this one definitely did not disappoint. Testimonials are coming in non-stop regarding the weekend.  With the addition of an agility and tackling station, athleticism really played a role in the rankings.

Next ranking opportunity will be at any Rubio Long Snapping spring and summer camp.

This group was simply amazing with the level of talent they brought out to the field on both days. I could make this post 20 pages long talking about each and every one of them. Here are the best of the best….

  • Blake Ferguson was like a machine. Every thing you hear about him is true, plus more. He is that good.
  • Wesley Farnsworth is, easily, the most athletic Long Snapper in the country and I would put him up against any other high school player and still have my money on Farnsworth.
  • Liam McCullough has rockets for hands and catches fire.
  • AJ Carty will put a hole in his punter if he is not paying attention. Timed him several times in the .5s!
  • Tyler Griffiths has never once looked better after a camp. Kid is always improving.
  • Michael Poujol is, by far, the best available Long Snapper in the country.
  • Grant Gluhaich was simply amazing all weekend. Fire comes off his ball it is moving so quickly. Missed winning by two inches.
  • Jordan Ober handles pressure as well anyone in the country.
  • Hayden Sak is a massive man with tons of potential and talent.
  • Travis Baugus was on fire and snapping with great confidence. Passes an eyeball test quickly.
  • Drew McCracken is a pure athlete that rips the ball back to the punter.
  • Ryan Simmons was oozing confidence and he was outstanding all weekend.

Notables: Richard Wilcox, Brendan Lowery, Matt Foley, Chase Urbach, Owen Gilbert, Peter Comaroto, Ryan Parris, Harrison Hoffman, Logan Hamilton, Zach Wood, JT Bale, Kyle Varnell, Marco Cadavieco, Christian Samarzich, Landon Giammalva, Michael Soto, Wyatt Leath and Ryan Oak.

IL Summer Camp Recap

Long Snappers came out on July 13 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in IL from WI, KY, NE, MI, OH, IN, IA, CAMO, NC, RI, NJ, FL, CO and IL to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field, had a film and classroom session, a recruiting seminar and ended the day with a competition with Rubio present and running the camp. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

This was a camp where college Long Snappers could come out to get instruction and assist with the camp, and they did not disappoint. College Long Snappers that were present and got better were: Taybor Pepper of Michigan St, Nick Monaghan of Missouri, Seth Combs of Illinois St. Nate Hawkins of Navy, Reid Buckingham of Emporia St, Wyatt Pfeifer of Western Michigan, Josh Appel of Indiana St, John Wirtel of Kansas, Scott Daly of Notre Dame, Will Henrichs of Olivet Nazarene, Greg Hohenstein of Bowling Green St and Nathan Gibbs of Youngstown St.

CALCAGNO, JOEThe overall winner of the camp was Joe Calcagno (IL, ’17). Calcagno did very well throughout the entire day of camp. When he gets his body set up in the right direction and snaps the ball hard, he will be very hard to beat. Thick and strong Long Snapper with a lot of upside. Very good attitude and handles pressure well. Keep an eye out for Calcagno in the future.
