Form Letter to get Long Snappers on Post-Season Lists

End of the football season is upon many of us and with that, comes local papers, websites, leagues and states awards presented to all of the top athletes that played this season. I will highlight all because, as you know, the Long Snapper is not always on these lists. This, of course, is simply absurd to me since there is no way you can have a kicker and/or punter earn an award without having a Long Snapper also earn one. As we all know, the ball doesn’t magically appear to the punter and/or holder.

To clear this up and really push it this year, I am creating a template for you to send to your local TV station, newspaper, league, city, district, state officials, etc.

 

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is to request that a Long Snapper be added to the ___________________ (All-League, All-City, All-District, All-County, All-State, etc) List. I know the Long Snapper has been left off in the past, but that really shouldn’t be the case any longer. You see, if you are choosing a kicker and punter for this list, you definitely should have a Long Snapper on it as they start the play that the kicker and/or punter finish. It’s simple, without a Long Snapper, the kicker and/or punter simply can’t do their job. 

Not having a Long Snapper on your list would be just as bad as not having lineman. Think about it, no doubt you would have a QB or RB on your list but imagine how great they would be if they didn’t have a great line? They would have some major issues throwing and/or running the ball. The lineman do a great deal for the QB and/or the RB. They should get noticed on your list, and they do. Now, it is time to notice the Long Snapper, the person that starts the game winning kick or game changing punt. It is time.

I know an argument can be “Oh, but we really don’t know what to look for in a Long Snapper to actually judge them for our lists.” Good point but I am sure you get many points of views from high school coaches that can help mold your decision. Also, there is a company that travels the country that works just with Long Snappers that would be more than happy to help in order to get the Long Snappers the recognition they deserve. Rubio Long Snapping is this company. They see more Long Snappers than anyone in the country and have had over 1,000 of their Long Snappers go to college/NFL.

I really hope this email sticks with you and is able to get Long Snappers on your list. They deserve it and it is time.

Sincerely, _____________________

Recap of the NJ Fall Camp (10/14/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on October 14th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this fall with stops in NC, NJ, WA, CA, TX, GA, AZ, IL with everything leading into the biggest and best Long Snapping event in the world, VEGAS XXXIII in January!

Long Snappers from MA, NC, NJ, NY, ON, PA, TX & VA all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.  Senior Rubio Long Snapping instructor, Corey Adams, lead the camp and had a tremendous group of  Long Snappers and parents.

The Champion of the camp was Joe Shimko! Joe is an absolute machine and tremendous talent that showed his dominance all day. The Army All American and North Carolina State commit was BOTH the overall and speed champion for the astonishing FIFTH time in his Rubio Long Snapping career! I look for Joe to continue this dominance into North Carolina State and beyond!

 

 

 

 

 

The finals matchups were between Brian McNamara (43.37), Joe Shimko (29.63), Evan Davis (26.97), Zack Taylor (18.75), Chase Donahue (18.00) and Doug Sabol (15.00) You can see the full finals video below…

Top 2019 Long Snappers

Joe Shimko

Joe Shimko was amazing from start to finish and left zero doubt why he is one of the top Long Snapping athletes in the country, and in recent years. He easily passes the eye ball test and could step foot on the field right now and play in college. His snaps are fast, accurate, and could rip a hole in whoever is catching it. Expect continued domination from him for the rest of his career.

John Morton is a snapper who continues to put in work between camps and it is evident in his improvement. He is carrying his weight very well and has solid form for a man of his size. When he is on he can compete with the best in his class.

Evan Davis always impresses with the accuracy and power he possesses. The Buffalo commit hardly missed all day, and when he did they were still exceptional snaps. Should transition well into college and make an impact in the near term!

Brian McNamara

Brian McNamara impressed all day and can throw heat back to the punter with great accuracy and consistency. On top of his snapping ability, his athleticism separated himself from the other athletes at the camp. Had an amazing all-around day.

Brady Spafford is a very athletic and powerful long snapper with a ton of potential. He showed the ability to throw darts back to the punter and holder. Brady has a very high ceiling and is oozing with potential.

Chase Donahue is a tall snapper with a great frame that can put on a lot of weight with no problem. When he is on, he throws a very catchable and accurate ball, which propelled him to the finals.

Demetrick Ray is a powerful snapper that shows flashes of greatness. Has the desire to be great and will continue to work at his craft.

 

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Bryce Eimer

Bryce Eimer had a great performance from beginning to end. The long time Rubio Long Snapper displayed what all the years of work can lead up to as he was snapping extremely accurate, quick and catchable balls all day. On top of this, he is a great athlete with a frame that can easily carry more weight and fill out over the coming years.

Jake Foggia

Jake Foggia is another long time Rubio Long Snapper who continues to improve between every camp. He performed at a very high level throughout the day, snapping extremely accurate and quick balls. Continues to put on good weight and develop into an athlete.

Sam Doughty is a very powerful and well-built Long Snapper who showed flashes of brilliance throughout the day. His legs look like he can squat 1,000 lbs and he carries the rest of his weight very well in his upper body. With continued refining of his craft he has the ability to be exceptional.

TJ Latore was a snapper who you could see slowly put together things throughout the day and improved noticeably from the first snap to the last. Great kid with a fantastic attitude along with great athletic ability. Investing in the small details will be big for him, but once he does it will take him to a whole different tier of talent.

Brandon Richards had a great day showing lots of promise in his ability and growth. He snaps a very accurate and consistent ball, and with his continued work will add speed to his snap which will make him competitive with the upper echelon of his class.

Andy Lan was full health at this camp and it really showed. His form continues to become picture perfect and his accuracy is by far his strength. Great athlete who showed a lot of upside in the agility portion of the camp. Amazing attitude and eagerness to learn and reach the next level.

Joseph Santora showed a lot of upside throughout the camp. Big snapper with a great frame. Throws an accurate and catchable ball.

 

Top 2021 Snappers

Zack Taylor

Zack Taylor continues to dominate the North East camps. The long time Rubio Long Snapper has picture perfect form and continues to grow into his body and develop strength. Can easily be better than his brother, Billy, who starts for Rutgers. Vegas will be HUGE for him this year and showing how he stacks up against the rest of his class.

Patrick Coyle

Patrick Coyle had a fantastic day throughout the whole camp. Big snapper who will continue to develop with both his form and size. Snaps a very catchable and accurate ball and has a ton of potential to compete amongst the top of his class.

Andrew Pudleiner is a very talented yet raw Long Snapper. He showed amazing ability from the start of camp, and through drill work and instruction he was beginning to put it all together. There were some growing pains as he was trying to incorporate new form and teachings; my biggest takeaway from this was his coachability and perseverance as he was continuing to work through the ups and downs.

Brian Catanzarite had a great camp and showed great improvement from his last. He is developing into a quality snapper, throwing very catchable, consistent and accurate balls. Great attitude and eager to learn.

Caleb Hoffman is a young snapper with amazing size and frame that he can grow and develop and become an absolute machine. His legs are so long he is having a hard time locking them out right now, but once he does his ball will fly back to the punter. His accuracy is good, and as his form continues to improve he will be a force to deal with.

Ryan Legere improved drastically from the start of the camp to the finish. A very eager learner who soaked everything up like a sponge. Snaps a good ball with solid accuracy, and with continued work at the drills and form taught he will see his talents jump to another level.

 

Top 2022 Snappers

Logan Rager

Logan Rager is a very talented and confident young Long Snapper who excelled all day. His form is fantastic and allows him to be extremely consistent with a quick ball and tight spiral. Has the opportunity to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class for a long period of time!

Rino Monteforte

Rino Monteforte is a very passionate and coachable Long Snapper and cares very much about his craft. Even at his young of age, his form is beyond his years. As he continues to grow into his body and develop more strength and flexibility he will be a top tier snapper for the class of 2022.

Sean O’Hara was fully healthy this camp and it showed in his snapping. All day he was snapping very catchable and consistent balls with great spirals and speed. His form improved throughout the day and with continued work has the chance to be one of the top snappers in his class.

Joseph Taikina showed flashes of greatness during the NJ camp. He has a fantastic frame and size for his age, with legs that are a mile long. Once he is able to get his form in sync and get full use out of his body, his speed and accuracy will skyrocket and he will be a force to be reckoned with.

Doug Sabol had a great day putting his snapping ability on display. Still growing into his frame and developing strength, but his spiral and accuracy were very impressive. Extremely coachable and eager to learn. I know he will take everything from the camp home and perfect his craft.

Zach Hirshon improved a great amount throughout the day. His eagerness to learn and coachability makes working with him extremely enjoyable. His snaps showed flashes of great accuracy and consistency, and once he is able to put it all together through additional work he will see very quick and drastic improvement.

Dale Stringfellow is a strong, young Long Snapper who improved a great amount through the day. He took the coaching he was receiving on the field and was applying it real time to his form and snapping motion. He has all the tools and abilities to be great, just needs a little time and drill work to perfect his craft.

 

As you know, at every Rubio Long Snapping camp, the Long Snappers are tested to receive an RSI score. This is the most accurate and fair way to test a Long Snapper. Here are the RSI Scores from the NC Camp…..

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.

Rubio Virtual Lessons!

As many of you have noticed at camps, on social media, and through conversation, Rubio Long Snapping is improving every time you see us. We add new drills, new online interviews, change up the TOP 12 format, and market our private instruction all in the efforts to create MAXIMUM exposure for the Rubio Long Snapping family.

Well, we’re improving….AGAIN!

Starting in June, Rubio Long Snapping will be launching Rubio Virtual Lessons which will exclusively be run by long-time senior staff member, John Finch. Over the past eight years, Finch has been my top private instructor (other than yours truly, of course) and he wants to help Long Snappers from all around the world, at every level. Finch has worked privately with over 30 Rubio Long Snappers that have taken their career to the collegiate level including seven TOP 12 Long Snappers in the past three years.

The goal for Rubio Long Snapping is for every Long Snapper to have the opportunity to snap in college and the NFL. Private instruction is a great way to make that happen and we know that not every member of the Rubio family lives near a private instructor. Rubio Virtual Lessons changes that and opens up private instruction to all….no matter the Long Snapper’s location!

You will be able to sign up for online private instruction with Finch through the Rubio Long Snapping registration page. Think of these lessons as the regional camp film session but one on one with just the Long Snapper, the parents and Finch (and possibly even Rubio at times). You will submit film from ten snaps to Finch and he will go through them one by one with each snapper via video chat. He will then give each Long Snapper specific drills to work on before their next session. Every single lesson will be one on one and completely tailored to what the Long Snapper needs. Each Long Snapper will be able to have a top notch private lesson with Rubio Long Snapping!

Packages will be laid out in multiple options and you can register for them HERE….

  • Solo Lesson
  • 4-pack (1 lesson per week for 1 month – 10% overall savings)
  • 8-pack (2 lessons per week for 1 month – 15% overall savings)
  • 12-pack (1 lesson per week for 3 months – 20% overall savings)
  • 24-pack (2 lessons per week for 3 months – 25% overall savings)

Be on the lookout for more information regarding the Rubio Virtual Lessons coming soon and be sure to contact Finch asap to reserve spots as he is only taking a limited number at the beginning of the Rubio Virtual Lessons.

Feel free to reach out to Finch@RubioLongSnapping.com with questions.

Rubio Virtual Lessons does not take place of a private lesson with Rubio or a certified Rubio instructor and will not allow a Long Snapper to be reranked. Only attending a camp and/or a private lesson with Rubio will do that for a Long Snapper. For more information on a private lesson with Rubio, please email Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com

It’s Almost Spring & You’re a 2017 Long Snapper, Now What?

This is easily one of the top questions I get from senior Long Snappers and/or their parents. Here are the answers:

  1. You should definitely be at Rubio Long Snapping spring camp to stay sharp, focused, continue to learn how to handle pressure and show absolute dominance.
  2. If you are uncommitted, read THIS and get yourself ready for VEGAS 30 for a final push at exposure.
  3. If you are committed, you need to push yourself even harder. Dominate every camp. Commit yourself to not being stagnant.

All seniors and their parents need to remember, while you still have some time left in high school, colleges and their football programs aren’t stopping to wait for you. They have a Long Snapper on their roster and he already hates you for even thinking you will take his Jon come the summer time.

I have done this many times and  have seen countless senior Long Snappers coast through their senior year only to find a nice spot on the bench come fall. Coaches call me continuously asking how the Long Snapper they recruited is doing. Needless to say, they are not happy when I tell them “Oh, I haven’t seen him since VEGAS XXIX”

The senior Long Snappers that keep working and attending camps are the ones that start.  It’s like clockwork.

Never rest and never stop improving seniors. See you soon!

NFL Training

In lieu of a Rubio Long Snapping NFL camp this year, I will be personally offering private lessons in Northern Idaho. Spots are limited and I will not be taking a mass group.

After speaking with college and NFL coaches, scouts and agents, I was advised to run specific lessons, this year, with each NFL ready Long Snapper to offer more one on one interaction to give back to the scouts and agents. Last year alone, Rubio Long Snapping had ELEVEN Long Snapper earn tryouts based on Rubio Long Snapping film and my word.

For this year, Rubio Long Snapping will not be running a NFL Free Agent camp to focus solely on the private lessons with NFL Free Agents

One of the things the coaches, scouts and agents liked the most is that there was no bias. If you can snap and move at the next level, I tell them that. If you can’t snap and move at the next level, I tell them that as well. I don’t care if I have seen you snap at my camps or not. This is all about a bottom line with the NFL. You either are the full package or you are not.

With eleven guys getting tryouts, it is quite clear that my word is good and definitely respected.

The lessons will offer the following….

  • Private instruction with me in an indoor location
  • Film to review as well film to send out to agents and teams with my stamp of approval on it.
  • Game plan to get each Long Snapper ready for their pro day.
  • Detailed planning on meetings with agents and coaches.

I will get you ready, it is up to you what you do when you get there!

Rubio Long Snapping YouTube Page!

The Rubio Long Snapping YouTube page has hit 1,000,000 views!!!

This is simply an incredible accomplishment as this account is, and it pains me to say it like this, only for Long Snappers.

To me, what is the most impressive thing about hitting the 1,000,000 mark in well less than ten years is that they are all genuine views and not done from a bot.

A bot is a an app companies pay for to increase their views….basically, a formula is created and it keeps “watching” the videos. It is actually funny (and sad) to watch other “bot” videos get massive amount of views in one day when you know for a fact no one is watching them and it is not authentic by being smoke and mirrors….bottom line, keep an eye out for fake exposure.

Rubio Long Snapper Nick Umble

A couple months ago I received a call from a Long Snapper named Nick Umble. It was a standard phone call that I receive several times a month. He told me how he was recently very interested in Long Snapping and wanted to go full speed into it to get to the next level. He said he was very determined and would stop at nothing.

All things I had heard before. 

But then he told me he was born in 1978 and was just about to RETIRE from the Army as a GREEN BERET. To say that Nick has done a TON for his country is a major understatement. He said he did what he needed to do in the Army and was ready for his next challenge.

Long Snapping was his next challenge.

Umble, NickNeedless to say, Nick is VERY driven and will stop at nothing. I have worked with him several times and he is an absolute workhorse. He is a large, strong Long Snapper that will do EXACTLY what you tell him to do.

Colleges need to look at him seriously for his drive, dedication and for the fact that since he has already retired from the Army, his schooling will be free.

The film you see below is from his first Rubio Long Snapping camp in WA this fall. I have worked with him since and he is already MUCH improved.

He deserves a shot at the next level and he will get one.
