Recap of the WA Fall Camp (10/21/18)

Gately, Rubio and Lindsay

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on October 21st, 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 OR, WA, CA, AZ, ID & Canada 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 champions of the camp were Gavin Gately (speed) and JJ Lindsay (overall). Gately came on very strong in the competition and was really consistent. Lindsay was hot all day and absolutely dominate during the finals. He has trimmed up his frame and looked athletic. Smooth Long Snapper with a tight spiral that handles pressure really well. Great camp for Lindsay!

The finals round matchups were Walker Hardan, Alex Sheehan, JJ Lindsay, Gavin Gately, Cole McCutcheon and Jackson Plieth.

You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

JJ Lindsay

JJ Lindsay was obviously great all day with consistent snaps that took him all the way to the championship! Smooth Long Snapper that has done a great job trimming up his body and increasing his overall athleticism.

James Durr was snapping a smooth and accurate ball all day long. Good attitude and always moving in the right direction.

Josiah Hirsch is a big and strong Long Snapper that can be leader on and off the field. Form is excellent and he has done a great job of improving his power with his punt snapping.

Gavin Gately has a great frame and was snapping a really quick ball. He ended up winning the speed competition with snaps consistently in the .7s. Upside is off the charts.

Walker Hardan is big, powerful and scored the highest RSI of the whole camp. I absolutely love when Walker snaps with full power and follows all the way through.

Alex Sheehan is an accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has all of the tools to be one of the best in his class.

Shaydon Farmer is a raw Long Snapper that is a tremendous athlete. He puts it all together and he can dominate as a Long Snapper in college.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Tommy Sullivan

Tommy Sullivan showed great improvement in WA. He looked like a completely different Long Snapper and I just saw him in July. Ball was moving quick and he is snapping with great power.

Bryce Felt has a great form and is snapping with all of his body. Excellent attitude and he is moving well on his feet.

Cameron Landes is a super long and moves well on his feet. Absolutely love when he snaps with full power and just lets the ball loose.

Jack Laurin has a great attitude and a very accurate snap. Big fan of his overall snapping ability.

Ben Shumock might have the most upside of anyone in the 2020 class. When he is on, he is VERY on. Athletic Long Snapper that could easily do this in college if he puts it all together.

Dakota Lepine showed me some very quick hands and solid athleticism. Always improving.

Cole McCutcheon made it all the way to the finals and was inches from winning the whole thing. He shows good pop and can handle pressure well.

Grayson Pibal is very long and has a great frame to put some good weight on. Easily the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. Massive upside.

Davis Salom is massive, strong and powerful. When he drives his head through and reaches all the way back, he easily dominate his class.

NOTABLE: Bryce Smithson

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Luke Basso

Luke Basso was a smooth Long Snapper with one of the best attitudes of anyone at the class. Upside is off the charts. Great kid.

Carson Jensen was an athletic Long Snapper with good upside.

Silas Moreau has some very quick hands and a good attitude.

Jackson Plieth

TOP 2022 LONG SNAPPERS
Jackson Plieth made it to the finals which is very impressive for a freshman (or any class for that matter). Form is excellent and he can already snap the ball in the .8s. Excellent attitude.

Blake Gorski is a good Long Snapper with a great frame and has improved a ton over the past year. Smooth Long Snapper with excellent form.

Anna DeCaprio is strong, powerful and has quick hands. When she gets fully set and gets her back flat, she can really get the ball back to the punter with some good quickness.

Recap of the WA Spring Camp (3/18/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on March 18th, 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 seven 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 overflowing with talent with many committed seniors and also tons of new Long Snappers.

The overall champions of the camp were Matt Tokos (speed) and Bryce Felt (overall). Felt came on very strong in the end and handled pressure like a true champion. His misses (not a lot of them, obviously) were all close to scoring and I am very impressed with how quickly he is improving! Felt represented the class of 2020 extremely well and I am proud how he handled himself coming up the Northwest from CA.

Tokos, Rubio & Felt

You can see the full finals video with Bryce Felt, Dalton Riggs, Jack Laurin, Tom Schnitzer, JJ Lindsay and Austin Duelman, below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Matt Tokos

Matt Tokos was the speed champion with a great pressure snap under .69! His ball is very tight and he snaps well on a cadence. Tokos has an excellent attitude and is always improving. He is going to make his college coach very happy for four to five years.

Kellen Dyer snaps a smooth and accurate ball with good consistency of his speed. He has the ability to get the ball back to the punter under .80 when he is really trusting his form and ripping the ball back to the punter. The more he improves his frame and athleticism, the better he will be in college.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

James Durr

James Durr was on fire all day in WA and seemed to get better as the day progressed. He was very consistently snapping in the high .8s and he moved well on his feet. Very intrigued to watch him under a massive amount of pressure at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Walker Harden has a great frame and his built extremely well. Snaps the ball hard and when the spiral is on, it is in the low .7s. Tremendous potential.

JJ Lindsay is a smooth lefty with an accurate ball. Really driving his chest through and making sure his spiral is locked down will help him a ton. Great kid.

Dalton Riggs is absolutely dripping with potential. Excellent frame and his upper body is extremely quick. If he can get his legs to match his upper body in quickness, he will end up putting a hole in the punter. When it clicks for this kid, he will dominate.

Josiah Hirsch is a big, thick Long Snapper with good form and a great personality. The harder he snaps, the better he does. Confidence is going to be huge for Josiah.

Alex Sheehan was impressive with good form and great speed. Locking down his spiral is going to be a massive key for him.

Notables: Austin Dueman, Gavin Gately, Neo Sather, Tyler Sato and Drew Maycumber

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Grayson Pibal

Grayson Pibal was extremely smooth and almost hypnotic with how smooth his snaps were throughout the whole day. Built very long with a frame that can easily put on 50 lbs over the next couple of years. The quicker he gets the ball out of the gate, the better he will be in the long run.

Cameron Landes is also another very long athlete that was smooth with his snaps and on his feet. The bigger he gets and the harder he snaps will easily make Landes one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Jack Laurin was smooth and was handling pressure very well. Made it deep into the finals and was close to winning it all. Like to see him focus on getting his butt up just a tad so his whole snapping motion is quicker.

Michael Tokos had some of the quickest hands at the camp. It was almost hard to time him during the speed competition. Like to see Tokos get his elbows more involved and really lock down the spiral.

Notables: Dakota Lepine, Tommy Sullivan

TOP 2021 and Beyond LONG SNAPPERS

Jesse Tomica

Jesse Tomica had a great attitude, moved well on his feet and was consistent with his snaps right around .85 at 15 yards. Good upside and I definitely like what I saw out of Tomica in WA.

Kayden Roxburgh showed good consistency and some solid form. Good attitude.

Carson Jensen had a great attitude and snapped with some good speed on the ball. Very good upside.

Jackson Plieth was impressive all day and is always improving.

RSI Scores Comparison Between CA, NC & WA

As you know by reading this blog, Rubio Long Snapping has adjusted the testing aspect of all regional camps this spring with the “introduction” of the RSI. I put “introduction” in quotes because RSI has been around for MANY years at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS Events but has just recently been worked into the regional camps to add continuity and to track the Long Snappers and their improvement.

For the first Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA, the RSI scores are shown here, the NC RSI scores are shown here and the WA RSI scores are here. Now that three camps have concluded, here are  the comparisons and contrasts between the three geographical areas and their Long Snappers. This is getting VERY interesting! Here you go….

Starting this spring, all Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.

Each Long Snapper will now be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair. 

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 60.61 by Kasey Kelleher at VEGAS XXIX. 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.
