From a Rubio Long Snapping Parent…..

A long time Rubio Long Snapping parent asked me if they could write a blog for everyone to read. Here it is….

I have wanted to write about our experience with Rubio Long Snapping for years because there are things that I wish someone had pointed out/told me when we were first getting started.

Our son is a Rubio Long Snapper. He isn’t just a long snapper he is a Rubio Long Snapper and he is now playing Divison 1 college football on full scholarship.

From the time our son was in 1st grade he had 3 goals:

  1. He wanted to make the Varsity Football Team at his high school as a sophomore – we are a 6A school so making Varsity as a sophomore is a big deal. (He achieved this goal)
  2. He wanted to play Division 1 college football (He achieved this goal)
  3. He wanted a full scholarship (He achieved this goal)
  4. He wanted to play in the NFL (He is working toward this goal)

We have always encouraged his passion for the game and sent him to all different types of camps – full contact as well as skills and we have had him in sports performance training since 4th grade.

He started long snapping in 7th grade. His head football coach asked anyone who thought they could snap a ball to try out for the position and he won it. While we “knew” that he snapped the ball for punts, extra points and field goals, we really didn’t have any idea it was an actual “position” so to speak. We thought it was just “something extra” he did in addition to playing Linebacker and Fullback.

The summer before his freshman year in high school he came and asked us to go to a long snapping camp and my husband and I were like – a what??? What in the heck is that? We were in the process of signing him up with a college recruiting service and I asked the representative if he knew of any long snapping camps and he recommended Rubio. The college recruiting service cost us a lot of money and didn’t end up doing anything for us in terms of recruiting BUT it will forever be worth the money because of their recommendation of Rubio Long Snapping.

I got on the computer and found out that Rubio was doing fall camps in various locations but the one closest to us was already set up. I emailed Rubio and was able to get our son on the waiting list and – eventually – into the camp.

This camp was our first exposure to the ins and outs of long snapping and to Rubio. While at the camp, my husband saw another father there that he knew. The father

wanted to share all of his knowledge with us and informed us that we shouldn’t limit ourselves to doing only Rubio camps – we should do ALL of the different ranking camps and get our son out there so he could have as much exposure as possible. Basically he was saying not to put all of our eggs in one basket. We listened politely to everything he said but at the end of the camp I told my husband that I didn’t agree – that I really liked this Rubio guy and how he ran his camp and our son seemed to respond to him and that was that. We never looked back and never put him anywhere else and have never been sorry about that. Interestingly enough, this other long snapper never ended up playing college ball and his father approached my husband here in town after our son received his scholarship to tell us how wrong he had been and if he had it to do over again, he would’ve stuck with Rubio like we did. He spent so much time running from one camp to the other that his son never had any consistency in terms of critique or what he needed to do to be the best that he could be.

SO WHY NOT PUT YOUR KID AT ALL THE DIFFERENT RANKING CAMPS?

Well, there are several reasons for this in my opinion. First, they are extensions of Kicking Camps – not really long snapping camps per se and it is not always the same person doing the evaluations and/or rankings so there is no consistency in what your son is being told to do and/or work on to improve.

Over the years, I can’t even count how many times our son has been approached to train with these other companies or attend their “invite only” camps. They have stalked him on social media, private messages and at different college camps he was attending that they happened to be running. The invited him to their regional camps and their “invitation only” camps (which is pretty much anyone that will pay for it). What they REALLY wanted to do was recruit a Rubio Long Snapper. They will pretty much tell you anything/everything you want to hear to get you to go to their camps but they really don’t do anything for you and your son in the long run – oh yeah – big talk and all but very little contacts and actions. If you look across the board in college football – the vast majority of long snappers come out of Rubio Long Snapping. I’m not telling you that there aren’t some from other companies but – overall – the college coaches trust and rely on Rubio and his evaluations. It doesn’t really matter if you are the #4 ranked long snapper in your class on their site if they are only ranking 30 kids. What, exactly, does that tell a college coach? That you invested your time and money with a company that doesn’t see enough long snappers to truly be an expert in the art form that really is long snapping.

I’ve seen kids go with other companies in addition to Rubio and think that they are somehow going to be chosen for a bowl game that way. That.Isn’t.Going.To.Happen. Let me repeat that – That.Isn’t.Going.To.Happen. Look back through their choices over the years and you can bet that their choices are never kids that train elsewhere. They TELL you that your kid is amazing and has a shot at it just to get your money and have your kid at that camp. Rubio now chooses snappers for 2 different bowl games and that isn’t an accident – he really is the foremost authority on long snappers.

If a “coach” from another long snapping company only tells you and your son how amazing he is and how much this company could do with/for them, they are likely blowing smoke up his (and your) butt. The truth is that every long snapper has things that can be improved. Our son continues to train with Rubio privately once a year and with Finch as many times as we can manage it when he is home for any period of time and he attends the college camp. And guess what? There are still things Rubio has him working on in order to go to the next level – the NFL.

Regardless of which college team is your favorite I don’t think that there is any doubt in anyones mind that Nick Saban is one of the best coaches in college football history. There is a reason that he only uses Rubio Long Snappers – think about that!

RANKINGS AND HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM

This is a tricky one and I will be the first to admit that I didn’t (and still don’t) always agree with Rubio in whoever was ranked above my kid. Now, I didn’t question the STAR rankings of the kids involved, but if there were several kids with the same number of stars – I didn’t always think that the person/people he ranked above my son were better than him. Sometimes I did agree and sometimes I didn’t but what I always DID agree with is whatever he critiqued our son on needing to work on so that is where we put our focus. Concentrating on that is what made our son the long snapper he is today.

If you and your kid don’t like where he is ranked, work on what Rubio says he needs to work on and improve that and then the next time Rubio sees him he will likely move up in the rankings because he fixed, or at the very least improved, that situation.

Or you can go coach shopping and find another company to tell you what you want to hear because they want your money. If they are telling you how awesome you are when Rubio is telling you what you need to work on then I would question their knowledge level. The way I look at it is this – wouldn’t it be “easier” for Rubio to just tell every kid how amazing he is and then write that up after every camp? He doesn’t do

that – he actually pays attention to the kid AT the camp and then goes back and watches their film and gives you detailed information – and he balances that – giving positive affirmations as well as things that need to improve. Ask yourself which “review” a college coach is going to trust – one that only tells you how amazing this kid is or one that is honest and straightforward? I personally prefer to hear the bottom line truth and so does our son. What about you?

AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT RANKINGS

I’ve heard a lot of people complain that their kid should be ranked higher or have more stars when their kid hasn’t been at camps. They complain that Rubio only wants them at the camps so that he can make more money. Two things here:

  1. Rubio can only rank the kid if he SEES the kid. So even if you think your kid is better than John X right now, if your kid isn’t at the camp and John X is and John X is better NOW than the last time Rubio saw your kid then John X is going to jump your kid in the rankings because he can only compare John X NOW to your kid the last time he saw him. This isn’t Rubio moving your kid down in the rankings at all – it is about another kids improvement since the last time he saw him and since he hasn’t seen your kid since then…..well you see how that is?
  2. This is Rubio’s business – his livelihood, his way to support his family so absolutely there is a financial aspect to him doing this. But – I have never been involved with an organization where the owner gives so much back to the kids. If you or your kid texts Rubio, he answers, if you comment on one of his posts on social media – he answers. He is encouraging and funny and supportive of everyone that is part of the Rubio Family – parents and kids and he doesn’t charge a dime for any of that “extra” support. My son started as a true college freshman and his first game was an away game and it was supposed to rain. Although my son was confident in his abilities he was a bit nervous and got in touch with Rubio and guess what Rubio did? He answered him right away and took the time to talk him through everything that needed to happen for our son to be successful. He set him at ease and helped him get out of his head in that minute when it truly mattered. I don’t know any other “long snapping” companies that are that accessible in that way and would’ve taken that time – after business hours – to do that. Do you?

    RUBIO FAMILY

Our particular high school class of long snappers was an exceptionally close class and I have heard people from other classes complain that they don’t have that bond that we

had – parents and kids. ANY class can have that bond but you have to have one or more families who are invested in making things happen – lunch together during camps, dinners together after camps staying the same hotel in Vegas and regional camps, etc. Guess what that means? Someone has to step up to the plate and coordinate it all – meaning do the research and keep in contact with everyone. If no one does that then it doesn’t happen.

The other thing I noticed is that all the families in our class were supportive of ALL the boys. There wasn’t any competition EXCEPT on the field. These kids have had a group chat going since they were Event Elite together summer before their Junior Year in high school and Top 12 the summer before their Senior Year and they are going into their (academic) Junior Year in college now and still chatting via group text. If someone was going to turn down an offer, they told the others in their group chat so that the rest of them could reach out to the coach if they were interested in playing for that college. No one “hoarded” that information – they shared contact information for coaches so that they could all achieve their dreams. They were all doing exactly what Rubio taught them to do – building each other up rather than tearing each other down.

Whenever I’ve seen issues between kids in the same class (not friendly competition), you can bet that some adults is egging that on and so if you stop any of that, then you can all have the same closeness up and down the rankings that we had. I can honestly tell you that out of the 5 Start Snappers in our class any one of them could’ve been #1 in the class on any given day. And, out of the parents in our class – we are still close to many of them and keep in touch and keep rooting for each others kids.

Rubio actively encourages these kids to not only be great long snappers but also to be great human beings.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

If your son genuinely wants to play college football don’t be laser focused on whether it is a scholarship or a PWO. I mean, I get it – they all want a full ride but there are still some schools that simply will not bring in a long snapper on scholarship as a true freshman. Don’t make your son feel like a failure that he “only” received PWOs. Long Snapping isn’t like playing QB or RB where the school is going to take at least one player in that position every single year. If they don’t need a long snapper, it doesn’t matter how good your kid is – they aren’t going to take them.

We constantly told our son that he could play where HE wanted to play whether it was a PWO or scholly (and he multiple offers of each type). Ultimately he chose a school

that offered him a full ride but – for him – it was more about the actual University then it was about anything else.

CONTINUED TRAINING

This is a mistake I’ve seen families make. Our son got the offer so we are done with training. The difference between high school football and college football is the difference between driving on the Interstates here in the US and driving on the autobahn in Germany and you want your son to keep honing his skills for his entire college – and NFL – career.

We highly recommend starting private lessons with Rubio in high school and continuing these at least yearly – through college and beyond. Also, be sure you have your kid training at least sometimes during the year with a RUBIO instructor (Samantha can tell you where the closest RUBIO instructor is to you) and if you aren’t near one then go with Virtual Lessons. We started private lessons with Finch as soon as we started with Rubio and that made a huge difference. We didn’t have the option of virtual lessons at that time so we drove quite a distance on a regular basis so that our son could improve. With the option of virtual lessons, the sky is truly the limit in terms of improvement.

The one “regret” that I have is that we didn’t start private lessons with Rubio in Idaho sooner than we did. It is definitely an investment but having Rubio completely and utterly focused on your son for a period of time truly is priceless and every time we have gone up there it has taken our son to the next level. So, as soon as you can afford that – do it – you won’t regret it.

We also recommend attending January and May Vegas if at all possible. It gives your son invaluable experience.

THOUGHTS TO TAKE AWAY

To sum all of this up, our son worked very hard and daily to achieve his goal of playing college football and continues to work his butt off to be the best that he can be but none of this would’ve been possible without Rubio.

Rubio wasn’t easy on him. He set goals for him that were sometimes difficult for our son to achieve but he worked as hard as he did because Rubio expected it of him and challenged him to never settle for less. People rise to the level of expectation that are

placed upon them and we believe that Rubio set him up for success by expecting these things from him.

So I will end this the way I started it…..Our son is a Rubio Long Snapper. He isn’t just a long snapper, he is a Rubio Long Snapper and we are very proud of that distinction.

Recap of the TX Summer Camp (7/22/18)

Chism, Rubio, Oldham

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on July 22nd, 2018 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping traveled around the country this summert with stops in CA, NC, GA, IL, SC (Top Gun Camp), CA (College, TOP 12, Underclassmen Invitational) and TX!

Long Snappers from TX, LA, NE, OK, NM, MS & CA 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 overall champion of the camp was BRANDON OLDHAM (2019, TX). Brandon is a very smooth Long Snapper that is extremely accurate and consistent. Great frame and he is built thick. Loves when he really locks down his release point as that is when he doesn’t miss.

The speed champion of the camp was Eli Chism. He hit several snaps under .75 and had some very quick hands. Really impressed with his frame and how he handled the pressure when it came down to the final snaps. Great upside and an even better attitude.

The finals round matchups were Bryce Felt (51.39), Eli Chism (38.67), Brandon Oldham (38.36), John Farris (30.26), Brayden Chandler (25.93) and Blake Hooker 21.52.  You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Braedy Wilson was very smooth and proved that he is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. Great frame and his ball can be very quick.

Zac Bland is strong and was snapping with some very quick hands. Really impressed with what I saw out of Bland and look forward to seeing him this fall and beyond.

John Farris handled pressure well making it all the way to the finals. The more he really rips the ball back and can lock down his spiral, the better he will be. Great attitude.

Brayden Chandler has quick hands and was on fire all day in TX. Really done a great job of improving his overall frame and athleticism.

Olin Ferguson has a very long frame and tons of upside. Snapped the ball hard and was impressive. Watch him.

Nick Stoia had some of the quickest hands at the camp and absolutely tremendous frame.

Luke Taggart has as much upside as anyone in the country. Athletic build and moves very well on his feet.

Garrett Townsend is smooth with great consistency and accuracy.

Joshua Smetzer was snapping the ball with solid smoothness and easily getting under .80. Keep an eye on him.

Notables: Nicholas DiVirgilio, Corey Presusse, Jacob Trim

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Blake Hooker is consistent, accurate and right on the cusp of greatness. When it clicks on Hooker, he is simply tremendous. Catches waves of brilliance and can dominate a day of camp.

Bryce Felt is snapping with a ton of power and has a tremendous attitude. Handles pressure well and his form is gorgeous. Making sure he is going straight back is going to be huge.

Ethan Lane had a great day in TX. Thick, big and strong Long Snapper with very quick hands that can get the ball back very quickly to the punter. Always improving.

Phillip Bourque is a big Long Snapper with an extremely smooth snapping motion. Need to see him snap as hard as he possibly can at all times and use all of his big body.

Notables: Connor Blackwell, David Perez

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Ben Wheless had a great day in TX. Thick and powerful Long Snapper with a consistent snapping motion. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for Wheless.

Grant Steffen was accurate and consistent Long Snapper with a smooth snapping motion.

Notables: Blake Rejcek

Recap of the All-American Bowl Long Snappers

After two great days of competing at the FBU TOP GUN camp in Rock Hill, SC, two Long Snappers stepped up and earned their tickets to the All-American Bowl on January 5th, 2019 in San Antonio, TX! This bowl game is the largest High School Bowl game with over 40,000 in attendance and over 5 million watching live on NBC!

Rubio, Mad Dog, Erik Richards

At the conclusion of the first day, Erik Richards (National Scouting Director for the All-American Games) came over to see the talent and wanted one Long Snapper to snap in front of him and the crowd. Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner was chosen for the ultimate pressure snaps. Mad Dog is committed to LSU on full scholarship and proved he is worth it with three powerful snaps and even a show of athleticism as Richards wanted to see him snap and take off (even timed it). Right after the third snap, Richards announced the Mad Dog would be the first All-American Bowl Long Snapper!

On the second day, the competition was fierce but two Long Snappers came out on top to battle for a bowl spot. The finals round matchup was between Joe Shimko (NJ, ’19) and JC Vega (GA, ’19). Shimko is committed to NC State on full scholarship and Vega has an offer to Pikesville. Both Long Snappers were deserving but Shimko was just unstoppable when the pressure was on.

Very proud of all of the Long Snappers and can’t wait to see Shimko and Skinner represent themselves, their schools, their communities, their states and Rubio Long Snapping in San Antonio, TX!

Here is the matchup between Shimko and Vega….

Recap of the Polynesian Bowl Selections

Simon Samarzich

After two great days of competing, two Long Snappers stepped up and earned their tickets to the Polynesian Bowl on January 19th, 2019 in at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii! This bowl game has quickly become one of the top bowl games in the country for high school athletes. This year, the Polynesian Bowl will be aired live on CBS! 

Jack Landherr

The finals round matchups were Simon Samarzich (CA, ’19) vs. Peter Bowden (CA, ’19) and Drew Little (NC, ’19) vs. Jack Landherr (CA, ’19). This group of Rubio Long Snappers was overflowing with talent as Samarzich is committed to Washington State on full scholarship, Drew Little is committed to North Carolina on full scholarship, Landherr has offers from Army, Navy and Air Force while Bowden has offers from Wisconsin, Northwestern, Penn & San Diego. Obviously, all of these Long Snappers deserved the spot but we had to have two winners and the two that stepped up in the end were Simon Samarzich and Jack Landherr.

Recap of the IL Summer Camp (7/9/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on July 9th, 2018 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, GA, IL, SC (Top Gun Camp), CA (College, TOP 12, Underclassmen Invitational) and TX!

Long Snappers from KS, IL, GA WA, CA, AZ, TN, MO, IN, OH, MN & MI 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 champion of the camp was David Boan (2020, IL). David was actually the speed AND overall champion with powerful snaps and getting hot at the right time. Boan grows by the hour and has a very smooth snapping motion where his ball tends to pick up speed along the way. Tremendous talent with great potential.

The finals round matchups were Jackson Worthen (53.25), David Boan (53.35), Caden Bolz (50.67), Brad George (46.67), Luke Elmore (37.04), Jaden Mueller (33.33).  You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo

Jude Pedrozo was tremendous out in IL with extremely smooth snaps, a solid body and athleticism that shows me he can be a true factor on the punt coverage team. Form is good and the harder he snaps, the better he looks on the field.

Caden Bolz came out from KS and left no doubt he is one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in the country. Strong based, good balance and has the ability to rip the ball back to the punter. Should be fun with him at the TOP 12 camp.

Brad George has good form and snaps a crisp, powerful ball back to the punter. Very consistent Long Snapper. Each snap looks the same over and over. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for him.

Aidan Hall was moving well on his feet and was outstanding when he led with his elbows and snapped with full power.

Joey Wilson is very athletic and can get the ball out of the gate quickly. Great potential.

Jack Schmitz is extremely athletic, has a great frame and is dripping with potential

Nathan Tokar is thick and powerful with a smooth snapping motion. Getting his eyes through will help a ton to make him ready for the next level.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

David Boan

David Boan was the overall champion of the camp and crushed it all day long. Massive frame that will be able to put some excellent weight on over the next couple of days.

Christo Kelly has a great, thick frame and snaps the ball with solid power. Tight spiral and when he is on, he is very on. Kid is a stud.

Jackson Worthen was very smooth and snapping with great power throughout his whole body. His form is absolutely gorgeous.

Cody White was snapping pearls all day and his ball gets faster every time I see him. Powerful Long Snapper

Will Halkyard might be the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. It is almost poetic to watch him snap the ball.

Jared Lawrence came out and was very impressive with snap speeds and attitude.

Tom O’Keefe is a big Long Snapper with a tight spiral and great upside.

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker looked outstanding in IL. Has the frame of a college Long Snapper right now and he still has several years of high school left. Ball is easily under .80. The sky is the limit for Nick.

Andrew Boan is built long with a frame that can put on some good weight over the next couple of years. Uses all of his whole body extremely well and is ball is very fast for his size.

Sam Long was very impressive in IL with a great frame and solid snaps.

Christian Johnstone looks like a college Long Snapper right now and he can snap like one as well. Ball is powerful, smooth and easy to catch. Excellent Long Snapper.

JC Vega won the speed competition, is a tremendous athlete and can pass an eyeball test a 1/4 mile away. Kid looks good and is just getting better and better by the second.

Long Snappers from three states 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 Kameron Hawkins (speed) and Simon Samarzich (overall)! Samarzich has recently committed to Washington State on full scholarship and he proved in CA that the Cougs got a great one. He is one of the most consistent Long Snappers ever to go through Rubio Long Snapping. Ball hovers in the low .7s at all times, he can move well on his feet and he has, easily, one of the greatest attitudes of all Rubio Long Snappers in the country. Samarzich is the real deal and just never stops improving.

The finals round matchups were Simon Samarzich (57.14), Cruz Rubio (41.56), Bryce Felt (41.03), Andrew Gonneville (38.82), Jack Landherr (34.21) and Aaron Estrada (33.33). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich was a machine all day in CA. The WSU Cougars got a great one on and off the field. This kid has the ability to be successful in whatever he chooses to do in life.

Peter Bowden was on fire all day and has already been moved to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Kid is a flat out stud and can snap at the next level right now.

Jack Landherr throws severe heat and simply never misses when he gets his eyes all the way through to the punter. Tremendous talent and upside.

JJ Lindsay is a very smooth lefty that is always improving. Massive potential and I love his work ethic.

Andrew Gonneville has massive upside, snaps a powerful ball and has a great frame.

Anthony Rosenstrauch might have the most upside of anyone in his class. Reaches back like a champ and snaps with amazing power. Raw.

Danny Dixon has one of the best attitudes in his class and has solid power.

Nathan Hedberg is strong and a tremendous athlete.

Nathan Newkirk is a massive human being with tons of power. Ironing out his form is going to make this kid unstoppable.

NOTABLES: Aidan Rosette and Steven Scheite

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins continues his dominance and was the fastest overall Long Snapper with times that reached into the high .6s. Form is exceptional and the ball can crush a punter. Hard worker that never stops improving.

Cruz Rubio was absolutely on fire all day. Strong Long Snapper with very good feet. Snaps the ball with good speed and even earned a WILD CARD spot to The TOP 12 Camp!

Bryce Felt has been only snapping for 11 months and he is already a seasoned vet. Rips the ball back consistently under .80 and doesn’t show signs of slowing down.

Aaron Estrada had a great camp with consistent and accurate snaps that got better as the day continued.

Davis Salom is a massive and powerful human being that can absolutely rip the ball to the punter. Excellent speed and almost won the competition.

Michael Munoz has all the tools to be one of the greats in his class and beyond.

Cody White was snapping massive heat all day and was gaining confidence every hour. He looked great in CA.

Tony Villarreal is big, strong and snaps with excellent power. Right on the cusp of greatness.

Michael Tokos has very quick hands and is improving by the second.

AJ Laux was very solid and extremely large. When his spiral is on, he is tremendous.

Troy Sicaeros is smooth and accurate with a great attitude.

NOTABLES: Nathan Hall, Mitch Carmer, Mason Hutton

10 Tips for College Camps

Headed to a college camp this summer? Here’s ten great tips to help you out…..

1. Dress accordingly, roll up with a Rubio Long Snapping shirt on so they know what you are all about and that you have a great background in Long Snapping. Earned a TOP 12 shirt, even better.

2. Be prepared to answer basic questions regarding your name, height, weight, school, GPA, test scores, where you live, etc. Speak clearly and slow down. Remember, everyone might now have your same accent 

3. Look each coach directly in their eyes and shake their hands firmly. Nervous about speaking to someone, look at their forehead or right above their eyes and it will be close enough. Breathe

4. Drink a ton of water and make sure you are continuously stretching. You don’t want to cramp up and you don’t know when they might pull you to the side to do something different.

5. Do NOT over-snap. If you get thrown to another field to “just go and snap” be sure to take long pauses. You bodies are not meant to snap hundreds of balls in one day. Once your form is gone, your snaps will be negatively impacted.

6. Be friendly to everyone (should be a no-brainer) while on campus. You never know who is talking to you or who is watching you. CAMERAS ARE EVERYWHERE

7. Never, and I mean NEVER, lose your composure over a bad snap. Your recruiting will not end over one bad snap but it might over one bad reaction.

8. SNAP WITH CONFIDENCE and believe in yourself. You’ve snapped a thousand balls in your life, these will be no different. You are still just an upside quarterback going the wrong way Snapping some leather backwards. It’s not rocket science.

9. Do NOT, I repeat, DO NOT do too many camps in June. NEVER go back to back days and try to limit yourself to no more than FOUR camps in the month. Your body won’t be able to handle it and your performances will be impacted. One bad camp can spread quickly amongst coaches

10. Thank your parents/guardians for spending the money to take you to these camps. Big hugs to them (after you shower). Be nice and, of course, never be the first to let go from the hug #RubioFamily#TheFactory #TeamRubio

Here are the SNAP SPEEDS from VEGAS XXXII. Every Long Snapper was timed a minimum of ten times over the course of the weekend by Rubio and staff members (target testing). Rubio was actually timing Long Snappers throughout the day on Saturday as well (many of whom never even noticed) to get the most accurate average of snap times ever at a VEGAS Event. Bottom line, the times you see below are from 15 yards and averaged with testing, running and agility snaps.

Recap of the TX Spring Camp (4/29/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on April 29th, 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 10 states 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 Braedy Wilson (speed) and Eliot Gottsegen (overall)! Braedy was on fire throughou the speed competition and was having no problem getting sub .75. Gottsegen got hot at the right time and just became a juggernaut and mowed down Long Snapper after Long Snapper in the finals. Smooth Long Snapper with quick eyes and hands. Really impressive how well he handled the pressure of being in the finals and winning while being just a freshman!

Wilson, Rubio and Gottsegen

The finals round matchups were Blake Hooker (62.11), JJ Lindsay (54.10), Grant Goltra (45.88), Hayden Hood (42.47), Eliot Gottsegen (30.67) and Dylan Wiltcher (29.63). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Evan “Mufasa” Gibson was smooth, consistent and left no doubt he is ready for college. Body is thick and he is strong. Ball hovers in the mid to high .7s and can trickle to the .8s if he becomes tentative. The harder he snaps the ball, the better Mufasa will do in the long run. Great attitude.

Mason Smith was very efficient with his snapping motion and hovered right in the low .8s all day long. Good worker that listens well.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Luke Rizzo was on absolute fire all day long in TX. You could tell he was a man on a mission and he left no doubt he was one of the most dominant Long Snappers in the country today. Body is getting thicker and stronger by the hour. Ball is very quick. Making sure he is extending the ball out and getting fully set puts this kid at 5 Stars at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Hayden Hood is a very athletic Long Snapper with a smooth, consistent snapping motion. Love his overall attitude and I am ready to win a camp and leave no doubt.

Caden Bolz is thick and strong with very quick hands and legs. Butt is lower than normal and he can still get his legs locked. Ball is powerful.

Braedy Wilson won the speed competition, is built extremely long and can rip the ball back to the punter. Moves in a smooth fashion and if he can fully lead with his elbows, he will average sub .70

Brandon Oldham is thick and strong with a quick ball. Lowering his butt to get his back to parallel will take him to the top.

Joshua Burtch is big and strong with very quick hands. Thick Long Snapper that can dominate at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Brayden Chandler showed me some great things in TX and he has all of the tools to be one of the greats.

Andrew Downs is a quiet Long Snapper that does all of his talking with snap speeds well under .80 on a consistent basis.

John Farris has a great attitude and has some of the quickest hands in the country.

Jack Harrison improved a ton and is starting to snap with a lot of confidence. Watch this kid.

JJ Lindsay is beyond smooth and snaps one of the most catchable balls in the country.

Joshua Smetzer hovered under .80 all day and has a massive amount of upside.

Nick Stoia will absolutely crush his class if he can focus on slow motion drills to get all of his lower half fully involved.

Jake Zenger has a tremendous attitude and a frame that could put on fifty pounds over the next couple of years to make himself a top prospect.

Landon Sleeper is strong and smooth. Leading with his elbows is the key to his greatness.

Notables: Nate McCormack, Anthony Rosenstrauch, Cayden Sparks, Nicholas DiVirgilio, Zac Bland

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Blake Hooker was tremendous in TX and actually broke the spring record for RSI with a 62.11! Ball is very quick and he is starting to really roll right now. The more he snaps with absolute confidence and knows how great he is, the better he will be and be able to fully dominate his class. Watch him very closely at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Dylan Wiltcher made it to the finals and was inches from winning the whole time. He looked very determined and showed he is a flat out stud in his class.

Bryce Felt came out from CA and was snapping with great power. Ball rarely goes above .80 at fifteen yards and his improvement over the past couple of months is off the charts.

Bryce Eimer was snapping very well under pressure and is close to snapping a college ball right now and he still has two years left of high school.

Jake Foggia looked great in TX with his very smooth snaps and great attitude. Always improving and the more he leads with his elbows and snaps with full power, the more dominant he becomes.

Jackson McFarland was snapping some severe heat in TX and left no doubt he can be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Eli Chism has grown very well over the past couple of months and is starting to look like a college Long Snapper now.

John Bergeron is smooth and has great form. Locking down his spiral is going to be the key.

Jarret Caillier has great size and all of the tools to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Nolan Pope is big, has a great personality and very quick hands.

Ethan Lane is big, thick and very strong. Making sure his elbows are going straight back is the key to greatness.

Lee Pyles is very good and he is headed towards great. Ball is very quick.

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS
JT Sleeper is a big and thick Long Snapper that snaps a beyond smooth ball. Form is coming along extremely well and the kid is an absolute workhorse. The harder he snaps the ball and the more he can improve his overall athleticism, the higher up the rankings he will go.

Connor Able has all of the tools to be one of the best Long Snappers in his class. Great attitude and listens well. Locking down his spiral will help a ton.

Byron Rhodes will dominate his class once he stops thinking a little bit. Just letting his body do all of the work and trusting his form will be huge for Rhodes.

Grant Goltra is absolutely overflowing with potential and can crush everyone if he can utilize all of his body. Slow motion snaps will help him a ton.

Recap of the NJ Spring Camp (4/29/18)

Corey Adams leading a great camp in NJ!

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to NJ on April 29th, 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 six states 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 overall champions of the camp were Joe Shimko (speed) and Zach Taylor (overall)! This is another notch on the belt for Joe with regards to championship as he has won multiple camps, both speed and overall. Zach is a 2021 Long Snapper from New Jersey that has improved greatly over the past couple years. He is extremely accurate and snaps a ball that is in direct comparison with kids two to three years older than him! Great to see him excel under pressure at such a young age and expect big things from him in the future!

You can see the full finals video with John Morton, Zack Taylor, Logan Rager, Rino Monteforte, Joe McCabe and Zachary Zimmerman HERE

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Joe Shimko

Joe Shimko was absolutely dominate all day. As noted above, he was the speed champion (final snap was clocked at .63!) but that doesn’t do justice to how accurate and consistent he was through the morning session. I did not see Joe snap a misguided or wobbly ball all day, with him continuing to put weight on his frame and combining that with his athletic ability, he should excel and the collegiate level!

Zachary Zimmerman was someone who was extremely impressive all day. The amount of improvement he has shown in a short period of time is phenomenal, and with his long and lengthy frame that could handle another 20 pounds no problem, he is going to impress a lot of people at Vegas XXXII. Moves well for his height and has tons of upside.

John Morton was the #1 overall seed in the RSI testing, and was in a heated battle with Zach through the championship. John is a very big and powerful snapper with a quick ball. Really shined in the agility portion of the camp, and for a man of his size he moves exceptionally well.

Stephen Sokach-Minnick had a phenomenal camp from start to finish. His form is almost perfect, and his speed and accuracy was impressive throughout. Really seeing his confidence develop the older he gets, and with him showing tons of upside in this athletic ability via the agility drill, he is one to watch in the coming months.

Evan Davis is as big and strong of a Long Snapper as you will find. Snaps the ball very angry, which I loved, but still has the finesse to snap a tight and very catchable ball. When he locks in he does not miss, and when he develops the consistency to never miss he will be set.

Nathan Smith is someone who really impressed with his raw talent and coachability. Incredibly thick and powerful lower body, and once he gets his legs involved with is snaps he very well likely may kill someone with his ball. Excited to see him to put the work in and improve.

CJ Otwell had a very strong showing all day snapping heat with tight spirals. His accuracy is impressive, just needs to continue to snap it hard and have confidence in himself; when he does that he will blow the roof off his upside.

Demetrick Ray showed very quick hands and tremendous flexibility through the day. Extremely eager to learn and get better. Developing consistency will be his biggest challenge, but once he develops that he has a bright future.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Joe McCabe

Joe McCabe was beyond phenomenal all day. His improvement is second to none, and his speed and accuracy is extremely competitive with the top snappers in his class. Continued attendance and competition against top talents will prove this for him and am looking forward to what the future holds.

Connor Rhinehart had a great camp and continues to grow his abilities as the years progress. He has put on solid weight to go with his frame, and his form is darn near textbooks. Very passionate snapper who has a bright future ahead of him as he continues to piece everything together.

Andy Lan had a great first camp. Although he was battling a little bit of a hamstring injury that governed his snapping as the day progressed, he showed great ability and eagerness to learn throughout the day. Tons of upside and once he is fully healthy I expect him to be extremely competitive within his class and surprise a lot of people.

Will Ruckert was possibly the most improved at the camp. From the time we first got film to the day ended, he adapted so many of the coaching tips and techniques and improved his overall ability. An eager learner, he was willing to come up and ask questions during breaks or after camp on he can fix one thing or another. Excited to see him in the near future after he has had some time to dedicate to his craft!

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Zack Taylor

Zack Taylor was phenomenal all day, snapping balls in the mid .7s and great accuracy/consistency. He has a great snapping lineage to live up to, and did something his brother could never do and won his first camp! Zack has a very bright future ahead of him and fully expect him to compete at the highest level.

Paul Joseph Meyers was unrecognizable from the last camp he attended. He has put on a ton of muscle and feels like he grew 10 more inches. His frame and length is unheard of, and he is so smooth as he snaps. Once he gets comfortable on moving a body of his size and gets the form down, he will be able to open the flood gates and snap as hard as he can – once this happens everyone in his class should be on notice.

Brian Catanzarite had a great first camp and showed a lot of potential. Very raw and powerful snapper who was extremely coachable and adapted to adjustments very well. Great kid who will put in the work and come back better than he left today!

Joey Vannozzi showed great athletic ability and upside throughout the day. Very coachable and eager to learn, Joey improved drastically from the first snap to the last. Excited to see him continue to develop physically and work on his craft. His upside is off the charts and is one to keep an eye on!

AJ Franklin improved drastically throughout the day, and as he continues to perfect his craft with the drills and technique learned at the camp, he will be very dangerous. Great frame that has the potential to put on a lot of weight.

Matthew Irwin had a sold showing all camp. Very coachable snapper who was seeking out advice and very attentive to everything around him. Lots of raw talent in this snapper, and once he gets everything fine-tuned he will be a force.

TOP 2022 and 2023 LONG SNAPPERS

Rino Monteforte

Rino Monteforte produced a strong showing for someone of his age and competed with kids years older than him. Beyond coachable and excited about perfecting his craft. As he continues to grow and develop as an athlete he will be tremendous.

Logan Rager was another underclassman in the finals of the camp. He proved he can compete with top talent at this camp, and once he develops the confidence to close out competitions he will kill it. If he focuses on continuing to snap hard and go back, not up, he has all the tools he needs

Sean O’Hara battled through a broken finger to compete in the camp today. Even with 9 healthy fingers he still great upside and potential. He was snapping quick and tight spirals, and his form was very strong. Some minor adjustments with is weight and timing will separate him from the pack. Expect very big things from him in the future.

John Fitzpatrick showed flashes of tremendous long snapping throughout the day. Developing some consistency as well as fine tuning his form will be big for him. Fully expect him to go home and work on the drill work and come back better than ever.

Robby VanEuwen was the youngest Long Snapper at the camp, but that didn’t shy him away from competing with everyone older than him. Refusing to use a ball his size and snapping at 14 yards proved that he wanted to show his worth, and he did. His form is beyond solid for his age, and as he continues to grow and develop athletically he will have a tremendous foundation for future success.

Where Are They Now? Sodie Orr

For the next installment of the Rubio Long Snapping Where Are They Now? series, we head to sunny Southern California to learn about Sodie Orr.

Sodie is a TOP 12 Long Snapper from the class of 2012 that was always a crowd favorite with his overflowing personality and his tendency to bring into song. Don’t believe me? Check out Sodie’s entry for a Rubio Long Snapping contest many moons ago….

Sodie and his mom

Sodie went off to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo but realized that college football wasn’t for him in the long run. He had visions (or sounds) of music on his mind and he didn’t want let his musical dream fade so he ran with it! He has played under the name Sodie Orr, Sodie Aura and Wes James. Here we go…..

What is your occupation? I am currently a full time musician

Where do you live? I live in Carlsbad but am moving to the San Fernando Valley soon.

Married? Kids? No marriage and I ammmm NOT THE FATHER (yet, praise the heavens)

What is your fondest memory of your time playing college football? My fondest memory of playing college football is watching all the upperclassmen angrily look at me with jealousy in their eyes as they practiced while i sat on the sidelines for the last 2 hours of practice every day. Special teams was right after warm ups.

How come you no longer play football? Full time musician.

If you could give ONE bit of advice to the current Rubio Long Snappers, what would it be? If I could give a bit of advice to Rubio Long Snappers, it would be to really appreciate the camps and time with Rubio while you’re there. Football was cool, but being a part of the Rubio family and Long Snapping community meant more to me than anything I ever did in college. I learned a lot about life and how to be a better human as well as a better long Snapper.

If you could give ONE bit of advice to the current Rubio Long Snapping PARENTS, what would it be? My advice to the parents of Rubio Snappers would be to push your young man harder. Make sure he’s doing his drills daily, stretching, and that his grades are up. I’ve seen a lot of my friends lives change completely in the best ways from dedicating fully to the craft. Shoutout to my NFL homies I met at Rubio camps.

When was the last time you snapped a ball and for what reason? The last time I snapped a ball was a few months ago, on camera, to show Rubio I still sling pearls. Once a snapper always a snapper.

If you could go back and play football in college again, would you go to the same school or a different one? Why? If I HAD to go back to school again and play ball, I would want to go to a different school. I didn’t enjoy my program very much, and would have enjoyed the benefits of playing for a big time football oriented university. I also realized once I got there that I didn’t love football at all. If Long snapping was an Olympic sport I would have gone for gold… but I knew that football wasn’t my path, so I left and went for my dream of making music. And if you’re feeling that way, it’s okay. Stick it out as long as you can and give it a chance to come around. But if you know deep down it’s not for you once you’re in it, don’t be afraid to follow your heart and passion.

Chance the Rapper with Sodie Aura (Sodie Orr)!

Any regrets during college? Anything you wish you had done or hadn’t done? I don’t have too many regrets about my college experience. Since my heart wasn’t in football, I do feel that I missed out on a lot of the things that were going on while I was traveling for away games etc. But I am and will always be grateful I got there through Rubio’s teachings and my own hard work.

What tremendous thing have you been a part of or experienced since you graduated? I did not graduate… instead I started writing music and decided to do a showcase in LA, where an A&R from Atlantic Records saw me and wanted to sign me on the spot. Since then, i have recorded at multiple Atlantic Records studios, opened for artists such as Curren$y, Ab Soul, Chance the Rapper, Shwayze, and more. I interned for rapper Too $hort for a year at his complex in LA, as well as producer legend Rodney Jerkins (aka Darkchild). And I believe that’s all just the tip of the iceberg. As long as I maintain BALANCE in my life (work hard/ maintain self care, grind/ get proper rest), EXTEND and network with the contacts I’ve made in the industry and beyond, and FOLLOW THROUGH on my commitments and goals… anything is possible.

Neil Diamond with Wes James (Sodie Orr)!!!!

The poster you see above was given to me by Sodie Orr. It is when he was a special guest of Neil Diamond (if you don’t know who the legend Neil Diamond, you have some severe issues) and opened for him in San Diego. I hang it proudly where I do lessons and have it right next to where all the Long Snappers snap the ball so they can see it and realize that life is not all about Long Snapping and a person has to be truly well rounded to succeed. This poster is truly one of my most valued possessions I own. Thank you Sodie!

Recap of the GA Spring Camp (4/22/18)

JC Vega, Rubio and Jackson Worthen

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on April 22nd, 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 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 overall champions of the camp were JC Vega (speed) and Jackson Worthen (overall)! This is JC’s second speed championship. Jackson is a 2020 Long Snapper from Kentucky that proved he was one of the best in attendance and was simply on fire all day long in GA. Ball is very smooth, was easily under .79 all day long and he handles pressure extremely well for his age. Kid was very impressive from start to finish.

You can see the full finals video with Drew Little, Doug McLaughlin, John Morton, Jackson Worthen, Brennen Milliron and Mason Napper below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Brennen Milliron

Brennen Milliron left no doubt he is ready for Troy with strong and consistent snaps all day long! Great attitude, form and power. 

Niko Johnson has good power and a terrific work ethic.

Graham Finklea is smooth, accurate and always has a good attitude.

Drew Little

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Drew Little nabbed the highest RSI, again, at a Rubio Long Snapping spring camp. Already held the spring record with a 61.00 and he almost topped that with a 55 in GA. Kid is a machine and just keeps improving.

Christian Johnstone seems to get bigger by the second and is really starting to snap with some great power. The ceiling for Johnstone is beyond high and he is really starting to believe he can be one of the bests in his class.

JC Vega was the speed champ, again, and left no doubt he has the whole package to snap at the next level. Kid is built like a clydesdale.

Griffin Kaye came up from Florida and was ripping the ball back to the punter. Very excited to see this kid perform in Vegas.

Frank Melgarejo was smooth and very accurate all day long. Moved well on his feet.

Luke Payne is like a pitching machine. Every snap is the exact same.

Cade DeGraw can get very hot and throw an absolute fantastic ball back to the punter.

Doug McLaughlin continues to impress me with his accuracy and consistency. He missed his final snap by no more than an inch.

Carson Knight can get hot and dominate.

Codey Bennett is always improving and has great upside.

Hudson Brown is growing by the hour and looked very impressive.

Ford Hayes is absolutely dripping with potential.

Zach Lassiter will dominate once his spiral is locked down.

Edward Lovett had tremendous follow through and has massive upside.

John Morton is thick, strong and improving.

CJ Otwell has a very explosive snapping motion and I love it.

Notables: Craig Scott, Mark Fuchs, Hunter Williamson

Jacob Zuhr

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Jacob Zuhr was insanely good all day in GA. He can snap a college level ball right now and he is only a sophomore. He handles pressure as well anyone I have had and there is no doubt he can snap at the next level. Ball rips back to the punter and his body is really tightening up. Looks great.

Zane McCracken is coming back to dominance and snapping with great confidence. Very impressive performance all day from Zane.

Grant Reid has good size and can rip it back to the punter when he trusts his form.

Will Albright is absolutely tremendous when he reaches the ball out in front of him more than he normally does.

Will Barton was strong and powerful with great snaps.

Will Benton looked great with snaps that never went above .80 all day long!

Will Cobb was throwing some severe heat and left no doubt he can dominate at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Jake Foggia is smooth and extremely consistent.

Xander Echols has great form and an outstanding attitude. The longer he gets, the better he does.

Jake Gragg shows waves of brilliance.

Ethan Lane can dominate when he snaps as hard as he can.

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Jonathan Washburn

Jonathan Washburn looked tremendous in GA. Long frame, good speeds and always improving. Sky is the limit for Washburn. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Aidan Benjamin was able to snap the ball sub .80 and many occasions. Strong and athletic Long Snapper.

Holden Caspersen was smooth and consistent. Great form.

Mack Gresham is an athletic Long Snapper with very quick hands and a good attitude.

Rocco Underwood was extremely impressive and might have the most potential of any Long Snapper in his class. Watch this kid at VEGAS XXXII in May.

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!

You can see the full finals video with Jude Pedrozo, Tyler Shaw, Toby Davidson, Brendan Beattie, Pat Szczesniak and Brad George below…

Recap of the AZ Spring Camp (3/25/18)

Rubio Long Snapping Sr. Instructor Casey Hales traveled to AZ on March 25th, 2018 to lead the highly anticipated Spring Regional Camp.

Rubio Long Snapping will continue traveling the country this spring Instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following AZ, Rubio Long Snapping will head to IL on 04/07, then GA & TX leading up to the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXII on May 12th-13th, 2018.

Long Snappers from AZ, TX, CO, CA, KS,  & IL all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the AZ Camp…

Looking at the days results, I was most impressed by the steady progression of this group. From where we started in the morning session, to where we ended in Camp Finals, it is evident that every Rubio Long Snapper achieved new personal bests or found new techniques that will play a key role in their development moving forward.

This Group of Rubio Long Snappers rose to the occasion all snapping their best at the end of the day.

Camp Champion Dustin Inness and Instructor Casey Hales

The Overall Camp Champion was Dustin Inness (accuracy) and Ryan Jurcak (Speed). Dustin seemed to have this sort of quiet confidence all day with a slight smirk that never left his face. Keys to his success – terrific attitude, he paced himself well not snapping too many balls before competition, and most definitely built momentum throughout the day and snapped better and better as the pressure mounted crushing RSI testing and receiving a 2 seed in the Finalists Bracket. Ryan Jurcak snapped like a man possed to do one thing, snap the ball as hard as possible. Very raw talent here with a little form work will be on his way to great things.

The Speed competition late in the day had the more .75 snaps than the entire day combined.

Jurcak, Hudak, and DeRosier who were all dipping down into the .68-.72 range consistently.

Far an above the most fun and competitive group I have see in a while. Additional standouts include Bryce Felt, Dustin Inness, Declan Capposola and Joe Kelly.

Live Snapping Champions – Hudak, and DeRosier stole the show with their consistency in live punt and pat drills. Both looked like machines, snapping pearl after pearl without loosing focus.

A couple of key take aways from our film session, remember “don’t think about the distance.” Remind yourself first of the form and technique that will be your guide to harnessing your full power. Flexibility was a huge theme today.

Athletes who demonstrated exceptional  footwork and speed down field: Jurcak, Headberg, Joe Kelly, and Trevor Heid,

Ryan Jurcaz

Class of 2018

Ryan Jurcaz- Ryan showed true strength an raw ability to snap the ball well under .75, to .70. Ryan dominated the speed competition and if he starts to lock down his spiral…watch out! He is someone I would want to watch. Quick on his feet and fast downfield. He has a D1 Frame now and is close to being great. Need to focus on balance and tighten up release point to achieve his full power. If you start and finish with your weight back, and can fall back on heels he will only improve accuracy and speed.

Charles DeRosier – Flat out showed up today! Great all around performance. Easily one of the top snappers at the camp. Had one of the Top RSI Scores with 22.37. When you get set, it is is glorious.  Reminder Be confident every time. Snap it as hard as he can everytime. Big things ahead for DeRosier.

Class of 2019

Ethan Hudak

Ethan Hudak – One of the top snappers of the day! Form is air tight. Really like how quick his hands are and how he uses his low center of gravity to unlock more power. Hudak has a good athletic build, and size. Highest RSI Total with a score of 46.58

Dustin Inness – Well rounded snapper with above average athleticism. Really came into his own late in the day and surged to the top of the accuracy and speed competitions.

Nathan Headberg – Made a huge jump in overall RSI testing with 25.61 finishing in the Top 6 and finished in the Finals again Inness and took 2nd Place Overall in Target Competition.

Class of 2020

Bryce Felt

Bryce Felt: Smooth form and lighting quick hands helped this Rubio Snapper Consistently dip into the .75 range throughout the day, Bryce owned accuracy drills and live snapping like a Champion. Continue to remind yourself to get set and trust yourself with your speed and power. The sky is the limit for this one

AJ Laux – Big Frame – Get Set, stay square after the snap (don’t look back at your snap!!! and you will be better every time you snap moving forward

Mitch Carmer – Stood out to me with his quick hands and tight spiral. When he is compact with his arms diving through he dominates.

NOTABLES: Trevor Heid and Dominic Duggan

Class of 2021

Declan Cappasola

Declan Cappasola – Beautiful spiral and excellent form for this maturing young snapper. Cappasola really dominated speed drills and competition finishing in the .75 group finalists. He continued to turn heads as his confidence grew throughout the day. Big key for him, get set and really dive through to tap into your top speed overtime.

Grant Sands – Explosive Long Snapper with a long frame. Excellent spiral and power. Avoid hoping and work on sliding more balanced with a hard pop slide and leg lock out.

Will Mastler – Top of my list for Most Improved during the Rubio Long Snapping Spring AZ Camp. One of the most determined, coachable, and confident young snappers in the class of 2021.

Top RSI Scores:

  1. Ethan Hudak 46.58
  2. Dustin Inness 33.33
  3. Ryan Jurcak 30.14
  4. Winden Trimble
  5. Nathan Headberg
  6. Charles DeRosier 22.37
    1. Next closest score *Bryce Felt with 22.22

Very impressed with this groups overall skill level and work ethic.
