Recap Article & Video of the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in IL

Long Snappers came out on March 30 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in IL from IL, OH, IN, MS, MD, IA, KY, MI, TN, NY, MO, PA, NJ and NC  to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field, had a film and classroom session, a recruiting seminar and ended the day with a competition with Rubio present and running the camp. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on

Whitehouse, HarleyThe overall winner of the camp was Harley Whitehouse (MO, ’15). Harley had a great day and handled the pressure very well. He was snapping hard and with a lot of confidence. Really came on when he needed to in order to lock up the victory. Love to see him get his spiral locked down and a bit more speed but he is well on his way. Expect to see great things from Harley in Vegas!

TOP 2014 Long Snappers…

  • Wyatt Pfeifer was flat out dominant all day. The Western Michigan commit left no doubt he is worth of a scholarship with smooth and accurate snaps all day long in Chicago.
  • Mitch Hardy showed, yet again, great improvement. He is snapping a very accurate ball and has a lot of confidence. Always getting better and overflowing with an amazing attitude. The coaches will love him at Arkansas St.
  • Andrew Robinson is a VERY quick learner that shows great poise every time I see him at a camp. Body is very solid and he is accurate.

Other notable 2014 Long Snappers: Will Henrichs

TOP 2015 Long Snappers…

  • Ben Makowski was easily the top 2015 Long Snapper in attendance. He is a massive man with great power and determination. If he reaches through well, he is easily as good as anyone in the country. Keep a very close eye on him in Vegas. This kid is making a very big name for himself.
  • Tyler Griffiths looked wonderful at the camp. He is built very well with great athleticism and an excellent attitude. He is gaining a lot of confidence and should make serious move in rankings if he keeps this going in Vegas.
  • Matt Foley came out from CA and did well all day. His form is excellent and he is creating a lot of speed with his legs.
  • Hunter Varga is gaining confidence and it is paying off. He is a very consistent and accurate due to his very good form.

Other notable 2015 Long Snappers: Carson Vey, Jake Knight, Brendan Lowery, Jeremy Ashworth and Jackson Mahorney 

TOP 2016 Long Snappers…

  • John Shannon had a good day in Chicago. He easily snaps at D1 speeds and it isn’t even close. His frame is very solid and he is strong. The more he locks down his spiral, the better he will be. Hard worker and coachable.
  • Steven Wirtel shows a lot of promise and is well on his way to greatness. He might just have the most potential of anyone in his class. Sky is the limit for Wirtel. Keep a very close eye on him in Vegas.
  • Phillip Thomas had a great day in Chicago. He has improved a ton and just keeps getting better. His form is very good and he is starting to get a lot of confidence and that will pay off big time in the end. Great day for Phillip

Other notable 2016 Long Snappers: Paul Monaco, Brad Robinson

TOP 2017 Long Snappers…

  • Nate Durham was wonderful all day long in Chicago. He is large for his age and already has great form. I am very impressed with how well he listens and always is improving.
  • Joe Calcagno did well in Chicago. He has a great attitude and his form is looking solid. Good day for him and his future is bright.
  • Shiloh Mast impressed me all day in Chicago. He is snapping the ball hard and with a ton of confidence. Keep an eye on him.
