Happy Ranksgiving to the Class of 2018 Long Snappers

VEGAS XXV FinalsThe rankings are completed for ALL 2018 Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping National Event: VEGAS XXV!

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

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

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

  • Ross Reiter was tremendous all weekend at VEGAS XXV. Very strong for his age and snaps the ball with good power. Love his attitude.
  • Kyle Petrucci He is built EXTREMELY long.  His has outstanding athleticism for his size. He moves with purpose and also tackled very well.  One to watch.
  • Roen McCullough He looks and snaps like someone three years older than he actually is.  Roen ept very good control of his body and tackled well at the agility and tackling station. He has TONS and TONS of potential.
  • Ryan Walsh His form is excellent and he is snapping with confidence. Ryan needs to make sure he locks down his spiral so the ball is smooth and easy to catch. Walsh has a good attitude and is always improving.
  • Joseph Ramos He is a solid Long Snapper with great size already for his age.  By VEGAS XXVI I want to see lighter and smoother moves on the agility and tackling station. He is a good kid with tons of potential.
  • Jerrett Key Key has a good frame for his age and snaps a solid ball. His snap is tight and shows good accuracy. He is a very good snapper for his age. He broke down and tackled very well at the agility section of the weekend.
  • John Raines He has exceptional form and snaps with a lot of power. Raines has very impressive speed for his age and tons of potential.  He listens well so he could shatter the charts. Keep a very close eye on him throughout high school.
  • Brendan Watson He is easily one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He moved very well on his feet. His form is very good and he does a solid job of using his whole body throughout the snapping motion. Watch him this spring and at VEGAS XXVI.


  • Quentin Skinner  He is easily the best middle school Long Snapper in the country. This kid is a monster.
  • JC Vega He has VERY good starting form and looks good snapping the ball. Keep a very close eye on this one. He could be tops of his class quickly.
  • Simon Samarzich He has very good form and is an excellent Long Snapper for his age.

Notables: Gabriel Cervantes, Hunter Becker, Noah Turner, & Dillon Hayes


  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target
  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.
