TX PosterThe rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in TX on March 15th!

Champion Aaron Blaylock

Champion Aaron Blaylock

Long Snappers came out from FL, IA, CA, MO, MS, CO, AR, KS, NE, LA and TX to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Next ranking opportunities will be at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camps in NC on March 28TH and GA on March 29th.

The overall winner of the camp was Aaron Blaylock. Blaylock came on very strong in the end and was snapping with a great deal of confidence. Very proud of how far he has come in the past year.


Boudreaux, Tyler

  •   Tyler Boudreaux – He is a very good size and has a nice, solid frame.    When he is on, he is really on. His form is exceptional and he needs to    realize it by snapping full speed all of the time. Consistent, great snaps  will help him a ton in the long run; no more waves of brilliance. I just to  see one dominant snap after another. THIS KID HAS POTENTIAL.


Eatherly, Geron

  •  Geron Eatherly -He could easily be the most accurate and consistent Long Snapper in his class. Need to see him lower his butt just a tad more and make his hands a bit quicker. Should be solely focused on winning VEGAS XXVI and getting to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Both goals are easily obtainable. VERY good kid and will make a college coach really happy in the future.
  •  Greg Royal – He has a great frame and is one of the smoothest Long  Snappers in his class. Royal needs to make sure he follows through and  snaps the ball with full power on  all punt snaps. His form is good and he needs to trust it. He has VERY  high potential. Keep a very close eye  on him at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Parker Robinson – He is built strong and uses his power well. I would love to see him lock down his spiral  and focus on getting his eyes through quickly at all times. Parker is always improving and should be looked  at on the weekend of VEGAS XXVI.
  • Logan Klusman –  Klusman is bordering on full domination and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it happen at  VEGAS XXVI. He is big, strong and snaps with great power. He is very athletic. He also needs to make sure  he always follows completely through. His power is very good. Keep a very, very close eye on him for the  next couple of months.
  • Dylan Alexander –  When he snaps as hard as he possibly can, he is tremendous. He has good form and he  needs to trust it and just let the ball go. Dylan makes good use of his whole body when he is snapping the  ball. He is always improving. Athletically, he runs hard but needs to gain some control of his body when he  is going forward and laterally. This kid has a VERY good attitude.
  • Travis Arroyo -STRONG is an understatement. Excellent movement and flexibility for someone his size. When he snaps as hard as he physically can, he is unstoppable. Great attitude and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him win the whole event at VEGAS XXVI. Coming into his own at the right time.
  • Jon Letter – Form is darn near flawless and he is definitely one of those Long Snappers that is always improving. Love to see him snap with full power at all times. He has increased his body size and it (along with his great form) is helping a ton. REALLY want to see him focus on locking down his spiral. The ball is quick but if it has a heavy wobble on it, the punter will have a great deal of difficulty catching the snap. Once spiral is locked down, he will move way up the charts and his speed will increase, my bet is, into the .6s for a punt snap. POTENTIAL.

Pagel, Jake

  • Jake Pagel – Pagel really stepped up his game and dominated the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX. He absolutely explodes when he snaps the ball. There is tons of promise for this Long Snapper from TX. He has great form and lets the ball rip out of the gate. I would keep a VERY close eye on him at VEGAS XXVI. He could easily challenge for the top spot.
  • Reeves Blankenship – Reeves has a great frame and looks like a D1 athlete already at this point and he is only a sophomore. He is big framed and I would like to see him widen out a bit more to make sure he can use all of his frame without being cramped. There are tons of upsides with him. I would keep an eye on him at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jacob Rubenstein – His form is great and he keeps improving. I would love to see his eyes be a little quicker and really explode with his body.  This kid is filled with potential.
  • Caleb Cantrell – Big jump for Caleb and well deserved after what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX. I love his starting form and the way he explodes with his upper body. This kid has power. His form is good. The more he trusts it, the better he will be in the long run. He can dip into the .7s and if he gets his lower half involved I can’t see him not hitting in the .6s by VEGAS XXVI.
  • Chris Clore – He is a large man that has the ability to snap a very quick ball when he just lets it go. Clore’s form is good and he needs to trust it and his strength. He has TONS of potential. He needs to keep himself leaning back, and that will help all aspects of his snapping. I will be looking for athleticism and hard snapping from him at VEGAS XXVI and beyond. Chris has a good attitude.

Notables: Jordan Silver


Edwards, Zach

  •  Zach Edwards – Zach is coming along VERY nicely. His form is looking exceptional and he is already  snapping in the .8s at 15 yards. I would like to see him extend his arms to create more whip. He is  extremely close to already having his legs be fully involved in the process. This kid is dripping with  potential and could be the next great one. Watch him.
  •  John Raines – Raines is built long and has great form already for his age. He really uses his lower half well.  The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he will be. He has TONS of potential and could easily take the  top spot by VEGAS XXVI.
  • Tre Rubio – His form is excellent for his age. He has come a long with his form and is always improving. The bigger and stronger he gets the better he will be. Rubio has tons of potential since he is so coachable. Watch him. His hands are quick. Locking down his spiral will help a ton in the long run.

  • 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 ( 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.
