Recap of the WA Fall Camp (10/23/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Washington on October 23rd, 2016 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from WA, ID, OR, CA & LA all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Matt Baldeck (ID, ’17)! Baldeck was on fire all day long and was throwing some severe heat out in the Northwest. His snaps are VERY powerful and he easily get in the low .7s to high .6s. He dominated the speed competition and almost won the accuracy competition. Confidence is high right now and he is making a solid name for himself across the country. Powerful and thick frame. His victory in WA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can actually watch the finals between Matt Baldeck and Kellen Dyer below from the live feed on the Rubio Long Snapping Periscope.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be CA on October 30th, followed by NC (11/20), TX (12/4), AZ (12/11) and GA (12/18)


Jake Gibson

Top 2017 Long Snappers
Jake Gibson was very solid in WA. His form is excellent and he is nails under pressure. Nothing rattles the kid and he uses all of his body really well to gain some good speed.

Zack Jenkins did really well in WA. Ball is on target and he is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class. Widening out on his stance and his waistline will help a ton. LOTS of upside on Zach.

Eli Jenkins is dripping with potential and I love when he lets the ball fly out of his hands. Really has a good upside.

Cody Clements is a large Long Snapper with a strong frame and tons of potential. Confidence will be huge as we head into Vegas.

Notables: Brock Olive, Calvin Maher and Braden Otto

Kellen Dyer

Kellen Dyer

Kellen Dyer was VERY solid in WA. Ball is accurate and he has some great consistency. Needs to make sure he quickens up his hands and legs. No knee hitch will equal the ball in the .7s. Really impressed with his overall work ethic and attitude.

Spencer Luce is overflowing with potential and could easily dominate his class with more accuracy and consistency. CONFIDENCE is going to be huge for him as we head into VEGAS. This could be off the charts good.

Notable: Grayson Broussard

JJ Lindsay

JJ Lindsay

JJ Lindsay showed me some great things in WA. Love his form and his overall attitude. Built with long legs and he is already using them well.

Dean Lau is an incredible athlete that destroys all athletic tests I throw his way. MAJOR factor in punt coverage as we move into VEGAS and beyond. Size and strength will be huge for him as he continues through the process.

James Durr showed me a lot of potential. He is a smooth Long Snapper with good upside. Built well and I like his attitude.

Top 2020, 2021 & 2022 Long Snappers

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins has excellent form and showed he could, and should, win a Rubio Long Snapping camp very soon. Kam is an extremely accurate Long Snapper that will continue to get better with more strength and athleticism. Snaps the ball as well as anyone I have seen at his age. Overall speed on the ball and his legs will be key in dominating his class throughout the years.

Cameron Landes has a ton of potential and could stay in the top five of his class for all four years of high school. Built REALLY long with a frame that can put on about fifty pounds over the next couple years. Ball is smooth and accurate. Moves really well on his feet.

Alec Eckert is a very long athlete for the class of 2021. Great frame and dripping with potential. Making sure he works on his flexibility and not dragging the football back will help a ton in the long run. He will be as good as he wants to be with his Long Snapping.

Anna DeCaprio was VERY impressive for her first Rubio Long Snapping camp. She has great explosion and an excellent spiral for her age. Widening out her stance and getting her hips straight will help a ton. Great first camp.
