Jacob Potter

Jacob Potter was the top overall seed in the finals and was about one inch away from winning the whole thing. He was was snapping with great confidence and he was beyond solid all day long in GA. Kennesaw St. is getting a very good Long Snapper and a great person.

David Demeter looked very good in GA. Kid is a pure athlete that will definitely be a factor on punt coverage in college. Very impressed with his footwork and overall drive. Form is solid and he snaps a quick ball. Good attitude on Demeter

Connor Finnicum did well in GA with his good size and solid form. Ball is accurate and he has the ability to snap in the .7s. Very good upside on size and consistency.


Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley was the overall speed champion of the camp and looked great throughout the day. Excellent frame and he is a true athlete. Ball is crisp and as pure as anyone in the country. He has no problem hitting sub .75 regularly and he is ready for college now.

Jack Hadley came down from NJ with his large, strong frame and was easily one of the most dominant Long Snappers in attendance. Ball is very smooth and on target. Extremely accurate Long Snapper with excellent upside and attitude.

Cade Long was on fire in GA and left absolutely no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Ball is clean and he has put on some good weight over the last couple of months. Easily one of the most consistent and accurate Long Snappers in his class.

Clay James came up from Florida and left no doubt he was on a mission to show his dominance. He was snapping with a purpose and I loved watching him all day. Body is thickening up very well and he was inches away from being crowned champion. Great attitude and always improving.

Bryce Bouwens was accurate and consistent with good upside in GA. Body is thick and he is strong. We he snaps with full power and gets his eyes all the way through, he can dominate.

Dillon Hayes is one of the most accurate Long Snappers in his class and can handle pressure as well as anyone else in the country. As he continues to gain strength, he will dominate his class.

Maddie Golden has a very solid quick snap motion with a powerful ball. Love to see focus on consistency of speed to improve his ranking. Works hard and he is always improving.

Evan Dvorchik has good size for a Long Snapper and he can snap the ball into the low .7s and even high .6s when he is on. The more athletic he becomes, the higher he will move up the rankings. Great attitude and he works yards.

Trey Corley showed great promise at the camp in GA. Body is excellent and the potential for Corley is off the charts. Speeding up his hands will make his ball quicker out of the gate and increase the overall speed of his ball.

Payton Dunagan has incredible flexibility and hovers right in the middle of the .7s. His athleticism is solid and he is always improving.

TJ Harvey came out and had a great day in GA. Ball is smooth and powerful. Very fast Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s. Excellent attitude.

Quentin Skinner

Quentin Skinner is a Long Snapper with great size and power that can hit in the .6s at 15 yards. He could snap in college right now with his frame and accuracy. Looking down his consistency and dominating a camp is the last step for Skinner.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Smooth, accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has extremely minimal wasted movement. Lefty that is absolutely incredible when his spiral is on and tight.

JC Vega is a physically fit Long Snapper that can bring a ton of heat on the ball. Moves well on his feet and is quick with his hands. Very good potential on Vega

Christian Johnstone is a tall, athletic Long Snapper that is right on the cusp of greatness. He can hit in the .7s and looks to dominate VEGAS 30 this May. Keep a very close eye on Johnstone.

Brendan Beattie has an extremely fast and powerful ball that rips back to the punter. Ball is accurate and consistent. Locking down his spiral will push him way up the rankings.

William Wagner is a thick and strong Long Snapper that snaps a powerful ball. He did really well during the speed competition and was impressive.
