Recap of the WA Fall Camp (10/21/18)

Gately, Rubio and Lindsay

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on October 21st, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this fall with stops in NC, NJ, WA, CA, TX, GA, AZ, IL with everything leading into the biggest and best Long Snapping event in the world, VEGAS XXXIII in January!

Long Snappers from OR, WA, CA, AZ, ID & Canada all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The champions of the camp were Gavin Gately (speed) and JJ Lindsay (overall). Gately came on very strong in the competition and was really consistent. Lindsay was hot all day and absolutely dominate during the finals. He has trimmed up his frame and looked athletic. Smooth Long Snapper with a tight spiral that handles pressure really well. Great camp for Lindsay!

The finals round matchups were Walker Hardan, Alex Sheehan, JJ Lindsay, Gavin Gately, Cole McCutcheon and Jackson Plieth.

You can see the full finals video below….


JJ Lindsay

JJ Lindsay was obviously great all day with consistent snaps that took him all the way to the championship! Smooth Long Snapper that has done a great job trimming up his body and increasing his overall athleticism.

James Durr was snapping a smooth and accurate ball all day long. Good attitude and always moving in the right direction.

Josiah Hirsch is a big and strong Long Snapper that can be leader on and off the field. Form is excellent and he has done a great job of improving his power with his punt snapping.

Gavin Gately has a great frame and was snapping a really quick ball. He ended up winning the speed competition with snaps consistently in the .7s. Upside is off the charts.

Walker Hardan is big, powerful and scored the highest RSI of the whole camp. I absolutely love when Walker snaps with full power and follows all the way through.

Alex Sheehan is an accurate and consistent Long Snapper that has all of the tools to be one of the best in his class.

Shaydon Farmer is a raw Long Snapper that is a tremendous athlete. He puts it all together and he can dominate as a Long Snapper in college.


Tommy Sullivan

Tommy Sullivan showed great improvement in WA. He looked like a completely different Long Snapper and I just saw him in July. Ball was moving quick and he is snapping with great power.

Bryce Felt has a great form and is snapping with all of his body. Excellent attitude and he is moving well on his feet.

Cameron Landes is a super long and moves well on his feet. Absolutely love when he snaps with full power and just lets the ball loose.

Jack Laurin has a great attitude and a very accurate snap. Big fan of his overall snapping ability.

Ben Shumock might have the most upside of anyone in the 2020 class. When he is on, he is VERY on. Athletic Long Snapper that could easily do this in college if he puts it all together.

Dakota Lepine showed me some very quick hands and solid athleticism. Always improving.

Cole McCutcheon made it all the way to the finals and was inches from winning the whole thing. He shows good pop and can handle pressure well.

Grayson Pibal is very long and has a great frame to put some good weight on. Easily the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. Massive upside.

Davis Salom is massive, strong and powerful. When he drives his head through and reaches all the way back, he easily dominate his class.

NOTABLE: Bryce Smithson


Luke Basso

Luke Basso was a smooth Long Snapper with one of the best attitudes of anyone at the class. Upside is off the charts. Great kid.

Carson Jensen was an athletic Long Snapper with good upside.

Silas Moreau has some very quick hands and a good attitude.

Jackson Plieth

Jackson Plieth made it to the finals which is very impressive for a freshman (or any class for that matter). Form is excellent and he can already snap the ball in the .8s. Excellent attitude.

Blake Gorski is a good Long Snapper with a great frame and has improved a ton over the past year. Smooth Long Snapper with excellent form.

Anna DeCaprio is strong, powerful and has quick hands. When she gets fully set and gets her back flat, she can really get the ball back to the punter with some good quickness.
