Recap of the TX Fall Camp (11/18/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on November 18th, 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!

Luke Rizzo, Rubio and John Luke Roberts

Long Snappers from CO, LA, TX, KS, CA, MS, OK, TN, GA, 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 Luke Rizzo (speed) and John Luke Roberts (overall).

The finals round matchups were Eli Chism, Luke Rizzo, Blake Hooker, John Farris, John Luke Roberts, David Medrano. You can see the full finals video below….


Luke Rizzo

Luke Rizzo was absolutely phenomenal all day long. There is no doubt he is ready for the next level right now. Built very well with a great physique and absolutely rips the ball back to the punter. His snaps are at college speeds right now and as good as anyone in the country.

Braedy Wilson is very long and was excellent all day. I absolutely love when he snaps the ball hard. Going to be a great college Long Snapper.

Brandon Oldham is smooth, consistent, thick and has all the tools to do very well at the next level.

David Medrano has good size and was hot all day. Improved a ton in the last year and looks to keep heading in the right direction.

Cruz Heath was snapping fire all day and runs like the wind.

Zac Bland was smooth and consistent all day long. Great attitude.

Brayden Chandler has a great physique and continues to improve. When his ball is tight, he is tremendous.

John Farris showed excellent accuracy and consistency all day. Love his overall attitude.

Joshua Smetzer might have been the smoothest Long Snapper in the camp.

Notables: Garrett Townsend, William Parsons, Cayden Sparks, Chase Thompson, Jacob Trim.


Grant Reid

Grant Reid was impressive all day with extremely consistent snaps. He hovered right at .75 throughout the whole day. Great attitude and is always improving. When he is on, he is very on and he is starting to fully lock into his greatness.

John Luke Roberts was on fire all day. Love his frame and his upside. Long frame that will be able to put on some great weight over the next couple of years. Keep a very close eye on this kid.

Dylan Wiltcher was throwing heat in TX and left no doubt he has the ability to snap for a long time. Attitude is great and he can easily hit sub .78

Eli Chism is built well and snaps a very powerful ball.

Bryce Felt is smooth, consistent and always in the mix. Felt is just a flat out good Long Snapper that snaps a great, catchable ball.

Valen Penn has good upside and is always improving. Smooth and accurate Long Snapper.

Blake Hooker was a little banged up from a car accident and still made it to the finals. That is amazing and shows just how good Hooker is.

John Bergeron is a good and accurate Long Snapper that can dominate when he leads with his elbows and drive his elbows.

Ethan Lane is a big and powerful Long Snapper that is going to crush everyone with some slight tweaks. Watch this kid!

Notables: Jarrett Callier, Phillip Bourque, Beau Branch, Jackson McFarland


Garrett Wilson

Garrett Wilson was snapping with good confidence and lots of power. He was hitting well below .80 all day long and was impressive from start to finish.

Oden Pierce is one of the top Long Snappers in his class and might have the most potential of anyone in his class. Great frame.

Eliot Gottsegen was snapping with good poise and speed. Good improvement.

Ben Wheless snaps with good power and I like his attitude.

Notables: Ben Pipes

Briggs Magee

Briggs Magee is smooth and a very efficient Long Snapper. When he gets his whole body moving in the right direction, he can easily hit sub .80. Briggs has all of the tools to flat out dominate his class for a long time. Great upside.

Joe Miller looked great yet again. This GA Long Snapper came out to TX and left no doubt he is one of the best in his class. Great pop for his age and can snap with nice power.

Cory Reddell is a big and smooth Long Snapper with a lot of power.
