Recap of the GA Fall Camp (12/2/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on December 2nd, 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 TX, AL, GA, FL, LA, MS, TN & NJ 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.

Skinner, Rubio, Shimko

The champion of the camp was Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner. Mad Dog was simply amazing all day long. He has always had good consistency, but this time, he was great. It was like watching a machine snap the ball back to the punter and/or holder. Every single snap was the same. His body is tremendous, he moves well on his feet and he even helps out the younger kids. LSU got a great one.

The overall speed champion was Joe Shimko. Shimko, an NC State commit, left no doubt he snaps one of the most powerful balls in the country. It is almost shocking when you see just how fast his ball gets back to the punter. In true Shimko fashion, he got better as the day went on. Others get tired, Shimko gets better. Kid is a flat out stud.

As you know, at every Rubio Long Snapping camp, the Long Snappers are tested to receive an RSI score. This is the most accurate and fair way to test a Long Snapper. Here are the RSI Scores from the GA Camp…..

Starting this spring, all Rubio Long Snapping camps will feature a shortened version of the VEGAS testing format. Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Once you register, for a Rubio Long Snapping camp, a full, detailed explanation will be in your confirmation email.
Each Long Snapper will now be tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target with one snap per section instead of three. Meaning, you get one regular snap, one block left, one block right, and one speed for both punt snaps and short snaps to total eight snaps. Therefore, at the end of testing, the RSI will be tripled to reveal the participants’ RSI for that particular camp. Trust me, I do get that a Regional Camp RSI will not be the exact same as a VEGAS Event RSI for several reasons (length of test, pressure of Vegas, etc.) but it will pretty darn close and definitely fair.
The RSI is an excellent way for a participant to truly show how good of a Long Snapper they are as it balances the accuracy along with the speed of the ball, plus it will show how well the Long Snapper grows through each and every Rubio Long Snapping camp. Also, the RSI‘s will be posted on each Long Snappers profile after every camp they attend. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.
RSI‘s can range from zero to basically 80 (if a Long Snapper was to get a score 48 points and averaged .65 on their punt snaps). I believe the highest I have ever encountered a 60.61 by Kasey Kelleher at VEGAS XXIX. The 12 finalists at VEGAS XXIX all had above 50’s on their RSI and that was a record. A 30 is usually pretty darn solid.
Please Note: The RSI is not completely how your Rubio Long Snapping ranking will be calculated as there are many factors to being a great Long Snapper. The main things that each Long Snapper will be ranked on are the following:
-Speed (should be less than .75 for a 15 yard punt snap)
-Accuracy (all snaps should be in The Rubio Zone)
-Consistency (a college coach is going to want to see how consistent you are with your speed…if you can snap a .75, your snaps should be right around there, well, consistently)
-Mentality (how well do you handle pressure)
-Athleticism (do you move well or does it look like you are in pain when moving)
-Size (an ideal Long Snapper would be about 6’3″ and 235)
-Spiral (does the ball look pretty, slice through the wind and easy to catch)
-Blocking (will you be able to withstand a major college rush) If you have ever been to a Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Event, you know that one of the main parts of competition day is when each Long Snapper gets tested on The Rubio Long Snapping Target.
