Recap of the IL Summer Camp (7/9/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on July 9th, 2018 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, GA, IL, SC (Top Gun Camp), CA (College, TOP 12, Underclassmen Invitational) and TX!

Long Snappers from KS, IL, GA WA, CA, AZ, TN, MO, IN, OH, MN & MI 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 champion of the camp was David Boan (2020, IL). David was actually the speed AND overall champion with powerful snaps and getting hot at the right time. Boan grows by the hour and has a very smooth snapping motion where his ball tends to pick up speed along the way. Tremendous talent with great potential.

The finals round matchups were Jackson Worthen (53.25), David Boan (53.35), Caden Bolz (50.67), Brad George (46.67), Luke Elmore (37.04), Jaden Mueller (33.33).  You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Jude Pedrozo

Jude Pedrozo was tremendous out in IL with extremely smooth snaps, a solid body and athleticism that shows me he can be a true factor on the punt coverage team. Form is good and the harder he snaps, the better he looks on the field.

Caden Bolz came out from KS and left no doubt he is one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in the country. Strong based, good balance and has the ability to rip the ball back to the punter. Should be fun with him at the TOP 12 camp.

Brad George has good form and snaps a crisp, powerful ball back to the punter. Very consistent Long Snapper. Each snap looks the same over and over. Locking down his spiral is going to be huge for him.

Aidan Hall was moving well on his feet and was outstanding when he led with his elbows and snapped with full power.

Joey Wilson is very athletic and can get the ball out of the gate quickly. Great potential.

Jack Schmitz is extremely athletic, has a great frame and is dripping with potential

Nathan Tokar is thick and powerful with a smooth snapping motion. Getting his eyes through will help a ton to make him ready for the next level.

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

David Boan

David Boan was the overall champion of the camp and crushed it all day long. Massive frame that will be able to put some excellent weight on over the next couple of days.

Christo Kelly has a great, thick frame and snaps the ball with solid power. Tight spiral and when he is on, he is very on. Kid is a stud.

Jackson Worthen was very smooth and snapping with great power throughout his whole body. His form is absolutely gorgeous.

Cody White was snapping pearls all day and his ball gets faster every time I see him. Powerful Long Snapper

Will Halkyard might be the smoothest Long Snapper in his class. It is almost poetic to watch him snap the ball.

Jared Lawrence came out and was very impressive with snap speeds and attitude.

Tom O’Keefe is a big Long Snapper with a tight spiral and great upside.

Notables: Nelson Pipes, Hunter Schrock,

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Nick Walker

Nick Walker looked outstanding in IL. Has the frame of a college Long Snapper right now and he still has several years of high school left. Ball is easily under .80. The sky is the limit for Nick.

Andrew Boan is built long with a frame that can put on some good weight over the next couple of years. Uses all of his whole body extremely well and is ball is very fast for his size.

Sam Long was very impressive in IL with a great frame and solid snaps.

Isaiah Hayse came out to IL and looked very sharp for his first camp. Great frame and upside.

RSI Scores from the IL Spring 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 is a 65.22 by Ross Reiter at The Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in AZ. 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.

Long Snappers from IL, IN, MO, MN, OH, IA, UT, MI, NC, SC, WI, NV, SD, and KY all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of long snapping. 

The overall camp champion was was James Rosenberry (OH, ’18). Rosenberry is a very consistent Long Snapper that can hit in the high .6s and low .7s. Ball is smooth, crisp and very accurate. He handles pressure well and left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country. His victory earned him a free admission to VEGAS 30 on May 13-14!

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Matt Hembrough

Matt Hembrough was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was absolutely ripping the ball back to the punter and his body is starting to thicken up. Oklahoma State got a good one in Hembrough as he is definitely looking ready for the college level at this point.

Nate Durham was smooth, consistent and showed great accuracy throughout the day in IL. Frame is solid and he has great form. Absolutely love to watch Nate snap when he is putting full power on the ball.

Dylan Castro is beyond smooth and left no doubt he is ready for the college level with his snapping. He has a great attitude and uses his body well. Very good upside for Castro over the next couple of years.

Shiloh Mast did very well in IL and could have ended up winning the whole thing! Attitude is excellent and so is his form. Uses his whole body well and snaps a very smooth ball.

Mario Rodrigues has improved a ton and looks ready for the next level. Form is good and he does a great job of being consistent with each and every snap.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Ron Gaines is a massive human being that snaps a smooth ball and uses his body well. Ball hits the punter with good power and he has a solid spiral. Very good attitude and upside on Gaines.

Ross Hinders is a great Long Snapper with excellent form. He can hit in the .7s and he has solid accuracy. Quiet but does all of his talking with his snapping. He is going to do well in college.

Jesse Hooper came out from UT and did really well. He is snapping with a lot of confidence and the ball is flying well to the punter. He is a very thick and strong Long Snapper with a lot of upside.

Matt Tokos looked very sharp in IL and proved his trip from NV was worth it. He definitely impressed me throughout the day with his very quick hands and great attitude.

Michael Vinson is a large Long Snapper with a good frame and snap. Using his body well and can snap consistently in the mid .7s. Lot of upside on Vinson.

Jack Halper is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in the country. The kid can flat out fly down field and will easily be a factor on punt coverage. Consistent snapper in the mid to high .7s.

Zach Drevno is thick, strong and showed good promise. Being a bit quicker and making sure he is always going back will help in the long run. Very good attitude.

Charles DeRosier came out from CA and showed great promise. Consistent and smooth Long Snapper that hovers in the high .7s. Good attitude and potential

Turner Pallissard is an athletic Long Snapper with a good frame that can get the ball back to the punter well. Smooth on his feet and with his snapping.

Brad George was on fire and absolutely ripping the ball back to the punters. He had no problem hitting in the low .7s and even .6s at times. George was snapping the ball so hard it was almost shocking…in a good way. Keep an eye on him at VEGAS 30.

Jude Pedrozo was very solid all day in Chicago. Good frame, great attitude and excellent form means Jude is definitely one to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.

David O’Keefe had very quick hands and really got the ball out of the gate well. Thick frame and strong throughout. Very good upside on O’Keefe.

Mike Wojciechowski has great form and is snapping with some solid confidence. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he does. Over the next two years, he will make his high school coach very happy.
