Recap of the WA Spring Camp (4/24)

SeattleRubio Long Snapping traveled to WA on April 24th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from ID, NV, AZ, OR, WY, CA , AK, CO, WA & Canada to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Jake Gibson (OR, ’17)! Jake caught fire early in the morning and just never let up. Very accurate Long Snapper with great accuracy. He can handle pressure extremely well and he has won himself a free admission to VEGAS!!


James Workman

James Workman

James Workman was the best 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. The future San Jose State Spartan was dominant all day. Ball is VERY tight and he has great accuracy. Love to watch him snap the ball. Very catchable.

  • James Kozachenko was solid all day long in WA. Very athletic Long Snapper with a ball that hovers in the mid .7s.
  • Carter Kragero is built like a brick house and snaps a smooth, catchable ball. Always improving.
  • Greg Royal has very quick hands and is beyond accurate. Great upside.

Notables: Paul Helfrich


Matt Baldeck

Matt Baldeck

Matt Baldeck was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. When he gets set, there is no one that snaps a harder ball. It is not uncommon for him to crack below the .7 barrier. Getting set will be huge for him in VEGAS.

  • Joseph Cotton has tons of upside and is VERY good. Easily could compete for an EVENT ELITE spot. Excellent athlete.
  • Blake Bostwick showed great intensity and is very accurate.
  • Eli Jenkins is very smooth and consistent.
  • Zach Edwards has massive potential.
  • Cody Schwindt has all of the tools to be the real deal

Notables: Jared Bacon, Cody Clements, Calvin Maher, Luke Miller, Zach Jenkins


Kellen Dyer

Kellen Dyer

Kellen Dyer was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. Great under pressure and always improving. Kid is coming along very nicely.

  • Spencer Luce has tons of potential. He is growing like a weed and just looks to keep getting bigger. Strong and powerful. If he can lock down his spiral, he will dominate VEGAS.


Dylan Black was the best 2019 Long Snapper in attendance. Ball is very quick and he is already in the .7s. Locking down his consistency and gaining size will be big for him in the future.

  • James Durr has good size and shows me a lot of potential. Keep a very close eye on Durr.

  • My rankings are NOT done from some mathematical formula.
  • My rankings ARE done by me and only me. That is why they take a good amount of time. (Think of it this way, it takes MONTHS to build a Rolls Royce but only hours to build an average car)
  • My rankings are based off of this blog I wrote about what makes a Long Snapper great.
  • If you would like anything added to your profile page, simply email me ( the information and consider it done.
  • All Long Snappers are ranked after their first fall camp of their freshman year in high school.

A Long Snapper has the ability to adjust their ranking anytime I see them LIVE, not on video.
