Recap Article of the IL Camp (11/22)

Chicago_RubioRubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on December 22nd for their fall camp. The camp was filled great Long Snappers on a below freezing day….but Long Snappers were inside so it was balmy:)

Long Snappers came out from IL, MI, OH, IN, PA, IA, NE, MN, WI, MA, UT, MO, KY, SD and even CA to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp and top 2017 Long Snapper was Kasey Kelleher (OH, ’17)! Kasey was on fire all day snapping absolute bullets to the punter. Kasey continues to be one of the most consistent and powerful Long Snappers in his class. He almost won the NJ camp a couple weeks prior. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXVII. Kid is a stud!


Bradley Robinson was the best 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He is incredibly smooth and accurate with a nice, catchable ball. Passes an eyeball test quickly and has a great attitude.

  • Phillip Thomas keeps improving and heading in the right direction. Smooth Long Snapper with unlimited potential.

  • Paul Monaco never stops improving and is making a great name for himself as one of the top Long Snappers in his class.
  • Brad Sorenson passes an eyeball test quickly and has great raw power.
  • Camden Boyle has very good speed and will dominate once his eyes get all the way through on a very consistent basis.
  • Ethan Tabel is a smooth, accurate Long Snapper with a good base. Increasing his speed by leading with his elbows will be key.

Notables: Jake Yelich, Seth Swanson, Ben Dillion, Riley John
