Champion Dylan Castro

Champion Dylan Castro

The overall camp champion was Dylan Castro (IL, ’17)! Dylan is one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in the country. He continues to work and it is very apparent. Handles pressure really well and his body is coming along nicely. He is well on his way to greatness and I love his attitude.

You can actually watch the finals between Dylan Castro and Zach Appio HERE on Periscope. Expect to see some more videos like this from Rubio Long Snapping.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

zach-appio5742Zach Appio was excellent all day in IL. He won the speed competition by catching a groove at the right time. Excellent attitude and he moves really well on his feet.

Joe Calcagno is a large Long Snapper with very good power and I love his form. Kid is right on the cusp of greatness. By January, he should have his body completely modified and ready to be a college Long Snapper.

Nate Durham is a VERY smooth and accurate Long Snapper that has great form. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he will be. Great kid.

Devin Noth is one of the most athletic and smart Long Snappers in his class. Listens really well and sucks up everything like a sponge. Getting fully down and set will make him one of the greats.

John Davis showed great things all day. Form is good and when he lets the ball fly, he is off the charts.

Matt Hembrough continues to grow with his body and his snapping. Confidence is going to be a huge factor as he moves towards the next level. Tons of potential.

Marshall Coluzzi is a very solid Long Snapper that is smooth, accurate and consistent. Moves well on his feet.

Cole Stewart has a good frame, a solid spiral and I love his accuracy. Adjusting the prior movement with his hands will help his timing a ton.

Chaz Satnan is a monster of a man that never stops improving. Starting to really hit stride and coming along nicely. Tons of upside.

Shiloh Mast has a great form, a solid body and tremendous attitude. Getting his butt down and snapping with full power will move him way up the charts.

NOTABLES: Mario Rodrigues, Scott Mullenix, Bryson Haft, Kyle Eckelberg, Benji Gormley
