Chris-Rubio-2Rubio Long Snapping is, by far, the biggest and best resource for Long Snappers in the country. Offering the best instruction and most exposure in the world. Rubio Long Snapping can help you to become the best snapper you can be!

In just 12 years, Chris Rubio, President and Owner of Rubio Long Snapping, has become the #1 Long Snapping instructor in the country and the go-to man when a college coach needs a Long Snapper. Colleges from across the country rely on “Rubio’s” word day in and day out on who the best Long Snappers are in the country. Rubio Long Snapping has assisted in over 300 Long Snappers earning FULL SCHOLARSHIPS to major colleges and universities just for Long Snapping and many into the NFL as well.

Article & Rankings for the Class of 2015 Long Snappers at VEGAS XXVI!

The rankings are completed for the 2015 Long Snappers that participated at VEGAS XXVI!

Long Snappers in this class came out from AZ, CA, OH, CT and NJ to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Be sure to check out all of the photos on the Rubio Long Snapping Facebook page HERE

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Carson Vey (headed to Penn) showed complete dominance all weekend. Truly a tremendous athlete that could play multiple positions in college.
  • Matt Foley was filled with confidence and could have won the whole thing. BYU got a good one in Foley.
  • Harrison Hoffman looked beyond smooth and ready for the next level. Very impressed with his improvement.
  • Cody Block is, easily, one of the most athletic Long Snappers coming out the JC ranks. He is able to play right now and should get picked up soon. Hard worker.

Notables: Hunter Drzik, Darren Diffee, Patrick Williams and Richard Wilcox.

IMG_0629.JPGKEY POINTS:

  • My rankings are NOT done just from The Rubio Target
  • 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 (Rubio@RubioLongSnapping.com) 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.

For the profiles section, simply go to RubioLongSnapping.com. click PLAYER PROFILES, click which class, click LONG SNAPPERS and find your name.

Recap Article and Video of the 12th Annual Spring Event in Las Vegas

Long Snappers came out on May 10-11 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in Las Vegas from from over half of the USA to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field on Satuday with competition on Sunday. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

The overall winner of the camp was Jordan Ober (NV, ’15). Ober was exceptional all weekend in Vegas. The hometown hero snapped a great, accurate ball throughout the two days. He is snapping with confidence and dips into the D1 range. Incredible accuracy and has been improving a great amount in a very short amount of time. Excellent attitude.

The 12 Long Snappers that made the finals round on Sunday due to their exceptional RSI (Rubio Standard Index – score divided by speed with bonus points for more speed) were….Jordan Ober, AJ Carty, George Madden, Grant Gluhaich, Jake Knight, Tommy Bancroft, Liam McCullough, John Aloma, Harrison Goebel, Darren Diffee, Logan Hamilton & Michael Poujol. All were great but Ober just outlasted them all.

Recap of the Rubio Long Snapping CA Camp on Feb. 23, 2014

Long Snappers came out to CA to attend the Rubio Long Snapping CA Camp on February 23rd from CA, AZ, NV, IA, OR and TX  to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field, had a film and classroom session, a recruiting seminar and ended the day with a competition with Rubio present and running the camp. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on RubioLongSnapping.com.

The overall winner of the camp was Oregon Duck commit and current #1 Long Snapper in the country, Tanner Carew (CA, ’14)! Carew left no doubt that he is the top Long Snapper in the country. Whether he was running down field like a gazelle or snapping an absolute rocket, Carew was the man. He was calm, handled pressure very well and almost nonchalant the whole day. He is flat out ready for the next level right now. Oregon got a great one in Carew.

Top 2014 Long Snappers

  • Niko Walsh (JC, CA) continues to become more and more confident with each snap. Might just be the best PAT snapper in the country and he is always working towards becoming better. Excellent snapper and person.
  • Colin Duffy (CA) was snapping great all day and showed me that the Duke commit is working his tail off to get ready for fall camp. Kid is always improving and he is snapping the ball hard.
  • Wes Bertoni (CA) is a JC Long Snapper that has not been snapping for that long but you would  never know. He rips the ball back to the punter and is oozing with confidence.
  • Elijah Richardson (CA) might snap the hardest ball in the country. He is built strong and thick with a ton of power from his body. He has an excellent attitude and has the ability to be a great college Long Snapper.

Top 2015 Long Snappers

  • Ryan Farr (NV) is coming off his win at the 12th Annual Rubio Long Snapping camp and is still riding the wave. He is VERY confident and smooth when he snaps a ball. He was recently offered a full ride to Oregon St. and that will not be a wasted scholarship on their part, this kid can snap!
  • AJ Carty (CA) was on fire all day in CA. He is built like a D1 Long Snapper already and snaps as fast as college snapper as well. Hands are quick and he has great form. Soon, he will flat out dominate a camp from start to finish.
  • Wesley Farnsworth (NV) has some of the quickest hands in the country and, when you combine that with solid form, just makes a flat out great Long Snapper. This kid can absolutely fly on his feet.
