Recap Article of the CA Fall Camp (10/18/15)

CA
Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on October 18th for their fall camp. The camp had perfect weather and the talent was off the charts. CA is quickly becoming the hotbed of Long Snapping talent from top to bottom.

Long Snappers came out from CA, NV, AZ, CO & TX to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp, and new 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper, was Conner Kirkegaard (CA, ’16)! Kirkegaard, who has recently committed to Air Force, was outstanding all day in CA. He was snapping with a great deal of confidence (as he should be) and just letting the ball rip back to the punter. I was very impressed with Kirkegaard and Air Force will be as well!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Damon Johnson

    Damon Johnson

    Jake Cesear, who has recently committed to Wisconsin on full scholarship, left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in the country. Incredibly athletic and has the most upside of anyone in his class.

  • Damon Johnson, who has recently committed to West Virginia on full scholarship, was snapping smooth, crisp balls all day long. Speed is very strong and so is his attitude. His turn to win a big one.
  • John Aloma throws absolute heat back to the punter. VERY catchable ball and, EASILY, one of the best attitudes in the country. He will make a college coach very happy next year.
  • Koby Walsh continues to impress me with his drive and work ethic. Very smooth Long Snapper that will dominate when ALL of his snaps are full power.
  • Riley Shackelford can pass an eyeball test quickly and throw some severe heat back to the punter when it all clicks. Great attitude.
  • Matt O’Donoghue is thick, strong and snaps a great ball. This sleeper might no longer be sleeping.
  • Jacob Mimoun has improved as much as anyone over the past couple of years. Built very long and starting to really snap with confidence.
  • Jack Brennan has come out of nowhere and is very much in the conversation as one of the top Long Snappers in his class. Very athletic and always improving.

Notables: Kody Allen, Max Burcher, Patt Coughlin, Biago Capp, Grant Crum, Ryan DeLucia, Blake Gifford, Curtis Hernandez

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel

    Noah Rodriguez-Trammel

    Kyle Gibbs was simply a force to be reckoned with in CA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps fire back to the punter. Love to see him focus on consistency and flat out knowing he will dominate. Watch this kid at VEGAS XXVII.

  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammell has an incredible amount of upside and is great….NOW! He can pass an eyeball test from 100 yards away. Ball is quick and fast. He is VERY good.
  • Devin Noth has a frame that will be able to put on some good weight over the next couple of years. Great attitude on this Long Snapper with a nice, smooth ball.
  • Peter Snodgrass has great form and is coming along nicely. Always, and I mean always, improving.
  • Andrew Toothman has come A LONG way with his snapping and was very impressive in CA. Form is impeccable and he is doing a great job of using his whole body.

Notables: Koltin Anderson, Mark Casillas, Drake Maningo, Alex Michaelsen, Nick Rovetti

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Kyle Petrucci

    Kyle Petrucci

    James Townsend was dominant all day and proved he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. EXTREMELY athletic. Might be able to play two positions in college.

  • Kyle Petrucci is a mountain of a man with great form and potential. Needs to learn to trust his form and really let the ball fly out of his hands at all times. Incredible upside.
  • Brendan Bentley is a very smooth Long Snapper that is always improving. Kid is a workhorse and continues to impress me.
  • Andrew Domingo, pound of pound, was one of the best Long Snappers in CA. Of course, he needs to gain some pounds, but man can this kid snap the ball. Very impressive to watch him use ALL of  his body.
  • Matt Garcia has tremendous form and is the silent assassin of his class. Confidence will be key as we move forward.

Notables: Charles De Rosier, Matt Tokos

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Simon Samarzich, who has been with Rubio Long Snapping for quite some time, did really well in CA. Impeccable form and good size give him a massive leg up against the competition in CA. Good attitude and he can snap the ball in the .7s. Should be a great weekend for him at VEGAS XXVII.
  • Nathan Weneta

    Nathan Weneta

    Nathan Weneta has improved drastically over the past couple of years and is a legit contender for the top Long Snapper for the class of 2019 Long Snappers. Good frame, wonderful form and an incredible attitude make him one to watch over the next couple of years.

  • Jesse Vasquez showed me excellent form and coachability all day long in CA. Great Long Snapper already. Strength and confidence will be huge as we progress into VEGAS XXVII.

Notables: Reed Simons, Keelan O’Riordan, Owen Larson

Article & Rankings from the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in CA

The rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in CA!

Long Snappers came out from CA, NV, AZ, WY, WA, UT and CO to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Next ranking opportunity will be at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX on March 15th.

Hoffman, Harrison

Harrison Hoffman

The overall winner of the camp was Harrison Hoffman. Harrison is headed to the Air Force Academy and will do great there. He is a smooth Long Snapper with a frame that will easily be able to pack on the pounds in the coming years. Great kid and always learning

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Jordan Ober snaps so the ball is crisp, tight and moves quickly back to the punter. I would love to see him lower his butt just a tad to get even more speed on the ball. That’s a very simple fix that can be adjusted in less than a week. I also love his attitude.
  • Cody Block is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He moves very well on his feet, no matter what he is doing. His hands are extremely quick. He gets the ball out of the gate as well as anyone else in the country. I would love to see him focus on getting fully set and making sure he is going back instead of just straight up. This will increase the speed of the ball and keep him in the low .7s to even .6s over the course of a day.
  • Jonathan Goldstein is built long and his form has really progressed over the years. He has a frame that can put up some very good weight over the next year. Goldstein uses his whole body really well and he can snap the ball in the .6s at times on punts. He needs to make sure his consistency with that speed is locked down and that he is getting the same release point with all of his snaps. This kid can really snap. Watch him.
  • Peter Comaroto‘s form is excellent and he is always improving. Getting his footwork down and continuing to build his body will help in the long run. It is fun to watch this kid snap. UMASS is lucky to have him in the fall.
  • Richard Wilcox is fantastic when loose. The less thinking he does, the better he is. I love when he drives his elbows and creates some good whip and speed on the ball. He is built thick so he will have to really make sure he stays loose and doesn’t become too bulky which will slow the ball down. He has a great attitude.
  • Matt Foley is snapping the ball with confidence and is sure of himself. He looked good. I REALLY just need to see him focus on one snap and let it fly out of his hands full speed. Once he does that, I want it EVERY SINGLE TIME. He is as close as possible to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. This kid is good.

Notables: Scott Stevens, Jack Dixon, JT Bale

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Johnny Den Bleyker was smooth, strong and fast. Den Bleyker has it all right now. The bigger he gets, the better he will be. Love when he gets fully set. Very dominant at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. UCLA got a good one.
  • Damon Johnson had a great day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. Gets in a groove and is very dominant. His misses are becoming less and less frequent. Big thing for him is to just snap the ball as hard as he can at all times. Kid is flat out good and he will make a college coach very happy in the next couple of years.
  • Conner Kirkegaard had a much better day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. When he lets the ball just fly out of his hands, he is exceptional. Controlling his release point will be huge for him gaining accuracy. Speed is right on target. WORK HORSE.
  • Koby Walsh had another great day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. He is right in the mix with all of the great ones in his class. Now, he needs to lock down the consistency and take it to the next level. Show me he can win a camp and separate himself from those above him. Moves really well on his feet. Body is coming along nicely. I will be testing his blocking and movement a ton at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jake Cesear – Simple: he gets to about 210 lbs and he will have a scholarship. Reminds me a lot of Rubio Long Snappers Aaron Brewer (Denver Broncos) and Chase Dominguez (Utah). TONS of upside. Kid is almost ready for a scholarship now. SMOOOOOOOOTH.
  • James Workman had another big jump in the rankings and well deserved. Workman is really locking down his consistency and is headed towards one of the greats in his class. The harder he snaps, the better he will be. Lowering his butt will help a bit to gain more speed and power. Kid is filled with potential. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXVI. EVENT ELITE?
  • Donald Reiter is coming along nicely and had a good day at the Rubio Long Snapping camp in CA. Needs to really focus on being as quick as possible going back instead of gradually going up. Very good attitude.

Notables: Jack Haney, Curtis Hernandez, Jacob Mimoun,  Jack Munsey, Andrew Tomlinson, Jared Enrico, Blake Gifford, Fletcher Dilley

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Thomas Fletcher is just flat out good. Really good. If I was a college coach, I would be looking at this kid VERY, VERY closely right now. The bigger he gets, the better he will be. Just trust me on this, watch him. It would not surprise me to see him win VEGAS XXVI.
  • Koltin Anderson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. He is snapping the ball with confidence and good power. Like to see him continue to work on eliminating the hitch while still snapping full power. Strong bodied. Great attitude.
  • Alex Michaelsen is snapping the ball with good power and strength. Needs to make sure he is not over-gripping the ball so he keeps his spiral on lock down. Keeping his back flat will help with overall speed and power. VERY good potential and definitely one to watch.
  • Devin Noth of Colorado did well. Plain and simple, the bigger Noth gets, the better he will be. Kid has very good form and is snapping the ball well. He is snapping the ball with very good power and accuracy. Kid is flat out good. Keep a very close eye on him over the next two years and beyond.

Notables: Joey Tanaka, Noah Rodriguez-Trammell, Caleb Laver

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS & FUTURE STARS

  • Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best in his class and it wasn’t even close. Kid is strong, has a great attitude and snaps with power.
  • Brendan Bentley showed QUICK improvement in a very short amount of time. Body is strong and his form is good. Loved what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. Snaps the ball with good power. Like to see him sit down a bit more and make sure he is leaning back. VERY good potential and you should really keep a close eye on him.
  • Simon Samarzich continues to just plug along and dominate his age group in CA. VEGAS XXVI will be big to prove he is dominant at the national level. Wouldn’t put money against him showing up and snapping bullets.

Recap Article & Video of the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in TX

Long Snappers came out on April 27 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in TX from TX, CA, OK, NJ, MN, IL, LA, FL, AR, KS, GA and SC 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.

Eatherly, GeronThe overall winner of the camp was Geron Eatherly (TX, ’16). Geron (pronounced with a hard G) had a good day throughout the whole camp and came on very strong in the finals. He can snap a D1 ball right now and he is only a sophomore. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be. Look for him to do some big things in Vegas! Great attitude and always improving.

TOP 2014 LONG SNAPPERS…

  • JC Everett (AR) was simply fantastic all day long in TX. He has completely transformed his body by losing twenty lbs of excess weight and adding some great muscle. He looks wonderful and is snapping the same way. He is very ready for the Air Force Academy!
  • Bronson Bruneau (MN) looked excellent all day in TX and definitely ready to earn the starting spot next year at Duke. He is a massive man with a ton of upside. His snapping and his frame looked great.
  • Jordan Frese (TX) is headed to Texas A&M in the fall and is right on path to do great things. Body is getting bigger and his form is coming along very nicely. Great personality and attitude.
  • Bobby Joe Nielsen (TX) is absolutely ripping the ball back to the punter. He uses every ounce of his body and I love it. Form is very good and he is accurate. Midwestern State got a good one in Bobby Joe!
  • Clayton Jackson (KS) looked very smooth and confident all day long in TX. The more he knows he can do it, the better he will. Incredible person on all levels.

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPERS…

  • Michael Poujol (TX) passes the eyeball test very quickly and is becoming one of the most dominant Long Snappers in his class. Poujol left no doubt he was there to set himself apart from the others and that is exactly what he did with great snaps all day. He is ready for college now.
  • George Madden (OK) is built extremely well and has great form. This all equals to excellent snaps every single time. He was on fire all weekend and seems ready to dominate Vegas. Keep a very close eye on him. He is ready for college now.
  • Ryan Farr (NV) came all the way from Las Vegas but showed no jet-lag whatsoever. He is easily one of the smoothest Long Snappers in the country and is always snapping with great accuracy.
  • Sam Walkingstick (OK) could give Farr a run for the smoothest and most accurate Long Snapper in the country. Kid simply doesn’t miss!
  • Garrett Wilson  (NC) has put on about 2o lbs of muscle and it has definitely paid off with his snapping. He is built very well and snapping hard.
  • Grant Merka (TX) is snapping with a ton of confidence and snapping, easily, at the D1 level right now. The bigger he gets, the higher up the rankings he goes.
  • Matt Oliveira (NJ) has excellent size and is snapping a great ball right now. He is beginning to really believe in himself and that is a wonderful thing to see.
  • Garrett Stotts (TX) is a thick Long Snapper that snaps with good power and force. He is coming into his own and looking to make a big name for himself in the next couple months and I could easily see it happening.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS…

  • Damon Johnson looked good with his form and was snapping the ball well. The more comfortable he gets with his ability, the better he will be.
  • Donald Reiter was impressive out in Vegas. He snaps a tight ball and shows waves of brilliance with his speed on the ball.
  • Conner Kirkegaard continues to be a solid Long Snapper with great speed. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be.
  • Grant Crum stood out with his continued performance all weekend. Could be the sleeper of his class.
