AJ Carty

This class of Long Snappers has really begun to separate itself as one of the best ever.

  • Jordan Ober was extremely solid all day with punt snaps that dipped into the low .6s
  • Grant Gluhaich is one of the most amazing Long Snappers in the country. You have to make a point to see him snap at VEGAS XXV

  • Ryan Simmons won the accuracy competition and looked exceptional all day long.
  • John Magness looked very solid and is definitely making a move to being a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

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.

On May 4-5, 2013 well over 100 Long Snappers from around the globe came out to Las Vegas to participate in the 11th Annual National Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas sponsored by Nike. The talent was excellent and so were the conditions. The staff was overflowing with one staff member per three Long Snappers so everyone was able to get the full experience throughout the weekend. Day one of the Event was all about instruction and many Long Snappers stood out immediately to make a name for themselves.

After it was all said and done, the winner of the camp was CJ Keller (2014, AZ). CJ handles pressure as well as anyone in the country, was snapping bullets all day and is very, very accurate and consistent. Kid is a machine and outlasted the rest of the competitors to take home the title!
