Recap of the IL Spring Camp (4/7/18)

Guillemette, Rubio and Beattie

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to IL on April 7th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Long Snappers from 15 states and two countries all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping. The camp was a great time had by all with an excellent group of Long Snappers and parents.

The Subway Alum and Rubio

For even more exposure, The Subway Alum prep recruiting site came out to get some interviews, take some photos and see all about the Rubio Long Snapping camp in IL.

The overall champions of the camp were Adam Guillemette (speed) and Brendan Beattie (overall). Beattie was the overall winner of the camp and did great all day. In the finals, he got very hot and only missed by inches a couple times. Ball is quick and he is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He absolutely crushed the agility section of the camp. The determination on this kid is off the charts. Really impressed with Beattie all day long in IL!

You can see the full finals video with Jude Pedrozo, Tyler Shaw, Toby Davidson, Brendan Beattie, Pat Szczesniak and Brad George below…

Recap of the PA Fall Camp (10/9/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Pennsylvania on October 9th, 2016 for their fall camp and it had the most overall talent at a camp in quite some time. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from nine different states all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

kasey-kelleher6065-1The overall camp champion was Kasey Kelleher (’17)! Kasey was on fire all day throwing back pearl after pearl. He won the speed competition with consistent snaps in the .6s and his accuracy is off the charts. Built with solid thickness and has a great mental attitude. Handles pressure well and never stops improving. He did a great job to beat Billy Taylor to win the championship and earn a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can actually watch the finals between Kasey Kelleher and Billy Taylor below from the live feed on the Rubio Long Snapping Periscope.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be WA in two weeks with CA following one week later.

Top 2017 Long Snappers

img_2656Billy Taylor not only was the accuracy champion, he was on fire all day in PA. He is a VERY smooth and calm Long Snapper that has a nice frame with room to put on some lbs in the next year. Ball is tight and the harder he snaps, the better it looks. Great improvement since the TOP 12 Camp at IMG Academy in FL. He is really coming along and finding his groove. Billy could easily dominate VEGAS XXIX.

Kyle O’Connor looked VERY smooth in PA. His hands are like absolute rockets and it is almost hard to time him. He has a really methodical set up but then BOOM! he explodes on the snap. Very solid Long Snapper that can catch a groove and dominate.

Kevin Crabtree, the recent Villanova commit, is a large Long Snapper with good power and an accurate snap. Crabtree is right on the cusp of greatness and once his butt is a bit lower, he will dominate speed. Kid is good and knocking on greatnesses door.

NOTABLES: Ryan Walker

Top 2018 Long Snappers

 

james-rosenberry6604James Rosenberry looked very sharp in PA. Ball is very tight and hovers right in the .7s consistently at all times. Accuracy is solid. Really want him to focus on his athleticism as we gear towards VEGAS XXIX and he pushes himself to get into the TOP 12 Camp.

Alex Mykut is a newcomer and showed great potential. Right now, he is very raw and pretty much all over the place BUT he is absolutely dripping with potential. Smoothing out his snapping motion can make him one of the best in his class. With the right work, he could be a top kid at VEGAS XXIX.

Zach Drevno looked pretty sharp in PA. Built well and has a lot of power. The harder he snaps and the more he trusts his form, the better he will do in the long run.

NOTABLES: Evan Jennings, Brendan Moyer, Breck Gates

Top 2019 Long Snappers

 

austin-sullivan7162Austin Sullivan is sitting on a mound of potential in a great frame. Basically looks like a college Long Snapper right now. Snapping the ball with full power and trusting his form will make his a great one in his class. Upside is off the charts.

Brandon Hurst has good potential and a nice, long frame. He moves really on his feet and has raw talent. Should be able to tie everything together to push for a TOP 12 Camp spot at VEGAS XXIX.

Dominic Serapiglia showed waves of greatness in PA. Built thick and he has good strength. CONFIDENCE in his snapping ability will help a ton. Needs to believe in himself and not get stressed as we get past ten yards. Good upside.

Mike Wojciechowski is growing and getting more and more smooth as the camps progress. Handles pressure really well and has a glorious spiral on the ball. Size and strength will push him up the ladder. Form is great and his attitude is even better.

NOTABLES: Donte Eldridge,
