Rubio Long Snappers Getting Shots in the NFL!

Rubio Long Snapping not only dominated the weekend in Las Vegas, it also dominated it across the country.

It turns out that five Rubio Long Snappers impressed the scouts enough on their pro days to get invited to camps across the country. I couldn’t be more proud of these guys and I know everyone is cheering them on.

  • Chris Maikranz (Lamar University) is headed to camp with the Houston Texans
  • Drew Howell (Oregon) is headed to camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • JR Carr (Tennessee) is headed to camp with the Washington Redskins
  • Trevor Gillette (Rice) is headed to camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
  • Ryan Iverson (Colorado) is headed to camp with the Detroit Lions.



All-American Team

Starting this year, Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer Kicking will be choosing an All-American Team!

We will be choosing 4 High School and 4 College All-Americans. We will also be choosing a Most Improved Kicker, Punter and Long Snapper for the year as well.

One of the best parts about these awards, besides the honor itself, is that they will be announced on Friday, January 17th in Las Vegas. Yup, that is the day before the world’s largest kicking, punting and Long Snapping event and everyone will be on hand for the ceremony.

Also, in Vegas on that same night, Herbalife 24 will be announcing the Chris Rubio Award and Chris Sailer Award for top High School Long Snapper and Kicker of the Year!

Therefore, instead of just a handful of lucky families being able to see the Chris Rubio and Chris Sailer Award presentations, there will now be hundreds. The awards ceremony will take place in a ballroom at the JW Marriott with the front tables being reserved for the finalists and their families, while the rest of the ballroom will be open seating and free to the public. Imagine the NFL draft in your head….that is what this will look like in Vegas.

With no further adieu, here are the Rubio Long Snapping and Chris Sailer Kicking Pre-Season All-Americans….
