TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

Matt Hembrough

Matt Hembrough was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was absolutely ripping the ball back to the punter and his body is starting to thicken up. Oklahoma State got a good one in Hembrough as he is definitely looking ready for the college level at this point.

Nate Durham was smooth, consistent and showed great accuracy throughout the day in IL. Frame is solid and he has great form. Absolutely love to watch Nate snap when he is putting full power on the ball.

Dylan Castro is beyond smooth and left no doubt he is ready for the college level with his snapping. He has a great attitude and uses his body well. Very good upside for Castro over the next couple of years.

Shiloh Mast did very well in IL and could have ended up winning the whole thing! Attitude is excellent and so is his form. Uses his whole body well and snaps a very smooth ball.

Mario Rodrigues has improved a ton and looks ready for the next level. Form is good and he does a great job of being consistent with each and every snap.

Recap of the GA Fall Camp (12/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on December 18th, 2016 for their fall camp. 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 MS, AL, VA, GA, LA, SC, TN, FL, NC, IL, MI, IN, OH, MO, SC, KY & Canada all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.
The overall camp champion was Jacob Potter. Potter was excellent all day. His hands were like rockets as his ball jumped out of the gate on all snaps. Accuracy was off the charts and he was very calm and collected when he was snapping throughout the finals. He was definitely snapping with a ton of confidence and I loved watching him all day. His victory in GA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between Jacob Potter and Brock Assel below.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Prep Camps in CA, TX & GA on January 8th followed by the granddaddy of them all, VEGAS XXIX on January 13-15!

Top 2017 Long Snappers
Jacob Potter was the top 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was smooth, powerful and snapping with confidence. Ball moves quickly and jumps out of the gate on a mission. Body is strong and he has no problem getting the ball under .75. Impressive improvement on Potter.

Chandler Moody really caught my eye several times in GA. Ball is quick and he can hit under .7 when he catches a groove. I like his attitude and he has a frame that can pack on about another 40. Moody could be the sleeper of the 2017 class. Keep a close eye on him.

Dillon Manning showed great improvement and is one of the stronger Long Snappers in his class. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and can move well on his feet. Quiet and determined Long Snapper that has some VERY quick hands.

Tuck Gill was impressive in GA. His body is thick and he has a nice spiral. Impressive use of his overall solid frame. Ball is accurate and consistent.

Dominic Brocato made it deep into the finals and snaps with confidence. Coming along very nicely and always improving.

Notables: Austin Gean, Jacob Helton, Gio Miller, Ben Shirley

Top 2018 Long Snappers
Oscar Shadley was the best overall Long Snapper in this class. He is an incredible athlete and snaps one of the most consistent hard balls I have felt in some time. He is CONSISTENTLY at .68 and on target. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he does. The potential on Shadley is off the charts and he could be a tremendous Long Snapper in college.

Roen McCullough had a solid day in GA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps a smooth, powerful ball. He has no problem hitting sub .70 and has good accuracy. Moves well on his feet and snaps with a good attitude. Massive upside.

Cade Long looked great in GA. Ball is so clean and crisp every single time to the punter. Cade makes everything look effortless as he continuously snaps the ball back to the punter. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes in his class.

AJ Covan continues to impress me with his accuracy and consistency with his snaps. Notable improvement on his athleticism and speed. Covan is focused and dialed in for VEGAS XXIX and could EASILY win it.

Evan Dvorchik was beyond solid in GA. I saw him recently in WA and he was night and day better this time around. He is snapping with a ton of confidence as his ball hits under .77 consistently. Body is good and I love his attitude.

Jarrett Key was smooth and accurate. Quiet Long Snapper that is always in the mix of dominance. The more he snaps with confidence, the better he does in the long run. VERY good attitude that a coach will love in the coming years.

Brock Assel made it all the way to the finals and could have easily won the whole thing. His accuracy and consistency are off the charts. Large man with decent athleticism for his frame. Great attitude and definitely improving. Should do really well at VEGAS XXIX.

Parker Lefton looked good in GA. Thick bodied with quick hands and a consistent snap in the high .7s.

Camren Wood was VERY impressive in GA. Easily the best day he has had with Rubio Long Snapping. He is doing an excellent job of improving. Over and over throughout the day, I was wooed by Camren and his snapping.

Jake Rudolph is a good athlete with solid upside. When he is on, he is really on and has excellent athleticism.

Notables: Aidan Brock, Heath Crabtree, Dillon Hayes, Noah Hightower, Evan Jennings, Richard Landry, Brock Powers, Eli Spivey, Bailey Williams

Top 2019 Long Snappers
Quentin Skinner is a physically monstrous Long Snapper that is completely dominant and still hasn’t filled all of his potential yet. When it all clicks, Skinner could be one of the greatest Rubio Long Snappers of all time. His hands are quick and his ball is powerful. Strength is off the charts.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Great form and he is using all of his body well. He had some great snap times throughout the day and left no doubt he has really been working hard and smart. Great upside on Drew.

Christian Johnstone looked very solid in GA with his accurate and consistent snaps. Love his frame, his attitude and his upside. He could easily earn a roster spot at The TOP 12 Camp at VEGAS XXIX.

William Wagner came on strong at the end of the day in GA and left a very good taste in my mouth. Body is thick and he uses a good amount of his body. Keep an eye on him.

Chad Becker looked great in GA. His snaps get out of the gate very quickly and he has no problem getting the ball under .7. Upside on Becker is huge. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXIX.

Codey Bennett is a strong Long Snapper with quick hands and a consistent, accurate snap. He moved well on his feet and was impressive throughout the day in GA. He is definitely one to watch at VEGAS XXIX.

Mason Napper has a good frame and a smooth snap. Very good potential and I like his attitude. He has the ability to be the real deal in just a couple months. Napper might be the sleeper of his class.

JC Vega is an incredible athlete with excellent upside. Snaps speeds are good and bordering on great. Lots and lots of upside.

Zach Lassiter made it deep into the finals and could have walked away with the victory. Built long with a frame that will hold some good weight over the next couple of years. Handled pressure well.

Notables: Carson Crisp, Cade Degraw, Ford Hayes, Tripp Heath, Graham Leslie, Dylan McCardel, Cody Olszewski, Justin Wright

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….
Zane McCracken was by far the best 2020 Long Snapper in attendance and it wasn’t even close. Form is exceptional as he has been with Rubio Long Snapper for about five years! He can already snap in the .6s which is exceptional for his age. Zane is well above his age for talent level.

Jackson Worthen has great form and a solid attitude. Ball is quick and his overall use of his body is very solid for his age.

Will Benton was solid all day in GA. I like his attitude and the way he snaps the ball. Fine tuning his overall form and locking down his spiral will push him way up the rankings.

Eli Pyrz is a consistent Long Snapper with very quick hands. He moved well on his feet.

Kneeland Hibbett is a 2021 Long Snapper that was impressive for his first camp with Rubio Long Snapping. Good overall form and a solid attitude. He is already using his whole body well. Good upside.
