Recap of the TX Spring Camp (4/29/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on April 29th, 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 10 states 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 champions of the camp were Braedy Wilson (speed) and Eliot Gottsegen (overall)! Braedy was on fire throughou the speed competition and was having no problem getting sub .75. Gottsegen got hot at the right time and just became a juggernaut and mowed down Long Snapper after Long Snapper in the finals. Smooth Long Snapper with quick eyes and hands. Really impressive how well he handled the pressure of being in the finals and winning while being just a freshman!

Wilson, Rubio and Gottsegen

The finals round matchups were Blake Hooker (62.11), JJ Lindsay (54.10), Grant Goltra (45.88), Hayden Hood (42.47), Eliot Gottsegen (30.67) and Dylan Wiltcher (29.63). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Evan “Mufasa” Gibson was smooth, consistent and left no doubt he is ready for college. Body is thick and he is strong. Ball hovers in the mid to high .7s and can trickle to the .8s if he becomes tentative. The harder he snaps the ball, the better Mufasa will do in the long run. Great attitude.

Mason Smith was very efficient with his snapping motion and hovered right in the low .8s all day long. Good worker that listens well.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Luke Rizzo was on absolute fire all day long in TX. You could tell he was a man on a mission and he left no doubt he was one of the most dominant Long Snappers in the country today. Body is getting thicker and stronger by the hour. Ball is very quick. Making sure he is extending the ball out and getting fully set puts this kid at 5 Stars at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Hayden Hood is a very athletic Long Snapper with a smooth, consistent snapping motion. Love his overall attitude and I am ready to win a camp and leave no doubt.

Caden Bolz is thick and strong with very quick hands and legs. Butt is lower than normal and he can still get his legs locked. Ball is powerful.

Braedy Wilson won the speed competition, is built extremely long and can rip the ball back to the punter. Moves in a smooth fashion and if he can fully lead with his elbows, he will average sub .70

Brandon Oldham is thick and strong with a quick ball. Lowering his butt to get his back to parallel will take him to the top.

Joshua Burtch is big and strong with very quick hands. Thick Long Snapper that can dominate at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Brayden Chandler showed me some great things in TX and he has all of the tools to be one of the greats.

Andrew Downs is a quiet Long Snapper that does all of his talking with snap speeds well under .80 on a consistent basis.

John Farris has a great attitude and has some of the quickest hands in the country.

Jack Harrison improved a ton and is starting to snap with a lot of confidence. Watch this kid.

JJ Lindsay is beyond smooth and snaps one of the most catchable balls in the country.

Joshua Smetzer hovered under .80 all day and has a massive amount of upside.

Nick Stoia will absolutely crush his class if he can focus on slow motion drills to get all of his lower half fully involved.

Jake Zenger has a tremendous attitude and a frame that could put on fifty pounds over the next couple of years to make himself a top prospect.

Landon Sleeper is strong and smooth. Leading with his elbows is the key to his greatness.

Notables: Nate McCormack, Anthony Rosenstrauch, Cayden Sparks, Nicholas DiVirgilio, Zac Bland

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Blake Hooker was tremendous in TX and actually broke the spring record for RSI with a 62.11! Ball is very quick and he is starting to really roll right now. The more he snaps with absolute confidence and knows how great he is, the better he will be and be able to fully dominate his class. Watch him very closely at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Dylan Wiltcher made it to the finals and was inches from winning the whole time. He looked very determined and showed he is a flat out stud in his class.

Bryce Felt came out from CA and was snapping with great power. Ball rarely goes above .80 at fifteen yards and his improvement over the past couple of months is off the charts.

Bryce Eimer was snapping very well under pressure and is close to snapping a college ball right now and he still has two years left of high school.

Jake Foggia looked great in TX with his very smooth snaps and great attitude. Always improving and the more he leads with his elbows and snaps with full power, the more dominant he becomes.

Jackson McFarland was snapping some severe heat in TX and left no doubt he can be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Eli Chism has grown very well over the past couple of months and is starting to look like a college Long Snapper now.

John Bergeron is smooth and has great form. Locking down his spiral is going to be the key.

Jarret Caillier has great size and all of the tools to be one of the top Long Snappers in his class.

Nolan Pope is big, has a great personality and very quick hands.

Ethan Lane is big, thick and very strong. Making sure his elbows are going straight back is the key to greatness.

Lee Pyles is very good and he is headed towards great. Ball is very quick.

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS
JT Sleeper is a big and thick Long Snapper that snaps a beyond smooth ball. Form is coming along extremely well and the kid is an absolute workhorse. The harder he snaps the ball and the more he can improve his overall athleticism, the higher up the rankings he will go.

Connor Able has all of the tools to be one of the best Long Snappers in his class. Great attitude and listens well. Locking down his spiral will help a ton.

Byron Rhodes will dominate his class once he stops thinking a little bit. Just letting his body do all of the work and trusting his form will be huge for Rhodes.

Grant Goltra is absolutely overflowing with potential and can crush everyone if he can utilize all of his body. Slow motion snaps will help him a ton.

Recap of the GA Spring Camp (4/22/18)

JC Vega, Rubio and Jackson Worthen

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to GA on April 22nd, 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 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 overall champions of the camp were JC Vega (speed) and Jackson Worthen (overall)! This is JC’s second speed championship. Jackson is a 2020 Long Snapper from Kentucky that proved he was one of the best in attendance and was simply on fire all day long in GA. Ball is very smooth, was easily under .79 all day long and he handles pressure extremely well for his age. Kid was very impressive from start to finish.

You can see the full finals video with Drew Little, Doug McLaughlin, John Morton, Jackson Worthen, Brennen Milliron and Mason Napper below…

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS

Brennen Milliron

Brennen Milliron left no doubt he is ready for Troy with strong and consistent snaps all day long! Great attitude, form and power. 

Niko Johnson has good power and a terrific work ethic.

Graham Finklea is smooth, accurate and always has a good attitude.

Drew Little

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
Drew Little nabbed the highest RSI, again, at a Rubio Long Snapping spring camp. Already held the spring record with a 61.00 and he almost topped that with a 55 in GA. Kid is a machine and just keeps improving.

Christian Johnstone seems to get bigger by the second and is really starting to snap with some great power. The ceiling for Johnstone is beyond high and he is really starting to believe he can be one of the bests in his class.

JC Vega was the speed champ, again, and left no doubt he has the whole package to snap at the next level. Kid is built like a clydesdale.

Griffin Kaye came up from Florida and was ripping the ball back to the punter. Very excited to see this kid perform in Vegas.

Frank Melgarejo was smooth and very accurate all day long. Moved well on his feet.

Luke Payne is like a pitching machine. Every snap is the exact same.

Cade DeGraw can get very hot and throw an absolute fantastic ball back to the punter.

Doug McLaughlin continues to impress me with his accuracy and consistency. He missed his final snap by no more than an inch.

Carson Knight can get hot and dominate.

Codey Bennett is always improving and has great upside.

Hudson Brown is growing by the hour and looked very impressive.

Ford Hayes is absolutely dripping with potential.

Zach Lassiter will dominate once his spiral is locked down.

Edward Lovett had tremendous follow through and has massive upside.

John Morton is thick, strong and improving.

CJ Otwell has a very explosive snapping motion and I love it.

Notables: Craig Scott, Mark Fuchs, Hunter Williamson

Jacob Zuhr

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
Jacob Zuhr was insanely good all day in GA. He can snap a college level ball right now and he is only a sophomore. He handles pressure as well anyone I have had and there is no doubt he can snap at the next level. Ball rips back to the punter and his body is really tightening up. Looks great.

Zane McCracken is coming back to dominance and snapping with great confidence. Very impressive performance all day from Zane.

Grant Reid has good size and can rip it back to the punter when he trusts his form.

Will Albright is absolutely tremendous when he reaches the ball out in front of him more than he normally does.

Will Barton was strong and powerful with great snaps.

Will Benton looked great with snaps that never went above .80 all day long!

Will Cobb was throwing some severe heat and left no doubt he can dominate at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Jake Foggia is smooth and extremely consistent.

Xander Echols has great form and an outstanding attitude. The longer he gets, the better he does.

Jake Gragg shows waves of brilliance.

Ethan Lane can dominate when he snaps as hard as he can.

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

Jonathan Washburn

Jonathan Washburn looked tremendous in GA. Long frame, good speeds and always improving. Sky is the limit for Washburn. Keep a very close eye on him at VEGAS XXXII in May.

Aidan Benjamin was able to snap the ball sub .80 and many occasions. Strong and athletic Long Snapper.

Holden Caspersen was smooth and consistent. Great form.

Mack Gresham is an athletic Long Snapper with very quick hands and a good attitude.

Rocco Underwood was extremely impressive and might have the most potential of any Long Snapper in his class. Watch this kid at VEGAS XXXII in May.
