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.



Two Rubio Long Snappers Signed as Free Agents

The NFL lockout officially ended on Monday morning and two long time Rubio Long Snappers were picked up almost immediately! Congratulations go out to Corey Adams of Kansas St and Christian Yount of UCLA. I have known and trained both of them for over 6 years and I can tell you that you simply won’t find two better and more loyal guys. How highly do I think of these two fine young gentleman? Put it this way, they were on a very short list that were invited to my wedding.

Here is some background on both….

Corey Adams played his high school football at a very small school outside of Denver, CO called Lewis Palmer HS. He was the first player ever offered a scholarship from there to play football (side note: well done to Kansas St). He was a TOP 12 member and the number one Long Snapper in his graduating class (2007). He went his entire four years at Kansas St without a single bad snap. Corey has helped out at the January and May Vegas Events for the past four years and has always done a terrific job.

Fun Fact: It was actually a little tricky making Corey’s high school highlight tape as his punter was too scared to catch his fast snaps. The punter was often caught on tape backing up to 18 yards or simply dropping them.

Check out this newscast of Corey in high school and look for a great cameo in it!

Christian Yount played his high school football at Tesoro HS in Coto de Caza, CA. He started snapping simply to get a spot on the bus (double side note: nice life changing decision). He was a TOP 12 member and the number one Long Snapper in his graduating class (2006). He was the first Long Snapper to ever be offered a full scholarship his junior year in high school. He grayshirted at UCLA and was a two time Playboy All-American (triple side note: he was also the first winner of the award).
Fun Fact: Christian once had a football coach tell him that Long Snapping was a bad idea, he was wasting his time and they don’t give out scholarships for just that position. That guy was obviously like Nostradamus as Christian was the only one on his HS team to receive a full ride and he seems to have done pretty well for himself.

Best of luck to these two and I look forward to writing many more of these blogs about future Rubio Long Snappers headed to the NFL….will the next one be about you?
