Recap of the FL Spring Camp (5/7)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to FL  on May 7th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from FL, AL SC, TX, OK, MS, IL , MI and NC to learn from the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was Thomas Fletcher (FL, ’17)! Fletcher is the top ranked Long Snapper in the country with offers from Memphis, Florida State, Portland State and Oregon. He left no doubt he deserves those offers and many more. Fletcher handles pressure as well as anyone I have ever had and has no wasted movement in his snap. Ball jumps out of the gate.

2016

Brett DioGuardi

Brett DioGuardi

Brett DioGuardi was the top 2016 Long Snapper in attendance in FL. He has good size and is a very accurate and consistent Long Snapper. Trusting his form and really letting the ball fly will assist with speed. Great attitude.

Aaron Blaylock had a great day in FL. Snapped with a lot of confidence and showed some solid athleticism. Excellent attitude and I love his drive. Kid is very persistent and is a workhorse.

2017

Thomas Fletcher

Thomas Fletcher

Thomas Fletcher was the top 2017 Long Snapper in attendance in FL. The kid is a machine and the more pressure there is, the better he does. He is ready for college right now. Zero wasted movement on his snap.

Matt Hembrough had a great day in FL. Growing like a weekend and snaps a very consistent ball. Lots and lots of upside on Hembrough. Keep a very close eye on him at XXVIII in May.

Paul Lawless is a very solid Long Snapper with a great attitude. When it all clicks for him, he will destroy his class. Very good upside

David Demeter is a tremendous athlete that really flies down field on punt coverage. Major factor on the punt team. Like to see him work on being quicker on his initial movement.

Gabe Hantz is a strong Long Snapper that just needs to focus on getting set to truly dominate. Good frame.

Notables: Eli McMullen, Kyle Childers

2018

Oscar Shadley

Oscar Shadley was the top 2018 Long Snapper in attendance in FL. He can pass an eyeball test from 100 yards away and is a very good athlete. Working on consistency will be huge for him in VEGAS.

Clay James ended the day VERY strong in FL. The less he thinks, the better he does. Smooth Long Snapper with no wasted movement. Ball gets a good jump out of the gate 

AJ Covan is a machine with his accuracy. He rarely misses on The Target and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him win VEGAS.

Dillon Hayes is a solid Long Snapper with good speed. Snapping full speed at all times will be what I am looking for in VEGAS.

The overall winner of the camp, and new 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper, was Anthony Ratliff (GA, ’16)! Ratliff, who has recently been offered a preferred walk-on to Penn St., was on fire all day.

    Scott Meyer was outstanding all day in GA. The more he just lets the ball go, the better he is. Might be the smoothest Long Snappers in the country.

The Winner of the VEGAS XXVII Contest

In August, I posted a contest sponsored by the Frese family in honor of their grandfather, Hank. Hank was a former Marine and always present at Rubio Long Snapping Vegas Camps. He was an absolute stud and there are some great stories of him at the camps.

The basics of the contest were as follows….

A Long Snapper, 7th grade to JC, will have to create a video (no longer than one minute in length) that incorporates snapping, their grandparent (if you don’t have one, find one) and the song HERE. Now, once you hear the song “Papa With His Pants on High”, you will understand that either the Long Snapper or the grandparent MUST be in high pants. Also, the song must be heard while the film is going. The funner it is, the better it is.

Several entries came in and the decision for the Frese family was so hard, they decided to offer three prizes! First place would receive a free admission to Vegas, while 2nd & 3rd place would receive a small group session! This is incredibly generous of them and I know the whole Rubio Long Snapping family thanks them.

Congratulations to GABE HANTZ on THIRD place!

Congratulations to ROSS ARROYO on SECOND place!

And, a big CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER OF THE CONTEST, CALVIN MAHER!!!

The overall winner of the camp was Koby Pryz (GA, ’16). Koby is a big, strong Long Snapper with great power and confidence. Accurate Long Snapper that handled pressure well. Impressive day for Koby.

Champion Koby Pryz

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

  • Jake Munoz

    Jake Munoz

    Jake Munoz was exceptional all day in GA. As stated before, this kid has some of the quickest hands I have EVER seen. The ball jumps out of the gate and is almost hard to catch it gets back to the punter so quickly. He ended up winning the speed competition as he was snapping in the .6s throughout the day.

  • Clarke Smith is a very large Long Snapper with great power and speed. Timed him several times in the .6s. Keep a very close eye on him over the next couple of months. Great attitude.
  • Tanner Sineath showed lots of potential and great pop on the ball. Built well.
  • Matt O’Donoghue came out from CA and showed some excellent snaps all day. Really has improved a ton.
