James Workman

James Workman was the best 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. The future San Jose State Spartan was dominant all day. Ball is VERY tight and he has great accuracy. Love to watch him snap the ball. Very catchable.

  • James Kozachenko was solid all day long in WA. Very athletic Long Snapper with a ball that hovers in the mid .7s.

Notables: Paul Helfrich

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Matt Baldeck

Matt Baldeck

Matt Baldeck was the best 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. When he gets set, there is no one that snaps a harder ball. It is not uncommon for him to crack below the .7 barrier. Getting set will be huge for him in VEGAS.

  • Joseph Cotton has tons of upside and is VERY good. Easily could compete for an EVENT ELITE spot. Excellent athlete.
  • Blake Bostwick showed great intensity and is very accurate.
  • Eli Jenkins is very smooth and consistent.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Dylan Black was the best 2019 Long Snapper in attendance. Ball is very quick and he is already in the .7s. Locking down his consistency and gaining size will be big for him in the future.

Recap of the CA Camp (3/6/16)

CA Camp2016Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 6th for their spring camp.

Long Snappers came out from CA, AZ, NV, CO & UT to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was John Aloma! Aloma was on fire all day and Utah Ute commit was the first Long Snapper to ever win the accuracy and speed competition. His confidence is overflowing right now and his ball jumps back to the punter. He is looking ready for college now!

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker

Johnny Den Bleyker was the best overall Long Snapper in attendance. His form is fantastic and his hands are rockets. ZERO wasted movement. Ball pops right out of the gate. UCLA got a great one.

  • Damon Johnson was outstanding all day. His ball seems to pick up speed on the way back to the punter. Very driven Long Snapper that does all of his speaking with his snaps. USC is lucky to get him

  • Riley Shackelford just committed to Portland State and you could see why they offered him a full ride. Kid is good, thick, strong and powerful with his snaps. Ball moves and his smooth.
  • Koby Walsh, who recently committed to UCLA as a preferred walk on, handled pressure very well and could have won the whole thing
  • Curtis Hernandez might just be the smoothest Long Snapper in the class of 2016. Definitely a sleeper of that class right now. Good upside.

Notables: Tim O’Donnel, Blake Gifford, James Kozachenko, Tanner Miller and Jacob Mimoun

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs

Kyle Gibbs was purely poetic in his snapping all day in CA. Ball is FAST and he has really improved on his accuracy and consistency. The more consistent he gets, the better he will be. 5 Stars by XXVIII should be his goal.

  • Devin Noth showed great athleticism and when he is on, he is REALLY on. Gaining some consistency will be huge before XXVIII.
  • Karson Thomas has great size and snaps the ball with power. Could be the sleeper of his class. Great upside.
  • Noah Rodriguez-Trammel has tons of potential and is a flat out stud when snaps with full power.
  • Peter Snodgrass was impressive all day. Little tweaks will make him unstoppable. Great improvement of the last year.

Notables: Koltin Anderson, Gavin Cambell, Johnny Fuentes, Michael Lacilento, Caleb Lawver, Alex Michaelsen, Andrew Toothman

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter

Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best 2018 Long Snapper in attendance. I timed him in the low .6s and he has an excellent spiral on his ball. Very catchable. If he can get his eyes through each time, have fun out there and get set, he will be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by XXVIII.

  • Brendan Bentley had waves of brilliance, when he is on…he is really on. Needs to focus heavily on making sure he gets both of his hands on the ball and THEN snaps.
  • Charles DeRosier was very consistent and has done a great job of improving over the years.
  • Kyle Petrucci has major upside and when he trusts his form, he will punish the punter.
  • Joseph Ramos is a massive man that will simply be as good as he wants to be. If he pushes himself, he could take the top spot in his class.

Notables: Rob Fiene, Jake Radwan, Ace Thayer, James Townsend, Jac Casasante, Gabriel Cervantes and Matt Garcia

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS:

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich had a great day in CA. He moves well on his feet and can snap the ball back in the .7s. If he pushes himself a bit more with his Long Snapping, he could be one of the best ever. Consistency will be key by XXVIII in May.

  • Nathan Weneta is right on the cusp of greatness. He is growing by the second and might be the fastest running Long Snapper in his class. Kid flies through agility drills. 

  • Ryan Aguilar has tons of upside and could be one of the greats
  • Dylan Black showed good poise and he has some solid speed on the ball.

Notables: Ryan Aguilar

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS:

I was equally impressed with three 8th grade Long Snappers in attendance: Aaron Estrada, Kameron Hawkins and AJ Laux. All are working with great form and are handling pressure well. Definitely keep an eye on these three over the next couple of years.

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to TX on December 13th for their fall camp. The camp had the most talent, from top to bottom, of any Texas camp I have ever had in the last ten years.

Long Snappers came out from TX, KS, LA, CO, AZ, OH, MO, PA, MI, OK, AR, NM and even CA to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall winner of the camp was EVENT ELITE member Travis Arroyo (TX, ’16). Travis is a massive Long Snapper with great athleticism, good flexibility and great form. Wonderful attitude and demeanor as well. So large and powerful that he might be able to play two positions in college as he is quite the dominant lineman.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS:

Geron Eatherly was the best 2016 Long Snapper in attendance. He is BEYOND smooth and accurate. ALWAYS is either in the finals or right next to them. Very accurate and he is gaining some good size. He will be a great pickup for a college coach.

  • Dylan Alexander

    Dylan Alexander

    Dylan Alexander was VERY impressive in TX. Long time Rubio Long Snapper that has really improved over the past year. Was snapping in the .6s. Looking very solid right now.

  • Alex Edwards continues to move up the ladder and get better. Power is solid and he is built thick.
  • Kolin Hayes showed very good accuracy and poise.
  • Conner Hemphill has some of the quickest hands in the country. Lots of potential.
  • Greg Royal might be the smoothest Long Snapper in the country. Very accurate
  • James Kozachenkzo can snap the ball with great power and accuracy. CONSISTENCY will be the next hurdle. Watch him.
  • Gabe Skrobot keeps doing his thing and moving right along. Unlimited potential on the Skrobot.

Notables: Aron Bonham, Tristan Thompson, Colt Poole, Trenton Givens, Eric Ryan

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS:

Thomas Fletcher left no doubt he is the best 2017 Long Snapper in the country. He handles pressure as well as anyone I have ever had and has ZERO wasted movement when he snaps the ball. Efficiency of his snapping motion is off the charts. Kid is ready for college right now.

  • Kyle Gibbs

    Kyle Gibbs

    Kyle Gibbs showed me some absolute raw power in TX. Came out from CA and didn’t disappoint. Kid’s hands are like rockets. He is almost “there”

  • Jeremiah Riordan is really moving up the ladder lately. You can tell he has been working on his overall form. Looking very solid. I would be VERY surprised to see him not dominate VEGAS XXVII.
  • Jake Pagel is just a flat out machine with his snapping. He is always great and just keeps getting better. Silent assassin.
  • Drew Wise has TONS of upside and can get the ball moving quickly back to the punter. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXVII.

Notables: Caleb Cantrell, Benji Gormley, Jarrod Jacobson, Justin Hathoot, Justyce Hankins, Jared Reeves, Steven Taylor, Ethan Zenzen

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS:

Zach Edwards made a very strong case to be the #1 Long Snapper for the country in his class. Body is coming along nicely and he has tremendous form. Kid can rip the ball back to the punter. Doesn’t say much, but doesn’t need to. I am very interested to see how he does in VEGAS with a little more pressure thrown at him.

  • Randen Plattner

    Randen Plattner

    Randen Platter was VERY accurate and handled pressure well. Solid frame that will be able to hold more weight. Good kid.

  • Luke Rizzo

    Luke Rizzo

    Luke Rizzo came out of nowhere and showed me some great things. Very impressive first camp for him. Watch him over the years.
