Long Snappers from CA, CO, LA & AZ 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 champion of the camp was Jack Landherr! This recent UCLA Bruin commit was actually the speed and overall champion of the entire camp. Ball hovered in the low .7s and even dipped into the .6s when he really let loose. His frame is excellent and he is smooth on his feet. Hard worker that has all of the tools to be a great Bruin!

The finals round matchups were Cruz Rubio, Jack Landherr, Kameron Hawkins, Nate Hedberg, Matt Tokos, Max Alvarez. You can see the full finals video below….

Recap of the AZ Spring Camp (3/25/18)

Rubio Long Snapping Sr. Instructor Casey Hales traveled to AZ on March 25th, 2018 to lead the highly anticipated Spring Regional Camp.

Rubio Long Snapping will continue traveling the country this spring Instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for their season and beyond. Following AZ, Rubio Long Snapping will head to IL on 04/07, then GA & TX leading up to the Super Bowl for Long Snappers, VEGAS XXXII on May 12th-13th, 2018.

Long Snappers from AZ, TX, CO, CA, KS,  & IL all traveled to his camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

Here are the RSI Scores from the AZ Camp…

Looking at the days results, I was most impressed by the steady progression of this group. From where we started in the morning session, to where we ended in Camp Finals, it is evident that every Rubio Long Snapper achieved new personal bests or found new techniques that will play a key role in their development moving forward.

This Group of Rubio Long Snappers rose to the occasion all snapping their best at the end of the day.

Camp Champion Dustin Inness and Instructor Casey Hales

The Overall Camp Champion was Dustin Inness (accuracy) and Ryan Jurcak (Speed). Dustin seemed to have this sort of quiet confidence all day with a slight smirk that never left his face. Keys to his success – terrific attitude, he paced himself well not snapping too many balls before competition, and most definitely built momentum throughout the day and snapped better and better as the pressure mounted crushing RSI testing and receiving a 2 seed in the Finalists Bracket. Ryan Jurcak snapped like a man possed to do one thing, snap the ball as hard as possible. Very raw talent here with a little form work will be on his way to great things.

The Speed competition late in the day had the more .75 snaps than the entire day combined.

Jurcak, Hudak, and DeRosier who were all dipping down into the .68-.72 range consistently.

Far an above the most fun and competitive group I have see in a while. Additional standouts include Bryce Felt, Dustin Inness, Declan Capposola and Joe Kelly.

Live Snapping Champions – Hudak, and DeRosier stole the show with their consistency in live punt and pat drills. Both looked like machines, snapping pearl after pearl without loosing focus.

A couple of key take aways from our film session, remember “don’t think about the distance.” Remind yourself first of the form and technique that will be your guide to harnessing your full power. Flexibility was a huge theme today.

Athletes who demonstrated exceptional  footwork and speed down field: Jurcak, Headberg, Joe Kelly, and Trevor Heid,

Ryan Jurcaz

Class of 2018

Ryan Jurcaz- Ryan showed true strength an raw ability to snap the ball well under .75, to .70. Ryan dominated the speed competition and if he starts to lock down his spiral…watch out! He is someone I would want to watch. Quick on his feet and fast downfield. He has a D1 Frame now and is close to being great. Need to focus on balance and tighten up release point to achieve his full power. If you start and finish with your weight back, and can fall back on heels he will only improve accuracy and speed.

Charles DeRosier – Flat out showed up today! Great all around performance. Easily one of the top snappers at the camp. Had one of the Top RSI Scores with 22.37. When you get set, it is is glorious.  Reminder Be confident every time. Snap it as hard as he can everytime. Big things ahead for DeRosier.

Class of 2019

Ethan Hudak

Ethan Hudak – One of the top snappers of the day! Form is air tight. Really like how quick his hands are and how he uses his low center of gravity to unlock more power. Hudak has a good athletic build, and size. Highest RSI Total with a score of 46.58

Dustin Inness – Well rounded snapper with above average athleticism. Really came into his own late in the day and surged to the top of the accuracy and speed competitions.

Nathan Headberg – Made a huge jump in overall RSI testing with 25.61 finishing in the Top 6 and finished in the Finals again Inness and took 2nd Place Overall in Target Competition.

Class of 2020

Bryce Felt

Bryce Felt: Smooth form and lighting quick hands helped this Rubio Snapper Consistently dip into the .75 range throughout the day, Bryce owned accuracy drills and live snapping like a Champion. Continue to remind yourself to get set and trust yourself with your speed and power. The sky is the limit for this one

AJ Laux – Big Frame – Get Set, stay square after the snap (don’t look back at your snap!!! and you will be better every time you snap moving forward

Mitch Carmer – Stood out to me with his quick hands and tight spiral. When he is compact with his arms diving through he dominates.

NOTABLES: Trevor Heid and Dominic Duggan

Class of 2021

Declan Cappasola

Declan Cappasola – Beautiful spiral and excellent form for this maturing young snapper. Cappasola really dominated speed drills and competition finishing in the .75 group finalists. He continued to turn heads as his confidence grew throughout the day. Big key for him, get set and really dive through to tap into your top speed overtime.

Grant Sands – Explosive Long Snapper with a long frame. Excellent spiral and power. Avoid hoping and work on sliding more balanced with a hard pop slide and leg lock out.

Will Mastler – Top of my list for Most Improved during the Rubio Long Snapping Spring AZ Camp. One of the most determined, coachable, and confident young snappers in the class of 2021.

Top RSI Scores:

  1. Ethan Hudak 46.58
  2. Dustin Inness 33.33
  3. Ryan Jurcak 30.14
  4. Winden Trimble
  5. Nathan Headberg
  6. Charles DeRosier 22.37
    1. Next closest score *Bryce Felt with 22.22

Very impressed with this groups overall skill level and work ethic.
