Recap Article and Video of the 12th Annual Spring Event in Las Vegas

Long Snappers came out on May 10-11 to attend the Rubio Long Snapping Camp in Las Vegas from from over half of the USA to get the best  Long Snapping instruction and exposure in the country for Long Snappers. Long Snappers, and their parents/guardians, were instructed on the field on Satuday with competition on Sunday. Each Long Snapper was filmed and will have a player profile provided for them on

The overall winner of the camp was Jordan Ober (NV, ’15). Ober was exceptional all weekend in Vegas. The hometown hero snapped a great, accurate ball throughout the two days. He is snapping with confidence and dips into the D1 range. Incredible accuracy and has been improving a great amount in a very short amount of time. Excellent attitude.

The 12 Long Snappers that made the finals round on Sunday due to their exceptional RSI (Rubio Standard Index – score divided by speed with bonus points for more speed) were….Jordan Ober, AJ Carty, George Madden, Grant Gluhaich, Jake Knight, Tommy Bancroft, Liam McCullough, John Aloma, Harrison Goebel, Darren Diffee, Logan Hamilton & Michael Poujol. All were great but Ober just outlasted them all.

TOP 2015 Long Snappers (to see any profiles, simply go to under Player Rankings)…

  • Blake Ferguson continues to dominate the art of Long Snapping. He looks like a full grown man and is snapping like one as well. Ball is very smooth, accurate and fast. Said it once and I will say it again, LSU got lucky grabbing him early.
  • Liam McCullough made it into the finals against Ober and could have easily taken the title. Kid is massive and snaps a nice ball that jumps out at you. Four scholarships and counting…and all well deserved.
  • Garrett Wilson  has been putting on some very good weight and that has helped him snapping immensely. Kid is on fire and was performing so well, I invited him to the Event Elite, right on the spot.
  • Ryan Simmons is another Long Snapper that was so impressive that he was selected to Event Elite right on the spot. Great accuracy and was snapping hard all weekend.
  • AJ Carty was ripping the ball back to the punter and snapping the ball with a ton of confidence.
  • Grant Gluhaich was ON FIRE all weekend in Vegas. Kid can snap as anyone in the country…easily. The bigger he gets, the better he will be.

  • George Madden is built like a college linebacker and snaps like a college Long Snapper.
  • Nick Cox performed very well and was excellent for his first Rubio Long Snapping camp.
  • Michael Poujol might have the most upside of any Long Snapper in the country.

  • John Aloma was the only sophomore to make it to the finals round and it was well deserved. He came to Vegas with a strong mindset and really dominated from start to finish.
  • Harrison Freeman is a massive man with the most potential in his class. Kid could jump and take the top spot soon.
  • Johnny Den Bleyker could be the most athletic Long Snapper in his class. Tons of talent on this Long Snapper.
