  • You must not have more than one bad snap all season (snap that gets by the punter or the holder).

Top 2018 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2018 Long Snappers in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Spencer Luce, WA
Spencer showed me some good things at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in WA on April 24, 2016. He is a Long Snapper with nice, large frame and has the ability to snap the ball with excellent power. I REALLY need to see him snap the ball with a tight spiral. Ball comes back quick and hard BUT if there is no spiral, it will be very tricky to catch for the punters. Spiral is going to be key. He locks it down and he moves way up the charts.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Ross Reiter, AZ
Reiter did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. I purposely put him under a lot of pressure situations and he dominated all of them. Ball is beyond crisp and just gorgeous to watch. He always does an excellent job of making sure he accomplished what you want him to do. Ask Reiter to do something and just consider it done. Built strong and tough. He is very close to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper.

 

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado)
Jesse Hooper, UT
Hooper showed me some great things at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He moves with good aggression on his feet. Like to see him increase his 40 time a bit but the kid moves with passion and rage….I love it. Love to see him focus on locking down his spiral and leading with his elbows to create more whip. With as much power as he snaps with, he should EASILY be under .80 but the lack of spiral really crushed the speed. TONS of upside and he is right on the cusp. Keep a very close eye on this kid.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Karsten Battles, TX
Battles did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a Long Snapper with good athleticism that can be a factor going downfield on punt coverage. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and already looks the part of a college athlete. Love to see him focus on really getting set and making sure he doesn’t rush the process. Tends to jump the gun a bit and that will play with his spiral and accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential and can easily be one of the best in his class. Watch him at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Ross Hinders, IA
Hinders did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a very athletic Long Snapper that moves well on his feet. Starting form is solid and he does a good job of getting his lower half fully involved in the snapping process. Like to see him lean back a bit more to make sure he doesn’t fall forward which can impact his accuracy and consistency. Getting fully set and leaning back while continuing to put on size will move him up. Quiet and deadly with his snaps.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Evan Gibson, LA
Evan did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016 and at the Underclassmen Invitational at the IMG Academy in FL. Body is looking very solid and he is built strong. Mature for his age. He has some very quick hands that really get the ball out of the gate quickly. Love to see him focus on slow motion drills to make sure he gets his lower half fully involved to gain more speed on the ball. With his frame and form, he could easily be under .8 by XXIX.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Roen McCullough, OH
Roen did well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. Body is great and, when he is on, he can put a hole in the punter. He can easily be the fastest Long Snapper in the country for his age or the year above him. Making sure he is not over-gripping the ball so his spiral stays perfect and handling pressure will be the two biggest factors I check for this fall and at VEGAS XXIX in January. The ball is in Roen’s court and I know he can do it. When it clicks, he will take the top spot and it won’t be close.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Matthew Aloni, NY
Big jump in the rankings and well deserved for Aloni after watching him at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. Snaps are crisp, clean and very catchable. Form is solid and his body is able to pass an eyeball test quickly. Very good upside on Aloni. Love to see him focus on snapping with total CONFIDENCE and making sure he is whipping his arms through to create more overall speed on the ball. Like to see him under .78 by this fall and VEGAS XXIX.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Michael Vojvodich, VA
Michael did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC. He is a VERY athletic Long Snapper that can fly downfield. Absolute factor on punt coverage and can be a game changer in coverage. Form is solid and he snaps with good power. Love to see him focus on completely locking down his spiral by VEGAS XXIX and making sure he is always going back instead of up and back, at times. Massive upside and I love what I see from Michael. Keep a close eye on him….TOP 12?????

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Oscar Shadley, FL, Offer to Marshall!
Shadley did really well at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. First off, his frame is excellent for his age…he practically looks like he could play in college right now. Upside on him at this point is off the charts. Ball is accurate, he has good speed and he handles pressure well. Locking down the spiral and making sure he is fully in control of his consistency moves him into the top spot by XXIX in January.

FULL article from the Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp in NC (11/22)

The rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping fall Camp in NC.

Long Snappers came in from VA, GA, SC, OH, FL, MD, PA TN, NY and, of course, NC to learn from the best and get the most exposure possible for Long Snappers.

Next ranking opportunity will be in TX on December 7th and at VEGAS XXV.

Griffiths, Tyler

Tyler Griffiths

The best 2015 Long Snapper at the camp was Tyler Griffiths. The recent NC State commit left no doubt he was the best overall Long Snapper at the camp when he won the speed competition and then the whole camp. Great attitude, solid frame and smooth snap. The kid has it all.

  • Garrett Wilson showed great athleticism and extremely quick hands.
  • Erik Lawson has a massive frame and is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in his class.
  • Brandon Fields might be the most accurate Long Snapper in the class and almost won in NC and GA

Ben Wyatt

Ben Wyatt

The best 2016 Long Snapper at the camp was Ben Wyatt. Ben has been improving drastically over the past year and he was absolutely dominant at the fall camp in NC. Snaps D1 speeds right now and rarely misses. One to watch for sure.

  • Harrison Freeman was smooth and accurate all day long. Just letting the ball go will be huge for him. Passes the eye ball test quickly.
  • Charles McDonough was exceptional all camp and started his push towards the TOP 12.
  • Jackson Quiggle got hot and was throwing immense heat at the end of the camp. Major improvement in the past couple of months.
  • Skyler Korinek is right on the cusp of greatness. Couple tweaks and he will crush other Long Snappers in his class.
  • Sion Harrington has all of the tools to be a great one. Watch him closely.

Notables: Kyad Agha, Jacob Keith, Hayden Moore, John Murphy, Ethan Ray, Javon McHenry, Mitchell Sepe, Gabe Skrobot , Troy Smith and Sean Somers.

Mitch Hall

Mitch Hall

The best 2017 Long Snapper at the camp was Mitch Hall. Mitch was on fire all day and was snapping the ball with a ton of confidence. He has definitely regained his mojo and is one to watch at VEGAS XXV!

  • Ryan Culbertson is smooth and improving by the second. Love his attitude and how well he listens.
  • Kyle Davis was very impressive with good accuracy and speed all day long. Built very long.
  • Austin Reeves did well with his overall speed and placement of the ball. Love his frame and attitude.

Notables: Gunnar Daniel, Parker Carlton, Colin Scott and Ryan Watkins

Turner, Noah

Noah Turner

The best 2018 Long Snapper at the camp was Noah Tuner. Noah was great all day. He can already snap in the mid .7s and snaps with a lot of power. Really like his attitude and his drive.

  • Oscar Shadley showed great athleticism and tons of potential. Once he widens out a bit, he will dominate.

Notables: Drew McDaniel, Chase McPherson
