Recap of the Polynesian Bowl Selections

Simon Samarzich

After two great days of competing, two Long Snappers stepped up and earned their tickets to the Polynesian Bowl on January 19th, 2019 in at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii! This bowl game has quickly become one of the top bowl games in the country for high school athletes. This year, the Polynesian Bowl will be aired live on CBS! 

Jack Landherr

The finals round matchups were Simon Samarzich (CA, ’19) vs. Peter Bowden (CA, ’19) and Drew Little (NC, ’19) vs. Jack Landherr (CA, ’19). This group of Rubio Long Snappers was overflowing with talent as Samarzich is committed to Washington State on full scholarship, Drew Little is committed to North Carolina on full scholarship, Landherr has offers from Army, Navy and Air Force while Bowden has offers from Wisconsin, Northwestern, Penn & San Diego. Obviously, all of these Long Snappers deserved the spot but we had to have two winners and the two that stepped up in the end were Simon Samarzich and Jack Landherr. Very proud of all of the Long Snappers and can’t wait to see them represent themselves, their schools, their communities, their states and Rubio Long Snapping in Hawaii!

Here is the first matchup between Samarzich and Bowden….

For the overall RSI Scores from the CA Camp, please go HERE

Speed Champion, Jac Casasante and Overall Champion, Max Nieland 

The overall winner of the camp was Max Nieland (CA, ’18). Max was solid all day long in CA and really caught fire late in the day. On the Target, in the finals, he only missed a couple of times and his misses were by inches. His accuracy is excellent, consistency is off the charts and he has an excellent attitude. Max does an excellent job of not remaining stagnant and is always improving. Very proud of Max and how far he has come with his Long Snapping.

The finals in CA were between Peter Bowden (56.76), JJ Lindsay (55.26), Matt Tokos (46.15), Max Nieland (45.32), Cruz Rubio (43.42) and Simon Samarzich (41.67). You can see the full finals video below….

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
– Jac Casasante was the speed champion of the day with 15 yard snaps in the low .6s! His attitude is incredible, he can run with the best of them and his ball is obviously at college speeds right now. He is going to be a great pick up for a college coach.
– Matt Tokos had a great day making it into the finals of the speed and accuracy competitions. Excellent attitude and one of the most consistent Long Snappers in his class. He is going to be a great asset to a coach on and off the field.
– Gabriel Cervantes is a long, pure athlete that is improving week to week. He is a coachable Long Snapper with excellent upside and a frame that can easily put on another forty pounds throughout college.
– Hunter Becker is a smart Long Snapper that is thick, strong and has great form. High academics make him a big pickup for the right college. Always improving.
– Morgan White has great power and the ability to really rip the ball back to the punter. I was impressed with his size and upside. Locking down the spiral and consistency will be huge for him.
– Chance Nelson is a great JC Long Snapper that runs like the wind and has solid accuracy with every ball he snaps to the punter.
– Robert Fiene is a strong and athletic Long Snapper with great upper body follow through.

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS
– Simon Samarzich is a pure athlete with great form and excellent consistency. Made it into the finals, again, and showed great snaps throughout the day. Smooth and accurate with an excellent attitude.
– Luke Rizzo looked very powerful and was snapping the ball with some solid confidence all day. When he snaps with absolute full power, he is easily one of the best in his class.
– JJ Lindsay looked extremely smooth throughout the day and left no doubt he has been working hard and smart the past couple of months. Keep a close eye on him this fall and at VEGAS XXXI.
– Jack Landherr has the ability to be one of the best Long Snappers in his class. Good frame that is strong and still has room to put on some good size over the next two years of high school.
– Dean Lau is one the purest athletes in his class. He has put on some good size and has quick hands to get the ball back to the punter with good pop.
– Peter Bowden had the top RSI of the camp and was impressive in CA. Built very long with room to put on some good weight. Form is good and he can get the ball ball back in the high .7s to low .8s. Once he makes sure he is really getting his upper body all the way through and not turning so quickly after the snap, he will dominate his class. Keep an eye on Bowden.
– Kyler Greenway looked solid with good form and consistency. Listens well and is very coachable. Good upside on Kyler.
Notables: Josiah Hirsch, Nathan Hedberg, Brian Rea, Jesse Vasquez, Nick Wade

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS
– Kameron Hawkins continues on his path to greatness. Form is excellent, ball is clean and his hands are quick. He is now able to get the ball, consistently, under .78 and he shows no signs of letting his foot off the gas. Great Long Snapper on and off the field.
– Cruz Rubio is a big and powerful Long Snapper that can already get the ball in the .7s. Moves well on his feet and has good form. Making sure he is leaning back, following through with his fingers and keeping up with his athleticism could push him to the top of his class.
– Aaron Estrada looked very solid athletically and with his snapping. His hands are quick and that really helps get the ball out of the gate well. Estrada is a very hard working Long Snapper that will be an asset to any team he is on.
– Michael Munoz handles pressure really well and has all of the tools to be a great one. Built with good length and a smooth snap, the sky is the limit for Munoz.
– Jaden Sanchez is beyond strong and built for his age. Moves well on his feet and has one of the most powerful balls in his class. Locking down the spiral is going to be massive for Sanchez moving up the rankings.
– Cody White had a great day in CA. I thought he looked solid at the Underclassmen Invitational and he went beyond that on Sunday. Really impressed with the direction “Drago” is headed.
– Michael Tokos is beyond consistent and might be the overall quickest Long Snapper his class. I love his attitude and how the ball gets out of the gate. Getting fully set and putting on some size will be huge for Tokos.
– Tony Villarreal looked beyond smooth in CA. His ball just flies out of his hands and appears in the punters hand. I love to watch him snap and I know his punter will love catching snaps from him.
Notables: Brendan Duffy, Davis Salom, Troy Sicaeros

TOP 2021 & 2022 LONG SNAPPERS
– Cameron Warchuck showed great speed for his age with snaps to the punter already hitting in the .7s. Big and strong Long Snapper with great upside.
– JT Greep was solid with nice form, a great attitude and consistent speeds.
– Jamie Feldermann has good form and a very accurate ball.
– Cody Allen showed great athleticism and accuracy.

Recap of the CA Fall Camp (10/30/16)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to California on October 30th, 2016 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling the country this fall instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the biggest event of the year, VEGAS XXIX!

Long Snappers from CA, NV, AZ, CO and NH all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.

The overall camp champion was Noah Rodriguez-Trammell (CA, ’17)! NRT was on fire all day and simply great throughout the competition segment. He is snapping with a great deal of confidence and racked up his third Rubio Long Snapping regional camp victory. Obviously, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him take the grand prize this January in Vegas. His victory in CA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can actually watch the finals between Noah Rodriguez-Trammel and Andrew Toothman below from the live feed on the Rubio Long Snapping Periscope.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be  NC (11/20), TX (12/4), AZ (12/11) and GA (12/18)

Top 2017 Long Snappers

Alex Michaelsen

Alex Michaelsen

Alex Michaelsen was very sharp out in CA. He is snapping with more confidence and looks like he thickened up a bit. Ball comes out hot and he has shown some good improvement.

Scott Stevens was outstanding in CA. MAJOR improvement and might be the top JC Long Snapper in the country. He can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile away. WATCH HIM CLOSELY AT VEGAS XXIX.

Harrison Hoffman is a great JC Long Snapper and easily one of the smoothest in his class. Kid is just flat out good all around.

Gavin Campbell has put on some size and was snapping great power. Even his misses were rockets. He locks down his consistency a bit more and it is game over for the rest of his class.

Chancellor Nelson is a very long JC Long Snapper that rips the ball back to the punter. He should be able to dominate VEGAS XXIX once he locks down his snapping motion.

Koltin Anderson had a great day in CA and could have easily ended up winning the whole thing. Body is thick and he is snapping with good power.

Karson Thomas catches a good wave and he is awesome. Great frame and tons of upside.

Johnny Fuentes had waves of brilliance and I love his attitude. Once he locks down his accuracy and consistency, he will move way up the rankings.

Andrew Toothman had the best camp of his career. Form is good and he is very accurate. Made it all the way to the accuracy finals.

Top 2018 Long Snappers

Brendan Bentley

Brendan Bentley

Brendan Bentley came out from NV and did not disappoint. His body is thick and strong. He snaps with a great deal of power and the ball really jumps back to the punter. The more he gets his hands and body set, the more dominant he is. Great talent.

Max Nieland is snapping with a lot of confidence right now and I love it. Slowly but surely moving his way up the rankings and can easily make a big name for himself this January at VEGAS XXIX.

Kyle Petrucci continues to ooze with potential. Passes an eyeball test quickly. Love to see him snap with more confidence and get his body to go straight back instead of up and back.

James Townsend is an extremely athletic Long Snapper with tons of potential. Once he gets his lower half fully involved, he will dominate his class. Kid is good and on the verge of being great.

Matt Tokos is one of the happiest Long Snappers on the planet and he should be, kid snaps pearls back to the punter. Great form, he is thick and headed in the right direction.

Robert Fiene is an athletic Long Snapper with good power. Lots of upside.

Andrew Domingo really impressed me in CA with great pop and movement. Love to see him put on some more lbs by VEGAS XXIX.

Top 2019 Long Snappers

 

Nathan Weneta

Nathan Weneta

Nathan Weneta was outstanding in CA. Moves VERY well on his feet and is a true student of the position. Ball is crisp and almost at the D1 level right now and he still has two more years of high school football left.

Simon Samarzich is a true athlete that can snap. Might be able to play multiple positions at a smaller college in the future. Love to see him focus on his Long Snapping to get all of the kinks worked out by VEGAS. The potential on Simon is simply off the charts.

Adrian Tamayo can really let the ball fly. Love to see him put on some more size by VEGAS XXIX to gain even more power. Snapping with some great confidence and shows me good things all around.

Mason Peterson did really well in CA. Snaps the ball in the mid .8s and should be able to get the ball into the .7s by VEGAS XXIX. Handles pressure well and I like his attitude.

Top 2020 Long Snappers

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins has excellent form and showed he could, and should, win a Rubio Long Snapping camp very soon. CONFIDENCE and dominating pressure will be keys for Kam in VEGAS. Kam is an extremely accurate Long Snapper that will continue to get better with more strength and athleticism. Snaps the ball as well as anyone I have seen at his age. Overall speed on the ball and his legs will be key in dominating his class throughout the years.

Aaron Estrada did well in CA. Body is growing like a weed and he handles pressure well. Moves well on his feet and he is snapping with some good power. Trusting his form and letting the ball go will be huge as we progress through the fall, VEGAS and his high school career.

Jaden Sanchez is an athletic Long Snapper with great power in his body. When he snaps with confidence, he really lets the ball fly out of his hands. Locking down his snapping motion will help a ton by VEGAS XXIX. Sanchez was impressive in CA.

Cruz Rubio is a strong Long Snapper with quick hands. Ball can get back to the punter in the .7s WHEN he gets his eyes through and gets fully set. Great potential on this Long Snapper from CA. Moves well on his feet for his size.

Notables: Jacob Garcia, Tony Villareal, Michael Tokos, Zane Maningo
