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….

Recap of the CA Summer Camp (6/28/18)

Samarzich, Rubio and Hawkins

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on June 28th, 2018 for their summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, GA, IL, SC (Top Gun Camp), CA (College, TOP 12, Underclassmen Invitational) and TX!

Long Snappers from three states 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 champions of the camp were Kameron Hawkins (speed) and Simon Samarzich (overall)! Samarzich has recently committed to Washington State on full scholarship and he proved in CA that the Cougs got a great one. He is one of the most consistent Long Snappers ever to go through Rubio Long Snapping. Ball hovers in the low .7s at all times, he can move well on his feet and he has, easily, one of the greatest attitudes of all Rubio Long Snappers in the country. Samarzich is the real deal and just never stops improving.

The finals round matchups were Simon Samarzich (57.14), Cruz Rubio (41.56), Bryce Felt (41.03), Andrew Gonneville (38.82), Jack Landherr (34.21) and Aaron Estrada (33.33). You can see the full finals video below….

Peter Bowden was on fire all day and has already been moved to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. Kid is a flat out stud and can snap at the next level right now.

Jack Landherr throws severe heat and simply never misses when he gets his eyes all the way through to the punter. Tremendous talent and upside.

JJ Lindsay is a very smooth lefty that is always improving. Massive potential and I love his work ethic.

Recap of the CA Spring Camp (3/4/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on March 4th, 2018 for their fall camp. Rubio Long Snapping will be traveling around the country this spring with stops in CA, NC, WA, NJ, AZ, IL, GA and TX with all camps leading right into VEGAS XXXII on May 12-13, 2018!

Long Snappers from CA, OH, CO, OR, AZ & NV all traveled to this camp to get the best instruction and exposure in the world of Long Snapping.

The overall champions of the camp were Ryan Aguilar (overall) and Simon Samarzich (speed). Ryan was dominant with his beyond smooth snaps that just appear in the punter’s hands. Form is good and he handles pressure extremely well. He barely even missed one time in the finals. Tremendous snapping when it counted the most.

You can see the full finals video with Aidan Livingston, Ryan Aguilar, Jack Landherr, Simon Samarzich, Brendan Beattie and Jacob Garcia below…

Morgan White

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS
Morgan White left no doubt he was the best senior Long Snapper in attendance. He is strong and snaps a very powerful ball. Morgan hovered in the .7s all day and moves well on his feet. Kid is aggressive on the field and can easily play at the next level.

Niko Johnson shows great determination and moves extremely well on his feet. This JC Long Snapper has all of the tools to play at the next level.

Jake Mauch can pass an eyeball test from a 1/4 mile way and has all the potential in the world. Once it clicks for him, he will dominate.

Notables: Josh Garcia

TOP 2019 LONG SNAPPERS

Simon Samarzich

Simon Samarzich continued his dominance and left no doubt he is one of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country. He can move very extremely well on his feet, snaps with confidence and handles pressure like a champ. He ended up winning the speed competition and can snap at the next level right now.

Jack Landherr was on fire in CA. Body is great and when he gets his upper body all the way through, he absolutely crushes the competition. Upside is off the charts and I like his attitude. Kid is a flat out stud.

Ryan Aguilar is one of the smoothest Long Snappers in the country and ended up winning the overall competition! Pressure means nothing to him and when he catches fire, it is over for anyone going against him. He is so smooth it doesn’t even appear like he is doing anything and then, BOOM!, the ball crushes the punters hands.

Jack Landherr

Peter Bowden left no doubt he is one of the top juniors in the country. Great frame, moves well on his feet and I love his attitude.

Nathan Weneta looked great in CA. Pure athlete that is extremely smooth on his feet. Doesn’t even look like he is putting in any effort and he just chews up ground. Form is excellent and he didn’t have a snap over .78 all day long.

Aidan Livingston is an accurate Long Snapper with a good spiral. Aidan has the highest RSI score of the day and was the #1 seed go into the finals. Smooth and accurate Long Snapper that moves really well going forward.

Dean Lau is a machine on his feet and snaps with great power. Going straight back is going to make him unstoppable.

Brendan Beattie came out from Ohio and snapped some heat in CA. He can fly on his feet and when his spiral is on, he can crush the punter.

Andrew Gonneville has all of the potential in the world. Reaches through very well and can rip the ball back to the punter.

Matthew Rhodes was solid with his large frame and great balance.

NOTABLES: Danny Dixon, Nathan Hedberg, Josiah Hirsch, JJ Lindsay, Koby Tryggestad and Jesse Vasquez

TOP 2020 LONG SNAPPERS

Kameron Hawkins

Kameron Hawkins had a very solid day in CA. Body is getting stronger and he rips the ball back to the punter with zero wasted movement. He snaps and the ball just appears in the punters hands. One of the most consistent Long Snappers in the country…in any class.

Jacob Garcia is an extremely smooth Long Snapper with one of the most catchable balls in his class. The ball will stick to the punters hands. Accuracy is very solid as he made it into the finals. All the tools to be one of the greats.

Cruz Rubio did very well in CA. He is a very thick and strong Long Snapper that moves pretty darn well on his feet. He has no problem keeping the ball in the mid .7s and could easily play at the next level if he keeps improving at this pace.

Jacob Garcia

Jaden Sanchez is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and can rip the ball back. Great attitude.

Michael Munoz has great potential and I am a big fan of his frame.

Bryce Felt impressed me with his attitude and how he continues to improve. Love his drive and he can get the ball under .79.

Tony Villareal is beyond smooth and snaps a very catchable ball.

Andrew Wells is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and can crush a punter when he leans back.

AJ Laux is a monster on the field and snaps a powerful ball back to the punter.

Davis Salom is big, powerful and is improving by the second.

Michael Tokos is coming along nicely and I love his attitude. Smooth and consistent Long Snapper.

NOTABLES: Nick Barcelos, Troy Sicaeros, Josh Hilton and Cody White

TOP 2021 LONG SNAPPERS

JT Greep

JT Greep had a great day in CA. Body is strong and he can already hit in the .7s. Smooth Long Snapper with excellent upside.

Top 2019 Long Snappers by Region

Here is a look at the TOP 2019 Long Snapper in each region of the country.

NORTHWEST (States of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska)
Mike Zahara, WA
Super laid back kid. Didn’t get overly worked up about anything. Kept his cool and took instruction well. Thought it was a great sign from a kid of his age, not getting frazzled or frustrated. Really good form. Has long frame that can fill out nicely. Once he puts on some muscle and snaps hard, he will be great.

 

PACIFIC (California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii)
Simon Samarzich, CA
Simon had a good weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is a true athlete that can be as good, or great, as he chooses to be with his Long Snapping. Once he fully dedicates himself to snapping, he could easily take the top spot and run with it. Accuracy is solid and his form is excellent for his age. Handles pressure well and could have actually won the whole thing in the desert. Like to see some more speed on the ball and that will come with consistency of snapping motion and size. Tremendous potential on Simon.

 

SOUTHWEST (New Mexico and Texas)
Hayden Hood, TX
Hood was excellent at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class and showed no mercy in TX. His confidence is starting to come along VERY nicely and I love it. Needs to make sure he is focus on gaining some size as that will assist him in blocking, getting down field and the overall speed of the ball. Kid is very good and just looks to get better. Keep a very close eye on him this fall and definitely at VEGAS XXIX.

 

NORTH CENTRAL (North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska)
Tyler Shaw, WI
Really liked what I saw out of Tyler at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He is a long athlete that is snapping with good power and confidence. Love to see him focus on leaning back more so he goes towards the punter and not up/forward. Falling forward will cause the ball to rise a bit and lose some accuracy. Kid has tremendous upside and can easily be one of the top Long Snappers in his class. WATCH HIM at VEGAS XXIX.

 

SOUTH CENTRAL (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana)
Caden Bolz, KS
Caden did well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in TX on July 7, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good power in his hands. Ball is quick and he has no problem hovering in the .8s at all times. By VEGAS XXIX, I want to make sure he is getting his eyes/head all the way through as this will greatly increase the overall speed of the ball AND the accuracy. Kid is dripping with potential.

 

MID AMERICA (Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky)
Jude Pedrozo, OH
Jude continues to impress me and didn’t let up at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in IL on July 9, 2016. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and is snapping with a great deal of confidence. The upside on this kid is off the charts and he could make the TOP 12 in January if he continues to snap well. Overall accuracy and consistency is what I will be focused on seeing at VEGAS XXIX. He needs to know he can be one of the greats.

 

NORTHEAST (Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island)
Austin Sullivan, NY
I liked what I saw out of Austin at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He is very large Long Snapper for his age and has a good snapping motion. Very fluid Long Snapper. I like his form and I want him to trust it. If he was to trust his form and really let the ball fly, he will be able to get well under .90 by fall and definitely by XXIX in January. TONS OF POTENTIAL on Austin and when his legs get fully locked and timed up, he will dominate. LOVE HIS ATTITUDE.

 

ATLANTIC (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia)
Dominic Serapiglia, PA
Dominic did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping summer camp in NC on July 11, 2016. He is a thick and strong Long Snapper with good overall form. Ball is tight and he is showing some good accuracy. Like to see him increase the speed of his legs as they are just a tad behind his very quick hands. If he can get his timing locked down, he will be snapping under .77 by VEGAS XXIX…easily. Increasing his athleticism will push him way up the rankings as well. Good upside and always improving.

 

SOUTHEAST (Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Florida)
Quentin Skinner, GA
Skinner, AKA Mad Dog, had a solid weekend at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXVIII Event on May 21-22, 2016. He can EASILY snap a D1 ball right now when he is on. Every once in awhile, he will forget to follow through and the ball will die. If he can fix that, and I know he can, he can be a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper by next Vegas if not sooner. CONSISTENCY will be his biggest thing to focus on.

Article & Rankings from the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in CA

The rankings are completed for ALL Long Snappers that participated in the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in CA!

Long Snappers came out from CA, NV, AZ, WY, WA, UT and CO to get the best instruction and most exposure for Long Snappers in the country.

Next ranking opportunity will be at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in TX on March 15th.

Hoffman, Harrison

Harrison Hoffman

The overall winner of the camp was Harrison Hoffman. Harrison is headed to the Air Force Academy and will do great there. He is a smooth Long Snapper with a frame that will easily be able to pack on the pounds in the coming years. Great kid and always learning

TOP 2015 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Jordan Ober snaps so the ball is crisp, tight and moves quickly back to the punter. I would love to see him lower his butt just a tad to get even more speed on the ball. That’s a very simple fix that can be adjusted in less than a week. I also love his attitude.
  • Cody Block is one of the most athletic Long Snappers in his class. He moves very well on his feet, no matter what he is doing. His hands are extremely quick. He gets the ball out of the gate as well as anyone else in the country. I would love to see him focus on getting fully set and making sure he is going back instead of just straight up. This will increase the speed of the ball and keep him in the low .7s to even .6s over the course of a day.
  • Jonathan Goldstein is built long and his form has really progressed over the years. He has a frame that can put up some very good weight over the next year. Goldstein uses his whole body really well and he can snap the ball in the .6s at times on punts. He needs to make sure his consistency with that speed is locked down and that he is getting the same release point with all of his snaps. This kid can really snap. Watch him.
  • Peter Comaroto‘s form is excellent and he is always improving. Getting his footwork down and continuing to build his body will help in the long run. It is fun to watch this kid snap. UMASS is lucky to have him in the fall.
  • Richard Wilcox is fantastic when loose. The less thinking he does, the better he is. I love when he drives his elbows and creates some good whip and speed on the ball. He is built thick so he will have to really make sure he stays loose and doesn’t become too bulky which will slow the ball down. He has a great attitude.
  • Matt Foley is snapping the ball with confidence and is sure of himself. He looked good. I REALLY just need to see him focus on one snap and let it fly out of his hands full speed. Once he does that, I want it EVERY SINGLE TIME. He is as close as possible to a 5 Star Rubio Long Snapper. This kid is good.

TOP 2016 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Johnny Den Bleyker was smooth, strong and fast. Den Bleyker has it all right now. The bigger he gets, the better he will be. Love when he gets fully set. Very dominant at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. UCLA got a good one.
  • Damon Johnson had a great day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. Gets in a groove and is very dominant. His misses are becoming less and less frequent. Big thing for him is to just snap the ball as hard as he can at all times. Kid is flat out good and he will make a college coach very happy in the next couple of years.
  • Conner Kirkegaard had a much better day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. When he lets the ball just fly out of his hands, he is exceptional. Controlling his release point will be huge for him gaining accuracy. Speed is right on target. WORK HORSE.
  • Koby Walsh had another great day at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. He is right in the mix with all of the great ones in his class. Now, he needs to lock down the consistency and take it to the next level. Show me he can win a camp and separate himself from those above him. Moves really well on his feet. Body is coming along nicely. I will be testing his blocking and movement a ton at VEGAS XXVI.
  • Jake Cesear – Simple: he gets to about 210 lbs and he will have a scholarship. Reminds me a lot of Rubio Long Snappers Aaron Brewer (Denver Broncos) and Chase Dominguez (Utah). TONS of upside. Kid is almost ready for a scholarship now. SMOOOOOOOOTH.
  • James Workman had another big jump in the rankings and well deserved. Workman is really locking down his consistency and is headed towards one of the greats in his class. The harder he snaps, the better he will be. Lowering his butt will help a bit to gain more speed and power. Kid is filled with potential. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXVI. EVENT ELITE?
  • Donald Reiter is coming along nicely and had a good day at the Rubio Long Snapping camp in CA. Needs to really focus on being as quick as possible going back instead of gradually going up. Very good attitude.

TOP 2017 LONG SNAPPERS

  • Thomas Fletcher is just flat out good. Really good. If I was a college coach, I would be looking at this kid VERY, VERY closely right now. The bigger he gets, the better he will be. Just trust me on this, watch him. It would not surprise me to see him win VEGAS XXVI.
  • Koltin Anderson did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. He is snapping the ball with confidence and good power. Like to see him continue to work on eliminating the hitch while still snapping full power. Strong bodied. Great attitude.
  • Alex Michaelsen is snapping the ball with good power and strength. Needs to make sure he is not over-gripping the ball so he keeps his spiral on lock down. Keeping his back flat will help with overall speed and power. VERY good potential and definitely one to watch.
  • Devin Noth of Colorado did well. Plain and simple, the bigger Noth gets, the better he will be. Kid has very good form and is snapping the ball well. He is snapping the ball with very good power and accuracy. Kid is flat out good. Keep a very close eye on him over the next two years and beyond.

TOP 2018 LONG SNAPPERS & FUTURE STARS

  • Ross Reiter left no doubt he was the best in his class and it wasn’t even close. Kid is strong, has a great attitude and snaps with power.
  • Brendan Bentley showed QUICK improvement in a very short amount of time. Body is strong and his form is good. Loved what I saw at the Rubio Long Snapping spring camp in CA. Snaps the ball with good power. Like to see him sit down a bit more and make sure he is leaning back. VERY good potential and you should really keep a close eye on him.
  • Simon Samarzich continues to just plug along and dominate his age group in CA. VEGAS XXVI will be big to prove he is dominant at the national level. Wouldn’t put money against him showing up and snapping bullets.
