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….

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.

Recap of the CA Summer Camp

Tanner Carew, Casey Hales, Jason Bertoni and Wesley Bertoni made up the CA Staff!

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to CA on July 27th, 2017 for their Summer camp. Rubio Long Snapping traveled the country this summer instructing Long Snappers and getting them all ready for the season and beyond!

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

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.
Notables: Michel Heller, Jack Hughes, Jacob Mauch, Dante Mirogilo, Axel Raarup, Wyatt Rech, Mason Somerman, Tanner Williams

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.
