The champion of the camp was Drew Little! Drew was simply tremendous with smooth and powerful snaps non-stop from start to finish.

Cade Long looked exceptional in GA. He is thickening up well and snaps one of the smoothest balls in the country. It is a joy to watch him snap a 15 yard snap as each one is exactly the same. Smart Long Snapper.

Cade Long

Evan Dvorchik came up from FL and left no doubt he is one of the top Long Snappers in his class. His ball has picked up some good speed and he is always improving. Love his attitude and the more athletic Evan becomes, the more dominant he will be.

Evan Dvorchik

Payton Dunagan looked very sharp with punt snap times consistently in the .7s. Flexibility is off the charts and he continues to improve. Best I have seen Payton look!

Quentin “Mad Dog” Skinner was an absolute machine in GA. He is thick, powerful and very strong. Zero wasted movement with his snapping motion. Easily can get punt snaps well under .75. Mad Dog is the best Long Snapper in the country and with his consistency, I don’t see that changing soon.

Drew Little was exceptional in GA. I have seen him many times and this was easily the most dominant I have seen Drew. Body is solid and he has a fluid snapping motion that allows the ball to just appear in the punter’s hands. Drew is never stagnant and always improving. NC State got a good one.

Drew Little

JC Vega was snapping absolute fire all day long and was the overall speed champion with times in the low .6s! The ball was actually picking up speed along the way and was so fast, you could hear it humming. Body is muscular and the kid is a pure athlete.

Luke Payne continues to be one of the most accurate and consistent Long Snappers in his class. Every single snap for Payne is the exact same. Kid is like a machine. Strength is going to be huge for Payne as we continue to advance.
Nathan Tokar was smooth and accurate with good form and a thick, strong body. Driving his massive chest through will help his overall accuracy and speed.
Mark Fuchs is athletic, built well and has quick hands. Getting his legs to catch up to his hands will be key in getting his snaps ready for college level speeds. Great attitude and he works hard.

Jacob Zuhr was a machine all day in GA.

It is almost shocking to see just how good he is. Zuhr is flat out great and doesn’t seem to be letting up.

Miller Jones was smooth, accurate and can be one of the best Long Snappers in his class.
Will Albright has all of the tools to be a great one. True athlete that moves well on his feet and can pass an eyeball test quickly.

Recap of the GA Fall Camp (12/18)

Rubio Long Snapping traveled to Texas on December 18th, 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 MS, AL, VA, GA, LA, SC, TN, FL, NC, IL, MI, IN, OH, MO, SC, KY & Canada all traveled to get the best instruction and the most exposure possible for Long Snapping.
The overall camp champion was Jacob Potter. Potter was excellent all day. His hands were like rockets as his ball jumped out of the gate on all snaps. Accuracy was off the charts and he was very calm and collected when he was snapping throughout the finals. He was definitely snapping with a ton of confidence and I loved watching him all day. His victory in GA earned him a free admission to VEGAS XXIX!

You can see the finals between Jacob Potter and Brock Assel below.

The next stop for Rubio Long Snapping will be Prep Camps in CA, TX & GA on January 8th followed by the granddaddy of them all, VEGAS XXIX on January 13-15!

Top 2017 Long Snappers
Jacob Potter was the top 2017 Long Snapper in attendance. He was smooth, powerful and snapping with confidence. Ball moves quickly and jumps out of the gate on a mission. Body is strong and he has no problem getting the ball under .75. Impressive improvement on Potter.

Chandler Moody really caught my eye several times in GA. Ball is quick and he can hit under .7 when he catches a groove. I like his attitude and he has a frame that can pack on about another 40. Moody could be the sleeper of the 2017 class. Keep a close eye on him.

Dillon Manning showed great improvement and is one of the stronger Long Snappers in his class. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and can move well on his feet. Quiet and determined Long Snapper that has some VERY quick hands.

Top 2018 Long Snappers
Oscar Shadley was the best overall Long Snapper in this class. He is an incredible athlete and snaps one of the most consistent hard balls I have felt in some time. He is CONSISTENTLY at .68 and on target. The harder he snaps the ball, the better he does. The potential on Shadley is off the charts and he could be a tremendous Long Snapper in college.

Roen McCullough had a solid day in GA. He can pass an eyeball test quickly and snaps a smooth, powerful ball. He has no problem hitting sub .70 and has good accuracy. Moves well on his feet and snaps with a good attitude. Massive upside.

Cade Long looked great in GA. Ball is so clean and crisp every single time to the punter. Cade makes everything look effortless as he continuously snaps the ball back to the punter. The bigger he gets, the more dominant he becomes in his class.

AJ Covan continues to impress me with his accuracy and consistency with his snaps. Notable improvement on his athleticism and speed. Covan is focused and dialed in for VEGAS XXIX and could EASILY win it.

Evan Dvorchik was beyond solid in GA. I saw him recently in WA and he was night and day better this time around. He is snapping with a ton of confidence as his ball hits under .77 consistently. Body is good and I love his attitude.

Jarrett Key was smooth and accurate. Quiet Long Snapper that is always in the mix of dominance. The more he snaps with confidence, the better he does in the long run. VERY good attitude that a coach will love in the coming years.

Brock Assel made it all the way to the finals and could have easily won the whole thing. His accuracy and consistency are off the charts. Large man with decent athleticism for his frame. Great attitude and definitely improving. Should do really well at VEGAS XXIX.

Top 2019 Long Snappers
Quentin Skinner is a physically monstrous Long Snapper that is completely dominant and still hasn’t filled all of his potential yet. When it all clicks, Skinner could be one of the greatest Rubio Long Snappers of all time. His hands are quick and his ball is powerful. Strength is off the charts.

Drew Little had a great day in GA. Great form and he is using all of his body well. He had some great snap times throughout the day and left no doubt he has really been working hard and smart. Great upside on Drew.

William Wagner came on strong at the end of the day in GA and left a very good taste in my mouth. Body is thick and he uses a good amount of his body. Keep an eye on him.

Chad Becker looked great in GA. His snaps get out of the gate very quickly and he has no problem getting the ball under .7. Upside on Becker is huge. Watch him closely at VEGAS XXIX.

Mason Napper has a good frame and a smooth snap. Very good potential and I like his attitude. He has the ability to be the real deal in just a couple months. Napper might be the sleeper of his class.

Top 2020 Long Snappers and beyond….
Zane McCracken was by far the best 2020 Long Snapper in attendance and it wasn’t even close. Form is exceptional as he has been with Rubio Long Snapper for about five years! He can already snap in the .6s which is exceptional for his age. Zane is well above his age for talent level.

Jackson Worthen has great form and a solid attitude. Ball is quick and his overall use of his body is very solid for his age.
