Chris Rubio Sept. 2008 Longsnapper Rankings

J.R. Carr

Chris Rubio, the longsnapper coach for Chris Sailer Kicking, has compiled his September 2008 longsnapper rankings, and two Southland natives continue to remain atop the list...

1. Evan Jacobsen, San Clemente HS, CA.  6'1" 240lbs
Evan is by far the best long snapper in the country. He has it all. He fires the ball back there well below .75 every single time, he can block like a champ, he is athletic and his gpa is a 4.0. This kid is a no-brainer scholarship long snapper.

2. J.R. Carr, South HS, CA. 5'10" 210lbs
J.R. is a very physically strong long snapper. Built like a body builder and it shows his snaps. The only real difference between he and Evan is the height and grades.

3. Chris Roberson, Katy HS, TX 6'1 1/2" 215lbs
Chris is a lefty that is has terrific velocity and a nice, smooth ball. Good consistency and blocks well. Athletic kid.

4. Justin Carnes, La Porte HS, TX 6'3" 240lbs
Justin is a long snapper with a nice thick body. Speed is very good and the ball comes back hard. Can block well. His ball really pops when it hits you.

5. Salanoa Galeai, Euless Trinity HS, TX, 6'1 1/2" 210lbs.
Salanoa is an extremely long snapper that has a ton of room to put some weight on when he gets to the next level. Another lefty that ball picks up speed a long the way. Very athletic.

6. Tyler Bills, Mission Viejo HS, CA, 6' 210lbs
Tyler might just be the most consistent snapper in the group. This kid's snaps are very smooth, easy to catch and right on target. Good speed and blocks well. His grades are off the charts. Not even close to an issue getting this kid in to your school.

7. Philip Doumar, Jupiter HS, FL, 6'2" 225lbs
Philip is very similar to Tyler Bills. Very, very consistent and smooth. Ball is a tad slower, but he does make up for it with his size. Blocks well. Good personality. Does very, very well under pressure.

8. Michael Brodsky, Milton HS, GA, 6'2" 220lbs
Michael has already committed to Tulsa on a full ride. He is very flexible and accurate. Good speed and very athletic.

9. Jake Lembke, Providence Catholic HS, IL 6'1 1/2" 240lbs.
Jake is a very muscular snapper that is difficult to move. Good speed and consistency. His biggest issue is realizing just how strong he really is. Blocks like a champ. Very quiet kid.

10. Joey Waters, San Clemente HS, CA. 5'10" 210lbs.
The biggest downfall for Joey is that he goes to the same school as the #1 snapper. This kid can snap the ball. His ball is very, very fast and he is very aggressive. Blocks well and is an absolute terror on the field. He is one of those players that thinks they are bigger than they actually are.

11. Jordan Cowart, St.Thomas Aquinas HS, FL, 6'2" 220lbs
Jordan is a good long snapper with solid speed and consistency. Does very well under pressure. Good pick up. Blocks well. Has all the tools.

12. Kevin Hampton, Glendale JC, AZ, 6' 260lbs
Kevin is a very aggressive long snapper. Snaps the ball very hard and is a good blocker. Has a tiny hitch but has quick enough hands where it shouldn't matter.

13. Doug Steele, Corona del Oro HS, AZ, 6'4" 230lbs
There are two long snappers on this page that have the most potential out of them all, and Doug is easily one. If he continues to work on his craft, he will be dominant and I mean dominant.  Terrific body and learns quickly. When he is on, his ball flies. Tremendous athlete. Keep a very close eye on this kid.

14. Anthony Ferraro, Servite HS, CA, 6'3" 220lbs
And Anthony is the other long snapper with all of the potential. He is almost identical to Doug, but just take away an inch. Terrific all around body. Perfect frame for a long snapper. Tons of talent and potential. Great athlete.

15. Kevin Rowe, Olympia HS, WA, 6'2" 245lbs
Very smooth and consistent long snapper. Decent body. Good kid and pick.

16. Ryan Mintz, JP Taravella HS, FL, 6'1" 215lbs
Ryan is a very intense long snapper that really has the desire to get better. Listens very well and is also a great athlete. Good speed and consistency. Does well under pressure. Recommended Stories
