Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping held the Prep Camp for the 8th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Spring Event – Sponsored by Nike this past weekend in Los Angeles, California. Top national talent was in attendance on a perfect Mother’s Day for kicking, punting and long snapping.
The prep camp included instruction, a classroom/film session, recruiting seminar and testing/evaluation. Kickers and Punters competed head to head and were also charted. The long snappers tested on The Rubio Target continuously throughout the day. As always, many players stepped up and some did not hold up under the pressure.
KICKER / PUNTER RESULTS:
The kickers and punters competed for camp championship honors. The 4 semi-finalists were Matt Goudis, Jed Barnett, Dalton Botts, and Eric DeLira. Matt Goudis came out on top once again. Matt continues to prove that he is a top 2011 prospect and sure fire D1A Scholarship Kicker!
2010 – Jed Barnett (CA) - Top K/P headed to CAL as a recruited walk on. Look for Jed to be a big contributor in CAL’s future.
2011 – Andre Heidari (CA) – A Chris Sailer Kicking “TOP 12” Member that continues to impress, a great kicker off the ground and tough mental competitor. Andre is a D1 Scholarship Kicker.
2011 – Colin Ditsworth (NV) – One of the best FG kickers in nation. Gets great height on his ball and makes kicks with great consistency. Proving he belongs among the best.
2011 – Matt Goudis (CA) – The best field goal kicker in the nation in his class. Also steps up better under pressure than anyone else. A “TOP 12” Member that should have multiple offers after Vegas.
2011 – Oleg Parent (CA) – Oleg is a solid all-around performer. He has all the tools!
2011 – Dalton Botts (CA) – Dalton is an exceptionally talented punter. He is big, tall, strong, and athletic. He will be on D1 radars very quickly after this performance and a strong weekend in Vegas.
2012 – Garrett Owens (CA) – Garrett is a great athlete and very talented natural kicker, one of the very best so far in the 2012 class.
LONG SNAPPING RESULTS:
The Target is used at all Rubio Long Snapping camps and is a terrific barometer in evaluating a person’s physical and mental ability when long snapping. Each long snapper had 12 punt snaps and 12 P.A.T.’s. The scores were tallied and the long snapper with top overall score (28 out of 48) was sophomore Grant Meersand (CA). Grant is a long time Rubio Long Snapping student and handles pressure as well as anyone in the country. Expect great things from Grant as he continues to mature and build muscle.
Notable Long Snappers:
2010 - Robbie Horrell (CA) proved why he is a “TOP 12” Member and one of the top long snappers in the country. Expect a college decision out of him shortly to add to the already impressive list of Rubio Long Snappers headed off this year once again.
2010 – Cary Kriegsman (CA) also proved why he is a “TOP 12” Member. Form is nearly flawless and his confidence is overflowing.
2010 – Brandon Koletsky (CA) yet another “TOP 12” Member on the cusp of making a decision for next year. Extremely athletic long snapper that is very smooth.
2011 – Scott Thompson (CA) is a current “TOP 12” Member that is very close to greatness. Extremely smooth and fast. Confidence is brimming and he is looking exceptional heading into the 8th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Spring Event – Sponsored by Nike.
2011 – Tanner Gibas (CA) came out for a quick tune-up prior to Vegas and made a huge name for himself. Tremendous snapping body and might have the fastest snap in the country. Ball is getting very close to dipping into the unheard of sub .6 region! Vegas should be huge for him.
The camp ended up doing exactly what it was meant to, prepare all participants for this coming weekend in Las Vegas. There was a huge question and answer segment to clear up any concerns regarding the 8th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Spring Event – Sponsored by Nike. All kickers, punters and long snappers were tested and evaluated in the same format they will see in Vegas. The 8th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Spring Event (May 15-16, 2010) once again will bring in the top kickers, punters and long snappers representing over 40 states.
