    Ricahrds was solid at the Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp in GA on December 15th, 2019. He continues to be impressive with his overall attitude and the consistency of his snapping. I absolutely love when he really just lets the ball fly out of his hands. Snapping with confidence is the key to Richards dominance at the next level. There is no doubt that Richards can do this at the next level. Excellent Long Snapper and person. Watch him at VEGAS XXXV in January. 

    Brandon Richards had a great day at the Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp in GA on November 24th, 2019. Extremely smooth Long Snapper that has great consistency. Each and very snap is the same. Very fluid snapping motion. Richards is snapping with a good pop and I am a big fan of how well he is using his whole body. Leaning back well and solid accuracy. Love to see Richards realize how great he truly is and snap with full confidence. If he can snap at full force, each and every time, Richards will have no problem hitting in the low .7s at VEGAS XXXV in January. Tremendous attitude.

    Brandon had another great display in New Jersey on October 13, 2019 at the Rubio Long Snapping Fall Regional Camp. Whenever this camp is held, it is known that Brandon will be one of the top performers. He has great form, accuracy and pop on his ball. Would like to see him tighten up the spiral a bit more. I think the biggest thing for him in the coming year is getting a chance to compete with the best of the best in his class and show his abilities on the big stage. Vegas XXXV is a great opportunity for this to happen, and know he will dominate!

    Richards came over from VA and did well at the Rubio Long Snapping Fall Camp in NC on October 6th, 2019. First off, I could easily tell that Richards has put on some good size. He has definitely done a good job of thickening up and getting himself physically ready for the next level. He hovers in the mid to low .8s and is really consistent with his snapping motion. Richards has come along way and he is definitely improving. Excited to see how well he is using his whole body and I look forward to seeing him dominate at VEGAS XXXV in January.

    Richards did really well during the Rubio Long Snapping 2019 Summer Tour. He has a tremendous attitude and is always improving. Starting form is excellent and his snapping motion is smooth and efficient. His eyes get through really well and his balance is great. Snaps well under pressure and hovers in the low .8s on a pretty consistent basis. The harder he snaps and the more confidence he snaps with, the better Richards will do. He is going to make his college coach really happy with his great attitude and coachability.

    Brandon was the overall champion of the NJ Summer Regional camp in NJ on July 21, 2019 with a strong finish to the day. He improved and got stronger throughout the day and peaked in time for the final competition. Amazing attitude and confidence in his abilities, would like to see him develop the consistency from start to finish with the product he put out there for the finals round. When he is on, he can snap with some of the best in his class. Snapping hard and trusting his form will be huge for his snap time, and he has shown he has the ability to do that at times. Looking forward to seeing him at another even in the near future! 

    Richards came over from Virginia and was really solid at the Rubio Long Snapping Spring Camp in GA on April 28, 2019. Smooth Long Snapper with good form that is able to use his whole body pretty darn well. Really good accuracy and consistency. The harder he snaps the ball, the better Richards done. Driving his elbows and throwing his head through with force will be huge. Love his attitude. Continuing to gain size and strength.

    Ricahrds had a tremendous day at the Rubio Long Snapping regional camp in NJ on March 24, 2019. A very smooth and consistent Long Snapper with tons of upside and great athleticism. Would like to see him keep his weight back and not fall forward on some of his snaps, as well as trusting his form and snapping as hard as he can. His accuracy is already there, just needs to add a little bit of speed to take everything to the next level. Excited to see his continued growth and development at the next Rubio Long Snapping event!

    Richards came out from VA and did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping NC Spring Camp on March 10th, 2019. Really smooth Long Snapper with a ball that is easy to catch. He is able to use his body well and his legs are popping well. Richards has some really quick hands. Ball jumps out of the gate like a champ. Trusting his good form will be huge for Richards at VEGAS XXXIV in May. Easily can be in the low .7s if he snaps with full power and allows his legs to drive back even more with excessive force. Good attitude and always improving.

    Richards did well at the Rubio Long Snapping VEGAS XXXIII Event on January 19-20, 2019. Very smooth Long Snapper that reaches through extremely well. Love how well he dives his upper body to the punter. Doing this can create incredible accuracy. Eyes are solid. Balance is good. Love to see Richards focus on slow motion drills to get his lower half fully involved to gain more speed. Great attitude and always learning. Very coachable.
