Player ReviewBaldeck was extremely solid at VEGAS XXIX on January 14-15, 2017. VERY strong Long Snapper that is built well and is thick. Stout Long Snapper that will be able to withstand a college rush. Intelligent athlete that listens well and is always improving. Snaps a rocket back to the punter as he uses his whole body really well. The more consistent he gets, the better he becomes and the more he moves up the rankings. Solid upside on this powerful Long Snapper from the Northwest.
Baldeck did really well at the Rubio Long Snapping fall camp in WA on October 23, 2016. He is easily one of the most powerful Long Snappers in the country. His snaps almost punish the punter when they get to him. Not uncommon for him to be in the low .7s to high .6s. Form is very good and he is using his whole body really well. Body is thick and his frame is solid. Baldeck is always improving and his athleticism is moving forward. Plays on the top team in Idaho so he is used to handling pressure. Going to be a solid pick up for a college in the next couple of months.
Baldeck showed me some good at the TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp at the IMG Academy in FL. He is a very strong Long Snapper who, when he is on, can have one of the most powerful snaps in the country. Ball can crush the punter when he gets his eyes and hands all the way through. Getting set and making sure to end the whole process correctly will make him an easy D1 Long Snapper. Has all of the tools and the last one, confidence in his snapping ability, will be the last key to making it all come to fruition. Potential is off the charts.

VEGAS XXIX 40 Time: 5.43
VEGAS XXIX RSI (Rubio Standard Index) from the Rubio Target: 32.43
All Long Snappers were tested on The Rubio Target. Each Long Snapper was tested on 12 punt snaps where they had three normal snaps, three blocking left, three blocking right, three speed punt snaps (running in from the side and have three seconds to get the ball off once their feet are set) and 12 pat snaps where they had three normal snaps, three blocking left, three blocking right, three speed punt snaps (running in from the side and have three seconds to get the ball off once their feet are set). Once the Long Snapper has completed the test, they earn an RSI which is the fairest and most accurate way to judge a Long Snapper by numbers. Please note: the RSI does not account for athleticism, spiral or mentality.
RSI (Rubio Standard Index): The RSI is the score divided by the average speed on The Rubio Target. You may obtain 2 bonus points for an average of .75-.79, 2 more bonus points for an average of .70-.74 and an additional 2 more bonus points if you average below .70.
