Spring Football: Charter Oak’s Tanner Gibas one of the best long snappers in the country

By Aram Tolegian
Charter Oak long snapper Tanner Gibas won the National Kicking and Snapping Spring Event put on by Chris Sailer Kicking/Rubio Long Snapping in Las Vegas last weekend. Gibas, who is also expected to start at linebacker for the Chargers, beat out 79 other long snappers from 40 states to take home the prize. His time, from first movement to ball arriving at the punter, was .68 seconds. (To continue, click thread).

“It’s an absolute rocket,” event co-organizer Chris Rubio said. “Put it this way, you would like to have anything under .77 and a pro snap is usually .75. He just has to control it. If he continues to work, there’s no reason he won’t advance.”

The news of Gibas’ win was especially pleasing for Chargers coach Lou Farrar, who has always taken pride in the Chargers’ special teams.

“I’ve always been concerned about special teams,” Farrar said.

“Some coaches give lip service about special teams, but they don’t really do anything about it. For me, it’s always a big thing. It’s the first thing we do at practice.”

Former Damien standout Hile now an assistant at Workman

Anthony Hile, a Tribune All-Area linebacker in 2006 while at Damien, has joined Scott Morrison’s staff at Workman as a linebackers coach.

Hile was also first-team All-CIF and Defensive MVP of the Sierra League in ’06. He played under Morrison during his varsity career.

  • AMAT 73

    Great to hear this kind of news . Now this young man does have a future in the NFL if it his choosing . There are many who have had a long career ( no pun intended ) by being a specialist as a long snapper. Great job and keep up the good work .

  • Long Snappers Union

    Damien’s Michael Buell earned a scholarship to Dayton as a long snapper this year and last year Brandon Madueno spent a red shirt year at Cal as a long snapper as well. Damien is a long snapper machine! Who knew?

  • Big brother

    His older brother was the long snapper for Texas A&M. Looks like it runs in the family.

    AMAT 73,

    You must mean ‘this young man MAY have a future in the NFL if it his choosing.’

    Each NFL team has 1 LS, so there are ONLY 32 of these jobs. Back-up LS are generally other position players who can LS.

    Competition for these spots has to be the toughest in sports. LS in college and getting a scholarship for it is great, but does not mean the NFL is the next step for every LS.

    Okay, so I don’t know much about long snaps.
    Can anyone tell me how many yards the ball travels on a long snap?

  • TC Bruin

    LS for pats/fg’s is 7 yards.
    LS for punts CAN vary, but are generally from 12-15 yards.

  • Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

  • I personally feel that it turns people away if you force them to make a Blog Account cause they will be wary of their email address being sent out and the fire in the article effect will be worn out since a lot of the people have busy lives and dont want to bother if they dont blog much, so thanks for leaving it open to the public for posting comments, your blog is great!

  • Marion Moore

    This team (Charter Oak Chargers)is a bunch of no class unsuccessful cheap shotting punks. It shameful that the parents raise kids like this, and even worse that the ego driven bad men that coach these kids not only let them act the way they do, but act the same as them.
