The Value of 1 on 1 Coaching

While practicing with the team is a great way to improve a player’s overall football abilities and helps create a solid base of teamwork, there are certain skills that are hard to master when working in a team situation. Some of the most notable examples of this are kicking and punting. In a normal practice situation, the Kicker does not get the opportunity to utilize these skills as often as is necessary to develop them to their fullest. Additionally, many great football coaches do not have the knowledge necessary to bring out the best in a Kicker or Punter. Because of this, finding 1 on 1 coaching for kicking and punting is essential—to help a player reach his potential.

A professional kicking instructor and kicking camps prove to be the best way to teach this important skill. The best in the business is Chris Sailer Kicking. In addition to providing the coaching necessary to develop the player and bring out the best, Chris Sailer Kicking is THE SOURCE for college recruiting and exposure as well—offering a wellounded package of benefits to up and coming Kickers and Punters of all skill levels.

Stay tuned for updates from our National Events this week in Las Vegas:

Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping Alums Square off in Denver this Weekend!

This weekend’s Divisional AFC Playoff game in Denver, CO featuring the Baltimore Ravens vs. the Denver Broncos includes two Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping alums. The featured alums are both rookies and stars in the making.

Justin Tucker Kicker for the Baltimore Ravens is having a phenomenal season and was just a few votes away from being selected for the Pro Bowl. Tucker has connected on 30 of 33 field goals this year and has been a reliable asset on special teams for the AFC North Champs Ravens.

Denver Broncos Long Snapper Aaron Brewer is another standout Rookie out of San Diego State. Brewer has started all 16 games this season and will look for his first playoff victory this weekend. Brewer beat out veteran Long Snapper Lonie Paxton in training camp and has never looked back.

Look for these two Rookies in the game’s most critical moments to see who comes out on top.

Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping are proud of the success of these two great football players on and off the field.

Good Luck guys!

3 Chris Sailer Kicking Alums to Play in this Weekend’s NFL Wild Card Playoff Round

 

This Weekends NFL Wildcard Playoff round has plenty of story lines. One to be noted is the rise of 3 Chris Sailer Kicking Alumni featured in this weekend’s games:

Kai Forbath Kicker for the Washington Redskins just wrapped up one of the finest seasons in the history of the NFL. Forbath set an NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career with 17 straight. Forbath and the Skins are playing the Seattle Seahawks this weekend and are looking to avenge their 2007 playoff elimination by the Seahawks.

Minnesota Vikings Rookie Kicker Blair Walsh was named to the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl Team. So far this season Walsh has:

  • Tied a team record for longest field goal — 56 yards (last Sunday in Houston).
  • Put his name in the NFL record books for most 50-plus field goals in a season — nine.
  • Made three 50-plus yard field goals (50, 53, 51) on Dec. 16 against St. Louis, tying an NFL record.
  • Logged the fourth most touchbacks in the league this season (49), which is the Vikings’ franchise record.

Walsh’s NFL record of nine field goals of 50-or more yards (hit on all 9) has put him in some elite company. He passed legendary kickers Morton Anderson, who is a Hall of Fame candidate, and Lions K Jason Hanson, who likely will be when he retires.

Look for Walsh this weekend in a re-match of last weeks game vs. the Green Bay Packers, in which Walsh hit the game winning field goal!

Wrapping up the 3 Chris Sailer Kicking Alums is the Baltimore Ravens Kicker Justin Tucker. Rookie Justin Tucker made 29 of 31 field goals with 48 touchbacks during the 2012 campaign.

Tucker is considered one of if not the top kickers in the AFC and to many was snubbed a Pro Bowl nod. Although, the honor went to 14 year NFL vet Phil Dawson, not bad company for a rookie kicker. Look for Tucker to be in consideration for many Pro Bowls in the future. Tucker and the Ravens will face the Indianapolis Colts this weekend!

Don’t miss these 3 star Kickers in their games this weekend! Three out of the four games this weekend will feature at least one Chris Sailer Kicking Alum!

Redskins Kicker Kai Forbath Sets NFL Record!

Chris Sailer Kicking Alum Kai Forbath continues his fantastic 2012 campaign by setting an NFL record for consecutive field goals to begin a career with 17 straight. The record was previously held by Garret Hartley of the New Orleans Saints. Forbath, kicked field goals of 45 and 42 in last Sundays win against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Forbath joined the Redskins after an ineffective Billy Cundiff was released. Forbath won the job on an off day tryout where he beat out veteran kickers Olindo Mare and Josh Brown.

The Chris Sailer Alum is continuing an already outstanding kicking career in which he has already won the Lou Groza Award for the nations top kicker while at UCLA.

Look for Forbath this Sunday as he and the Redskins battle for the division crown versus their longtime rivals the Dallas Cowboys and another former CSK alum Dan Bailey!

Bryan Anger – Mr. Power Leg in Football Kicking

Bryan Anger, a Chris Sailer kicking alum, wasn’t always known as America’s second best football punter in the nation and NFL. That said, he’s regularly made an impression in his football career, starting early on. In his college punting years, Anger made the All-Pac First Team three years straight.

In 2012 he was picked up as a third round draft pick and signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then, the rookie has posted 82 punts with an average 47.5 yard distance in 14 games. His overall yardage kicked totals almost 4,000 yards. It’s no surprise his teammates have nicknamed Bryan the moniker, “Banger,” for his powerful kicking leg and consistency.

Some critics are noting Anger needs development on directional kicking, harnessing the apparent power he has in a focused result. This development for now is expected to come with experience and game play, with Bryan having only played one full season so far.

Kai Forbath Hits Game Winner in OT to Beat Ravens!

Washington Redskins and Chris Sailer Kicking Alum Kai Forbath hit the game winning field goal in overtime Sunday to beat the AFC North Leading Baltimore Ravens. Forbath’s kick completed  a must win situation for the Redskins as they are battling for a playoff spot.

Since joining the Redskins the week leading up to their sixth game of the 2012 season, Forbath has made 14 straight field goals including a 48- and 49-yard field goals in the Ravens game. Forbath only needs two more successful makes to tie the NFL record for consecutive field goals made (16) to start a career.

A quote from Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan sums it up perfectly for the Chris Sailer Kicking Alum, “I’m glad he’s on our football team. That’s for sure, he’s made everything, and we gave him a game ball in front of the team. It doesn’t surprise me how he handles himself.”

2012 Herbalife 24 High School Football Awards

This past weekend was the Herbalife 24 Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio Awards for top high school Placekicker and Long Snapper. Three kickers and three long snappers were brought into L.A. Live for the awards show. The three finalists for the Chris Sailer Award for top Placekicker were Austin Rehkow (WA, ’13), Kevin Robledo (CA, ’15) and Wyatt Schmidt (MN, ’13). The three finalists for the Chris Rubio Award for top Long Snapper were Cole Mazza (CA, ’13), Gabriel Miller (IN, ’13) and Scott Sypniewski (IL, ’13).

Wyatt Schmidt & Cole MazzaThe weekend started off with the finalists that were flown into LAX being picked up in limos and driven to the JW Marriott. Once there, they, and a guest of their choice, relaxed in their rooms and waited for dinner at the ESPN Zone. The first night’s dinner was casual with everyone getting to know one another and to finally see the trophies they worked so hard to hopefully take home the next day.

Saturday started off with a breakfast at the Herbalife building with a presentation on nutrition and supplements. Following the breakfast, the finalists, along with Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio, were driven in a limo to Saddle Ranch restaurant on Sunset Blvd. Needless to say, they ate and ate and ate some more. At 6:00 pm, the Awards show officially started in the Herbalife building at L.A. Live. Everyone in attendance was formally dressed, looking sharp as the tension filled the air.

Master of Ceremonies Wayne Cook of Fox Sports West did a tremendous job as he brought up guest speakers and conducted interviews with the finalists on stage. After much adieu, the winner of the Chris Rubio Award for top high school Long Snapper in the country was presented to Cole Mazza and the winner of the top high school Placekicker in the country was presented to Wyatt Schmidt!
