Andrew David Commits to Michigan! First in Class of 2015….

Long time Chris Sailer Kicking student Andrew David picked up an offer from Michigan earlier today, and by this evening he was committed!  Perhaps the greatest part of the news…he is only in the Class of 2015.  David became the first kicker in the class of 2015 to commit on full scholarship.

David works privately with Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Member Chris Nendick on a consistent basis in the Midwest.  He has been attending Chris Sailer Kicking camps since his freshman year.  Over that time he has elevated his game to a whole new level.  He already kicks effortlessly off the ground and his kickoffs are outstanding.  He has a great mental make up and works as hard as anyone out there.

We are very proud to announce the commitment of this very talented young man.   He will go on to do special things as he finishes his high school career and continues his kicking at the next level.  Stay tuned for many updates on Andrew as he continues to train with Chris Nendick and attend Chris Sailer Kicking camps around the world.

2013 Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping Pre-Season All-Americans

Starting this year, Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping will be choosing High School & College All-American Teams!

We will be choosing 4 High School and 4 College All-Americans. We will also be choosing a Most Improved Kicker, Punter and Long Snapper for the year as well.

One of the best parts about these awards, besides the honor itself, is that they will be announced on the Friday, January 17th in Las Vegas. Yup, that is the day before the world’s largest Kicking, Punting and Long Snapping event and everyone will be on hand for the ceremony.

Also, in Vegas on that same night, Herbalife 24 will be announcing the Herbalife 24 Chris Sailer Award and Chris Rubio Award for top High School Kicker and Long Snapper of the Year!

Therefore, instead of just a handful of lucky families being able to see the Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio Award presentations, there will now be hundreds. The awards ceremony will take place in a ball room at the JW Marriott with several tables being reserved for the finalists and their families while the rest of the ballroom will be open seating and free to the public. Imagine the NFL draft in your head….that is what this will look like in Vegas.

With no further adieu, here are the Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping Snapping Pre-Season All-Americans….

2013 All-Americans


7 Reasons Why Chris Sailer Kicking

1. Chris Sailer Kicking means Chris Sailer.  There is a reason why college coaches trust Chris Sailer.  He is the only one who evaluates kickers and punters at his camps.  Since 1999 it has been the same.  Rubio….ditto!

6. Hired by Major BCS Universities year in and out.  National Champions hire Chris Sailer Kicking.  National Champions sign #1 ranked Chris Sailer Kicking prospects.  Rubio….ditto!

Started it all, continues it all, will finish it all……


CSK Kicker Cole Hedlund Commits to Arkansas!

Chris Sailer Kicking Top 10 National Ranked Kicker Cole Hedlund has committed to the Arkansas Razorbacks.  Cole set the All-Time Record for most field goals in a high school season with 25 a season ago (breaking Chris Sailer’s record of 22).  He is one of the purest field goal kickers in the nation and a big time competitor.  Kickoffs are also amongst the very best.

“I expect Cole to take his success at the high school level and carry that right onto the field with for Arkansas and not miss a beat.  He is incredibly smooth and consistency.  A clutch performer who is beyond ready for the next level.  Huge pick up for Arkansas” – Chris Sailer

Chris Sailer Kicking has also trained Cole’s brother Chad for some years who is set to be the starting placekicker for Wake Forest this upcoming season.  Should be some great years ahead for the Hedlund family.


Chris Sailer Kicking “TOP 12″ P Corbin Daly Commits to Texas!

Longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and “TOP 12″ Member Punter Corbin Daly has committed to Texas.  He chose Texas over many other schools. The big and strong Daly will be a huge added value to the Longhorns.

Daly is a big time talent.  He has attended multiple Chris Sailer Kicking camps and has impressed since day 1.



Some of those highlights include:

  • Member of the “TOP 12”
  • NC Nike Fall Camp Champion

Overall, he is one of the very best prospects in the nation without a doubt.  I expect him to have a huge college career.  Well deserved!




Chris Sailer Kicking “TOP 12” K/P Logan Cooke Commits to Mississippi State!

Longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and “TOP 12” Member Punter/Kicker Logan Cooke has committed to Mississippi State.  He chose Mississippi state over an offer from Louisiana Monroe.  The highlight recruited Combo Player has always had Mississippi State listed as his dream school, so when they offered he had no hesitation when it came to committing.

Logan is a big time talent.  He has attended multiple Chris Sailer Kicking camps and has impressed since day 1.  Each time he progresses at lighting rate.  Although I see him as a Punter / Kickoff guy, he also has huge field goal ability.  Overall, he is one of the very best prospects in the nation without a doubt.  I expect him to have a huge college career.  Well deserved!



Chris Sailer Kicking “TOP 12” Member Mike Knoll has committed to Boston College!

Chris Sailer Kicking 2-Time “TOP 12” Member Mike Knoll has committed to Boston College.  He has chosen Boston College over offers from Purdue, Miami (OH), Toledo, and Air Force.  Boston College has always been a top choice of his and during his visit, he felt like it was just the place for him to be!
Mike has been a Chris Sailer Kicking student for many years.  He is a Top 10 nationally rated kicker and Top 10 nationally rated punter, making him one of the most sought after combo prospects in the nation.  He trains privately with Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Member Chris Nendick in Chicago.  He made “Event Elite” as a sophomore last May in Las Vegas and followed that up by making the “TOP 12” as a junior this past January in Las Vegas.  Mike has all the tools to be a dominating player at the next level.

Mike is a loyal Chris Sailer Kicking student who will soon be a CSK Staff Member.  Look for Mike to continue to work hard this summer (he will next attend the “TOP 12′” later this month) and enjoy a great senior season.  Congratulations to Mike and his family from Chris Sailer Kicking.
