National Long Snapper Appreciation Day / Chris Sailer Kicking Contest

Chris Sailer Kicking introduces National Long Snapper Appreciation Day. Long Snappers are often the most under appreciated football players on the field. The saying goes, “You never know the long snappers name, unless they mess up” and “If you are a long snapper, it is your hope that the announcer never mentions your name. That just means you are doing your job well.”

I can tell you from first hand experience that a long snapper directly effects the success of kicker. In 1997, I earned All-American honors as both a kicker and punter while at UCLA. I never saw a bad snap and in fact never saw the laces of the football that year. My long snapper, yep you called it, was Chris Rubio. Our operation was flawless all year and making kicks became easy with that immense confidence that my long snapper would be perfect for me every time. Rubio never did get his All-American plaque that year. He also didn’t get to travel with me to Orlando, FL to be a part of the Home Depot ESPN Awards Show.

So…. after all these years, I have decided that it is time to thank my long snapper with the National Long Snapper Appreciation Day. I am inviting the Chris Sailer Kicking family to join me to celebrate our unsung heroes on November 1st starting in 2017 and continuing on each year from here on out.

Chris Sailer Kicking Contest – Due November 1st by midnight (Winner TBA November 2nd)

Post a picture, video, story, a combination of all of the above, etc. to your social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) showing your appreciation for your long snapper. Be creative and capture the meaning of long snapper appreciation. Tag Chris Sailer in your post. Also text (818-209-8921) or email (Chris@ChrisSailerKicking.com) your entry to Chris Sailer. The winner will receive FREE admission to Vegas XXXI January 13-14, 2018. If you are already registered for Vegas, you will receive FREE admission to any Chris Sailer Kicking camp of your choice in the future (Excluding TOP 12 Camp & Underclassmen Invitational).

The time has come. I believe this might actually quiet Rubio and his comments about kickers/punters down a bit. Or maybe not. Regardless, I cannot wait to see your entries. Good luck!

Chris Sailer Kicking Year Round Package

Chris Sailer Kicking has always been about the athletes above everything else, the unmistakable #1 priority.  Our mission is to deliver the very best technical training to fuel growth and development as a Kicker/Punter, and secondly to provide and the best possible exposure to NCAA and NFL Football Coaches and Staffs.

It is a rather simple formula.  We provide the framework for athletes to grow their kicking/punting skill through drills and exercises that translate into technique, accuracy, and speed over time.  The more frequently we have the opportunity to work with athletes at Regional and National Camps, the faster we see the development typically.  However, merely attending camps alone will not work. It is the dedication to hard work in between camps that will pay the greatest dividend.  As the athlete grows and develops, Chris Sailer Kicking creates awareness and exposure to NCAA and NFL  Coaches through our personal relationships, our website, and via Social Media better than any other Kicking/Punting instructor.  Camp attendance is the basis for us being able to document growth and development through video, competition results, and rank athletes within each class.  Rankings are based solely on how the athletes at every camp perform and compete with their peers, those who attend more frequently give themselves the most chances succeed and thereby climb the rankings.

That being said, Chris Sailer Kicking fully understands the enormous commitment that it takes to get your athlete to Regional and National Camps.  It is a huge commitment and investment of time and money.  And while Chris Sailer Kicking is in fact a business, it has always been about the athletes first and foremost.  So in an attempt to help provide athletes and their families with the greatest possible access to Regional and National Events we would like to announce the 2017 / 2018 Chris Sailer Kicking All Access Program.

Starting with our 2017 Fall Camp Schedule, our Chris Sailer Kicking Families will be able to pay one flat cost per year for their athletes to attend all of the Regional and National Camps they would like for one fee.  This new program will cover Fall, Spring, and Summer Camps (in any city / state) and both the January and May Las Vegas Events.  The Chris Sailer Kicking All Access Program will start with the Fall 2017 Camps and run through the Summer 2018 Camps.  The only camps this program will not include are The Top 12 Camp and the Underclassmen Invitational, those camps will be separate costs to attend.  This program is a direct result of feedback from our Chris Sailer Kicking Families, and we are thrilled to offer it.  We hope it is an accurate reflection of how we feel about having most opportunities to develop Kickers/Punters in the coming year.

Overall Camp Champion:
Jaime Medina (JC, CA) – Jaime is longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and recent bounce back from Sacramento State. He is an experienced combo player that performs with great confidence. On this day he won 2 of the 4 major competitions, coming in first for both field goal and punt. Jaime has 55+ yard range on field goal and gets tremendous height on his ball. He hits a D1 kickoff with ease. And his punting is equally as strong. He won the final competition with a 50 yard, 5.30 second punt. Jaime should be the top junior college specialist is America this coming season.

He won the competition by going 7-7 with a long of 55 yards off the ground. Jason is proving that he has the tools to take his game to the college level. Look for him to do very well this coming season.

Andrew Rodriguez (JC, CA) – Andrew proved once again that he is one of the best in the nation. He competed very well on both field goal and kickoff. He then stepped up and won a major punt competition by punting with great consistency and showing that he can hit a big time D1 ball. He averaged over 45 yards per punt with 4.5+ hang time.

2017 Underclassmen Invitational – The Future is Here!


The 2017 Underclassmen Invitational took place in Tampa, FL on July 20-21, 2017. Two hundred plus of the nation’s top Class of 2019, 2020 & 2021 specialists made their way to Florida for one of the most popular camps of the year. This camp has quickly become my second favorite camp of the year, just behind the TOP 12 Camp.

The two day camp is about much more than just kicking and punting. This camp is as much about the parents and families as it is about the athletes. The two days are filled with kicking, punting, educational meetings, game shows, meals and gatherings. The three major goals of camp are improvement on the field, improvement off the field and becoming one family… #TeamSailer #SailerFamily. This camp sets up athletes and their families for a bright future in the world of kicking and punting.

The Underclassmen Invitational featured 200+ specialists from nearly every state in the U.S. ranging from Hawaii to New York. The camp also hosted a few players from outside of the U.S from as far away as Australia. Nearly 400 parents also attended and majority of participants brought the entire family along. Take a look at a day by day breakdown.

Day 1

Field Session: Four hours of total field time (2 Groups) where athletes are separated by position and graduation year. Each athlete was put into a group of 10 or less with 2 of Chris Sailer Kicking’s best instructors including Aaron Perez, Erik Folk, Tristan Vizcaino, Andrew Gantz, Blanton Creque, Cole Murphy and many more. Drills, field goals, kickoffs, punting and evaluation was the focus.


College & Pro Demo: Nick Folk of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a special appearance to perform for the future of the sport. In the sprit of the Underclassmen Invitational he also brought along his 3-year old twin boys (they even attempted a few field goals). Folk, Vizcaino, Gantz, Creque, Murphy, Gonsoulin and more put on a show for the 500+ spectators.


Competition: At the end of each group session the athletes participated in a field goal last man standing competition. This is a famous Chris Sailer Kicking Competition that has challenged the best of the best for 17+ years of camps.

Class of 2019 Champion
Ryan Sanborn (CA) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking kicker/punter was stellar at all skills over the course of the two days. He won the field goal competition by connecting on 7-7 field goals with a long of 55 yards. Ryan continues to prove that he is a top national kicking and punting prospect. Ryan has a bright future with continued hard work.

Class of 2020 Champion
Tabor Allen (TX) – Tabor has been one of the most clutch performers in his class over the past few years. He is always at his best once it is time to compete. A great athlete that already kicks field goals off the ground. He went 6-6 on field goals with a long of 55 yards to win it. Even more impressive, he did it in rainy conditions toward the end of camp.

Class of 2021 Champion
David Kemp (KS) – David was clearly the standout performer in his class in Tampa. He is a fine young athlete with a big time leg. He kicks with nice technique and consistency. He also went 6-6 on on field goals with a long off 55 yards to win it. Look for David to be near the very top of the rankings with the Class of 2021 rankings are released this coming Fall.

Educational Meetings: Athletes and parents headed back to the hotel for two hours of educational meetings. Topics ranged from nutrition to training to social media to recruiting.

Game Show: The Kickers/Punters vs. Long Snappers Game Show has become one of the most popular Underclassmen Invitational traditions. This year, we decided to include the parents as well. After taking the crown in 2016, the Kickers/Punters were looking to go back-to-back. Unfortunately the Long Snappers came out on top. If you ask me, the questions were rigged ;). No worries, we will come back strong in 2018.

Family Dinner: Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping hosted a massive dinner in the hotel ballroom where all were invited. Salads, Pastas, Meatballs, Breads and an assortment of drinks were served. The atmosphere was full of smiles and laughter and the conversations were about much more than just football. It is safe to say that the dinner was a huge hit.

Day 2

Field Session: This was Competition Day. Athletes checked-in in groups of four and were charted individually through a circuit of field goals, kickoffs and punts. Results will be posted in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

Competition: At the end of the charting session it was time for punters to compete in a head to head competition. Twenty three athletes qualified based on two days of evaluation. The intense competition put the punters head to head in a single elimination format.

Class of 2019 Champion
Austin McNamara (AZ) – The 6’4” punter stepped up when it counted the most. He punted several balls 40-50 yards with 4.3-4.7 hang time. In the end, he was able to edge out top prospects such as Ryan Sanborn and Ben Freehill with consistency. Austin has the tools to be a great college punter.

Class of 2020 Champion
Daniel Cristiani (IN) – Daniel did a great job over the course of the two days. This was his third camp with Chris Sailer Kicking and his hard work is paying off. Daniel is a talented athlete that has a bright future with continued hard work.

Q & A With Sailer & Rubio: Athletes and parents headed back to the hotel for a Question & Answer session. Questions were answered, pictures were taken and final goodbyes were said.

2017 Chris Sailer Kicking TOP 12 Camp Recap, Best in the U.S. Compete!

The best of the best high school and junior college specialists in nation gathered in Tampa, FL to compete at the prestigious TOP 12 Camp. In order to be invited to attend this camp you had to dominate at either Vegas XXIX (January 2017) or Vegas 30 (May 2017). Twenty Kickers/Punters were selected in January and an additional twenty were selected in May. The two Vegas Events brought in well over 1000 specialists, so achieving this honor was a tall task. Five wild cards were added rounding out the field of the 45 best in America!

The format for the 2017 TOP 12 was brand new. After fourteen years of the TOP 12 and Event Elite format, this year the standard was set even higher. For the first time ever, 45 specialists would have to compete in July to earn the honor of TOP 12. And… the camp would be captured by film and crew for the first ever TOP 12 Web Series. The pressure was on as the stakes were set higher then hey had every been. Every athlete would be followed by cameras. Interviews, on field performance, competitions, off the field character and thorough evaluation would ultimately determine who would be selected to the first every true TOP 12!

Each athlete earned a BLACK TOP 12 Camp shirt by way of invitation to the TOP 12 Camp. What they now sought was the coveted YELLOW TOP 12 shirt. The yellow shirt is an invitation into the most prestigious club for Kickers and Punters. Who would join the company of players such as Dan Bailey (Cowboys), Justin Tucker (Ravens), Ryan Succop (Titans), Bryan Anger (Buccaneers), Jeff Locke (Colts), Tress Way (Redskins) and many many more? College All-Americans, Lou Groza Award Winners, Ray Guy Award Winners, NFL Draftees, NFL All-Pros, NFL Superbowl Champions, etc. The atmosphere was intense.

Take a look at the results…

Day 1

Field Goal Champion
Cody Williams (2018, CA) – Cody put on a stellar performance. Coming into camp, he was one of the lowest ranked kickers in attendance. He knew he would have to work his way up the ladder, and he did exactly that by coming out of the gates hot. He won the field goal last man standing competition by going 6-6 with a long of 58 yards. Due to a strong overall camp performance he earned a 5-Star rating and is now a top 20 nationally ranked prospect.

Punt Champion
Nick Mihalic (2018, IL) – Nick was a wild card invitee and he quickly proved worthy of the selection. He is a phenomenal punting prospect that easily averages 45+ yards with 4.5+ hang time. He defeated a very strong field of punters on day one and proved that he would be a force to be reckoned with in the fight to become the overall TOP 12 punt champion. His performance throughout the three days earned him a 5-Star rating and he is now ranked the #3 punter in America.

Day 2

Kickoff Champion
Cole Talley (2018, TX) – Cole is one of the absolute strongest kickers in the nation. He continually shows his strength by dominating kickoff competitions. He hit 5 consecutive kickoffs over 70 yards, with 4.0+ hang time. His best ball measured 75 yards, with 4.23 hang time. Cole is a big time talent that has endless potential. He is a 5-Star rated kicker and a top 20 nationally ranked prospect. He is also one of the most popular athletes amongst his peers.

Punt Champion
Issac Power (2018, CO) – Issac put together another impressive performance in Tampa. Coming off a huge performance at TOP GUN where he earned U.S. Army All-American honors, he stayed hot. He punts for a great combination of distance and hang time and is able to perform very well under pressure. He is a 5-Star rated punter and made a big jump all the way up to the #4 ranked punter in the nation.

Day 3

Field Goal Champion (Head-To-Head)
Charles Campbell (2018, TN) – The is the most difficult kicking competition to win for the entire year! Charles has been on a roll. He earned U.S. Army All-American honors at TOP GUN, committed on full scholarship to Indiana and now won the 2017 TOP 12 Kicking Championship in the last two weeks. He is simply an outstanding kicker. He has an elite leg, kicks with excellent consistency and knows how to step up under pressure. Charles is a 5-Star rated kicker and ranked #3 in America.

Punting Champion (Head-To-Head)
Jake Camarda (2018, GA) – The is the most difficult punting competition to win for the entire year! Jake came in as the #1 seed and the #1 ranked punter in American and he showed exactly why he is worthy of that honor. The Vegas XXIX Punting Champion dominated the TOP 12 field with an NFL type performance. He easily knocked off top rated prospects one by one, besting Nick Mihalic in the final. The University of Georgia is getting the best punter in America.

After three amazing days, decisions had to be made. Athletes were called into the war room to learn their fate. In the end, only twelve would earn the honor of TOP 12 and walk away with the yellow shirt. The tension was at an all time high.

Introducing your 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking TOP 12…

BT Potter (2018, SC) – The Clemson commit is the real deal. He dominates at every aspect of the game and is ready for any and all challenges ahead. BT was recently selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and he is now your new #1 kicker in the nation.

Jake Camarda (2018, GA) – The clear cut #1 punter in the nation and now #4 ranked kicker in the U.S., Jake is the very best combo player in the nation with a big time future ahead of him. The four year Chris Sailer Kicking student is beyond ready for the next level.

Evan McPherson (2018, AL) – The Mississippi State commit is one of the best kickers to every participate in the TOP 12 Camp. He is a 5-Star rated kicker and the #2 ranked ranked kicker in the nation. He is also an outstanding punter. Evan is impressive both on and off the field.

Nick Mihalic (2018, IL) – Nick was the biggest surprise of the camp and will reap the benefits from his strong performance. He is now the best available punting prospect in America and all recruiting attention will surely point in his direction.

Charles Campbell (2018, TN) – The Indiana commit and two time TOP 12 camp participant has climbed all the way up to the #3 spot in the nation, and rightfully so. One of the most liked participants at the camp, Charles is going to be a great fit in every way for Indiana.

Will Reichard (2019, AL) – Will is the clear cut #1 ranked kicking prospect in the Class of 2019. He has been a student of Chris Sailer Kicking since the 6th grade and already holds a scholarship offer from LSU.
