Chris Sailer Kicking has its First Super Bowl Champion

Chris Sailer Kicking Alum and Baltimore Raven Kicker Justin Tucker is a Super Bowl Champion! Tucker and the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in a thrilling and event filled Super Bowl last night in New Orleans. Tucker again was instrumental in the Ravens win connecting on 2 of 2 field goals and adding 4 extra points.

Both of Tucker’s field goals came after the bizarre power outage that delayed the game for over 30 minutes. This is an impressive feat as anything that throws a wrench in the flow of a game can be detrimental to a kicker’s rhythm. Tucker overcame this flawlessly as he drilled both his field goals in the second half. Not to mention the fake field goal attempt in which Tucker came up just short, but took a HUGE hit and got right up!

A product of Westlake High School in Austin, TX. Tucker stayed close to home and attended the University of Texas where starred for the Longhorns.

Tucker has become one of, if not the top kicker in the NFL. The Ravens leaned on him throughout the 2012 playoffs and finally in the Super Bowl!

Congratulations from your extended “kicking” family at Chris Sailer Kicking, we couldn’t be more proud of your success this year!

Chris Sailer Kicking’s Jonathan King Commits to Tennessee Tech

The no. 4 punt prospect in the nation, Jonathan King, has committed to Tennessee Tech after careful consideration of multiple programs.  The 6’1”, 160 pound King has chosen to stay close to home as he fulfilled his wishes of nestling in to a school that feels like the perfect academic fit. As a 2012 National Event Punt finalist, and the 2012 Vegas Initial Round Punt Champion (Class of 2013,) King has been a student of CSK since 2011. King’s technique and consistency rank among the best in his class, and we wish him well as we send him off to college ball.

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:

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!
