Highlight Videos Now Available Through Chris Sailer Kicking

Chris Sailer Kicking is happy to announce that Highlight Videos will now be available for purchase at Chris Sailer Kicking Camps/Events.  The very first opportunity to purchase a professional quality highlight video will be this weekend at the 11th Annual National Kicking Spring Event in Las Vegas May 4-5.  This is an incredible opportunity and will only be available to the first 30 Kickers, Punters, or Long Snappers that reserve their video.  We are offering a discounted promotional rate of $100 for Vegas this year.  Here is how it will work:

1. You can preegister for this service by emailing info@varsitytape.com.  In the subject line type: “Vegas Video”.  The staff will get back to you with further instructions.

2. You can register for this service in Las Vegas.  However, if 30 others preegister, unfortunately the service will no longer be available.  If you choose to take this route, you are taking a big risk.

Sample Videos were taken this past weekend at the 11th Annual National Kicking Preparation camp in Los Angeles.  These are rough cuts, so you can imagine how great the finished products will look.  If you choose to purchase a highlight video, the video will be yours to use as you see fit.  My recommendation: Email the video to coaches, Add the video to your Chris Sailer Kicking Player Ranking Profile, Add the Video to your NCSA Player Profile.

I highly recommend that you take advantage of this service.  Creating a quality kicking / punting highlight video can be a difficult task.  This small investment is well worth the reward.

2013 NC & GA Nike Spring Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking finished off its Nike Spring Camp Tour with stops in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA this past weekend.  Hundreds of specialists were in attendance hoping to land on the national stage.  The atmosphere, skill level, and competition was as high as any other Spring Camp in the nation.  Kickers, Punters, and Long Snappers from over 13 states competed at the very popular 1-day Nike Camps.  Take a look at who stepped up and who you might be seeing play on future Saturdays and Sundays.


Charlotte, NC

Champion:
Mick Ellis (2014 TX) – The 2 Time “TOP 12” Member was once again the best overall prospect in attendance.  He won both the field and kickoff competitions.  Mick was able to connect consistently from 55+ yards and kickoff 70+ yards with 4.0+ hang time.  He always steps up in competition and continues to prove that he will soon dominate on Saturdays as well.  Mick is a sure fire D1 Scholarship Kicker.

2014 Standouts:
Gregory Huegel (SC) – Gregory had a great day start to finish.  He excels at both field goals and kickoffs.  His fields goals are solid and very consistent up to 50+ yards off the ground.  His kickoffs are college ready.  Greg has a real shot at being a big time D1 player.

Destry Barnwell (NC) – Destry was the punt champion on this day.  The talented athlete averaged over 40 yards with 4.3+ hang time.  Destry continues to improve his game and is proving that he can punt at the college level.

Other 2014 Standouts: David Lamb, Patrick Woods, Tim Gawert, Topher Kline, and Tyler Cochran.

2015 Future Stars:
Cole Fisher (GA)  – Cole might just be the most talented young kicker in the nation in his class.  He is a great athlete, has a big leg, and handles pressure very well.  Look for Cole to be a future “TOP 12” Member and challenge for the #1 kicker in the nation.

Jackson VanSickle (NC) – Jackson continues to dominate competition.  A fine young athlete that kicks with excellent consistency.  Jackson has all the tools to be one of the very best in his class for years to come.

Other 2015 Standouts: Daniel Leonard, Dylan Baker, Evan Rabon, Luke Carter, Marion Watson, and Tyler Gallitz.

2016 Standouts: Brian Johnson and Jaxon Clark.

Atlanta, GA
Champion:
Michael Santamaria (2014 GA) – The “TOP 12” Member stepped up and won perhaps the most competitive Nike Spring Camp of them all.  Michael is one of the top field goal kickers in the nation and his kickoffs aren’t far behind.  He does a great job of making kicks when they count the most.  Look for Michael to turn some heads this summer and impress college coaches across the nation.

Other 2014 Standouts:
Rafael Gaglianone (TN) – The Vegas Champion killed it all day once again.  Rafael is perhaps the very best field goal kicker in the nation.  He kicks with outstanding consistency and shows excellent range off the ground.  His kickoffs are also D1 ready.  Look for Rafael to pick up D1 offers in the near future.  Offer Now!!!

Marc Nolan (GA) – Marc was the most impressive punter in Atlanta.  He had a great day start to finish averaging over 40 yards with 4.4+ hang time.  What was most impressive about Marc was his consistency even in less than perfect conditions.  Marc has what it takes to punt at the D1 level.

Other 2014 Standouts: William Ham, Luke Hardin, Tyler Newsome, Thomas O’Leary, Timmy Hartshorn, Ty Wilson, Alex Spence, Anel Ramic, Avery Bass, Daniel DiRoberto, and Landon Borrow.

2015 Future Stars:
Jameson Vest (GA) – Jameson was the most impressive newcomer to Chris Sailer Kicking.  He is a great athlete with a big time leg.  He also stepped up well under pressure and won one of the major field goal competitions.  He has the talent to be a top national kicker in his class.

Matt Bonadies (GA) – Matt was once again exceptional.  He has a huge leg and impresses on both field goals and kickoffs.  Look for Matt to be a big time D1 recruit in the coming years.

Other 2015 Standouts: Trace Halpern, Blanton Creque, Shawn Davis, and Trey Blasingame.

The 2013 Chris Sailer Kicking Nike Spring Camp Tour has been a tremendous success.  Camp Champions Jordan Dascalo (CA), Hunter Morrow (TX), Mike Knoll (IL), Mick Ellis (NC) and Michael Santamaria are already getting huge attention in the recruiting world.  Up next, the biggest kicking, punting, and long snapping spring camp in the world…The 11th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas May 4-5, 2013.

Vegas – May

The 11th Annual National Kicking Spring Event – Sponsored by Nike is less than a month away.  While many specialists are taking this time of year off, those that seriously want to play in college and know what it takes are working harder than ever.  Those hard workers will be in Las Vegas May 4-5, 2013 ready to impress and gain the most valuable national exposure in the nation.  Here is some useful information for those attending and those that are still considering attending.

  • Event Date: May 4-5, 2013
  • Arrive Friday May 3rd.  The earlier that you arrive, the more well rested you will be for the weekend.
  • Plan on being at camp until 5PM Sunday May 5th.  There is no way of knowing if you will make the Finals Round Sunday until you and all other participants have completed the initial round of charting Sunday morning.  Whether you make the Finals Round or not, you should plan on staying on watching the Finals Round.  Get the full experience from the camp!
  • Friday Small Group Sessions (4:00 – 5:00 & 5:00 – 6:00) are OPTIONAL.  These were designed to knock some rust off, get rid of jet lag legs, and gain confidence heading into Saturday.  If you can make it, I highly recommend you attend. CLICK HERE
  • Location: Las Vegas Outdoor Soccer 1400 N. Rampart Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89128
  • There is no bleacher seating.  Bring chairs or buy some cheap chairs if you would like to sit while you watch.
  • Why May? May is also known as “Evaluation Period” for college coaches.  This is a very HOT time for recruiting for all classes.  May offers maximum exposure.  Chris Rubio and myself will be handing 100’s of calls after this event.  Recruiting Boards will be set based on results and our evaluations.  Want to be offered a scholarship at those college camps this summer?  Attending this camp is how they will know about you!
  • The 11th Annual National Kicking Spring Event gives you a chance to make the “Event Elite”.  There is NO set number of specialists that will be selected.  The number selected is based on the number of participants that can compete at that VERY HIGHEST LEVEL.  Usually 15-20 are selected to join the “TOP 12” at the most prestigious Invite Only Camp in the world.  CLICK HERE
  • Think you are good enough to make the “Event Elite” – CLICK HERE to see who you are competing with and to get a little history about the “TOP 12” & “Event Elite”
  • It is no surprise that from the 11th Annual National Kicking Event in January that the #1 and #2 CSK kickers in the nation are already committed to Virginia and North Carolina and the #1 CSK punter already has an offer from Colorado.  The Spring Event will determine who is next.
  • The Spring Event in NOT an Invite Only Camp.  This camp offers a great experience to kickers, punters, and long snappers of all levels.  Expect a wide range of talent from beginners to the best of the best from around the world in the Classes of 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, Junior Colleges and 4-Year Transfer Students.  The best of the best, The “Event Elite”, selected from the Spring Event will be invited to attend the “TOP 12” and “Event Elite” Camp in June.
  • Come prepared to enjoy your experience.  Do NOT put to much pressure on yourself.  Come with open eyes and ears.  Learn from your instructors and your peers.  Look around and take it all in.  Watch other groups.  Watch the college and pro demo.  Attend the Meetings.  There are so many things to learn and that you can and will benefit from if you take advantage.  Leave the camp with goals and a motivation to work harder than ever!
  • Saturday – Instructional Day.  You will get plenty of reps.  Pace yourself.  Saturday ends with a Chris Sailer Kicking Original Last Man Standing Competition. Your group numbers will be emailed to you about a week prior to camp.
  • Sunday – Competition Day.  You will be charted.  You can compete in 1, 2, or all 3 skills.  This is up to you.  Your competition start time will be assigned to you at Check-In Saturday.
  • Those that just punt – you are automatically in Group #2.
  • Class of 2016, 2015, and 2014 – You may use tees up to 2″ for both Field Goal and Kickoffs.  The choice is yours.  Class of 2013, JC, and Transfers you must kick off the ground for Field Goals and use a 1″ tee for Kickoffs.
  • Saturday Meetings are the the Group Rate Hotel – JW Marriott.  I highly advise that participants and their parents attend. Meetings are from 6:30 – 7:30.  Get there early and enjoy.
  • What makes Chris Sailer Kicking the best in the business?  1st National Camp Ever for Specialists.  1st Kicking Company to ever to rank Kickers, Punters, and Long Snappers on a true national scale.  Chris Sailer is physically at EVERY camp associated with Chris Sailer Kicking.  Chris Sailer is the ONLY one that handles the evaluations and rankings for the Kickers and Punters.  Same holds true for Chris Rubio with the Long Snappers.  Talk to any college coach in America or any kicker or punter that has been to multiple camps and will see that Chris Sailer Kicking is the place to be for the best possible instruction and exposure.  Our advertising is word of mouth.  Come see for yourself!  See you in May!

Meet the 2013 “TOP 12”

In 2003, Chris Sailer Kicking established the biggest kicking, punting, and long snapping camp the world had ever seen, The National Kicking Competition.  The camp brought in the best of the best from across the nation to compete at one location.  The camp established credible recruiting rankings and evaluations for kickers, punters, and long snappers that college coaches across the country would use for years to come.  The camp, now known as the National Kicking Event, takes place in Las Vegas each year in January.

Every athlete comes with one major goal in common, making the prestigious “TOP 12”.  This is THE exposure list to be on for national exposure.  The twelve best underclassmen in the nation are identified for the Kicking/Punting positions.  The best of the best are then invited to the exclusive, invite only, “TOP 12” camp that following summer.  College coaches take notice, and scholarships are awarded.

To get an idea for what the “TOP 12” is all about, take a look at some of the very best over the years:  David Buehler (USC, Dallas Cowboys & New York Giants), Ryan Succop (South Carolina & Kansas City Chiefs), Thomas Weber (Arizona State, Lou Groza Award Winner, & Cincinnati Bengal), Kai Forbath (UCLA & Lou Groza Award Winner, & Washington Redskin), Dan Bailey (Oklahoma State, Lou Groza Award Winner & Dallas Cowboys), & Randy Bullock (Texas A&M, Lou Groza Awards Winner, & Houston Texan), Bryan Anger (CAL & Jacksonville Jaguar), Blair Walsh (Georgia & Minnesota Viking All-Pro), Justin Tucker (Texas, Baltimore Raven & Super Bowl Champion).  Just to name a few!

So far the “TOP 12” has already made some serious noise.  Gary Wunderlich picked up multiple offers and has committed to Virginia.  Freeman Jones has committed to North Carolina.  JK Scott has picked up an offer from Colorado.  And there is much more to come…

JK says: “I have such a strong passion for doing well in everything that I do and I am always trying to improve my skill.  My dedication to the sport shows in my workouts and in the weight room.  I am very knowledgable when it comes to training and staying healthy by eating right.  My physique helps:  I am a great athlete and my long legs as well as my explosive quick twitch muscle help me to generate a lot of force into the ball.  Hard work and desire leads to greater success.
Chris Sailer says: “JK is one of the most gifted natural punters that we have ever seen.  He has the size, strength, and talent to be a great college punter.  He reminds me a lot of former #1 High School Punter Bryan Anger as a young high school punter.  The sky is the limit.  Also a big time kicker.  JK is a phenomenal combo prospect.  OFFER NOW!!!”

Hayden says: “Plain and simple, my work ethic combined with my natural athletic abilities make me the best. I truly believe they are unmatched by anyone in the nation. I take all the necessary actions everyday in all aspects of life to become the best kicker in the nation. That is why I know I am the best. Also, I manage my time perfectly so I am never in over my head. From school work to social actions, I always know what has to be done and when it should be accomplished. This is why I am always in control of the various aspects of my life. It goes unnoticed because I go out about my business quietly, lead by example, and then let the results speak for themselves. ”
Chris Sailer says: “Hayden is an outstanding kicking prospect.  He has one of the strongest legs in his class and shows big time potential.  Hits a huge ball at times.  Kickoffs are his current strength.  Field goals are coming along nicely.  A fine young man with a great attitude and work ethic.  Has the potential to be one of the very best in this class.  Looking forward to a great year ahead.  He should have a big offseason and impress college coaches nation wide.”

“Punters are People Too” Movement all started with CSK Alum Bryan Anger

In last April’s NFL Draft, Rich Eisen of the NFL Network coined the expression “Punters Are People Too” and what has ensued since has been a mini movement of sorts throughout the NFL.  Eisen proclaimed the now famous expression after the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Punter and Chris Sailer Kicking Alum Bryan Anger (Cal) in the 3rd round of last year’s NFL Draft.

Since that day the “Punters Are People Too” movement has created a frenzy amongnst NFL locker rooms. This was never more apparent than this past season when the Super Bowl Champs Baltimore Ravens wore the “Punters Are People Too” T-shirts in support of their Punter Sam Koch.

Punters Are People Too – Ravens

So, Punters all around the world owe a big thank you to Bryan Anger for the recent and well deserved respect they have been given of late.

2013 CA Nike Spring Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking 2013 CA Nike Spring Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking kicked off what will be its largest Nike Spring Camp Tour ever with the first stop being Los Angeles, CA.  Coming off a huge Vegas Event in January, athletes from all over the United States were anxious to get back on the field.  An amazing amount of talent was on hand and several specialists stepped up big time.  Take a look at the Champions & Standouts.

Camp Champion
Jordan Dascalo (2013 CA): Jordan was perhaps the most impressive all around specialist on the day.  He was near the top of every field goal, kickoff and punt competition.  He hit a 57 yard field goal off the ground, hit a 73 yard, 3.90 kickoff, and a 50 yard, 5.18 punt.  Jordan is a special athlete who currently holds offers from Alabama A&M and Arkansas Pine Bluff.Field Goal Champion
Levi Weiss (2013 OR): Levi was a newcomer to Chris Sailer Kicking, but fit right in.  Levi just started kicking few months ago and stepped up big on this day.  A natural kicker that has a real shot of taking his game to the college level.

Kickoff Champion
Kenny Smart (2014 CA): Kenny was the most impressive junior all day long.  Both his field goals and kickoffs were impressive.  He won the kickoff competition by hitting a 76 yard, 3.95 kickoff.  Coming off an impressive Vegas showing, Kenny is quickly becoming a well known college prospect.

Punting Champion
Manuel Meza (JC CA): Manuel had another huge day.  The recent 11th Annual National Kicking Event Punt Champion was one of the very best all day long.  He is consistent, has a huge leg, and punts very well under pressure.  Look for Manuel to be perhaps the top punter in Junior College football next year.

Best of the Best
2013 – Ruben Guzman (JC CA): The “TOP 12” Punter won 2 of the 4 major punt competitions.  Recently offered by Wyoming, Ruben proved exactly why once again.  No one has punted more consistently than Ruben over the past year.  Look for Ruben to be a top college punter for years to come.

2014 – Tristan Vizcaino (CA):  Tristan is an incredible all around prospect.  His field goals are clean off the ground, kickoffs are close to college ready, and he also shows excellent punting potential.  A great athlete that will have a big spring and summer.

2015 – Ben Kreitenberg (CA): Ben continues to be the top player in his class. He has a big leg, already kicks with consistency off the ground, and does extremely well under pressure.  Although his competition is creeping up on him, Ben still stands alone at the top.

Other Standouts
2013: Bret Miller, Joe Pierik
2014: Casey Sublette, Jackson Koonce, Jake Ambrose, Lucas Alfonso, Tim Strader, Tyler Duncan, Jonathan Weilbacher
2015: Adam Walter, Brandon Hong, Cameron Coe, Cristian Bianchi, Ethan Erickson, Gage Wilson

Chris Sailer Kicking will next travel to Dallas, TX (March 3), Chicago, IL (March 17), Charlotte, NC (April 13), Atlanta, GA (April 14) all culminating with the 11th Annual National Kicking Spring Event in Las Vegas May 4-5 in Las Vegas, NV.

The Value of Exposure

The Definition of Exposure is: the condition of being presented to view or to be made known.

This definition couldn’t be more relevant to the ultra-competitive landscape of High School Football and College Recruiting. It is more important now than ever to expose your talents to various Universities looking for top-level talent. Obviously, there are many ways to do this especially with the rise of various technologies like YouTube, Social Media and recruiting websites. However, this is not enough, you need to surround yourself with camps, organizations and people who are connected to these various Universities and whose opinions and recommendations are taken into the highest of consideration.

Chris Sailer Kicking is this Organization. CSK offers the MOST exposure in the country for high school Kickers and Punters. When a College Football Program is looking for a top level Kicker or Punter CSK is its first stop. Chris Sailer Kicking covers all aspects of exposure for its players including; Camps, National Events, Online Media, Player Rankings, Player Profiles, Social Media and probably the most important is the relationships CSK has with major College Football programs.

This has never been more evident than the recent story of Nicolas O’Toole. O’Toole was a virtually unknown Punter at Fullerton JC in Southern California. That all changed in a matter of days after attending the Chris Sailer Kicking National Event last month, where O’Toole performed at a very high level. This performance landed him a Top 12 ranking by Chris Sailer. Major College Football programs wait for this covenant list to come out after every one of CSK’s National Events to see who is ranked where and which players are still available. O’Toole was snatched up immediately by West Virginia University and was offered a fullide scholarship as a Punter.  Click Here to read more about O’Toole.
