2018 CA Spring Camp Recap – Seth Vernon Wins It!

The road to Vegas XXXII has officially begun. The 2018 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp Tour started in Los Angeles, CA on March 4. Well over 100 specialists representing over 10 states were in attendance at Notre Dame High School. The talent was off the charts. This camp was a great indication of how fierce the competition to make TOP 12 in Las Vegas is going to be in May. Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Seth Vernon (JC, CA) – Seth is an incredibly talented athlete. The 6’5”, 215 pound punter showed incredible potential from start to finish. He shows the ability to hit a big time D1 punt and became more and more consistent as the day went along. He won the camp by nailing 9 of out of 10 punts 40+ yards with 4.4 plus hang time in the finals round. He hit several balls 50+ yards with 5.0 plus hang time. Seth should be the #1 junior college punting prospect in the nation in the Class of 2019.

Field Goal Champions
Ronan Donnelly (2020, CA) – Ronan had an outstanding all around day. He was smooth and accurate on field goals and got great height on his ball off the ground. He also showed that he can hit a D1 level kickoff. His best ball measured 68 yards with 4.08 hang time. Ronan has proven that he is a top national kicking prospect in the Class of 2020. Big things are ahead for this young athlete.

Harry Hill (2019, HI) – Harry was one of the very best kickers in attendance once again. He recently won a major field goal competition in Las Vegas and followed that up with another one in CA. He hits a pure ball and is one of the most consistent performers in the nation. Harry is also strong on kickoffs. Look for Harry to dominate Vegas XXXII in May and should challenge for a TOP 12 spot.

Kickoff Champion
Andrew Rodriguez (JC, CA) – The long time Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker/Punter was solid as usual. He won the kickoff competition by hitting 4 kickoffs 65+ yards with 3.8 – 4.1 hang time. He was also one of the best field goal kickers and did a nice job punting the ball. He is a top junior college prospect that is eligible to transfer now and still has 4 years to play 3. He is going to make a fine addition to any college football program.

So You Didn’t Make TOP 12, What Now?

For the past few weeks, you have been waiting anxiously to see if you were going to be selected to the TOP 12 Camp.  When the first 20 selections were announced, 20 kickers / punters were ecstatic.  Hundreds of others were upset, frustrated, angry, etc…. rightfully so.  As athletes and competitors the desire to succeed should run deep.

Couple ways to look at it….

You can be upset with me for not selecting you. You can be upset with yourself for not performing when it counted. You can even find a way to blame others, but, it is ultimately on you. The only thing you can control is how hard and smart you work. Everyone in Vegas is competing for the same spots. Don’t let anybody outwork you and you will see different results.

You need to use this as motivation to make sure you perform better. This is all up to you. The choice is yours.

If you are a Kicker / Punter that strives to be the best, you want to be at that TOP 12 camp this summer. Any single athlete that has been there (scholarship Kickers / Punters, All-Americans, NFL players) will tell you it is, by far, the best camp they have ever been to in their life. What you need to do is get back on the horse. Work smarter and harder. Your opportunity is waiting for you in Las Vegas. VEGAS XXXII

At Vegas XXXII, I will choose 20 additional TOP 12 Camp Invitees.  They will join the first 20 selected at the Invite Only TOP 12 Camp this summer.   This is a true invite only camp. I do NOT just hand out invites to get people to come to it. That would give me no credibility. I choose the best because they are the best. They will represent the TOP 12 and Chris Sailer Kicking forever.

Are you one of them? Time to decide. Prove to me, and the rest of the world, that you belong.

Or don’t. THE CHOICE IS YOURS…..

 

Who will make it in 2018?

The National Placekicker of the Year is named in honor of Chris Sailer for his outstanding high school career and nearly single handedly changing the world of kicking and punting as we know it.  Chris is now the most prominent private kicking and punting  coach in World.  He has made the positions of kicking and punting  a specialty and is revered around the country through his website, as well as camps.  Through his training and development of young kickers and punter, almost 100 high school and junior college kicking & punting specialists now receive full ride scholarships each year for their skill in that position.

Chris Sailer played for Notre Dame High School (1993-1995).  He was an All-American PK and Punter. In 1994 he set the national record for most field goals in a season with 22.  Of those 22 field goals, 7 came from beyond 50 yards including success from 58, 57, 57, 54, 52, 52 and 50 yards.  Chris Sailer was rewarded with a full ride scholarship to UCLA in 1995.  He went on to earn All-American Honors as both a placekicker and punter during his time at UCLA.

2017 OH Fall Camp Recap – Parker Grothaus Comes Up Big!

The Chris Sailer Kicking 2017 Fall Camp Tour made another stop this past weekend in Massilon, OH. The camp featured a fantastic indoor facility, many talented kickers/punters, and CSK’s best staff (Sailer, Obi, Aaron Perez, Chris Nendick, Drew Basil & Andrew Gantz). The camp gave us a glimpse of what to expect at Vegas XXXI. The battle to earn TOP 12 honors this year should be phenomenal. Take a look at the results.

2017 OH Fall Camp – Chris Sailer Kicking

Overall Camp Champion
Parker Grothaus (TR, ): Parker was an absolute standout from the minute the camp kicked off. The 2017 high school grad and current transfer from Incarnate Word is a big time kicking prospect. He has a huge leg and proved that he is not doubt a D1 prospect. He won the kickoff competition by hitting several balls through the uprights with 4.0+ hang time. He also hits a pure ball off the ground on field goal and has 60+ yard range. Parker is an elite transfer prospect that is going to be a fantastic addition for any college football program.

Field Goal Champion
Jacob Moraschinelli (2020, ): Jacob had an impressive performance at his first Chris Sailer Kicking camp. He has a big time leg for his age and shows outstanding future college potential. He won the field goal competition by going 7-7 with a long of 57 yards. He also does a great job on kickoff and shows potential to develop as a punter. Jacob has all the tools to be a top specialist in the 2020 class. I expect him to compete with the best of the best at Vegas XXXI and could even challenge for a TOP 12 spot.

Punt Champion
Joey Mitchell (2019, OH): Joey is an excellent combo prospect. He was solid all day on both field goal and kickoff and stepped up when it counted the most during the punt competition. He has 50+ yard range on field goal. His kickoffs average 60+ yards, with 3.7+ hang time. And his strongest skill is his punting. He beat out a very talented field of punters by averaging 40+ yards, with 4.4+ hang time. Joey punts with nice technique and is one of the most consistent 2019 prospects in the nation. Look for Joey to dominate Vegas XXXI and challenge for a TOP 12 spot.
