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.

Chris Sailer Kicking Keeping a Close Eye on Potential Draft Picks this Weekend…

Here at Chris Sailer Kicking we’ll be watching the NFL draft with great interest this weekend. We have some terrific alumni available for the draft. Here are some names of potential picks to keep an eye on:

 

 

Dustin Hopkins – Florida State, Kicker – Dustin hit on an FSU record 145 straight PATs putting him 6th on the all-time NCAA PAT streak list. He enters the draft as the number one kicking prospect in the country with BleacherReport.com predicting he could be a ten year kicker in the league. Good luck Dustin, we’ll be watching.

Jeff Locke – UCLA, Punter – This left-footer has a booming left and has been ranked in the top 100 players in this draft by several sources including NFL.com. Locke’s 44.58 yard career punting average for the Bruins ranks him second all-time at the school. We have high hopes for Jeff, and look forward to seeing him play on Sundays.

Quinn Sharp – Oklahoma State, Kicker – Quinn is OSU’s first three-time All-American. He has exceptional skills as a punter and kicker, averaging over 46 yards per punt last year and hitting on 85% of his field goals. BleacherReport.com compares him to the Viking’s Chris Kluwe. It’s been a lifelong goal of Quinn to play in the NFL. We’re rooting for you Quinn!

Ryan Allen – Louisiana Tech, Kicker – Ryan is the only kicker ever to win the Ray Guy Award in two consecutive years, 2011 and 2012. He averaged 48 yards on 45 kicks last year, and has an 85 yarder as his personal best. NFL.com’s Gil Brandt says it all with his comment “Allen has a very, VERY strong leg.” That he does. Best wishes this weekend Ryan!

Scott Kovanda – Ball State, Kicker – Scott was a finalist for this year’s Ray Guy Award. In 2012 only six of his punts were even returned, averaging over 40 yards per kick. Scott referred to his NFL combine visit as a job interview and compared the experience to speed dating. Go get ‘em Scott.

Zach Brown – Portland State, Kicker – NFL.com’s Senior Analyst Gil Brandt comments that “The ball just seems to jump off of his leg”. Zach’s real last name is Ramirez, but he used Brown at Portland State, where he hit on 17 of 18 FGs in 2012. At the school’s Pro Day he hit 6 out of 6 on his FG attempts hitting on 2 from 55 yards. Best of luck Zach, we look forward to seeing your winning smile in the NFL!

Quinn Sharp – Player Profile – Upcoming Draft Status

With the impending NFL draft, we would like to recognize another Chris Sailer Kicking alum, Quinn Sharp.

The versatile player has both skills as a Kicker and as a Punter. Quinn has had quite the college career at Oklahoma State University. He is the program’s first ever 3-time All-American. In 2010 he won the award as a Punter, and in 2011 and 2012 he was recognized as an All-American Kicker. He had a career punting average of almost 46 yards (45.9) which led active NCAA punters, and set a new OSU record. He had a career field goal accuracy of 84.7%, placing him second in the nation among active Kickers in the NCAA.

NFL.com notes his leg strength, particularly on kickoffs, and his 5-second plus hang times when punting inside the twenty. BleacherReport.com says he has a “NFL leg” and compares him to the Minnesota Vikings’ Chris Kluwe (another  CSK alum).

Quinn has always dreamed of being an NFL player, but Kickers are rarely drafted. In spite of that, there are those that expect him to go in the 6th or 7th round. Some analysts say his versatility could have him going as high as the 4th round.

Even if he goes to an NFL camp undrafted, he will certainly make his dream of playing pro ball come true. Chris Sailer Kicking is excited to watch the draft this week, and look forward to seeing our friend Quinn Sharp playing this fall on Sundays.

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.

  • 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

  • There is no bleacher seating.  Bring chairs or buy some cheap chairs if you would like to sit while you watch.

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

  • 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!

Indoor vs. Outdoor Stadiums, Good or Bad for Kickers/Punters?

While every Kicker or Punter is expected to learn to handle different situations, the type of stadium can have an impact on the kick. There is proper technique in various weather conditions that needs to be accounted for by a Kicker and Punter in order to execute properly.

Indoor Stadiums

A key advantage of an indoor stadium is the distinct lack of weather conditions. Kickers do not need to worry about wind, rain, snow or other conditions impacting the kick. It also reduces the risk of slipping and sliding since rain is not a factor. Indoor Stadiums are obviously ideal for Kickers and Punters. Although, one thing to keep in mind is the noise that is generated by fans in an indoor stadium can be defining and a major distraction for Kickers and Punters.

Outdoor Stadiums

An outdoor stadium has a disadvantage when it comes to weather. Finding your footing for a Kicker on a field goal or extra point is always an issue in extreme weather conditions. Punters run the risk of dropping snaps and or staying warm throughout the game. These issues must be addressed by Kickers and Punters in the same way that handle their day-to-day training, they must practice in these types of conditions or at least simulate the best they can, to insure they are prepared.

The type of stadium does impact the game slightly, but it is ultimately a minor issue. A Kicker or Punter with experience is more likely to do well in any conditions due to the greater experience of different weather conditions, but it is usually a minor issue for good Kickers and Punters.

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…


Meet the “TOP 12” Class of 2014!
