Chris Sailer Kicking Punter Nicholas O’Toole commits to West Virginia

The exposure that Chris Sailer Kicking gives to its players has never been more evident in the recent success story of Fullerton JC Punter Nicholas O’Toole.  A virtual unknown on the recruiting scene after his first year at Fullerton Junior College, O’Toole planned on returning to the school for his sophomore season. Those plans changed after the Chris Sailer Kicking National Event last month in Las Vegas.

After an impressive showing at the Event, O’Toole was named to the “Top 12” coming out of the camp and opened many eyes at the D1 level. The 6’4” 215 pound O’Toole possesses the ideal size and strength to thrive at the next level and into the NFL.

Chris Sailer Kicking introduced O’Toole to the staff at West Virginia University and to say they were impressed is an understatement, in fact they were so impressed they offered O’Toole a full scholarship. O’Toole will sign his letter of intent to play for the Mountaineers on National Signing Day February 6th 2013.

This is true example of the power of exposure and relationships in the world of Kicking and Punting and Chris Sailer Kicking has both. O’Toole no doubt has the skills and talent to warrant a D1 Scholarship, but he needed the added exposure and CSK gave it to him. Chris Sailer Kicking couldn’t be more excited and proud of the future that awaits Nicholas O’Toole at West Virginia.

Look for O’Toole to star for the Mountaineers in the coming years.

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:

Bryan Anger – Mr. Power Leg in Football Kicking

Bryan Anger, a Chris Sailer kicking alum, wasn’t always known as America’s second best football punter in the nation and NFL. That said, he’s regularly made an impression in his football career, starting early on. In his college punting years, Anger made the All-Pac First Team three years straight.

In 2012 he was picked up as a third round draft pick and signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then, the rookie has posted 82 punts with an average 47.5 yard distance in 14 games. His overall yardage kicked totals almost 4,000 yards. It’s no surprise his teammates have nicknamed Bryan the moniker, “Banger,” for his powerful kicking leg and consistency.

Some critics are noting Anger needs development on directional kicking, harnessing the apparent power he has in a focused result. This development for now is expected to come with experience and game play, with Bryan having only played one full season so far.

2012 Herbalife 24 High School Football Awards

This past weekend was the Herbalife 24 Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio Awards for top high school Placekicker and Long Snapper. Three kickers and three long snappers were brought into L.A. Live for the awards show. The three finalists for the Chris Sailer Award for top Placekicker were Austin Rehkow (WA, ’13), Kevin Robledo (CA, ’15) and Wyatt Schmidt (MN, ’13). The three finalists for the Chris Rubio Award for top Long Snapper were Cole Mazza (CA, ’13), Gabriel Miller (IN, ’13) and Scott Sypniewski (IL, ’13).

Wyatt Schmidt & Cole MazzaThe weekend started off with the finalists that were flown into LAX being picked up in limos and driven to the JW Marriott. Once there, they, and a guest of their choice, relaxed in their rooms and waited for dinner at the ESPN Zone. The first night’s dinner was casual with everyone getting to know one another and to finally see the trophies they worked so hard to hopefully take home the next day.

Saturday started off with a breakfast at the Herbalife building with a presentation on nutrition and supplements. Following the breakfast, the finalists, along with Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio, were driven in a limo to Saddle Ranch restaurant on Sunset Blvd. Needless to say, they ate and ate and ate some more. At 6:00 pm, the Awards show officially started in the Herbalife building at L.A. Live. Everyone in attendance was formally dressed, looking sharp as the tension filled the air.

Master of Ceremonies Wayne Cook of Fox Sports West did a tremendous job as he brought up guest speakers and conducted interviews with the finalists on stage. After much adieu, the winner of the Chris Rubio Award for top high school Long Snapper in the country was presented to Cole Mazza and the winner of the top high school Placekicker in the country was presented to Wyatt Schmidt!

Dean Crozier has Committed to Rutgers!

Every February, on a yearly trip to Australia to evaluate Australian Punters, Chris Sailer Kicking discovered Dean.  He had only been punting for a few months when we took him on and trained him just February of this year.

During his training, realizing he was a special kicker, he was encouraged to attend our 11th Annual National Kicking Spring Event in Las Vegas, which happens in May.  Coming from Aussie football, he really performed at a high level and impressed everyone.  Chris Sailer Kicking then got him publicity by getting him all over the National Radar for schools looking for a punter of his caliber.

Dean may end up being one of the best punters to ever come through Chris Sailer Kicking.  He has the physical size and strength to dominate the D1 level.  Even though he just has recently picked up punting, he has made tremendous strides in a short amount of time. A big time prospect that has NFL written all over him with hard work.  At 6’7″ tall and 242lbs, he is a very big prospect for kicking!

Dean Crozier is the second of CSK’s Australian Punters to commit in this class (we have 3 per year).  Daniel Cadona committed to Lousiana Lafayette early this year also.

Here is a link to Dean’s Chris Sailer Kicking Profile.  Take note that his National Rank is currently 9th!
