National Long Snapper Appreciation Day / Chris Sailer Kicking Contest

Chris Sailer Kicking introduces National Long Snapper Appreciation Day. Long Snappers are often the most under appreciated football players on the field. The saying goes, “You never know the long snappers name, unless they mess up” and “If you are a long snapper, it is your hope that the announcer never mentions your name. That just means you are doing your job well.”

I can tell you from first hand experience that a long snapper directly effects the success of kicker. In 1997, I earned All-American honors as both a kicker and punter while at UCLA. I never saw a bad snap and in fact never saw the laces of the football that year. My long snapper, yep you called it, was Chris Rubio. Our operation was flawless all year and making kicks became easy with that immense confidence that my long snapper would be perfect for me every time. Rubio never did get his All-American plaque that year. He also didn’t get to travel with me to Orlando, FL to be a part of the Home Depot ESPN Awards Show.

So…. after all these years, I have decided that it is time to thank my long snapper with the National Long Snapper Appreciation Day. I am inviting the Chris Sailer Kicking family to join me to celebrate our unsung heroes on November 1st starting in 2017 and continuing on each year from here on out.

Chris Sailer Kicking Contest – Due November 1st by midnight (Winner TBA November 2nd)

Post a picture, video, story, a combination of all of the above, etc. to your social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) showing your appreciation for your long snapper. Be creative and capture the meaning of long snapper appreciation. Tag Chris Sailer in your post. Also text (818-209-8921) or email (Chris@ChrisSailerKicking.com) your entry to Chris Sailer. The winner will receive FREE admission to Vegas XXXI January 13-14, 2018. If you are already registered for Vegas, you will receive FREE admission to any Chris Sailer Kicking camp of your choice in the future (Excluding TOP 12 Camp & Underclassmen Invitational).

The time has come. I believe this might actually quiet Rubio and his comments about kickers/punters down a bit. Or maybe not. Regardless, I cannot wait to see your entries. Good luck!

2017 Chris Sailer Kicking TOP 12 Camp Recap, Best in the U.S. Compete!

The best of the best high school and junior college specialists in nation gathered in Tampa, FL to compete at the prestigious TOP 12 Camp. In order to be invited to attend this camp you had to dominate at either Vegas XXIX (January 2017) or Vegas 30 (May 2017). Twenty Kickers/Punters were selected in January and an additional twenty were selected in May. The two Vegas Events brought in well over 1000 specialists, so achieving this honor was a tall task. Five wild cards were added rounding out the field of the 45 best in America!

The format for the 2017 TOP 12 was brand new. After fourteen years of the TOP 12 and Event Elite format, this year the standard was set even higher. For the first time ever, 45 specialists would have to compete in July to earn the honor of TOP 12. And… the camp would be captured by film and crew for the first ever TOP 12 Web Series. The pressure was on as the stakes were set higher then hey had every been. Every athlete would be followed by cameras. Interviews, on field performance, competitions, off the field character and thorough evaluation would ultimately determine who would be selected to the first every true TOP 12!

Each athlete earned a BLACK TOP 12 Camp shirt by way of invitation to the TOP 12 Camp. What they now sought was the coveted YELLOW TOP 12 shirt. The yellow shirt is an invitation into the most prestigious club for Kickers and Punters. Who would join the company of players such as Dan Bailey (Cowboys), Justin Tucker (Ravens), Ryan Succop (Titans), Bryan Anger (Buccaneers), Jeff Locke (Colts), Tress Way (Redskins) and many many more? College All-Americans, Lou Groza Award Winners, Ray Guy Award Winners, NFL Draftees, NFL All-Pros, NFL Superbowl Champions, etc. The atmosphere was intense.

Take a look at the results…

Day 1

Field Goal Champion
Cody Williams (2018, CA) – Cody put on a stellar performance. Coming into camp, he was one of the lowest ranked kickers in attendance. He knew he would have to work his way up the ladder, and he did exactly that by coming out of the gates hot. He won the field goal last man standing competition by going 6-6 with a long of 58 yards. Due to a strong overall camp performance he earned a 5-Star rating and is now a top 20 nationally ranked prospect.

Punt Champion
Nick Mihalic (2018, IL) – Nick was a wild card invitee and he quickly proved worthy of the selection. He is a phenomenal punting prospect that easily averages 45+ yards with 4.5+ hang time. He defeated a very strong field of punters on day one and proved that he would be a force to be reckoned with in the fight to become the overall TOP 12 punt champion. His performance throughout the three days earned him a 5-Star rating and he is now ranked the #3 punter in America.

Day 2

Kickoff Champion
Cole Talley (2018, TX) – Cole is one of the absolute strongest kickers in the nation. He continually shows his strength by dominating kickoff competitions. He hit 5 consecutive kickoffs over 70 yards, with 4.0+ hang time. His best ball measured 75 yards, with 4.23 hang time. Cole is a big time talent that has endless potential. He is a 5-Star rated kicker and a top 20 nationally ranked prospect. He is also one of the most popular athletes amongst his peers.

Punt Champion
Issac Power (2018, CO) – Issac put together another impressive performance in Tampa. Coming off a huge performance at TOP GUN where he earned U.S. Army All-American honors, he stayed hot. He punts for a great combination of distance and hang time and is able to perform very well under pressure. He is a 5-Star rated punter and made a big jump all the way up to the #4 ranked punter in the nation.

Day 3

Field Goal Champion (Head-To-Head)
Charles Campbell (2018, TN) – The is the most difficult kicking competition to win for the entire year! Charles has been on a roll. He earned U.S. Army All-American honors at TOP GUN, committed on full scholarship to Indiana and now won the 2017 TOP 12 Kicking Championship in the last two weeks. He is simply an outstanding kicker. He has an elite leg, kicks with excellent consistency and knows how to step up under pressure. Charles is a 5-Star rated kicker and ranked #3 in America.

Punting Champion (Head-To-Head)
Jake Camarda (2018, GA) – The is the most difficult punting competition to win for the entire year! Jake came in as the #1 seed and the #1 ranked punter in American and he showed exactly why he is worthy of that honor. The Vegas XXIX Punting Champion dominated the TOP 12 field with an NFL type performance. He easily knocked off top rated prospects one by one, besting Nick Mihalic in the final. The University of Georgia is getting the best punter in America.

After three amazing days, decisions had to be made. Athletes were called into the war room to learn their fate. In the end, only twelve would earn the honor of TOP 12 and walk away with the yellow shirt. The tension was at an all time high.

Introducing your 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking TOP 12…

BT Potter (2018, SC) – The Clemson commit is the real deal. He dominates at every aspect of the game and is ready for any and all challenges ahead. BT was recently selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and he is now your new #1 kicker in the nation.

Charles Campbell (2018, TN) – The Indiana commit and two time TOP 12 camp participant has climbed all the way up to the #3 spot in the nation, and rightfully so. One of the most liked participants at the camp, Charles is going to be a great fit in every way for Indiana.
