I’m a Senior, What Should I Do In November?

5 Easy Tips For The Class of 2018 To Get Ahead In Recruiting – November

1. Stop panicking.  We are still very early in the recruiting process.  Less that 5% of the class of 2018 (K/P) have made college commitments.  Less than 10% of the class of 2018 (K/P) have been offered any sort of college opportunity.  Note, there are many waves of recruiting.  Recruiting will last all the way through August when fall camps officially begin for the upcoming college football season.

2. Take unofficial visits as often as possible.  An unofficial visit simply mean that you have to pay for the visit yourself.   Getting on campus is the best way to show a college football program genuine interest.  Sending emails, making phone calls, direct messaging on social media, etc. simply isn’t enough anymore.  A coach will know that you have a real interest once you make the effort to get on campus.

3. Start to narrow down your search to universities and colleges that are realistic options.  This includes level of football (FBS, FCS, D2, D3, NAII, JC, etc.), level of academics, region of the country, etc.  Stop targeting D1 football programs if you are not a D1 recruit.  Stop targeting high academic institutions if you have a 2.0 GPA.  Find schools that will reciprocate interest in you and opportunities will follow.

READ THIS BLOG ON HOW SCHOOLS RECRUIT

4. Ask for an opportunity, not a scholarship.  Every college coach in America knows that you would like to be offered a scholarship.  When you ask for a scholarship, this turns them off.  You are basically limiting communication opportunity.  When you ask for an opportunity to be on the team, coaches will be receptive.  You are opening a door for communication.  The goal in recruiting is to create options.  Offers of any kind, create buzz, which create more options.  Scholarship vs. Preferred Walk On offers will take care of itself in the end.

5. Get ready for XXXI (January 13-15, 2018).  The biggest mistake made these days is thinking that recruiting for seniors is already over by this time.  In fact, it is the exact opposite.  90% of Kickers / Punters in this class will be recruited heavily during this time of year.  It will be feeding frenzy.  National Letter of Intent Day (NLI) is in early February.  Vegas takes place this time of year for this reason.  College coaches pay a tremendous amount of attention to the Vegas results and post Vegas rankings.  Scholarships offers and preferred walk on opportunities will be won this weekend in Vegas.

Join us for the largest kicking, punting & long snapping camp in the world, Vegas!!!

TODAY is Long Snapper Appreciation Day! Contest is on!

Today we celebrate the first ever Long Snapper Appreciation Day.  It is time that we all give credit to the unsung heroes of the football team, our long snappers.  Be sure to post your contest entries today showing your appreciation for your long snapper or for long snappers in general.  Read the ENTRY RULES HERE.

I was fortunate to have one of the best long snappers of all time…. Chris Rubio.  Our relationship began many years ago.  Here is a look back and a look forward at a relationship that is about much more than just football.  Enjoy this timeline….

August, 1995: Rubio and I met at UCLA during Fall Camp of my true freshman season.  Rubio was beginning his third season at UCLA.

September, 1995: Rubio and I both started in our first college game together against Miami in the Rose Bowl.  Rubio was a redshirt sophomore.  I was a true freshman.

1995/1996: Rubio snapped to his first All-American Kicker Bjorn Merten.

1997: In my first year starting as both a kicker and punter, Rubio’s snapping and calming influence was the key to my All-American season as both a kicker and punter.  As a team (Sailer/Rubio) we were the first ever to be named All-American in two positions in one year.

Take a look HERE

1997-2003: Rubio and I remained great friends off the field without football.

January, 2003: Rubio came to Vegas to assist me with the first ever Vegas National Event.  He helped me coach a dozen long snappers.

February, 2003: Rubio became a part of Chris Sailer Kicking and began coaching long snappers.  A part time job eventually became a full time job and Rubio Long Snapping was born.

2003-2017: Rubio Long Snapping & Chris Sailer Kicking became the #1 Specialist brand in the World! Combined we train, mentor and evaluate thousands of athletes per year.

2017-Future: Expect greatness.

What most people do not know is that the success Rubio and I have enjoyed on the field and in the specialist business is driven by a special friendship off the field.  We have been best friends since we first met in 1995.  From single young men in college….. to now married 40 year olds with a combined 7 children and dominant business together, we have grown up together every step up of the way.  We have a mutual respect, trust and love for one another that is unparalleled.

I would not be where I am today and I would not be the man that I am today without Chris Rubio.  Rubio, thank you for being my Long Snapper.  Rubio thank you for being my business partner.  Rubio, thank you for being my friend.  Happy Long Snapper Appreciation Day!

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.
