2017 AZ Spring Camp Recap, Narveson Victorious!

The road to Vegas 30 continued with a stop in AZ on April 9th.  This was by far the most talent we have seen in Phoenix.  Specialists from nearly 10 states were in attendance looking to come out and top gaining major national exposure.  On this day Brayden Narveson proved that he was clearly the class of the competition.  He was rewarded with a scholarship offer and subsequent commitment to Iowa State the following week. Exposure at its finest. Take a look at the results.

Overall ChampionBrayden Narveson (2018, AZ)
Brayden absolutely dominated the competitions on this day.  He won both major field goal competitions and also came out on top in the punt competition.  The TOP 12 Camp Invitee has all the tools to excel at the next level.  He is smooth and accurate on field goals.  His kickoffs are D1 ready.  And he also does a nice job punting the football.  Brayden is a big time pick up for Iowa State.  There are big things ahead for this talented athlete.

Kickoff ChampionGabriel Ballinas (JC, Mexico)
Gabriel is one of the most talented off the radar prospects out there.  He is from Mexico, but is currently living in Arizona.  He drives the ball 65-70 yards with around 4.0 second hang time.  His field goals are coming along nicely.  He also shows great ability as a punter.  Gabriel is the type of athlete that can compete and any college level.  Strong upside here.

Top 2017 Prospects: Gabriel Ballinas, Travis Reiner

Top 2018 Prospects: Brayden Narveson, Jake Veach, Cash Peterman, Zach Piwniczka, Brennan Holt, Brandon Brody, Brent Bakewell, Josh Carlson, Juan Ramirez, Michael Trafton, Trevor Gentner.

Underclassmen
The future kicking, punting & long snapping stars gathered in Bradenton, FL for the 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking Underclassmen Invitation July 21-22, 2016.  Well over 150 participants from over 30 states and other countries in the classes of 2021, 2020, 2019 & 2018 traveled  to Florida to be a part of this prestigious invitation only camp.  This has become one of our most popular camps of the year!  It is the ultimate chance for both athletes and their parents to bond, build friendships and learn about the world of kicking, punting and long snapping.  The future is looking bright with this group! Take a look at the results…

Day 1

Field Goal Champions

Class of 2019 & Younger
Carson Garrett (2019, TX) – Carson is an excellent young kicker.  He is a great athlete with elite leg strength.  He is already hitting a college level ball off the ground on field goals.  He is also very strong on kickoff and also showing punting ability.

Class of 2018
Ashton Garner – (2018, MS) – Ashton is a talented rising junior.  He has a big leg and competes very well under pressure.  He has all the tools to compete with the best in his class.  Ashton is an athlete with great upside.

Day 2

Field Goal Champions

Class of 2019 & Younger
Griffin Crosa (2019, OH) – Griffin is an outstanding young kicker.  He has a strong leg and kicks with great technique and consistency.  The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student is always a steady performer.  He is stepping up more and more with each camp.  The future is bright for Griffin.

Class of 2018
Wesley Wells (2018, GA) – Wesley is a gifted specialist.  Another great athlete with strong potential.  He shows he can hit an elite ball off the ground and also competes very well.  There is a lot of upside here. I expect Wesley to continue to develop into one of the best.

Kickoff Champion

Brayden Narveson (2018, TX) – Brayden is a big time talent.  He has an explosive leg and tremendous natural ability.  He hits a strong ball off the ground on field goals and competes with the best on kickoffs.  His best ball on the day was 64 yards with 4.07 hang time.  And he has only scratched the surface of what he is capable of.

Punt Champion

Class of 2019 & Younger
Carson Garrett (2019, TX) – Carson proved his all around ability by also stepping up and winning the punting competition for his division.  Carson is a outstanding future prospect.
