2016 GA Fall Camp Recap – Vicente Wins It!

The 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking Fall Camp Tour concluded that past weekend with a final stop in Atlanta, GA.  Once again well over 100 specialists were in attendance representing over a dozen states.  The talent at this camp never disappoints.  Many of these athletes will be in the hunt for a TOP 12 spot this coming January in Las Vegas.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Gabriel Vicente (TR, FL) – The first time Chris Sailer Kicking student put in an impressive first performance, defeating many of the top national kicking prospect for the victory.  He stepped up when it counted the most and won a major field goal competition by nailing 6-7 of field goals in including a long of 54 yards.  He then swept through the semi-finals and finals round without missing a kick.  Gabriel is a talented transfer student who has the talent to challenge at any level.

Field Goal Champion
Jake Lane (2017, AL) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and Event Elite Member had another strong day from start to finish.  Coming off a season where he went 22-26 on field goals and recently being named a Sailer Award Finalist, he stepped up once again.  He went over 80% on the day and showed off his big leg by nailing several 50+ yard field goals.  He was also outstanding on both kickoff and punt.  Jake is ready for the next level.

Kickoff Champion
BT Potter (2018, SC) – BT was quite possibly the most talented kicker at the entire camp.  He is a great athlete with elite leg strength.  BT hit several field goals of 50+ yards off the ground and kicked with nice consistency.  He also dominated kickoffs all day long, winning the competition with a 70 yard, 4.00 second kick in less than perfect conditions.  He is also proving to be a capable punter.  BT is a top national prospect that will challenge for a TOP 12 spot this coming January in Las Vegas.

Punt Champion
Taylor Goettie (2017, GA) – Taylor put on a phenomenal performance from start to finish.  He proved he was easily the best punter at camp and dominated all punting competitions.  He is a great athlete with a big time leg.  He averaged well over 45 yards all day and hit some 60+ yard bombs.  Taylor punts for tremendous distance and shows flashes of great hang time.  He is a gifted recruit that could be a great steal in this recruiting class.  Look for Taylor to turn the heads of college coaches in Vegas.

Best Of The Best – Class of 2017

Alex Usry (GA) – One of the most consistent kickers in the nation.  He has a D1 leg and does his best under pressure.  An experienced and confident young man that is ready for the next level.

Jose Perez (FL) – Talented athlete with D1 talent.  Solid on field goals, big kickoffs & a capable punter.   Will make a fine addition to any college team.

Austin Galbraith (FL ) – Impressed at his first Chris Sailer Kicking camp.  A great athlete with an elite leg. Field goal and kickoffs are his strengths.

Other 2017 Standouts: Dallas Goddin, Jake Ramirez (TR), Keaton Borrelli, Zach Montrief, Ben DiRosa, Matt DiRosa.

Best Of The Best – Class of 2018

Cole Hanna (GA) – Cole is a gifted kicker that kicks with great technique and consistency.  He nearly won both the field goal and kickoff competitions.  He has a bright college future.

Mitchell Fineran (GA) – Mitchell is an excellent prospect.  He hits a pure ball of the ground and drives the ball deep on kickoffs.  Has the tools to challenge the very best.

Trey Smelcer (NC ) – The 6’7” specialist has great potential.  A big, tall, strong athlete that shows flashes of what he is capable as both a kicker and punter.  Watch out Vegas.

Other 2018 Standouts: Michael Ho, Alex Hardy, Bryce Jones, Drew Cassiday, McKay Taylor, Perry Shelbred, Collin Dempster, Josh Smith, Charles King.

Best Of The Best – 2019

Jason Stricker (NC) – Jason continues to impress.  Smooth, accurate and technically sound kicker.  Also developing as a punter.

Anthony Rodriguez (GA) – Anthony is a gifted kicker. He hits a nice ball off the ground on field goal already and drives the ball deep on kickoff.

Other 2019 Standouts: Bernardo Burgos, Nicholas Pope, Ethan Chauvin, Houston Coyle, Jake Skeens.

Best Of The Best – 2020

Brock Travelstead (GA) – Brock is a long time Chris Sailer Kicking student that has all the tools to be a top national prospect in this class.  He has a great leg and kicks with nice technique.

James Williams (GA) – James looks a freshman in a seniors body.  He is a naturally gifted kicker with an exceptional leg for his age.  The future is bright with continued hard work.

Hayden Olsen (GA) – Hayden is another longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student that is well on his way.  Hayden is very accurate and kicks with nice technique and confidence.

Other 2020 Standouts: Tristan Dukes, Nicholas Bodin, Kade Loggins.
