The 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking Summer Camp Tour made a stop in Chicago, IL on July 13th.  The camp took place at Rosemont Dome setting up ideal conditions to learn and compete.  There was a great mixture of veterans and newcomers in attendance eager to get after it.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Champion
Lucas White (2018, IN) – Lucas put on a great performance from start to finish.  The combo player showed excellent ability in all areas of his game.  On this day he was the kickoff champion.  His best ball measured 73 yards, with 4.03 hang time.  He then dominated the finals round head to head match-ups with his punting.  Lucas has all the tools to challenge at the D1 level.

Field Goal Champion
Milan Dezelich (2018, IN) – Milan had his best day yet at a Chris Sailer Kicking camp.  He has a great leg and shows excellent college potential.  He won a major field goal competition by connecting on 6 straight field goals from 35 to 53 yards out.  He also did a nice job kicking off and showed some punting potential.  With continued hard work, Milan will do very well at the next level.

Devin Parker (2018, IL) – Devin has now won a major competition at back to back Chris Sailer Kicking camps.  He is a great kicker that competes very well under pressure.  He won the field goal competition with 7 straight field goals with a long of 54 yards.  He also does a great job on kickoffs.  Devin is going to make a fine addition to a college football program.

William Powers (2019, CA) – William traveled across the country to compete and it payed off.  He is a powerful rising junior that shows great potential as a punter.  He averaged 40+ yards with 4.3+ hang time on the day.  His best hits traveled 45+ yards, with 4.6+ hang time.  He is also a developing kickoff man.  Look for William to compete with the top punters in his class over the next few years.

Class of 2018
The Class of 2018 dominated this camp.  Quentin Wallace was a finalist in every kicking competition.  He is 5-Star Kicking Prospect without a doubt and should pick up multiple D1 offers.  Michael Cooney put in another great day of work.  He is a smooth and consistent kicker.  Adam Krause was the most dominant punter at camp.  There is big time potential in him.  Grant Gonya was back in action and had a great camp.  he holds current offers from Youngstown State and Army.

IL Summer Camp Recap – Cote Wins It!

The Chris Sailer Kicking 2015 Summer Tour is in full swing. The regional summer camps kicked off this past Thursday in Chicago, IL. Over 100 specialists from 15 plus states were in attendance to train and compete with the best. This camp has a great history, most recently landing champions Tanner Blain at San Diego State and Tyler Davis at Penn State last year. I expect similar results from this year’s talented group. Take a look at the champions and other standouts.

Camp Champion: David Cote (2016, Canada) – David is an incredible talent. He is big, strong, athletic and naturally talented. He won the charting field goal session proving his consistency and showing off his range. He came through in the head to head finals hitting consecutive field goals of 47, 52, 57 and 60 yards off the ground. His kickoffs are also tremendous. If you didn’t know the name before, you know it now. David is a D1 specialist without a doubt.

Field Goal Champion: Nate Needham (2016, IN) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student is an all around standout. He won the last man standing field goal competition by nailing 5 consecutive field goals of 35, 40, 45, 50, and 52 yards. He kicks off the ground with ease and consistency. He averages 65 plus yards on kickoffs with 3.8 – 4.1 hang time. Nate also excels punting the football. He is a D1 talent.

Kickoff Champion: Kaden Keon (2016, MI) – The Chris Sailer Kicking “Event Elite” Member has one of the strongest legs in the nation and is an incredible competitor. He won the kickoff competition by hitting 75-yard kickoffs and consistently putting up 4.0 plus second hang time. Kaden is also strong on both field goals and punts. Kaden will compete very well at the D1 level.

Punt Champion: Bryce Webb (2017, KY) – The #4 ranked punter in the nation again proved why. This is now the third consecutive regional camp that he has appeared in the finals. Bryce is a great athlete with the prototypical punter frame. He easily averages 40 plus yards and shows the ability to hit 4.8-5.1 hang time punts. He should be a top target for college coaches in next year’s recruiting class.

Other 2016 Standouts: Austin Chekaluk, Christian Dinevski, Henry Tarbox, Karl Schmidt, Ryley Guay, Seiver Tandy & Tyler Grimes.

Top 2017 Kicker: Quinn Saluan (OH) – Quinn is a very talented kicker / punter. The veteran Chris Sailer Kicking specialist is a good athlete with one of the stronger legs in his class. He hits 50 plus yard field goals off the ground. His kickoffs are solid and improving. He is also a capable punter. Quinn is a competitor that has a bright college future.

Other 2017 Standouts: Adam Durocher, Chase Bruns, Cody Gronewold, Declan Holm, Matt Hellen, Noah Donatelli.

Class of 2018/2019 Future Stars: Brandon Walters, Brayden Johnson, Eduardo Favella, Eric Hildebrand, Andy Vujnovich, Zac Adams, Jake Holous & James Turner.

Chris Sailer Kicking will next make a stop in Dublin OH for the FBU Top Gun camp (July 17-18) where we will be selecting the 2016 U.S. Army All-Americans as well at the Adidas Freshman All-Americans & FBU Class of 2020 and 2021 All-Americans.
