Jack Driggers Is The Champion Of The IL Fall Camp!

The 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking Fall Camp Circuit has begun.  The road to Vegas XXIX and the “TOP 12” Camp has begun.  Over 1000 specialists from around the world will attend Chris Sailer Kicking camps in IL, FL, PA, WA, CA, NC, TX, AZ, GA & Las Vegas in the next few months for the best instruction, competition and exposure possible.  The first stop, Chicago, IL.  Talent from over 10 states stepped up big time.  Take a look at the results.

The overall camp champion was Jack Driggers.  The senior from Florida followed up an impressive summer with another dominating performance.  The 5-Star Chris Sailer Kicking prospect proved once again that he is a D1 scholarship level kicker.  He has huge range on field goals off the ground.  His kickoffs are D1 ready right now.  And he is also a capable punter.  On this day he won the kickoff competition with a 83 yard, 4.03 hang time ball.  He then defeated Tyler Hunt in the finals by nailing back to back 52 yard field goals.  OFFER NOW!!!

Tyler Hunt put together perhaps the best performance of any specialist on the day.  The senior from Michigan won a field goal competition by hitting 6 straight field goals with a long of 55 yards.  He also won the punt competition by staying consistent and showing he can hit the big ball.  In addition, he has the ability to drive kickoffs out of the back of the end zone.  Tyler is a special all around talent.

The underdog rising to top on the day was Tyler Bachara.  The sophomore stepped up and defeated the field in a major field goal competition.  Tyler continues to improve at a great rate and is proving that he has the ability to one day take his game to the college level.  He made 5 straight field goals with a long of 50 to win it.  Keep a close eye on him the next few years.
