So You Didn’t Make TOP 12, What Now?

For the past few weeks, you have been waiting anxiously to see if you were going to be selected to the TOP 12 Camp.  When the first 20 selections were announced, 20 kickers / punters were ecstatic.  Hundreds of others were upset, frustrated, angry, etc…. rightfully so.  As athletes and competitors the desire to succeed should run deep.

Couple ways to look at it….

You can be upset with me for not selecting you. You can be upset with yourself for not performing when it counted. You can even find a way to blame others, but, it is ultimately on you. The only thing you can control is how hard and smart you work. Everyone in Vegas is competing for the same spots. Don’t let anybody outwork you and you will see different results.

You need to use this as motivation to make sure you perform better. This is all up to you. The choice is yours.

If you are a Kicker / Punter that strives to be the best, you want to be at that TOP 12 camp this summer. Any single athlete that has been there (scholarship Kickers / Punters, All-Americans, NFL players) will tell you it is, by far, the best camp they have ever been to in their life. What you need to do is get back on the horse. Work smarter and harder. Your opportunity is waiting for you in Las Vegas. VEGAS XXXII

At Vegas XXXII, I will choose 20 additional TOP 12 Camp Invitees.  They will join the first 20 selected at the Invite Only TOP 12 Camp this summer.   This is a true invite only camp. I do NOT just hand out invites to get people to come to it. That would give me no credibility. I choose the best because they are the best. They will represent the TOP 12 and Chris Sailer Kicking forever.

Are you one of them? Time to decide. Prove to me, and the rest of the world, that you belong.

Or don’t. THE CHOICE IS YOURS…..

 

Who will make it in 2018?

2017 OH Fall Camp Recap – Parker Grothaus Comes Up Big!

The Chris Sailer Kicking 2017 Fall Camp Tour made another stop this past weekend in Massilon, OH. The camp featured a fantastic indoor facility, many talented kickers/punters, and CSK’s best staff (Sailer, Obi, Aaron Perez, Chris Nendick, Drew Basil & Andrew Gantz). The camp gave us a glimpse of what to expect at Vegas XXXI. The battle to earn TOP 12 honors this year should be phenomenal. Take a look at the results.

2017 OH Fall Camp – Chris Sailer Kicking

Overall Camp Champion
Parker Grothaus (TR, ): Parker was an absolute standout from the minute the camp kicked off. The 2017 high school grad and current transfer from Incarnate Word is a big time kicking prospect. He has a huge leg and proved that he is not doubt a D1 prospect. He won the kickoff competition by hitting several balls through the uprights with 4.0+ hang time. He also hits a pure ball off the ground on field goal and has 60+ yard range. Parker is an elite transfer prospect that is going to be a fantastic addition for any college football program.

Field Goal Champion
Jacob Moraschinelli (2020, ): Jacob had an impressive performance at his first Chris Sailer Kicking camp. He has a big time leg for his age and shows outstanding future college potential. He won the field goal competition by going 7-7 with a long of 57 yards. He also does a great job on kickoff and shows potential to develop as a punter. Jacob has all the tools to be a top specialist in the 2020 class. I expect him to compete with the best of the best at Vegas XXXI and could even challenge for a TOP 12 spot.

Punt Champion
Joey Mitchell (2019, OH): Joey is an excellent combo prospect. He was solid all day on both field goal and kickoff and stepped up when it counted the most during the punt competition. He has 50+ yard range on field goal. His kickoffs average 60+ yards, with 3.7+ hang time. And his strongest skill is his punting. He beat out a very talented field of punters by averaging 40+ yards, with 4.4+ hang time. Joey punts with nice technique and is one of the most consistent 2019 prospects in the nation. Look for Joey to dominate Vegas XXXI and challenge for a TOP 12 spot.

Class of 2018 Standouts: Parker Grothaus, Quentin Wallace, Nathan McRoberts, Tripp Slyman, Drew Cassidy, Eduardo Favella, Gavin Costello, Sam Strange, Dalton Nida, Dustin Rieser, Evan Malpass

Class of 2019 Standouts: Joey Mitchell, Porter Wilson, Chris Van Eekeran, Andrew Pollina, Asa Kempton, Brandon Walters, Brayden Johnson, Carter LaCoursierse, Daniel Dietrich, Griffin Crosa, Jack Ierulli, James Turner, Keaton Hier, Mason Molique, Noah Grant, Patrick Oliva, Sam Hogan, Andrew Kempen, Brock Holman, Dylan Hilger, Ian Kristan, Jackson Griskie, Jonah Phares, Kyle Farfsing, Logan Schmidt, Luke Barresi, Matthew Detty, Michael O’Shaughnessy

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.

Introducing your 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking TOP 12…

BT Potter (2018, SC) – The Clemson commit is the real deal. He dominates at every aspect of the game and is ready for any and all challenges ahead. BT was recently selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and he is now your new #1 kicker in the nation.

Jake Camarda (2018, GA) – The clear cut #1 punter in the nation and now #4 ranked kicker in the U.S., Jake is the very best combo player in the nation with a big time future ahead of him. The four year Chris Sailer Kicking student is beyond ready for the next level.

Evan McPherson (2018, AL) – The Mississippi State commit is one of the best kickers to every participate in the TOP 12 Camp. He is a 5-Star rated kicker and the #2 ranked ranked kicker in the nation. He is also an outstanding punter. Evan is impressive both on and off the field.

Nick Mihalic (2018, IL) – Nick was the biggest surprise of the camp and will reap the benefits from his strong performance. He is now the best available punting prospect in America and all recruiting attention will surely point in his direction.

Charles Campbell (2018, TN) – The Indiana commit and two time TOP 12 camp participant has climbed all the way up to the #3 spot in the nation, and rightfully so. One of the most liked participants at the camp, Charles is going to be a great fit in every way for Indiana.

Issac Power (2018, CO) – Issac earned the final TOP 12 selection for 2018 punters narrowly over Cade Pollard and Gabe Boring. His ability to step up and win competitions was the deciding factor. He is the #2 punter available in the country behind Mihalic.

Chris Dunn (2018, NC) – Chris is one of the most consistent performs in the United States without a doubt. He has more competition wins than anyone in the history of Chris Sailer Kicking. He is not always flashy, but he is nails under pressure. The NC State commit is a great one.

Derek Ng (2018, NV) – Derek is the real deal. The Vegas 30 Kicking Champion is a 5-Star Rated kicker and the new #6 ranked kicker in the America. He is absolutely outstanding on both field goal and kickoff. Derek is the top available kicker on the board.

Brayden Narveson (2018, AZ) – The Iowa State commit is an excellent talent and a very consistent performer. Brayden has been one of the fastest movers up the ranks in 2017. He has all the tools to succeed in the BIG 12.

Caleb Griffin (2018, IL) – Caleb was a dark horse coming into TOP 12. He is a tremendous athlete with endless potential. He held his own during day 1 and day 2 of competition and stepped it up during day 3. Caleb is the biggest sleeper in the class of 2018. He has made me a believer.

Will Reichard (2019, AL) – Will is the clear cut #1 ranked kicking prospect in the Class of 2019. He has been a student of Chris Sailer Kicking since the 6th grade and already holds a scholarship offer from LSU. He would be ranked inside the top 3 in American if he was in the Class of 2018, he is THAT good.

Porter Wilson (2019, OH) – Porter is the #1 ranked ranked punting prospect in the Class of 2019. He has a prototypical punting body and shows every sign of a big time future. There is no doubt that he is already a scholarship pick.

2017 IL Spring Camp Recap, Cooney Dominates!

With each camp we get closer and closer to Vegas 30.  Chicago, IL was the site of the 7th 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp.  So far over 700 specialists have competed in CA, NC, WA, TX, NJ, AZ and IL on the road to Vegas 30. This was bar the most impressed I’ve ever been with the talent and competition in the Midwest.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Michael Cooney (2018, IL) – The long time Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker is really starting to come into his own.  He proved that he was one of the very best at the camp from minute one.  He made it to the end of nearly every competition and came out on top on kickoff.  Michael is a confident kicker that kicks with great consistency.  He has 55 yard range on field goals off the ground.  His kickoffs average 65 yards with 4.0 hang time.  Michael is a D1 prospect that should challenge for a TOP 12 spot in Vegas!

Field Goal Champion
Devin Parker (2018, IL) – Devin did an outstanding job at his first Chris Sailer Kicking camp.  He is a great looking athlete with an explosive leg.  He won a major field goal competition with his consistency and ability to also hit from deep.  He has 50+ yard range and a D1 kickoff leg.  Devin also does very well under pressure.  Look for Devin to turn the heads of college coaches this summer.

Field Goal Champion
Bryce Hellgeth (2018, IL) – Bryce is a very talented athlete.  He has a great leg and excellent natural ability.  He stepped up to win the first major field goal competition by connecting on 7 straight field goals from 35 to 52 yards.  Many of these kicks were into a significant wind.  He also showed promise on kickoff.  Bryce has a great skill set and his best is still in front of him.  Look for Bryce continue to make a name for himself this spring and summer.  He is a strong prospect.

Punt Champion
Porter Wilson (2019, OH) – Porter is a big time punting talent.  A 6’5″, 210 pound athlete with unlimited potential.  He did an outstanding job the entire day averaging well over 45 yards, with 4.4 plus hang time.  He also hit several balls over 50 yards with 4.7 plus hang time.  Porter has the ideal D1 punting frame.  He is one of the best punting prospects I have seen in a few years.  Look for Porter to be the first punter in the Class of 2019 to pick up scholarship offers.  He will easily challenge for a TOP 12 spot this May in Vegas.

Top 2018 Prospect
Quentin Wallace (2018, IL) – The TOP 12’er proved exactly why he earned that honor at Vegas XXIX this past January.  The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student is a D1 scholarship level kicker without a doubt.  He hits a pure ball off the ground and has 55+ yard range.  He also has one of the best kickoff legs in the nation.  On this day he hit several balls over 65 yards with 4.1 plus hang time.  His best ball topped 4.2 seconds.  He is a big time competitor that is well on his way.

Class of 2018 College Prospects: Michael Cooney, Quentin Wallace, Dylan Williams, Eduardo Favela, Evan Price, Jacob Holous, Jake Rittman, Michael Bobak, Nathan Eccles, Nathaniel Rockwell, Stephen Ruiz, Andy Vujnovich, Nathan McRoberts, Adam Barry, Bryce Hellgeth, Devin Parker, Lucas White, Matthew Trickett, Milan Dezelich, Parker Blust, Sam Strange adn Kyle Romenick.
