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?

I’m a Senior, What Should I Do In November?

5 Easy Tips For The Class of 2018 To Get Ahead In Recruiting – November

1. Stop panicking.  We are still very early in the recruiting process.  Less that 5% of the class of 2018 (K/P) have made college commitments.  Less than 10% of the class of 2018 (K/P) have been offered any sort of college opportunity.  Note, there are many waves of recruiting.  Recruiting will last all the way through August when fall camps officially begin for the upcoming college football season.

2. Take unofficial visits as often as possible.  An unofficial visit simply mean that you have to pay for the visit yourself.   Getting on campus is the best way to show a college football program genuine interest.  Sending emails, making phone calls, direct messaging on social media, etc. simply isn’t enough anymore.  A coach will know that you have a real interest once you make the effort to get on campus.

3. Start to narrow down your search to universities and colleges that are realistic options.  This includes level of football (FBS, FCS, D2, D3, NAII, JC, etc.), level of academics, region of the country, etc.  Stop targeting D1 football programs if you are not a D1 recruit.  Stop targeting high academic institutions if you have a 2.0 GPA.  Find schools that will reciprocate interest in you and opportunities will follow.

READ THIS BLOG ON HOW SCHOOLS RECRUIT

4. Ask for an opportunity, not a scholarship.  Every college coach in America knows that you would like to be offered a scholarship.  When you ask for a scholarship, this turns them off.  You are basically limiting communication opportunity.  When you ask for an opportunity to be on the team, coaches will be receptive.  You are opening a door for communication.  The goal in recruiting is to create options.  Offers of any kind, create buzz, which create more options.  Scholarship vs. Preferred Walk On offers will take care of itself in the end.

5. Get ready for XXXI (January 13-15, 2018).  The biggest mistake made these days is thinking that recruiting for seniors is already over by this time.  In fact, it is the exact opposite.  90% of Kickers / Punters in this class will be recruited heavily during this time of year.  It will be feeding frenzy.  National Letter of Intent Day (NLI) is in early February.  Vegas takes place this time of year for this reason.  College coaches pay a tremendous amount of attention to the Vegas results and post Vegas rankings.  Scholarships offers and preferred walk on opportunities will be won this weekend in Vegas.

Join us for the largest kicking, punting & long snapping camp in the world, Vegas!!!

2017 Underclassmen Invitational – The Future is Here!


The 2017 Underclassmen Invitational took place in Tampa, FL on July 20-21, 2017. Two hundred plus of the nation’s top Class of 2019, 2020 & 2021 specialists made their way to Florida for one of the most popular camps of the year. This camp has quickly become my second favorite camp of the year, just behind the TOP 12 Camp.

The two day camp is about much more than just kicking and punting. This camp is as much about the parents and families as it is about the athletes. The two days are filled with kicking, punting, educational meetings, game shows, meals and gatherings. The three major goals of camp are improvement on the field, improvement off the field and becoming one family… #TeamSailer #SailerFamily. This camp sets up athletes and their families for a bright future in the world of kicking and punting.

The Underclassmen Invitational featured 200+ specialists from nearly every state in the U.S. ranging from Hawaii to New York. The camp also hosted a few players from outside of the U.S from as far away as Australia. Nearly 400 parents also attended and majority of participants brought the entire family along. Take a look at a day by day breakdown.

Day 1

Field Session: Four hours of total field time (2 Groups) where athletes are separated by position and graduation year. Each athlete was put into a group of 10 or less with 2 of Chris Sailer Kicking’s best instructors including Aaron Perez, Erik Folk, Tristan Vizcaino, Andrew Gantz, Blanton Creque, Cole Murphy and many more. Drills, field goals, kickoffs, punting and evaluation was the focus.


College & Pro Demo: Nick Folk of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a special appearance to perform for the future of the sport. In the sprit of the Underclassmen Invitational he also brought along his 3-year old twin boys (they even attempted a few field goals). Folk, Vizcaino, Gantz, Creque, Murphy, Gonsoulin and more put on a show for the 500+ spectators.


Competition: At the end of each group session the athletes participated in a field goal last man standing competition. This is a famous Chris Sailer Kicking Competition that has challenged the best of the best for 17+ years of camps.

Class of 2019 Champion
Ryan Sanborn (CA) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking kicker/punter was stellar at all skills over the course of the two days. He won the field goal competition by connecting on 7-7 field goals with a long of 55 yards. Ryan continues to prove that he is a top national kicking and punting prospect. Ryan has a bright future with continued hard work.

Class of 2020 Champion
Tabor Allen (TX) – Tabor has been one of the most clutch performers in his class over the past few years. He is always at his best once it is time to compete. A great athlete that already kicks field goals off the ground. He went 6-6 on field goals with a long of 55 yards to win it. Even more impressive, he did it in rainy conditions toward the end of camp.

Class of 2021 Champion
David Kemp (KS) – David was clearly the standout performer in his class in Tampa. He is a fine young athlete with a big time leg. He kicks with nice technique and consistency. He also went 6-6 on on field goals with a long off 55 yards to win it. Look for David to be near the very top of the rankings with the Class of 2021 rankings are released this coming Fall.

Educational Meetings: Athletes and parents headed back to the hotel for two hours of educational meetings. Topics ranged from nutrition to training to social media to recruiting.

Game Show: The Kickers/Punters vs. Long Snappers Game Show has become one of the most popular Underclassmen Invitational traditions. This year, we decided to include the parents as well. After taking the crown in 2016, the Kickers/Punters were looking to go back-to-back. Unfortunately the Long Snappers came out on top. If you ask me, the questions were rigged ;). No worries, we will come back strong in 2018.

Family Dinner: Chris Sailer Kicking & Rubio Long Snapping hosted a massive dinner in the hotel ballroom where all were invited. Salads, Pastas, Meatballs, Breads and an assortment of drinks were served. The atmosphere was full of smiles and laughter and the conversations were about much more than just football. It is safe to say that the dinner was a huge hit.

Day 2

Field Session: This was Competition Day. Athletes checked-in in groups of four and were charted individually through a circuit of field goals, kickoffs and punts. Results will be posted in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

Competition: At the end of the charting session it was time for punters to compete in a head to head competition. Twenty three athletes qualified based on two days of evaluation. The intense competition put the punters head to head in a single elimination format.

Class of 2019 Champion
Austin McNamara (AZ) – The 6’4” punter stepped up when it counted the most. He punted several balls 40-50 yards with 4.3-4.7 hang time. In the end, he was able to edge out top prospects such as Ryan Sanborn and Ben Freehill with consistency. Austin has the tools to be a great college punter.

Class of 2020 Champion
Daniel Cristiani (IN) – Daniel did a great job over the course of the two days. This was his third camp with Chris Sailer Kicking and his hard work is paying off. Daniel is a talented athlete that has a bright future with continued hard work.

Q & A With Sailer & Rubio: Athletes and parents headed back to the hotel for a Question & Answer session. Questions were answered, pictures were taken and final goodbyes were said.

The 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking College Camp took place in Tampa, FL on July 14-16.  The athletes arrived from all over America on Friday and checked into the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza near the airport.  Saturday began with a 3 hour training session, followed by a 2 hour film breakdown session.  Athletes and staff headed to downtown Tampa for an evening of fun and relaxation.  Sunday kicked off with another 3 hour training session before the specialists returned to the hotel to pack up and head back to their colleges.

The weekend offered a great combination of training and comradery.  This camp was absolutely loaded with talent.  Specialists from the SEC, BIG 12, PAC 12, ACC & more were in attendance.  The competition was intense from start to finish.  Take a look at the results.

Day 2: Aidan Schneider (Kicker) & Michael Carrizosa (Punter)

STANDOUT KICKERS
Eddy Pineiro (Florida) – Eddy is an incredible talent that has NFL written all over him.  Look for Eddy to follow up a tremendous freshman year with another strong sophomore campaign.

Tristan Vizcaino (Washington) – Tristan may just be the most talented all around specialist in the nation.  His ability on field goal, kickoff and punt is off the charts.

Garrett Owens (Iowa State) – Garrett is primed for a huge 2017 season.  The transfer from Oregon State has great NFL ability and he is nails mentally.

Aidan Schneider (Oregon) – Aidan has put together one of the strongest field goals percentages in the history of college football over the past 3 seasons.  Expect greatness this season.

Blanton Creque (Louisville) – Blanton is as smooth and accurate as they come.  He hits a pure ball and has excellent range.  Blanton should be in the Lou Groza Award conversation by seasons end.

Andrew Gantz (Cincinnati) – Andrew is one of the best kicker in the nation.  Very smooth kicker that dominates under pressure.  Andrew should challenge the best in 2017.

Jack Gonsoulin (LSU) – Jack is a big time talent.  He hits an NFL level ball and does well under pressure.  Look for Jack to make some noise at LSU this year.

Cole Murphy (Syracuse) – Cole continues to make big strides.  He has great ability on both field goal and kickoff.  Look for Cole to have a big season this Fall.

Cole Tracy (Assumption) – Cole has proven himself during the season (7 FG’s in one game… twice) and proved himself once again at this camp against the big name college guys.  He is simply a great kicker.

Lorran Fonseca (Nichols State) – Lorran can kick with the best of them.  He hits a big time ball on both field goal and kickoff.  Look for Lorran to dominate this coming season.

Michael Carrizosa (San Jose State) – Michael is the real deal.  The former Ray Guy Award Finalist has the NFL in his sights.  He absolutely hammers the ball and punts with great consistency.

Shane Tripucka (Texas A&M) – Shane is a fantastic SEC punter.  He had a great 2016 and shows all the signs of building on that in 2017.  He has NFL ability.

Jacob De Maio (Weber State) – Jacob is a great punting talent.  He is big, tall and very strong.  He was excellent in 2016 and should be even better in 2017.
