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!!!

Be realistic with your choices and it will pay off. Genuine interest during the season is worth way more than mass emails. Call the football office and speak with a secretary to set up unofficial visits. Simply say that you are a recruit. It is VERY smart to plan these trips on a weekend when Chris Sailer Kicking is in town (see tip #4). Attend the game on Saturday. Attend the Chris Sailer Kicking camp on Sunday.

*** Note to those lucky few that are committed (Yes, I am talking to the TOP 12 from last year). The NFL Stars listed in tip #5 for juniors all attended this event as seniors as well. They didn’t rest. They continued to be hungry and dominate. That is why they are stars. The list of  TOP 12 K/P’s that decided to rest because they were already committed is much longer. And close to 0% of them made it to the NFL.

National Long Snapper Appreciation Day / Chris Sailer Kicking Contest

Chris Sailer Kicking introduces National Long Snapper Appreciation Day. Long Snappers are often the most under appreciated football players on the field. The saying goes, “You never know the long snappers name, unless they mess up” and “If you are a long snapper, it is your hope that the announcer never mentions your name. That just means you are doing your job well.”

I can tell you from first hand experience that a long snapper directly effects the success of kicker. In 1997, I earned All-American honors as both a kicker and punter while at UCLA. I never saw a bad snap and in fact never saw the laces of the football that year. My long snapper, yep you called it, was Chris Rubio. Our operation was flawless all year and making kicks became easy with that immense confidence that my long snapper would be perfect for me every time. Rubio never did get his All-American plaque that year. He also didn’t get to travel with me to Orlando, FL to be a part of the Home Depot ESPN Awards Show.

So…. after all these years, I have decided that it is time to thank my long snapper with the National Long Snapper Appreciation Day. I am inviting the Chris Sailer Kicking family to join me to celebrate our unsung heroes on November 1st starting in 2017 and continuing on each year from here on out.

Chris Sailer Kicking Contest – Due November 1st by midnight (Winner TBA November 2nd)

Post a picture, video, story, a combination of all of the above, etc. to your social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) showing your appreciation for your long snapper. Be creative and capture the meaning of long snapper appreciation. Tag Chris Sailer in your post. Also text (818-209-8921) or email (Chris@ChrisSailerKicking.com) your entry to Chris Sailer. The winner will receive FREE admission to Vegas XXXI January 13-14, 2018. If you are already registered for Vegas, you will receive FREE admission to any Chris Sailer Kicking camp of your choice in the future (Excluding TOP 12 Camp & Underclassmen Invitational).

The time has come. I believe this might actually quiet Rubio and his comments about kickers/punters down a bit. Or maybe not. Regardless, I cannot wait to see your entries. Good luck!
