2018 NC Spring Camp Recap – Nolan Parris Steps Up!

The road to Vegas XXXII is hitting stride as athletes from around the nation are preparing. The most recent camp on the 2018 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp Tour took place in Charlotte on March 11th. North Carolina has become a hotbed for kickers, punters & long snappers over the past decade. Camden Lewis, Ben Kiernan & Evan Davis ‭of NC have already earned invitations to the TOP 12 Camp and many others will have a real shot coming up in Las Vegas this May. Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Nolan Parris (2019, NC) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student is really starting to come into his own. He shows great ability in all 3 skills (field goal, kickoff & punt). On this day he won the field goal completion by staying smooth and consistent all day and showing he had 50+ yard range off the ground. Nolan is a fantastic prospect that should dominate Vegas XXXII and challenge for a TOP 12 spot.

Kickoff Champion
George Georgopoulos (2018, SC) – George has had a tremendous run with Chris Sailer Kicking over the past 6 months. He was the Kickoff Champion at the 2017 NC Fall Camp. He followed that up by winning the overall Punt Championship at Vegas XXXI. Then signed a full scholarship with UMASS as a much deserved reward for his performances and abilities. He dominated kickoffs once again in NC and continues to prove that he will be special at the next level.

Punt Champion
Jonn Young (Transfer, NC) – Jonn is a punter that is transferring from West Virginia where he was on full scholarship. He still has 4 to play 4 and should be eligible immediately. The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and former TOP 12’er & Vegas Punt Champion is a fantastic prospect. He is the compete package as a punter. His hands and footwork are clean, he is a smooth and consistent performer, he can directional punt with ease & he shows the ability to hit a big ball. He will make a fine addition to any college football program.

    As a parent of a younger athlete (2021 graduate) I thought the parent information session was really well done. It gave, I felt, a very realistic path to follow when it comes to how to help my son get to where he wants to be! We survived the all day rain, and expect to be back at one of your camps again soon!
