Announcing Virtual RANKING Evaluations – NOW OPEN

For the first time ever Chris Sailer and Chris Sailer Kicking will be offering the opportunity get ranked on ChrisSailerKicking.com via an innovative virtual evaluation process. I have spoken with 60+ college coaches over the past several weeks gathering information during these trying times. With Vegas XXXV being postponed, College Camps being cancelled and an uncertain future… now is the time to take things into our own hands. College coaches are hesitant to recruit without new information (evaluations). Rankings have been stagnant for months. Chris Sailer Kicking will be the first to offer exactly what our athletes and college coaches need!


We are currently in PHASE 2 of the Virtual Ranking Evaluations. This will be an in depth evaluation from start to finish to ensure that each athlete is gaining a valuable exposure opportunity during these difficult times.

PHASE THREE will open up once PHASE TWO is complete. PHASE THREE will offer this same opportunity up to many more of our athletes.

Chris Sailer will be working directly with each Kicker or Punter and their parents. The evaluation and ranking during PHASE ONE will include five Stages.

Stage 1: Phone Consultation
Stage 2: Video Submission / Evaluation
Stage 3: Follow Up Phone Call
Stage 4: Ranking on ChrisSailerKicking.com by Chris Sailer

The new rankings will also be used to determine who will be selected to participate in the TOP 12 Camp. Chris Sailer will be selecting 20 more Kickers and Punters to join those that were already selected at Vegas XXXV.

Who will be added to this list? Rankings will determine who gets invited next!

I am excited to offer this unique opportunity. Remember, this is only open to the first TEN athletes to register on a first come, first serve basis. GO TIME!

2020 TX Spring Punters Only Camp Recap – Connor Dailey Wins The Inaugural Punting Camp!

The first PuntFactory Punters Only Camp took place this past weekend on March 8th in Dallas, Texas. In association with Chris Sailer Kicking, the camp took place at LD Bell High School, and was ran by Aaron Perez, the National Director of Punting of CSK. The PuntFactory will run camps in Dallas, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Atlanta & Chicago this Spring in its first wave of camps in 2020!

Aaron Perez leading the way in TX

This camp series, designed specifically for the development of both punters and combo players looking to improve their punting, is the first camp in the country for only punting! Here is a recap of the day.

Overall Camp Champion – Connor Dailey (2021, TX)
Connor had a great, consistent day punting the football. During the morning training portion of camp, Dailey was very consistent and smooth punting with a very stiff & strong wind present throughout the session. His directional punting was on point hitting several balls 40+ yards, with 4.5 seconds of hang both directional right and directional left into the wind.
However, it was his performance in the afternoon competitions and charting sessions that set Dailey apart. Connor won the Head to Head bracket competition, and during this competition he hit some of his best punts of the day, with several punts traveling 50+ yards and well over 4.5 – 4.6 seconds of hangtime. Connor’s best punt from the charting session was 59 yards with 4.8 seconds of hangtime. Overall a great day for this talented athlete!

Last Man Standing Winner – Jack McCallister (2021, WA)
The long time Chris Sailer Kicking combo player won the last man standing competition and was extremely solid and consistent all day. Jack is a big, strong punter who flew down to Texas all the way from Washington! In the morning training session, Jack punted very well directionally and into the wind. His best punts went 42-45 yards with over 4.4 seconds of hang time. In the afternoon during the charting phase, Jack hit several balls 50+ yards and over 4.3 seconds of hangtime, with his best punt going 56 yards with 4.4 seconds of hangtime. A truly solid, consistent day for this young man.

Class of 2023 Standouts: Tyler White
Class of 2022 Standouts: Brooke Honore, Kai Todd, Carter Brown, Connor Nolan, Nick Conforti
Class of 2021 Standouts: Connor Dailey, Jack McCallister, Jake Gaster, Tyson Giles, Jonathan Dilam

The PuntFactory Spring Camp Series is scheduled to go to Los Angeles, CA on April 5th.

Seattle, WA & San Francisco, CA Spring Camps – POSTPONED


The scheduled Spring Camps in SEATTLE, WA on March 15, 2020 and SAN FRANCISCO, CA on March 22, 2020 are postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

Large gatherings are high on the list of things to avoid as this global health crisis is now beginning to affect all of our lives. Unfortunately, communing in large groups is a huge part of what we do as a company.

Due to multiple school closures/ venue changes, we worked hard over the past 24 hours and secured a venue outside of Seattle proper, but ultimately the levels of risk to our athletes, their families and their communities were simply too high for our comfort level. On top of that, we also have a unique business where families travel far and wide to attend our events and right now travel is something to avoid.

As a dedicated small business, we will be in touch as soon as we have any details for the future dates and locations of the Seattle and San Francisco camps.

All other Chris Sailer Kicking 2020 Spring camps and events will take place as scheduled.


All paid registration fees will be honored for the new dates – See you there!

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Admin. Coordinator, Samantha, at Samantha@ChrisSailerKicking.com

See you soon!

2020 NC & GA Spring Camp Recap – McFerson & Britton Step Up!

The 2020 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp Tour is officially underway. Over 1000 athletes will participate in camps in So. Cal, NC, GA, WA, TX, IL, Nor Cal, MA & NV. The road all leads to the most popular specialist camp in the world… Vegas XXXVI (May 9-10, 2020).

Stops were made in Charlotte, NC & Atlanta, GA March 7th and 8th. The talent was off the charts. Take a look at the results…

Overall Camp Champions

Charlotte, NC
Bryce McFerson (2022, NC)
Bryce is a fantastic high school punting and kicking prospect. On this day he came through winning the punting competition. Bryce easily averages 40+ yards with 4.4+ hang time. He also shows that he can hit 50+ yard punts with 4.75+ hang time. He is currently ranked the #1 Punter in the Class of 2022 and should continue to battle for that spot the next few years. Bryce is also an excellent kicker. He is a top combo prospect without a doubt.

Atlanta, GA
Anderson Britton (2022, GA)
Anderson is an excellent up and coming kicking prospect. He is a great looking athlete with a bright future. He won the Field Goal Competition by going 7-8 including kicks of 35, 40, 45, 50, 52, 55 and 56 yards. Anderson is also a top kickoff specialist. He drives the ball into the end zone consistently with solid hang time. Anderson is a competitor that thrives under pressure. Big things ahead.

Competition Champions

Charlotte, NC
Field Goal & Kickoff ChampionDamian Ramos (2021, MD)
The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student had his best camp performance yet. Damian won both the Field Goal and Kickoff Competitions beating out an incredible field of talent. He went 7-8 on field goal with a long of 59 yards. His kickoffs averaged 65+ yards, with 3.8+ hang time. Damian is hitting stride during a crucial time in recruiting. Look for him to continue this strong run at Vegas XXXVI in May. He should challenge for a TOP 12 Spot.

Damian Ramos & Bryce McFerson

Atlanta, GA
Kickoff & Punting Champion – Connor Weselman (2021, GA)
Connor was absolutely dominant at his first Chris Sailer Kicking camp. The 6’4”, 190 pound athlete is a phenomenal all around D1 prospect.
