Chris Sailer Kicking Featured Instructor – Obi

This week we want to start a new series where we feature our amazing instructors. This will allow you learn more about these young men and why they have been chosen to represent CSK nationwide.

First up, Chris Sailer Kicking Senior Instructor and crowd favorite, Obi Egekeze!

Chukwuemeka “Obi” Egekeze is a former place kicker. He has been on staff with Chris Sailer Kicking since 2005.

Egekeze was born Augusta, Georgia. He attended Westside High School in Augusta, where he was a three-year starter in football, basketball and soccer. A place kicker and punter for the school’s football team, he was selected as an all-state player as a senior. Egekeze maintained an exceptional GPA and was therefore recruited to play college football by several major universities (Georgia, Ohio State, Texas & Penn State). He ultimately accepted a scholarship to attend the University of Maryland.

He played college football for the University of Maryland for 2006 to 2008. He was the team’s starting placekicker in 2007 and 2008, scoring 164 points, kicking 32 field goals and converting 68 consecutive extra points without a miss during the 2007 and 2008 regular seasons. He ranks tenth in scoring in the 100-plus-year history of the Maryland Terrapins football program.  

Twice Obi was selected as an Academic All-ACC player. He received his undergraduate degree in finance in May 2008 and Egekeze also received his MBA at University of Illinois Urbana soon after.

Obi currently lives in Charlotte, NC with his Fiance. He is a Finance Manager at Lowe’s Companies INC. and tours the country Chris Sailer giving valuable instruction. He also offers private and group lessons throughout the year.
