Meet the Class of 2016 “TOP 12”

In 2003, Chris Sailer Kicking established the biggest kicking, punting, and long snapping camp the world had ever seen, The National Kicking Competition.  The camp brought in the best of the best from across the nation to compete at one location.  The camp established credible recruiting rankings and evaluations for kickers, punters, and long snappers that college coaches across the country would use for years to come.  The camp, now simply known as VEGAS takes place in Las Vegas each year in January.
Every athlete comes with one major goal in common, making the prestigious “TOP 12”.  This is THE exposure list to be on for national exposure.  The twelve best underclassmen in the nation are identified for the Kicking/Punting positions.  The best of the best are then invited to the exclusive, invite only, “TOP 12” camp that following summer.  College coaches take notice, and scholarships are awarded.

To get an idea for what the “TOP 12” is all about, take a look at some of the very best over the years:  Ryan Succop (South Carolina & Tennessee Titans), , Kai Forbath (UCLA & Lou Groza Award Winner, & Washington Redskin), Dan Bailey (Oklahoma State, Lou Groza Award Winner & Dallas Cowboys), & Randy Bullock (Texas A&M, Lou Groza Awards Winner, & Houston Texan), Bryan Anger (CAL & Jacksonville Jaguar), Brad Nortman (Wisconsin & Carolina Panters), Blair Walsh (Georgia & Minnesota Viking All-Pro), Justin Tucker (Texas, Baltimore Raven All-Pro & Super Bowl Champion), Jeff Locke (UCLA & Minnesota Viking), Cody Parkey (Auburn, Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro), Tress Way (Oklahoma & Washington Redskins) Just to name a few!

So far the “TOP 12″ has already made some serious noise.  Skyler Southam is committed to BYU on full scholarship.  Butch Hampton is committed to Western Michigan on full scholarship. Jonn Young has a full scholarship offer from West Virginia.  JJ Molson has a full scholarship offer from Arkansas State. Jet Toner, Kekoa Sasaoka, & JD Dellinger have offers from Army.  And many many more.

Meet the “TOP 12″ Class of 2016!
