Chris Sailer played high school football for Notre Dame Sherman Oaks High School in California from 1992-1994. In 1994 he set the then all time national record for field goals made in a season with 22. That record still stood until 2011 (Cole Hedlund 25) 7 of those 22 field goals came from 50+ yards, including a long of 58. He helped his team to a CIF championship along the way. His historical high school career landed him a full ride scholarship to UCLA where he went on to be a two-time All-American.
