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!

The road to Vegas XXV is in full swing.  Hundreds of specialists continue to prepare for the largest kicking, punting and long snapping camp in the world.  Chris Sailer Kicking was in Dallas, TX this past weekend for one of the biggest and most talented camps yet.  Once again well over 100 specialists from all over the country were in attendance at this very popular one day camp.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion – Kyler Terry (2015, TX)
Kyler had one of the most dominating performances at a Chris Sailer Kicking camp every on this day.  He won both major field goal competitions and was also the kickoff champion.  He nailed multiple field goals of 50 plus yards without missing a single kick during competition.  He put one kickoff through the uprights and several others deep into the endzone. He is big, tall, strong and athletic.  Kyler is a very talented prospect that could be a real sleeper in the Class of 2015.

Punt Champion  – Eric Kreitz (JC, CA)
Eric is a talented all around kicker / punter.  Primarily a kicker, he proved his all around ability in Dallas.  He hit several punts 50 plus yards with solid hang time.  Eric recently picked up an offer from Arkansas Pine Bluff and should see more recruiting action in the coming months.

Top Class of 2015 Prospect – Quinton Conaway (OK)
Quinton is a big time D1 prospect.  His field goals are outstanding off the ground, kickoffs are near the very top of his class and his punting is really coming along.  He has all the tools to make a big impact at any college.  Offer Now!

Other Class of 2015 Standouts: Ryan Rodriguez, Adam Nunez, Drew Klinghagen, Lucas Rizzotto, Omar Shalabi, Patrick LeCorre, Sam Jimenez, Tyler Flathau, Wyatt Clevenger, Jordan White, Julio De La Garza

Top Class of 2016 Prospect – Braden Mann (TX)
Braden continues solidify himself as one of the top players in the nation.  He has a big time leg and shows endless potential.  He is a D1 prospect as both a kicker and a punter.  Look for Braden to challenge for a “TOP 12” spot at Vegas XXV and land offers as early as this Spring.
