So You Didn’t Make TOP 12, Now What?

For the past few weeks, you have been waiting anxiously to see if you were going to be selected to the TOP 12 Camp. When the first 20 selections were announced, 20 Kickers / Punters were ecstatic. Hundreds of others were upset, frustrated, angry, etc…. rightfully so. As athletes and competitors the desire to succeed should run deep.

Couple ways to look at it….

You can be upset with me for not selecting you. You can be upset with yourself for not performing when it counted. You can even find a way to blame others, but, it is ultimately on you. The only thing you can control is how hard and smart you work moving forward. Everyone in Vegas is competing for the same spots. Don’t let anybody outwork you and you will see different results.

You need to use this as motivation to make sure you perform better. This is all up to you. The choice is yours.

If you are a Kicker / Punter that strives to be the best, you want to be at that TOP 12 camp this summer. Any single athlete that has been there (scholarship Kickers / Punters, All-Americans, NFL players) will tell you that it is, by far, the best camp they have ever been to in their life. What you need to do is get back on the horse. Work smarter and harder. Your opportunity is waiting for you in the form of VEGAS XXXVI.

At Vegas XXXVI, I will choose 20 additional TOP 12 Camp Invitees.  They will join the first 20 selected at the Invite Only TOP 12 Camp this summer.   This is a true invite only camp. I do NOT just hand out invites to get people to come to it. That would give me no credibility. I select the best because they are the best. They will represent the TOP 12 fraternity and Chris Sailer Kicking for life.

Are you one of them? Time to decide. Prove to me, and the rest of the world, that you belong.

Or don’t. THE CHOICE IS YOURS…..

TOP 12 Camp Alumni…
Justin Tucker (Baltimore Ravens)
Ka’imi Fairbairn (Houston Texans)
Bryan Anger (Houston Texans)
Kai Forbath (Dallas Cowboys)
Dan Bailey (Minnesota Vikings)
Tress Way (Washington Redskins)
Dustin Hopkins (Redskins)
Nick Folk (New England Patriots)
JK Scott (Green Bay Packers)
Logan Cooke (Jacksonville Jaguars)
Randy Bullock (Cincinnati Bengals)
Ty Long (San Diego Chargers)
Cody Parkey (Tennessee Titans)
Ryan Succop (Tennessee Titans)
