5 Important Points for the Class of 2015

1.    You still have a long way to go with recruiting. Breathe, relax, take a chill pill. Bottom line, it is still early.  Less than 5% of national specialists have made their college choices.  Recruiting will go all the way through August.  Believe me.

2.    You should be attending every single Chris Sailer Kicking camp this spring that is near you (yes, VEGAS XXVI as well)….just like normal. Those that take their foot off the gas because “they are committed” end up really struggling as they enter college. Trust me, I have seen it hundreds of times. Nothing will piss off a coach more than recruiting a kid and he isn’t VERY ready when he steps on campus. (DO NOT THINK YOU SHOULD EVEN BE CONSIDERED ON MY STAFF UNTIL YOU HAVE PROVEN YOURSELF IN COLLEGE.)

3.    In the summer, you should attend the Chris Sailer Kicking College Camp for 4-year College Kickers/Punters to see how really compare to college Kickers/Punters.  Welcome to the real world my friends. This is the time to work harder than ever and prepare for your future.  Want to play in the NFL?  It begins NOW!

4.    Your time is now.  Be a leader.  Make a real name for yourself through dedication and hard work.  Don’t be the guy that future Kickers/Punters ask “What ever happened to ________ and why didn’t he ever pan out?”

5.    Be SMART and end your high school career strong. Be nice to everyone on the way out and be ready to move on.  Your past will effect your future at some point.

What Does a Graduating Kicker / Punter Do?

Say you are one of the lucky ones that will be playing football next year for a four year university, what do you do now?

You get better! You don’t rest on your laurels. You make sure you are as prepared as possible when entering college so the coaches know you are serious and ready to take over the reigns for the next two to four years of your life. Nothing will upset a coach more than a recruited athlete coming in unprepared. That is essentially your first impression to the new staff at your new school and that can easily set you up, in the wrong way, for years to come. Don’t be that guy!

Yes, you are allowed to, and could be attending my Kicking / Punting Camps from now until you report to camp for your school….and you should. Going to a camp right before you head off will polish off the rough edges, fine tune you and build your confidence.

You want a more advanced camp with only college level Kicker / Punters? You can attend the College Camp for Kickers / Punters on July 19-21 in CA. It will be structured just like the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp but with no current HS players. All participants will be either 2013/JC heading to a four year university or a current college Kicker / Punters already doing what you believe, think and hope you are ready for in a couple short months.

Regardless, be prepared and don’t just sit. You got into college, but you have done nothing there….yet. See you soon!
