2020 TX Spring Punters Only Camp Recap – Connor Dailey Wins The Inaugural Punting Camp!

The first PuntFactory Punters Only Camp took place this past weekend on March 8th in Dallas, Texas. In association with Chris Sailer Kicking, the camp took place at LD Bell High School, and was ran by Aaron Perez, the National Director of Punting of CSK. The PuntFactory will run camps in Dallas, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Atlanta & Chicago this Spring in its first wave of camps in 2020!

Aaron Perez leading the way in TX

This camp series, designed specifically for the development of both punters and combo players looking to improve their punting, is the first camp in the country for only punting! Here is a recap of the day.

Overall Camp Champion – Connor Dailey (2021, TX)
Connor had a great, consistent day punting the football. During the morning training portion of camp, Dailey was very consistent and smooth punting with a very stiff & strong wind present throughout the session. His directional punting was on point hitting several balls 40+ yards, with 4.5 seconds of hang both directional right and directional left into the wind.
However, it was his performance in the afternoon competitions and charting sessions that set Dailey apart. Connor won the Head to Head bracket competition, and during this competition he hit some of his best punts of the day, with several punts traveling 50+ yards and well over 4.5 – 4.6 seconds of hangtime. Connor’s best punt from the charting session was 59 yards with 4.8 seconds of hangtime. Overall a great day for this talented athlete!

Last Man Standing Winner – Jack McCallister (2021, WA)
The long time Chris Sailer Kicking combo player won the last man standing competition and was extremely solid and consistent all day. Jack is a big, strong punter who flew down to Texas all the way from Washington! In the morning training session, Jack punted very well directionally and into the wind. His best punts went 42-45 yards with over 4.4 seconds of hang time. In the afternoon during the charting phase, Jack hit several balls 50+ yards and over 4.3 seconds of hangtime, with his best punt going 56 yards with 4.4 seconds of hangtime. A truly solid, consistent day for this young man.

Class of 2023 Standouts: Tyler White
Class of 2022 Standouts: Brooke Honore, Kai Todd, Carter Brown, Connor Nolan, Nick Conforti
Class of 2021 Standouts: Connor Dailey, Jack McCallister, Jake Gaster, Tyson Giles, Jonathan Dilam

He also shows that he can hit 50+ yard punts with 4.75+ hang time. He is currently ranked the #1 Punter in the Class of 2022 and should continue to battle for that spot the next few years. Bryce is also an excellent kicker. He is a top combo prospect without a doubt.

Atlanta, GA
Anderson Britton (2022, GA)
Anderson is an excellent up and coming kicking prospect. He is a great looking athlete with a bright future. He won the Field Goal Competition by going 7-8 including kicks of 35, 40, 45, 50, 52, 55 and 56 yards. Anderson is also a top kickoff specialist. He drives the ball into the end zone consistently with solid hang time. Anderson is a competitor that thrives under pressure. Big things ahead.

2020 CA Spring Recap – Ricardo Chavez Wins It!

The 2020 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp Tour is officially underway. Over 1000 athletes will participate in camps in So. Cal, NC, GA, WA, TX, IL, Nor Cal, MA & NV. The road all leads to the most popular specialist camp in the world.. Vegas XXXVI (May 9-10).

The first stop of the tour took place in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday March 1st. Take a look at the results…

Overall Camp Champion – Ricardo Chavez (JC, CA)
Ricardo was impressive from start to finish. The 1st year JC prospect showed great promise as both a Kicker and Punter. He won the Punt competition by averaging 40+ yards, with 4.4+ hang time. Ricardo was smooth and accurate on field goal. His kickoffs are college ready. Look for Ricardo to dominate Vegas XXXVI in May. He has a bright future.

Ricardo Chavez is a Junior College Class of 2021 Prospect.

Field Goal ChampionJosh Bryan (2021, CA)
The #1 Kicker in the nation continues to prove his dominance. The 3-Time TOP 12 Camp Invitee is special. He won the field goal competition by connecting from 35, 40, 45, 48, 51, 56 and 60 yards. His kickoffs are D1 ready. Josh is also a more than capable Punter. Look for Josh to dominate the 2020 off season picking up multiple scholarship offers.

Kickoff Champion – Denis Lynch (2021, CA)
The first time Chris Sailer Kicking student made a fantastic first impression. He has a big time leg and endless potential. Denis won the kickoff competition by consistently putting the ball in the back of the endzone with 3.7+ hang time. The lefty also showed great range on field goal. I look forward to helping this excellent prospect develop his game. Denis should challenge for a TOP 12 Spot at Vegas XXXVI.

Competition Champions: Denis Lynch (KO), Ricardo Chavez (Punt) & Josh Bryan (FG)

Class of 2021 Standouts: Ricardo Chavez, Josh Bryan, Denis Lynch, Andre, Meono, Abiel Lepe, Dane Voorhees, Bryan Ryks, Gabriel Chavers, Gavin Dalziel, Ian Hawkins, Ivan Shuran, Jack McCallister, Justin Sampson, Richie Brutto, Kevin Ryan, Luke Caufield, Xander Broschetti.

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.

2021 TOP 12 (1st 20) *in alphabetical order
Bert Auburn (TX)
Cole Becker (CA)
Daniel Bethel (TN)
Josh Bryan (CA)
Caden Costa (LA)
Matthew Dennis (NC)

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…..

Chris Sailer Kicking Featured Instructor – Erik Folk

This is our sixth week of a new series where we feature our amazing instructors. This will allow you learn more about these young men and why they have been chosen to represent CSK nationwide.

Week 6: Chris Sailer Kicking Senior Instructor, Erik Folk!

Erik Folk is a former placekicker. He has been on staff with Chris Sailer Kicking since 2003.

Folk attended Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, CA. He helped them to a 11-1 record and a Serra League championship as a senior in 2006. Folk’s team finished as the No. 6 team in the state, according to MaxPreps. He was named second-team all-area kicker, CalHiSports all-state third team, PrepStar all-region selection, booted 53-of-53 PATS and seven field goals as a senior, kicked a 56-yarder in 2006. He also kicked a 50-yarder in the 2055 season and was ranked No. 1 in state.

After high school, Folk played for the University of Washington. He is most remembered for kicking game-winning field goals to beat USC in 2009 and 2010. During the 2009 season, it was Folk’s 22-yarder with three seconds to play that made the difference in a 16-13 upset win over No. 3 USC.

Folk repeated his last-second heroics against No. 18 USC the following year, hitting a 32-yard game-winning field goal. He was named Pac-10 Special Teams player of the week on October 4, 2010.

After college, Folk was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Falcons, but was released before the regular season.

Folk currently lives in Los Angeles, CA. He works the California camps and Las Vegas National Events with Chris Sailer giving valuable instruction.

He offers private and group lessons throughout the year for aspiring kickers and punters in Southern California.

Dante Jackson (CA, 2020) Dante absolutely crushed it all day with a clean sweep of all 3 kicking competitions. Dante went 8 for 8 in charting, won the last man standing competition with a 52 yarder. His Kickoffs were all 68-70 yards with a very consistent hang of 3.8 plus. Dante made a statement in Northern California and showed why he is one of the most talented kickers in his class! 

Dante Jackson & Fabien Guillen

Punt Champion 

Fabien Guillen (CA, 2020) – Fabien won both punting competitions on the day and was a model of consistency all day. Fabien got several balls 50+ with over 4.5 seconds of hang, picking up where he left off from the Los Angeles camp earlier this Fall. He was solid directionally all day and showed great control and composure in all of the technical work. Winning both punt competitions does not happen often, but it goes to show the caliber of day Fabien had. Looking forward to Vegas XXXV, Fabien should once again be in the mix to go deep into the finals!
