2016 TX Spring Camp, Freshman Will Reichard Wins It!

The 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp Tour got off to a great start in Dallas, TX this past weekend.  Well over 100 athletes from 10 plus states were in attendance.  The camp featured long time Chris Sailer Kicking kicker and staff member Nick Folk of the New York Jets.  He gave a fantastic demonstration and stood in on all the meetings offering priceless advice.  The mixture of outstanding veterans and talented newcomers at the camp made for excellent competition.  Take a look at the results.

Camp Champion: Will Reichard (2019, AL)
The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student came through with a breakthrough performance.  The #1 kicker in the nation in the Class of 2019 proved why in a major way.  He is the first freshman to win a regional camp in many years.  He hit multiple 50 plus yard field goals and his kickoffs were all 65 plus yards with 3.8 plus hang time.  He is an extraordinary talent.  One of the very best that I have seen at this age since Cody Parkey, now of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Field Goal Champion: Austin Neuhauser (2017, OK)
Austin put in an impressive performance in Dallas.  He was also a standout last month in Las Vegas.  Austin is proving he is a top national prospect in the Class of 2017.  He hits a pure ball off the ground and shows 55+ yard range.  His kickoffs are also competitive with the very best.  Look for Austin to gain the attention of major college coaches around the nation this off season.

Kickoff Champion: Davis Price (2016, CO)
Another long time Chris Sailer Kicking student was dominant on kickoffs all day.  He won the competition by hitting a 76 yard, 4.08 hang time kickoff.  He has really come into his own and is ready to move on to the college level.  He has the talent to compete at any level.

Punt Champion: Bernardo Palacios (2017, TX)
This was Bernardo’s first camp with us, but he stepped up when it counted the most.  He consistently hit 40 plus yard punts, with 4.4 plus yard hang time.  He is a talented athlete that shows the ability to compete with the top punters in his class.  Keep a close eye on him this spring and summer.
