2013 Underclassmen Group Shot


2013 NC & GA Nike Spring Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking finished off its Nike Spring Camp Tour with stops in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA this past weekend.  Hundreds of specialists were in attendance hoping to land on the national stage.  The atmosphere, skill level, and competition was as high as any other Spring Camp in the nation.  Kickers, Punters, and Long Snappers from over 13 states competed at the very popular 1-day Nike Camps.  Take a look at who stepped up and who you might be seeing play on future Saturdays and Sundays.

Charlotte, NC

Mick Ellis (2014 TX) – The 2 Time “TOP 12” Member was once again the best overall prospect in attendance.  He won both the field and kickoff competitions.  Mick was able to connect consistently from 55+ yards and kickoff 70+ yards with 4.0+ hang time.  He always steps up in competition and continues to prove that he will soon dominate on Saturdays as well.  Mick is a sure fire D1 Scholarship Kicker.

2014 Standouts:
Gregory Huegel (SC) – Gregory had a great day start to finish.  He excels at both field goals and kickoffs.  His fields goals are solid and very consistent up to 50+ yards off the ground.  His kickoffs are college ready.  Greg has a real shot at being a big time D1 player.

Destry Barnwell (NC) – Destry was the punt champion on this day.  The talented athlete averaged over 40 yards with 4.3+ hang time.  Destry continues to improve his game and is proving that he can punt at the college level.

Other 2014 Standouts: David Lamb, Patrick Woods, Tim Gawert, Topher Kline, and Tyler Cochran.

2015 Future Stars:
Cole Fisher (GA)  – Cole might just be the most talented young kicker in the nation in his class.  He is a great athlete, has a big leg, and handles pressure very well.  Look for Cole to be a future “TOP 12” Member and challenge for the #1 kicker in the nation.

Jackson VanSickle (NC) – Jackson continues to dominate competition.  A fine young athlete that kicks with excellent consistency.  Jackson has all the tools to be one of the very best in his class for years to come.

Other 2015 Standouts: Daniel Leonard, Dylan Baker, Evan Rabon, Luke Carter, Marion Watson, and Tyler Gallitz.

2016 Standouts: Brian Johnson and Jaxon Clark.

Atlanta, GA
Michael Santamaria (2014 GA) – The “TOP 12” Member stepped up and won perhaps the most competitive Nike Spring Camp of them all.  Michael is one of the top field goal kickers in the nation and his kickoffs aren’t far behind.  He does a great job of making kicks when they count the most.  Look for Michael to turn some heads this summer and impress college coaches across the nation.

Other 2014 Standouts:
Rafael Gaglianone (TN) – The Vegas Champion killed it all day once again.  Rafael is perhaps the very best field goal kicker in the nation.  He kicks with outstanding consistency and shows excellent range off the ground.  His kickoffs are also D1 ready.  Look for Rafael to pick up D1 offers in the near future.  Offer Now!!!

Marc Nolan (GA) – Marc was the most impressive punter in Atlanta.  He had a great day start to finish averaging over 40 yards with 4.4+ hang time.  What was most impressive about Marc was his consistency even in less than perfect conditions.  Marc has what it takes to punt at the D1 level.

Other 2014 Standouts: William Ham, Luke Hardin, Tyler Newsome, Thomas O’Leary, Timmy Hartshorn, Ty Wilson, Alex Spence, Anel Ramic, Avery Bass, Daniel DiRoberto, and Landon Borrow.

2015 Future Stars:
Jameson Vest (GA) – Jameson was the most impressive newcomer to Chris Sailer Kicking.  He is a great athlete with a big time leg.  He also stepped up well under pressure and won one of the major field goal competitions.  He has the talent to be a top national kicker in his class.

Matt Bonadies (GA) – Matt was once again exceptional.  He has a huge leg and impresses on both field goals and kickoffs.  Look for Matt to be a big time D1 recruit in the coming years.

Other 2015 Standouts: Trace Halpern, Blanton Creque, Shawn Davis, and Trey Blasingame.

The 2013 Chris Sailer Kicking Nike Spring Camp Tour has been a tremendous success.  Camp Champions Jordan Dascalo (CA), Hunter Morrow (TX), Mike Knoll (IL), Mick Ellis (NC) and Michael Santamaria are already getting huge attention in the recruiting world.  Up next, the biggest kicking, punting, and long snapping spring camp in the world…The 11th Annual National Kicking & Snapping Spring Event in Las Vegas May 4-5, 2013.
