2016 GA Fall Camp Recap – Vicente Wins It!

The 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking Fall Camp Tour concluded that past weekend with a final stop in Atlanta, GA.  Once again well over 100 specialists were in attendance representing over a dozen states.  The talent at this camp never disappoints.  Many of these athletes will be in the hunt for a TOP 12 spot this coming January in Las Vegas.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Gabriel Vicente (TR, FL) – The first time Chris Sailer Kicking student put in an impressive first performance, defeating many of the top national kicking prospect for the victory.  He stepped up when it counted the most and won a major field goal competition by nailing 6-7 of field goals in including a long of 54 yards.  He then swept through the semi-finals and finals round without missing a kick.  Gabriel is a talented transfer student who has the talent to challenge at any level.

Field Goal Champion
Jake Lane (2017, AL) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and Event Elite Member had another strong day from start to finish.  Coming off a season where he went 22-26 on field goals and recently being named a Sailer Award Finalist, he stepped up once again.  He went over 80% on the day and showed off his big leg by nailing several 50+ yard field goals.  He was also outstanding on both kickoff and punt.  Jake is ready for the next level.

Kickoff Champion
BT Potter (2018, SC) – BT was quite possibly the most talented kicker at the entire camp.  He is a great athlete with elite leg strength.  BT hit several field goals of 50+ yards off the ground and kicked with nice consistency.  He also dominated kickoffs all day long, winning the competition with a 70 yard, 4.00 second kick in less than perfect conditions.  He is also proving to be a capable punter.  BT is a top national prospect that will challenge for a TOP 12 spot this coming January in Las Vegas.

Punt Champion
Taylor Goettie (2017, GA) – Taylor put on a phenomenal performance from start to finish.  He proved he was easily the best punter at camp and dominated all punting competitions.  He is a great athlete with a big time leg.  He averaged well over 45 yards all day and hit some 60+ yard bombs.  Taylor punts for tremendous distance and shows flashes of great hang time.  He is a gifted recruit that could be a great steal in this recruiting class.  Look for Taylor to turn the heads of college coaches in Vegas.
