CSK Veteran Justin Smith Wins the NC Summer Camp!

The Chris Sailer Kicking 2017 Summer Camp Tour continued with a stop in Charlotte, NC on July 9th.  There was a great mix of talented veterans and newcomers hoping to step up and come out on top of the competition.  All in all, over 100 specialists from over a dozen states were in attendance ready to learn and compete with the best.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion
Justin Smith (2018, OH) – Coming off a strong performance at FBU Top Gun, the longtime Chris Sailer Kicking didn’t miss a beat.  He was the kickoff champion on the day with his biggest ball totaling 68 yards with 4.21 hang time.  He was also very competitive in both field goal and punt competitions.  Just is proving he is ready for the next level.

Field Goal Champions

Camden Wise (2018, VA) – The TOP 12’er proved exactly why he earned that honor earlier this year.  He won the field goal competition by hitting 6 straight field goals including a final kick of 55 yards.  He was also outstanding on kickoffs and punts.  Camden is a confident kicker that kicks and punts with great confidence.  He is going to be a fine college kicker.

Holt Cloninger (2020, NC) – Holt became one of the few 2020 specialists to win a major competition this year.  The #2 ranked kicker in the nation has a big time leg and already competes with the seniors.  On this day he won the field goal competition by hitting 5 straight field goals including a long of 53.  He was also very strong on kickoff.

Punt Champion
Hunter Braswell (2019, NC) – Hunter stepped up when it counted the most in Charlotte.  A top 2019 kicker, Hunter proved that he is also a very capable punter.  He averaged nearly 40 yards, with 4.3+ hang time.  The lefty has the ability to develop into a top national combo prospect.  Keep a close eye on this talented prospect.

George Triplett Wins It All in Pittsburgh!

The Chris Sailer Kicking Fall Camp Circuit is now in full swing.  The most recent camp took place this past Sunday in Pittsburgh, PA.  Specialists from several east coast states were in attendance to get instruction and compete.  The level of talent was strong in all age levels.  There was also a solid mix of Chris Sailer Kicking newcomers and veterans.  Take a look at the results….

img_1973Overall Camp Champion
George Triplett
(2018, WV) – The Chris Sailer Kicking veteran had an extremely impressive performance from start to finish.  He excels in all three areas of the game and proved it on this day.  He won a major field goal competition and also came out on top on kickoffs.  He has 50+ yard range on field goals, averages 65 yards on kickoffs with 3.75 hang time and consistently punts with a 40+ yard average and 4.4+ hang time.  George is going to be a fine college level player.

Field Goal Champion
Gavin Costello (2018, OH) – Gavin has only been kicking for 6 weeks.  After a few lessons with Chris Sailer Kicking instructor Drew Basil, he was ready to go in Pittsburgh.  He is a naturally gifted athlete with a very strong leg.  He nailed 6 consecutive field goals ranging from 30 to 53 yards to win the competition.  Gavin has only scratched the surface of what he is capable of.  The future is bright with continued hard work.

Punt Champion
Koby Keifer (2018, WV) – Koby was one of the most impressive overall performers on the day.  He is an excellent combo (K/P) prospect.  On this day he came out on top in the punting competition by consistently hitting balls 45+ yards with 4.4+ second hang time.  He was also strong on field goals, showing 50+ yard range and kickoffs, driving the ball deep into the end zone.  Look for Koby to compete with the best in his class this coming January in Las Vegas.

TOP 2018 Prospects
Justin Smith (2018, OH) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking specialist continues to improve at an impressive rate.  Coming off an excellent showing in Chicago last month, he backed it up with another strong performance in Pittsburgh.  He was a finalist in nearly every competition and could have easily won it.

Zach Sterr (2018, NJ) – Zach had perhaps the strongest leg at the entire camp.  He has attended several Chris Sailer Kicking camps and continues to improve each time we see him.  He shows D1 potential in all 3 areas (FG, KO & Punt).  Great things lie ahead for Zach with continued hard work.
