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.

Chris Sailer Kicking Featured Instructor – Obi

This week we want to start 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.

First up, Chris Sailer Kicking Senior Instructor and crowd favorite, Obi Egekeze!

Chukwuemeka “Obi” Egekeze is a former place kicker. He has been on staff with Chris Sailer Kicking since 2005.

Egekeze was born Augusta, Georgia. He attended Westside High School in Augusta, where he was a three-year starter in football, basketball and soccer. A place kicker and punter for the school’s football team, he was selected as an all-state player as a senior. Egekeze maintained an exceptional GPA and was therefore recruited to play college football by several major universities (Georgia, Ohio State, Texas & Penn State). He ultimately accepted a scholarship to attend the University of Maryland.

He played college football for the University of Maryland for 2006 to 2008. He was the team’s starting placekicker in 2007 and 2008, scoring 164 points, kicking 32 field goals and converting 68 consecutive extra points without a miss during the 2007 and 2008 regular seasons. He ranks tenth in scoring in the 100-plus-year history of the Maryland Terrapins football program.  

Twice Obi was selected as an Academic All-ACC player. He received his undergraduate degree in finance in May 2008 and Egekeze also received his MBA at University of Illinois Urbana soon after.

Obi currently lives in Charlotte, NC with his Fiance. He is a Finance Manager at Lowe’s Companies INC. and tours the country Chris Sailer giving valuable instruction. He also offers private and group lessons throughout the year.

For lessons and instruction with Obi, please contact him (706) 627-5111.

2016 Rankings Complete Post Vegas XXVII, Rankings Explained

The Class of 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking rankings are now completely updated post Vegas XXVII.  NLOI Day (National Letter Of Intent) is coming up February 3rd.  Vegas results and rankings have already made a major impact on college recruitment.  Chris Sailer Kicking now has 40, 5-Star Rated Kickers and 22, 5-Star Rated Punters.  This is an all time record.  These rankings are ratings are 100% earned and not simply given.  Over 800 Specialists are now ranked in the class of 2016.  Things have just begun.  Some have made commitments, while the vast majority still wait to see their final college destinations.  Remember recruiting goes all the way up and through August.

2016 RANKINGS – CLICK HERE

Up next, Class of 2017 Rankings.  Stay Tuned….

Here is a detailed explanation of how Chris Sailer Kicking Rankings are compiled.

1. We will only rank a player that we have seen IN PERSON.  Film is great, but it does not compare to an in person evaluation.  An in person evaluation can be at a private lesson, group lesson, camp, or national event run by Chris Sailer Kicking. College camps are NOT taken into consideration. The evaluation must and will only be done by Chris Sailer (Kickers / Punters) and Chris Rubio (Long Snappers) and staff.  We do not use anyone outside of the company for evaluations.  This is the only way we can assure 100% accuracy.

2. We do not rank all players that we see.  We only rank players that we feel show the ability or potential to one day compete at the college level.  We take effort, work ethic, and attitude into consideration when determining if a player meets the above criteria.

3.  Our rankings are subjective, not objective.  We focus on our evaluation, not just stats.  Stats may be misleading.  We are the professionals at what we do.  Our rankings will take the following criteria into consideration: 1. Current Skill Level, 2. Potential Skill Level, 3. Performance Under Pressure.  We look for the following: technique, strength, leg speed, athleticism, mental toughness, competitiveness, confidence, tee sizes to name a few.

4. The ranking system is as follows.  After every camp, we evaluate each player.  They are then added to or adjusted on the PLAYER RANKINGS site of Chris Sailer Kicking.com

Star Rating System:
5 Stars: D1 Scholarship Player
4 1/2 Stars: D1 Talent (D1 Preferred Walk-On or possible D1 Scholarship Player)
4 Stars: D2 Talent (D2 Scholarship or Possible D1 Preferred Walk-On)
3 1/2 Stars:  D3 Talent (D3 Scholarship or Possible D2 or D1AA Preferred Walk-On)
3 Stars: D3 Talent (D3 Preferred Walk-On)

Number Ranking System:
Will list the exact number rank of the player from (#1 through #……)  #1 being the very best in the nation, and so on.

The Star Rating and the Number Ranking is an evaluation based on that day.  So, younger players usually do not receive 4 and 5 star rankings yet.  Older players earn the higher rating as they begin to show more of the criteria necessary to be considered a college prospect.  Rankings change on a daily basis.  You can always improve your rank the next time we see you.

*Understand, rankings are not complete until fall camp begins your freshman year of college.  We will see new players constantly and the rankings will constantly be updated.  You have to work to maintain or increase your ranking.  You are only as good as the last time we saw you.  We cannot predict the future.  You will see that we will now list (Student Since: – to show when we first evaluated a player & Last Evaluation: – to show the last time we evaluated that player).  These pieces of information will help both the players and college coaches better understand the accuracy of the rating and ranking.

5.  Once a player is ranked you are in our system until you begin your fall camp as a freshman in college.  You will never be dropped in the rankings.  However as we see new players or current players improve their ranking, you will slide naturally.  Again rankings are not complete until fall camp begins your freshman year of college.  That is when the rankings are as accurate as can be and are removed from the website.  You can increase your ranking by attending any future lesson, camp, or event.  A rating and ranking becomes much more accurate the more often we see a player.  We see improvement, we get to know a player mentally, and the player generally becomes much better physically and technically.  A college coach will always ask the question, “How many times have you worked with him?”  Why?  Because he wants to be sure that our evaluation is accurate and not a fluke.  He wants to be sure that we know that player mentally as well as possible before a large scholarship investment is made by the University.   Certain players are phenoms and earn 5 star rankings right off the bat.  It is just a no brainer.  But most must work hard to establish consistency and improvement over time.  Our confidence in you as a player is a BIG DEAL.  We have to know who and what it is we are recommending.

6. Once a player is ranked, we do take season stats into consideration.  Because there are so many factors out of your control at the high school level (coach, opportunities, snapper, holder, field condition, etc.) most players never get the chance to put up big numbers – this will not hurt you.  Both we and college coaches understand this.  But, if you happen to be fortunate enough to put up great stats, this can help you.  We don’t put a huge amount of stock in your season stats, but a good season can definitely help prove that you are consistent over time and that you can perform well under pressure.

7.  Vegas statistics.  Yes, they are great as they give us all something to look at.  However, they are NOT the only factor we take into consideration when updating the rankings.  They are a small piece of the puzzle (see above #’s 1-7).  Please do not just look at the stats and send us a spreadsheet as to why you should be ranked ahead of someone else.  I promise you, we do a thorough evaluation that looks at all your kicks from both Saturday and Sunday.  And we take into consideration past camp performances.  A bad statistical day isn’t going to effect the great statistical days that a player may have had in the past.  The statistics from Vegas are big for many reasons, but please remember that we look at EVERYTHING.

8.  The Kicking and Punting Rankings are completely separate.  One does not effect the other and vice versa.  However doing well in both is always a positive for college coaches.  Combo players are rare and are a hot commodity.

Chris Rubio and myself are very confident in our player evaluations.  The ranking / rating is intended to help each player find the right college fit for THEM.  If you are ranked that is a tremendous accomplishment.  You should be proud of yourself.  No matter the ranking/rating, use it as motivation to continue to improve.  Remember, you are only in High School or Junior College.  This is only the beginning.  Keep working hard and you will achieve your goals.  We are here to help you reach your goals.  We are always here as a reference for you.  Please DO list our name and contact information in your correspondence with college coaches  and on your highlight videos.  I promise you, it is worth it.

You Are a Senior, Now What?

So, you are a 2016 Kicker/Punter and you are most likely really getting stressed out about the next four years of your life. Either you are committed already and think you are the greatest or you haven’t committed and are wondering what is next?

This blog is going to be in two parts….first for the UNCOMMITTED, second for the COMMITTED.

For the UNCOMMITTED

  • First off, CHILL! It is still early in the recruiting process, trust me. Recruiting goes all the way through August.
  • Second, do NOT slack on your grades. Nothing worse than getting a call from a school but you can’t go to them because your grades aren’t up to par.
  • Continue to work with a Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Member in your area and DOMINATE all Chris Sailer Kicking camps in your area (yes, you can AND should keep going to Chris Sailer Kicking camps when you are a senior). You never know when the right school is going to contact me looking for a Kicker/Punter like you. You should still be going to Chris Sailer Kicking Camps in your area to get ready for VEGAS XXVIII in May. May Vegas is essentially your last chance to make it happen.
  • Fourth, you are the “old” guy at the camps now so you need to act like it…be mature, be confident, be nice to the young guys as you were once them.

For the COMMITTED

  • First off, NEVER, EVER STOP getting better. There is nothing that will upset a coach more than having a scholarship or preferred walk-on Kicker/Punter come into camp looking sloppy. They will EASILY be able to tell you if you haven’t improved since the time they recruited you. Don’t be that guy.
  • Second, do NOT slack on your grades. Sadly, I have had a kid lose a scholarship because his final semester grades slacked so much.
  • Third, NEVER stop improving and getting ready for the next stage of your life. Work with a Chris Sailer Kicking Staff Member and DOMINATE all Chris Sailer Kicking camps in your area. (yes, you can AND should keep going to Chris Sailer Kicking camps when you are a senior)
  • Fourth, you are the “old” guy at the camps now so you need to act like it…be mature, be confident, be nice to the young guys as you were once them.

IL Summer Camp Recap – Cote Wins It!

The Chris Sailer Kicking 2015 Summer Tour is in full swing. The regional summer camps kicked off this past Thursday in Chicago, IL. Over 100 specialists from 15 plus states were in attendance to train and compete with the best. This camp has a great history, most recently landing champions Tanner Blain at San Diego State and Tyler Davis at Penn State last year. I expect similar results from this year’s talented group. Take a look at the champions and other standouts.

Camp Champion: David Cote (2016, Canada) – David is an incredible talent. He is big, strong, athletic and naturally talented. He won the charting field goal session proving his consistency and showing off his range. He came through in the head to head finals hitting consecutive field goals of 47, 52, 57 and 60 yards off the ground. His kickoffs are also tremendous. If you didn’t know the name before, you know it now. David is a D1 specialist without a doubt.

Field Goal Champion: Nate Needham (2016, IN) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student is an all around standout. He won the last man standing field goal competition by nailing 5 consecutive field goals of 35, 40, 45, 50, and 52 yards. He kicks off the ground with ease and consistency. He averages 65 plus yards on kickoffs with 3.8 – 4.1 hang time. Nate also excels punting the football. He is a D1 talent.

Kickoff Champion: Kaden Keon (2016, MI) – The Chris Sailer Kicking “Event Elite” Member has one of the strongest legs in the nation and is an incredible competitor. He won the kickoff competition by hitting 75-yard kickoffs and consistently putting up 4.0 plus second hang time. Kaden is also strong on both field goals and punts. Kaden will compete very well at the D1 level.

Punt Champion: Bryce Webb (2017, KY) – The #4 ranked punter in the nation again proved why. This is now the third consecutive regional camp that he has appeared in the finals. Bryce is a great athlete with the prototypical punter frame. He easily averages 40 plus yards and shows the ability to hit 4.8-5.1 hang time punts. He should be a top target for college coaches in next year’s recruiting class.

Other 2016 Standouts: Austin Chekaluk, Christian Dinevski, Henry Tarbox, Karl Schmidt, Ryley Guay, Seiver Tandy & Tyler Grimes.

Top 2017 Kicker: Quinn Saluan (OH) – Quinn is a very talented kicker / punter. The veteran Chris Sailer Kicking specialist is a good athlete with one of the stronger legs in his class. He hits 50 plus yard field goals off the ground. His kickoffs are solid and improving. He is also a capable punter. Quinn is a competitor that has a bright college future.

Other 2017 Standouts: Adam Durocher, Chase Bruns, Cody Gronewold, Declan Holm, Matt Hellen, Noah Donatelli.

Class of 2018/2019 Future Stars: Brandon Walters, Brayden Johnson, Eduardo Favella, Eric Hildebrand, Andy Vujnovich, Zac Adams, Jake Holous & James Turner.

Chris Sailer Kicking will next make a stop in Dublin OH for the FBU Top Gun camp (July 17-18) where we will be selecting the 2016 U.S. Army All-Americans as well at the Adidas Freshman All-Americans & FBU Class of 2020 and 2021 All-Americans. Then the summer will conclude with regional camps in Dallas, TX (July 23), Charlotte, NC (July 25), Atlanta, GA (July 26) and Los Angeles, CA (July 29).
