Chris Sailer Kicking - College Camp at the IMG Academy in Florida

Chris Sailer Kicking – College Camp at the IMG Academy in Florida

Chris Sailer Kicking kicked off the week at the prestigious IMG Academy in FL with the College Camp for 4-Year College Players.  Many of the nation’s best including specialists from the SEC, PAC 12, ACC, BIG 12 Conferences and many more were in attendance to learn and compete with and from the best.  The group included a 2015 Ray Guy Award Finalist, several 2015 Lou Groza Award Semi-Finalists, several 2016 preseason Ray Guy Award Watch List Members & several 2016 Lou Groza Award preseason Watch List Members.  Take a look at the impressive results.

Field Goal Champion: Garrett Owens (Oregon State) – Garrett has been a Chris Sailer Kicking student for 7 years now.  He has had great success at Oregon State and enters his junior year as one to watch.  He has an NFL leg and outstanding long term potential.  Field goals are outstanding.  He is a competitor that kicks with huge confidence.  His kickoffs are also elite.  Expect big things.  Garrett has the tools to earn All PAC 12 honors this coming season.

Runner Up: Eddy Pineiro (Florida) – Eddy has as much potential as anyone in the nation entering the 2016 season.  He has perhaps the quickest leg that I have seen in my 16 years of coaching specialists.  Although he has never kicked in a college game, the expectations are high.  I have a strong feeling he will live up to the hype.  He has 60 plus yard field goal range (with no wind) and drills kickoffs 75 plus yards (with no wind) with ease.  He is ready!

Kickoff Champion: Tristan Vizcaino (Washington) – Talent like this does not come along often.  He has one of the strongest legs in all of college football, if not the strongest.  He also has NFL potential as both a kicker and punter.  He won the kickoff competition by nailing a 96 yard, 4.21 second hang time kickoff (moderately wind aided).  He hit several kickoffs out of the endzone with over 4.40 second plus hang time. He has huge range on field goals and gets elite height on his ball.  He also smashes punts with great consistency.  He hit several balls well over 55 yards with 5.00 second hang times.  The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student will be a real force in the PAC 12 this coming season.

Runner Up: Elliott Fry (South Carolina) – Elliott enters his senior year as one of the top NFL prospects in the nation.  He has had a great college career to date and looks to dominate the SEC once again.  He has worked with Chris Sailer Kicking now for 6 years and it shows in his confidence.  He has great range on field goals and gets outstanding height on his ball.  His kickoffs are elite and ready to compete at the NFL level.  Elliott should wrap up his college career this upcoming season with great success.

Punt Champion: Colby Wadman (UC Davis) – Colby has now won this competition back-to-back years.  The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student defeated several highly touted punters for the championship once again.  He has a big time leg and punts with excellent consistency.  Colby has great control of the ball and directional punts with ease.  He enters his senior year as a legitimate NFL prospect.

Runner Up: Michael Carrizosa (San Jose State) – The 2015 Ray Guy Award Finalist was within one punt of winning the event.  He was 2nd in the nation last year with a 47.5 yard punting average.  He proved once again that you can expect the same type of performance for the 2016 season.  He also smashes kickoffs.  The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student should continue to dominate the college level as he prepares for future NFL success.

Other Top Performers: Aidan Schneider (Oregon), Alex Woznick (South Carolina), Bennett Moehring (Navy), Cole Murphy (Syracuse), Jack Gonsoulin (LSU), Kyle Bambard (NC State).

Many younger, less established K/P’s attended that you will hear big things from in the future.

The week at the IMG Academy continues tomorrow with the “TOP 12” & “Event Elite” camp.  This camp will feature the very best kickers/punters at the high school/junior college level in America.  The week will conclude with Underclassmen Invitational which will feature nearly 200 specialists from the Classes of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
