2016 WA Fall Camp Recap, Newcomer Obi Eriza Wins It!

The Chris Sailer Kicking Fall Camp Tour made its most recent stop in Seattle, WA.  This region of the nation is bringing more and more talent to the table with each camp we run here.  This was the largest turnout yet in the Northwest and the talent did not disappoint.  The results rivaled previous fall camps in IL, FL & PA.  On a beautiful day, with near perfect conditions the following athletes stood out.

Overall Camp Champion
img_2388Obi Eriza (2017) – It is rare that a first time Chris Sailer Kicking camp attendee wins it all, but Obi accomplished exactly that.  He was solid during the morning session and caught my eye as someone to watch.  He stepped up in the afternoon and won the last man standing field goal competition.  He then defeated Mark Kharchenko and Manuel Leonzo in the semi-finals and finals respectively.  He is a talented athlete with a strong leg.  Look for Obi to one day challenge at the college level.

Field Goal Champion
img_2399Manuel Leonzo (2017) – Manuel has now performed at a high level at several Chris Sailer Kicking camps.  He hits a pure ball off the ground on field goals and shows 50+ yard range.  He is also strong on kickoffs averaging 60-65 yards with 3.7+ hang time.  Manuel is an excellent talent that will star for a college football program.


Kickoff Champion / Punt Champion
img_2376Mark Kharchenko (2017) – Mark was one of the best all around talents at the camp.  He punted majority of the day and dominated the competitions.  He averages well over 40 yards with 4.3+ hang time.  A big, tall, strong athlete that has the frame and skill to be an outstanding college punter.  He also won the kickoff competition by hitting several balls into the end zone from the 35 yard line with 3.7+ hang time.  Look for Mark to contribute as a P/KO combo player at the next level.

Top 2017 Prospect
img_1390Kyle Sentkowski – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student and 2-Time “Event Elite” Member put in another solid performance.  He has 55+ yard range on field goals off the ground.  Kickoffs are strong and continue to be near the top of his class.  Kyle is also establishing himself as a legitimate college punting prospect.  Kyle is mentally strong and shows every sign of being ready for D1 football.

Next Best: Tyler Padilla – Talented combo player K/P.

Top 2018 Prospect
img_2394Conor Calvert – Conor continues to develop at a fantastic pace.  He has attended several Chris Sailer Kicking camps over the years.  He hits a smooth and accurate ball on field goals.  He won the Class of 2018 kickoff competition with a 63 yard, 3.6 yard kickoff.  He is also a capable punter.  Conor is proving that he will one day be a great college player.


Next Best: Holden Kooiker – Excellent athlete with a strong leg.

Top 2019 Prospects
Bryce Law & Tanner Shattuck – Both athletes proved worthy of this recognition.  Bryce has one of the stronger legs in his class and shows great ability as both a kicker and punter.  Tanner did very well on field goal and then stepped up to win the Class of 2019 kickoff competition.  Both are future stars.

Next Best: David Eisenkraft – Has the tools to challenge the best in his class.

WA Spring Camp Recap, Sentkowski Wins It!

The road to Vegas XXVIII continued this past weekend in Seattle, WA.  Previous stops included Dallas, Los Angeles, Charlotte, Atlanta and Chicago.  The talent in Seattle didn’t disappoint.  There was a great blend of youth and experienced junior/senior specialists on display.  Several attendees will be playing on Saturdays in the near future.  Take a look at the results:

Overall Camp Champion: Kyle Sentkowski (2017, WA) – The “Event Elite” Member was stellar all day.  Over the years, his consistent performances have landed him in the national spotlight.  This time he came out on top by coming through in the clutch.  He was the field goal champion and then beat out both Zach Emerson and Nino Alebegic in the head to head finals.  Kyle is an excellent D1 prospect.

Kickoff & Field Goal Champion: Zach Emerson (2016, OR) – The Oregon commit was solid the entire day.  He is a strong and consistent performer.  He won the field competition by nailing multiple 50+ yard field goals without a miss.  He dominated the kickoff competition by averaging over 70 yards with near 4.0 second hang time.  Zach is ready to compete at the D1 level.

Punt Champion: Nino Alibegic (2016, ID) – Nino is a talented all around kicker/punter.  The senior competed well in all phases of the game.  His field goals are his strongest skill.  His kickoffs show D1 potential.  On this day, he came out on top in the punt competition, where he shows a big leg.  Nino has the skills to compete with the top kickers in the nation.

Class of 2016
Zach Emerson and Nino Alibegic were the most consistent on the day.  Two other that showed very well were Andre Slyter and Connor Lovell.  Slyter, the Eastern Washington commit, has a very powerful leg and great potential.  He will be an excellent player for Eastern in the near future.  Lovell also has a strong leg and shows he can hit a big ball at times.  He too has the skills to compete at the college level.

Class of 2017
Kyle Sentkowski was the top all around performer on the day.  Tyler Padilla however gave him a run for his money.  The combo player (K/P) showed flashes of what he is capable of as both a kicker and punter.  Others to watch out for include Chandler Woolley, Lane Grant, Liam Carius, Manuel Leonzo, Cameron Anderson, Brendon Morton and Cole Brister.

Class of 2018
Although no one stood as superior in the group, the future is bright with some consistent talent in the Northwest.  Same names to look for are Conor Calvert, Cory Davis, Jake Hayes, Lance D’Alessio, Nate Cutler, and Andrew Houghton.

Class of 2019 Future Stars: Cody Redmond, Griffin Cummings, Max Chandler, and Dillon Sturm.

Top Youth Talent: Sam Tolton
