So You Didn’t Make TOP 12, Now What?

For the past few weeks, you have been waiting anxiously to see if you were going to be selected to the TOP 12 Camp. When the first 20 selections were announced, 20 Kickers / Punters were ecstatic. Hundreds of others were upset, frustrated, angry, etc…. rightfully so. As athletes and competitors the desire to succeed should run deep.

2021 TOP 12 (1st 20) *in alphabetical order
Bert Auburn (TX)
Cole Becker (CA)
Daniel Bethel (TN)
Josh Bryan (CA)
Caden Costa (LA)
Matthew Dennis (NC)
Tommy Doman (MI)
Kade Hensley (TN)
Michael Hughes (WV)
David Kemp (FL)
Cameron Little (OK)
Jake Marion (NC)

Couple ways to look at it….

You can be upset with me for not selecting you. You can be upset with yourself for not performing when it counted. You can even find a way to blame others, but, it is ultimately on you. The only thing you can control is how hard and smart you work moving forward. Everyone in Vegas is competing for the same spots. Don’t let anybody outwork you and you will see different results.

You need to use this as motivation to make sure you perform better. This is all up to you. The choice is yours.

If you are a Kicker / Punter that strives to be the best, you want to be at that TOP 12 camp this summer. Any single athlete that has been there (scholarship Kickers / Punters, All-Americans, NFL players) will tell you that it is, by far, the best camp they have ever been to in their life. What you need to do is get back on the horse. Work smarter and harder. Your opportunity is waiting for you in the form of VEGAS XXXVI.

At Vegas XXXVI, I will choose 20 additional TOP 12 Camp Invitees.  They will join the first 20 selected at the Invite Only TOP 12 Camp this summer.   This is a true invite only camp. I do NOT just hand out invites to get people to come to it. That would give me no credibility. I select the best because they are the best. They will represent the TOP 12 fraternity and Chris Sailer Kicking for life.

Are you one of them? Time to decide. Prove to me, and the rest of the world, that you belong.

Or don’t. THE CHOICE IS YOURS…..

Nearly 400 specialists attended Vegas XXXIV May 11-12, 2019. Talent from over 40 states and 3 countries attended the most popular camp in the world for Kickers, Punters & Long Snappers. The 34rd event in Las Vegas was a tremendous success. As always the #1 goal of all recruits in attendance is to make the prestigious exposure list known as the TOP 12. Here are just a few names that are part of this exclusive fraternity… Justin Tucker, Dan Bailey, JK Scott, Bryan Anger, Ryan Allen, Ryan Succop, Kai Forbath, Tress Way, Bradley Pinion, Logan Cooke, Randy Bullock, Ka’imi Fairbairn, Cody Parkey, Dustin Hopkins, Blair Walsh, Colby Wadman. The list goes on and on.

These 20 Kickers / Punters are clearly well deserving of the honor of being selected to attend the 2019 TOP 12 Camp. They should be commended on their accomplishments. I understand that many other tremendous kicking and punting specialists in attendance were also deserving and can state their case as to why they are deserving over the first 20 selected. In the end, these choices were made based on several factors and ultimately the decision of Chris Sailer.
