CA Nike Summer Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking just completed the 2nd of six Nike Summer Camps with a stop in Los Angeles, CA.  Once again tons of talent was on hand hoping to impress.  Kickers, Punters & Long Snappers from all over the country were in attendance at Charter Oak High School in Covina.  Take a look at the champions and standouts.

Camp Champion
Donny Hageman (2014 JC, CA) – Donny came to camp on a mission.  It was evident from minute one.  The “TOP 12” Kicker / Punter and longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student dominated in all areas.  He won 2 major competitions (Field Goal & Kickoff) and nearly won the punting competition as well.  Donny is one of the very best JC prospects in the nation that should earn a D1 scholarship.

2014 Standouts
Tristan Vizcaino (2014, CA): The “TOP 12” and Washington State commit kicked and punted as well as I have ever seen him.  The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student proved exactly why he was offered and committed to Washington State. He has as much talent as anyone out there and his technique and consistency is coming along nicely.  A huge pick up for WSU.

Manuel Meza (2014 JC, CA): The talented punter was steady as always.  A top, if not the top, Junior College punter in the nation.  He regularly punts with a 40+ yard average with 4.5+ hang time.

Ben Sweet (2014, AZ):  Ben is quickly becoming a top national punting prospect.  He punts for great distance and hang time and has proven to be one of the most consistent high school punters out there.  Ben should start getting D1 attention in the near future.

Cole Murphy (2014, CA):  Cole has a tremendous amount of talent.  A great athlete with a big time leg.  He has only scratched the surface of what he is capable.  He has a great attitude and work ethic and could be a big time sleeper in this class.

Other 2014 Top Prospects: Lucas Alfonso, Jesse Kelly, & Cole Tracy.

2015 Standouts: Ethan Erickson, Alex Gebbing, Cristian Bianchi, Nicholas Marrone and Matt Abramo.

2016 Standouts: Jimmy Dorn and Andrew Rodriguez.

Up next: LSU (July 13) Charlotte, NC (July 15), Atlanta, GA (July 17), College Camp (July 19-21), Boston, MA (July 25), Chicago, IL (July 27), Los Angeles, CA (July 29th).
