2020 NC & GA Spring Camp Recap – McFerson & Britton Step Up!

The 2020 Chris Sailer Kicking Spring Camp Tour is officially underway. Over 1000 athletes will participate in camps in So. Cal, NC, GA, WA, TX, IL, Nor Cal, MA & NV. The road all leads to the most popular specialist camp in the world… Vegas XXXVI (May 9-10, 2020).

Stops were made in Charlotte, NC & Atlanta, GA March 7th and 8th. The talent was off the charts. Take a look at the results…

Overall Camp Champions

Charlotte, NC
Bryce McFerson (2022, NC)
Bryce is a fantastic high school punting and kicking prospect. On this day he came through winning the punting competition. Bryce easily averages 40+ yards with 4.4+ hang time. He also shows that he can hit 50+ yard punts with 4.75+ hang time. He is currently ranked the #1 Punter in the Class of 2022 and should continue to battle for that spot the next few years. Bryce is also an excellent kicker. He is a top combo prospect without a doubt.

Atlanta, GA
Anderson Britton (2022, GA)
Anderson is an excellent up and coming kicking prospect. He is a great looking athlete with a bright future. He won the Field Goal Competition by going 7-8 including kicks of 35, 40, 45, 50, 52, 55 and 56 yards. Anderson is also a top kickoff specialist. He drives the ball into the end zone consistently with solid hang time. Anderson is a competitor that thrives under pressure. Big things ahead.

Competition Champions

Charlotte, NC
Field Goal & Kickoff ChampionDamian Ramos (2021, MD)
The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student had his best camp performance yet. Damian won both the Field Goal and Kickoff Competitions beating out an incredible field of talent. He went 7-8 on field goal with a long of 59 yards. His kickoffs averaged 65+ yards, with 3.8+ hang time. Damian is hitting stride during a crucial time in recruiting. Look for him to continue this strong run at Vegas XXXVI in May. He should challenge for a TOP 12 Spot.

Atlanta, GA
Kickoff & Punting Champion – Connor Weselman (2021, GA)

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.

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…..
