2017 NC Spring Camp Recap – Nicholas Sciba Wins It!

The Chris Sailer Kicking 2017 Spring Camp Tour made its second stop in Charlotte, NC this past weekend.  This is by far the fastest growing location both in talent and attendance as of late.  Nearly 200 specialists participated in this highly competitive camp.  All in all well over fifteen states were represented.  It was clear from the outset that many were set to prove that they were ready to challenge for a TOP 12 spot this coming May in Las Vegas.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Champion
Nicholas Sciba (2018, SC) – The TOP 12 Camp Invitee (January) was steady from start to finish.  As always, he showed up focused and determined to dominate.  He won the field goal competition by demonstrating excellent accuracy and range.  He also finished in the final 3 in the kickoff competition.  This talented combo player (K/P) is proving that he is ready for the next level.  Look for Nicholas to be near the top of college recruiting lists as we enter the summer.

Field Goal Champion
Cameron Shirkey (2020, OH) – Cameron become the first freshman to win a major competition in quite some time.  He hit 7 consecutive field goals, capping it off with a 52-yard competition winner.  This newcomer to Chris Sailer Kicking showed that he will be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.


Kickoff Champion
Trevor Thompson (2018, OH) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker showed off his big leg by winning the kickoff competition with a 68 yard, 3.75 bomb. Trevor continues to prove that he has one of the stronger legs in the 2018 Class.  He has the tools to impress college coaches around the nation.

Punting Champion
Cody Creed (2018, NC) – Cody decided to focus on punting on this day and his decision paid off.  The talented combo player (K/P) has excellent all around ability.  He dominated the punting group by winning 2 of the 3 major competitions, then came through in the final competition nailing several punts over 40 yards with 4.4 plus hang time.  Cody is a special talent that will challenge for a TOP 12 spot this coming May in Las Vegas.

Class of 2017 MVP
Jefferson Norwood – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker continues to excel at a new level each time we see him.  He has 55+ yard range on field goals off the ground.  Kickoffs are deep with excellent hang time.  He is also coming into his own as a punter.  Jefferson is absolutely ready for the next level. His maturity and growing confidence will benefit any college football program.

Take a look at the results…

Day 1

Field Goal Champions

Class of 2019 & Younger
Carson Garrett (2019, TX) – Carson is an excellent young kicker.  He is a great athlete with elite leg strength.  He is already hitting a college level ball off the ground on field goals.  He is also very strong on kickoff and also showing punting ability.

Class of 2018
Ashton Garner – (2018, MS) – Ashton is a talented rising junior.  He has a big leg and competes very well under pressure.  He has all the tools to compete with the best in his class.  Ashton is an athlete with great upside.
