Overall Champion – Omar Vasquez (2020, AZ)
This was Omar’s first Chris Sailer camp of his career. Omar showed great progress from the morning to the afternoon as he won the field goal charting competition with a 50 yarder. He battled in the afternoon against Nick Hill and Fabien Guillen to take the title of Camp Champ!

AZ Champion: Omar Vasquez & Carson Wiggs

Field Goal ChampionNick Hill (2020, CA)
Nick Hill continues to impress in AZ as he always seems to be in the finals of all competitions. Nick had an impressive day on both field goal and punt as he won a major field goal competition by going 7 for 7 with a long of 53 yards. Nick was also had a good day kicking off. With hard work on his punting technique, he has the strength to develop into a good college level punter as well.
