It’s Almost Spring & You’re a 2017 Kicker/Punter, Now What?

This is easily one of the top questions I get from senior Kickers/Punters and/or their parents. Here are the answers:

  1. You should definitely be at Chris Sailer Kicking Camp to stay sharp, focused, continue to learn how to handle pressure and show absolute dominance.
  2. If you are uncommitted, read THIS and THIS and get yourself ready for VEGAS 30 for a final push at exposure.
  3. If you are committed, you need to push yourself even harder. Dominate every camp. Commit yourself to not being stagnant.

All seniors and their parents need to remember, while you still have some time left in high school, colleges and their football programs aren’t stopping to wait for you. They have several Kickers & Punters on their roster and they already hate you for even thinking you will attempt to take their jobs come the summer time. (Fast forward a few years and think about how you will feel being on the other side)

I have done this many times and  have seen countless senior Kickers & Punters coast through their senior year only to find a nice spot on the bench come fall. Coaches call me continuously asking how the Kickers & Punters that they recruited are doing. Needless to say, they are not happy when I tell them “Oh, I haven’t seen him since VEGAS XXIX”!

The senior Kickers & Punters that keep working and attending camps are the ones that start.  It’s like clockwork.

Never rest and never stop improving seniors. See you soon!

To be the best, train & compete with the best!


5 Important Points for the Class of 2015

1.    You still have a long way to go with recruiting. Breathe, relax, take a chill pill. Bottom line, it is still early.  Less than 5% of national specialists have made their college choices.  Recruiting will go all the way through August.  Believe me.

2.    You should be attending every single Chris Sailer Kicking camp this spring that is near you (yes, VEGAS XXVI as well)….just like normal. Those that take their foot off the gas because “they are committed” end up really struggling as they enter college. Trust me, I have seen it hundreds of times. Nothing will piss off a coach more than recruiting a kid and he isn’t VERY ready when he steps on campus. (DO NOT THINK YOU SHOULD EVEN BE CONSIDERED ON MY STAFF UNTIL YOU HAVE PROVEN YOURSELF IN COLLEGE.)

3.    In the summer, you should attend the Chris Sailer Kicking College Camp for 4-year College Kickers/Punters to see how really compare to college Kickers/Punters.  Welcome to the real world my friends. This is the time to work harder than ever and prepare for your future.  Want to play in the NFL?  It begins NOW!

4.    Your time is now.  Be a leader.  Make a real name for yourself through dedication and hard work.  Don’t be the guy that future Kickers/Punters ask “What ever happened to ________ and why didn’t he ever pan out?”

5.    Be SMART and end your high school career strong. Be nice to everyone on the way out and be ready to move on.  Your past will effect your future at some point.
