10 Benefits of attending the 2019 FBU Top Gun Camp run by Chris Sailer Kicking!

10 Benefits of attending the 2019 FBU Top Gun Camp run by Chris Sailer Kicking!

1) Chris Sailer will be present at this camp.

2) Chris Sailer will be selecting All-Americans for the 2020 All-American Bowl on NBC.

Two Class of 2020 Kickers will be selected.
Two Class of 2020 Punters will be selected.

*The All-American Bowl on NBC (Formerly the U.S. Army All-American Bowl) is an all expenses paid game that will take place in San Antonio, TX in January of 2020.

3) Chris Sailer will be selecting All-Americans for the 2020 Polynesian Bowl on CBS Sports.

Two Class of 2020 Kickers/Punters will be selected.

*The Polynesian All-American Bowl is an all expenses paid game that will take place in Honolulu, HI in January of 2020.

4) Selections for these All-American Bowl spots will be based on evaluation & competition. Every Class of 2020 Kicker & Punter in attendance will have the same opportunity to EARN selection. You will have to meet minimum requirements to qualify for finals competitions.

Field Goal: The ability to hit a D1 Level ball off the ground with range of 55+ yards.

Kickoff: The ability to hit a D1 Level ball of 70+ yards and 4.0+ hang time.

Punt: The ability to hit a D1 Level ball of 45+ yards and 4.8+ hang time.

*These numbers are not set in stone. They will be adjusted based on weather conditions and participants in attendance.

5) All-American Bowl selections are earned… not given.

Each year nearly every top Chris Sailer Kicking recruit attends the FBU Top Gun Camp. However every year, not every top Chris Sailer Kicking recruit earns an All-American Bowl spot.


2019 All-American Bowl on NBC Selections:
Will Powers (USC Preferred Walk-On commit) earned an All-American Bowl on NBC spot as a punter. He was not a highly ranked Chris Sailer Kicking Punter headed into competition. However he stepped his game up and earned his way to All-American status by dominating evaluation periods and ultimately defeating long time Chris Sailer Kicking Punter Austin McNamara (#2 ranked punter in the nation & Texas Tech full scholarship commit) in the final competition.

Alex Felkins (Columbia commit) earned an All-American Bowl on NBC spot as a Kicker. He was ranked outside the top 10 in America heading into camp. However, he stepped up and defeated kickers that were ranked higher (Tim Horn – Washington commit, Camden Lewis – Oregon commit, Noah Rauschenberg – Baylor commit, Patrick Nations – East Carolina commit, Evan Davis – Toledo commit to name a few).

Previous U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection:
Drue Chrisman (Ohio State) earned a U.S. Army All-American spot at his very first Chris Sailer Kicking camp.

Barrett Pickering (Nebraska) nearly earned an U.S. Army All-American spot at his very first Chris Sailer Kicking camp. He was defeated during the final head to head competition by eventual champions B.T. Potter & Charles Campbell.

Marshall Long (Georgia) earned a U.S. Army All-American spot. He camp into camp ranked outside of the Top 10 and defeated several FBS full scholarship commits.

Charles Campbell (Indiana) earned a U.S. Army All-American spot. He camp into as a major underdog and defeated several FBS full scholarship commits.

The list goes on and on….

6) Every player in attendance (Classes of 2020, 2021, 2022 & Future Stars) will be ranked by Chris Sailer on ChrisSailerKicking.com. Chris Sailer Kicking has been the #1 authority on ranking and evaluating high school specialists since 2000. Being ranked with Chris Sailer Kicking is a major advantage in recruiting for ALL LEVELS (D1 – FBS & FCS, D2, D3 & NAIA). Chris Sailer ranks athletes at EVERY CAMP!

7) Experience, Experience, Experience!!! Competing for a spot for 2 of the 3 major All-American Bowls is a privilege and honor. Winning selection is fantastic, however it is not the most important factor. The opportunity to compete against the best specialists in America will prepare you for what it takes to be a specialist at the college level. The experience you gain from competing at the highest level will be recognized by college coaches and will serve as a huge resume builder (Participant in the prestigious 2019 FBU Top Gun Camp).

*If you are not a D1 Level Kicker, yes it will be difficult to earn an All-American Bowl spot. However, the experience gained will not only be enjoyable, but will pay off big time down the road.

8) Social Gains. This is not only an opportunity on the field, it is a major opportunity off the field. You will meet and interact with the very best Kickers, Punters & Long Snappers in America. The specialist world is a tight knit community. Although competitive, it is also a ton of fun. The relationships that you build in this community will last well beyond football. Top Gun is a fantastic social environment for players and families.

9) Chris Sailer WILL know your name.

I have run hundreds upon hundreds of kicking camps. If I have 10 K/P’s at a lesson, 50 K/P’s at a small camp, 100 K/P’s at a large camp or 400 K/P’s at national events… I will know everyone by name by the time the camp is over. The focus is never just on the top performers in attendance, the focus is on ALL athletes in attendance. My goal has always been to help all Chris Sailer Kicking athletes use sports to earn a college degree.

“The most impressive part of your camps is your ability to know each player by name. I don’t know how you do it. It is obvious that you put the time and effort into caring about each individual student. I thank you for making your camps an incredible experience for all in attendance. There is no doubt you are the best in the business” – Parent of a Chris Sailer Kicking student in the Class of 2022

10) Instruction. Instruction is the cornerstone of every Chris Sailer Kicking camp since 2000. Chris Sailer Kicking will ALWAYS provide instruction at every Chris Sailer Kicking no matter what.

There is a reason why Chris Sailer and Chris Sailer Kicking have earned the right and inked the partnerships to select the All-Americans for 2 of the 3 major high school All-American Bowls. Expect professionalism and a top notch quality camp from top to bottom. See you in Rock Hill, SC on July 11-12, 2019.

2016 CA Summer Camp Recap – Fonseca Pulls Out The Win!

The 2016 Chris Sailer Kicking Summer Tour has officially come to an end.  18 Camps, 13 States and approximately 2,000 camp attendees later, the football season is finally here.  The final camp of the summer took place in Los Angeles, CA at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High School on July 31.  Well over 150 specialists attended this always fun and competitive one day camp.  Take a look at the results.

IMG_1585Lorran Fonseca (JC, CA) – Lorran has been on fire since joining Chris Sailer Kicking in May in Las Vegas.  There he won the field goal last man standing competition as well as the free camp pressure kick in front of hundreds of spectators.  He then went on to dominate the college showcase camp in CA in June.  Now he came out on top once again by defeating the best that the west coast had to offer.  He is smooth and accurate on field goals.  He was the kickoff champion at this camp, kickoffs are D1 ready.  Lorran is a competitor that steps up most under pressure.  He is ready for the next level!

IMG_1183Brandon Gracia (JC, CA) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking Kicker/Punter dominated once again.  On this day he was the punting champion by staying consistent and hitting every ball over 40 yards, with 4.4 plus second hang time.  His field goals and kickoffs are elite and D1 ready.  Brandon is clearly one of the very best junior college kickers in the nation.  Look for him to have a huge season and pick up multiple D1 scholarship offers.


IMG_1587Santiago Arango (JC, CA) – Santiago has been to multiple Chris Sailer Kicking camps the summer.  The Florida native has enrolled at El Camino Junior College for this season and is primed to enjoy major success.  He won the field goals competition by nailing 3 consecutive 60 yarders.  He was also one of the top kickoff performers.  Santiago is a competitor that has proven time and time again that he can compete with the best.


IMG_1556Aidan Daily (JC, CA) – The Chris Sailer Kicking “Event Elite” Member continues to prove why he is one of the top punting prospects in the nation.  He won several punting competitions and was steady as always throughout the entire day.  He easily averages 40 plus yards with 4.5 plus second hang time.  He also has great control of the ball and does all the small things required to punt at the D1 level.  Look for Aidan to be one of the very best in the junior college ranks this season.


IMG_1070Asa Fuller (2017, CA) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student has as much talent as any senior kicker in America.  He is a great athlete with an explosive leg.  He has 60 plus yard field goal range and gets nice height on his ball.  His kickoffs are very strong.  He has proven recently that he can hit a 70 plus yard ball with 4.1 plus second hang time.  The future is bright!

Other 2017 Standouts: Cooper Garcia, Clay Eggeman, Daniel Whelan, Dario Longhetto, Diego Cacho-Sousa, Jose Elizondo, Liam King, Logan Armstrong, Luke Tovar, Miguel Mendez, Nino Alibegic, Steve Sanchez, Tanner Carcamo, Tiago Paim, Torre Zolferino, Trevor Bowens, Derrik Engel, Eli Kasiano, Kane Bowen, Matt Bazarevitsch, Chris Fields, David Stone, Sean Senn, Andrew Shelly, Alex Calderon, Evan Padilla, Jacob Vose, Prominence Akubuo-Onwuemeka.

IMG_1458Ajay Culhane – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student had perhaps his best performance yet.  He was extremely accurate and showed nice range on field goals off the ground.  He also stepped up and won the kickoff competition for his age group.  Ajay is well on his way.


IMG_2272Derek Ng – Coming off a strong performance at the Underclassmen Invitational in FL, Derek followed it up with another stellar performance in CA.  He competed well on both field goals and kickoffs.  The highlight of his day was nailing a 60 yard field goal.  The future is bright!


IMG_2255Dylan Williams – Dylan is starting to prove that he can hang with the big guns.  He is a very accurate field goal kicker.  His kickoffs are developing at a steady pace.  And perhaps most importantly, he has a great head on his shoulders.  Look for Dylan to have a great 2016 season.


IMG_1447Eric Fellenzer – Eric had a big 2016 Spring/Summer with Chris Sailer Kicking.  He is physically dominating and shows great potential.  His field goals and kickoffs are among the best in his class.  Eric has the tools to be outstanding with continued hard work.  I love his upside.
