The 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking College Camp Was Loaded With Talent!

The 2017 Chris Sailer Kicking College Camp took place in Tampa, FL on July 14-16.  The athletes arrived from all over America on Friday and checked into the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza near the airport.  Saturday began with a 3 hour training session, followed by a 2 hour film breakdown session.  Athletes and staff headed to downtown Tampa for an evening of fun and relaxation.  Sunday kicked off with another 3 hour training session before the specialists returned to the hotel to pack up and head back to their colleges.

The weekend offered a great combination of training and comradery.  This camp was absolutely loaded with talent.  Specialists from the SEC, BIG 12, PAC 12, ACC & more were in attendance.  The competition was intense from start to finish.  Take a look at the results.

Day 1: Eddy Pineiro (Kicker) & Michael Carrizosa (Punter)
Day 2: Aidan Schneider (Kicker) & Michael Carrizosa (Punter)

Eddy Pineiro (Florida) – Eddy is an incredible talent that has NFL written all over him.  Look for Eddy to follow up a tremendous freshman year with another strong sophomore campaign.

Tristan Vizcaino (Washington) – Tristan may just be the most talented all around specialist in the nation.  His ability on field goal, kickoff and punt is off the charts.

Garrett Owens (Iowa State) – Garrett is primed for a huge 2017 season.  The transfer from Oregon State has great NFL ability and he is nails mentally.

Aidan Schneider (Oregon) – Aidan has put together one of the strongest field goals percentages in the history of college football over the past 3 seasons.  Expect greatness this season.

Blanton Creque (Louisville) – Blanton is as smooth and accurate as they come.  He hits a pure ball and has excellent range.  Blanton should be in the Lou Groza Award conversation by seasons end.

Andrew Gantz (Cincinnati) – Andrew is one of the best kicker in the nation.  Very smooth kicker that dominates under pressure.  Andrew should challenge the best in 2017.

Jack Gonsoulin (LSU) – Jack is a big time talent.  He hits an NFL level ball and does well under pressure.  Look for Jack to make some noise at LSU this year.

Cole Murphy (Syracuse) – Cole continues to make big strides.  He has great ability on both field goal and kickoff.  Look for Cole to have a big season this Fall.

Cole Tracy (Assumption) – Cole has proven himself during the season (7 FG’s in one game… twice) and proved himself once again at this camp against the big name college guys.  He is simply a great kicker.

Lorran Fonseca (Nichols State) – Lorran can kick with the best of them.  He hits a big time ball on both field goal and kickoff.  Look for Lorran to dominate this coming season.

Liam Jones (Kansas), Andrew Strauch (UCLA), Jaime Medina (Sacramento State), Kevin Robledo (SMU), Jeffrey Chan (Syracuse), Zach Mays (Cornell), Diego Marquez (Miami), Cole Smith (Cincinnati), Jake Lane (Jacksonville State), Jose Perez (Incarnate Word), Parker Grothaus (Incarnate Word), Jefferson Norwood (Lenoir Rhyne).

Michael Carrizosa (San Jose State) – Michael is the real deal.  The former Ray Guy Award Finalist has the NFL in his sights.  He absolutely hammers the ball and punts with great consistency.

Shane Tripucka (Texas A&M) – Shane is a fantastic SEC punter.  He had a great 2016 and shows all the signs of building on that in 2017.  He has NFL ability.

Jacob De Maio (Weber State) – Jacob is a great punting talent.  He is big, tall and very strong.  He was excellent in 2016 and should be even better in 2017.

DJ Arnson (Northern Arizona), Taylor Cornish (Missouri Southern State).

The 2017 is a few months away.  Expect greatness from Chris Sailer Kicking specialists.  For more information visit


2016 Chris Sailer Kicking IMG College Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking - College Camp at the IMG Academy in Florida

Chris Sailer Kicking – College Camp at the IMG Academy in Florida

Chris Sailer Kicking kicked off the week at the prestigious IMG Academy in FL with the College Camp for 4-Year College Players.  Many of the nation’s best including specialists from the SEC, PAC 12, ACC, BIG 12 Conferences and many more were in attendance to learn and compete with and from the best.  The group included a 2015 Ray Guy Award Finalist, several 2015 Lou Groza Award Semi-Finalists, several 2016 preseason Ray Guy Award Watch List Members & several 2016 Lou Groza Award preseason Watch List Members.  Take a look at the impressive results.

Field Goal Champion: Garrett Owens (Oregon State) – Garrett has been a Chris Sailer Kicking student for 7 years now.  He has had great success at Oregon State and enters his junior year as one to watch.  He has an NFL leg and outstanding long term potential.  Field goals are outstanding.  He is a competitor that kicks with huge confidence.  His kickoffs are also elite.  Expect big things.  Garrett has the tools to earn All PAC 12 honors this coming season.

Runner Up: Eddy Pineiro (Florida) – Eddy has as much potential as anyone in the nation entering the 2016 season.  He has perhaps the quickest leg that I have seen in my 16 years of coaching specialists.  Although he has never kicked in a college game, the expectations are high.  I have a strong feeling he will live up to the hype.  He has 60 plus yard field goal range (with no wind) and drills kickoffs 75 plus yards (with no wind) with ease.  He is ready!

Kickoff Champion: Tristan Vizcaino (Washington) – Talent like this does not come along often.  He has one of the strongest legs in all of college football, if not the strongest.  He also has NFL potential as both a kicker and punter.  He won the kickoff competition by nailing a 96 yard, 4.21 second hang time kickoff (moderately wind aided).  He hit several kickoffs out of the endzone with over 4.40 second plus hang time. He has huge range on field goals and gets elite height on his ball.  He also smashes punts with great consistency.  He hit several balls well over 55 yards with 5.00 second hang times.  The long time Chris Sailer Kicking student will be a real force in the PAC 12 this coming season.

Runner Up: Elliott Fry (South Carolina) – Elliott enters his senior year as one of the top NFL prospects in the nation.  He has had a great college career to date and looks to dominate the SEC once again.  He has worked with Chris Sailer Kicking now for 6 years and it shows in his confidence.  He has great range on field goals and gets outstanding height on his ball.  His kickoffs are elite and ready to compete at the NFL level.  Elliott should wrap up his college career this upcoming season with great success.

Punt Champion: Colby Wadman (UC Davis) – Colby has now won this competition back-to-back years.  The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student defeated several highly touted punters for the championship once again.  He has a big time leg and punts with excellent consistency.  Colby has great control of the ball and directional punts with ease.  He enters his senior year as a legitimate NFL prospect.

Runner Up: Michael Carrizosa (San Jose State) – The 2015 Ray Guy Award Finalist was within one punt of winning the event.  He was 2nd in the nation last year with a 47.5 yard punting average.  He proved once again that you can expect the same type of performance for the 2016 season.  He also smashes kickoffs.  The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student should continue to dominate the college level as he prepares for future NFL success.

Other Top Performers: Aidan Schneider (Oregon), Alex Woznick (South Carolina), Bennett Moehring (Navy), Cole Murphy (Syracuse), Jack Gonsoulin (LSU), Kyle Bambard (NC State).

Many younger, less established K/P’s attended that you will hear big things from in the future.

The week at the IMG Academy continues tomorrow with the “TOP 12” & “Event Elite” camp.  This camp will feature the very best kickers/punters at the high school/junior college level in America.  The week will conclude with Underclassmen Invitational which will feature nearly 200 specialists from the Classes of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

CA Nike Summer Camp Recap

Chris Sailer Kicking just completed the 2nd of six Nike Summer Camps with a stop in Los Angeles, CA.  Once again tons of talent was on hand hoping to impress.  Kickers, Punters & Long Snappers from all over the country were in attendance at Charter Oak High School in Covina.  Take a look at the champions and standouts.

Camp Champion
Donny Hageman (2014 JC, CA) – Donny came to camp on a mission.  It was evident from minute one.  The “TOP 12” Kicker / Punter and longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student dominated in all areas.  He won 2 major competitions (Field Goal & Kickoff) and nearly won the punting competition as well.  Donny is one of the very best JC prospects in the nation that should earn a D1 scholarship.

2014 Standouts
Tristan Vizcaino (2014, CA): The “TOP 12” and Washington State commit kicked and punted as well as I have ever seen him.  The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student proved exactly why he was offered and committed to Washington State. He has as much talent as anyone out there and his technique and consistency is coming along nicely.  A huge pick up for WSU.

Manuel Meza (2014 JC, CA): The talented punter was steady as always.  A top, if not the top, Junior College punter in the nation.  He regularly punts with a 40+ yard average with 4.5+ hang time.

Ben Sweet (2014, AZ):  Ben is quickly becoming a top national punting prospect.  He punts for great distance and hang time and has proven to be one of the most consistent high school punters out there.  Ben should start getting D1 attention in the near future.

Cole Murphy (2014, CA):  Cole has a tremendous amount of talent.  A great athlete with a big time leg.  He has only scratched the surface of what he is capable.  He has a great attitude and work ethic and could be a big time sleeper in this class.

Other 2014 Top Prospects: Lucas Alfonso, Jesse Kelly, & Cole Tracy.

2015 Standouts: Ethan Erickson, Alex Gebbing, Cristian Bianchi, Nicholas Marrone and Matt Abramo.

2016 Standouts: Jimmy Dorn and Andrew Rodriguez.

Up next: LSU (July 13) Charlotte, NC (July 15), Atlanta, GA (July 17), College Camp (July 19-21), Boston, MA (July 25), Chicago, IL (July 27), Los Angeles, CA (July 29th).
