Meeks Steps Up Bigtime to Win In Dallas!

Chris Sailer Kicking hosted the largest camp of the fall to date, and it just might have also been the most talented, this past weekend in Dallas, TX.  Specialists from over 10 states were in attendance to learn and compete.  The camp could have been won by a dozen or so athletes, but only one could come out on top.  Take a look at the results.

Overall Camp Champion:
Jacob Meeks (2018, TX) – The longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student had his best performance ever.  He won a major field goal competition by hitting on 7-7 field goals with a long of 57.  His kickoffs were also strong.  He averaged over 65 yards with 3.7+ hang time.  Jacob is coming into his own at the right time.  He has a bright college future with continued hard work.

Field Goal Champion:
Matthew Jaeger (2018, MN) – Matthew is another longtime Chris Sailer Kicking student who is beginning to dominate camps.  He won a major field goal competition by going 8-8 and connecting on back to back 58 yard field goals.  He is smooth and accurate.  His kickoffs are also nearing the top of his class.  Matthew is gong to be a fine college player.

Kickoff Champion:
Liam Jones (2017, OK) – Liam was the most impressive all around specialist on the day.  He connected on over 90% of his field goals and dominated mentally.  He won the kickoff competition by hitting a few balls through the uprights. His best ball on the day was 75 yards with 4.13 hang time.  The Kansas commit is 100% ready for the next level.

Punt Champion:
Jack Geiger (2017, CA) – Jack was by far the best punter on the day.  The Chris Sailer Kicking Event Elite specialist dominated in all punt competitions.  He averaged 40+ yards with 4.3+ hang time.  He was consistent and also showed the ability to hit a big ball.  His best ball on the day traveled 55 yards with 4.88 hang time.  Jack is a top national punting prospect.

Top 2017 Prospects:
