Chris Sailer Kicking Featured Instructor – Carson Wiggs

This is our fifth week of a new series where we feature our amazing instructors. This will allow you learn more about these young men and why they have been chosen to represent CSK nationwide.

Week 5: Chris Sailer Kicking Senior Instructor, Carson Wiggs!

Carson Wiggs is a former place kicker. He has been on staff with Chris Sailer Kicking since 2008.

Wiggs attended South Grand Prairie High School in South Grand Prairie Texas. As a senior, he was invited to participate in the Under Armour All America Game in January 2008. He was also named honorable mention all-state and first team all-district as both punter and kicker, after averaging 37 yards per punt and making 8 of 13 field goals, while still maintaining his grades to earn honorable mention academic all-state.

Wiggs was a standout kicker at Purdue University from 2009-2012. He finished his college career ranked number one in program history in field goal percentage and third in field goals made. Wiggs has totaled the top four longest field goals in Purdue Boilermakers history, one being 59 yards.

He was considered as one of the better kicking prospects for the 2012 NFL Draft, as he was one of the few kickers selected to participate in the NFL Combine, but he was not selected during the draft. He did sign with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent and later with the Indianapolis Colts.

Carson currently lives in Dallas Forth Worth with his wife, Lori. He is a Project Manager for the Beck Group in Fort Worth, TX. He also works the Texas camps with Chris Sailer giving valuable instruction.

He offers private and group lessons throughout the year for aspiring kickers and punters in Texas.

VEGAS NATIONAL EVENTS

Vegas uprights

As you know, the Vegas Events are the biggest and best Kicking and Punting camps in the world. They are truly a national/international event to see how you compete against the best in the nation, and world. The May Event, or VEGAS XXVIII, is the second largest Kicking & Punting camp we run (VEGAS XXVII in January was the biggest). The main difference is the weather and there are less seniors since many have already stepped onto their college campuses for their next stage of their life.

The Vegas Events are NOT an invite only camp. They are first come, first served. Kickers & Punters ranging from 8th grade – JC are allowed to attend.

This is the SUPER BOWL for Kickers & Punters. No other kicking event comes close to the exposure offered by the National Vegas Events. Chris Sailer Kicking is, by far, the most credible recruiting source for Kickers & Punters in the country.  The “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” is the list to be on if you are seeking national exposure. From the Vegas Events, the Chris Sailer Kicking Staff will select the “TOP 12” Seniors/JC & the “TOP 12” Underclassman and “Event Elite”. Over 90% of the “TOP 12” have received full ride D1A scholarships in the past. Over 99% members of the “TOP 12” have gone on to play college football. In addition the “TOP 12” Underclassman will be invited to attend an exclusive summer camp to train and compete amongst that elite group.  The Competition Finals Round Winners (FG, Punt, and LS) will receive FREE Chris Sailer Kicking Camps for 1 FULL YEAR. (Excludes transportation and hotel). The Vegas Events offer the best exposure possible for Kickers & Punters. Chris Sailer Kicking has personal relationships with over 100 D1A Universities and many more at other levels. This is your chance to get recognized on a national scale. Chris Sailer Kicking works very closely with Scout.com, Rivals.com, Espn.com, etc. and have also been featured in Sports Illustrated, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Deadspin, etc.

Once again, Chris Sailer Kicking and Rubio Long Snapping will be teaming up with FBU to run the specialists portion of their camps. FBU is the world’s largest football training service and has hired us to handle their Kicking & Punting section. It is an honor and we are proud to do it again.

They will follow the same format as myself and report directly to FBU and yours truly. Yes, you will get ranked on ChrisSailerKicking.com when you attend an FBU camp.

Based on what we see at the FBU TOP GUN CAMP in SC on July 14-15, we will be choosing the two Kickers and two Punters that will participate in the US ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL.  Chris Sailer Kicking will also be selecting the East Bay Youth All-American for the Class of 2019 (Freshman All-American Bowl) and 2020 (8th Grade All-American Bowl) based on performances at the FBU TOP GUN CAMP in SC on July 14-15. You MUST be invited to the TOP GUN camp by performing well at one of the regional FBU camps prior to the TOP GUN Camp.

You (the specialists) asked for it, you got it. They (NFL coaches) asked for it, they got it. As you know, Chris Rubio and myself have always run the biggest and best exposure camps for high school Kickers, Punters and Long Snappers.  For the second year, we are moving into the NFL realm to give the needed exposure to our college athletes.

This one day camp will be a showcase for NFL coaches. There will be little coaching (you shouldn’t need a ton if you are at this camp) as this camp will all be about exposure. NFL coaches and personnel will be on hand to personally see the Kickers & Punters in action.

In order to attend this camp, you must be out of college and be eligible for the NFL draft.

  • March 17, Las Vegas, NV

You can register for the NFL Free Agent camp HERE (spots will be limited)

COLLEGE LEVEL CAMP

This camp will be ONLY for 4 year university college Kickers & Punters AND Kickers & Punters entering into a 4 year university. 1st year JC and freshman, sophomores and juniors in high school can NOT attend this camp.

This will be a very high level camp that will be run similarly to the TOP 12 and EVENT ELITE camp. Cost of the camp will include accommodations, transportation to the fields and the instruction, and meals. This camp is built for Kickers & Punters looking to dominate the college camp and get ready for the NFL.

  • July 15-17, IMG Academy, FL

TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE CAMP

Elite_Top_12

This camp is open ONLY to those invited personally by Chris Sailer. You are chosen to attend this camp by performing extremely well at either the January or May National Kicking/Punting Events in Las Vegas. Do NOT sign up for this camp unless you have been formally invited by Sailer. Former “TOP 12” and “EVENT ELITE” members includes countless college and NFL players, All-Americans, NFL Pro Bowlers and Super Bowl participants.

The “TOP 12” is chosen after the January Event (VEGAS XXVII) and the “EVENT ELITE” is chosen after the spring Event (VEGAS XXVIII). There are obviously 12 chosen for the “TOP 12” and there is no set number for the “EVENT ELITE”. Those that deserve it and are top of their class in May, get chosen…it could be one, it could be 30.

The success rate of those we have chosen have been selected in the past that go on to play college football (most on scholarship) is over 95%.

  • July 18-20, IMG Academy, FL

Invites go out after each Vegas Event.

UNDERCLASSMEN INVITATIONAL

You will almost think of this Event as a baby TOP 12 & EVENT ELITE Camp. This two day event is a camp that Chris Sailer Kicking will be completely gearing towards the athletes and their parents/guardians. This camp is meant to not only get the athletes headed in the right direction in the beginning of their high school careers, but also their parents. It will provide information regarding nutrition, social media, recruiting, film, education and, of course, on field instruction. This event is just as much for the parents/guardians as it is the athletes!

Early exposure is necessary these days. The Chris Sailer Kicking Underclassmen Invitational is the perfect opportunity to make a name for yourself and solidify your national ranking at the perfect time. The middle of the summer is now the time college coaches build their underclassmen lists. You want to be on that list. This camp will get you there. It is also your first opportunity to prove that you are a “TOP 12” candidate in your class. The camp is set in July for a reason, college coaches asked us to do this. They want the inside track early. Don’t be surprised to see more and more underclassmen offered during the season in the near future.

There will be formal meetings/classroom sessions on individual topics such as: Training (what level is right for the underclassmen athlete, how often, proper techniques), Nutrition and Lifting (Good habits, bad habits), Social Media (Setting up and using the proper social media outlets – this has become a must), Filming (proper angles, techniques, times, set up), Education (the importance of it, standards, year by year plan)

  • July 21-22, IMG Academy, FL

Invites go out in May.
