Sailer Nike Summer Camp Natl. Tour: Chicago

A look at the standouts at the Sailer Nike Summer Camp in Chicago...

Chris Sailer Kicking recently made its second stop in Chicago, IL on the Nike Summer Tour. As usual, many of the top national prospects were in attendance hoping to get instruction, compete against the very best, and gain national exposure. This was the 2nd of five stops on the national summer tour. Take a look at the results.

Champion: Michael Geiger (2013 OH) – Michael had a tremendous all around day. He won 2 of the 4 major competitions and showed great skill at all three kicking positions. Michael was the best player at the camp start to finish. He proved very quickly that he is a big time prospect in next year's class and a top scholarship pick. Expect big things.

Top 2012 Kicker: Anthony Farinella (2012 IL) - Anthony is an incredible talent. The "TOP 12" kicker is an outstanding athlete that shows tremendous potential. He has all the tools to be big time D1A kicker. Hit a kickoff 60+ yards with 4.15 hang time into a stiff wind. Anthony is a top prospect in the Midwest and should earn a scholarship.

Other 2012 Standouts: Camden Bohnart (OK), Kyle Malm (IN), and Sam Retzky (IL)

TOP 2013 Kicker: Connor Shennan (2013 MI) – Behind champion Michael Geiger, Connor was the next best prospect in the Class of 2013. He also won 2 of the 4 major competitions. He has a big time leg and shows phenomenal potential. Connor has a chance to be a scholarship pick with continued hard work.

Other 2013 Standouts: Andrew Gantz (OH), Andrew Endicott (CA), and Joe Livingston (MI)

TOP 2014 Kicker: Mick Ellis (TX) – Although I normally don't mention talent this young, Mick deserves special mention. He kicked as well as most of the 2012 and 2013 prospects. He is a great athlete and future star in this class.
