Chris Sailer Kicking recently visited Chicago, Illinois for its third stop on the Nike Spring Tour. The camp featured specialists from ten different states. The talent was by far the best we have seen in the Midwest in recent years. Take a look at who stepped up and who to expect big things from in the future.
Connor Shennan (2013, Michigan) - The "TOP 12" Kicker had a great all around day. Connor has a big time leg and kicks well under pressure. He kicked field goals well off the ground and really proved himself on kickoffs. He is a D1A scholarship prospect without a doubt.
Top 2013 Prospects:
Michael Geiger (Ohio) - Michael is the best field goal kicker in the nation in the Class of 2013. He is smooth, gets great height off the ground, and is extremely accurate. Michael is also very strong mentally. He is also solid on both kickoffs and punts. A D1 Scholarship Pick right now.
Joel Schipper (Michigan) - Joel is a solid kicker. He has a strong leg, makes kicks with consistency, and kicks off well. I believe that he can challenge at any college level. Joel should have an impressive summer and receive considerable college interest.
Other Top 2013 Prospects: Andrew Asken (IL), Andrew Harte (IL), Andrew Rudolph (IL), James Sykes (CA), Joe Livingston (MI), Nick Neidig (OH), & Sean Slattery (IL)
Top 2014 Prospects:
Hayden Lekacz (Illinois) - Hayden is a tremendous young kicking talent. He has a huge leg and shows big time potential. Look for Hayden to be a top kicker in his class in the coming years.
Jon Duvic (Illinios) - Jon is a great young kicker. He has a strong leg and hits an excellent ball. He shows great poise and makes kicks with consistency.
Michael Knoll (Ohio) - Michael should be a top prospect in this class for years to come. He shows potential as both a kicker and punter. A great athlete that could be one of the very best with hard work.
Other Top 2014 Prospects: Andrew Stark (IL)
Chris Sailer Kicking will next make stops in Charlotte, NC (April 28) and Atlanta, GA (April 29). The final spring event is the 10th Annual National Kicking Spring Event in Las Vegas, NV May 12-13. For more details on all Chris Sailer Kicking Camps, visit www.ChrisSailerKicking.com
