Chris Sailer Kicking put on its annual National Kicking and Snapping Event, sponsored by Nike, January 16-17, 2010. The Event took place at UNLV in Las Vegas.
Over 400 total participants traveled to Las Vegas in hopes of gaining great instruction, competing against the best in the nation, and gaining huge national exposure. Nearly every state in the nation was represented along with players from Canada and Australia. The staff consisted of former NFL All-Pros and Collegiate Lou Groza Award Winners.
Chris Sailer and Chris Rubio coach and evaluate over the course of the two days. All players hope to chart out well and land a spot on the coveted recruiting exposure list, the "TOP 12". Former "TOP 12" members include: Ryan Succop (Kansas City Chiefs), and 2 Lou Groza Award Winners. The stakes were high and the pressure was on. As always, some great performances have made big names for a select few.
