Cody Parkey, ranked #2 nationally by, stands out on the first day of the Chris Sailer Top 12 in Los Angeles...

Tuesday July 7, 2009: 

40 of the very best K/P arrived in Los Angeles, CA today to participate in the "TOP 12" and "Event Elite" Camp. This is the only national invite camp in the country that brings such a great depth and talent across the board to one camp, one place, one time. These players have all earned their right to participate through competiting on the biggest stage in Las Vegas, CA at the Annual Chris Sailer Kicking Events Sponsored by Nike. They were selected from over 700 participants from across the country and world. The talent this year is the best I ever seen top to bottom. 

Day One Results: 
Field Goal: 4 players earned the right to compete in the head to head championship round by winning smaller competitions. 

Semi Finals: 
Kyle French (WI) vs. Mason Krysinski (MI)
Winner: French

Cody Parkey (FL) vs. Pablo Beltran (TX)
Winner: Parkey

Parkey vs. French
Winner: Parkey

Field Goal Competition #2: Last Man Standing. This is a staple at every Chris Sailer Kicking Camp. This was the largest stage.
Winner: Logan Bass (SC)

Notes From Day 1: 

Cody Parkey easily proved why he is the #1 kicker in the nation. His talent was unmatched. Best combination of strength, accuracy, and technique. Congratulations to Cody. 

Kyle French had a huge day. Made a jump from #11 in the rankings to #4. Kyle is simply a D1A ready field goal kicker. Offer Now!!!

Drew BasilKip Smith, and Cade Foster were steady as always.

Zach Hoffman and William Russ made big jumps today. Both earned a 5.0 star rating and moved up the rankings.

Matt Darr held on to his #1 punt rankings. He is a special talent. However Sadler and others look to continue to push him Day #2 where the major focus turns to punting. 

Check back tomorrow for Day #2 results....
