Sailer Charlotte kicking camp recap

CHARLOTTE -- Chris Sailer Kicking and Chris Rubio Long Snapping recently put on a Nike spring in North Carolina and the camp was loaded with talent. Take a look at who stepped up and who you can expect to see playing on Saturdays in the near future.

Kicker/punter standouts

Dylan Sims, 6-0, 185 (Forest, Va./Jefferson Forest)
The camp champion stepped up and won two of the four major competitions. He has a huge leg and shows a ton of potential. He kicks off the ground and hit field goals of up to 60 yards. His kickoffs were also solid averaging 65-70 yards with 3.8 to 4.0 seconds of hang time. Sims has the talent, work ethic and potential to impress college coaches at all levels.

Paul Griggs, 6-1, 195 (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Latin)
By far the most polished and FBS ready kicker at the camp. Kicks field goals off the ground and gets outstanding height on them with great accuracy. He has range up to 60 yards. His kickoffs are FBS ready as well and his mental toughness is second to none.

Worth Gregory, 6-4, 185 (Fort Mill, S.C./Fort Mill)
Worth had an incredible performance in Charlotte. The punt champion showed marked improvement and great consistency. By far the best punter at the camp, averaging over 40 yards and 4.5 to 4.9 seconds of hang time. He has the frame, strength and athleticism to be a great FBS punter.

2012 class standouts: Connor Haskins (N.C.), Daley Hall (N.C.) and Ethan Epps (S.C.)

2013 class standouts: Wes Medeiros (N.C.), Alexander Biby (N.C.), Manning Burton (N.C.) and Blake Brewer (N.C.)

Long snapper standouts

Joe Marvin, 6-4, 225 (Washington, D.C./Gonzaga College)
The camp champion has an exceptional frame for a long snapper and is very smooth and accurate. He handles pressure very well.

Patrick Gerrits, 6-1, 225 (Wellington, Fla./Wellington)
He continues to be a dominant long snapper who is extremely accurate and consistent. The bigger and stronger he gets, the better he becomes.

Ben Groelke, 5-11, 185 (Raleigh, N.C./Leesville Road)
He was a very strong long snapper who uses his body well.
