PROFILE:

FIFL Experience: Drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, 67th overall, by the Fargo Freeze. One rush for -6 in 2010. One FR in 2012 and in 2017 and 2 FR in 2018. Second most Field Goals in a season (33) with Lexington in 2015, with the record at 34 by Frank Biancamano. Signed week 9 of the 2023 FIFL season after the struggles of rookie kicker Craig Petersen. In his last regular season FIFL game, Sailer was 2/2 on XPT's and 2/2 on FG's with a long of 50 and a tackle in a 20-21 road loss to Tennessee. His last career game was the following week in a 12-15 playoff loss to the same Tennessee team, going 1/1 on XPT's and 1/1 on FG's, kicking a 28-yarder.

Professional Experience: Sailer signed with the San Francisco 49ers in the National Football League in 1999, and played for the Los Angeles Dragons of the Spring Football League in 2000. Sailer played five years in the Arena Football League, playing for the San Jose SaberCats in 2000, Oklahoma Wranglers in 2001, then the Arizona Rattlers in 2002-2003 and again in 2005.

College Experience: Sailer decided to attend the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), because Bruins football coach Terry Donahue and soccer coach Sigi Schmid allowed him to play both sports, even though the two teams' seasons overlap. His athletic scholarship was rare for a kicker, a position which coaches often filled with walk-ons. He put soccer on hold as a freshman to get acclimated to school while playing football. Later, he decided he could not play both, and chose football. As a freshman in 1995, Sailer won the job as punter and ranked 15th in the country with a 42.2 yard average. After kicker Bjorn Merten graduated, Sailer assumed the position in 1997, becoming the first Bruin since Frank Corral in 1977 to handle both punts and kicks. That season, Sailer made four field goals in a 39–31 win over Oregon, including a 56-yard kick that stood as a school record until Ka'imi Fairbairn's 60-yarder in 2015. Sailer finished the season as the runner-up behind Martín Gramática for the Lou Groza Award, given annually to the nation's top college kicker.[10] He was named a first-team All-American kicker by the American Football Coaches Association and the Walter Camp Football Foundation.[11] Additionally, the Football Writers Association of America named Sailer to their first team as a punter. He is the only player in UCLA history to have received first-team All-American honors at two positions in the same season. In his senior year in 1998, Sailer struggled with his field goals after being bothered for most of the season with a groin injury. He suffered the injury during practice when he did not warm up before participating in a kicking duel with a local sports anchorman.

Personal: Sailer was born to Elisabeth and Hans Sailer, who had emigrated in 1969 from West Germany to Burbank, California. His parents were soccer fans who knew nothing about football. They exposed him to soccer early, and he excelled as a youth soccer player. Sailer attended high school in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, where he was both the kicker and punter at Notre Dame High. As a senior, he set a state single-season record with 22 field goals, making seven from 50 yards of more to help his team win a Division III title. He was named to the USA Today All-USA team, and finished his prep career with a state record 33 career field goals. He also played soccer as a defender.
