LPI: What were the most important things you did this offseason and are now doing in practice so you can improve this season?

KR: The most important thing I did in the offseason was creating a better bond with my team. We all came together as a team to get in the weight room and ran routes in the cold.

LPI: You currently have offers from Wyoming and Southeast Missouri. What are your greatest strengths or why should a school offer you?

KR: My greatest strength is my speed and quickness. Another strength I have is speaking by my actions and leading by example.

LPI: Offer or not, which schools have you kept in contact with the most?

KR: NIU, Ball State, Missouri State, Murray State, Central Michigan, and Southeast Missouri.

LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any visits coming up?

KR: Most recent was at NIU, last month. I plan to take my official visit to Wyoming sometime in December. I plan to visit Ball State really soon as well.

LPI: With the playoffs starting soon, what’re your personal goals for the rest of this season?

KR: My personal goals for the rest of the season is to continue lead my team through the playoffs. Our personal goal is to go 1-0 every week.

LPI: You guys are now 7-2 this year and look primed for a deep playoff run. What are you team goals for this year and how are you guys going to achieve them?

KR: Our goal is to be holding a trophy at the end of the season. We always say go 1-0 every week. We will achieve this by work hard and continue to take great coaching.

LPI: Who are some of your other teammates that you believe have a chance to play at the next level, but may be getting overlooked by college coaches?

KR: Honestly think my whole team can play at the next level. Guylon Moore is a great leader and is tough to break. Rashad Brown has a confidence out of this world. Isaiah Davis never backs down from a challenge and is always determined. Armone Elem someone I’ve played with since 7th grade and he is the best high school athlete I’ve ever played with.
