LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing any other sports?
NK: During this offseason, I am working on building more strength and speed so I can be at the top of my game for my senior season. I am in a winter weight lifting program through my school that is offered five days a week. I am also taking speed and conditioning camps at Don Beebe House of Speed every Sunday, and I will be taking the Lineman Camp offered by Don Beebe as well during the spring. On top of that, I am throwing shot for my school’s track team.
LPI: You do not have any offers as of right now, but I think it’s only a matter of time before you get that first offer. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
NK: I think I can bring a very strong work ethic to a college football program. I pride myself in being an offensive lineman that can get to the next level and zone block very well. I also think I show very good leadership on and off the field.
LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?
NK: University of Illinois, Western Illinois, Kansas University, Murray State, Lindenwood University, Illinois State, Northern Illinois, Colgate, and Syracuse, have all showed interest and I have talked over the phone or through email with all of them.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or college camps set?
NK: All of my visits are scheduled for April. I am planning on visiting all of these schools and hopefully more.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?
NK: I am always teaching kids the tradition at our school which is always giving 100% whether it is during school or on the field. Stressing effort to underclassmen is important to me as well because I want Morris to keep winning games even when I am gone, like the upperclassmen showed me when I was younger.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by college coaches?
Nolan Fenney – All around most explosive trench player I have played with. I have been playing with him since peewee football and nothing amazes me more than his work ethic. This kid has a motor.
Brennan Goff – Solid offensive lineman that I have played next to for the past three years. Has great technique and out works every kid he goes against. He is also a beast in the gym.
Kam Dransfeldt – Stud RB/SS that has natural skill. Gives everything he has every play in every game and every practice. He’s all around the best skills player I have played with.
