AOW: Brett Kaiser of KCHS Football
The first week of High School football is in the books and for the Kearney Catholic Stars the sky is the limit. Thanks to wide receiver Brett Kaiser who started off week one with a bang. Racking up 165 yards in just five receptions.
"I was just lucky to break away from some defenders and get into the open field," Kaiser said. "Being able to make a couple guys miss here and there, but I just got to stay humble with it all." "It's just awesome when you're in that moment because you don't get many of those in life," Kaiser continued.
With these numbers under his belt, Head Coach Rashawn Harvey has high expectations for his lead wide receiver this seaosn.
"We just expect a lot out of Brett as a senior," Harvey said. "He's a great leader for us and he leads by example both on the field and in the classroom, so we're very proud of him."
Quarterback Matt masker is probably proud to have Kaiser as a weapon to. Connecting with his number one receiver on two touchdown passes each for over 60 yards.
"You got to feel great with the number one quarterback in the state back there," Kaiser stated. "I mean we've been playing together for years now, he kind of knows where I'm going to be and I know he's going to put the ball there."
"We just trust each other really well and the chemistry is always right there," Kaiser continued.
Kaiser even showed us he's got some talent in the passing game. Going deep 30 yards down field and into the hands of Jason Seitz.
"You know I was just lucky that my receiver was wide open," Kaiser said. "Because I just happen to loft it in there and I can't throw lasers by any means it was more of a floater," Kaiser continued. "But hey it got the job done and we scored."
The Stars call this their wide reciever key pass that fakes the defense thinking it's a run.
"We got a play action off of it which involves the receiver throwing the ball," coach Harvey said. "Brett did a good job of faking that as if he was going to run the ball," Harvey continued. "So he's a great actor on that play which caused the defense to react to the run."
Racking up more than half his teams total in the passing game, averaging 33 yards per catch, and responsible for three of his teams five touchdowns, this Kearney Catholic Star shined brighter than the stadium lights.
"We worked hard all summer," Kaiser stated. "To know that we came out game one ready to go and just had a big game in general, so it's a great feeling."
Kearney Catholic kicks off week two at home against Grand Island Central Catholic Sep. 1st at 7:00pm.
