Washington senior Brock Kimball signed his letter of intent Thursday to play football next fall at Missouri Western (St. Joseph, Mo.). A 6-2, 185 pound wide receiver and defensive back for the Demons, Kimball will move to the defensive side of the ball on a full-time basis for the Griffins and head coach Jerry Partridge, who says, “Brock is probably the most physical defensive back in this class. He is very long and has good speed. He is a very good student as well.”
As well as being a member of the National Honor Society, Kimball was named 1st Team All-District and All-Golden Triangle team and participated in the Iowa Shrine Bowl. His senior season, Kimball had two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown and finished fifth on the team with 58 tackles. Kimball also caught 33 passes for 457 yards and six scores.
Demon head coach Randy Schrader said this reward was all about Kimball’s hard work. “Brock’s worked hard and put himself in a situation to be successful. He’s being rewarded for the time and effort he’s put in in the weight room and in the offseason and on the field and just being an athlete.”
As for Brock, he said Missouri Western was a great fit for him, on the field and in the classroom. “The facilities there are just amazing. Business management is something I want to go into in they have a real good business program. It was just a great fit for me all around.”
Kimball says he’s projected as a safety but is open for whatever the teams plans are for him. You can hear the entire interview with Brock Kimball and Demon head coach Randy Schrader by clicking on the link below.
