My name is Kenneth W. Eiden, IV. I am a sophomore at Bozeman High School in Bozeman, Montana. I have a 3.95 cumulative GPA. I am 6' 1", weigh 225 lbs, and my most current 40 yard dash time is 4.73 hand scored in Bozeman, MT, August, 2017. My most current lasered 40 yard dash time is a 5.20 at the NextGen Futures Combine with Zybek Laser scoring, January 2017. I scored in the Top 3 L-Drill Shuttle (3 cone) Class of 2021 times at the NextGen Futures Combine, again with Zybek Laser scoring in January 2017. My current 5-10-5 time is 4.26 hand scored at Oklahoma State University football camp July 2018.
I play tight end, defensive end, running back, and kick off return. I have attended three FBU Camps, the FBU Top Gun Showcase, and I played inline tight end in the FBU Freshmen All-American Game in Naples, Florida, on Dec. 20, 2017. I attended the NextGen The Show in Denton, TX in 2017 and also the Clemson University High School football camp as well as the Montana State University High School Teams camp, both in 2017. In 2018 I was named to the NextGen Fab 50 list and have received an invite to the NextGen The Show in Atlanta, June 2018. I was also invited to the FBU Texas Showdown in May 2018 and to the FBU Top Gun Showcase in July 2018. I have attended FBU San Antonio, March 2018, MSU Teams Camp June 2018, Stanford University Skills Camp June 2018 and Oklahoma State University skills camp July 2018. I have been invited to The 2019 National Combine at The All-American Bowl at the Alamo Dome, Jan. 2019. I received an invite to The Nike Opening Regional Camps for Spring 2019. I am planning on attending the one in Oakland, CA in May 2019.
In November 2018 I was named to the Montana Class AA 1st Team All-State Selections List, as well as the 1st Team All-Conference List, and also earned Academic All-State honors. I also earned my Academic Letter in October 2018 and plan to earn a new pin each semester of high school for the Project Excel program at my high school for top grades.
In addition to football, I have also played both local and AAU travel basketball for seven seasons. I was the starting tip off/center/power forward for the Bozeman Hawks Freshmen A team 2017-2018 season. We went 12-0 conference and 16-2 season. I averaged 18 points per game with my last game scoring 34. I played in the BHS Basketball Camp June 2018 on the JV team, and on the Varsity squad for the Gonzaga Teams basketball camp June 2018. In November 2018 I made the JV roster for 2 quarters per game and the Varsity roster for 3 quarters per game, as a sophomore. On Thursday, January 31st, 2019 I was the 2nd highest scorer and top rebounder on Varsity for our game vs. Billings Senior.
For the past three years I have played on an all-state AAU basketball team out of Missoula & Billings, MT and have really enjoyed it. We have played all out of state tournaments and have been very successful! In 2016 we won three out of four tournaments we attended. In 2017 we won two out of three tournaments we entered and fourth place in the third tournament where we played up two age brackets. In May 2018 we played in Lakewood, CO and won 3 out of 4 games.
In addition to football and basketball, I have played club lacrosse for six seasons and two summers with the Bozeman Lacrosse League. I play center mid fielder/face off and in 2016 I was honored to play up on the U15 team. In 2017 I was given the opportunity to play up again, in the High School division as a middle schooler. I led the state of Montana in scoring, face offs won, and ground balls won, for all varsity and junior varsity players. I made varsity this year Spring 2018, as a freshman, and we won the State Championship on May 20, 2018!!! That was a GREAT day!!
I can offer a team someone who tries to get the best out of everyone. I understand that without the other ten guys on the field, or four guys on the court, I would have no success at all. I play team sports and the chemistry among the entire team is the key to success. I always strive to be the best through hard work, maximum effort, a positive attitude, and focus. My father’s favorite quote is “Attitude and effort equal everything!”.
I don’t have any particular colleges I would like to attend at the moment, although I am interested in studying business or engineering and I would like a school that has excellent programs in those fields of study, as well as a successful football program, and possibly a club lacrosse team or intramural basketball program. My main goal at this point is to play at the DI A, or AA, or DII level at a school that has a medium to large student body, and a strong business and/or engineering program. I am comfortable attending whichever school will give me the best chance for success both academically and athletically, and will allow me to make a positive impact on their team.
