My name is Riley Kennow and I will graduate from high school is 2021. In addition to training for football all year, I also participate in track and field throwing the shot put and discus. As a sophomore, I was on the varsity for both football (started at RG) and track and field. I love competing and really enjoy working as part of a team. Winning is important to me and I am working hard to make sure I can do everything I can to help my teams win. Since the fall football season was over, I have been attending morning weightlifting and agility training every morning at 5:30 a.m. and am very excited about the gains that I am seeing.
Regarding football, I dream about becoming a college football player and, God willing, maybe even getting a chance to play in the NFL one day. My great uncle, Tom Regner, was an All-American at the University of Notre Dame on the 1966 National Championship team and went on to be a first round draft choice of the Houston Oilers, playing for a number of years in the NFL as a guard. Needless to say, my family loves college football and I pray that one day I may be able to suit up on Saturdays after graduating from high school.
Academically, I am really interested in pursuing a degree is Sports Management. I love being around athletics and would love to continue to influence the lives of others in a positive way whether it be in coaching, journalism/broadcasting, recruiting, or other business related operations. While academics are my number one priority and my family keeps me focused on that as my primary responsibility, I know that my passion is playing football and I want to make sure I give myself the best chance possible of playing at the next level. My skills continue to improve each year and I am really excited to see what this upcoming season will bring.
Athletically, I went from starting on the freshman team to starting on varsity as a sophomore. This past year I started on varsity at a new position and was voted 1st Team All-Conference in our Division 1 Southeast Conference in Wisconsin. What I am most excited about is that I know I am far from reaching my potential. I still have room to improve and continue to get positive feedback from coaches I am working with or visiting on my invite days. Needless to say, I am ready to take my game to the next level.
I expect nothing but excellence from myself and I am looking forward to seeing where my hard work and perseverance takes me. My high school football coach, Mr. Paul Hoffman teaches us the philosophy of SISU. Fundamentally, this represents the belief that we will do "whatever it takes" to be successful and get the job done well. I am focused on those things I have control over and look forward to whatever the future holds for me. I am willing to do whatever it takes or whatever coaches want me to do to help their team take that next step.
