Lest you think the coaching staff is taking a long winters nap after signing day, we've got some more offers out for kids, including a 6'6" QB from Ft. Scott (KS) CC who's originally from Jefferson City, MO:


Also a punter out of Iowa Western CC:


The punter can also do FGs and his brother was a 5* kicker who's at Penn State. Also...this has gotta sting:

I like the QBs film. Nice touch, throws a very catchable ball. Also has pretty good feet. Not going to be a 1,000 rusher, but can run enough to be a viable threat. Moves well in the pocket too.

A "GunnarSlinger" at QB and a "Hunter the Punter" to pin them back deep. This could be good.

Yeah, was thinking if he came in and won the kicking job, we'd have a ridiculously huge special teams. Fellner looks and is built like a DE/TE.

Reminds me of a funny story told by a former Met and one time Brewer outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Said he was thinking about playing college football and was on a visit to Colorado, some guys were on the field shirts off and he asked the coach, does that guy play safety? Coach said, no that's Mason Crosby our punter (6-2 215 listing in college). Kirk said, that's when I knew I was going to be a baseball player.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

That’s great to hear but at the time my statement stood true. Haha. But, nevertheless excited to have QB on our roster.

I did not know Midwestern Prep Academy existed. They must be using some facilities from the old Chanute Air Force Base.

Same here. Their facilities look pretty decent though: http://www.midwestprepacademy.com/
Yeah, looks like that's the area they're located in...large open spaces and fields to the west of the runways.

Beck himself is from Burlington, IA...so a fairly local kid.
