The Nex-Tech Wireless Central Kansas Athlete of the Month is Smith Center senior lineman Dalton Kuhn for leading the Redmen to the 2-1A state football title with a dominating victory over St. Mary's Colgan.
Kuhn has size, is quick and is powerful to say the least. You should take a glance at his HUDL video just to see what exactly what we are talking about, that is if you like hard hits. The 6’2” 235-pound senior had 95 tackles this season, 20 of which went for loss, in limited time due to blowouts in many games. The Redmen defense was one of the most impressive units in the state as they won their first state title since 2008. Kuhn has an offer from Fort Hays State and a preferred walk-on offer from Kansas State, which is very elite as the Cats only offer about a hand full of those out in Kansas a year. Smith Center only allowed 35 points over their last 10 games of the season and outscored opponents 242-to-21 in four 2-1A playoff games. Kuhn also helped pave the way for nearly 340 rushing yards per game in 2017. He was also named the Sports in Kansas All-Classes Player of the year, the Sports in Kansas 2-1A Player of the Year and named to the Top 11 squads (all-classes) by the Topeka Capital-Journal and Wichita Eagle.
Nex-Tech Wireless Would like to congratulate Dalton and the Smith Center Redmen on the 2-1A State Title.
