The question posed to Kaleb Prewett was simple: Do you want to play free safety or strong safety at Kansas State?
His answer was even simpler.
“I just want to play,” Prewett said. “I could play wide receiver, cornerback, linebacker, defensive end … Anywhere they want.”
Never miss a local story.
“Yes sir,” Prewett replied. “I am a football player. I just love to play the game. In high school throughout my whole career I played a little bit of everything. I played safety, but I spent some time at defensive end and I came down and stood up and played off the edge. I was a wide receiver. I even threw a touchdown pass. I guess I can play all over.”
That confidence will come in handy for Prewett, especially if the 6-foot-2 Blue Springs senior safety ends up helping the Wildcats on special teams as a freshman next season.
Still, he has higher expectations than that.
“The Kansas State coaches want everyone to come in and compete for a starting spot,” Prewett said. “That is what I am going to do, and that is what I am preparing for physically and mentally. Hopefully I can go in there and play well and win that starting spot.” (more…)
