Kelly Jennings Honored

by: Michael Steffes

I found this article that I thought was worth shedding some light on. Kelly Jennings, third year corner back, has been named the official spokesperson of the City University of Seattle. His main responsibility will be to speak publicly about the importance of higher education.

Many of you may know this, but Jennings was not the typical University of Miami student. Not only did he excel on the field, but in his four years there he completed two degrees. Clearly he values education as well as athletics.

As for this upcoming year, well Jennings will look to impress. Coaches and fans took notice of his vast improvement last year. He proved to be a very capable cover guy, but his small frame has limited his effectiveness in run support. I know many of you will agree, but I expect Jennings to move beyond just local recognition and get some league wide respect by building upon last years improvement. END
