 Kempin Receives Big Time Honors

Jonathan Kempin, GK for the U16's, was honored yesterday as the GATORADE Kansas State Player of the Year. The Gatorade Player of the Year recognizes one player from each of the 50 States and then the rest is up to us to make sure Kempin gets voted for the National Player of the Year. Don't worry we will remind you when and where to vote when the time comes...its not until April. If this happens he will join the likes of Landon Donovan, Tony Meola, Claudio Reyna just to name a few.

This is the 25th year ESPN Rise and Gatorade has given out this award. The award, which recognizes not only outstanding excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the field, distinguishes Kempin as Kansas' best high school boys soccer player.
