What makes you stand out as a future collegiate athlete?

My ability to read plays quickly, shed blocks, and play aggressively. Also my ability to outwork everyone off the field. Very coachable. 95 tackles and 1st team all-region.

Kiernan was very productive his junior year making tackles all over the field, and was 190 lbs soaking wet. He’s add about 15-25 lbs though and closer to 215 lbs. now, which is remarkable how quickly he has amassed weight this offseason. The high football IQ linebacker always seems to have a beat on the football play, and what I like the most is effort level. Kiernan just goes 100% on each play – putting his body on the line to make the stop. He added about 50 lbs to each lift during his soph-jr offseason, and would like to do the same during this offseason. If Kiernan gets closer to 220 (he’s now at 210-215 lbs reportedly), he could be a potential All-State candidate in Class A. Open field tackling is his best skill, and with more strength his efficiency at getting the ball carrier should only improve. Kiernan reads the play and explodes through his tackles right at the numbers of the ball carrier. He does a very good job of reading the offensive player from a distance and gets low on his tackle attempts.
