Kenny King Led Horns to Trio of Wins Last Week to Earn Top Athlete Honor

Schulenburg junior basketball player Kenny King has been a starter on the varsity team ever since he was a freshman, displaying his craft in many types of ways. Throughout Schulenburg’s current sixgame win streak, King scored in double-figures in two out of the last three games and filled the rest of the stat sheet while doing so. He’s also a starting wide-receiver and defensive back on the varsity football team. “The thing that makes him so valuable to the team is the stats,” said Schulenburg head boy’s basketball coach Rich Hoogendoorn. “In every category he contributes. He’s got offensive rebounds, steals, assists, so that makes him very valuable in addition to his scoring. He shoots the ball really well. He’s over 60% from the field, which is incredible in this day and age. He’s very valuable with his contribitions.”
