Kier signs to play Division I football in Texas

Hunter Kier

Washington native Hunter Kier, who has played football at Butler Community College the past two seasons, above, will move to Texas in January as he prepares to follow his dreams of playing Division 1 football.

Hunter Kier was getting ready to start his college career at Butler Community College two seasons ago when he asked equipment managers for a practice jersey.

The managers handed him a green jersey, the required color for kickers instead of the standard purple or gold of BCC.

He said he was a linebacker and thus needed a standard jersey.

The staff chuckled, as Kier told it on social media, thinking he was too small to play that position.

Wildcats boy and girls run by Onaga

The Hanover boys continued to dominate the competition on Friday at Onaga. Scoring 24 points in the first quarter and 23 in the second, the Wildcats cruised to a 72-30 win. Dawson Sedlacek led the team with 17 points, including four 3-pointers. “Our intensity was good early, but we took some possession off,” said Head Coach Kim Lohse. “We got a little sloppy on both ends of the court and didn’t look like a very good basketball team. Our discipline has to be better, especially on the defensive end as we were called for a lot of fouls for no moving our feet and a lot of reaching.”
