Andover Central's QB Kai Kunz added to national All-American Bowl watch list
The recognition keeps rolling in for Andover Central's Kai Kunz.
The senior quarterback was named to the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl watch list on Monday morning. It's just another notch in the cap of a fantastic summer for Kunz.
The Blue-Grey All-American Bowl is a national all-star game that is hosted at NFL stadiums, most recently at the Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium and the home of Super Bowl LV, Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium and Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium.
Blue-Grey football hosts multiple regional and super regional combines and typically will host four all-star games in a given year.
Former Butler Grizzly and current Kansas City Chief, Byron Pringle was the offensive MVP of the 2013 North-South game.
In 2020, there were four players from the state of Kansas who qualified for one of the All-American bowls. From 2015 through 2018, there were seven players from the Sunflower state who played in one of their all-star games.
He has been invited to and performed in the Dallas area Showcase, UT-San Antonio football camp and the Vanderbilt football camp.
Kunz transferred in the spring from Kapaun Mt. Carmel High in Wichita, Kansas where he was the back-up quarterback as the Crusaders had a very successful season. He finished 15-of-23 on the year for 185 yards and a touchdown. He also ran 298 yards on 60 carries and four touchdowns.
Central will be replacing Chase White, who threw for over 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns.
