Versatile Niagara athlete commits

Guelph has relied on the Niagara Region for a lot of its recruits in recent years.  But I don’t ever remember them bringing in five players from a single team.  But such was the talent on this year’s Niagara champions – St Paul Patriots.  A key member of that team was Kory Kemp.  He lined up at fullback on O and outside linebacker on D. 

Kemp  made big plays on both sides of the ball in St Paul’s biggest win of the year, a comeback victory over the Peel Region champions.  He took a pass reception 62 yards to paydirt in the first minute and sealed the game with a 22 yard pick 6.

The hard hitting Kemp was the Patriots Defensive Player-of-the-Year.  A tough nosed kid, I expect his future with the Gryphons will be in the defensive backfield.  But if you watch Ryan Nieuwesteeg’s highlights you will see plenty of Kemp’s work [#21] as a lead blocker.  Kemp was an offensive threat in his own right.  Game reports will tell you he scored plenty of TDs of his own.
