Conner Richardson (6-2 210 Jr. QB)

Zach Nobmann ( 5-10 220 Jr. LB)

Drew Thompson (6-3 185 Jr. WR)














A kid we will hear a lot about over the coming year is Conner Richardson (6-2 210 Jr. QB) of Kennedy Catholic. He’s a strong armed athlete with legit size and the work ethic to boot. Richardson is a kid with unlimited potential and some of the intangibles that could help him have very successful year behind center.

Last Season Richardson earned all conference honors as a wide receiver which spoke to his overall athleticism, but he looks the part as a QB. He has a rifle for an arm, and and athletic frame that make him a threat to take off and gain yards on the ground. His abilities after the catch as a receiver show what could he do running the ball if he chooses. The kids not going to be easy to bring down, and if your not careful he will truck you.

Adding to Kennedy’s crew that we have seen out on the NEI/Barton Camp and Combine Tour is one of Washington’s potential top receivers in Drew Thompson (6-3 185 Jr. WR/S), and the 2011 Seamount conference leader in tackles Zach Nobmann (5-10 220 Jr. LB). All three of these kids have more then proved themselves over the last few months, as Kennedy should be a team to be reckoned with on a state wide level in 2012.

The Lancers went (8-2) last season losing to two very tough opponents in Arch Bishop Murphy and Camas. The kids from Burien have a unique hora about them with their leader Richardson coming back after moving to what he calls, “a much more natural position” referring to the QB spot. Conner led Kennedy in catches, receiving yards, and receiving Tds in 2011 after Wyoming bound athlete Jason Thompson took the snaps. There is no shame in playing behind a legit D1 athlete, and Richardson refuses to be out worked.

Conner will have a very talented overall athlete in Thompson to throw to, and Nobmann will be back to lead a defense that shut down everybody in the Conference. Kennedy crushed league opponents going (6-0) and outscoring teams 291-56 within the league.

Richardson says, ” playing wide receiver and safety was an excellent way of contributing to my team, although I would have loved to play the position I am most passionate about by starting at QB”, he continued ” I was very pleased by the way our team played last year and the contribution I was able to make”.

Look for a big year from all three of these athletes, and the Kennedy program as a whole. We will look forward to following Richardson and the Lancers as they are one of the classiest and most talented group of kids you are going to find.
