Kenton Brossett is a Class of 2023 Wide Receiver from Huntington High School in Shreveport, LA, and he is playing 7v7 football with The U Elite. He is 6’3” and 200 lbs, and a Gridiron Football 3 Star Prospect. He is big play wide receiver, who can go up and get 50/50 balls. He is very good at finding holes in the zone and beating his man in man coverage. He uses his body well, and will be able to translate that to the next level.
How long have you been playing football?
Kenton: I’ve been playing since I was 3, I was a big kid at the age of 3, so I played up at 4u and have been playing ever since.
How would you describe your role on the team last season?
K: My role was, coming off an injury, working my way back into the offense. I was making sure I worked on my blocking, making sure my guys could score, and then when they counted on me, I did what I could to make it happen.
What would you say is your biggest strength?
K: Last season, my route running was my biggest strength. I am good at getting open and getting the 50/50 ball. I also care deeply about blocking; I want to see my team succeed no matter what and my blocking helps the team the most. Off the field, I’m big in my schoolwork, ensuring I get good grades, and I want to be a leader to the team, to the little kids around, and to the community. Shreveport is a rough area, with a high crime rate and not a lot of role models, so I try really hard to be a stand up role model for these kids.
What do you need to improve on the most to make sure you’re successful at the next level?
K: I want to improve on my speed, my explosiveness, and most importantly, my route running. At the next level, it is harder to get open, and playing receiver is all about getting open for your QB. I have also been in the weight room, more so than any offseason.
Who would you compare yourself to, in college or the NFL?
K: At the NFL level, growing up I always watched Dez Bryant and Mike Evans, and I wanted to perfect my game like them. Mike Evans knows how to use his body well, and Dez had a mentality I wanted, that he just wants to win.
What is your goal for this upcoming season with Huntington?
K: My goal, personally, is to get better. I want to win a state championship, of course, but I want to translate all my work in the offseason to the games. I want to be better than last year, and to show people that I am the best receiver in my area.
What are you going to bring to the college team that recruits you?
K: I’m gonna bring an off the field leader, stand-up guy, with good grades, and helps the college community. On the field, I am going to give them my all, regardless of what they need. I will try my best above everything else.
