More football as well
A year ago, Kilby returned to the football field after a two-year absence “just because I missed it a lot” and immediately made an impact at a quarterback-receiver-DB combo. Then suddenly, he was handed the football by head coach Matt Weber.
“It was a unique opportunity. All I really did was do what coach Weber told me to do,” Kilby said about taking over the starting signal-caller job when Tryce Prince injured a shoulder in Game 3 against Durant and sat out most of the rest of the season. Kilby passed for 1,275 yards, leading Ada to an 8-4, first-round playoff season.
