(Treynor) — Just five years ago, Treynor started and sanctioned a high school soccer program. Now, one of those that took advantage of that fact – Brody Kinnison – is set to continue his soccer career at the next level.
The Cardinals sweeper recently committed to extend that career at Morningside in Sioux City.
“I went up there a few months ago and kind of just got a feel with the team,” Kinnison said. “It felt like a close knit community – kind of like Treynor.”
“Everyone was very friendly,” Kinnison added. “It just felt like the players and everyone (on campus) just integrated together. It just felt right.”
Kinnison said he started playing soccer to spend more time with his friends and remain active.
“I’ve been playing since second grade,” he said. “After awhile, I realized I could get some money off my tuition for college and do something I love.”
Kinnison is one of the leading players for a 2-1 Cardinals team, which lost their opener to KMAland No. 2 Harlan before beating Conestoga and Nodaway Valley by a combined 25-0 score.
“We have a lot of potential,” Kinnison said. “We have a lot of good skill this year. It’ll be fun to see how the season develops. I think we can go a long way this year.”
