After the 2009 high school football season, a successful quarterback from Walt Whitman High School (MD) who posted impressive numbers committed to an ACC school (Anthony Young-Wiseman to Duke). Now, Henry Kuhn is trying to follow in his footsteps.
Kuhn, a 6'1" 190 pound junior, completed just under 50% of his passes for 1,427 yards and 11 touchdowns, leading the Whitman Vikings to an 8-2 regular season record, rebounding from a 4-6 record in the 2008-09 season.
"We came together well and surprised many people," he said. "Overall, it was a very good year and making it to the playoffs was a big accomplishment for me and the entire team."
Kuhn was happy with his performance in the first five games of the season, but said he was disappointed with how the year ended. Against perennial power Quince Orchard and against the perennially struggling Bethesda-Chevy Chase, Kuhn collected back-to-back three touchdown performances.
In order to improve his game for next season, Kuhn is looking to work on his "footwork and speed," and said he has been "working out everyday since the end of the season to improve on those two parts of the game."
Kuhn's father, Jim, is the head coach at Whitman, and the quarterback says that has helped his development immensely.
"My strengths are my arm strength and my knowledge of the game," he said. "With my dad being the coach, all we talk about is football so I've been able to not only play the game but know the game very well."
The quarterback's recruiting has started to pick up, as he has received interest from many FCS schools. While he is not holding any offers yet, Kuhn has heard from a wide variety of schools, most notably Maryland, Towson, and Delaware.
Kuhn said there is nothing he doesn't like about Maryland, and that the school appeals to him.
"What I like most about Maryland is their football atmosphere and facilities," he said. "For example, their stadium and weight room."
With a strong senior campaign, offers will come for the Vikings' quarterback. Time will tell if one of those comes from the Terps.
