Commit Recap: Kmet gets late win

Four-star tight end Cole Kmet is settling into the season after missing three games while recovering from mono. Meanwhile, quarterback Avery Davis returned to action this week and the Ademilola brothers got in the backfield more.

Cole Kmet @ suffered through a one-win junior season.

Now that must seem like a distant memory. Kmet, a four-star tight end from Arlington Heights, Ill., is a key player for a St. Viator team that’s now 3-2 after a 17-10 win Friday against Mundelein (Ill.) Carmel.

“We’ve worked so hard,” Kmet said. “My group of seniors, we’ve been great leaders this offseason and working hard in the weight room. Obviously, it’s paying off.”

Kmet made five catches for 26 yards in the win while also contributing a few tackles from defensive end. St.Viator scored with 1:06 remaining to take a 17-10 lead and hold off Carmel as it tried to drive back down the field.

Darreontae Jackson made a short catch then burst into the open field, scampering into the end zone from 60 yards out.

“We were just trying to pound the ball,” Kmet said, “get some progressive plays down the field. Obviously, we broke one there at the end. Whenever you’ve got a kid like that that’s that fast you can get the ball to, we’ve got a ton of weapons. We were able to move it down field then broke one for a touchdown.”

On the season, Kmet has 10 catches for about 118 yards while still seeking his first touchdown in two games. He missed the first three while recuperating from mono.

“I feel good,” Kmet said. “Hopefully in a couple weeks I’ll be able to go both ways full time. But my wind is getting there and I’m feeling good.”
