Kyle led his defense to a 38-0 thrashing of Hunterdon Central in their state championship finale this past season. Not only is he a vocal leader for his team, but he also leads by example. Polk headlined a suffocating defense by averaging 14 tackles per game for The Chiefs in 2008.
At 6'0 200 pounds, Polk definitely has the tangibles to be a big-time middle linebacker prospect. He lives for the contact of the game and has no problem mixing it up." I'm a sideline- to-sideline player. I like to be all over the field. If I don't make the tackle, I like to be around it," Polk said. That attitude lead to Polk ending up with an astounding mark of over 150 tackles and 1 interception that went back for a touchdown.
The 1st Team All-Middlesex County star is not satisfied with this past season's championship. " I want another championship. I am not satisfied. I want to get one with the guys I came in with. I'm working hard doing a lot of linebacker drills and working on my speed so we can do it again," said Polk.
Klye is currently being recruited by Rutgers, Michigan State, Boise State, Temple, Duke, Cincinnati, and Maryland. At this point, Kyle has no offers but will be most interested in the program that shows him the most attention. Academics as well as comfortability and family atmosphere are most important to him.
As for his feelings about Rutgers, he stated "Rutgers is cool. I really like the facilities, its close, my family loves it and there are already former P'way players that I know there".
