"We're stil playing," James told Dawgman.com. "We play against Garces out of Bakersfield on Friday." Kenny has 37 touchdowns and 2400 yards tallied up this year to add on to the 2413 yards and 54 touchdowns last year.
"I'm very happy with my year," Kenny said when asked
to compare this year with last. "I couldn't be happier. I think I improved on my running style a
lot this year. I think I'm faster and stronger. I think I improved a lot with cutting against the grain
at full speed. Last year I had a great season and I wasn't quite clicking like I was earlier in the
year, so I'm happy with having something similar this year."
Coaches are chomping at the bit, waiting for Dos Palos to finish out their year before getting
James all to themselves. Kenny has an official trip set up with Washington on
December 14th, and has actually already officially visited Washington State. "I went
a couple of weeks ago," James said. "I went up there when they played UCLA. They played
with a lot of intensity and the crowd was into it. It was a pretty nice atmosphere."
Those are the only two trips set up for James, and he has current offers from WSU,
Fresno State and Arizona.
James just finished up an in-home visit with Washington Recruiting Coordinator Chuck Heater.
"He was just telling me that I would be a great addition to their program and that I could start as
a freshman," Kenny said. "They like my running style. I have the ability to cut back against the
grain at full speed. I can run around you or through you. They like the type of running back I am
and the type of running style that I have." He has another in-home scheduled Monday with
Fresno State Head Coach Pat Hill.
Kenny's family has a unique tie to the northwest, one that has been built up through the
friendship of an old Dos Palos neighbor and former Seattle Mariner. "Well, I have a close friend
of the family in Dave Henderson," he said. "He grew up in Dos Palos. He still comes around,
and every time he comes around I talk to him and he talks about how the University of
Washington is a good school."
But that pesky scholarship offer from the Husky coaches hasn't shown up yet. "That hasn't
come up yet, but most likely I'm hoping that will happen," James said when asked if he thinks
he'll be offered on his official visit.
And if that scenario came through, would James give consideration towards a verbal
commitment? "Well, you know, if they offered me on my visit I think there would be a good
chance of me going there, but I want to take all my visits," he said. "After I take all my visits
then I'll make my decision as to where I'll go."
James is taking the SAT this Saturday.
