Coming off a season in which he threw for nearly 2,200 yards, Kyle Winkler of Chatfield High School established himself as potentially the top QB in Colorado for the class of 2015. Beyond the yardage numbers Winkler is a model of efficiency completing 68% of his passes with 25 touchdowns against only four interceptions.
Winkler's production, skill set and leadership in guiding Chatfield to playoffs caught the attention of not only Colorado high school football fans but also colleges. Currently Winkler reports early Ivy and Patriot League contacts as well as mail from Colorado. Winkler, who carries a 4.5 weighted GPA, is hearing from Harvard, Penn, Princeton, Bucknell and Dartmouth. Each of the schools has invited Winkler to camp this summer. Regarding playing in the Ivy League Winkler says, "I would be interested in the Ivy League, but of course I would also love to play at an FBS program."
This offseason, along with playing baseball, Winkler plans on attending camps of schools that are showing the most interest. Since the end of football season Winkler has put on good weight and grown and is now 6-1 190 pounds.
Film review of Winkler shows a quarterback that is comfortable in every facet of the position. Winkler makes quick reads, can make the necessary throws and is comfortable throwing from the pocket and on the run.
At the next level Winkler feels he can bring a college program, "intelligent leadership to a team, poise under pressure and the ability to deliver an accurate ball on time."
