One of the warriors of Colorado high school football, Kenton Hewitt, from Heritage High School, plays hard on every down from his defensive tackle and center position. Hewitt’s tenacious play has captured the attention of multiple college teams and despite no offers, schools may be getting close.
The 6-1 275 pound Hewitt is not explosive, but he has very good feet and hands and holds up very well against the double team. Hewitt is also very adept at batting down balls during his pass rush. Hewitt prefers playing defensive tackle, but he says numerous schools would like to look at him as a center. In the phone booth, on both sides of the ball, Hewitt is tough to beat.
In an attempt to gain a first offer, Hewitt has extensive plans this offseason. When PrepColorado caught up with him, Hewitt was coming home from Junior Day at Montana State. Regarding Montana State Hewitt says, “It was good, I enjoyed it a lot!”
Beyond Montana State, Hewitt was able to make a visit to CSU-Pueblo for a game this past season. Hewitt has also had contact with Air Force, Montana, Drake, Northern Colorado and Dartmouth. Hewitt would like to take a visit to Drake and potentially Dartmouth. Hewitt really wants to hit big man camps at CSU-Pueblo and Montana. He also would like to go to Colorado camp. Another bonus for Hewitt is his strong work in the classroom. Boasting a 3.72 GPA, Dartmouth, Air Force and Drake are academic possibilities.
Looking at his game Hewitt cites speed and conditioning as offseason areas of improvement stating, “I'd like to work on my speed and make sure I'm well-conditioned to play both sides of the ball all four quarters.”
Hardworking on and off the field, with good strength, sneaky athleticism and intelligence, Hewitt will make a good fit for the right program.
